The FINAL Issue - December '09 - Sponsored by Doodle Palace

This month at SheetLoad of Cards is full of BIG... big issue, big announcement and big prizes!!


(click on thumbnail above to download your FREE issue)

BIG Issue
At 22 pages, the December '09 issue of SheetLoad, is the biggest one yet! We also had a huge design team, as almost all 16 of our artists participated, along with six artists from the sponsor's design team.

The cover this month features a card by Nicole Anderson and the issue features a sketch by 'moi', Alicia Ekermans. We were thrilled to be able to work with lots of awesome digital stamps from Doodle Palace.

As always this FREE issue shows you how to create multiple cards using a few papers and a great layout. If you follow the cutting guides this month, you will end up with twelve (12) cards. This would be a great issue to use for your Christmas or other holiday cards.

Big Announcement
As you may have gathered from the blog post title, this will be the final issue of SheetLoad of Cards. Even though it is our final issue, it won't be the end of your access to our archives and we will still be putting 100% into our final month here on the blog.

Check back later this month for a post with more details on the archive and why/how this decision was made.

Big Prizes
As always our sponsor will be providing some great prizes for our monthly challenges. You will be able to enter to win a chance to create with some Doodle Palace digital stamps of your own!!

Since this is also our Blog-A-Versary Month, there just might be an extra challenge and prize thrown in as well. ;)
