108 Cards from one pack of Designer paper?

I learned something new this weekend at my Stampin’ Up Groups Spring Event and I had to share it with you!  The simplest layout that can create so many cute cards, and first I’ll show you the instructions and templates, then I’ll show you the cards you can make with it.

“Jodee’s Signature Layout”

With 1 package of Designer Paper you can create up to 108 cards

Using this simple format…

  • Cut cardstock for 4 1/4″ Square cards (cut 8 1/2 x 4 1/4) = 2 cards (per sheet)
  • Cut 4×4 squares from designer paper (12×12) = 9 squares (per sheet)
  • Use 2 1/2″ Squares (from cardstock template) to create the background
  • Cut an additional 2 1/4″ Square to create your canvas
  • Accent with elements and you are on your way!
Cardstock Template - 2 cards and 3 backgrounds

Cardstock Template - 2 cards and 3 backgrounds

Here are the cards you could make with this simple layout… as you can see you’d need 1 or 2 colors of cardstock to coordinate with your designer paper. Then just Stamp, embellish as you want to and you’re done! They’re square cards that fit in standard greeting card envelopes (the square ones cost more in postage anyway!) Enjoy!! I’m excited to use this layout!  Click on the images to see a bigger version, and hit the back button on your browser to come back to this page 🙂

And Many Mower…

I made this card for my uncle’s birthday, he owns a mower repair shop so this was perfect for him!  This is from a new set called And Many Mower that will be available April 1 in the new Occasions mini catalog, how’s that for a sneak peek??  This is another set that is GREAT for the guys in my family.  Also has a golfer which is perfect for some of my guy friends!
