One Sheet Wonder-ful!

Good Morning Peeps!

Happy Thursday!  It's definitely a happy day here because Mike's coming home from travel.  WOOT!
We have missed him SO much this week.  I'm counting down til time to head to the airport.

I had a great group of stampers here last night for the "One Sheet Wonder" class.  We had a blast.  It's so much fun getting together to stamp, laugh and just chat.  The ladies gave this class two thumbs WAY up.  The loved getting SO much from one sheet of DSP and they were excited to have six "clean and simple" cards to make that will be easy to recreate at home.  I really love the tote that we made to put them all in.  It makes a terrific gift for all sorts of occasions.  

Now...if you've never heard of the One Sheet Wonder idea before, it's simply a way to cut one sheet of Designer Series Paper into assorted sizes to be used on a bunch of projects.  Now, I could have spent tons of time measuring and drawing out a brand new design but I decided not to reinvent the wheel.  There are tons of OSW sketches out there on the internet on Pinterest, on paper crafting blogs and when all else fails...Google it!  
Here's a link to the one that I chose to use.  I only used the measurements for cutting and then took the pieces and made my own card designs with them.  One Sheet Wonder Template

Okay....Now here's how we used all of our pieces..... 
Be sure to read all the way to the end of this post for info on the fabulous DSP we used.



Here's the tote that all of the cards fit in...

Aren't they fun?  The girls kept saying how they LOVED making "clean and simple" cards that will be quick to make when they need one in a jiffy.  I'm telling you...I've been looking at my DSP with brand new eyes.  I can't wait to create more.

Speaking of DSP...Here's the collection we used.  It's from the Occasions Catalog on page 23 and it's called "Watercolor Wonder" (Item #132994).  I love all of the designs.  It's one of those collections where you have a hard time "hiding" one of the pretty sides of the paper.  LOL
Here's a little snipet for you...


 If you haven't seen all of the DSP collections available, you just have to check them out.  They are beautiful and they are all double sided which makes them even MORE magical. :-)
Go to my Online Store by just CLICKING HERE  to see them now.
I'd LOVE to see what YOU come up with.  Please send photos of your creations to me.  That would rock my socks!

Here are a couple of the stampers from last night's class with their completed projects.  What FUN!!

Cathy loved the "blue" version...
