82 Cards from Simply Scrappin' Kit Round Up

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We certainly did. Kids were home so that made it very good.

During the weekend, my daughter and I decided to try the Simply Scrappin' Kits (pages 174-177 in the Idea Book and Catalog). We chose the Round Up set on page 176. Instead of using it for scrapbooking, we followed some very good instructions given by Stampin Amanda and Sarahtaptap on Splitcoast Stampers. These gals shared wonderful instructions for making 60 cards from the kits.

Email me if you would like me to share these with you janinpb@communitybroadband.com



Holly and I ended up using the pages left for scrapbooking to make more cards. I made 82 cards and Holly 80. What a productive weekend!!

So.....I'm sharing my creations with you.

Sometime in the new year, we plan to have a class using the Simply Scrappin' kits and make them into cards. Lots of possibilities. Most of the scrapbooking kits come with 8 - 12 x 12 sheets of textured cardstock (4 different colors and 2 of each color) and 6 - 12 x 12 pieces of coordinating designer print papers (two different designs which makes 4 different prints and three of each sheet) Plus 6 sheets of self-adhesive diecuts. Makes putting together cards and scrapbooking pages a breeze!!

Here are the 82 cards I made - let me know if you have any questions!!

Holy cow! That's cool!
I'm still trying to figure out how you got so many cards out of 8 pieces of cardstock...
Just what size are they?

Yes Tiffany - all from one kit. I used regular cardstock cut for the card base - used the instructions from the two gals on SCS to cut and then used the extra pieces they used to make up the additional 22 cards. It was challenging and I felt I really used my "creative side" (which is NOT very big) to finish it up!!

Thanks for your comments
