6x6 Paper Pads

I love how so many manufacturers offer a 6x6 version of their paper. The 6x6 paper pads are perfect for cards and other smallish projects, like tags. There is nothing better than flipping through a 6x6 pad just looking for those patterns to call out to you...make a card out of MEEEEEEE!!!! True story, that's what happened to me the other night. My My Mind's Eye Honey Cake paper was calling my name. And I answered.


I just started grabbing patterns and layering them like my life depended on it. Add shapes I cut on my Cricut, some lace, a button, baker's twine, and a Papertrey Ink stamp...and I had myself a card.


I think my favorite is this pretty button with the baker's twine. Yeah for baker's twine!!


When is the last time you had patterned paper calling your name? Or does that only happen to me???

Thanks for stopping by today, friends!

gorgeous card. Love the color combinations. I love the twine on your card. I think it takes a good eye to combine pattern papers. This is something I am not too good at. You rock though!
