Happy Times Blog Hop

Today's blog post is for a blog hop I am participating in using our National Scrapbook Month specialty paper pack, Happy Times.  If you are coming from Tonya Whitehurst's blog, you are in the right place.  Continue reading and then you will be directed at the bottom of the page for where to hop to see another example of great artwork created by my team members.

I used the pretty floral paper and cut it on a diagonal, then accordian folded it at the 1/2", then 1/4".  I used the resist technique by using my watercolor paints over one of the new watercolor Picture My Life cards.  I rounded it all out with cardstock and a flower fromt he Happy Times stamp set.  If you love this paper pack as much as I do, go here to order today.  Hurry because it is only available in May while supplies last.

If you started hopping with Melissa Robinson's blog, then you are at the end of the hop.  If not, click HERE to get back to the beginning.

Pau Hana Day Crops in Mansfield!

Pau Hana means "finished work". I thought that could be an appropriate name for a retreat, whether it is because we are celebrating with being off work for the summer or celebrating that we WILL get lot's of UFO's finished this weekend, come join me for a guarenteed fun crop.  Although the overnight retreat spots are filled, there is still an opportunity to come spend the days with us to crop, play, and relax.  The days available are from June 23 - 27.  You can come for one or for all 5 days.  If you sign up and prepay for all 5 days, you will get a $15 discount, that's just $75 for 5 days of cropping!  Just go over to my events page on Sassy's Creations Facebook page to sign up and see all the details.  Space is limited so don't wait too long to sign up!

CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Let’s Interact

Melissa Sanchez-Robinson's photo.

If you are coming from Wendy Kessler's Blog you are in the right place.

What a fun challenge this Blog Hop is this month. I have made explosion cards before but I needed a special card for a special kiddo from school so I made this slider type of card.  Let me explain.  We have a great kid that is at the school I work at and I always have a big cup from Lambert's Cafe with me.  He asked me one day what the guy on it was throwing.  I told him it was rolls, that there is this restaurant in Missouri that is the Home of Throwed Rolls.  They will actually throw rolls from across the restaurant to you.  He became fascinated with this.  So, one day, my cousin had posted some videos of her kids catching rolls there.  I showed my friend Q and he thought they needed to change the 4th grade field trip from the Texas Capital to Lambert's Cafe.  So, since he will be leaving Erma Nash this year, I wanted to get him his own cup to hopefully remember me by because I will most definitely remember my little Gamer Buddy!  He's going to be missed by all of us!  I used some scraps from the Urban Paper Pack and the new stamp set "Smarty Pants Occasions" along with my watercolor pencils and the new Waterbrush Medium Point for blending.

I am so lucky to work in an elementary school and get to have millions of smiles from great kids like Q.  I hope you all are as blessed to be touched by the innocence of children because there is nothing as wonderful!

Now hop on over to Kirsten Jade's Blog to continue the hop!

Mistakes are Opportunities for Embellishments!

First off today, I want to give a shout out to Sara.  Sara hosted a great class for her friends last night and we all went away with learning something new.  And, just in case Tara is checking up on me, I am updating this blog today just for her.

Last night we had some first time stampers.  They learned the hard way not to rock your stamp block and to double check for the ink residue before you stamp.  Miranda ended up with a black line going across the middle of her card.  But, being the creative force that she is, she came up with a great solution that gave the card a whole different vibe.  I love it and I'm going to scraplift it, (she gave me her permission).

See the heartbeat between the two?  And, there was ink smudged that we covered up with beautiful glitter hearts from our Fundamental Assortsment pack.  Everything is better with bling!

If you would like to host a class for you and some of your friends, please contact me.  My May is full and I only have 2 dates left in June so you better grab those dates quick!  the summer will be gone before we know it!

National Scrapbook Month Makes for Happy Times!

Guess what?  May is National Scrapbook Month.  I don't know about you but with me that means more time with my scrappin sisters and lots of opportunities to spend money on scrapping supplies.  My husband hates May for that reason - LOL!  Well, I want to let you all know about a special crop I have planned for May 22 from 12 - 5pm.  You can go here to see all the details of the crop.

Oh and do you see the pretty picture above?  I used a special paper pack to create those cards.  Here's a couple of close ups:

Close To My Heart has released the Happy Times Paper Pack and a Happy Times Stamp set that will only be available in the month of May while supplies last.  Speaking from experience, these paper packs and stamp sets go very fast so hurry up and either secure your space now for the crop or order yours starting May 1st on my website.
