Flourishes, roses, and SheetLoad!

I really liked the daintiness of this one. I punched the flourishes out with my EK Success punch. And I used all The Angel Company product. Awesome, huh? That paper is just gorgeous! This uses the incredible June SheetLoad sketch and it's fabulous. The little roses were created with three layers of a simple flower punch and then scrunched up. And I used little green brads from my stash.

Krafty SheetLoad!

I stamped on Kraft paper for this one. Adorable image from The Angel Company; it is colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. Love the look of the Kraft! The rest of the paper, the ribbon, and the embellishments are all Angel Company. They are just incredible!! The June issue of SheetLoad is such a good one. I hope you have taken the time to go see it, download it, and USE it!

Sweet SheetLoad!

This one is SWEET!! It uses an image from Little Cupcake from The Angel Company. All of the paper is from The Angel Company too! The only things that aren't, are the little pink brads. I'm not sure where those came from...a magic place called "my stash." This sketch is from the June issue of SheetLoad and is so versatile. Love it. The adorable cupcake is colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS...and I used the Fiskars apron lace border punch to add a little daintiness.

Another SheetLoad...

I just love the paper from The Angel Company. It is so beautiful and the coordinating pieces are just incredible! The image and sentiment are from the set "Little Cupcake". It is colored with Primsacolor pencils and OMS. I had to use my Fiskars apron lace border punch. I've discovered that I have an addiction to border punches. How does one live without border punches? I don't know! The little flowers are punched out and then use a coordinating eyelet as the center. I love all of the Angel Company product that I got to play with. This sample is one that I made for the June issue of SheetLoad. You have gotten your copy, right?!?

Another adorable SheetLoad, Bitten by the Bug, Cutting Cafe card!

Hello all. It's time to show another item created with the June Sheetload of Cards and The Cutting Cafe. The Cutting Cafe images are adorable and you can purchase them here! I loved the popsicle image as soon as I saw it. It's one that I will use again and again.

I used paper from my scraps and dimensional magic to give the wet look to the popsicle. This image is intended to be used as a shaped card, but I reduced it to use as an amazing embellishment. This makes it so easy to print out and cut out. I'm lovin' it!

I had some little bikini embellishments from long ago that went well, and I'm always looking for a way to use the alphabet beads. Have you used the June SheetLoad download yet? It's so easy and so versatile!

All of the details are in The June SheetLoad issue and you need to browse it and create some cards too! It's such a great sketch, so easy to work with. The image is from Little Cupcake and is colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. The paper and embellishments are all from The Angel Company. Aren't they just fabulous?

One of my favorites...

I'm not sure if this takes the #1 spot for me from the June issue of SheetLoad or if the cherry one does...but I do really, really like this. I love how the EK Success wavy border punch goes with the amazing Angel Company paper! The image is from Little Cupcake from The Angel Company and colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I added some pearls from Kaiser Craft and love how special they make this one.

What a challenge!!

SheetLoad, ShortCuts, Cutting Cafe and Bitten By the Bug ALL TOGETHER have a challenge for the design teams and a contest for everyone else until June 22, 2009; check out the details HERE. I made four cards (that's the great thing about SheetLoad!!!) using a design from the Cutting Cafe. Adorable ice cream cone, yes? I used the June sketch from SheetLoad (love that sketch).

I printed out the ice cream cone on the two different papers, cut, and glued. Viola. Easy peasy and adorable. I cut out the "mmmmmmm" with the Cuttlebug. I sponged a bit of ink on the ice cream cone for dimension.

Wouldn't this be the perfect way to invite people for a neighborhood ice cream party? I think so!

The game of card tag and my card reveal!

Alicia started the game of tag with this
card for her cousin's wedding...

Sue kept the layout, but flipped it.

Liz kept the layout, but look how much it changed!!!

Lisa made a completely different card with a similar layout.

Ann kept Lisa's layout, but changed it up a lot. Cute, huh?

Barbara flipped the card...sweet.

Heather kept the clothing going.

Katie did too! Isn't that fun?!?!

I was totally drawn to the sentiment with the dots, so I changed things up a LOT, but I love how my card turned out.

Then amazing... Nikki used the colors from my card this make this fabulous barbeque card.

Wasn't that a fabulous card trip?

One of my cards...

I'm trying to decide if this is my favorite...it might be. I really, really like it. SheetLoad was sponsored by Shawna Renville and The Angel Company. I'm loving it! The sketch was by Nicole Anderson. Awesome!!

The details are in the SheetLoad June issue, but here's a mini rundown. I used Little Cupcake stamp set from The Angel Company, Prismacolor pencils and OMS, punch for the cherry leaves, red eyelets for the cherries...and quite a bit of hand stitching. I think it's just adorable. And the paper...isn't it something?!?! It's also from The Angel Company! Love it!

It's here! June SheetLoad!

Go, go, go. Go to SheetLoad and download your copy. It's a keeper!
