...and I am on a roll

Made 8 more cards.   This method uses no electricity whatsoever (unless you count the lights used to see, LOL).   Yes, folks, I made 8 (count them) non-Cricut cards.   Meaning I did not use the cricut at all.  I could have used the cuttlebug on this, but that is for the next set of cards I do that way.  

First of all, the method I used (but not in the manner it is suposed to be), is called the one sheet Wonder cards.   What is the One sheet wonder card method?   This method, invented by someone on Split Coast Stampers (website:, is where you take a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock, and by following a set template for cutting, can produce 8-10 cards.  You can find the real instructions and template on that site or I found it on .   Ok, so here is where I went wrong:

Although I am pleased with the results (made 8 cards), I did not use a sheet of 8 1/2 sheet of cardstock.   I used a sheet of 12 x12 patterned paper.  Even though I personally do not think it matters to what size you use, it is important that I now know that you do not have wasted paper at the end of your little project.  I did have wasted paper.   Rot Roh.   So when the instructions say a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11, use that size sheet.  the rest of it can go into my scrap paper box.   Next, I did not do the second set of instructions either, which was to take preferrably a white sheet of cardstock and three color inks with three different sizes of rubber stamps.   OK, if you are in a hurry,love a favorite paper company , do 2-page layouts, and you have one sheet left, because you bought 3 sheets, save the energy, and cut up that sheet.   Other than that, I followed the rest of the instructions, which was to make any type of card from those pieces you cut from.   So without further ado, here are the cards, they are mostly love and Thank You cards:

So this these are the cards.   Like I said, I love them, I just did not follow the exact instructions for a "green-friendly" card making time, which I do not know if that was the original intention on the original creator's part, but I will follow her instructions from now on, LOL.

Good night, and,God Bless You.  thanks for reading.
