One Sketch Two Ways - Using 6x6 or 8x8 paper pads



Small paper pads, either 6" square or 8" square, are really popular. They are fairly inexpensive ways to get all the great patterns from one collection.  I did this sketch as a way to use my October Afternoon paper pads on a 12x12 layout.  Typically I love to place elements edge to edge.  In this case I used circles rather than my traditional paper strips.  In the second layout, I cut squares and arranged in this argyle pattern.  


The first video goes through the first layout step-by-step and briefly addresses how to flip the sketch for the second layout.  It also shows how to use Creative Memories cutters though you could use any circle cutters.

The second video is the stitched argyle pattern.

Here is a link to the tutorial on creating your own shimmer paint similar to what I used on the letters by Rosanne (roxycar11):

Hope you will grab a mini paper pad or some scraps and join me for an easy layout.  If you would like to leave your blog address in the comments, I'd love to see what you have created.

Thanks for watching!

(Ingredients for both layouts are listed at the end of the first video.)

  5. Great idea using paper pads. I have a bunch of Stampin Up 6 x 6 pads and I forget to use them a lot. I really like your layouts also!

  7. Great little tutorial! I love the smaller paper pads and use them mostly for scrapping, since I don't make that many cards. Love the reduced size of the patterns.
