Going Forward... Looking Back: A Sassy Studio Designs Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sassy Studio Designs January release!  Lindsay has Sassified four of our favorite villains, and we're here to show them off!  Whether you love them or love to hate them, you'll no doubt be enchanted by these wicked women!

Our theme is....Going Forward....Looking Back!

Everyone on the design team has made a project using one or more of their favorites of 2012 from the following list...

Favorite Sassy saying or sentiment
Favorite tool to use
Favorite paper
Favorite sketch
Favorite technique
Favorite style
Favorite color
Favorite brand
Favorite embellishment....ribbon, flower, bling, mesh etc... 

And we each chose a favorite project that we made during 2012.

If you arrived here from Susan's blog, you are on the right track.  If not, pop over to the SSD blog for the complete hop order.  Trust me, you won't want to miss a single sinister creation!  Or a chance to win!  That's right, there are prizes!  It just wouldn't be a Sassy hop without them!

-2 randomly selected comments will be picked each day to win 2 images
-1 randomly selected winner each day of the hop to win all 4 images.
(These will be picked from comments left through out the hop!  To be eligible to win you must comment on each blog for that day and comment on the SSD blog!)

The winners of the teasers will be posted on tomorrows hop!  And the winners of the hop will be posted on Wednesday the 30th.

My image is Ursula Pinup!  I just love her!  She is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  Anyone who follows my blog knows these are both favorite techniques of mine!  I used a retired background image (Under the Sea), also colored with Copics, that was a freebie over on our Paper Craft Planet group a couple of months ago.  Then I did what I do best: EMBELLISHED!  I added a punched border, sand dollar, and star fish- all from Martha Stewart; flowers; and pearls.  Not to mention the glaze pen on the bubbles; the white gel pen in her hair; and the metallic gold pen on her necklace and earrings!  I usually utilize a sketch too (another fave technique of mine) but this time I went rogue and did it all on my own!  Plus she's purple!  My favorite color!

And as for my favorite project from 2012...  Well, that was a tough one!  I couldn't pick just one so I narrowed it down to my Top 3 and created a collage for you:

Two of the cards are center step cards I made.  These were just sheer genius, if I do say so myself, and I couldn't be prouder of them!  The other card is a Halloween birthday card I created, and I love how all the elements come together!

What are YOUR favorites?  And what are you looking forward to in 2013?  I have a lot to look forward to this year!  I get to enjoy that small man of mine and cherish every moment of mommyhood!  My best friend and I both turn 40 and we have some amazing shenanigans in the works!  Plus my youngest brother is getting married in May, and he and his fiancee have asked me to officiate their wedding! And then there's all the fabulous crafty projects that are just waiting to be made!  So there are some exciting things happening here this year!

Your last stop on the hop is the Sassy Studio Designs blog.  Be sure you're leaving love as you go to be eligible to win!  I hope you are enjoying our release and your weekend!  Thank you for stopping by!

Regan, I just love this inside and out! All the embellishments, punches, bits and bobs really jump out at you not to mention the fact that you shaded BLACK Fabulously! (I hate you! - no not really - I love all your creations - I secretly stalked you before I was on the DT picking up tips here and there from you fabulously talented ladies - LOL!) Love your look back cards as well, but the Sassy in the city is my fav, just pure genious using them on 1 card! Thanks for all the inspiration!

My Scrap Diary said...

This is gorgeous Regan!! The whole under the sea theme is beautifully made with the flowers and punches and a cool Ursula. Your top 3 are also very cool, my fave is the birthday Halloween. I'm an October baby so I'm all too familiar with Halloween birthdays :)

Congrats to your little brother!
