Happy Saturday and welcome to the Sassy Studio Designs FAN-tastic Blog Hop.   If you came here from the oh so awesome and talented Rachelle's blog, you are on the right track.  I would like to introduce you to Wednesday Sara Addams.  She was suggested by SSD Fan Sara.  I would personally like to thank you Sara for this awesome image.  We wouldn't have it if it wasn't for you.  So here she is.


Don't you feel bad for the poor Teddy?  I had issues taking a picture of this card.  I used the Black Currant Stack from DCWV for the background.  I love this collection but the papers have so much shimmer and shine to them that it messes with the lighting.  I colored WSA with Copics, cut her out and popped her up with SU dimensionals.  The white paper behind her is actually embossed but you can't tell in the picture.  I also used a Martha Stewart border punch for the skull/crossbones layer on the bottom. 

I want to share my favorite/least favorite tools with you.  My absolute favorite crafting tool is my Scotch Advanced Tape Glider (ATG).  My husband bought it for my birthday last year.  It only took a few minutes to get used to it and off I went.  This holds 72 yards of tape at a time.  I love it so much that I actually bought myself a second one a few months ago.  I keep my acid free tape in one and general purpose in the other one.  I love it.  As I said, it took a few minutes to get the hang of it but I will never go back to a small tape runner again.

Now comes my least favorite.  If you are like me, you have tons of thin dies.  I have Spellbinders, Marianne Designs, Cheery Lynn & QuicKutz.  They were all over the place so I went in search of a storage solution.  I found this beautiful book/box magnetic storage binder from QuicKutz.  It came with one magnetic sheet and I bought 2 more to go with it.  All were ridiculously expensive.  They didn't work.  My dies kept falling off and sliding all over each other.  I was so disappointed.  I now have an Art Bin with magnetic sheets and I love that.

I also want to throw in my Martha Stewart glitter glue.  I bought the entire collection and couldn't wait to use it.  Every bottle clogged after the first use.  I don't know if I got a bad batch or if they are all like this.  I was so disappointed.  I wish Martha would give my money back.

I can't wait to read what your favorite tools are.  Don't forget to leave a comment on the SSD blog for a chance to win 3 FAN-tastic images.  You can also win 1 image by leaving some love for the DT.  All the details are posted on the SSD blog.

Thanks so much for joining us.  Please head over to the extremely talented leader of our FFF Fabettes on PCP...Miss Regan.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  If you got lost along the way, here is the entire hop list.

This card is just fantastic!!! Purple is my fav and this is just gorgeous!! I love your eye for details. Having the middle off just a bit really makes it pop. The contrast with the middle background paper and the paper on the sides is just amazing. The details on her dress, you are just incredible. Once again, the Beck can't be beat!!!
