Hello crafty friends! Today I have another 6x6 Paper Pad tutorial featuring Recollections. I love using 6x6 paper padsbecause it is so easy to create a bunch of cards without using many extra supplies. I wanted to use one a paper pad that could be found at a big box store, in this case Michael's, because I know that some people prefer to shop there. For today's cards I used the Cheeky Modern pop 6x6 paper padand the coordinating stickers because I felt like they would be well suited to cards for teenagers I could easily whip up a bunch of cards for card drives likeCards for Hospitalized Kids. If you want more info on donating card please check out myCard Drive Resourcespage. So today I'm using the Recollections Cheeky Modern Pop 6x6 paper padwhile making 25+ cards! To see it all in action check out the video.

I cut most papers in the collection with my Kat Scrappiness Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangles. I use those on so many projects. It adds just a bit of detail to large panels. I used the second largest one (3 3/8 by 4 5/8 inches) for the background pieces and a smallest one (1 3/4 by 3 inches) for some of the accents. Since I used the coordinating stickers there were not two cards that were exactly the same but I did make two of most cards with the except of changing out the stickers used. There were two of each double sided paper in this collection.
Hello crafty friends! Today I'm here with a card for the Spring/Summer 2018 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I love these blog hops and have been participating for many years but today I'm playing along as a Kat Scrappiness design team member and sharing the latest coffee themed products released by Kat. Kat Scrappiness is a super sponsor and will be offering two $25 gift certificates and the coffee dies as a set.
To create today's card I made the Kat Scrappiness Got Coffee die into a stamp by cutting it from fun foam twice and mounting the layers on a stamp block. I love stretching my dies to make them more useful and stamping them is a simple way to do that. I covered a background with Distress Oxide ink and then stamped the coffee sentiment all over the background in a darker brown Distress Oxide. Distress Oxide inks are perfect for these homemade foam stamps as they are a bit juicier than dye inks. I used my Distressed Edge Rectangles to cut out that panel. Then I cut the Stitched Flag Banner and Layered Coffee Cup dies from some scrap cardstock. I stamped the coffee bean and sentiment from Newton's Nook Newton Loves Coffee set for some added interest and was able to finish assembling my card. Kat has such a great mix of basic dies (at super reasonable prices) and some fun specific dies (Like that awesome cup).
Kat also has a great clearance sale going in her shop so be sure to check those out when you purchase your new coffee themed goodies.
Enjoy the hop! I'm excited to see some amazing inspiration!
