Card for Slimline from 12x12 One Sheet Wonder Template #1 by Jess Crafts

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing how to use up 12x12 patterned papers to make slimline cards without creating any patterned paper scraps. 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.

5x7 Card Template #1 Using 6x6 Paper featuring Heffy Doodle and MFT

 

Card for 5x7 One Sheet Wonder Template #1 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 one 5x7 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.

Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash Challenge: Birthday

 


When I saw the latest Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash challenge was a birthday theme I decided to play along because I can always use a birthday card. I paired the elephant from Cheerful Pals with sentiments from This Says It All. When I started pulling out the supplies I decided to make a few extra, but I switched to a more general theme since that is what I donate most.  There's still  several weeks left so be sure to check out the challenge!
