Hello and Thinking of You

Hi friends! Today I'm popping in with a bunch of cards made with the Call Me Crafty Al December 2021 Sheetload of Cards sketch and cutting guides. This was my first time doing one and I had a lot of fun. This one made 9 cards with three sheets of 12 x 12 paper, plus cardstock for layering, images, and card bases.

I have lots of pretty 12 x 12 paper that needs a little love, so pulled out a favorite collection from Carta Bella. I'm not one to mass produce since I get bored with the same design. So I didn't stick to the sketch for all of my cards, instead moving the cut pieces around as I wanted.  I also went with a portrait layout instead of landscape because I prefer creating in that direction.

I'm getting ready to send off a box of cards to the Scrapbook.com Card Drive and right now they're looking for thinking of you and hello cards, so that's what I focused on for this set, mainly using the Script Sentiments (now back in stock!) set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

In addition I used the Nature Silhouettes set for the top right card and the bottom center card.  The thinking of you cards in the center row use sets from Hero Arts.

When I was done I had some leftovers, so decided to make a tenth card featuring a new to me clearance find, Painted Peonies set from Concord and 9th. Isn't that flower gorgeous?  I used C9 inks for stamping the layering stamps, then fussy cut the image to pop up as my focal point.

If you're interested in playing along, the January Sheetload of Cards is inspired by a Mojo Monday sketch of mine. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have an incredible start to you week!
