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 had the pleasure of having Aleks Sokal join our team as our Guest Designer!  Aleks was working with the ZZ April Kit #1 ~ Take Five, and she did an amazing job!!  Thank-you so much for being our guest this month Aleks!!!

You can read more about Aleks, and see some of her fantastic creations below!

My name is Aleksandra Sokal, and I live in Winnipeg Manitoba.  I have 4 kids.
Nicholas (8), Martin (7), Kara (5) and Alexander (4 mos).  I’ve been “officially” been
scrapbooing since 2003 when my daughter was born…but I did have supplies a couple years
before then.  Remember the purple templates from Walmart? Yes, I was the proud owner!

I started 12×12 and for me, it was just too much space I was trying to fill, so I
have switched to 8 1/2 x 11 and was hooked and am much happier with my layouts! I have
previously been on a Design Team for another forum.  I also
enjoy sewing, cross stitch and pretty much any craft I pick up…I’ll be hooked.  So
I try not to explore too much. 😉

Thank you Rhea and the Savvy n’ Sassy Design Team for the opportunity to create with the
*ZZ April Kit #1 – Take Five*

 

You can check out more of Alek’s creations in the gallery!

I have been scrapbooking since middle school. In high-school, I spent a lot of time doing genealogy. Finding out so much about my ancestors and their stories further fueled my desire to scrapbook so that their stories would not be lost. I love scrapbooking for both it’s heirloom, family history side and as an artistic expression. I have a wonderful husband, 3 children and 2 cats. I also enjoy photography and stamping.

HI all! I am Holly. I am proud to have made this Guest design team spot. I have been scrapping for 5 years.. The addiction was instant. How could it not be? I loved taking pictures and collecting frames before I started. So when I heard about scrapbooking I headed straight for the door to get myself paper and those deco scissors!

By being a Guest Designer I hope to motivate and inspire all of you to try something new! It is such an honor to know that I have taught someone to try something they wouldnt have thought to try!

Welcome to our Septmeber Guest Designers!

We look forward to seeing your creations later this month!

 

Meet Christa…..

scrapbook233-2.jpg

Hi, I am Christa. I’m a 31 yr old, SAHM to 2 girls and am expecting in February! I’ve been married 7 1/2 years! I was first introduced to scrapbooking by a neighbor. She had one of those home parties and it was then that I fell in love with the idea of scrapbooking! Once I found that scrapbooking was on the internet that was it for me!! I’m hooked. Scrapbooking allows an outlet for me to be creative and stay sane! I love that my husband built me an area in our office just for my scrap supplies. It consumes the whole room, but he supports my addiction! I love the fact that scrapbooking allows me to preserve my family’s moments, good or bad. I’m honored to be a part of SNS for the month of September. There are lots of inspirational scrappers on here. I hope that I can be one of those for you too!

 

Meet Sylvia….

August Guest Designers

A huge thanks to the talented Guest Designers for September! (sorry I am late posting these – between kits and scrapfest, I ran out of time! For some reason these 2 monsters at my house think I am thier mommy, they keep calling me this each day and I am unsure why? Asking for things and such. LMAO).

 Meet Athene……

176434255046dca67a9ec58.jpg

I have been scrapbooking for 14 years and making cards for at least 15 years.  I started out pretty much the same way as everyone else back then…with Creative Memories…which was the only show in town.  I was hooked.  I love to create with paper and have always loved cutting and pasting! 

As time went on, I was introduced to so many wonderful products that I just had to try them all and found my niche in a wonderful creative outlet.  I met some people through my sister who opened up the world of internet scrapbook sites.  I became a guest designer on ScrapthatMoment.com then a designer. The owner of the website unexpectedly had to close the site and I began shopping for another group of lovely ladies to virtual scrap with and was thrilled when I stumbled onto SavvynSassy

I have found a lovely home to share my creativity and just love chatting with everyone on SnS.  I was honored with the challenge of being August guest designer and just love working with the ribbon kits and other products that SnS sells in their store.  The color combinations are inspirational!!! 

I just love my projects with the August Savvy kit.  The color combinations were fabulous and I had to stretch myself with the orange ribbon which is usually not a color I normally use but I loved the results in my “Mr. Attitude” layout and the “Summer Cards”.  I used the leftover ribbons on a mint tin to make a precious paperclip holder for my daughter’s desk. the possibilities are endless with coordinated ribbons from SavvynSassy.com!

July Guest Designers

 

A huge thanks to our July Guest Designers Amnanda and Kelly. They did a fantastic job with thier kits!

Kelly

Hi, my name is Kelly Birrell and I’m a ribbon addict!  I’m from a small town in southern Indiana, married to a wonderful guy, and Momma to 3 wild and crazy girly girls.  I’ve been scrapping for almost 8 years, ribbon addict for about 2 years now.  I’m referred to as the Ribbon Queen (and Chipboard Queen, but that’s a whole other obsession we won’t go into!) by my scrappy friends.  I absolutely love creating and try and scrap something at least everyday!  I’m so excited to have been chosen as Guest DT’er for this wonderful ribbon club!  Here are a few of the things I created with my kit!

 Amanda    

Hello! My name is Amanda and I live in Ontario, Canada with my hubby of almost three years and our wonderful one-year-old son. They are the subject of a lot of my layouts. I have been scrapbooking for almost ten years and stamping for 3 years. I love this hobby! It’s so addicting! But it’s a good addiction! I find it invigorating when I create new projects with all the great products available to us! I was on a design team for LSS for a short time and I teach classes on a regular basis. I have had some of my work published on a scrapbooking website! I also have my own scrapbook design business. You can check out my website at www.inascrap.com. I’ve turned my hobby that I love into a “job” that I love!! 

I got hooked on scrapbooking I think because I love to take pictures and I LOVE being creative. I have always had very graphic school projects and loved cutting pictures out and decorating my binders and cover pages…I should have gone to university for graphic design or something of that nature…I don’t know why I love it so much…When I get passionate about something, I like to jump in with both feet. I have always dabbled in various “fad” crafts…my parents’ entire house had hodge-podged items all over at one point! I did folk art painting too; I’ve decorated cakes (and still do!). But for some reason, scrapbooking stuck. I love scrapbooking and I have, of course, jumped in with both feet again into stamping as well. It’s amazing how your style changes over even a year though. I already want to re-do my wedding albums and I have only been married for (almost) three years ago! It’s so rudimentary in my opinion but I guess it just shows how you grow over the years.

I’m truly honoured to be chosen as a guest designer for July. I loved working with such great products. I’ve been in the company of some great designers and a lot of talent.
