Sassy Studio Release Day

LiveJournal Tags: ,




Good morning, hope all is well with you.  I’m still sick, but I can’t stand being in bed anymore.  Today is release day for Sassy Studio Designs.  Here are 2 of the images being released.  I have another one in the works and will be adding it later.  The first one is Strawberry Daiquiri, isn’t she adorable!!!!  She could be used for so many things.  The second one is The Stroke of Midnight, and I LOVE this one.  This can be used in soooo many ways.  I paired it with a saying from the fairy tale collection.  Now, for the fun stuff.  We are having a blog hop, with a game to play.  Make sure you visit everyone along the way and leave a comment.  The twist or game is you have to find the hidden elf.  Whoever follows these rules and emails Jacquie at will be entered to win 3 SSD images of their choice.  Next up, we will be opening the party blog at 12 noon PST.  There you will find the limited edition blinkie, and maybe a surprise!!!   For some reason I can’t get to the party blog at the moment, but you can find a link on the SSD blog.  So make sure you visit the sassy seven to see their wonderful creations.







The design team will be chatting on the SSD party blog from 4-6 pm PST, so make sure you join us for the fun. Have a wonderful day.

ETA-I’ve added the last card made with the Martini Pinup Girl-she was so much to work with!

The Princess and the Frog


Good afternoon, hope all is well with you.  I’m feeling much better, thank you for all the well wishes.  Evidently it wasn’t the flu, just some bug.  Sassy Studio Designs has a bonus challenge for you this week.   Lindsay is a HUGE Disney fan, and in fact did a fairy tale release a couple of months ago.  Her challenge for you is to make something inspired by the movie The Princess and the Frog.  You have until Dec. 11 at midnight PST.  And the prize is amazing-9, yes I said 9 images from the fairy tale release.

So, for this fun challenge I used her princess and frog image, along with the frog-which by the way is a freebie on the SSD blog.  I also decided to do an easel card.  I’ve never done one before, it was very easy, although I did mess up my score lines a bit, so it doesn’t quite stand up like it should.   Oh well, it was fun, here is a close up of the front of it:

Good afternoon, hope all is well with you.  I have some ATC’s to share with you today.  I actually made these a few weeks ago, just haven’t posted them.  This first one is for the 50’s group.  The image is 50’s sweetheart from The Greeting Farm


This next one was for the Asian group.  The image is Geisha Anya from The Greeting Farm.  I happened to get this image while it was a digi, so it was easily resized.


This one also uses a digi image from The Greeting Farm, it’s Timmy Stocking-isn’t he sooooo cute!!!


This was for the vintage category,and I’m so sorry, I don’t know where I got the image.  But it is a vintage ad for Warner’s.


And this one was for the Rock ‘n Roll category.  As soon as I saw this category I knew I had to use this image.  This is Rockin’ Roxie from Sassy Studio Designs.  Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

The Charater Cafe' Blog Hop

Good morning, hope all is well with you. Today is release day for The Character Cafe'. Kendra and Kelly have come up with the cutest designs this month for you. So, I had this brilliant idea to make a gift bag with the image that I was assigned. And wouldn't you know it that I saw the same idea on a fellow DT members blog. Well, like I told her "Great Minds". So this time around I was given Pax the Penguin to work with. Isn't he adorable?! I just thought a gift bag would be so cute, and this is what I came up with.

The deets for this blog hop are as follows-
You must comment on every one's blog in order to qualify for the Grand Prize of all of the new releases.
Become a follower if your not already.
The code for 40% off until Friday Nov. 13 at noon is "remember"

Rockin' Roxie-Rockin' the Pink Polka Dot Guitar!

Good morning, hope all is well with you. I've almost got my blog put back together, just one more list-yay! Today is challenge day over at Sassy Studio Designs, and the challenge for you today is: Paper Piecing! As many of you know I tried this for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I'm one of those people that always thinks things are harder than they really are. Now that I've done it, I LOVE it, and can't wait to see what else I can do. So when I saw this challenge I was very excited, and then scared again. But when I finally decided on my image, I was excited again, I knew exactly what I wanted. She just screamed out to me that she needed a pink polka dot guitar!!! I almost did her hair, but thought that was too much-heehee! So make sure you play along. The winner gets 2 SSD images, how can you not play, you know you want those images-lol! The sketch I used was from The Sweet Stop. Have a wonderful day, and have fun creating!
