Valentine One Sheet Wonder

We spent the last few days shoveling from the 32" the snowstorm left on its way going North.  I have not seen that much snow in many years and don't want to see it again!!  In our back yard, there are drifts of at least 5'.  Fortunately, the weather is turning warmer this week, so hopefully most of it will melt before we get some more.  The girls are excited as they haven't had school yet, so no one had to get up early.

One good thing was that we didn't lose our power, so Joe had his cable and we watched Denver win!!!  Yeah!!  We were so happy for Peyton Manning!  In between watching TV, I was working on making this adorable project.  Did you ever make something out of "One Sheet Wonder"?  I have seen them on the blogs and was intrigued but never made any.  Then on Chic n'Scratch I saw her video using the Bloomin' Love Stamp Set and decided to try it out.  The idea is that with one sheet of DSP you can make several cards/gift boxes.  In this case, she made 7 cards and one small gift box.  I had been wanting to make some cards for Valentine's Day and thought what a great way to start.

I had the stamp set but not the paper she used, so I went through my stash of DSP and came up with the same design DSP but in red with some glitter on it which was perfect - I even had the red glimmer paper.  You can watch her( video here), as well as print out her cutting instructions.  I'm sure I'll be using these instructions for future cards.  Here are the finished products.



Here is a close of one of the cards.



Here is a picture of the gift box.  It is a perfect size for a special gift or treat.



Well, I' working on some more Valentine Treats while hiding the candy from the kids!!  Hope everyone survived the storm as well as we did.  Have a great week!

I've submitted this project to Cardz TV Card Challenge #1 - Valentine Day Card.

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

  2. Oh, my, so you were in the middle of all that snow! Watched it on the news. We hardly ever get snow here. Amazing that you didn't lose power. It's a good time to craft and you sure did craft! Super cute project with all those cards and the darling little gift box. I've seen the one sheet wonder projects but never did one. Great way to use up the paper!

  5. I've been a follower of Angie's blog for a long time and I absolutely love her creations. She's done a few of the One Sheet Wonders. Actually, her blog says she is working on one that should be ready on Monday. I must say, you did a fabulous job. :)
