Our Friday Friend Ryann

This week Our Friday Friend is California girl Ryann Salamon (rsalamon on SCS). Ryan has been a wonderful supporter of SASI from the get-go and you’ll want to check out her gallery full of adorable creations as well as her blog The Inked Spot. Let’s get to know Ryan a little better….

What city/state do you live in?
I live in San Diego, CA

How did you become addicted to papercrafts?
It all started last year when I was visiting my mom to figure out how to make my wedding reception invitations. I was going through her crafty magazines looking for ideas and I thought "Hey, I can do this! "

How long have you been stamping?
1 year

How would you describe your style?
I gravitate towards straight/clean lines and minimal layers. I love white card bases!

What are your favorite projects to create?
I love to alter journals and matching pens. They are great to give as gifts.

Do you have a favorite SASI image?
My favorite SASI image is the cat cupcake from the Trick or Sweet set. As soon as I saw it I had to have it!

What is your favorite sweet treat?
My favorite sweet treat is Banana Nut Bread. My mom made this a lot while I was growing up. The secret to the sweetness is to use VERY ripe bananas! Yum!! Here is the recipe:

Best Ever Banana Nut Bread

1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp salt
3 large RIPE mashed bananas
1/2 tsp baking soda
14 tsp baking powder
3 cups flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Cream sugar and shortening in bowl. Stir in eggs & bananas. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in walnuts. Pour batter into two greased loaf pans. Bake at 325 for one

Thank you Ryan for being Our Friday Friend!!!

And how about you - would you like to be Our Friday Friend?

Each week Taylor will scour the Taylored Expressions Company Gallery at SCS for recent uploads (within the past 10 days) in search of a SASI Stamper to be featured on this blog. To be considered all you have to do is:

**Create something (card, 3D item, scrapbook page, anything) using one or more images from any SASI stamp set. Your creation should showcase SASI, but does not have to be exclusive to SASI.
**Upload your creation to SCS being sure to use the keyword SASI so it will appear in the Taylored Expressions Company Gallery (which is driven by a keyword search) and complete the recipe section of the upload.
**In the description field of your upload please mention Stamp a Sweet Impression stamps are from

Super simple - pretty much just have fun stamping and upload what you make so we can see it! If you are chosen, Taylor will send you an e-mail or PM asking if you'd like to be featured and requesting permission to post one or more of your creations here as Our Friday Friend. You will have the choice of creating something new or just allowing us to post a pic already in your gallery. We will include a link to your SCS Member Gallery and to your blog if you have one (note: a blog is not required to qualify for this feature.)

Have a sweet weekend!

Thanks for the great recipe and for sharing the beautiful card. I am guessing that the bread bakes for one hour? The post ended with "Bake at 325 for one".

Blessings and Light,
