None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Recovering a One Sheet Wonder Project

“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life  which are the real ones after all.” ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

I am sharing some cards I made It started out to be a 12 x 12 one sheet wonder, but somewhere along the way I made some wrong cuts and so I just went with it and started creating cards at whim using Pinterest for inspiration and whatever happen to be at hand!

Supplies use include but are not limited to:
  • Cardstock from The Paper Studio (card bases), Stampin Up!
  • Design Paper from Authentique
  • Dies: Kites from Sizzix, Happy Birthday from Sizzix, Dottie Trim from CC Desings, Hello from Every Elle, Butterfly from Stampin Up!, small scallop border due from A-muse Studios
  • Embossing folder: Decorative Dots from Stampin Up!, Dots and Lines from The Paper Studio
  • Ink from Palette
  • Other: Adhesive and Dimensional Foam
  • Sentiment stamps: Ms Sparkles & Co Cardmaking Stamps
  • Stash: Rhinestones, Sequins, Pearls, homemade card candy, enamel dots

Thanks for stopping by!
