Just a Note | Close to my Heart + Sheetload of Cards

 

Friday morning I was part of a Crafty Zoom that was hostessed by my friend Chris Franco.  The two hours went quick but I was able to whip together these nine cards:



Have you heard of Sheetload of Cards?  It's a genius concept of taking three 12x12's and a couple 8.5x11's, a card sketch and your stamp[s] of choice.  I'm hooked!  I'm so glad that Chris thought of  doing this Crafty Zoom.  I had squirrel away doing the Sheetload of Cards sometime this month but loved the extra nudge.

I had all the paper/cardstock cut prior to the zoom and finished up the cards with an additional time, under an hour.  If I had the overall design figured out prior to the zoom, that would have reduced my time.  Next time I'm going to try a design with less coloring.

Can you believe the paper I used is actually CTMH's Holly Jolly, a Christmas collection?  They retired it but I may have picked up a couple different packs.


The CTMH stamps I used:

Desserts a la Wirl
SOM - Cherishing Her


I love how these turned out, perfect for Galentine's Day!

These are so sweet, Amy! Wouldn't have thought the papers were from a Christmas collection--so versatile!
Fabulous blend of patterns on these super charming cards, Amy. The scale of each (pattern) works together in perfect harmony.
