Do you like Copic markers

Well if you do take a look at this:

Savvy n' Sassy is proud to present our first ever Copic Club!!!

Beginner or expert you're welcome to join!!! We will give you a couple of options here so there is something for everyone! All markers in the store will be COPIC SKETCH MARKERS unless otherwise stated.

COPIC CLUB #1 - $11.50/month - Each month (around the 15th) you will get to choose TWO marker colors from the available in store stock. This works out to $5.75 per marker, which is a screamin' deal!

COPIC CLUB #2 - $16.50/month - Each month (around the 15th) you will get to choose THREE marker colors from the instore stock. This works out to $5.50 per marker which is INSANE!!! Yes, Rhea has lost her mind!!!

Along with your markers, if you are a member of the Copic Club, you can pick up additional markers at the time you submit your monthly choices for only $6.00 per marker (Copic Club pricing)!! That way if you want to build your collection FASTER you will be able to do so rapidly and get Copic Club pricing on the markers to boot!! Regular store pricing on the markers is going to be $6.50. Most likely you will have your Copic Club orders shipped with your regular orders in your pizza box - you all get pizza box deliveries like me at least once each month right??? (*wink).....but if you do need them shipped separately, they will be sent as lettermail. You can check your individual rate on the shipping information page.

Lis and myself will be heading up the Copic Team and providing lots of inspiration, challenges and hopefully a few tutorials to teach you exciting things to do with your new markers!! Please let us know if you have any questions!!! :) We're definitely here to help!

We can't wait to get started!!! The markers will be arriving in the store sign up today!!!!! (Yes, right below this thread will be fine - just make sure to mention whether you want Copic Club #1 or Copic Club #2!!!)

Magnolia Monday Again!

Good morning! It's Monday again. On the Humble Pie blog it's showcase Monday. Head over there to check out creations with stamps other than Humble Pie that Phebe carries at the Town Scrapper.

This card has a couple of new Magnolias I received from Phebe a few weeks back. Don't you love the knife and fork. I thought it was so cute. And the little lady sitting on them is Jam Tilda. I colored my knife and fork with my Smooch to make it look like silver. It's much better in real life.

Well I'm off to start our week. Hope you have a great day!

Humble Pie Friday!

TGIF! Today is a big day here. My little guy is getting a leadership award at school this afternoon and he has no idea. I can't wait to see the look on his face when they call him up.

On to the Humble Pie challenge. This week was to use only ONE type of embellishment. You could use as many as you like of it but it's only one. So I used flowers with Flower Maggie, who is my favorite Humble Pie stamp.

Well that's it for today, I'm going to spend the weekend cheering on our Canadian athletes. Have a wonderful weekend

Cupcake Delight

Good morning!

Today I have some of my Savvy'n'Sassy projects to share with you. This is the new February ribbon kit...Cupcake Delight. You can see more details here. Also, there is still time to apply for the DT call here. And a little teaser...there is something exciting in the works at Savvy'n'Sassy. So stay tuned, pretty soon I'll let you in on it and you will want to hear what we are up to over there!

On to my projects. Today I have my layouts, next week I'll post some cards.

This first one uses the brand new Basic Grey Origins. I think this is my favorite collection to date. Someone said it was definitely "Ann" colors. This is my handsome DH while we were on a hike last summer.

Here is my littlest while we were on the same hike. He's so full of personality. I used some Bo Bunny on this layout

More Bo Bunny for this one. This is my and my sister after we ran 5K last Mother's Day. I did it in under 35 minutes and I am pretty happy with that time considering it was my first race.

Hope you have a great day, thanks for stopping by.
