Hello, Karen C here again. Recently I have been sharing with you the scrapbook layouts I've created using the Coffee and Friends collection from Echo Park. After creating three layouts with my DT kit I was left with a few random sized scraps of patterned paper and some of the die cut Ephemera Frames and Tags.
None of the scraps were bigger than about 6" square so rather than try and make another scrapbook layout I decided to challenge myself to make as many cards from the scraps as I could. On YouTube I follow American cardmaker Kristie Marcotte. Kristie has a series of videos where she takes a 6x6 paper pad and turns the entire paper pad (plus cardstock and minimal embelishments) into a set of cards. I love Kristie's style which uses a lot of black cardstock and took inspiration for my cards from her. By coincidence, Kristie has recently used the 6x6 Coffee & Friends paper pad to make cards. Unlike Kristie I didn't have a full 6x6 paper pad so didn't have as many papers or patterns to choose from but double sided papers help.
