Simon Says: Recycle


Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week we would like you to recycle something! Maybe use some ribbon or twine from a gift you received or decorate a carton or jar, there is so much 'rubbish' that we can alter into something beautiful and help to save the planet at the same time!

Recycle 

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! 
All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

Please pop by to see what our fabulous guest Wendy  and the DT have made!! Jaw droppingly gorgeous creations!! 

I used some packaging card and leftover pages from school exercise books to create a notebook a Post It Note Holder and a Bookmark! Once I got started on recycling I couldn't stop! ;-) 



For the notebook I used a fabulous Visible Image Ahead Of Our Times Stamp Set a Tim Holtz Grid Cling Stamp and a Mini Stencil Set 5 for the background. I inked up the paper with Ground Espresso  Distress Oxide Inks, spritzed and splattered with water and Black Marble inks and then used the text stencil and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink to add some interest. I stitched around the edges and used a Tim Holtz Lower Cut Out Alphabet Bigz Die to add the 'notes'

The sentiment on the tag from a Tim Holtz Snarky Small Talk Stickers Pack, one is lifting and I stuck it back down after photographing ;-) 


I used a Bind-It-All tool which is very similar to a We R Memory Keepers Cinch Machine, which is WAY at the top of my wish list and I am so going to get me one for my birthday, because I'm worth it ;-) 


Next up is the Post It Note Holder, for this I used a Visible Image Somewhere In Time Stamp Set 


and while I had all of the inks and stuff out I made this little bookmark using a Visible Image Ahead Of Our Times Stamp Set too.  My thought behind this was falling into a book and losing track of time, sometimes I even amaze myself!! ;-) haha 


Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!
