New Link: Sheetload

Is it really September already? Summer went by so quickly...too quickly. But, seeing as how it's the first of the month, it's a perfect time to introduce you to the link I'm adding. The September issue of Sheetload of Cards is up and ready for download!
If you like to make cards and you are wanting to either build your stash or make a set to give as a gift, check out Sheetload of Cards! This site is issues an e-magazine every month with instructions on how to make a lot of cards in a little time. It will provide you with a sketch and tell you how many sheets of cardstock and patterned paper you need, as well as how to cut them and arrange them on your cards. For example, the August issue gave instructions to turn 1 piece of 12x12 cardstock, 1 piece of 8.5x11 cardstock, 1 piece of 4x6 piece of cardstock, and 2 4x6 pieces of patterned paper into 6 cards. After I saw how the 4x6 pieces were going to be cut, I used up some of my scraps instead and got even more mileage out of the sketch!
In addition to the monthly issues, there are 'mini' issues that come out around the middle of each month for those crafters who are really motivated to get even more accomplished! To add to the fun, they sometimes host contests based on the current issue for a chance to win great products!
Perhaps the easiest way to explain is just to show a picture of the cards I made for the month of August. I did them all one evening while watching the Olympics. Easy and fun! I used different Cuttlebug embossing folders for these, and the "Little Hellos" stamp set from StampinUp.
Thanks for looking!
