Simon Says....Anything But a Card

Photobucket



This week at Simon Says, we have an awesome challenge for you! If you head to the CHALLENGE BLOG, you will find out that the challenge this week is ANYTHING BUT A CARD..... and the Design Team's fabulous creations are there too!!! The Design Team is showcasing Tim Holtz...and holy man, there are a TON of options for using any of Tim's products - and Simon Says Stamp has it ALL!!!!!!

Here is the notebook I made:

IT is not a "typical" Tim Holtz-y project but that just isn't "me"....but I used a LOT of TH stuff!!!! I used Tim Holtz RETRO GRUNGE Designer paper for the base & insides (it really is green, although it is hard to tell!). The orange is a piece of SU paper from Sunny Garden DP. Then, I took a piece of Tim Holtz's Grunge Paper and ran it through my Cuttlebug with a Labels One Nestability. I spritzed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Lily Pad). The image is Magnolia, and I coloured Midsummer Tilda with Copics. The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz set called Odds & Ends. The rhinestones are also from my stash! You can get ALL of those supplies from Simon Says Stamp Superstore! How awesome is that?!?!?!

Here is the inside - I completely dismantle the notebook - coil, paper & both covers; then I cover them completely, so it doesn't matter how ugly they are underneath....they become beautiful when I'm done!!



Remember, if you join us this week, you get a chance to win a $50 SPREE from SIMON SAYS STAMP SUPERSTORE!!!! Wooooooooo hoooooooooooo!!!! So, what are you waiting for?? Go check out the DT samples and come play with us!!!!!

Fantastic journal Chris, this will be an absolute pleasure to use. I'm amazed at how many TH products can be used in one project and you have shown then off perfectly.

Take care and hugs,
