Tips for you: What would you do with these papers?


What would you do with these papers?  I mean the large images in a 12x12 designer series paper.  You may have these ones once you bought a pack of designer series papers.  I like to share what I did and how I made my cards out of them. 

Depends on the image, of course, you will decide which direction to cut. 

First I cut them sized 5 1/2"x12" and into the following sizes: 
(2) of 5 1/2"x4 1/4" (this will cover your card base completely), and
(1) of 5 1/2"x 3 1/2"(which is the rest of cut) as shown in photos below.

Here is another designer series paper. (Note: For this paper, I cut (3) of 5 1/2"x4 1/4".)

Here is one more.

And these are my cards that I made out of the first designer series paper.  I just added a sentiment and a butterly. What do you think? 

I am entering this week's OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge - make masculine themed cards.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Well done Seongsook! I have done this in the past with some papers obviously intended for scrapbook pages and have also found with a little forethought you can make some very nice, and relatively simple to make cards. Your photos are a great demonstration of the concept!

  2. I have some papers with huge images and sometimes have a terrible time figuring out how to use them. Thanks for these ideas!

  3. I love that...I have some of these kinds of papers they are beautiful but I never could figure out how to use them...thank you so much for the tip!!! You always have the best ideas and I love the way you explain and use visuals...I learn better by seeing then by just reading.

  4. Thank you, Paula, Elsie and Debbie for encouraging comments for me.

  5. great idea!
    my scrapbook is 8.5 x 11 so even when I get these papers I can't always use them for scrapping

  6. Very smart and very clever! I would never think of things like this! Thank you for showing us some very useful and helpful information :) BTW your cards are beautiful!

  7. I have several packs of 12x12 papers that have single images on them and often wondered how to incorporate them into cards since I don't scrap book. Thanks for the ideas and now I can use them! Your cards a beautiful. TFS

  8. You are a marvel, my Dear. I accidentally came across your blog looking at the One Sheet Wonder. I think it may have been whilst I was pinning away on Pinterest. Then one thing lead to another and I found so many excellent ideas that I am creating Boards for myself with your fabulous ideas. Thanks again for sharing with us out in Card Making Land.

  9. I have so many of these papers throughout my large packs. I usually flip through them and admire "how pretty" they are. Thanks you for sharing this brilliant idea! I feel free to cut them up now!!!!


I hope you enjoy visiting my blog. Please leave your parting thoughts.
