I'm Back!!!!

Well, round one of giving this blogging lark a go unfortunately fell by the wayside. I lost access to my computer for nearly 6 months! Eeeek! When I did get it back up and running the pregnancy was really taking it's toll and I was next to useless by the time I got in from work.

Anyhow I'm now 37 weeks pregnant - can't wait for my new arrival and I have decided to get this blog properly up and running thanks to some prompting from friends and customers. I have built up a stash of things to share with you over the coming weeks and can't wait to see what you think.

I hope that the projects I post inspire you and as classes become available please let me know if you are interested. Feel free to CASE anything you like - I very often do myself :-) If you do please mention me on your blog if you have one and comment on here too.

Here is todays offering - a stamp set that I adore is Flight of the Butterfly and whilst blog hopping I found this project on Amanda's Blog I love how the colours look together! I've used Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Summer Sun.

The ten cards are based on a 'One Sheet Wonder' design that I found over at
Splitcoast Stampers I'm sorry it was a long time ago though and I can't remember whose design it was originally but it is so easy to do! The OSW for the 10 cards is based on an American 8.5" x 11" sheet of plain cardstock. for this version I adapted it to A4 but am in the process of re doing it for a class to be offered so it will use a 12 x 12 OSW.

For those of you that don't know what a One Sheet Wonder is I'll try and explain. You take a piece of card stock say 12 x 12 and then cut it up in such a way that you can use the pieces along with a few extras to make a set of co-ordinating cards in this case I've made 10 but it can be more or less depending on how you cut up your patterned paper. Alternatively you can design your own patterned paper like I have here. This is a picture of the base OSW, all you need to add is then card stock for bases and embellishmnets. This time I have left sentiments off but once I have decided on a use for the set I can add them.

I also made a box to store the 10 cards in - what a great present idea!

Bye for now! I'll be back with more soon.

You are very welcome Amanda! This project has proved so popular! I've been asked to make it in a variety of designs as gifts, will definitely keep me busy!
