A One Sheet Wonder (OSW) is when a single piece of designer paper (dp) is used for several cards/projects with no or very very little waste left over.  After playing in Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge a couple of weeks ago using a 3″ x 4″ piece of dp, I decided to divide the entire 12″ x 12″ double sided sheet of dp into 3″ x 4″ pieces.  That gave enough pieces to create as many as 12 cards all with a healthy helping of precious patterned goodness!

3 sketches were created all using a 3″ x 4″ sized piece of dp.  Today’s Color Challenge at Splitcoast was to use a blue, a lighter blue and a light green on a card or project.  One side of this particular dp already had the two blues.  By sponging Certainly Celery around the edges, punching a couple of light green butterflies and adding some light green ribbon, the color challenge was met.

I love designer paper SO much. So when using it, I like to challenge myself to create as little waste as possible.  Planning ahead really helps.  Hope maybe these sketches can help you, too, to use every inch of paper for something beautiful.

Happy Crafting!
