Simon Says Stamp's Anything BUT a Card Challenge

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my first post as a Simon Says Stamp Challenge Design Team member! :)

Boy was this first one ever a challenge for me! I am NOT a home decor paper crafter. My crafting tends to be very two dimensional. ;) I thought about what to make for quite a while and decided to turn to my trusty Silhouette library to see if anything there inspired me. I found this adorable strawberry and thought I'd make a basketful of berries. Then it dawned on me that I had spent a good part of last week making strawberry jam and I came up with this:

I had so much fun with with this week's challenge and can't wait to see what you all come up with. :) As always, the wonderful Heidi is giving away a $50 Simon Says Stamp gift voucher. I hope you'll play along with us this week!

And before I go I just wanted to let you know that a FABULOUS Blog Hop to celebrate the launch of the new Simon Says Stamp Exclusives Dies starts today !! You will need to hop over to the Simon Says Stamp Blog to join in the FUN !! There will be LOTS of fabulous prizes!! :-)


Thanks so much for stopping by!

What a good idea! I'm glad to know that this challenge threw quite a few of us out of our comfort zones :)) Is that freezer jam? Haven't made that in years, but it is SO good! Beautiful packaging, my friend, makes it even more special!

Oh gosh, your paper strawberries are just the cutest thing! I simply have to try that! Thanks for inspiring!
