Welcome to my fun little site. My name is Sheila, you may know me as Sassy Lady. I am a Chicago transplant to the Birmingham, Alabama area. I like to say I am southern by the grace of God! My blog was started to share with family and friends my love for scrapbooking and of course special moments with those around me. Being an avid scrapper I also dabble in card making as I love to remember people and their special times with a card. Click Here To Read More!

This is Pam here. I am so sorry to say that today Sheila Mcshea has gone home to be with the Lord. Her family was by her side .
Miss you so much my dear dear friend Sheila. May you rest in peace .
Happy Thursday, everyone! This is Java Jen from JAVA JEN CREATIONS here to share a unique wedding album I made last week for a beautiful bride for her shower! Thank you, Sheila for the opportunity to share it here! I began with a blank mixed media Collection Folio from Tim Holtz and took off from there! These books are so fun to work with because you can really let your imagination go crazy! The size of this one is a little larger than 8.5'x11' and is just perfect to tuck all sorts of wonderful things in!
The front cover.
One of my favorite parts is the little saying I put inside the front flap! :-)
Pics of the inside - so much to see! :-)
I attached journaling cards to tags and then adhered them in the folio as pages.
The tickets I used are also Tim Holtz and I simply crumpled them up and flattened them out before adhering them to give them a distressed look.
The bride loves to use hashtags so I pulled out a hashtag stamp set that I have from Unity stamps and had some fun with the back cover!
That's it for today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Howdy! Adrienne from Eagle Canyon Arts here as guest designer for She's A Sassy Lady. Thanks to Sheila for her hospitality and grace at allowing so many of us to share her wonderful blog space and be on her great design team!
These cards use the beautiful "A Bunch of Love" Stamps (C1647) and corresponding Thin Cuts metal dies (Z3251) from Close to My Heart.
Shin Han markers in R11 Carmine (Z2448), R140 Lt Orange (Z2455), YR24 Marigold (Z2457), GY234 Leaf Green (Z2454), G46 Vivid Green (Z2466) and BG61 Peacock Green (Z2461) colored the flowers and leaves.
May Stamp of the Month "Celebrate With Cake" (retired) provided the
sentiment and flowers for the inside of the anniversary card. Shin Han
marker colors used for the flower colors are listed above.
3D foam dots or squares are used to lift the stamps up from the card front for added interest.
the card says, thanks a bunch for following along on these projects.
They demonstrate how some little changes can make very similar cards
useful for a variety of occasions. I love the look of these cards
because they're so bright - just right for spring and summer, as well as
cheerful for autumn and winter - any season. If you have any questions or comments, please let me know - I love to hear from you!
Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room with my monthly project. Thanks Sheila and I hope you are doing well. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I went to another card party and these are the cards we made. It's fun because a lot of the stamp sets we use, I don't own so it's nice to stamp new things. I haven't had too much time to play in my craft room because I've been busy with appointments and to be honest, it's been too darn hot. I hope you all are doing well and are enjoying each day.
Have a great weekend and Happy Fourth of July to you all.
Hi! It's Christine from iamcocoasmom.blogspot.com
sharing all my trials and tribulations using the Anna Griffin Fantastic
Flip card dies. Thank you, Sheila, for inviting me back to share. I
know that all your bloggy friends join me in wishing you a speedy return
Sooooo, I did succumb to the lure of Anna
Griffin on HSN and have to admit that I enjoyed putting together the
cards in the kit in as many different ways as I could think of.
However, I really, really wanted to try out the dies that came with the
kit and when I finally acquired the extended platform plates for my Big
Shot, I was ready to go.
Here's what I learned:-
Close your eyes, grit your teeth and ignore the cracking and popping of
the plates as you crank the Big Shot sandwich through. I understand
that it does the same in the Cuttlebug.
* Anna does
not include a die that will cut a frame for the opening. I mean,
really? Plan A - Searching Design Space, I could not find a frame of
the same proportions, even among Anna's carts. On to Plan B - I folded a
4 by 6 inch piece of cardstock and inserted it at the frame end of the
die before cranking it through. This is what's left over when the frame
cut is removed.
the frame cut in two parts but when glued around the opening, I found
that it presented a perfect opportunity for embellishment.
And using patterned paper worked well too.
Using double sided paper gives a variety of interesting results. The
embellishments that come in the kit are printed on one side only and to
my mind, look ugly and unfinished on the inside of the card. Using
double sided paper with the small embellishment dies results in a nicer
look inside. And, because the cardstock is generally thicker, there
isn't the need to strengthen the outer edge of the flip fold. (Since
this is the edge that holds the embellishments, it needs all the
strength it can get!)
* The smaller dies work with the Sizzix magnetic plate and are held firmly in place for the second, embossing pass.
The quality of the dies is not what I expected from Anna Griffin and I
reverted to my good old Heartfelt Creations dies and stamps to embellish
The more cards I made, the more frustrated I became with the fact that
they will not fold flat. I did try running the folded card through the
Big Shot before embellishment, but it wasn't much better.
know, I think I'll put the dies in my next garage sale and continue to
use the Flip cards on the Artfully Sent cart. Sigh! Here's a couple of
You Tube videos I found particularly useful:-
Hi, everyone, this is Charlotte C.Recently on Design With Sassy on Facebook
Sheila challenged us to make a shaped card, and this is what I created to meet
that challenge.I thought for today I
would give you details on how I put it all together.Please come join us on Facebook to see all
the wonderful creations our members have posted.
The house itself is from April Showers and it only has two
layers.I brought in five of them on my
canvas and ungrouped all, saving only one of the top layers.
I welded two together at the rooftop to form my card base,
which I cut in dark brown.The base is
11 x 4.12.For some reason it did not
fit in a standard A2 envelope so I needed to make one with my WRMK punch board
at 4 ½ x 6.
I used a lighter brown for the next three:one is full size and covers the front of the
card base; one I sliced to keep just the roof so I could emboss it; and one I
shrunk a bit to use for the inside of the card.The designer paper used for the top layer is from my stash.
The potted trees are from Bloom.I changed the color, flattened them for print
then cut, inked the edges and adhered to the base, as you can see.The flower boxes are also from Bloom and I
flattened them for print then cut and used foam tape to pop them off the
front.A little brad for the doorknob,
Wink of Stella on the flowers, and some white gel pen finished off the
card.Since I first posted on FB I
decided to add a small pink heart on the door which I also used Wink of Stella
Thank you, Sheila, for inviting me here again, and I wish
you a speedy recovery. I hope you all enjoy this card.
