Simply Scrappin' - Conversion to Cards

When I signed up to become a demo this past May, part of my start-up kit contained the Petal Party Simply Scrappin Kit. Eventually I hope to get into scrapbooking, not only to market those crafters, but to also deal with the boxes of photographs I own. But someone posted a link to Patty's site which shows a Simply Scrappin kit having been broke down into cards. So, I thought I'd give it a try. It was really fun and not one card is alike. I was able to make 32 cards (I only had 8 pieces of 12 x 12 cardstock, not 9 as stated in Patty's tutorial), and I still have two 12 x 12 designer pages left and tons of stickers. The cards are 4 x 4.
Here is a shot of all the cards...

And here are shots of the cards in groups so that you can see what I did more closely.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Flight of the Butterfly, Smarty Pants, Warm Words
Ink: Old Olive, Basic Black, Pixie Pink, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Versamark
Paper: Simply Scrappin' Petal Party, Whisper White
Ribbon: Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain and Striped Grosgrain, So Saffron Striped Grosgrain, Old Olive Striped Grosgrain, and Rose Red Double Stitched Grosgrain on one card. Wrong color but I didn't have Pixie Pink.
Punches: 1-3/4 Circle, 1" Circle, 1-1/4" Circle, 3/4 Circle, 1/2 Circle, Ticket Corner, Word Window, Modern Label, Tag, Large Tag, Photo corners, Horizontal Slot, Eyelet Border, Double Rectangle, Scallop Edge, Small Oval, Large Oval, Scallop Oval, Butterfly, Keytag, 5-Petal Flower, Wide Oval
Other: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer, Brads, Dimensionals, Tape, SNAIL

With the purchase of a Simply Scrappin' kit and two ribbons (excluding punches, shipping and tax), each card literally cost $1.03 to make. If we all get together for a stamping party and pull our punches together, the cost will remain that way. I'm thinking soon.

Your cards are great!! Did you know that you can make up to 60 cards out of one simply scrappin' kit? I have had classes for it too. My customers seemed to really like this type of class. I hope it turns out great for you too.

Great cards, Kayleen! Do you have 4x4 envelopes, or do you use A2 envelopes to mail the cards in?
