44 Cards With ONE Scrapbook Kit

One of my most favorite things to do (and the easiest ways for me to get out of a creative rut) is to make cards using a scrapbooking kit.  The Dear Lizzy Serendipity 12 x 12 Collection kit has it all: floral, geometrics, tone on tone...it's so versatile!

Here's my process to make a stack of cards from one scrapbook kit:

I start with the cut apart cards.  I design cards based on the focal point and set aside the parts I won't use (make sure you keep those parts--they are often double sided and can be used in some other way!)

Next, I pick my favorite papers.  The floral background is stunning!  I normally enjoy fussing cutting images, but this paper was difficult to cut apart.  So I did the next best thing.  I cut it into strips.

For the hello card, I cut 3/4 inch strips and popped them up with foam adhesive.  The Happy Birthday card uses 1/2 inch strips glued directly to a panel.

Adding a sentiment diecut from Rose Gold Bazzill Mirror Foil Board really adds a touch of elegance. 
Lastly, I go through my stash of stamps, diecuts and svgs to see what I have that might match the papers.  The triangles made me think of sprinkles (hence, the cupcakes) and I knew I had a camera stamp that would match the camera paper.  The marble paper screamed "globe" to me.  The globe design is a design I always go back to, since it is such a classic design.

Any sheets leftover become everyday cards with simple sentiments (like hello or smile cards).

I made 44 cards with this kit and still had 1 1/2 sheets plus left to make extra cards! If you want to use up a scrapbook kit, a stack of cards is the way to do it!

  • Hi all! Once we announce a promo, we cannot go back and retroactively apply the promo to past orders. But the good news is that once the promo started, we added the freebie even if you did not add it to your cart.

    Unfortunately there just has to be hard starting point and if we ship promo materials after the fact in their own box it just gets too expensive for us to be able to run promos. Thanks for understanding!
