Love You More…

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday!  Yesterday I didn’t get a post up, but I was creative the whole day…it’s just stuff I can’t show you yet!  That’s the worst for me, because I like to share all my creative stuff with you guys!

Anyway…today I have a sneak peek from the PBD release.

I am sneaking the stamp set “Life with you is…”

For this card I used the NEW DCWV 6×6 Birthday Wishes Stack.  These 6×6 stacks are perfect for card makers!  And the colors in here are so fun & bright!  DSC_0092

To make the sunburst at the bottom of the card, I cut a section of scrap paper as big as the space that I wanted to cover. Then I drew the sunburst onto the scrap paper.  Cut apart the pieces and used them as a template to cut my patterned paper.  Sounds complicated, but it gets easier…and it is definitely easier than trying to figure out some mathematic equation 😉

I added some ribbon from American Crafts, and the sentiment–and that was it. Easy Peasy and pretty!

Also, while I was in my craft room playing with my new 6×6- I decided to find a new storage space for them.  This Thirty One rectangle came in handy–and fit all of my 6×6 stacks.  DSC_0095

And, it left me these 3 baskets to store more PBD stamps in!! YAY!!DSC_0096

 

How do you store your 6×6 stacks?  Or do you stick to 12×12?

  • I still haven’t tried a sunburst card yet, but I absolutely LOVE how it looks! It looks like a great way to use scraps.

    I still only have 12×12 paper (not even much cardstock) to use for layering. I know that if I buy nice cardstock, I will be afraid to cut into it! I have always eyed 6×6 though especially the birthday stacks because of their bright colors and present/candle/cake prints.

  • Love the card…and great tip on the Sunburst! I’m going to have to do this! Can’t wait for the release! And now when I get home tonight, I’m going to have to use a rectangle like this for my 6X6’s! Great idea!

  • I have both 6×6 and 12×12 (and some 8×8) My 12×12 papers/cardstock are stored in the clear stand up trolley (from Sterilite?) I have yet to find a good place for my 6×6 and 8×8….but like this idea. Thanks.

  • Adorable card. Great idea on a template! I want that mini stack 🙂

    I store my 6×6 pads in a metal basket will need another one soon 😀

    Can’t wait for the release and the new stamp of the month!

  • Hi Sarah!!! Hope you are feeling good!! My ‘nephew’ must be getting big in there!! LOL…I store my 6X6’s anywhere! I actually had a video store go out of biz a couple years ago. The end cap shelving they had were $20 a piece and huge! 4 clear shelves in all. I bought 3. Anyways..they stand up on the shelves, and then I had put some of already made cards in it..but…cat hair/dog hair got to ’em and well…have to tear them apart..recycling! And throw the rest out!! I lvoe 6X6’s as I only do cards!! Great idea with like a ‘template’ on copy paper…then I wouldnt waste…mess up paper!! Thanks Sarah!! xo

  • I store my 6 x 6 with my 8 1/2 x 11 paper. I can get to them easy that way. Where do you get this cute 6 x 6 stack??? LOVE your card with it! Thanks for sharing 🙂 Kathi

  • I need something for my 6×6 – they are just in a pile and it is sad! they are so pretty they should all be on the wall but I don’t think that is very practical! I love 6×6 and pretty much buy just those now – so thanks for the inspiration to get them organized!
    Have a great day!

  • Love my 12×12″ paper. I also hate looking through stacks and stacks so storing is always a problem. Love your birthday card and can’t wait to pick up that stack!
