NSD challenge "Make the Most of Your 6x6" with June - cards

  Hi, this is June Houck with your next NSD challenge
here at Pumpkin Spice.
 I set a challenge for myself, and I hope it inspires you too:  

Make the most of your 6x6 

I love collecting 6x6 pads, and even though many of my pads are well-loved and down to bare bones, I wanted to challenge my self to actually try to use an entire pad.

at Shop Pumpkin Spice for just $4.20

1.  I separated and grouped like papers together:
This pad has two of every pattern (18 patterns/36 sheets).
  • I grouped solids at the top
  • nearly solids (tone w/ white) in the middle
  • and busy patterns

2.  I chose a busy pattern, sketched a card, and tried to create as many cards as I could from the patterned paper.
  I created two of these hexagon cards.  The popped up hexagons were fussy cut from the scrap strips I cut off.

Then I chose the bold flowers paper and fussy cut these flowers from it, and a few paper strips from other papers in the pad.  I fussy cut 6 flowers total because I also made two of this card:
and from the scraps of the bold flower paper I created four cards like this one:
Hmmm...I did not succeed in using the whole 6x6; 
I still have 25 of the 36 full sheets 
plus scraps to play with, 
but I made 8 cards already from a $4.20 pad.

Challenge (and a chance to win  a $20 gift card to Shop Pumpkin Spice):
Create 2 (or more) cards from any of your 6x6 paper pads
Make the most of your 6x6!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!  June
