Team Creative Challenge

Hello, this month I decided to enter another Team Creative Challenge as I have not joined in for a while, in fact the last time was May!

This month we have been asked to be creative with Designer Series Paper to tie in with the current  'Buy 3, get one free' promotion from SU.

So, I decided to try a One Sheet Wonder or OSW!  After a search on Pinterest I found a template that I liked. 

I started with a sheet of 12 x 12 DSP (Blooms and Bliss) and got to work. The only problem was the template was in inches and I am definitely a metric girl! Anyway, what could be so difficult I asked myself?

Well I soon found out when I decided that I wanted to add a base layer of Rich Razzleberry cardstock around each piece of DSP!  How I struggled with two of the pieces, I could not get the measurements or the angles to work.  So, instead of ending up with 12 cards I only had ten when I had finished.

I used a new set called Sunshine Sayings that comes as a bundle with matching Thinlets.  Bundles from SU are always a great option as they represent a 10% saving!

I really enjoyed using this set and I deliberately limited the items I used so as to focus on how many different designs I could come up with using just one sheet of DSP.

Here are the cards I made:

I will let you know how I get on in the challenge and I hope to be able to share the template I used so that you can have a go at your own OSW- (just waiting for permission to share first.

Don't forget the current promotion on DSP ends on the 31st October!
