This week the Monday challenge group is letting us decide what to create with the popular “Anything Goes” challenge! Pick a theme, some favourite colors or maybe grab those products you’ve been meaning to try but just haven’t yet! We’d love to see what’s inspiring you this week!

Below are three projects created by the design team. The rest can be found on the Monday Challenge team blog here and if you click on each designers name, you’ll be taken directly to their blog where you’ll get more details about their project!

I seem to be getting ahead of my seasons. But when you have such great stamps – who can help it? I enjoyed playing with distress ink and the new Tim Holtz Halloween stamps and ended up creating two cards. Not bad for what began as a creative session just messing around and testing out new ideas!

Anna-Karin had this to say:

I was inspired to use some of the new Simon Says Stamp Exclusive stamps, dies and stencils to create a little page in memory of childhood summer camping trips. The Waves stencil also looked a little like hills to me and I liked the green hills made with the stencil and White Embossing Paste. The rest of the scene was created with stamps and dies, adding some fun ice cream cone trees.

Remember the good-ole days when recipes came from books? I love the Simon Says Stamp Bookmark It Die. It’s sweetly curved shape creates fun bookmarks in seconds. The Waffle Flower Loved Set adds floral fun, while the Retro Kitchen Set Embossing Folder lends it kitschy-kitchen charm.
