9 card tutorial

Hi Friends!! kel here today :) We just celebrated Mother's Day here in the States, so I wanted to share this super fun floral card set with you because the colors and patterns made me think of mom-ish cards!!  Note that I didn't actually make "mom" cards because we're past the holiday lol!!

I used the Shimelle True Stories 6x6 paper pad and wanted to make sure to try to use up all that I can from it!!  I'm totally inspired by Kristie's 6x6 pad mentality, where she tries to use up the ENTIRE pad in an extended crafting session... I am not quite to using the entire pad yet but I think I did pretty well with these 4 sheets, ending up with 9 super fun cards!!  I also used (5) 8.5"x11" sheets to make these cards but did have a whole bunch of scrap leftover.

The tutorial is at the end of the post... it's my first ever Youtube video/video tutorial, so be kind! I'd appreciate any suggestions to improve!!  And I really had fun making it so please give me your suggestions so I get better from now on!



The first three I made were congratulations cards using these squares:




I also made two cards with my leftover scraps! Those skinny strips were definitely worth saving!!


The last 4 cards are sitting blank on my desk because I haven't decided what sentiment I want to go on them yet!  But I am so happy with how this set came out and think I might definitely want to have a go at this again!!!


Here's the video, I hope you enjoy it!! (and help me come up with a better title next time lol!)
