Hello crafty friend! Today’s post and video is part of Spellbinders 20th Birthday Celebration! I’m so honored to be a part of this celebration and hope you enjoy all the amazing inspiration that will be shared today. Designers will be creating with the new Birthday Celebration Collection. I used the Cheerful Occasions paper pad and the Balloon Party Animal for today’s card.
I will share a Paper Busting template to help you make a set of quick and easy cards with no scraps. You will cut up a sheet of 6×6 patterned paper to make cards without creating any scraps. This is similar to a One Sheet Wonder which often makes a few different cards and is usuall done with 12×12 patterned paper, but my templates show how to make several of the same cards from one sheet of 6×6 paper. You can use 12×12 paper as well, but you will need to trim them down to 6×6 first. (To the best of my knowledge, the One Sheet Wonder is a concept Stampin’ Up demonstrators have been using for years, so credit to them for the name and inspiration).
Paper Busting Template #39 makes 2 of the exact same card. You will use cardstock to mat the patterned paper pieces which will create some cardstock scraps. Make ‘fake foam tape,’ cut sentiment dies, or create mats for your next card with these scraps. The template directs you how to cut your paper and the card sketch will show you how to assemble the cards. Of course, feel free to mix it up to your own liking.
