Hello Stampin’ Friends!  Today I have some quick and simple card ideas to share with all of you. It’s called the One Sheet Wonder technique! You will learn how to make 7 cards from one 12 x 12 sheet of patterned paper!  And…the best part is you will use the entire 12 x 12 sheet of paper…no scraps!  This is one of my favorite ways to make cards especially when I need them in a hurry!

There are many different ways to cut up a 12 x 12 piece of patterned paper but this is the quickest and easiest! You can use any stamp set, any patterned papers and add any embellishments you like!  Simply grab a piece of your favorite patterned paper and watch the tutorial for all of the measurements. Enjoy!

Bokeh Technique

Today I have a video tutorial which showcases a fun little technique called Bokeh. The Japanese term Bokeh basically means an out of focus or blurred image. There are good bokeh and bad bokeh. A good Bokeh would result in blurring an image in a way that is pleasing to the eye. And of course, that’s the Bokeh that we want! If you love sponging, then this is the technique for you! All of the supplies and measurements are laid out for you in this video tutorial. So grab a pen and paper and follow along with me!

Mini Tote Bag Tutorial

014This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend a fabulous stampin’ event hosted by my upline, Lyssa Zwolanek! It was a special event she threw to celebrate “us.”  I love those kind of celebrations! She had so many goodies for all of us and, of course, some awesome stampin’ projects like this one! This project I will call the Mini Tote Bag. And it made the cutest little Easter basket for yesterday’s festivities!

012To make this adorable project, cut a 6 x 6 inch piece of designer paper. Score it at 2 1/2, 3 and 3 1/2.


Grab your paper snips and cut, the length of your scissors, on the 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 inch score lines. Fold these pieces in towards the middle and secure as shown.

Now to actually secure the sides of the tote, I recommend you watch Lyssa’s tutorial. The tutorial shows you how to make this with a 12 x 12 inch piece of designer paper. The concept is the same whether you are using a 12 x 12 or 6 x 6 inch piece of designer paper.
