“The Cheat Sheets Lyssa creates make it so easy for anyone to design amazing cards. She provides the creativity and you use the supplies you already have in ways maybe you didn’t think of. They are worth every penny, and maybe a few more!” R.S.

"Love how quickly it arrives in my inbox! Lots of wonderful ideas to try with complete, detailed instructions! This is so wonderful, thank you." B.M.

I LOVE reading happy comments from Cheat Sheet users! Several years ago I decided to create a resource I wished existed: layout helpers that were not specific to certain stamp sets, papers or dies. I used my background in graphic design to create one-sheet instructional pages with not only a "sketch" but complete measurements, full instructions, and alternate layouts. I incorporated design hints on each sheet that would help stampers become better at designing their own layouts, choosing color combinations, mixing patterns and working with visual weight.

"The fact that Lyssa has a graphic designer background gives her a very different viewpoint from those of us who don’t have that talent.  The cards always have a wow factor and yet are often easy to replicate.  Whenever I’ve made and given a card using these basic ideas, the recipient has always commented about it." L.F.

To my utter delight, the initial feedback on the first few collections was so positive I knew I would be making more. My goal was one set a month (that didn't happen!) but there are now 24 collections to choose from. Newer sets now include easy fancy folds, my own original designs as well as classics you don't want to forget. The library is still growing… this September I'll begin Cheat Sheets #25!
