Simply Sassy Fun Blog Hop!!!

Hello all and welcome to the Simply Sassy for Sugar Nellie 'Just for Fun' Blog Hop! Maria has asked us to put together a little hop for you all showing off some of the older Sassy's and we all thought that was a fantastic idea. So, if you've arrived here from Kellie's blog you're on the right track. I am a little behind here so if you've had to come back I do apologize, but I hope you find it woth it. So, without further delay, here's what I've come up with...


You can't really tell from this view, but untying that ribbon opens up a whole slew of suprises!! I've used my all time favorite Sassy 'Fairy Tale' available at Funky Kits here. I've also left her a little plain and simple due to the weight(I mean actual weight of the things inside).


The is technically page two(seems I forgot to take a pic of page 1 and now that they're all uploaded it's too late), but page one of the fun stuff and this is a large matchbook type coloring book. There are 8 stamped images on perforated paper and the matchbook is stuck on with glue dots so the reciepient can take it off and to wherever she would like. The pages are also perforated so they can be easily torn out.


Next page of fun stuff is some crayons, a tape runner, and a few flower s all attached with glue dots so they are also removeable. So, what do you think come next??


Did you guess it? There are 3 small pre folded cards and envelopes, some bling and pearls, and it's all wrapped up in some twine she can also use!


Here it is, all laid out. I left the coloring book cover blank so the reciepient could personalize it herself, but if done for a younger child I would go ahead and do it.


Here's a view of the matchbook open, and that completes my project! Sorry I forgot the sentiment page picture, but you weren't missing much,lol I could add much more than I did because of the weight and instead of cardstock I used tag board figuring it's a bit sturdier.

Ok, I do or will have a little candy for you, but since I've been sick all week I haven't had a chance to get it yet. If you'd like to receive a little suprise gift from me please leave me a comment and I'll draw a winner after the hop ends.

Now, your next stop is Erica and if you ever get lost along the way you can always find the complete list at the Simply Sassy Dt Blog

I think that about covers everything! Thanks for hopping along with us today! As always if you have any questions please fell free to ask and I will get back to you asap!

Have a great day!
xxAutumn

Paula said...

I hope you're feeling much better - those kind of things are really nasty & sap your energy. This is quite an amazing creation & I love the detail of her sparkly slippers & how the butterfly trail of pearls picks up that colour (or non-colour should I say). the butterfly embellishment being the same as the paper is a lovely touch too.
Much love & take care of yourself.

What a fantastic project. Such a unique idea. You have constructed it really well too! I would love to recieve something like this. I may put something like this together for a RAK!

The colours you have used remind me of spring.

P.S I hope you start feeling better! xo

Lillian Child said...

Great projects!! And on that first card, the way you used pastels in the background and then more vibrant colors for the gal just makes her image "pop" off the card. Great creativity!

Shirley N said...

ourmoi said...

Hi autumn, stunning idea! I love making things for my grand daughters and have, today, made them some blank cards with sassy stamps on front for them to colour and give to their mum on Sunday. They adore all things sassy too. So your idea has special appeal to me. Thank you. X
