I just found Sheetload this month and love it! The card ideas are great and I love that you give the dimensions to cut out the pieces (and how to make a sheet of them at once). I love, love, love sketches and patterns...

What a why didn't I think of that idea. I am so glad someone finally came up with this idea. The 1000 of sketch site very few tell you the dimensions or the amount of paper you need I love Love this site. I only wish you came out more than once a month.

Only 1 thing I LOVE? Ok, it has to be the multiple cards aspect and they are simple and cute! Ok, that's 2 but ya really can't blame me. :) Keri R.

Jill said...

I just love that I can make several cards with one sketch and the cutting needs are all figured out for me. Cardmakers that haven't found this site are really missing out. Thanks for the blog candy opp! ~Jill G.~

I love the ability to make more than one card from a sheet ... and I like seeing the designers tips and projects.

I love everything about it. I can sit down and have immediate fun creating. You provide the basics and I can simply worry about the embellishment and details. I love doing multiple cards at a time. What would I add???
Maybe more info on how others are using your system like you did with Beth's idea.

Becky said...

I love how you give directions for cutting the paper to eliminate waste. I can't think of anything to change at this point.

I completed my first Sheetload just last week. I LOVED it! The cutting templates are priceless (especially for me - I need measurements!). And the best part was using up some papers I had, with few scraps left over. Or maybe the best part was adding 6 gorgeous cards to my stash...

Congrats on the success! Keep it up :)

My absolute favorite thing about SheetLoad is how much easier it will make my workshop prep-it's such a HUGE timesaver. Well, that and the fact that I don't have to *think* - they give all the measurements. Doesn't get much easier than that!

I love to look at the differnt cards using the same pattern. I also like that this is from a Stampin' Up demonstrator so I can implement these ideas in my workshops & classes.

Lori Barnett said...

I just found out about this today :) I had a chance to look at the latest and it's looking like another addictive papercrafting resouce!! Wow...I'm NEVER gonna get my house cleaning done...but I mean come one...what's more important! ha! I'm gonna try this out cause when I make a card I usually only make one BECAUSE I forget my measurements and don't want to measure all over again. This is PERFECT!!

I found Sheetload just this month and LOVE it! I also enjoyed meeting the featured designers a bit more personally.

I would like to see a techniques "highlight of the month" added to each issue. That way we could be shown something new to incorporate that maybe we haven't tried before, as well as attempt and make our new cards from the new month's issue.

OR we could all submit some of our best TIPS and have a 'TOP TEN TIPS' section each month!

THANKS for offering such great inspiration!

I love what you do best - figuring how to make multiples of a single pattern! I've used double-sided DP when I can and it stretches the possibilities in nice ways!

I thought the cards were extremely easy to download and were already in 'printable' format. I'd like to see cards using background stamps so I can save money on patterned paper.

What I love about sheet load of cards is seeing the different creations of the card artists using
the same card sketch! I'm always amazed at how different the cards can look. I would like to see....can't think of a thing. You do a great job.

I love all the different interpretations of the monthly SheetLoad design. I think SheetLoad could branch out a bit and maybe feature other types of projects with the SheetLoad concept in mind.

Colleen said...

I just found Sheetload this month and looking forward to using this idea.

I think using the same concept and making it into something that could be used for scrapbook pages would be great.

Nicole said...

I like having the option to print the magazine or just read in online over and over again. The card ideas are inspiration when you sometimes hit a roadblock. I would like see in future ezines different sizes and shapes of cards.

I love the layout and the multiple ideas made from that layout. I would love to see layout ideas that have less "scrap" paper leftover from cutting.
