Sheetload of Christmas

Updated to add: This month's Show Us Your Sheetload and Win contest is up!

I downloaded the July issue of Sheetload last night and decided to work on them tonight. I tried to keep them very simple so they would go faster and I was able to make 9 of them! They were so easy and I have so many supplies left, I may make a sheetload more!

I used up a lot of really old Basic Grey Christmas papers and these super old Making Memories metal charms that I bought on clearance years ago. I did a couple variations on the card, but I think this particular layout is my fave.

I followed the sketch pretty closely, just adding the scalloped strip and that's it! You can see from this second picture the different charms I used - present, stocking, and ornament.

BTW - the sentiment was done with the JustRite monogram stamper! I've seen so many cool samples done with the small alphabet that I had to give it a try myself and I love the look! It was easier than I thought it would be to plug all those little letters in, but I still figured I ought to stamp it about a hundred times before cleaning and putting them all away!

Thanks to Sheetload for the inspiration!
