Sugar Rush anyone?

I wanted to share a fun project that I have been working on with my daughter Abby. These cute little doughnuts were inspired by my friend Keely!  She, and her daughter, made them for Valentine treats earlier this year.  Abby and I chose to use Sea Glass (because who doesn't love Sea Glass right?) with Juniper sprinkles.  What fun!  

The doughnuts were super simple to make!  You can too by following these simple steps:

1.  Using the Sugar Rush Thin Cuts, cut out the doughnut base (2 for each doughnut) and a scalloped topping from White Daisy cardstock.
2.  Stamp the doughnut bases with Champagne Exclusive Ink.
3.  Choose the doughnut topping and stamp with Sea Glass Exclusive Ink onto the scalloped circle.
4.  For the doughnut with the sprinkles, add the sprinkles stamp with Juniper Exclusive Ink.
5.  Allow ink to dry for a few minutes.
6.  Using 3-d foam tape, adhere the doughnut top to the doughnut base.
7.  Use the Shimmer Brush to add shimmer to the sprinkles as well as the "white icing" that shows through.
8.  Adhere a mint to the bottom doughnut on the non-stamped side with a strong adhesive.  
9.  Adhere the top doughnut to the top of the mint creating a "sandwich".
10.  If desired, cut and stamp, a sentiment and add to the doughnut.

(1385) White Daisy Cardstock
(Z2813) Sea Glass Exclusive Ink Pad
(Z2865) Juniper Exclusive Ink Pad
(Z2874) Champagne Exclusive Ink Pad
(Z3300) Sugar Rush Cardmaking Thin Cut Bundle

Some Kind of Wonderful Cards

Back in January, I attended a Team Builders event with Close to My Heart in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The Home Office designed these 8 fabulous cards for us to create, and then to use with our teams.  I love how they paired the Some Kind of Wonderful papers and compliments with the stamps to create the very cute cards.  I wanted to share these cards (the cards in on the left in each picture) with my customers who I knew would love the cards, but the sentiments didn't quite fit their needs.  I created the same cards, a few slightly altered, and added new sentiments to come up with a set of cards I could share with my customers.  I am delighted with how they turned out!  For those who would like to create these cards for themselves, I have listed all of the supplies at the bottom of this post or you are welcome to pick them up from my card buffet at my next card class or crop!

Love Your Selfie!

Close To My Heart has a colorful Picture My Life collection called Love Your Selfie!  The color combination, and the bold patterns have enticed me from it's introduction, and I have couldn't resist the urge to create with them anymore. Typically, the Picture My Life cards are incorporated in pocket style scrapbooking: they include twenty 4" x 6" and thirty-six 3" x 4" cards.  The cards have the same design on both side: one side features the design vertically and the other side features the same design horizontally.   As with our other scrapbooking products, these are acid-free, lignin-free and buffered.   Typically, the cards are incorporated in pocket style scrapbooking, but you know me...I always have to look outside the box when creating!

I took one complete set of the Picture My Life Cards, and created five 2 page layouts.  I then created 9 handmade cards.  After these projects, this left a total of 6 cards left for additional journaling, lunch box notes etc.  I was pretty impressed with myself and my creation!

 This is a sampling of the Love Your Selfie (Z3194) cards that I created with.  They can be purchased on my website by clicking here.

Layout one:  Love Life

Layout two:  Dream Big

Layout three:  Smile

Layout four: Laugh Out Loud

Layout Five:  Believe In Your Selfie

Card Collection

I will be teaching this Love Your Selfie Workshop on Saturday, February 4th from 1-4PM at the Timberville Church of the Brethren.  The class is $50 for all 5 layouts, and you will receive the 9 bonus cards as well as 6 extra PML cards that can be used for additional projects.  OR, if you prefer, you may pick and choose the layouts that fit your needs the most for $10 each.  To register, e-mail me at: inallsassiness@gmail.com.

If you are unable to attend the class, both would like to purchase the class kits, you may do so by clicking here and purchasing in my shop.  If you would like to purchase just the digital layout files, and purchase the supplies yourself, that is also an option.  You may also do so in my In All Sassiness Shop.

Finishing up the 12 days of a sassy Christmas specials...

Wow!  What a whirlwind of a weekend!  I was quite under the weather yesterday so today I have an edit to the 10th day's wording, yesterday's special (day 11) and the final special for today (12).  So grab your sleigh and hand on for the ride!

First, on Saturday's special, I missed including the cardstock packs that compliment each of the My Reflections so I am extending that special.  This is a new offering this year and they are wonderful.  Each Paper collection has a cardstock pack that includes cardstock that coordinated with the patterned paper.  These packs mirror the price of the My Reflections Paper packs and retail for $9.95 each.  The packs include 3 sheets each of 4 key colors that are in the paper packs.


So here is the revised special:
So with the newly written lyrics, you guessed correctly!  Today, on the 10th day of a Sassy Scrapbooking Christmas, your consultant offered you, My Reflection Paper packs, and their complimenting cardstock packs at buy 3 get 1 free! Certainly, there is no better time for this special, because when December comes to a close, the current My Reflections Paper Packs, and their cardstock complimenting packs, will all expire.  So sad I know, but wait until you see the papers that they are replaced with!!!!  SWEET!!!  


On the 11th day of a Sassy Christmas, my consultant offered me: our re-inkers and newly designed ink pads buy 2 get 1 free!  Update your collection with these magnetic, non-swivel ink pads!  No more frustrations with this user friendly design!  I love them!!



Oh the final day of a sassy scrapbooking Christmas, my consultant offered me embellishments buy 3 get 1 free!  These may be Shimmer Trim, ribbons, compliments, or bling.  You choose the mix!



These final specials are repeatable for as many times as you desire and all three of these specials are available until 10PM on Tuesday, December 13th eastern time.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...but the smell of paper is delightful!

"Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the smell of new paper is delightful..." Ok, so maybe I am pushing it a little!  But, admit it....I know I am not the only one who loves the smell of a new package of Close To My Heart paper.  I believe I was in denial for a little while thinking I had lost it, but know that smelling the paper is the first thing many of my paper crafting friends so when they get a new pack of paper as well!

So with the newly written lyrics, you guessed correctly!  Today, on the 10th day of a Sassy Scrapbooking Christmas, your consultant offered you, My Reflection Paper packs at buy 3 get 1 free! Certainly, there is no better time for this special, because when December comes to a close, the current My Reflections Paper Packs will all expire.  So sad I know, but wait until you see the papers that they are replaced with!!!!  SWEET!!!  

The special is repeatable for as many times as you desire!
