35 Cards/1 Doodlebug 6x6 pad

 My friend, Evelyn, of Cut It Up blog fame, invited me to play along in a just-for-fun challenge...choose an unused 6x6 and use it up!  The photo above shows the cover(left) and the scraps that are leftover (right).

I created 35 cards from 24 sheets using Doodlebug Design’s “down on the farm” 6x6 and Doodlepops 3D stickers.  (Still available at

I also used many Queen & Company Foundation dies and Q&Co card sketches for inspiration, pictured below.

Thank you for stopping by!

Doodlebug So Much Pun

Now getting down to the final scraps...

Out of the 24 sheets, I only had the 3 sheets of dictionary paper left.  I filed it with my other texty scrapbook paper and called it complete!

Use your stash!  June


My Mind’s Eye Love Me


The Covid quarantine has enabled me to work in my craft room in chunks of time.  My focus has been find use up.  Stickers, washi tape, paper, ribbon, etal.

I started with a 6x6 pad by My Mind’s Eye “Love Me”.  I had used it to some extent (use search bar in the right column to find previous creations.). I also had some Hero Arts pre-folded and scored card bases in blue.  One of the cards was torn in one corner, so I used it for layers in some of the cards above.

Success!  I finished all of the blue card bases and the Love Me 6x6.

I hope this inspires you to use your stash,  June

Doodlebug Sweetheart collection

 I am primarily a card maker because I like the (relative) instant gratification compared to scrapbooking.  This Doodkebug Sweetheart collection was 12x12.  I thought it unlikely that I would use this particular collection as a scrapbook layout, so I cut it all into 6x6.  I made over 40 cards, 37 pictured here.  The majority of the dies used are by Queen & Company.

I hope this inspired you to use your old stash!
