New Patterned Papers from Waffle Flower Crafts!

Cathy ZielskeCards97 Comments

I’ve got a few fun and simple card projects to share today featuring brand new patterned papers from Waffle Flower Crafts.

Everyday Paper for Cardmaking is a brand new series of patterned paper designed by and for card makers!

My cards both feature the charming new papers designed by JJ Bolton, JJ’s Rainbows.

Waffle Flower paper pads measure a generous 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches (half-page of US Letter size). They settled on this size to give cardmakers more paper and less waste! Simply fold each page in half to make a standard landscape A2 card. Or trim a page in half to make two A2-sized card fronts. This larger size can also be used for A7-sized cards (5″x7″). The beauty of our unique page sizing allows us to have half-half designs.

This paper is also fantastic for scrapbooking and if you’re an 8.5 x 11 scrapbooker like me, the paper will stretch across the width of your layout. Bonus!

Here is my video showing you how I created my clean and simple card projects:

    Love the ideas for colorful cards. I really like the circles die over the colored stripes. So many ways to use a simple white cover with lots of color underneath!

    I’m loving the cards made with the Waffle Flower papers. The papers are so fresh, colourful and bold. The sizing is ingenious. I’m itching to get my hand on these papers. TY

    Thanks for the inspiration. Yesterday there was a call in the paper to create (or give) cards to a local organization to distribute to seniors trapped at home or in their rooms during this pandemic. I have LOTS of patterned paper, and I know now I can create a stack much more quickly.

    Love the papers. Something I haven’t tried. I have been patiently waiting for the Waffle Flowers Love die that I ordered 6 weeks ago. Would be great to try with these papers. Thanks for all the great videos.

    What fun and colorful cards! I love the large sentiment you added to the diagonal striped card, and the big dots die looks great over the vertical stripes. Waffle Flower’s new paper pads look awesome. 🙂

    Had to giggle. That pattern paper does mess with my eyes… but in a good way. The colored circles offset in the white circles added so much movement. And Yay for the T-square. Really love these cards. Thanks and please stay well!

    I love the new papers and how you used them for your card. Now that I’ve watched a whopping ONE of your 10-minute design videos I’m noticing things like repetition and common margins. Thanks!
