How to make a ton of cards from a pack of DSP

Bella Birds designer paper goes a looooooong way!


I was going through all of my stamping things that are going to retire and I had about 25 stamp sets and about 8 packs of our designer series papers. I figured since I had a couple of days with nothing big planned, I would see how many cards I could make from one pack. So, I started with the Bella Birds paper since I LOVE this one. (I am really going to miss the pink pirouette.) So, I cut a stack of whisper white in half, then I took a few sheets of pink pirouette, chocolate chip, and so saffron and cut them all at 5 1/4 by 4. THen I took the whole pack of Bella Birds DSP and cut those at 5 x 2. Then I grabbed some ribbons, our Oval All set and some scraps and a couple of ink pads.  So, I started assembling, and assembling and assembling…..for 2 straight days! I finally just stopped because I was getting tired of making them, but I did get 67 cards made with several pieces left over. I figured out that you can make 84 of these cards from one pack of designer series paper…..any one will do. Just mix and match. You get 14 pieces  (or 7 cards) from each piece of paper. Cut it at 5, then 5 again and you will have a 2 inch strip left over to get the extra 2 pieces from. So, here is what I came up with……


I just threw them all on the floor to take the picture!











Here is a close up view!











And here are several of the samples. I will post more each day. I think I had about 12 or so different ones.
