This monthy the design team has the absolute pleasure of designing with some fabulous products from Upsy Daisy Designs.  Here’s a peek….

This layout was made using Upsy Daisy’s London Blush line, and ribbon from the Gingerbread Fairy Tale Kit. I also used Upsy Daisy’s Sweet Slumber Cardstock Stickers.

Again using the London Blush line, and the Gingerbread Fairy Tale ribbon kit, I also used Upsy Daisy Basic White Alpha Rub-ons to create my cards.

My last little project is an altered sticky note holder.  I love that this paper from London Blush is double sided, and of a thicker weight.  It makes doing projects like these so easy!  The inside is already pre-decorated with a gorgeous pattern!

You can get your own set of London Blush papers, as well as a few other goodies, in the Savvy N Sassy store!

Oh what fun I had this month! SNS had a wonderful sponsor, Tin Box Creations, and I was honored to play with TBC‘s Spring Flower Set as well as SNS‘s April Boys n Dirt Kit.

First up I altered this faux leather box. I used Tin Box Creationsdotted flower border stamp from the Spring Flower Set, to stamp on the Olive – White Stitch Ribbon. I also used Mini Olive Ric Rac from the SNS Boys N Dirt Kit too. Other supplies Used: Stash Beads (to spell “Grow Beauty”), Stash flowers, Fancy Pants Rub Ons and Paper Frills.

More details to this box can be found HERE.

On my Altered Tile Project. I stamped the Flower Garden stamp with Staz On ink directly on my once plain tile:) I then stamped the tile with the dotted flower border using Red Staz On Ink then outlining it with Red Stickles. Stash Sticker, Stash Blue Hearts and some awesome Mini Olive Ric Rac, and I was done!. Such a fast and easy project!

On my next project I created my Patterned Paper by using watercolor paints for the background. I then stamped it with TBC’s dotted flower & leaves stamps from the Spring Flower Set. I also “flocked” the dotted flower & Leaves stamps using a flocking kit I purchased from the SNS Store. The particular one I used is sold out, but HERE is a similar one, just different colors:) Once dry I used Frosted Lace Stickles in the center of the flower. The glossy Flower by the “nature” tag was the dotted flower stamped on the backside of cardstock, embossed with a stylus, then sanded and inked and then used diamond glaze on it. I also used Baby Blue Stickles on the Huge Tan Ric Rac from the SNS Boys N Dirt Kit. This LO amazes me that I started out with just a white sheet of cardstock!

More details to this LO can be found HERE.

Next up is an altered Kleenex holder. I used Mini Olive Ric Rac & Oatmeal Grosgrain from the kit. I also used Basic Grey Boxer Patterned paper – Cargo & Basic Grey Boxer stickers from the store. More Details can be found HERE.

I altered an address book too. I used White Twill Tape from the SNS April Boys N Dirt kit. Other products used: Bohemia Barefoot & Dots/Red, Basic Grey Archaic/Rusty & Scenic Route Chipboard.

My next LO is 6 x 12 in size. I used Mini Olive Ric Rac & Oatmeal Grosgrain from the SNS Boys N Dirt kit. I also used Basic Grey Arcaic PP (Timeworn, Rusty, Dirty, Primal), stash stickers and a white pen.

My Last LO is 12 x 12 in size. I used White Twill Tape from the SNS April Boys N Dirt kit, as well as Cloud 9 Design PP (Man’s Best Friend), Fancy Pants PP, a Love Elsie Star, and red Cardstock.

What fun I had this month! Thanks Tin Box Creations and SNS!!

First of all, I will share the projects created with both the stamp kit – “Geo Style” and the ZZ ribbon Kit – “Take Five”

This LO I created for my  my challenge in the SnS Crop last week. I used one of the stamps to create an effect on the big number 4!


This next LO was also created for another of my challenges at the SnS Crop. I used of the the stamps to create the circles at the top of the page!

This third LO was created for my “Down to the Wire” class in the crop! Check out the link to find out how I made the wire and beaded flower! I used the stamp to created an effect behind the title word.

This month I had such a great time working with the SNS April Showers kit!

I love that although the ribbons are all blue and white, they can be used for a variety of vastly different coloured projects!!

For this layout I used the white cotton lace from the kit. It was also a challenge from our Olympics Online crop last week. I used little gems on the waves to give a bit of shine to the water.  

