Sassy Studios Monthly Progressive Challenge April - "For The Ladies"

Hi Everyone

Welcome to the beginning of our monthly progressive challenge over on our FaceBook Fan Page. This will be our 12th challenge, and I really encourage you to join us - there are some fabulous creations from the participants.

Each  month on our FB page Lindsay gives away a free sassy image for you to create with, and this month it is a great image for creating a card or gift for Mother's Day.  Our theme this month is 'For The Ladies' - a project for a gift card. Here is my project.

When you open up the card, it has a little pocket to hold a gift card, or certificate that you have made yourself.

This box is from a file from the Silhouette online store (the paper I used is from DCWV 'Lady Couture' stack)

Of course it need a label that would match the card.

And then a few extra goodies (decorated of course) inside.

So if you would like to join us for the challenge with this image, here is what you need to do (and of course there are a couple of rules):

  • Send a request for the image to ssdpcp@gmail.com
  • You MUST use the Monthly Progressive Sassy Studio Designs image
  • You MUST create a project based on the current challenge theme
  • You have until 11:59pm EDT on May 13th to upload your creation in the Monthly Progressive Challenge #12 album.  (Your photo has to be uploaded to the album to be eligible for the prize)
  • You may enter as often as you wish during the month long time
  • By accepting the SSD freebie image, you agree to follow the SSD Terms of Use
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my project - I can't wait to see your creations.


Simple Tag (Prima Doll)

Hi Everyone

Today I am guest designer over at A Scrap N Place, and I have another Prima Doll project for you all.  It is just a very simple tag - this time I did a little paper piecing with her clothes (I felt like a little girl again.)

Here are the products I used.
  • Prima Doll Stamp
  • Authentique Paper – Abroad Collection “Away”
  • Glitz ‘Yours Truly’ 6 x 6 paper pack
  • Ribbon
  • Black pearls
Here are a couple of close-ups.

What I especially loved about this project was the sentiment, it comes from the top of the 12 x 12 Authentique paper - you know the part we usually trim off and throw away?  I have decided that from here on in I am going to check those strips of paper and cut off the sentiments/quotes and save them for my projects.

See you next time.

The 'Right Shoes' Card

Hi Everyone

Today for my card for A Scrap N Place I am using the Prima Doll stamps again - but in a slightly different way.

  • Prima Doll Stamps
  • Glitz ‘Your Truly’ 6 x 6 paper pack
  • White card stock
  • White gel pen
  • ‘Clear Star’ gel pen
  • ProMarkers (or an alcohol marker for colouring)
Here are a few close-ups.

Thanks for stopping by today.  See you next time.

Best Journeys Card - A Scrap N Place

Hi Everyone

Today I am guest designer over at A Scrap N Place, thank you Terri for having me.  Like I said before, I was so excited to find that Terri would be carrying the Prima doll stamps, they are so much fun to play with.  

All my posts this month for A Scrap N Place are going to be using the Prima dolls, and I hope that you will see how many different ways you can use them.  Here is my first project.

Here is a list of products I used:
  • Prima Doll Stamp
  • Authentique Paper – Abroad Collection “Away”
  • Glitz ‘Yours Truly’ 6 x 6 paper pack
  • Lace
  • Pearls
  • Flower punch
  • Sentiment (computer generated)

Here are some 'close-ups' showing some of the little details.  I really love the 6x6 paper packs for stamping the clothes, the small prints are just perfect.


Well that's it for today - see you next time.

Pretty Pastels - DTBST 222

Hi Everyone

It's Thursday and so time for another DTBST challenge over at Sassy Studios.  The challenge this week is to create something using 'Pretty Pastels'.  Although my photo doesn't show it very well, the blues and yellow in the background paper are pastel shades.

This is an empty pump dispenser that I decided to re-purpose.  The image I am using is Bubble Bath Sassy - I love playing around with this image and using stickles to make the bubbles shimmer and shine.

Here is a look at the label before I attached it to the dispenser.

The background paper is a file from the Silhouette online store, which along with the sentiment I printed using the Cameo.  The image is coloured with ProMarkers, and the bubble finished off with some stickles.

I hope you will join us for today's challenge and check out all the great projects from the rest of the DT over at Sassy Studios.

Until next time.

Prima Doll Thankful Tag

Hi Everyone

Today I am guest designer over at A Scrap N Place, and for my last project of the month I saved my favourite.  I was really excited when Terri told me that she would be selling the Prima Doll stamps, and I couldn't wait to play.

I really love paper piecing (fussy cutting), I can use up so many of the little scraps that I have in my stash, and this is what makes these dolls so versatile.

Supplies used:

Kraft card stock
Green and Brown cardstock (Bazzil)
Sentiment (Canvas Corp)
Embossing folder (Sizzix)
Prima Doll Stamp
Corner Bow die (Memory Box)
Flower punch (Marvy)
Sheer ribbon
Brown lace

Thanks for stopping by today.  Until next time.

Sassy Studios March Release "Go Green...It's Spring"

Hi Everyone 

Welcome to Sassy Studios March Image Release and Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Lindsays blog, but if you have just happened upon the hop by chance you may want to go back to the beginning at Lori's blog.

Once again Lindsay has come up with some great new images, and there is a challenge for you to join in with.  We have a Tic Tac Toe board, use any three square in a row up and down or across (if you wanted to you could try and incorporate everything on the board!)

Here is my project, using the middle line across.

This is a tissue packet holder (using a file that I made with my Silhouette Cameo) - don't you think a friend who has the sniffles would like this?

This is what the back looks like, I actually used some acetate from some packaging as my 'reuse' item to make the 'glass'.

The aspirin stamp is one that I bought from a stamping expo years ago, I've mounted them on pop-up dots - they look quite realistic.

So I hope you enjoyed my project.  You next stop is with my sassy team mate Karal.  I hope you will join in with the challenge for a chance to win some of the new sassy images.
