Simon Says: Explore the world



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

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

This week the challenge is

Explore The world

We live on a beautiful planet and we would love to see some sort of voyage of discovery.  You might like to make a winter wonderland project with the north and south poles as your inspiration, or maybe you would prefer to go on a desert safari or an underwater voyage of discovery. This challenge is open to so many different themes we will be looking forward to seeing what you make!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Andrea made a Magical Transport Box to take her anywhere in the world.  She used Paper Artsy’s Everything Art stamp set, My Favorite Thing’s Go With It stamp set and lots of fun patterned paper, like the Bloom collection from Crate Paper.


Anna-Karin started an album that will house some of her nature and wildlife photos. Graphic 45’s Safari range was perfect for this theme, and the album is a My Storybook Photo Journal by Echo Park.


Barbara takes her inspiration from new Tim Holtz Sizzix SNOWGLOBE. She’s created a big postacard with Tim Holtz Sizzix POSTAGE STAMP FRAME and  various layers of paper stash by Tim Holtz and Core’dinations.
