Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Store!


Hello and welcome to this weeks simon says stamp wednesday challenge, we are creating anything but a card this week. The design team is using products from we r memory keepersDon't forgot every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 voucher...wooohooo....now that is worth playing for!




I have created a shaker...eeeccckkkk. I am so shaker challenged, but used the fuse tool with clear fusable sheets and created an adorable shaker pack and paired it with the sweet shaker tag embellie. I also used the letter embossing folder from we r memory keepers and then painted only the letters L O V E....I then added all sorts of sequins and beads for a fun shaker. The tab was created using the tab punch and the word love is from a hero arts set. The bag has a couple cards and envies inside for the perfect gift. I can't wait to see what you create!

mojo monday/mojo480 - hello


hello frineds, I am sharing today's mojo monday sketch paired with last weeks color throwdown colors. I have used an adorable echo park die that includes the flower, the leaves, and the word die...isn't it adorable? I used a watercolor splash background, added some ink splatter, and the sweet striped heart that was lying on my desk and then the clear pretty pink posh sequins. Hope you have a super fun week, be sure to make time to create!

words with meaning - one of our greatest tests is to see if we able to bless someone else while we are going through our own storm.
