12 Cards | Michaels Recollections Memory Explosion Box 6 x 6 Paper Pad and Ephemera


Today I’m sharing 12 cards I made using the Recollections Memory Explosion Box Collection. This collection is sold at Michaels craft stores. It caught my eye because of all of the pretty pastel colors and foil throughout the paper pad. There were so many pieces to this collection, but I purchased the 6 x 6 foil paper, chipboard frame stickers, birthday die cuts, and washi tape. With these items, I made 12 birthday cards and used up all of the ephemera. Some of the cards can be used for congratulations cards as well. With the chipboard frames, I made some shaker cards. All supplies are listed below.

26 Christmas Cards with Recollections Say Freeze 6 x 6 Paper Pad

26 Christmas Cards | Michaels Recollections “Say Freeze” 6 x 6 Paper Pad & Stickers

Today I’m sharing 26 cards I made using Recollections “Say Freeze” 6 x 6 paper pad, sticker pack, traditional Christmas die cut stickers, and matching solid cardstock.

26 Christmas Cards with Recollections Say Freeze 6 x 6 Paper Pad

I love pattern paper pads and I love to make Christmas cards. I saw this collection at Michaels craft store and ended up purchasing it on Black Friday for under $8. I wanted to see what I could do with this collection and ended up making 26 cards, 5 of which are duplicates. For some of the cards, I was inspired by a card sketch and other designs I came up with on my own.

This is such a great way to make a bunch of quick cards. I was going for a very simple look using only a few supplies. I mainly used only the paper and stickers in the collection, however, there are a few cards where I brought in some circle dies and scalloped circle dies to use on the cards. I also brought in a few pieces of green solid cardstock from my stash.

I have a video on my YouTube channel showing my design process of all of the cards. I also listed each card below along with measurements.
