Secret Garden Simply Scrappin' Kit 80 Cards

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We did, with lots of family and much much too much to eat!! But it was fun and relaxing.

My goal this year was to make cards for the girls in my family. I made 80 cards from the Secret Garden Simply Scrappin' Kit. The kits come with 8 sheets of textured cardstock, six sheets of double sided designer print paper and 6 sheets of adhesive die cuts all to match.

For these kits, you need the actual Simply Scrappin' Kit and 40 pieces of cardstock for the card bases. I used the matching card stock colors of Groovy Guava, Old Olive, Always Artichoke and River Rock. The original instructions say to make up sets of 4 cards alike, but since I like my cards different, I change each card as I go to make it a little different, but use the same layout. Since I do add a few things I would say the cost would include about 4 extra sheets of cardstock to add layering.

If you are interested in a class, I will make up instructions to fit that class. This is a wonderful way to make up cards to last a long time at a very reasonable cost. I estimated the cost of the kit and the cardstock (including shipping) and extra embellishments (ribbon, brads, etc.) to be under 50 cents per card.

Here are the 80 cards I made from the Secret Garden Simply Scrapping Kit
