Sneak Peak of Hello Lovely 1 Sheet Wonder 20 Card Workshop

Hello everyone, with my first 1 Sheet Wonder workshop being successful, I got right to work designing a 2nd workshop using Hello Lovely.  So once again, I only used 1 sheet of pattern paper to create this workshop.

This workshop is almost complete, just working on the files.  Stay tuned towards the end of week.






Like the previous workshop, you will get to create 20 cards total, there are 5 designs, with 4 of each design. I am offering 3 class dates for this workshop, April 7th from 6pm-10pm, April 8th from 1pm-5pm, and April 9th from 1pm-5pm.

If you are a consultant, there will be an option to buy the files to offer to your own customers, or you can join my team and have FREE access to my files

Thin Cuts Blog Hop

Welcome to our Thin Cuts Blog Hop!  


Did you know that not only do we have stand alone Thin Cuts, but we have Thin Cuts that are coordinated and bundled with matching Stamp Sets? There are 4 bundles that are geared to coordinate with our paper collections, as well as for bundles that are matched up with Stamps from the annual catalog.  The stand alone Thin Cuts are great for layouts and cards alike.

If you have come here from Wendy's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog



This month we have approximately 18 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using these Thin Cuts and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!


For this card I used the stand alone Thin Cut "Happy Birthday" Z3340 as well as the small inner piece from the "Hearts" Thin Cut Z3260.  I pulled the colors Seaglass and Sorbet from the Hello Lovely for the cuts. Added the Zip Strip from the pattern paper and added so Gold Gems to finish.


I have 3 children, and 2 of them have birthdays in April, actually on the same day....they will be 13 and 8.  OMG, I will officially have a teenager.  Anyway, I thought I would get a head start on making some treat bags.  So I pulled out the Sweetest Birthday Stamp Set and matching Thin Cuts, CC1220, to decorate the treat bag.

My card was really easy to make and I will be using this card in a card class that I have coming up. I used Hello Lovely Paper collection, including the zip strip pattern. I choose to use A1192 Happy Heart(French) for my card. I stamped the sentiment in Black, and the hearts are in Seaglass and Sorbet, both colors appear in the paper collection. To dress the card up I used 3 Gold Gems.

This first card is made using the zipstrip from Sugar Rush and a 3x4 pocket card, I added some of the glitter gems from the collection to finish it off.  The teacups were coloured with the ShinHan Markers.


This second card was created by my 12 year old daughter.  She used a 4x6 pocket card which we trimmed down to 4x5.25 and she added some silver glitter gems from the Sugar Rush collection and finished her card by doodling around the exterior edge of the pocket card. The teacup is coloured with the watercolor pencils using multiple layers.

Debuting my Sugar Rush 1 Sheet Wonder Workshop

So I've been contemplating this for quite some time now, and finally sat down and decided to bite the bullet and jump to it.

My workshop is based on being able to teach my customers how to create the maximum amount of cards from a single sheet of 12 x 12 pattern paper.

My workshop will create 20 cards with 5 different designs.  For my first workshop I used the first pattern from the Sugar Rush collection.  These cards are all a birthday theme and the reason I did a theme here is the paper just screams birthday, and with 3 kids, there is always a birthday party for them to attend.



Now lets take a look at each one of the cards.

Card 1

Card 2

Card 3


Card 4

Card 4 was inspired by a creation I seen by Vicki Wizniuk, with a twist and my own added touches, it is a completely new design.

Card 5


Members of my Atlantic Scrappers Team will have full access to my files, you can join my team here!

Thank you for choosing my workshop files.
