Simon Says: Treat Bags/Boxes on the Monday Challenge


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

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

Treat Bag/Box

With Halloween and Christmas fast approaching most of us need to make a few gift/treat bags or boxes! You could also choose to make a project featuring some sort of container.  We will be looking forward to seeing what you decide to create!

Please pop over to visit the DT and our lovely Designer In The Spotlight, Nikki! Everyone has made some fabulous creations and I am sure they would all appreciate a few nice comments ;-)

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

I made a couple of Christmas gift bags using a Lawn Fawn Goody Bag Die and a Mini Dog and Cat Stamp Set

I recently bought this lovely Mini Dog and Cat Stamp Set and now I saw that there is a coordinating die set, which I definitely NEED! makes life so much easier than fussy cutting! ;-)

Aren't they CUTE!! I thought I would pop some chocolate snowballs in them and hang them on the tree, or maybe a tie in one and a pair of earrings or something like that in the other, a wristwatch maybe, hmm so many things you could pop in these! ;-)

The little kitty is looking a bit worried isn't he! haha 

So now it's YOUR turn to get out your inks and stuff and join in!

Happy Crafting

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #sssmchallenge so we can see your entries there too

You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in

Update: I had scheduled this to post as I had work this morning (midwifery home visits) and I tripped and went flying (there is a rude saying which I won't repeat on here, but you know what I mean ;-)) and broke my ankle! OUCH!! I am now trying to pluck up the courage to hobble upstairs to my craft room! Wish me luck :-)

Love these little bags with the fun cat and dog in the Santa hats! Pull your broom out - maybe it has special powers at this time of year to get you up those stairs! Sorry to hear this happened, and I hope the healing is fast! hugs, Maura

Donna Phelan said...

These are absolutely ADORABLE! Each one is a stunner! So Festive! Oh sorry about your accident, thankfully (other than walking into your craft room) you don't need your ankle to craft! Ouch is right! Here's to a speedy recovery!!! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Mod Squad Challenge Donna, Challenge Host.

First: great bags. I love the purple (which is my fave color) with cat (as I love cats like crazy) the most :-) The stars make htem so cute and delicate! Great job!

Second: I'm sorry for your ankle, I had the same situation exactly 3 years ago in October and also with my right leg. The stairs will be your enemy for some time. But... can you imagine how much time you have for crafting? No delayed projects, no hurry, just crafting and you :-) Take care, Lols.

Sandra H said...

They are amazing!

Meihsia Liu said...

Both treat bags are gorgeous, Lols. Love the fantastic dog and cat themes. :)

Di Wong said...

Emma Williams said...

Love, love...LOVE these little bags and adore the dogs and cats, they are just so cute and so much fun! Fabulous work Lols and sending love and hugs for your poorly ankle! xxx

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

Oh my goodness, Lols! I hope you're recovering from your ankle trauma! The good news here is that a broken ankle doesn't seem to have negatively affected that crafty brain of yours at all because these bags are so charming! I loved seeing a cat version and a dog version and how they match nicely, but are still each unique. I especially love the background textures. Stunning job and best wishes for a speedy recovery!
