We Create Blog Hop - Pattern Play

Welcome to the JULY 2021 "Pattern Play" Blog Hop!!! We generally hop on the first day of every month, and this month the focus of our projects will be anything to do with patterned paper - since we are have a Designer Series Paper (DSP) SALE this month! I chose to feature the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper, along with the Color & Contour Stamp Set.

In Stampin' Up!'s private demonstrator Facebook group, the company shared a fun way to use 6 sheets of 6"x6" Designer Series Paper to get 14 different cards! It's called the Pick 6 Wonder (similar to what you may have heard called a One Sheet Wonder), and today I am going to share this quick and easy template with you. To prep your Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper, you'll take one each of the 6 double-sided 12x12 sheets, and cut out a 6" square out of each sheet. Then you'll use the Pick 6 Wonder instructions to make 14 standard-sized cards from 6 sheets of 6"x6" DSP. If you cut the whole package into 6" squares, you could make 56 total cards using these designs!

I have shared the PDF instructions for these cards below, which includes the cutting patterns, a list of supplies you may want to have handy, and a sample picture of the 14 card layouts (using the You're a Peach 12x12 Designer Series Paper). Where the instructions mention to cut out some hearts from the DSP, you can use whatever shapes you want. I'm also going to hand-trim the pieces I use for the sentiments from Basic White Cardstock. If you'd like to use punches or dies, feel free, but I am going to keep the supplies to a minimum for this post. I'm hoping I to do a quick video for you on a FB Live, showing you how to put all these cards together, but I'm just not sure yet when I might be able to do that so I won't make any promises right now.

This pattern works great with ANY Designer Series Paper, and you can pick the coordinating cardstock colors directly from the coordinating colors listed online next to each Designer Series Paper in My Online Store. Or, you could just choose one neutral card base color, such as Crumb Cake Cardstock. Just be aware that only *select* patterns of Designer Series Paper are on SALE this month. If you just want a quick chart, they are all listed in the graphic below. And under that you can click on the PDF DSP SALE Flyer to see all the different patterns in color.
