Our Friday Friend

It's time to introduce you to another fantastic SASI stamper! This week Our Friday Friend is Jennifer Hollett better to known to many of her friends as Otter (otter005 on SCS). Her cute little M&M's tins will make such great Christmas gifts and favors!

Visit Otter's Gallery and her Blog I Otter Be Stamping! and leave her a comment or two!

And here's our little get-to-know-you interview:

--What city/state do you live in?
Pataskala, Ohio. A little town just East of Columbus

--How did you become addicted to papercrafts? How long have you been stamping?
I started Stamping about six years ago. I was invited to a SU! party, by a co-worker and walked out $300 lighter!! Yes $300! I can honestly say "I have not BOUGHT a card in six years!" I've grow up in a crafty family. My parents did craft shows for as long as I can remember. So it was only a matter of time before I found my own little niche of the crafting world.

--How would you describe your style? What are you favorite projects to create?
I am a VERY simple stamper. I like straight, clean lines, not a lot of layers. I typically go for cutesy images, which is why I was drawn to SASI.

--Do you have a favorite SASI image?
I originally saw Jessie's artwork via Bakerella's Blog, loved it there, and literally screamed out loud when Taylor gave us the first sneak peak of SASI stamps!! "So far" (notice the quotation marks) my favorite is Holly, but "Edward" (that's what I call him, and you Twilight readers will know who I am talking about) is a close second!!

--What is your favorite sweet treat? (feel free to share the recipe if you have one!)
My mom makes the best fudge! It is a hard sugary fudge, not the soft type.

Chocolate Fudge

2 squares baking chocolate
2/3 cup milk
2 cups sugar
2 Tlbs butter
1/2 tsp vanilla

Melt two squares baking chocolate and 2/3 cup milk over low heat until the milk turns chocolaty. Add two cups sugar, and a dash of salt. Boil this to a Soft Ball stage. Remove from heat, add two tablespoons of butter and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, stir until dull.Pour into a jellyroll pan that has been greased with butter. Allow to cool. Slice when cool.


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. 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.)
