Simon Says Challenge - Back To School

Simon Says Stamp

Hellooo ! I hope you are all happy and well and having a good week so far.  We had a gorgeous day in Bournemouth on Monday and took the girls to Adventure Wonderland where we all had lots of fun.  Its a fantastic place to take small children so they can hop on and off lots of rides to their hearts content.  We thought it would be a bit tame for Mollie but she loved it too !  Anyway......

 Welcome to another Simon Says Challenge !

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!

This week our challenge is BACK TO SCHOOL.

This week the Design Team are showcasing Sizzix products.  If you have any of these then we would love to see you use them in our challenge but if not, we would love to see your creations anyway !!

The DT have made some amazing cards for your inspiration.

I made a book mark this week using :

My Mind's Eye 6x6 papers "Be Amazing" which I machine stitched and also Echo Park's "Charming", "This and That" papers.

I then used my Sizzix Big Shot to die cut the apple and tickets.

The apple is from a Spellbinders Shapeabilities set "Nested Apples"

The tickets and Tim Holtz Sizzix Die "Ticket Strip" and I stamped these with some little Hero Arts ticket stamps I found in my stash.

The text has been created using a Dymo machine similar to this one 

The little wooden ruler is by Maya Road "Vintage Wood Tiny Ruler"

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing all your "Back To School" creations.

Don't forget the children's challenge which is still going on over at the Simon Says Challenge Blog !

Thank you so much for your visit.  Make sure you come back on Thursday when I have something very exciting to share with you !

Have a great Wednesday !
