Queen & Company - Art Days shaped shaker kit - 6 cards 1 kit

Hello friends! I'm sharing some cards using Queen & Company's newest kit, Art Days Shaped Shaker kit. They seem to be super busy designing new kits this year. I almost can't keep up! This kit includes 8 steel dies, a cute sentiment stamp set, and enough foam/acetate to make 9 shaker cards. Of course, the dies are perfect to make non-shaker cards as well. I also used 6 different Queen & Company paper collections for my cards. It's nice that they sell the paper pads individually.

Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.


Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. For sketches that don't include measurements, I simply figure the measurements out on my own, for what works for me. I also included some sketches by Queen & Company that were designed to work with their Foundation die sets. All of my cards are A2 size. Go HERE to see my video explaining how I determine card sketch measurements. All cards are made using Queen & Company's Art Days Shaped Shaker kit.

Queen & Company - Bring on Spring kit (revisited)

Hello friends! I've been having fun revisiting some of Queen & Company's kits. Since the winter has been quite gloomy lately, I decided the use the Bring on Spring kit next. Maybe just making spring cards will encourage the season to hurry up and arrive.

Go HERE to see my video from last year where I made 29 cards using the Bring on Spring kit.

Unlike the last time I used this kit, I now own the coordinating Outline Dies. Queen & Company recently released outline dies for most of their previous kits. I love having both while creating cards.

Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.



Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. For sketches that don't include measurements, I simply figure the measurements out on my own, for what works for me. All of my cards are A2 size. Go HERE to see my video explaining how I determine card sketch measurements. All cards are made using Queen & Company's Bring on Spring kit.

Honey Bee Stamps - Sweet on You - 25 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! It was time for a new 6x6 video. I used Honey Bee Stamps Sweet on You collection. I had intended on making Valentine's Day cards with this paper pad. But my schedule got a bit busy, so I decided to make lots of Happy Mail and Love cards instead. I really enjoyed the non-traditional colors in this lovely paper collection. Lots of soft oranges and mint greens with the dark blue and black for contrast.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 25 cards.


Because it takes many hours to turn a 6x6 paper pad into cards, this video has been sped up 6 times. The real time recording was just over 5 hours, not including any of my planning, prep, or die cutting time. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.



I've had a few requests to see a picture of all cardstock I first pull before starting on the cards. I always pull out way more cardstock than I ever use.


In addition to using the 6x6 paper pad, I also used 5 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 10 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.

Cardstock colors -  
Black - Recollections
Black Tie - Bazzill
Moody Blue - Bazzill
Peach Fuzz - Coredinations
Aqua - Bazzill


Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. For sketches that don't include measurements, I simply figure the measurements out on my own, for what works for me. I also included some sketches by Queen & Company that were designed to work with their Foundation die sets. All of my cards are A2 size.
