A sheetload blast from this past August

Here are some of the cards I made using Call Me Crafty Al's August 2020 Sheetload.  I had thought I doubled the sheetload, but actually I quadrupled it.  Alicia's sketches make it very easy to do that!!!

I used papers from a 6x8 Simple Stories paper pad I got last summer at Butterfly Reflections Ink.  It's actually not terribly far from me and I enjoyed being able to go inside a scrapbook & card making store.  That's becoming such a rarity!!! Sometimes you just want to be able to see the product IRL before you buy it right?

The pretty squares of images came from my friend Mary-Ann. She was doing a stash sale a couple summers back and threw these into my box. I tweaked Alicia's design cause I wanted to be able to use these squares.  They were supposed to be images with sentiments below, but since most had sentiments I kept the rest of the cards unstamped.  Some sequins and twine were added for some extra eye candy.  I have a very hard time with "less is more" when it comes to cards!

Some squares didn't have a sentiment, but that's okay.  My hubs and I write longish messages inside the cards we send, so the recipients will have plenty to read. LOL!

These cards made using the August 2020 Sheetload got me to about half-way done with my cards.  I thought I had enough made from doubling the October 2020 Sheetload, but I think I may have to triple/quadruple that set. Won't be hard since Alicia gives you all the measurements and cut guides.  Gonna go play some Christmas tunes and make my last few cards.  So excited to be ahead for a change. Yay!!!

What are you doing for Christmas cars this year?  What are your favorite Christmas color combos?
