Rebecca here with you today. My question to you all, how many cards do you think you can get out of one, yes only one 6 x 6 paper pad. Would you believe me if I told you 29 (TWENTY NINE!!, you have read correctly).
I love to set myself a challenge, so I challenged my inner crafter to push one 6 x 6 as far as I possibly could. I took the absolutely gorgeous Teresa Collins Santa's List 6 x 6 and starting thinking and thinking, I pulled out those Christmas stamps that I never use (because I am a lazy stamp hoarder) and got cracking. I made it to 25 cards and thought perfect, 25 days of Christmas, but there was STILL paper left!!. Four more cards were produced
In total I made 17 full size cards and 12 minis (great for putting on Christmas presents). 9 sheets of card stock were used, which created 2 full size cards and 2 minis, with leftover card stock for more minis. I intentionally made the cards fairly basic in order to create fast cards which were not going to over use paper. As you can see there are double ups and a few triple ups in the below bunch as it is much more time efficient to create a large amount of cards if you create in sets.
So now I ask, who is feeling inspired? Christmas is just around the corner it is most definitely time to get the card production going.
Many thanks for looking everyone, I wish you all a very happy and creative day.
