This month we had the absolute pleasure of having Ann Seleshanko as our Guest Designer.  Ann worked with ribbon from the ZZ Rainbow Bliss Kit.  Please take a moment to read what Ann had to say below, and check out some of her gorgeous creations!

My name is Ann and I’m a SAHM of 2 boys. I’ve been married for almost 10 years to my best friend. I started scrapbooking 9 years ago and haven’t stopped since. I love to do all size of pages but I mostly do 12X12. I also love to do mini albums & cards too. My favorite techniques are anything to do with stamping. I also love to collect stamps too!

I’m so excited to have the opportunity to work with this great Design team. Thank you Savvy n Sassy!

This month we were sponsored by Upsy Daisy Designs. They provided us with their new collections. I got to work with the “Vroom” collection. Seeing I have a little boy, these papers worked PERFECTLY for his photos!

Here are the layouts I created with the “Vroom” papers.


I used the Basic White Alphas rub-ons for the titles on the “Notes for Life” and the “You Love to Read” layouts. The arrow on the “Notes for Life” is from the B.U. Boy rub-ons.  The Blurred Vision title was created with the Ice Cream Shoppe alphabet stickers.

Here are the cards I created with the papers and rub-ons.


This last card was created with the B.U. Boy rub-ons. I wanted to make it look like pattern paper.

These colours matched perfectly with a lot of the Savvy N Sassy ribbons. I didn’t have any scraps left over. I used every piece of paper I had!

All the collections are versatile and economical being they are double-sided. I find it useful when collections are double-sided because the matching is done for you and you know they will coordinate.

For the whole design team at Savvy N Sassy, I want to thank the girls over at Upsy Daisy Designs for supplying us with these quality products to “play” with this month! I know I really enjoyed using your company’s products and trying something new. Thank you!

I used up every little scrap of my Upsy Daisy papers to make this centerpiece/decoration.  I love that the bright colors match my daughter’s room, too. 

I picked up these wooden hearts after Valentine’s Day for 90% off.  They were weird animal prints with hot pink and just seemed to be asking for a makeover.  Both sides are decorated, so it can be set in the center of a table with color on all sides.  Ribbons used are from the May Rainbow Bliss kit, as well as lime grosgrain from the store.

Other Supplies: flowerpot-IKEA, buttons-Walmart, hearts-Hobby Lobby
