We are showcasing NEWTONS NOOK PRODUCTS this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


As a cat lover and owner of two of the cutest kitties ever, this set from Newton’s Nook called Naughty Newton really makes sense to me!  It has come fab images of Newton getting into trouble but the one that hits home the most to me is this one where he’s clawing the furniture!  I have so many ruined chairs because of this kind of activity!!  I took some wood effect paper and simply cut some shapes to create a sideboard and then stamped just the claw marks in Versamark and heat embossed them in white.  The I stamped and coloured the kitty and cut him out and then placed him so he looked like he was scratching the furniture! For the background I used some paper from the July Simon Says Stamp card Kit and also stamped some bits and pieces from the To Thine Own Shelf stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.

  2. I love the kitty clawing the table – so funny! I guess we are lucky – our kitties don’t claw the furniture but Newton does enjoy scratching our bottom stair step!! LOL!

  3. This is adorable! I love the kitty clawing the table! I guess we’re pretty lucky that our two fur babies don’t claw the furniture! Although Newton does like the bottom stair step!!
