just a little creative play time… and a give-away

with simonsaysstamp.com April kit that is full of Lawn Fawn papers + an exclusive stamp set. (note: on above card my stamping is crooked. ’tis not the stamp’s fault- I need to practice more stamping of words!)

I just love the polka dot tape, the flower punch, all that lovely green and purple… such a SPRING kind of a kit. Those 6×6 papers are great for scrapbooking too. And tags – you know I love my tags…

I have some serious spring fever.


Both projects were made with the April Simon Says Stamp kit – you can see more (and get your own) here.

 Or… would you like to win one? Simon Says Stamp is offering up one of these beautiful kits for one of my lovely blog readers. If you’d like the chance to win, leave a comment here and a winner will be drawn randomly this Thursday. Good luck!

  2. Love this kit! Was even thinking about getting it – thanks for the chance to win it from you!

  3. I love the kit and what you’ve done with it. You’ve inspired me to try a green & purple color combo on a layout soon. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  4. I would be beside myself if I won this kit. It is filled with my spring inspiration colors!!

  7. What a great opportunity to discover the SSS kits. It would be fantastic if a kit could find its way across the pond to my house in the South of France! Fingers crossed . . . .
    Greetings from France, and thank you for the fun offer —

  8. Love the card and tag, when I first read it I though it was a clever way of making a baby shower invitation.

  9. The colors ARE great!! And Spring seems to have arrived around here… not that winter was ever really here!

  12. We all need some playtime every once in a while…when we’re not making something for someone/some challenge, etc. These are fun, and I would LOVE to win that kit. Thanks for the chance!

  13. May, love the colors in this kit…I’m so ready for spring!! Since I have 2 grandsons I’m always looking for cute paper that isn’t too girlish. I think this fills the bill. Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. I love your umbrella stamped on patterned paper! (At least that’s what it looks like.) That’s one of my favorite techniques. One thing I learned about stamping less crooked with acrylic stamps, especially the long phrases, is to lay the uninked stamp on the project first, to position and straighten it, put the block on top, then ink it and stamp. Works pretty well, but a little crookedness adds personality.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. I absolutely love the tag! I live in Seattle, so anything with an umbrella on it is MINE…LOL. Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful kit.
