Simple One Sheet Wonder Halloween Cards

 


One sheet wonders are just that, wonderful!! Take a sheet of pattern paper, cut it up, and make multiple cards with it. It can also be intimidating when you use a 12 x 12 sheet of paper. So 6 x 6 it is!! I took a piece of Parakeet Party DSP and cut it up to make these 3 cards. Here's what I did:

Cut 6 x 6 at 4 inches. Take the 4 x 6" piece and cut in half to make two 4 x 3" pieces. Cut the 6 x 2" piece into four 2 x 1-1/2" pieces. Watch my video below to see what all was done and the products used to create these fun cards.

Sending Good Thoughts Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

Here are the alternative cards I created using pieces and parts from the July 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit. I love nautical themed cards so this kit was right up my alley!! I only had one problem, the color combo of Fresh Freesia and Poppy Parade. So I wanted to keep the colors from the kit but not put those 2 colors together!! Haha! Watch my video below to see how I created these cards.
