PALS Hop & A One Sheet Wonder

Welcome to the July PALS HOP!  This month, we're featuring Stampin' Up!'s New Catalog & In Colors 2010-11!  If you've hopped over from Nina Dee’s, deesignsbyninadee, I'm stop number 7 on the PALS HOP and I'm glad you stopped in!  I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find inspirational ideas for papercrafted creations from the Stampin' Pretty Pals!  Should you get off course, simply click on any of the links in the PALS HOP LINE-UP below and you'll be back on track!

Instead of the two or three cards that I usually create for a blog hop, I decided to go all out and created 10 cards for this one! Though there are 10 cards here, it was easy peasy to create them all using a One Sheet Wonder template.


A One Sheet Wonder is when a single sheet of Designer Series Paper or a stamped background of your own is used to create a series of projects using just that one sheet as the main focal paper. In this instance I used an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of Whisper White that was custom stamped with Circle Circus in three different colors.

Returning In-Colors Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red join up with So Saffron for this fun and colorful combination. This combination came directly from the Riding Hood Red card in the new Color Coach. When a fourth color was needed for some card bases, I returned to the Color Coach and found Cherry Cobbler to be a dynamic duo with Riding Hood Red and it fit perfectly into my palette.




This is a fabulous project to use for a class or Stamp Camp. I used it this past weekend in a Stamp Camp with my customers and we were able to make all 10 cards in only 2 hours or so. I used a very convenient template that I received from Leeann Greff which you can find here.

I know that I will definitely be doing more of these One Sheet Wonders in the future. They are wonderful for stocking up on basic cards to keep in my stash and send out when needed. I hope you have enjoyed them.
