Card of the Week: The One Pad Challenge Week Seven

It is week seven of the one pad challenge and I am still going strong.

I still love the paper that I am using - Indie Bloom by Basic Grey.

And I am still having fun combining the different papers together to make lovely cards and tags.

Here is what I came up with this week:

I have always loved grid style cards.  They are simple, clean and classic.  I am very happy with how mine turned out...it makes me "smile".
Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Basic Grey; Cardstock: Bazzill; Rub-On: American Crafts; Buttons: my craft stash; Ink: Ranger Inks; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, Glue Dots

This "thinking of you" card opens first to the left and then to the right....a little different than most cards but something I like to do every now and then for a little variety.

Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Basic Grey; Cardstock: Bazzill; Flower: Prima; Rub-On: American Crafts; Button: my craft stash; Ink: Ranger Inks; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, Glue Dots

I also made a few tags this week to help use some of the smaller scraps of paper that I have leftover.

Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Basic Grey; Journal Tag: My Mind's Eye; Ribbon: my craft stash; Ink: Ranger Inks; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives

So to answer the question....

How many cards can a card maker make from one pad of patterned paper?

This weeks' creations bring the total to 18 cards and 5 tags.

With more to come next week...see you then.
