Wednesday Inspiration - 5 in 1 Pattern

Don't you love it when you have a pattern?  And it is even better when that pattern saves on your precious card stock. Because we stampers all know that the more money you save, the more money for rubber. And around here "it's all about the rubba". If you don't believe me just look at the top of the page.

Recently in class I thought I would teach the students how I get five panels from one sheet of 8 1/2"x 11" card stock. They were all thrilled with this little tidbit of knowledge so I thought I would share with everyone.  Most of the time the panels I cut for the inside of the card measures 3 1/2"x 4 3/4". This gives you nice border all around and if you cut using my pattern you will get an extra panel with each sheet and minimal waste. Cool huh? And there is no reason you can't use this size for the front of the card too. Works for me!

Right click the pattern and save it to your hard drive. Print it out if you need to, just remember to follow the numbered steps. Don't you wish all of life could be so simple!  Happy stampin' everyone.
