More Prima - Cigar Box Secrets

Hello Sassy Scrappers, Leonie here today with a lovely floral page to share with you all.

Last week I showed you THIS boy page using the Prima Cigarbox Secrets range and today
it's all girly and flowery but still using with the Cigarbox range.

With all the lovely  florals in this paper range I had to do some fussy cutting.
Not one of my most favourite things to do but
sometimes you just know it's exactly what a photo or paper needs to really show it
at it's best.

More of the gorgeous crochet flowers from the Cigarbox range.
These helped give a nice pop of off-white against the deep pinks and reds of the floral paper.

So that's my page for this week.
Hope you've been inspired in some small way.
Check out the links below to the Cigarbox range in the Sassy Scrapper Online store.

Christmas Gift ideas - part 2

Hello Sassy Friends!

So glad you are joining me again today, as I share some more 
festive gift ideas you can make ahead of time, like these bottleneck talkers
Don't feel you need to be limited to just wine. You can do up one of these 
for a gorgeous marinade or a nice bottle of olive oil!

What's really nice about these is that you can use up bits 
and pieces, as they don't need a whole lot of paper.

1. Simply cut a strip of paper
The length will need to be adjusted according to how tall the
bottle or jar is. Fold over a smaller section at the top.
(This will again, depend on how large your gift is.)
2. Figure out what size hole you need and cut it out
(This Fiskars shape cutter is super useful as it gives you 
lots of size options on one template.)
3. Embellish!

As you can see, I have created three different types.
This one uses Deck the Halls and Red Flurries/Stripes paper and Bits & Pieces.
The word Thanks has been cut on my Silhouette machine (Cream flurries/stripes).

I have wound a length of patterned paper, some American Crafts glitter tape and some twine around the neck. As a final flourish, I have added an Epiphany Crafts charm (which was just a 25mm punched circle from one of the patterned papers. Pop an epoxy sticker on the top and set inside a circle charm.)

If you want to pop in a little something extra, this one 
uses a Sn@p Pocket as a gift card holder!
Embellish with a cute bow (Silhouette cut file), Chipboard stickers and Bit & Pieces

The neck is very simply some rustic twine.

This custom label bottle is my favourite of the three!
(The recipient can still tell what the varietal is as there is more info on the original back label.)

I've simply machine stitched some detail onto a rectangular piece of paper and then adhered some mini labels from the die cuts pack.
The ampersand was cut on my Silhouette and I then heat embossed it with American Crafts gold glitter powder as I didn't have any gold glitter paper!
The clean and simple design is finished off with some 
red seam binding and a little die cut shape.
I hope you will give this idea a go. I figure, if they don't drink wine, 
they can always take it to a Christmas get together! If you make one, please 
tag us in your photos, we would love to see!

Thanks so much for joining me. I will be back again next Friday 
with another fun idea. Happy crafting!

Fairy Girl - BoBunny

hi everyone, happy sassy Thursday 
Anita here sharing a 12x12 canvas decorated with BoBunny - Madeleine
I just love the softness of this collection with all the flowers to fussy cut and those cute little birds so I had this little idea to use a photo of my daughter Kara sitting undera mulberry tree that she would make a cute little fairy girl 
So I started by applying gesso to the canvas

Next I used a stencil and applied texture paste to half of the canvas then aloud it to dry
After it was dry I added more to the other side this time adding a small drop of pink paint then set it aside to dry next I used a little bit of gesso over the top to smooth it out
Then I was ready to decorate with fussy cut flowers
Birdcages and sweet little birds and punched out butterflies
I used the glitter paste on the edges of the flowers and the ruffled paper
I also added some machine stitching and distressing and after I was finished i dripped some pink paint and some sugar mist

Thankyou everyone, stay tuned below to see what the lovely Leonie has been creating...It is just magnicifient...

Hello Leonie here, and welcome to my weekly post on the 
Sassy Scrapper blog.
I've been showcasing the Prima range - Cigarbox Secrets the past couple of weeks.

Although it has some lovely floral papers it also, as the name suggests, has
some masculine themes to it.  So this week I've drawn on those elements 
and scrapped a photo of my eldest son and I.

These are the only flowery type embellishments I used on this page and I figured the
Indian Chief on the doiley helped even it out a little.

I used the crystals from the 'Say It In Crystals' pack that had a red tone to them and this helped 
provide a little bright pop of colour along with the single red flower and red alphas.  
The rest of the papers and background all being in neutral colours. 

See below for links where you can purchase all the products I've used on this page in the 
Sassy Scrapper online store.
thanks for stopping by.
Cheers, Leonie Neal-Dawson.
