Featured Products

For these cards, I dove into the beautiful Bayfair 6 x 6 Designer Paper Pad from Spellbinders. The patterns are vibrant and versatile, making them a joy to work with. To add some focal images and embellishments, I used the Bayfair Cardstock Die-cut Ephemera pieces, also from Spellbinders. These little accents are perfect for adding that extra special touch to your cards. For sentiments, I turned to the Fresh Picked Sentiment Dies, which are fantastic for creating crisp, professional-looking words. And let's not forget the mat layers and sentiments, for which I used the Pinks Smooth Cardstock, Florals Smooth Cardstock, and Cools Smooth Cardstock pads from Scrapbook.com. These cardstocks are a dream to work with, providing a smooth, sturdy base for all your creations.

Pro Tip: Embracing the Sketches

One of my favorite things about using card sketches is the way they take the guesswork out of design. When I first started, I often found myself staring at a blank card base, unsure of where to begin. Sketches changed all that. They provide a clear layout, making it easy to see where each element should go. Plus, they leave plenty of room for your personal touch. So don't be afraid to experiment with different patterns and embellishments. The sketches are your starting point, but your creativity will bring them to life!

I hope you're as excited as I am to dive into these card designs! Each one offers a unique look, yet they all share the same summery vibe that’s perfect for sending a bit of sunshine to friends and family. Be sure to check out the video tutorial included in this post, where I walk you through each design step-by-step. Below each card, you’ll find all the sizes for pattern paper, card sizes, and mat layers, making it super easy to follow along. Happy crafting, everyone, and remember to share your creations with us! I can’t wait to see what you make.
