Corrugated Mini Book: A Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week, the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to use a specialty paper. I chose corrugated. With corrugated, you get fabulous color, durability, and of course...the awesome texture.
Like most crafters, I have hundreds of pretty little papers that I can't bear to part with. This week, I used these little snippets to create a miniature junk journal. This was so easy that I can't wait to share! I punched a hole through the individual papers (very little cutting involved...I liked them different lengths) and punched holes in the corrugated covers and tied it together with string. That's it! Now I have a pretty, yet sturdy, mini journal in my handbag!

I love the little stamp that decorates my journal cover. The stamp is by Prima. It stamps a perfectly detailed image each time and is about half of the cost of most company's. That's impressive!

What will you create with specialty paper? Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp. We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.

Right at Home: Stamp Launch and Blog Hop

Hello! Through Instagram, I met a wonderful woman named Nicole who has a shop called Right at Home. I was thrilled that she asked me to be a guest designer for their very first exclusive Happy Mail stamp set. How exciting!
I used the stamps to make a Happy Mail Stationery Set. I love making cute sets with matching envelopes. It's just as much fun to decorate the inside and back of the envelope too.

There's a lot that you can do with cute florals.

To celebrate the stamp launch, Right at Home has arranged a blog hop with some amazingly talented designers. Hop around and see what they've created!

Right at Home will be giving away three sets of the new stamps through Instagram. To win, visit them on Instagram . The giveaway contest will be June 22nd-24th.

Make it 3-D: An Art With Heart Challenge for July

The sun is shining, the AC is blowin' and I'm having fun with Sizzix!
As you know, each month I participate in the Art With Heart Challenge with Eileen Hull. This month, the theme is "Make it 3-D". I've been Sizzix-ing all month long and have lots of inspiration to share.
Not counting drying time, each of these projects took less than 15 minutes. It's true! 
The basket bow was created with the bow die. When attached to a large clothes pin, it makes a fun gift bow that can be re-used. The gift-card holder I previously shared on the post, Sizzix Scoreboard Jurassic World Gift Box.  And the luggage tag Bookmark was a recent project that I made for my Aunt. The photo is one of my cousin, who past away too soon, many years ago.
My Aunt cried when she opened it. That's Art with Heart.

We want this to be a place for everyone to create, inspire and share.  We would love to see what you can do with Eileen Hull’s fabulous products but this is not a requirement.  Use what ever products your artful “heart” desires.  Art is for everyone so come along and share your Art with Heart!

We want you all to create freely there are no rules here, just a few simple guidelines…

1.Create a new project following the Art with Heart Challenge Theme (however you interpret the theme) OR if you have created something that fits the theme previously create a new post with a photo and link to the original post.
 2.Include a link to the current Art with Heart Challenge in your post so others can play along too!
3.When linking up your project please include a direct link to your post.
4.You are not required to use Eileen Hull Products in your projects.  However, those who do use Eileen Hull products will be given two entries into the prize draw.
