Giving up!

I've had this Basic Grey Olivia paper pad on my craft table for months. I had challenged myself to use it all up- you can see the original post HERE- but today I decided that it's sitting there and I've not had the desire to actually finish it so I'm putting it away. It only has a few sheets left in it so I came close to finishing it and I got 14 cards out of it so overall, I'm pleased.

Here's the final photo of all the cards I finished out of it. Maybe I'll tackle another pad another time.



Have a great day!!

They look cute. I have bits and pieces of 6 x 6" pads that I should do this with. I'm not sure I could sit down in one sitting and make this many cards. You did good!

A fabulous idea Danni and you did a great job. I sometimes wish pads were smaller (and half the price) as I rarely can finish up a pad. Kudos to you!

The cards look great, and I'm highly impressed that you used the pad as much as you did. Great work. For the pages you haven't used, see if they go with papers from another pad. Perhaps with a little mixing and matching, you may be more inspired to use the paper that is left. It adds "new life" to some of those papers if you look for something else to match it with.

It is such a good idea though to try and use up an entire pad - how else can we make room for more! :D I love all the cards you made with it, and 14 cards is nothing to balk at. I think you totally reached the goal, even if there are a few sheets left. You go girl!

These are all gorgeous cards, Danni! I have often set out to do exactly the same thing (use up a 6x6 pad). My basket of 6x6 pads is overflowing...50% past capacity ;)

Yet after I complete a card or two I want to change to a different collection. Kudos to you for creating so many pretty cards and *nearly* using up your BG pad!

Awesome job, Danni! Don't worry about not finishing the paper pad. Your cards are all so adorable. Maybe in a few months you'll be inspired to use it again. Or, you can always give the scraps to Belle. :)

Well it looks like you did an awesome job with that pad already! I find it so hard to get to the end of one pad, its a great idea to challenge yourslef... I might even try that too :) Jen xxx
