Anything Goes...

Sunday, August 17, 2014

This week the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "Anything Goes". This is a wonderful time to try a new technique or play with a new stamp set. For my project, I used a few new items that I've been itching to try. I used the new bookmark die from Simon Says Stamp. This die can create a sweet little bookmark out of anything in seconds! So fast and easy that I made several of these.
The spoon was cut with a sizzix die. I love this little spoon! It reminds me of the little spoons that used to come with ice cream cups...mmmm...but that's a whole other project for a later date. :) 
Anyway....once the spoon was cut, it was easy to color and decorate. The little curve of the spoon was stamped with a stem stamp. Clever, isn't it?
If you use an e-reader or don't read, that's okay. This little bookmark can do double-duty as a tag or embellishment.


Do you remember chairs like these? Some of them had this crazy embossed pattern on them. THAT's what this embossing folder reminds me of! I remember having to sit at the dinner table until I ate my vegetables and then when I stood up, there were patterns indented on my thighs! LOL! True story! So I can say with experience, that the embossing looks a lot better on the paper than it does on your thighs!

Get creative and have some fun! Join us this week at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and 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.

  6. Such an adorable project and I loved reading about your inspiration. The retro pictures were so fun to see, too. I really like anything from that era and admire how you pay homage to days gone by, but always with a fresh take on things.
