Since there's been a lot of talk about the 6x6 paper pads lately, I got to wondering how many scrappers have used up entire pad (or several)?

I have accumulated quite a nice collection and have even used them here & there. But I am no where close to finishing off any one pad.

Of course, I've never used up an entire full-size paper pad, either. But that doesn't stop me from purchasing all the paper goodness that keeps being released.

I have used up the entire pad of AC Shoreline. I made 2 minis with that line. I think I may have about 3-4 sheets of that pad left. I am about to have used up the AC Amy Tangerine pad doing the same thing. The minis are made to just have a 4x6 photo adhered to the back. So each page is using a page from the pad with a bit leftover as accent. Then I have diecut pinked circles using several sheets that have been leftover.

I'm relatively new to scrapbooking (beginning of 2012), and I use my 6x6 pads a ton! I haven't used one up entirely, but I am really close to using up the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan one.

Hahaha. Never mind. I just checked and I still have 13 pages of it that are completely untouched and a whole bunch of half/quarter pages. I feel like I've used it a ton thought! I've probably used about the same amount of MME Miss Caroline, Crate Paper Story Teller. I've used them all almost primarily on Project Life though.

I used an entire Echo Park 6x6 with Shimelle's Perfect Collection class. I got 16 6x6 pages done in less than 2 hours! It was fun and quite liberating to use an entire pad.

I've used two complete pads. I used them for two different albums I did. I also used the 12x12 papers that matched too

People finish using paper pads? This concept is just theoretical for me.

Yes! I can use a whole pad very quickly when I make paper wreaths. The 6x6 size is perfect and a pad lets me easily make 2 paper wreaths.

LOL! That's why I was curious. I get excited when I finish off a pack of embellies. I can't imagine how over-the-moon excited I'll be if I ever finish off a paper pad (of any size).

Cristal,

Thanks for that link. I need to make up some pet sympathy cards for some friends. I just haven't been motivated. There are some beautiful cards there, and I have that Carta Bella pad, too. Love that line!

I can honestly say that the only thing I've ever completely finished is a roll of washi tape - black with white polka dots (K&Co Smash). I rarely even finish a single sheet of paper.

Yes! I made a mini album using one and I used it all up. I've never used a 12X12 one up though

Yep, but only one I was making a mini album for a friend, who got two kittens and BG Max and Whiskers was just perfect for that job

I have only used up one entire 6x6 pad. It was an older BG line that was on the masculine side,so I made cards of all sorts (because I never seem to have any for men) until it was all gone. I love my 6x6 pads and sometimes just sit and leaf through them...crazy ,I know!!!

I have 2 mme ones that had about 4-6 sheets in them. I just took them apart the other day. I stuck the papers together (from the same Lime Twist collection) but that's the most I've ever used out of one.
