21 Cards with Doodlebug 6x6 Paper Pad Puppy Love


Dog Themed Card by Jess Gerstner featuring Doodlebug Puppy Love

Hello crafty friends! Today I have another 6x6 Paper Pad tutorial featuring Doodlebug. I am obsessed with Doodlebug 6x6 pads because it is so easy to create a bunch of cards without using many extra supplies. I think their designs are adorable and I can easily whip up a bunch of cards for card drives like Cards for Hospitalized Kids. So today I'm using Doodlebug Puppy Love 6x6 pad and Cardstock Stickers while making 21 cards! Once I had made the 21 cards there was very little left over and I really felt like I got the most out of my pad. To see it all in action check out the video.


I made 2 of most designs but there are some unique cards. Keep scrolling to see pictures of each design. Please leave a comment here or on YouTube if you'd like to see more of these. I have a pile of 6x6 pads I can share if people are interested in more videos and posts like this one.
