Simon Says....Make a gift for someone!


This week our challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is to make a GIFT for someone!!! I made this gate fold notebook for my buddy (can't say who!!!) It was a kit I got from Paper Wishes a long time ago - I used some of the papers but made it my own for the most part - and added Tilda. You can get Tilda at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore, along with MANY of the other Magnolia stamps!!!! I love that key too - so fun to work with! You can get those at Simon Says too!!!

This notebook opens in the middle like a gate, and the pages inside alternate sides (first page opens left, 2nd page opens right, etc.) It was fun to make!! Here is the inside - open to the first page. I didn't decorate the other pages though.

I hope you will head to the Challenge blog and check out the other gifts the DT have made for your viewing pleasure! THEN, get crafting and make a gift for someone!!!! Good idea to get a head start on Christmas gifts maybe?!?!?! LOL We also have a Guest DT member this month, so please go visit JACKIE to see her FABBY creation!!!!

Don't forget you can win this:

And come back Friday to win some more!!!!! Check out the DT blogs for more blog candy too!!!! Have a GREAT week!!!
