This Kit just rocks!I loved the pinks and blacks, the dots and velvet.They were so versatile to work with and went with just about anything.

This month, to make things extra special, our Design Team was sponsored by the generous Magitical Memories Chipboard
Thanks Magistical Memories.The chipboard goodies were such a treat, and a pleasure to use.

Now onto a few creations.If you’d like to look at close-ups, details, or see what the rest of the team did this month, please go Here

For my first layout I used 2 sizes of “Desire Flower” chipboard. I covered them in papers which matched the layout, layered one atop the other, used my Crop-a-Dile to punch through them and threaded the yummy dotted organza through it.

Here I painted the largest Star Leaf chipboard shape with a bright Kiwi paint, and then added a light pink shimmer once dry.
I also used the very versatile Ruler Jacuard trim from the ribbon kit.

In this layout, I left the Pinted Maggie chipboard bare to match the natural feel I was hoping to attain with the layout. The rub-on I used on the chipboard went on smoothly and easily.

This month I had the fun of working with ZZ August Picture Post card ribbon kit. I don’t usually work with lace, but I wanted a challenge and this lace is so nice it made it easy. I also got to play with some awesome Magistical Memories chipboard. These are a few of my creations. The rest can be seen here.

THIS is the incredible kit I chose to work with this month!  Lace is not something I have incorporated into my designs a whole lot in the past, so I was really looking forward to playing around and seeing what I could come up with.  AND, if having an incredible lace kit to design with wasn’t enough, we had the most amazing sponsor product to work with this month as well!  MAJISTICAL MEMORIES was so kind (and generous) to provide all the DT with some of their yummy chipboard this month.  Thank-you ever so much Magistical Memories!! xoxo

Take a peek at some of my designs, and you can check out more in the gallery.

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
