Happy Birthday to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!




Hello Monday my friends! Welcome to our challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where we are celebrating our 10th birthday!! We would love to have you join the party and create something special. This week we are also showcasing the awesome products from Stampers Anonymous! So if you have any, pull them out, we would love to see them.

We welcome back Anne Redfern, aka Redanne as our guest designer for the month of August! Anne is a super-talented crafter and works in a delightful, eclectic style. It's so good to have you here, Anne!!

Happy 10th Birthday to our Monday challenge!


I started with a sheet of Yupo that I had made awhile back and set aside. I used the Pearl Alcohol inks for some added shimmer.  I stamped the butterfly onto this, let it dry completely, then fussy cut it out. 


I took the number stamp from Stampers Anonymous's Perspective set, stuck it onto the stamping platform, and rubbed pastels over the design. I spritzed with water, and stamped two images onto watercolor paper. 


I decided to add some color to the ruler ribbon with the Distress Oxide Sprays.


I made a bright background on the card with the sprays and Bubble stencil. 


I added a key for the butterfly body. I also sprinkled in some Broken China Distress Glaze into the lens and glued that down.  I used the lens to highlight the number 10.


Bright and cheerful, just like the butterflies and hummingbirds that are visiting my flowers right now!


Now, it's time for you to get out your Stampers Anonymous products or birthday items and join us this week. Our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp are offering a $50! shopping voucher, and our designers highlight their favorite makes. 








A GREAT place to shop!

Simon Says Stamp Kids Summer Fun!


My friend Tabitha does some lovely crafts with her children and often adds in friends children too, for crafting fun! They graciously accepted my invitation to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kids Challenge. 

I am thrilled to share these amazing projects for the summer challenge from Evie and Owen!

This is Owen's preschool scrapbook layout. Awesome page from a little guy who is 3 1/2! I love the smiley stickers and the graduating dinosaur.


Evie and Owen creating their layouts...love that concentration!


Here is Evie's Kindergarten graduation layout. She is one amazing scrapbooker at age 6! Love this fun layout, and how she put her photo into the hat. 


So much creative energy here!


And then, the family went camping with their cousins, and made some super awesome Fairy and Wizard Wands!! I can see them having fun "casting spells" with these all summer long. 

These fun wands are created by Owen age 3 1/2, Evie age 6, and their cousins Alivia 2, Sadie 11 and Sophia 13.

(The Mom wand is the one on the right, the rest are all kid designed!)


What a great idea to pack some brushes, feathers, yarn, glitter glue and glue, get some ideas from Pinterest, and do this fun project at camp!

Love this photo of them having creative fun at camp!


Many many thanks to my young friends Evie and Owen for sharing your talents with us!! I see a bright creative future ahead for you two. And many thanks to their mom, Tabitha for sharing with us!

Now, why don't you get your kids, grands, nieces, nephews, neighbors...crafting and share with us at the challenge? It's open to all kids through age 16.
