Cassie's Creations!

So earlier today (well its yesterday now he hee I am such a night owl)
I introduced to you our August Guest designers and I really wanted to feature each of them individually with their creations!
So here we Have Cassie! Who will actually be joining our Sassy Seven
For this release She worked with a few different images but I have to say by far my fav image, as well as my fav creations of hers are using the True Love's Kiss image
So first off I am a sucker for fairytales! I love them! WHich is mostly the reason I decided to do a whole release based around some of my fav fairytales!
And with this image Cassie gave us 3 of my favs! 1st here this completely reminds me of Belle and the prince once he is changed back to human form and I know it is hard to see but she used some gold shimmers on the bustled are of the dress it truely is stunning!
So if that was Belle I would have to say this is Aurora and Prince Philip from Sleeping Beauty
And of course Cinderella and her Prince Charming! What I love most about this isn't the bling or the beautiful coloring, it's that it is a Scrapbook Layout! I think sometimes we get so caught up in stamping and card making we forget about those scrapbooks and that these images can most deffinately be used in them to compliment your photos. I personally started as a scrapbooker and well i had a fairytale wedding that i am still amidst scrapping so I think I know a few images I will be adding to my book he hee so thank you so much Cassie for inspiring me for my own albums!

Next up she Used our Precious Pirate image. I know Pirates aren;t you rtraditional fairytale characters (accept maybe captain hook from peter pan but more recently I think we have all fallen in love with the Pirates of the Carribean trilogy and in my mind it hits the definition of a fairytale in every aspect So I decided we needed a Pirate Princess and here she is atop her "thrown" of sorts he hee
Cassie did a wonderful jobshe used shimmers and liquid pearls to accent her image and really make it sparkle. that is deffinately one Sassy Pirate!

and another using the same image she used some clear accents on teh boots that gives em some shine and also used shimmers on the blouse and liquid pearls again on the coins. but it is polished off with the use of one of the sentiments from our sentiment set!
Next Up she also used our Princess of the Orient! I absolutely love how she paper pieced the Kimono with that wonderful patterned paper and topped it off with the symbols for Peace
These next 2 speak for themselves no sentiments needed they are just serene and beautiful!

So that completes our introduction to Cassie and her works of art! but we will have much much more to see from her in the very near future. now I think it is time for me to head to bed lol but 1st thing tomorrow I have Ellen and Jana's creations to show off to you so I hope you will be around for them as well. and be sure to show some love for all these wonderful ladies and all the hard work they put in making these wonderful creations!!!

August Guest Designers

Today I wanted to introduce to you some very special ladies.
Our August Guest Designers!!!
August is a Big month for us at Sassy Studio Designs we have 2 HUGE releases planned so we thought what a perfect time it would be to bring in a few guest designers.
So today I have the pleasure of introducing to you

Hey! I’m Jana, a proud US Coast Guard wife and mom to 3 amazing kids. We are currently stationed in Kodiak, Alaska. This has been the best experience. I am a craftaholic and very passionate about paper crafts. I started scrapbooking about 11 years ago and was introduced to stamping about 7 years ago. I never looked back. My husband is super supportive of my addiction. I have a great space to create in. I am thrilled with digital stamps because then I don’t have to wait for shipping to Alaska I am an “instant gratification” kind of gal. *wink* I also enjoy machine embroidery, sewing, making hair bows, photography and cooking. I love the outdoors and we spend a lot of time fishing and hiking. It is such a pleasure to have been chosen to be a Sassy Studio Guest Designer. Hopefully I can offer up some inspiration.
My name is Ellen but I have been called "Tink" almost forever!I am Married to "MY knight in shinning armor"I have 3 grown kids and have started all over again with Emmy, she is 4 now..And Sabrina, she is 13..I have been Stamping and Scrapbooking for over 10 years now and I will also alter anything that can't run away!!I am so very Honored to be a Guest Designer for SSD, I truly LOVE all the images and they are so much fun to create with..
Now before I get to Cassies Bio I have a little announcement. Unfortunately Jen has to leave us after August 1st because of so many big and wonderful things going on in her life. Though we wish Jen teh absolute best in her future endevours We needed another siter to join the sassy seven in her place, and Cassie has so graciously agreed to take on the rest of Jen's term! So cassie isn;t just an August guest Designer she is a new member of the Sassy Seven!!! SO give her a great big welcome!
Hi ya'll. My name is Cassie and I just turned 31. I am blessed to be married to a wonderful husband and have 2 handsome little boys. Not only am I a wife, but I also teach 9th graders at our local high school. I've been stamping and crafting for eight years, but I have only really gotten into it in the last three years. For the last two years I have really started getting into the digital side of crafting and have found that I really like to manipulate the images. I think the biggest compliment I have gotten so far is from my husband when he tells me he saw something and thought about how I could recreate it even better. True or not it makes me feel good :)
So thanks for stopping in and meeting these great ladies joining us at SSD and keep an eye out today I will be showing off more previews, as well as some of our guest designer creations!!!

Sassy Cassie Saturday!

I have to tell you the truth when I drew her I loved her but with the themes we had set for of next few releases she just did not fit. I didnt think I was ever going to release her and it was by chance last minute that I thought about it. I had shown her as a sketch as a sneak preview and well that just would not have been nice at all if I didnt release her so I finshed her up last minute and added her on to out July 9th release and She is our #1 seller she is everyone's fav! SO I have to say she was the best last minute afterthought I ever had he hee he
So of course since she is our top seller that means people are creating with her! and of course I HAD to show of some of the great creations I have been seeing!!!
So first up I have 2 creations by Cassie!
and they are just stunning dont you think?!?! The sparkles on the shirts the color selections the coloring I mean just beautiful! It's no wonder I had to share them with you.

Next up another creation by Cindy Close! and it is Absolutely Fabulous!
Well I am still away anjoying a romantic weekend camoning with my hubby but I'll be back soon! I can't wait to see what everyone was up to this weekend while I was away
