The design team have created some awesome projects for your inspiration, we are all featuring Memory Box Products you don't have to use them to join in but we would love to see them used if you have them :-)

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

As you know I was recently in the UK for my Nephew’s wedding and this is the card I made for him and his beautiful bride :-) The invitations and colours of the wedding were Red, Blue and Ivory so I used them too :-)

I love this Penny Black Bride and Groom stamp, simple and stunning I think :-)

I stamped twice with Memento Black ink onto Neenah card and coloured with Copics, I then layered the bouquet and adhered with Scrap Dots (fab product) :-) I cut out the hem of the dress before using a Spellbinder’s Grand Oval die and running it though the Grand Calibur machine. I used red coredinations for layering and for cutting out the Memory Box Cherish Border and I used a Hearts M-Bossibilities folder and some ivory stardream paper for the background. I coloured some white Prima roses using a Copic Air Brush and a R27 marker and used a Heart Swirl die too.

I finished with some Hero Arts Champagne pearls, some red satin ribbon and a diamante ribbon slider that I bought eons ago and saved for a very special occasion :-)

I decorated the inside too :-) I printed the sentiment on my comp and used a lovely Simon Says Stamp Exclusives Fresh Daisies die ( LOVE this )

I made a box too !! the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Words set. This was in the June Card Kit,, LOVE these kits :-)

and now a photo of my nephew Craig with his beautiful bride Brittany :-)

Thanks for looking :-) Piali and the DT have made some amazing cards so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)

I have just received a fab parcel of the new released Christmas stamps from the Wild Rose Studio so I just had to ink up this cute Bella with Gifts :-)

I stamped with Black Memento onto Neenah card and coloured with Copics. The papers are from a new Xmas Bella pack and I pieced the blue pressies using paper from the same pack. I added Polar White flower soft to his pom pom and hat trim and added oodles of Star Dust stickles on the falling snow. I embossed a strip of white card using a Swiss Dots folder and added a strip of red polka dots washi tape across the middle. The sentiment is also from a WRS Christmas Circles sentiment set and I added some red bias tape from The Ribbon Girl :-)
