Probably my biggest addiction, even more than collecting actual stamps, is designer paper. PAPER!!! I love it!! But I find that I don’t use it because then it would be gone. D’oh. So I have begun to quarter my 12″X12″ sheets. This way I have FOUR… YES FOUR pieces of paper. I can let my little hoarding self use one or two of these pieces and still have some left!! Woohoo!! Well it works for me. LOL!!

So that is where I started today, with a quartered piece of 12″X12″ designer paper.  To make sure that there was absolutely no waste of my precious paper, I created another 6″X6″ One Sheet Wonder (OSW) template.  I just love making these.  They also work, of course, for all of the 6″X6″ pads of designer paper available now.  And I created a sketch (which I almost followed!  lol) that can be used with the pieces from the OSW that will make into four cards.  Here’s the template for the OSW.

I needed a couple of masculine birthday cards and a couple of wedding cards.  Since this was a double sided patterned paper, it worked out perfectly with the stripes on one side and the blue toile like floral on the other!  Plus my 10 Designer Centers & Borders from JustRite had everything I needed for sentiments all in one set!

Here is the sketch.

If you decide to give this OSW/Sketch design a try, please let me know.  It would be so much fun to see what you have created!
