6x6 paper pad projects

For about a year now Anna Griffin has been selling beautiful 6x6 paper pads.  They are so handy for cardmaking because you don't have to cut into a full 12x12 sheet of paper for a little card, or to punch small shapes.  Last month Anna sold some 6x6 pads to match her new collections.  Here are some cards I made with them:



Lest you think I'm partial to cards, I also love making scrapbook pages with 6x6 pads.  There are so many ways you can use those smaller papers on a larger canvas.  Take a look:


So, believe it or not, every bit of patterned paper on the above layout is from a 6x6 paper pad.  I started with a 12x12 piece of cardstock and placed four identical blue papers in a quadrant for the background.  The pink border is actually several punched tab shapes lined up and stitched.  I cut apart a striped 6x6 paper to use as a mat for my photo, and I punched a tag for my journaling.  To embellish the page I cut out some doily images from one of the papers.


For this layout I divided the background in half, and then cut some large butterflies with my Cuttlebug and placed them in a quadrant.  I also used my Cuttlebug to create some handmade flower embellishments.

I hope these projects inspire your 6x6 paper pad crafting.  Happy scrapping!
