6x6 One Sheet Wonder Template #19 featuring Lawn Fawn

Card for One Sheet Wonder Template #19 by Jess Crafts

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing how to use up 6x6 patterned papers without creating any scraps. This method is similar to the idea of a One Sheet Wonder and I will refer to them in that way since it makes sense to many crafters. To the best of my knowledge, the One Sheet Wonder is a concept Stampin' Up demonstrators have been using for years and so credit to them for the name and inspiration of the idea. Today I am sharing how to cut up a 6x6 piece of paper that will result in 2 of the exact same card. I am using cardstock to mat the patterned paper pieces which will create some cardstock scraps. In this blog post, you can find a template for how to cut your paper as well as a sketch to show what should be done with those cuts. Of course feel free to mix it up to your own liking.

Using 6x6 Ones Sheet Wonders with 12x12 Paper

 


Hello crafty friends! Today's post is just a bit different. I sometimes get requests for more ideas for using 12x12 paper. I am happy to share those ideas as they come, but one of the reasons I love to share 6x6 One Sheet Wonders is because they can be used with 12x12 paper as well. So today I have picked 4 of my 6x6 One Sheet Wonders and used them with a 12x12 single sided paper to make a set of 8 cards.

Sew Your Own ScanNCut Cover with Free Pattern

 

ScanNCut Cover by Jess Crafts Free Pattern

A few years ago, I was trying to figure out to get a cover for my ScanNCut. Many sewists cover their machines when not in use to keep out dust and sunlight and I wanted to do the same for my ScanNCut. So after limited success at finding anything, particularly in a price range that suited me, I decided to make my own. I had sewn a sewing machine cover and figured the design would be much the same. I decided to make a little pattern and instructions so that you can make one as well. I also have a little video explaining the process.

ScanNCut Cover by Jess Crafts Free Pattern

My ScanNCut is an older CM350 and you may need to adjust the pattern to fit different models. If you have the same machine as me I've done all the measuring for you. If you have a different machine I will try to explain my process so you can adapt it for your machine:

Basically I traced around the side of my machine to make the side panels and used a tape measure to figure out the length and width for the two other pieces. You will need one piece to cover the back. You can determine this size by measuring the length and height of the machine. To determine the front piece you will need to measure from the back highest point on the machine around the curve of the front to the bottom of the machine. You will need to add extra around the sides for seam allowance and hemming.

I also created this card with the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash challenge in mind. This month's theme is Spring/Easter but my Reverse Confetti stamp stash didn't fit the theme very well so I opted for a spring color palette as my interpretation.

12x12 Template #2 featuring Echo Park

 


Hello crafty friends! Today's post/video are much requested and I hope will be well received. I have been asked for ideas for using 12x12 paper for awhile and I recently picked up an Echo Park Warehouse Box that had a lot of 12x12 paper to share. Today I will show you how to use 3 pieces of 12x12 paper to make 12 cards with NO patterned paper scraps!

I know a lot of 12x12 paper collections some with 3x4 cut aparts so I designed my template and sketches with that in mind. However if you are trying to use 12x12 paper without these sized cut aparts, you can simply cut a sheet to 3x4 or use 3x4 journaling cards. The template will give you the cuts to make 12 cards and a 12x12 paper will yield 12 cut aparts so no scraps. I will share the template and sketches in the post, but you can also download a printable PDF that has the template and sketches.
