This week's tutorial at OWH was how to use a 6x6 pad and use it all up. Yes, yes, count me among the crafters that have a nice sized stack of pads in a drawer! For the record, I no longer buy 12x12 pads. I've transferred my addiction to the smaller pads (progress, maybe?). I try to use them up but the truth is I go back and forth between different pads so it's hard to do.
I decided to use up this MME all spice pad because a) it's fairly masculine colors/patterns - yesterday's challenge was to make masculine cards - and b) it's one of my least favorites. Sad but true! The designs are nice but they don't speak to me like some other collections. They still made really nice masculine AND feminine cards, though, I think.
First I pulled out ALL of the papers so I could flip them around and see which patterns looked good together. Then I started looking at the sketches (this is a treasure trove, people! Go download it!)
I started out with sketch 68.

That was fun!! :) I still have a pile of smaller scraps to use up. I'll get to those later tonight.
We got to go to meet my daughter's new 1st grade teacher last night. She is really kind and caring, and I think we are going to have a great year! My daughter is excited because they get small lockers, not cubbies or hooks, for their stuff. Nothing says 'big kid' like a locker. :)
Thanks for visiting me today!
