DT Call and Contest

SavvynSassy ribbons is having a DT call and contest.  Check out the forums for more details at

It’s an awesome team to work with and we have a lot of fun!!

I created this layout for one of the great challenges at our online crop at Monica challenged us to scrap the oldest Christmas photo we could find, and I chose this sweet one from 1959 of my mom and her little sister in the snow.

I was hoping to mimic the snow on branches idea from the photo and the teal lace from this month’s kit was perfect! I added some white lace layered on top from the Oct. SnS lace kit and love the way it turned out.

Supplies: Cardstock-Hobby Lobby; Papers-Daisy D’s; DistressInk – Tea Dye; Junkitz flowers; various buttons; acrylic paint and glitter glue (on the flower); Zig writer pen; and SavvynSassy lace

Coming soon…

Starting soon, be on the lookout for some holiday projects and tutorials.  I’m on vacation and away from my scrapping supplies, but filled with ideas!

These are my items for Iron Chef round four.  We were to showcase transparencies (I made my own), stitching, and cardstock only (no patterned paper).

Layout: “New”

Made my own transparencies with staz-on ink.  Lots and LOTS of distressing.  🙂

Supplies: CS-Crate, Hollo’s; ribbon-SavvynSassy; Stamps-Purple Onion and Autumn Leaves; Staz-On white ink; DMC floss; various buttons

Card–it was nearly impossible to get a picture of this, with all the glare, but hopefully you get the idea.

Just a fun layout of Autumn made with the fabulous Daisy D’s Autumn collection and some savvy and sassy trims.  🙂 

I’ve just opened a new Etsy shop and I’ve started uploading items to sell.  Check it out at  🙂

 I’ve uploaded 4 of my Cherish mini-book kits.  When I’ve sold them before, they’ve gone super fast, so you might want to get there soon.  I don’t think I’ll be making more of these, so when they’re gone, well, you know. 

I have more things just waiting to be photographed and uploaded, so keep on the lookout.
