Tuesday Spotlight

This Tuesday your getting to know 
our new Guest designer a little better
Look at this gorgeous card she made for the spotlight..
Here she have used Butterfly Girl  
(and there is a rumor that there will be a tutorial connected to this card later this week so watch out!!)

*Start by telling us a little about you:
Hi, I’m Paula.

I’m 33 years old, and I live in Derbyshire UK, with my very understanding, but slightly bewildered Hubby (he just doesn’t get the excitement of papers, stamps and colouring! I swear he thinks there’s something wrong with me!) I have a 12 year old Son, who never fails to make me laugh!

*When did you start card making and what made you start?
I’ve been card making for about 4 ½ years now, and still loving every minute! I started when I visited my Sister in Law, shortly after she’d been to a card making workshop..she showed me a couple of the cards she’d made... I knew instantly I’d LOVE it! Even though back then it was all peel offs and decoupage.

*What is your preferred coloring medium?
I have to say Promarkers at the moment, as that’s really all I have! I do occasionally add some extra shading with some bog standard pencils...

*What is your fav Simply Sassy stamp?
Ooooh... you can’t ask me that!! Okay, my absolute favourite to colour has got to be Hippie chick BUT... Amelia appeals to the dreamer in me, and I think she’s such an original stamp!!

*How did you notice the Simply Sassy stamps the first time?
I first saw them on the lovely Maria’s blog actually!! And to be completely honest... at first I wasn’t sure if I liked them... I actually only bought my first one a couple of months ago... now I’m obsessed!!!

*What is your favourite style (card making)?
To look at... vintage, shabby, arty... I am so in awe of people who can create this style... I’ve tried, and I can’t pull it off! To make... I don’t think I have a style, my style is ‘choose some nice bits and pieces, and see what happens’... is that a style?

*And what would you love to see more of at the Simply Sassy blog?
Honestly, I know its a cop out, and EVERYONE says the same, but I really do think its perfect the way it is!

Take a look at all the pretty Sassy cards I found in Paula's blog..
Using Little Light of mine 

And this one using Vintage Boutique  That I just got in my mail box 
and obviously you see it's gorgeous but I swear it's prettier in real life♥

Thank you Paula for sharing and we're really happy to have you on our team!!
Pop over to Paula's blog and see  more gorgeous Sassy cards♥

Hugs Maria

  5. Congratulations. Not sure I can find a term to describe Paula's style but it is quite distinctive. Perhaps Cleanly Bright. Looking forward to seeing more of her designs with the Sassies. I too was ambivalent about the Simply Sassy range at first but within a matter of days had done a complete about turn & I have learnt loads about colouring from using them. The images are always a challenge for me. Nice to someone else with a slow-motion response! Interesting it happens to be a namesake too...............
