My Mind's Eye 6x6

Kristie shared a tutorial on OWH Stars and Stamps recently in which she explained her strategy of using an entire 6x6 pad of paper to make cards before moving on to a new paper line.  I thought this was a cool concept, though I wondered if I would be tired of the papers before I finished the pad of paper.

On Saturday, I got a new 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye called "A Happy Heart."  For $2 on clearance, I was ready to see how many cards I would make from one pad.  I didn't have the desire to sit and make 20-30 cards in one sitting, so I stopped halfway through the paper pack.  With 12 sheets of patterned paper used (and at least that many sheets of solid cardstock), I produced 14 cards.  I took my cue from the title and made love cards for the most part.  




Most of these cards come from OWH Sketches.  The others were just designs in my brain!
