Just One Sheet

How many cards can you make with just one sheet of patterned paper?
Well, here's my try on my personal challenge to use some of my stash! (again, for the umpteenth time, but that's besides the point... LOL)
For the layouts of the cards I used the first sketch of the new dutch blog "Don't Waste Your Thursdays" or, as we like to call it, the DWYTter blog. It's about using up your scraps while making stamped cards and participating in the sketch challenge at the same time. For now, I still like it and think it's fun. Don't know how long I will keep this up though! They're already on sketch 3 and I'm still stuck on the first! LOL
We'll see.
But, here are my cards with the pattern paper. Using just one sheet. Enjoy. :-))

The sketch was for a square card, but those cost double in postage to mail here in Belgium, so I adapted the sketch to regular sized cards.

Hey, my sheet of patterned paper took me through 4 cards!! Four! Wow, I love this! I may do this more often.
***edit 21 Oct.: actually this one sheet took me through 6 cards and an ATC, but the "others" didn't make the grade to be put on the blog.... Still happy with the results though!***

I did make another square card following sketch number 1, but using another patterned paper.

Stamps used are all from Stampin' Up!
Let me know what you think, okay? I'm always interested to hear your opinions! :-))

I didn't know you made cards too. I never throw any of my paper away. I always seem to find a use for even a little scrap of paper in my cards. Yours are so beautiful!

Congrats on the new followers list! I just joined you. You did a beautiful job on your 1-sheet card series...gorgeous. But I have to comment on the beautiful blue bracelet (if I recall it was blue waves?) is stunning! Hugs, Gayle.

Wow! These are amazing, Wezz. I need to give this a try because I have so much patterned paper that isn't being used.

And, golly boy--I didn't know you had my blog site on your blog links. Thank you.
Please send me your link privately and I'll list it on mine, too.
