Thinking of You card kit

This morning I wanted to share my adaptation of the the Thinking of You card kit featuring the True Love paper suite.  I fell in love with this kit at first sight, but it wasn't until I actually worked with the stamp set, the color combinations and the papers that I truly fell in love even deeper! So deep, in fact, that I couldn't just create the two cards that CTMH designed but I had to continue to make four additional designs.  

I love the sentiment "it's okay to not be okay" - that reasoning is something that took me awhile to cope with and deal with when I was recently going thru Leukemia.  Sometimes we need time to cope and to deal with whatever is going on in our lives and I love that CTMH gets that.  

One of the awesome things about this stamp set is that the two sentiments are similar in size and shape so they can be interchanged on any of the cards.  Both fit inside the wreath which means you can use the sentiment that you like the best on your cards.

These cards use the waterbrush to color in the wreath and the large flowers.  This is a simple technique.  To create, you squeeze the center of the exclusive ink pads to transfer ink to the lid.  Next use the waterbrush to pick up the color from the lid and then color in the image.  It is so much easier than coloring with markers or watercolor pencils but gives that beautiful watercolor effect.

The top to cards, in the picture below, are the ones designed by CTMH and are in the Thinking of You Card Kit.  The lower two are ones that I designed for my card class that meets on Friday morning at 9:30am.  The class is $10 and we will create two each of the 4 designs.  All of the pieces are pre-cut for you.  Class will take place at the Hill's in Broadway.  The class is open to the public.  To register, e-mail me at:

In addition to the above two cards, I also designed a supplement to my card class of two additional cards.  The supplement will include 4 cards - 2 each of 2 designs.  You can watercolor these in class and do the rest of the creating at home.

For those who can't make it to class, this is the Thinking of You card kit that I used in creating the cards.  It is available to purchase on my website at:

1 – exclusive workshop stamp set (B-size)

To Infinity and Beyond! Captured on paper.

With the release of the new Toy Story 4 movie, I couldn't help get into the Toy spirit and create this fun layout designed by Ginni Candelaria.  There are lots of mats for photos, and small photos, so I decided to create a few quote boxes from the movies to fill some of these mats - if you have lots of photos you could easily delete these quotes or just use one or two.  For my layout, I wanted to document the Buzz Lightyear right at the Magical Kingdom but when I looked at our photos from our photo pass, the kids were really far away from each other in the photos.  To make this work for what I had planned with my layout, I printed the photos as 5" x 7"s and then cut each child's photo to 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" which worked perfect!  The colors of the layout worked perfectly with the colors in the ride!  Ginni did a fantastic job!

One of the things that I think really made this layout "pop" is that all of the character pieces, and mats, are dauber ink distressed with the corresponding colors.  I wish you could see these accents in person as the camera didn't highlight them as well as I would have liked.

This layout kit is available in my In All Sassiness Designs shop for a limited time as I only have a few left and the background paper is retired so I can't create more kits.  So if you love the layout, fly, don't run, over to my shop and grab yours today!

For a larger view of the layout, simply click on the photograph and it will open in a larger window.

Flamingo shaker cards

What better representation of summer that flamingos?  Right?  We taught these fun shaker cards at the Chantilly Scrapbook Expo and all those who created them walked away with a little bit more happy in their steps!  Any why wouldn't you?  The flamingos are just so stinkin' cute!

The card on the left was tweaked from a card that my up-line Tina Sutton created (she is a Floridian 1000%) and I designed the one on the left.  I love how there is just so much flexibility with the flamingo stamp.  You can stamp her on colored paper (as seen on the left) or stamp her on White Daisy (as seen on the right) and color her in with markers, watercolors, pencils or Shimmer Brushes! Each creates a different effect!
