March 2009 SheetLoad of Cards


The March 2009 issue of SheetLoad, is packed full of "NEWs". It is a NEW layout, a NEW sponsor, and the first issue for our NEW Sample Artist!!

After last month's "Yudu experiment", it became apparent many of you save the file and just open it on your computer. I have decided to reformat the eZine to landscape. This way when you fill your screen with the issue, it will show up larger.

Melissa Machado, an Independent Consultant for Close To My Heart (and a SheetLoad Sample Artist), is sponsoring this issue. You will notice lots of awesome stamps, papers and embellishments. To purchase CTMH products for yourself, stop by Melissa's CTMH Site. She is giving out a FREE stamp with every purchase this month!

And lastly, but definitely not least, this is the month that Barbara debuts as a Sketch Artist! She has been with us since the beginning as a Sample Artist and when one of our Sketch Artists had to leave, she jumped at the chance to give it a try. I have to say - I like it! :)

ETA: I have been helping those having problems via email and it seems like most of the readers with issues downloading the file, are using AOL or a non-Internet Explorer web browser.

If you have problems, please make sure you are "save"ing the file and not "open"ing it when the box pops ups.

Something else to try: Right click on the issue thumbnail and select "Save target as...". This will then prompt you to save the PDF file to your computer.



I will be gone all weekend, so if you are having troubles and nothing above works, go ahead and email me for the file and I will get to it on Monday.

Looks great!

My only question is, does anyone have a link to an envelope template for square cards? ;)

Ohhh...I tried to open the March issue all day, but it won't download and I tried both in Firefox and in Explorer. Am I the only one who is having problems? I would love to see..

I love this sheetload so much that I sat down as soon as I downloaded it and made my cards.

I only got four fully complete but the others are in various stages and I'm so absolutely overjoyed to be ahead *gasp* on my Easter cards this year.

You guys rock - BIG TIME! Thanks.

Why when I download this month's ezine, there is no sketch or cutting diagrams? I tried both Safari and Mozilla and even checked the past months and I am only having a problem with March. ?????

I tried to open the e-zine twice and both times I got only the information but not pictures neother sketches, so sad, I really want to try the sketch.

Vivienne said...

I also don't get the sketches, or cutting diagrams. And the front page is blank!

For some reason, the pictures are not downloading in Adobe. So I am practically having the same problem as some of the other gals. HELP!!! Thanks!

I keeping trying it and it works okay on my end (I am using Internet Explorer). If you have problems, please email me at sheetload@comcast.net and I can send the file via email.
Thanks!

Those having problems getting the pix in the download, if you are opening it up in another tab or window, try saving it to your desktop and opening it from there once it downloads. I encounter a lot of problems trying to open pdf files in my browser for some reason, but they always seem to work fine after I've downloaded to my computer.

Great issue, Think i will get started on some Easter cards soon. Thanks for all the work you do Alicia. The samples are all lovely.

I just wanted to tell you that I really, REALLY love the 'beyond the card' examples. I know this is all a LOT of work and I want you to know it truly is appreciated.

THANK YOU!!!
