8 x 8 Pad Disappearance Challenge

on June 6, 2015

Inspired by Kristie at her blog The Best Things in Life are Pink, I tried to make a paper pad “disappear” by using it all up by making cards.  The paper pad I chose, however, was not the typical 6 x 6, but rather, a slightly larger 8 x 8 pad.

The pad I used was Graphic 45’s “By the Sea” pad.  Graphic 45’s 12 x 12 papers are very challenging to use for cards due to the size of their images, but they did a good job of providing larger and much smaller prints in this pack.


Many thanks to Kristie for showing which sketches she used.  I followed her examples for many of the cards!   There were a few more cards than this, but I have been using one here or there for occasions.  The rest will go to Operation Write Home.  OWH is closing down and they stop taking cards on Aug 1, so these will go in my last box to them.

I’m featuring a Missing You card to enter into the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge on the Operation Write Home blog today.

    That is so cool that you were able to use a whole pad up and so sad that OWH is closing. I do get it in this age of technology though. Anyhow. thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon this week.
