Introduction to a Patterned Paper Challenge


I am desperate to use up some of my patterned paper. I have so much but it but I never seem to get through it. Therefore, I am challenging myself to make a card each day for the next 14 days. I am going to use as much patterned paper as I can. I anticipate I will be using many of my card sketch pins from YouTube more than likely. Whatever, it takes I want to get through as much paper as possible. Are ya with me? You don't have to can just watch. I hope it inspires you though in some way to get making some cards or working your own "challenge".

Simple Birthday Card with Rub-ons


I was stoked when I found this birthday rub-on collage at the Dollar Tree. I knew this would make a great card. Now the first card is super simple. On this card, I added a few Dollar Tree flat sparkle stickers as well. They filled in the card nicely. This is so simple anyone can do it. Beginner card makers you need to add this one to your arsenal when you need a quick birthday card. The card at the bottom of this post is stepped up a bit. It is so cute as well. I got a short simple video about this on my YouTube channel. Check that out here.

Washi Frame Card-Halloween

 I know...more washi! But these cards are so fast. They are totally fun as well. This is another card that is great for beginner card makers. The card only needs a few items to make it, totally budget-friendly as well.

I have a quick video over on YouTube putting this together. Head on over here.

Another Washi Tape Halloween Card

 I broke the washi out again to make a cute little design for my next Halloween card. I cheated a bit on this one...I didn't have any DollarTree stickers or anything to add. I tried my own writing but as usual, wasn't loving that so I added a few die-cut ghosts and bats. That just made the card. Hope you enjoy. I have a short video over on YouTube you can find here if you want to check it out.

Elegant Pearl Background

 Dollar Tree to the rescue once again. Since I am so anti-measure.
🙄 I'd rather just eyeball things. I could never get my pearls or rhinestones to line up perfectly in rows to create a background. Well, the lines of half-back pearls that dollar tree sells are connected. Making this process much easier. Use any die-cut to create your shape and fill in with these beauties. I love how this card turned out so elegant. To see me make this card you can see it over on my YouTube channel found here.

Here is another card I made recently using this same technique.

Bootiful Mummy Card


It only takes a few supplies to make this mummy card. The biggest expense for the beginner cardmaker is the ink pad. Don't forget to use that coupon at the big box store when you pick up the ink to keep expenses low. This was simple yet fun to make. Now, who is going to get this bootiful card this Halloween season...hmm not sure yet?

I have a quick little tutorial over on my YouTube channel. You can view that here.

Inspiration from Everywhere: Cricut Design Space Card


To see this card come together head on over to my YouTube channel here.  It is a very short video I put together after watching one of my favorites over there on TikTok @thatnursemissy. The visual was so vivid while I watched her video. I knew I had to make her a card with plenty of lemon images. With images from Cricut Design Space and some digital stamps from Lemon Elf Studio. Can't wait till she sees my TikTok and she gets this card.
