Simon Says ,,,,,, Anything Goes ,,,,,


Hi all ,, I am going to keep this short and hopefully sweet:-) I will be on my way back from a week’s trip home and am writing this before I leave ,,, a bit weird ,,,, :-)

This week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge the theme is ,,,

ANYTHING GOES

The DT are using Lawn Fawn or Unity Stamps this week, you don’t have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them :-)

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !! For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too

Its a good idea to keep a check on the All New Just In Pages , there is invariably some new goodies listed and it is a handy way to keep up to date with all things new and crafty !!

I have made a Gran’s Brag Book for my friend, Sarah, who is now the proud Grandma’ of a beautiful baby girl :-) I didn’t have time to make a card/creation for the Papertake Weekly Challenge yesterday but I did follow Dawny’s fabby sketch when I made this :-)



I cut some mountboard ( free offcuts from my local framer) to measure 51/2 X 7 inches and used Kaiser Crafts Magic Happens paper, I inked all the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and layered onto lain black card. I stamped the frame and camera using a Lawn fawn ‘Say Cheese’ stamp set, for the frame I stamped with Versamark and embossed with Hero Arts White EP, the camera was stamped with Memento Black ink onto Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copics. I used some Tim Holtz Film strip and used a Martha Stewart Scalloped Heart border punch. I used my Bind It all to make the album and finished with some buttons and a few scraps of ribbons.



Thanks for looking :-) This is America’s last week in the Designer Spotlight and I would like to thank her for all of her wonderful creations over this last month, Thank you America xx Please hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and see all the wonderful creations everyone has made for you to see !! Smile
