Each month one of our artists will share three different cards that use the current layout. Each card is a "step up" from the previous one, but they are all fabulous. It is a good way to show how SheetLoad is geared toward papercrafters of all levels.
Here are some sneak peeks to whet your appetite...
Super quick post today. I'm up to my eyeballs in Christmas parties and volunteering but I wanted to remind you of the contest at Creatively Yours. You can find all the details here. You also get a free digi stamp, so check it out.
Ok off to continue with the holiday rush! Have a super Monday.
TGIF!! It's "tree" day at our house. The Christmas season has arrived here.
Today I have my Humble Pie Challenge. It's a fun one. You need to head over to Kim's blog and pick a card and "lift" it. She has so many cards that are gorgeous it was hard to choose, but I chose the one from this post. I really liked the idea of this house card. I thought it was super cute. Here is my take:
Well that's it for today, a quick post. Have a great weekend!
Head on over to the SheetLoad of Cards blog today to download your FREE copy of the December '09 issue!
This issue features a sketch by Alicia Ekermans and digital stamps from Doodle Palace. There are tons of lovely samples from the SheetLoad Artists, as well as the sponsor's design team. It is the biggest issue ever!!
Savvy'n'Sassy is having a "Scrappy Special" every day for the next little while. And who doesn't love a sale. There is also a "ribbon a day" special. Go and check it out. Today is Basic Grey. So stock up. Rhea will also hold your box for you if you want to shop all the specials, just make a comment in the order.
And later today the preorder will be up for the new Basic Grey collections, Origins and Sugar Rush. You can find them here.
Good morning. I hope your weekend is treating you well.
Today I have a layout I did for Creatively Yours. I was lucky enough to be the guest sketch designer there this month. So this is my sketch below. Head over to the site to see all the beautiful creations.
TGIF!! Can you believe it's the last Friday in November? I'm really not sure where this month has gone. I felt like the holiday season has just crept up on me.
Today I have my Humble Pie card. This weeks challenge was to do a monochromatic card. Well I decided to go non-traditional and do a brown Christmas card. I was unsure how it would turn out but I'm really happy with the results.
I used Maggie with the string of lights, My Mind's Eye paper, Copic markers and spica pens, Stickles, Prima flowers, Kaiser pearls, Savvy'n'Sassy ribbon, Making Memories tiny letters
Well that's it for the week. I hope you have a great weekend and if you are in Canada, enjoy the big football game!
Good morning! It was a busy weekend here. I got to go to the Bloomin Inn this weekend and we had a great time. I made Christmas cards all weekend. I decided on 3 designs and then just mass produced them. I got 41 done. Not bad! So here are a couple I did. I used my new Magnolia stamps that I got from Little Stamp Shoppe. I had resisted getting Magnolias because I didn't need another stamp addiction, LOL. But when I saw these Christmas stamps, I fell in love. I knew I want them for my cards this year. So this is what I came up with:
Materials: Magnolia stamps, My Minds Eye paper, Copic markers, Stickles, Fiskars border punch, Stampin' UP stamp
This time it's my turn to do the Simple, Special, Stunning feature at SheetLoad of Cards. Here is the idea, you take the sketch from the November issue of SheetLoad and you make 3 cards. One is simple:
All I did was follow the sketch to the letter and added very little.
The next is stepped up a notch to make it Special:
Here I added some Copic coloring and some sewing
And the last is over the top to make it Stunning:
And to make this stunning I hand cut the "Santas" out and popped them up. I added Stickles to the image and more embellishments. I also use transparency as my card base.
I hope you enjoyed a look at Simple, Special, Stunning. Have a great Saturday and see you soon!
TGIF!! It's Friday again and that means a new challenge at the Humble Pie blog. This week the challenge was to make an altered item. If you don't have Humble Pie stamps, that's ok you can still play along.
What I did for the challenge was to make a little tag journaling book for the upcoming Christmas holidays. Now I'm all set to write down all the little fun things that happen in the next few weeks.
Materials: Humble Pie stamps (Maggie with the Christmas lights), Page Frames acrylic tag booklet, Copic Markers and Spica pens, Little Yellow Bicycle Letter stickers, Savvy'n'Sassy ribbon, Making Memories Epoxy stickers, My Mind's Eye paper, Maya Road sheers.
Also Phebe at the Town Scrapper is having a sale. Buy 1 item and get 2nd of equal or lesser value for 50% off. Sale is on until the middle of January 2010. And note that Phebe's store will be closed from Dec. 11 to 21.
Good morning! It's a windy day here. I can hear it beating the house right now. Hope your weather is good today, where ever you are.
Today I have a ribbon tree to share with you. You can find the tutorial I posted on the Savvy'n'Sassy blog here. This is a super easy project, a bit time consuming but I love the end product. I bought my Styrofoam tree at Michaels. You can get all different sizes. And all the ribbon is from Savvy'n'Sassy.
I still need a topper for it. I haven't decided what to use yet.
