Using 6x6 Paper Pads For Scrapbooking by Design Team Member Amanda Sherman

Hi again.  I’m Amanda, Design Team member.  In the previous post, I explored the comparisons and perks of using the 6x6 papers that are taking the scrapbooking market by storm.

Today I’m going to wrap up this little 6x6 paper adventure with a few more examples of projects done with the same two papers in different scale.  I used two sheets of My Minds Eye Lost & Found TWO to make these five projects, three cards and two layouts.

These are the papers.

The first two projects I created were a card and a layout.  I used a 6x6 piece of paper for the card. To create this, I just cut the paper to the size of the card and added a boarder on the inside so it would stick out. Make sure to cut the top a little so it will still fit inside your envelope.

Look how easy this is?! Use the pattern of the paper to decorate the front of your card. 

“Such a Lovely Day Together” Journaling: In October, the boys went camping so we had a girl day.  We had a tea party, painted our fingernails and had fun.

 For the layout, I used the 12x12 paper in the same design. I then cut the floral paper to mat my photo using a boarder punch on the bottom of the mat.

Alright, now my next two projects are some of my favorites.

For this card, I distressed the papers and rolled the edges a bit to give it a shabby look.  I also cut the paper flowers (using both scale of papers) with my spellbinders dies and rolled and inked the edges.

The layout below I love because of the photo.  I was so happy with the result of the page and the shabby look, it went perfectly with this picture.  There is no journaling, but the title is based off a song by Steven  Curtis Chapman called “The Treasure of You.”  This is one of my favorites.


Supplies:  My Minds Eye (paper, flowers, brads, epoxy, ribbon), Misc (paper, ink & floss), Basic Grey (alphas), Cosmo Cricket (alpha ledgers)

And finally, I used the two different scales of one patterned paper to make this quilted card.

I hope this inspires you to create both cards and layouts with 6x6 paper pads! To see some new paper pads that Craft Warehouse is carrying, check out this previous post!
