Each April/May you will see Stampin' Up! demonstrators all over the world get excited about new product coming out in our June annual catalog and sad about things "retiring" from the old catalog. For me, it's always bittersweet, as I love new play things but I hate to let go of some... I also have an intense need to put the old things to use before I bring new ones in-- therefore this month's post is dedicated to the "One Sheet Wonder."
One Sheet Wonders are opportunities to take our coveted and beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP) and cut it up! GASP! I know. It looks really pretty in the package displayed on the walls of my craft room-- but guess what, equally nice paper is on the horizon. I have finally gotten a handle on DSP and understand better how much to order and how to use it so that I don't feel guilty about it sitting around. I am proud to say that I have NO unopened packages of DSP and a few are almost gone!
So, the goal is to take one piece of paper and make a bunch of cards with it. This past weekend, on Easter actually, a very dear family friend was having her birthday. I was in charge of the bunny cake and other desserts... I also felt that I could make Nellie a really sweet gift of cards (she comes to my classes and my mother-in-law's classes)! Plus, I wanted to take on the challenge of designing a One Sheet Wonder. At the bottom of this post I have a link for you to view how to cut the sheets of paper and the sizes of the pieces!
But, without further ado... all 7 cards!
Hopefully, you found this post useful as we think about our paper hoarding issues! If you haven't already, consider following me on Facebook or Pinterest! And make sure to COMMENT below-- you could win a special prize from me! I will take a prized piece of DSP and cut it up-- just for you!
And now, on with the blog hop! You hopefully came here from Kirsteen Gill and are headed to Twila Davis's blog!
