Another One Sheet Wonder example....

First, let me tell you what I did in under 1.5 hours yesterday!! I'm so proud of myself. I put our little one's crib together all by myself!! I'm pretty handy, but there were some parts of the assembly that made me almost think I would HAVE to wait until Peter came home and that just made me more determined to get it done on my own! :) My husband is out of town from yesterday through today and then he leaves again Friday through Sunday, so I just couldn't wait until Monday to have it put together - plus, how could someone like me not put a silly crib together???? I get to go to San Antonio to do some shopping (can we say Michael's, Costco (that cool new Magnolia/Wild Asparagus 12 x 12 pad better be there!!!!!), JoAnn's (I'm "probably" going to make the baby's crib bedding) and Target - here I come!!!! Since I'm hoping to do the baby's bedding when I get back, I'll want the crib ready to use. I'll post a pic of the crib when it's all made up, whether I end up buying or making the bedding. We'll see.... Oh, and I THINK we've settled on a name for the baby, but I won't tell here until we decide for sure. :)

Well, here's the 2nd card (I'm only going to show you 5, not all 16 - don't worry!!) :

Stamp Sets: Doodle That, Friend to Friend
Card Stock: So Saffron, Ballet Blue, Whisper White, Sarah DS Paper
Ink: Ballet Blue classic ink, So Saffron and Certainly Celery markers
Accessories: Piercing tool and guide, White Signo gel pen, White grosgrain

This is the first card that I made with the one sheet wonder template that demonstrators could download off of the SU! demonstrator website that the template piece didn't fit for. In the picture of the example cards they provided, that piece of Sarah DS paper was supposed to stretch across the ENTIRE card. As we all know, a standard A-2 card is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" but this piece (I promise this is the dimension on the template!!!!) was supposed to be 5 1/4" long. Anyone that can do even a little math will notice that that's 1/4" short of stretching across the full card. Yesterday's card wasn't the first I made, but that little strip of DS paper was only supposed to be as long as the piece of CS layered directly above it, but the dimensions on the template had it an inch longer. AHHHH - we're supposed to be able to give these templates to our customers, but they aren't correct!!! Oh well, I'll have to tell them to scratch out certain numbers and replace them with others. At least MOST of the work has been done for me :) Enjoy!
