Savvy N Sassy August Ribbon Kit Creations

I got the Henry's Brilliance August Ribbon Kit to create with this month from SavvyNSassy. Tons of blues, so you know I was happy! BTW, these ribbons were grouped together to coordinate with the new Nikki Sivils papers.

Look at that! A layout! I'm trying to catch up on scrapping the pics from the 12 of 12 project I'm participating in. This is my first time using Thickers too. Gasp, I know, right?! Close-up of my embellishment cluster below. :)I got these embroidery hoops at a flea market, even though I don't do embroidery or cross-stitch. I'm liking how this came out. I call it faux embroidery! I used a thinner patterned paper that somewhat looks as though it could be printed aida cloth. Traced around a chipboard "S" letter for Sam trying to make the lines look like stitching. I added the threaded needle to make it more realistic. Mission accomplished?
Dylan gets Highlights magazine and every month there is some sort of pull out craft. Since it's just flimsy magazine paper though, it never holds up well. So I cut it all out and made a front and back chipboard cover from cereal boxes and surprised Dylan with this when he got home from school. He was thrilled!
Here's a little whimsical journaling spot I paper pieced like crazy. This is one of those things that no matter how hard you try to take a photo, it just looks better in person.
Don't shoot me for creating this Christmas journaling spot in the middle of Summer, mmkay? :) The Santa is actually pop-dotted from the blue snowy background behind him. Looks really neat in my opinion. I'm still a newbie at coloring in stamps, but Stickles always help to make things look better!
Here's a Halloween card done up in non-traditional colors. I'm happy with how it came out. It also felt good to create something so satisfying from my beloved Love Elsie paper stash. Pop-dotted paper-pieced Pink Paislee skull stamped image too. {Say that 3 times fast.}
Thanks for looking! Check out SavvyNSassy for this awesome ribbon kit. They also have all Gel-a-tin stamps on sale til Friday!


  1. I love Thickers! They are so great for adding depth to a page. And, I love that 'goofy goblins' card. Super cute!

  2. What a beautiful bunch of scrappy projects! Aren't Thickers the best?
