March Blog Challenge - 2008

Here is the challenge for March... I know I'm a few days late but I'm still doing better then last month.

The challenge for this round is to make a card or scrapbook page using the One Sheet Wonder (OSW) technique. Basically you create your own designer paper by stamping a variety of images in a variety of colors. You can use as many or as few images and colors as you but once you're sheet is stamped to you liking, you then get to cut it up to make several cards. The number of cards you can make using a OSW depends on how big the piece of stamped paper is and how big of pieces you cut them into. I've seen people take 1 sheet of 12x12 paper and come up with as many as 10-20 cards. For my card I only got 4-6 cards from a sheet because I used a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper and I didn't have the exact measurements figured out when I started cutting. I know bad me. I could have used the scraps to make a card with a different layout then the one attached her but this was the card I wanted to make so I didn't use the scraps. The reason for the lack of measurements before hand was because I was casing the card and didn't follow the original design exactly. Sorry I can't recall at this time who it was I cased it from. They did a wonderful job and though I changed a few things I didn't change much.

Challenge Requirements... Please email me your designs no later then 9pm on March 31st. All those who submit cards that use the OSW technique will have their names put into a paint can and a winner will be drawn at random. I will announce the winner the first week in April. The winner of the challenge will win a set of cards designed by me using the OSW technique. Please put Faye's Blog Challenge in the subject line so I don't miss it by mistake in my mail box.
