Anything Goes

We are showcasing Avery Elle 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


I’m SO excited this week to be featuring Avery Elle on our projects.  I also couldn’t help myself and picked one of the new stamp sets I designed for the latest release!  As a child I remember being mesmerised by the old glass ornaments on my Gran’s tree.  I particularly loved the ones with the indents like little sparkly fairy caves!!  That’s what I was trying to recreate with this set and I love how the font adds to the retro feel.  Of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without some glitter so I added some some nice chunky crystals to the edges of the ornaments.  Ahhh, I LOVE Christmas 🙂

    I love this stamp set so much! It reminds me of my Grandma’s tree as well – she had one of those fake silver tinsel trees which probably started my love affair with Glitter and Bling! A great set and will be my very first Avery Elle purchase.

  9. Your ornaments look like real, it is amazing! Yes They bring memories to me too!
