Hi there. Today we have a new challenge for you at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge. This time, we challenge you to create a TAG using a digi image (of course!). Well the timing of this one worked out perfect for me. Last weekend we made teacher gifts, and I just need to add a tag to them. So...I did some "mass producing" using the adorable Cocoa's Stocking Digi.
Wow that picture makes it look like I made ton of There are really only 11. I colored the digi images with watercolor crayons. There are 3 different "styles". I trimmed them down, and layered onto a piece of PP from Echo Park. I added some ribbon (which by the way I, and hand wrote the To: and From:. This weekend I will have my DDs fill in the names.

Tea Time

Hi there. Today we have a new challenge for you at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog. Our challenge this time around is "Tea for Two". We challenge you to use a digi image to create a tea themed project. Here is mine. I started with the adorable Cocoa mouse and his tea cup. I colored with watercolor crayons, and trimmed him down. Then I began my layering. The papers I used are all from one of the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps kits of the month. These kits are great...not only do you get a stamp set, ribbons, papers, and embellishments, but also IDEAS!!!! The LO of my card is also one of the LOs from the July 2011 KOTM. They really are a great deal, and a great way to get ideas.

Now head on over to the SNSSDC Blog, and see what the rest of the DT gals have created for your inspiration, then play along!

Creative Belli - Winter/Christmas

Hi there. Soooo sorry for my lack of posts, and my late post today. I have had a lot going on, as most of us do this time of year. Plus to add to it, I have been subbing at my DDs' school this week. Sooo...nothing is getting And like most of us, I have a lot going on in my personal life right now. Well, today is Wednesday, so we have a new challenge for you at the Creative Belli Challenge. Our challenge this time around is winter or Christmas. Here is what I came up with. I started by stamping this beautiful Pointsetta Flower stamp from Biblical Impressions. This stamp is actually the featured stamp this month for Biblical Impressions Stamps. Check out the details HERE on what you can do with this stamp. For mine, I stamped it and colored with watercolor crayons. I did some paper piecing on the leaves. I layered onto some PP from my stash (my "old" embellishment for the Belli Challenge), and layered that onto the red background PP. I used a rub-on for my sentiment, and added some little red gems to the corners. Last, I added some stickles to the center.

Head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge and see what the rest of the DT ladies have created. Then play along and link up your project for us to see!

SNSSDC - Gifts

Hi there. Today we have a new challenge for you at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi challenge. Our challenge this time is to create a gift for someone using a digi image on it. I started with this adorable little Rhubarb Stocking digi from SNSS. I printed him out and colored with colored pencils. I added some smootch to the "white" parts of the stocking. Then I fussy cut him down. Next, I layered him onto the PP that I used to make this......ornament gift! My in-laws needed an ornament with a photo of my youngest DD, so I thought this would be perfect! I started with an acrylic "coaster" from Maya Road. I cut the PP from Nikki Sivils to fit. I wanted the photo to stay protected over the years, so I put the acrylic piece over the paper. The 2011 is stickers. Last, I added some ribbon to be the "hook". Oh yeah...and when I showed my DD the ornament of her, she felt the need to do this... ...and I LOVE IT!!!!! She wanted grandma and grandpa to know it was from Now...head on over to the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Blog and see what other gifts the DT gals have created. Then play along with us! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
