Let’s Start From Scratch!
Hello and happy Monday! We hope you all had an enjoyable weekend and got the chance to relax a bit and do the things you love to do! One of the things we love to do is craft, and the Monday Challenge group has a fun challenge this week that will definitely stretch those creative muscles! ;)
The challenge this week is to create something from scratch that you can use on your project. It can be an embellishment, a flower or anything else you can think of that starts as basic materials and turns into something fabulous!
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!
Don’t forget that when you enter your projects into the challenge, you have a chance to win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp!

I enjoy making my own die cut flowers especially roses made using the Tattered Pinecone die. I didn’t stop there, I also decorated the tag with a homemade butterfly and heart embellishment.

I had a lot of fun making this card and got to use 2 recent purchases, Random Quotes and Artful Tools. I love the photo of the cute vintage couple in the Custom Fastener too and Hero Arts winter trees is another new stamp that I using for the first time today.

One of the most versatile die sets I own is Lifestyle Crafts’ matchbook die set. I love to make cute little notes that flip open. For these matchbooks, I used the following fabulous paper collections: Wallflower, Madame Payraud, and Maritime.
