Travelers Notebook: Simon Says Stamp Challenges

It was time to get my craft on. As usual I turned to the Simon Says Stamp challenge sites to direct my creative play. The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Touchy Feely and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is Emboss It.

I pulled out my new WRMK Frame punch board and when I opened the packaging it had a double chipboard frame in it. Waste not, want not. I cut the image out of the filled frame and looked through my small photos to fill the places. I chose an instax print of a resetgirl instagram post and a photo of me after a Clinique Makeover. I decided to put it in my Travelers Notebook which had my creations for interNational Scrapbook Day from May in it.


Here's the close up:


For the embossed stamp on vellum, I used a brand new peach embossing powder from Altenew that I got as part of my prize I won from them. It is really lovely, almost like rose gold.  I also put down some new washi I bought at K Mart recently.  I didn't know they had a good range of cheap scrapbooking supplies (and the marble contact cover I've been looking for).