For this layout I used the white venice lace from the kit….another challenge from the online crop! I just love the white lace!! I also used the Bo Bunny Teen Chic papers from the store.

I altered this Kaiser Craft floral hanging keepsake with Upsy Daisy Designs Tweet paper line from the store, periwinkle satin edge organza and columbia blue white stitch from the kit. What a fun project to do!

This month we were also lucky enough to be sponsored by Tin Box Creations and got to use their cool clear photopolymer stamps!! Thanks so much Tin Box!! I got to work with the fun and creative Styl’n Around stamp set. These are my projects using the stamps and SNS ribbon together! What an awesome combination!!

For this layout I used the stamps to make the snowflakes for the background. I also used the white venice lace, one of my favourites!

For this layout I used the stamps to make a decorative border around the page. The ribbon I used is white venice lace (again), huge dusty blue ric rac and white blue venice lace daisy.

I used 5 different Styl’n Around stamps to make these cards. It’s fun to see the many different uses for these stamps…flowers, snowflakes, funky designs, borders…they are so versatile! Ribbons I used are: white venice lace, white cotton lace, huge dusty blue ric rac, columbia blue white stitch, periwinkle satin edge organza and white blue venice lace daisy.

What a fun month!  Not only yummy ribbons to work with, but also some great stamps from our sponsor Tin Box Creations!!  And on top of that, we had a great time at our Olympics crop!  (BTW, if you need any more inspiration, the SavvynSassy gallery is jam-packed full of awesome stuff from the crop!)

I got to work with the ZZ Flora Bella ribbon kit and the Totally Unique stamp set–a great combo, I might add!



This Girl


Using Staz-On ink allowed me to stamp over the paper and photo at the same time.  🙂  “Unique” is stamped on cardstock and then cut out and applied with 3D adhesive.  This sheer black ribbon is one of my current favorites.  I had to order extra from the store!

Other Supplies: Daisy D’s paper and tag; Creative Imaginations die-cut paper; Prima flowers; assorted buttons; AC rubons; Lil Davis alphas; black alpha heart bead; Darice rhinestones; Black Zig writer pen

Just Be You Wall Hanging

I love using the “not-so-perfect” photos on my layouts and altered projects.  Somehow they seem to express a lot more personality.  🙂 

Again, I used Staz-On ink to stamp directly onto the photo–I love how it turned out!  The fact that each word in this set is separate allows them to be combined in all sorts of fun ways. 

I used the giant ric-rac from the kit to divide the work area and then stapled little scraps of ribbons around the corner of the photo for some extra texture.  The ivory grosgrain that serves as a hanger also came from the Flora Bella kit.

I gave the chipboard bird stitched legs to echo those of the birds in the patterned paper.

Other Supplies: MME and Bird Paper; Daisy Hill chipboard alphas; Maya Road chipboard bird; Lil Davis alphas; DMC floss; Alpha beads; Staz On ink; blue and brown ribbon from SnS 

Beatiful Miracle

I thought this photo called for a really simple layout.  I used the circle frame stamp on the cardstock and portions of it to embellish the chipboard letters.  “beautiful” is stamped, cut out, and adhered with 3D adhesive.  I LOVE this olive trim from the ribbon kit.  It adds elegance to just about anything.  🙂

Other Supplies: Paper Bouquet cardstock; Heidi Swapp and Basic Grey chipboard alphas; Walnut Stain Distress Ink; new and vintage buttons; DMC floss; Daisy D’s rubon

Lights, Camera, Action

Another not-so-great picture that says a lot about this girl!  I had fun just mixing patterns and products here!  I used the sheer black from the ribbon kit again–it goes with just about anything.  I used the circle frame, chandelier, and photo corner stamp as embellishments.  The photo corner is actually turned to make it into a check mark. Then covered with glossy accents and adhered with 3D adhesive.

I added some tiny rhinestones to the chandelier and then covered it with glossy accents as well.  It’s layered over the circle frame on 3D adhesive for extra dimension.

Other Supplies: KI Lace Cardstock; Unknown number paper; American Crafts papers; memo sheet; Heidi Swapp ghost stars; Darice rhinestones; Glossy Accents; Staz-On ink; Daisy D’s rubon; American Crafts alpha rubons; Lil Davis alphas; staples
