  1. Agree! Cats are magical!!!!! What beautiful cards! I just love the patchwork design — reminds me of “folk art”, which I really like — and what you’ve done with these images is stunning! Thank you for sharing what can be done with one of these paper pads. Your tips are great for beginners and card makers of all levels! I’ve got my eye on this paper pad to stash away for next year’s cards, and I really like the new Lady Vagabond Lifestyle collection, but I’m waiting to see if you use it. As always, thank you, Vicky.

  2. Wow!! These are wonderful cards. Right after I saw your art journal page using these papers, I ordered the 8 x 8 pack. I plan to use it for 5 x 7 cards for Christmas. I so love your tutorials. Thank you for sharing your talents with us!

  3. You never cease to amaze me! You see and do things that I never even would have thought of. If I ever received a card that looked like any one of these, I would frame it and keep it forever! Absolutely gorgeous cards!

  4. Vicky and stamperia Christmas pad. I feel like I just received a Christmas present. I know this will be a video I watch and rewatch. You are so amazing! Thank you very very much.

  5. Absolute gorgeous cards Vicky!
    I will definitely look with other eyes through my paper pads, I normally see them only as background papers.
    Thank you so much for sharing, stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Beautiful cards. I’ve been challenging myself to make 20+ cards from 6 x6 pads for a couple yrs. after watching Kristie Marcotte’s videos. An inexpensive way to make stunning cards w/ just a few supplies from my stash. And so many of the pads now include ephemera pages, too.

  7. Love these cards, Vicky.
    I always struggle with using paper pads, but you make it look so easy as well as fun.
