Show Us What Inspires YOU!

Hello!
Happy Monday!  It's a brand new week with a brand new Stamp & Show Challenge theme!  This week's theme is Anything Goes!  Make sure to enter for a chance to win a $50.00 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp!

Here are what 3 of our Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge design team members made for the challenge!  If you'd like to see more, stop by the blog and click the person's name or card to see all of the details and leave these wonderful people some comments!  : ) 

Made by May Flaum
May had this to say: What could be more fun on an anything goes week than to get wacky and layer loads of Dylusions ink sprays? I had a blast making the background for this page, and I love how the Claudine Hellmuth flower stencil is perfect as a finishing accent, or as the base for my own custom designed background as I used it here.




Made by Ashli Oliver
Ashli had this to say: While browsing the Simon Says Shop recently, I stumbled across an adorable product - a product that had it's heyday before I was a scrapbooker... Puffies by KI Memories! They are SO cute! I have never really played with them before and since there was such a wonderful selection in the Simon Shop, and anything goes this week, I decided to give them a go. Using lots of Mint Julep goodness from Basic Grey, I layered up photos of my girls driving through "the forest." A bit of Alison Kreft washi along with those adorable Butterfly Puffies finished off this fun and whimsical page documenting something cute my girls always say.





Anna-Karin had this to say: Anything goes challenges are sometimes hard for me, with so many options. I was inspired by my project from last week, wanting to scrap more of my dad's childhood photos. I used twelve different Tim Holtz Sizzix texture fades to emboss plain cardstock, inked and distressed all the pieces and covered the background with them. Papers from the Collage Mini 8 x 8 paper pad were die cut with various Tim Holtz dies and I also used Elements Remnant rubs and tissue tape. The frames were die cut with the Postage Stamp Frame and open to reveal more photos and journaling. The finishing touches were done with a few Idea-ology pieces.
