Doodlebug Design's So Much Pun - 31 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

Hello friends! Doodlebug just had to go and make another cute paper collection that I couldn't resist. It's called So Much Pun. This collection is a bit different because it includes a variety of different themes. Food, aliens. floral, dinosaurs. Since not all of the papers go together, it was a bit challenging for me to do my usual 6x6 tutorial.
My favorite papers in this collection are the outer space and dinosaurs. I would LOVE if Doodlebug came out with full collections of both those themes. (Hint, Hint Doodlebug. 😉)
I also purchased the 2 different cardstock sticker sheets, but decided against the Chit Chat die cut pack. Instead, I used the Everyday Greetings stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh for most of my sentiments.

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 31 cards.


Because it takes many hours to use up a 6x6 paper pad, this video has been sped up 7 times. The real time recording was just over 4 hours, not including any of my planning, prep, or die cutting time. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.



In addition to using the 6x6 paper pad, I also used 17 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 1 sheet of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.


Here are close up pictures of the cards I made, including sketches and measurements. Operation Write Home sketches are the only ones that already provide measurements. For all the other sketches, 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 Doodlebug Design's So Much Pun 6x6 paper pad.

Queen & Co. Magical Characters - 34 cards from one 6x6 paper pad

I think I may be addicted to using the fun shaker kits from Queen and Company. I was super excited for their latest release, Magical Characters. I put everything aside just so I could get started on this darling kit.
The Magical Characters paper collection is perfect for so many different card themes. The colors are bright and cheerful. And I love the variety of different pattern designs. Of course, the pretty pink papers were my favorite. This is a shaker kit and there are enough foam/acetate pieces to make 15 shaker cards. If you've never used a Queen and Company shaker kit before, I highly recommend it. Their pre-cut foam & acetate pieces make the process so easy and they sell a variety of fun shaker toppings. This kit is definitely one of my favorite card kits I've ever used. 💖

I used my 6x6 Paper Pad Tutorial and one paper pad to make 34 cards.


Because it takes many hours to use up a 6x6 paper pad, this video has been sped up 7 times. The real time recording was around 6 hours not including any of my planning, prep, or die cutting time. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.



In addition to using the 6x6 paper pad, I also used 17 sheets of  8 1/2" x 11" and 12 sheets of  12" x 12" solid colored cardstock.
