April 2009 - Sponsored by The Greeting Farm

I know I say this every month, but this has got to be one of the best issues of SheetLoad yet!!

(click on the thumbnail above to download your copy**)

The April 2009 issue of SheetLoad is sponsored by The Greeting Farm. A few months ago I discovered their stamps, and am hooked. I was so thrilled when Marie, the owner, agreed to sponsor an issue. Her unmounted rubber and digital stamps are so much fun to work with. If you haven't heard of them yet, I am sure you will be hooked soon.

The sketch in this month's issue will be the final one for our fabulous sketch artist - Michelle Dobbyn. After being with SheetLoad for a great and long haul, she has decided to step down from her position. Her creativity will definitely be missed. Thanks Michelle, for all of your hard work and dedication.

You will notice we have brought on a Guest Artist for this issue as well. Her name is Melyssa Connolly, and she is outrageously talented. I "met" Melyssa when she applied for, and got a position on, my ShortCuts Design Team. After seeing some projects she had created using stamps from The Greeting Farm, I knew she would be perfect for this issue. Since then I have found out Marie appreciates her work as well - Melyssa is now a member of The Greeting Farm's Spring Design Team!! Check back later this month for a special episode of "Meet the Artists" to learn even more about Melyssa.

Don't forget to come back later in the month to find out how you can win some The Greeting Farm goodies for yourself!!

Fabulous issue and resource! I'm so glad I found it! As and FYI, I use Firefox and didn't have any issues downloading, saving, or viewing the newsletter this month or the March issue either.

I have to agree about this being one of the best issues ever!! I *adore* TGF and the samples in this issue are awesome! My fave is the Wicked card (one of my all time fave musicals)!

I'm already working on my Sheetload!

The card on the cover is adorable! I've been aching to try SheetLoad acrylics...I hope my name is chosen :)
