Stampin' Up with a SheetLoad of Cards!

Hello, Friends! It has been a while since I've posted! My goodness! There has been a lot going on with me and it's just easier for me to post to Instagram. It's quicker and I can post on the go from my phone. But things are starting to settle a bit and I am hopeful that I will be able to pop in and share here a little more often. 

Today, I'm sharing another SheetLoad of cards. This one is for Crafty Al's SheetLoad Rewind, where she revisits an older sketch. I like it because sometimes she gives a fresh new take on the sketch. If you're not familiar with the whole SheetLoad concept, please click HERE to see her YouTube channel.

 Here are the cards I created...


The whole idea behind the SheetLoad sketches, is to create a lot of cards with minimal waste. It's really a GREAT concept and if you follow the cutting guides that Crafty Al shares, you will see that it works! This sketch yielded 6-8 cards and I used TWO sheets of 12x12 patterned paper. This is also a great way to use up your paper stash. Speaking of paper, isn't that patterned paper pretty?! It's from Stampin' Up! This was a fun and easy sketch to work with, the hardest part was selecting which papers I wanted to use!

I wanted to use this paper with the blue background. I love how blue and orange look together. I wanted to keep my cards fresh and light so I chose to use white card stock for the card base and matting. I am pleased with the way these turned out.

And here's a close up for you...

Sweet peaches! I love that paper! The greeting, including the Hello die is from GinaK Designs, the sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh and the card stock is Sugar Cube from Taylored Expressions. Remember, if you shop at Taylored Expressions, if you shop through my LINK you'll receive $5 to spend!

That's all I have for you today. Thank you for stopping by! Be safe!

How fun that you posted here, too, Barbara (or can I still call you Barb? Not sure what you'd prefer). I like IG too, for the same reasons you mentioned. But I will admit it's great to see your cards on your blog because I can make the picture bigger and really get a good look. I like the sheetload concept for the reasons you do, as well and this batch of yours is just so peachy keen! Pretty, pretty paper and I just love the hello die and the sentiment. Perfect combination. Thanks for sharing, and I look forward to seeing more of your takes on sheetloads in the future. Big crafty hugs my friend. :)
