Our Etsy Shop Has Moved

Monday, August 3, 2009 2:54 PM with 0 comments »

Our previous etsy user name was SassyStampinDivas we have just relocated and will be calling ourselves Divas3Design. You can find our shop listing by visiting http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=7781509

We will also be changing our business name to Divas3Design and relocating our blog soon.

Our decision to change names was a very hard decision to make but we have been getting a lot of responses from customers that think we are Stampin Up because of the word Stampin in our name.

Although stamping is part of what we do with our business (ie, hand stamped greeting cards), our business also largely consists of digital scrapbooking services, and photo cards. So our new name just seems to fit better and likely will not cause too much confusion.

We will be making updates all month and will notify you as changes are made. We appreciate our followers and hope that you will continue to follow us as we make this move permanant

Fair Booth Pictures

This past week we had a booth at our local county fair. We thought it would be the perfect opportunity to let our community know of our scrapbooking services. We done it as a promotional venue but as an added bonus we also sold a few items.

My Chipboard Album

Thursday, June 18, 2009 3:43 PM | , with 0 comments »

Mom and I are preparing to promote The Sassy Stampin Divas at the Daviess County Fair next week. The above photos are of a chipboard album that I completed. this album we will be displaying at the fair. As you can see, I used photos from earlier in the week and based this album around the "Cousins" theme. It turned out really cute, I think. We have been working on some paper bag albums too. I'll post them later on.

Photography Fun

Tuesday, June 16, 2009 5:06 PM | with 0 comments »

I was browsing a local photographer's website and found a really neat photo of a high school senior sitting in the middle of a chalk drawing. And that was the inspiration for my photos on the left.

So, I ran outside with my 4 year old and her sidewalk chalk, and had her write her name on the new blacktop and draw some other doodles.

She said "But mommy what if a car comes? I'll get ran over!" I told her "It's ok, I'll watch for cars." I never let my child play in the street so she was a little confused. When she was finished drawing I posed her in the road near her drawing and snapped a few shots. I wanted to get a little bit higher to get the shot so I had my ladder propped up on the street. Alexis was a bit fussy and wasn't really wanting to pose for me, so it took several shots and along with my pleas for cooperation.
Then I decided I would do the same using Alexis and her cousins. Now getting 2 four year olds and a 6 year old to cooperate all at the same time was quite a chore. I'm sure the neighbors thought I was crazy for sure! But overall I'm pleased with my results.

2 Page Wedding Layout

Thursday, May 28, 2009 1:39 AM | with 0 comments »

The other night I was looking through a Readers Digest and ran across an ad about Texas. As soon as I seen it I thought what a wonderful digital scrapbook layout this would be. I had downloaded some pictures from Stock.xchng and thought they would make an awesome wedding layout. I love the way it turned out and it was so much fun using such wonderful  pictures.

This layout is a great way to use lots of pictures, I used thirteen all together.

Here is the ad that inspired me.

Here is my 2 page digital scrapbook layout!

This is two 12x12 inch pages and would be displayed side by side in a scrapbook.  I think they would also look nice framed side by side.  This is an example of what we could create with your wedding pictures.
