It's tough to be stingy with a piece of 12x12, 15 cent paper, for sure peeps. but, I'm working through the exercise using a piece of Adorable Scorable which 1) you want to stretch to accommodate a plethora of coordinating toppers AND 2) have unique 'go-to' variations/designs (slice and dice) that can be re-used to work with other AS printed/foiled cstk and topper 'sets'. Can see a need/nice to have, several 'templates' available..... the Q is, would the template really be transferable? or wld you be sacrificing the ability to tailor to the specific theme/style of the AS?

a bit of a struggle, but like my twin, will persist.

Okay, I pressed on and I completed the project I began but...and please don't take this the wrong way because I really like the challenges that are brought to this board. A very good stretching experience. AND this one did stretch me. I do have to admit I did not enjoy making cards this way and towards the end I just wanted to get finished and really didn't do my best with the cards. I found this very tedious and quenching to my creativity. On a positive note it did give me a chance to use up a lot of the die cuts from the Emma's Garden PP.

Daria- just let me say first, thank you for playing along - even under protest! All of your cards are keepers and look good to me.
I TOTALLY understand your comments- and agree with your comment that to some degree you just wanted to finish the cards, not inspired to do your best. But you also hit on something else, which was the exercise stretched you. NOW you have these cards, so don't forget the last part of the exercise, which is to send a card (or more) to someone from the MB who you are thinking of.
Heather, Daria, Lee, Rhonda- true statement that this method impinges on freestyle creativity. The exact opposite of the point of the template, in fact. This method is for those who, for whatever reason, want to make cards in a streamlined, economical way.
No hurt feelings here. I really want to play with Lees HD template(s), because AS intimidates me so much, so that was one ulterior motive in developing this exercise! I'll be back next week with some time to play, and plan to make a batch of HD cards.

Rhonda, glad you found some 6x6 templates. There are 4 6x6 panels in every 12x12, and when you use double sided paper, imagine all the pieces and variations available to make!

Generally speaking, the "more creative" bloggers would be inclined to use 2-3 patterned papers in their OSW card making, but I was trying to be true to the ONE sheet aspect. But feel free to play away! Use this suggestion as a launching point and maybe you will find it not quite so constraining.

There are a lot of templates on Google. Type in one sheet wonder templates>images>click on the image you like>at the image click on view image>print. It may or may not print depending what site the image is from. I used one sided paper and drew the template lines with a pencil then cut. Double sided paper would work also if the pencil marks would show.
