Ok so this week I challenged Susan to create a OSW. She was like?? Im like One Sheet Wonder. Basically you can take either a 12×12 piece of Designer series paper or a sheet of 8.5×11 cardstock and stamp a design on it. Then you cut the paper so you’re able to get xx amount of cards or cards and a box out of the one sheet of designer series paper. So head over to Susan’s blog: http://www.susan-stampinsue.blogspot.ca  to see what she created. I actually was working on this project for another group and just finished it, so now I’m sharing it. I used a tutorial from Chiaka Harverstick at www.stampingpro.com I did change up the stamp set and designer series paper that she used (as they are retired) The nice thing is about her tutorial is there was a cutting guide at the bottom of the page to follow as well.
