January Sheetload of Cards by Call Me Crafty Al

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing with you a couple of my January Sheetload of Cards that I made using the Call me Crafty Al sketch and printables.

Crafty Al makes these free to everyone who subscribes and they are so awesome if you are the type of person that likes to mass produce a bunch of cards at a time or even work on one. She tells you how to do both!

You need to head to this link and find out how you can get in on all the fun for this month, which also includes some great printable sentiments. You can check out a wide assortment of her fun videos on her YouTube channel as well.

I kept pretty much to the sketch for mine but there are so many ways that you can alter it to fit your style….instead of the banner, you could use just a border punch, you could add small embellishments, use a picture instead of the sentiment and add the sentiment elsewhere….it’s yours to play with.

For the first card, I made the batch of 9 that the instructions give you and kept it pretty plain as I was mailing these out as part of a swap for Splitcoaststampers. I used some of the Simple Stories Autumn Splendor line and then just some cardstock from my stash. These printables are fabulous and they are free from Crafty Al as part of the January Sheetload. You get a lot!

I don’t remember the paper for the second one, but it was in my box and I decided to use the single card instructions as I was using 6×6 paper. I also added just a few of the little enamel hearts that I had sitting on my desk

Either way, the instructions are easy to follow and she tells you all the measurements and pretty much everything you need to know…it’s cardmaking at its easiest!

I hope you will stop by her YouTube channel, subscribe and get lost in all the great videos she has…there are so many sheetloads to choose from and it’s a great way to start off your cardmaking for 2021!

Hello!  I want to share with you a card that I created for theFestive Friday Creative Challenge!

This is what they gave us to work with and the challenge is to use any three on your project!

Here’s my card, using this month’s Sheetload of Cards from Call Me Crafty Al.  You can find the link here, to see how you too can get these really fun monthly sketches!

Here is my card!

I managed to incorporate quite a few of the suggestions in this card!  I used some pieces from my October 2018 SCT Sampler…

The DP is from Bella Blvd’s Sweet & Spooky Collection (flowers and polkadots).  The stamped image (green) and sentiment (friendship sentiment) is from Stampin Up as are the inks.  I did emboss the sentiment using some Stampendous embossing powder (embossing).  The die cut is also from Stampin up and the vellum is my last of the Doodlebug!  (I got a lot of projects out of that 12×12 sheet!).  To finish it off, just some bling from my stash (sparkle).

If you want a fun challenge the Festive Friday blog has some great ones and this one is open until the 30th.

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
