Drowning in DSP?

Are you buried in a pile of Designer Series Paper? Are you admiring those luscious 12 x 12" patterns but hesitant to cut them up?  Well I found a solution. Actually - I found someone else's solution. Shannon West from Stampin' Up! has designed a template that she shared with demonstrators that creates 11 cards using two 6" x 12" sheets of DSP. I chose the Magnolia DSP (because I bought so much of it) & used a tutorial created by Julie Davison to make 11 cards to send to friends. For many of them I used the Covid-19 sentiment PDF.


Here is the template with thanks to Shannon & Julie.


Choose your double sided paper so that all four sides coordinate pleasingly. Using, the template cut both 1/2 sheets at once using your trimmer. You will get 5 cards from each 1/2 sheet Plus a bonus card made from the pieces marked "extra pieces".

I kept my pieces in piles adding the strips to each card mixing & matching patterns as I made each card. You will need 11 card bases so just select cardstock to match or stick with Whisper White. After all the DSP strips were attached as shown, I stamped sentiments on Whisper White cardstock then punched them out using the Everyday Label punch. The sentiments from the Covid-19 PDF can be trimmed & added to each card . Embellish with ribbon, twine & rhinestones as desired.

Here are Julie's instructions.

I hope that you are all staying safe & sane during this difficult time. 

Please note that all of my in-person classes are cancelled until further notice. The correction does not appear on my website!

Stay tuned for more "virtual" classes.

Cheers,
Arlene
