Simon Says: Winter Blues










Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Winter Blues 
This week we are challenging you to create something with a spot of blue somewhere on your creation.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please pop by to see the fabulous creations that our lovely guest Amber and there DT have made :-) 

I used an Eileen Hull Sizzix Journal Box Die to make a note/travel book. 


I covered the folder with watercolor paper and then used Faded Jeans and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks, a Tim Holtz Bubble Layering Stencil, Fluted Stars Idea-ology  and a Spellbinders Seth Apter Robo Rings Die Set to decorate the cover.


I made a notebook and sketchbook for the inside, using Tim Holtz Wildlfowers 2 Die set to add a little interest. 




Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #sssmchallenge so we can see your entries there too





You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in
