Mojo Monday 6x6 Two Sheet Wonder Challenge

Hello friends! I hope everyone is well and staying safe. The world sure has changed over the past couple months. My whole family is home right now. I'll keep crafting and making videos, but voiceover does get challenging with everyone in the house since my craft room doesn't have a door. I'm also trying to focus on using up products I already own. Many of our favorite craft stores are on Lock Down and can't ship out orders. When they are back up and running, I will make sure to start supporting them again.

I recently tried Mojo Monday's 6x6 Two Sheet Wonder Challenge. It was so fun, I decided to use it again. This time I pulled out some older Doodlebug papers and Lawn Fawn images that I colored years ago. Using just 2 sheets of pattern paper, and cardstock, I made 3 cards.


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

Save the Crafty YouTuber Video Hop

Hello friends! I am so excited to participate in this year's Save the Crafty YouTuber Video Hop. If you aren't familiar with the hop, this is a celebration of talented crafters with so many different styles and tutorials. It's a great opportunity to discover new card makers and to help the smaller channels reach monetization goals.

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



*Be sure to leave a comment by April 5th on my video because there are prizes on every video to give away in this video hop. (Comments on my blog will not count.)

For those not familiar with my channel or card making style, one of my favorite ways to make cards is using 6x6 paper pads and card sketches. I like to use up a paper pad completely before moving onto a new one. You can check out my 6x6 paper pad tutorial HERE.

For my cards, I used some leftover paper scraps from Pink & Main's Summer Splash collection. This was featured in one of their monthly kits last year and that's why I still a little bit leftover. I chose a card sketch that allowed me to use several 2" strips of paper on one card. The sketch was designed as a square card, but I figured out the measurements for an A2 size card instead.




Sketch - MFT #31
Paper - Pink & Main - Summer Splash collection
Sentiment stamp set - Love From Lizi - Snap Happy
Peel off stickers - Love From Lizi
Oval dies - Queen & Company
Small stitched circle die - Pink & Main
Embossing powder - Love From Lizi
Ink - Pink & Main and Versamark
Specialty cardstock - Love From Lizi


NEXT STOP in the hop is TANNA LOHOUSE
