More Than Tripling the Cards from the Saying Thanks Kit

I love challenging myself to come up with ways to double or triple the contents of Stampin’ Up! kits. Today I’m sharing how I re-designed the Saying Thanks kit from the Kits Collection which debuted about a month ago. When I started creating, I first just doubled the cards. But because I cut into the envelopes, I then had extra envelope flaps and made 3 more cards. After tripling the cards, I challenged myself to make one more. So I turned 3 cards into 10. And with this kit doing that with the 2 other sets, you can turn 9 cards into 30…more than tripling the cards from the kit!

I just showed live on YouTube and on Facebook about an hour ago step-by-step directions for creating these cards by adding a few sheets of Basic Black cardstock, a pack of envelopes (to make up for the ones that we are using for more card designs and layers), Tuxedo Black ink, sentiments from the Happy Labels Stamp Set, and a little more coordinating product. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel or tune into my events on my Facebook Page so you can get updates when I share and go live).

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

During the Silver Elite Retreat this past weekend, we each put together a sampling of these cards. (Sorry for the lighting. Photographing at the cabin was challenging me a bit.) You can see that even if you want to make the cards as intended, you can still add a little variation here or there.
