NEW Look for a NEW Year... and some more reader cards.

I am just so very excited about SheetLoad and 2008!!

Some of my artists have seen the "new look" already and can agree, SheetLoad is getting an Extreme eZine Makeover for the new year!

We also have a few sponsors lined up and are excited to get some product for our artists to use, as well as get the sponsoring companies additional publicity. It's a win-win if you ask me.

Make sure to keep checking back, as I will be giving a sneak preview of the January sketch in the next week or so.

I will close today with a few cards made by Tammie. She used the layout from our first-ever issue of SheetLoad. Thanks for sharing, Tammie!

Thanks for sharing these, Vera!!

To the rest of the readers: Keep 'em coming. I love to see what you are doing with the SheetLoad. Not only may I feature your cards in a post, but everyone's will get added to the slideshow at the bottom of the main page.

SheetLoad has been Snap Shotz'd!!!

Please check out Snap Shotz's wonderful post about SheetLoad of Cards! Snap Shotz is the blog for Scrap Shotz - a great online scrapbooking store and message board.
If you are looking for great chat, cool tutorials and year 'round challenges, this is a great site to check out. I participated in the last crop they had this year and can hardly wait for 2008 to join in again.
Carla, one of their design team members, created the sketch I used in the first issue of SheetLoad. It is still one of my favorite sketches to date - yes, even with my own included. ;)

Yep, a full set (16 packages) of the Studio G (series 7) stamps!!

Here is how you get entries:

What you must do to be qualified:
Leave a comment here with:

How the winner is chosen:
After all entries are in, I will compile a list of names and for each entry your name will be put that many times into the drawing. (ie: if Shelly J has 6 entries, she will have her name on the list 6 times.)

Thanks and happy promotin'!

What a difference a day makes!

I checked the counter last night and in just 24 hours SheetLoad had almost 600 hits! Fantastic!

I doubt it will keep up that pace, but if you frequent crafting message boards, could you give a little shout out to SheetLoad? Pretty please?

Welcome to our new home...

I decided it was time to start a blog dedicated solely to my FREE eZine, SheetLoad of Cards.

For my loyal "fans" I hope you enjoy the new site. To any new visitors I hope this blog becomes "stalk-worthy".

Nothing really new for today since the December issue is already up at Call Me {Crafty} Al, but I did want to share a link to all of the issues here.
