Simply Sassy New Release Blog Hop

Hello Everyone and welcome to the Simply Sassy new release blog hop! If you've come her from the lovely       , you're on the right track. If you've just happened upon my blog and want to start at the begining please go the Simply Sassy Dt Blog where you'll find the complete hop list. I hope you are enjoying your journey so far and here's what I have to share with you....




 ... the wonderful 'Love Letters'...perfect for many crafty things!! I saw this saw this stationary box ages ago and knew I wanted to try one and FINALLY I got the perfect stamp! So here's what it looks like opened...


Sorry for the less than stellar pics. This took me a while to make and almost every table in our house got covered with paper in the process.  I used a lot of the same paper so it's a little hard to see, but there's two small holders on the outside and one large one behind it.  I've got some tags started for one of the holders but didn't have the ribbon I wanted and one small 3x3 card in the other...just didn't have time to get it all done. I also started a larger card and put it in there just so you can see what a neat set this is going to be. Here's the tutorial I followed, but I changed a few things as far as the notebook and pens go.


I will leave you with a closer view of Love Letters. Sorry I don't have copics as I was working on several different things at the time I colored her.
If you want a chance to win this beauty leave me a comment before Monday the 19th at noon UK (that's 6am CST in the US)

Well, that's all for me. I hope you've enjoyed my project and now your off to the wonderfully talented Alina.  Remember the new stamps are available today at...


Enjoy the rest of your hop!

It sounds as if you were multi-tasking with a vengeance - please post your finished project when it is done as this looks really superb. I love the grey/brown & blue tones with her blonde hair & those pearl accents really add a touch of luxury. That little blue rose flower picks out the roses in the pattern beautifully too.
Have a lovely weekend.
