What a great weekend I spent with my fellow team members of Heartfelt Sentiments.  We attended a Product Launch in Houston and got to play with some of the new things coming out May 1st and we had time to connect and deepen our friendships.  I must say I really love hanging out with these great ladies!  And did I say, LAUGH OUT LOUD?  'Cause we did.

My Favorite CTMH Stamp Set - Blog Hop

This month is Stampaganza...

If you are coming from Melissa Robinson's Blog you are on the right track.

I have accepted my first blog hop challenge with the Heartfelt Sentiments Team and it is to showcase my favorite stamp set.  I am head over heels in love with all the possibilities of the SOTM set, Sunshine Birdies.  Here's one of the cards I created using the cute butterflies and birds:

I got the inspiration from Nancy Ball for the random stamping of the birds on white background and then just adding splashes of colors with the CTMH Watercolor pencils.  I used some B&T from the Penelope paper pack along with a zip strip.  The sentiment is from stamp set C1619, So Many Smiles Occasions.  

If you love this stamp, you can get it for just $5.00 with a qualifying order, this month only.  And, with the Stampaganza going on, you can really rake in the stamp sets for cheep, cheep this month (get the pun?).

Now head on over toKatyTaylor's Blog to see what she has to share with you.

Happy Birthday Sketch Challenge

Well, today is my baby boy's 18th birthday.  Happy Birthday Anthony, you have given me so much joy and happiness.

So, in honor of those special boys in our lives, I am posting a card sketch challenge.  In doing this challenge myself, I realized how much I love using our How-To books because they are so easy to follow and enable me to create quickly.  Here is the sketch I used from our Make It from Your Heart Volume 2 idea book.  

Here is the card I created for Anthony:

I used the Urban Paper Pack and Accessories.  The stamp sets I used were Cricut Artiste Collection Birthday for the cupcake & Jennifer's Hand for the letters.

Go ahead and try this sketch challenge and post your finished projects here. If you haven't used the How-To sketches before I'm sure you will love it.

Scrapbooking: Where Do I Start?

Have you every thought about scrapbooking, went to the store and thought "Oh my!  Where do I begin????"  Well, my suggestion is to begin with a quality album.  You are going to want something that will last for generations.  Close To My Heart has just the right ablum to fit your needs.  We offer two types, the D-Ring or the Post-bound.  This is a matter of preference but my preference is the D-Ring because then I can easily move my pages around or insert in the middle of my album at any time.  Watch this Corporate video to see the features of both styles.  Then, go HERE to order your favorite album.

March Card Buffet Featuring the Stamp of the Month

Just want to share the cute cards I made over the weekend using our March SOTM, Sunshine Birdies.  What I love about this set is not only the cutest birds ever,  but the sentiment "You Are My Sunshine".  When my kids were babies, I would sing this to them as I rocked them.  I was really suprised about a month or two ago when my daughter, who is 15 now and into alternative music, asked if she could download Johnny Cash's song, "You Are My Sunsine".  Do you think that stuck with her and the familiarity of it pulled at her heartstrings?  I'd like to think so.

If you'd like to come to the card buffet on March 22nd to play with this stamp set, go HERE to sign up for the event.  Since I just got this website up and running, I will extend the payment due date to March 20th.

Welcome to Sassy's Creations, a place for papercrafting inspiration!  

Today I am going live with my new and improved blog.  I had a blog on Word Press but it was difficult to navigate so with the help of my great friend and business mentor, Melissa Robinson, we have created this new space. Thanks Melissa, your the best!

This is a space I hope to share my gifts of love, humor, and enthusiasm for creativity to inspire YOU to preserve and share your memories.  

Just a little bit about me, I am married with two children.  I have lived a life full of crafting from embroidery, knitting, sewing, coloring, to card making, but my favorite by far is scrapbooking.  When I scrapbook, I relive the moments and love that is in my life and I want to be able to pass that on to to my kids.  As a Close To My Heart Consultant I also get to share this love of crafting with other great people that have become friends!

What you can expect to see on this website will be regular post of art that I am creating, technique videos, maybe an ocassional papercrafting comic, and also ideas that you can try. And, I will always keep you up-to-date on the latest news from Close To My Heart.   I hope to post a couple of times a week so go to the bottom right of this page and either subscribe or follow by email to be advised of new posts.
