Simon Says … Tie It Up


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

Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher

This week the challenge is


use ribbon, twine or anything you can think of to add a knot of a bow to your creation.

We are showcasing PAPER SMOOCHES 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


This week I’ve used my favourite paper Smooches set of all time – Calorie Free.  I love the images in this set and particularly like the sushi one!  I was recently lucky enough to receive a GORGEOUS bouquet of flowers which were tied with a raffia bow.  I thought I could turn some of the raffia into a little sushi rolling mat so laid down some double sided tape and added strips  to it.  When I had enough down I trimmed down the side and added some black twine to finish it off.  For the sentiment (Japanese for Thank You I believe) I used Lawn Fawn’s Milo’s ABC’s.

Tie it Up
