Simon Says: Try To Contain Yourself
















Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Celebrate Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is

Try To Contain Yourself

There are so many possibilities for this theme, you could recycle a container, cup, tin, bottle, box etc, add a container to your project or make a container from scratch! Whatever you decide to make we will be looking forward to seeing what you use!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I used my Silhouette Cameo Machine and a Lori Whitlock Design to make this File Box using a Tim Holtz Dapper Paper Pack 


 I made this for my brother and his partner, I stay with them quite often on my regular visits to London so I thought it would be nice to make him something a bit special, especially as the next time I go he is expected to make scones for me and my friends ;-)


I made a set of 6 cards, I think they will like this CAS masculine style. 



Thanks for looking! 


So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

This is such a practical idea and yet you've still made it a stunning art piece as well! I love when practicality meets style! I always struggle with masculine cards, so I really think you nailed it with these designs. I love the rustic vibe, yet the cards also have plenty of traditional Christmas elements. Well done indeed!

Meihsia Liu said...
