Painted Harvest one-sheet wonder notebooks

I needed LOTS of notebooks to give to my All-Day Craftathon guests so the obvious solution was a One-Sheet Wonder... and Painted Harvest is the PERFECT set for this technique.

For those unfamiliar with the concept, you simply take a full sheet of cardstock - any size - and stamp all over it. Then you cut it up to make your projects.

My top tips for One-Sheet Wonders:

1. Always start with the biggest stamps, then work your way down to the smallest, using them to fill in any gaps.

2. Largest images usually (but not always) work best in the palest shades, working your way up to the darkest colours for your smaller images.

3. Once you’ve cut up your cardstock for your projects, don’t be afraid to go back and stamp in any gaps. It’s not cheating!

4. Don’t feel you have to follow an online “plan” for a One-Sheet Wonder... just go your own way!

I didn’t hold back on the colours, here’s my colour combo for this project...

The old-style ink pads don’t show their name on the edge; they are Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede and Pear Pizzazz
