Hi everyone! Today we are going green at Simon Says Stamp & Show, with our challenge Good to be Green. Lots of opportunities here, use the colour green, upcycle something, do a project about nature, etc. I made a green ruler binder book, also including some recycled elements.
When thinking about what to do this week, my eyes fell on Tim Holtz new Ruler Binder and I decided to make a tag book about my school years. I've saved a lot of copies of the small versions we used to get of our school photos, as well as photo booth photos, and decided to use them all in the same place, some other photos are used in the book too. Some of these were traded, but I was careful to keep quite a few copies myself. I love mini-books for these types of themed projects. I used almost only shades of green, with a little bit of kraft and gold.
Two of the letters were stapled to the cover, with a Tim Holtz rub-on on top. I used his rub-ons throughout the book, they are perfect for small spaces.
Close-up of a packaging number. They were glued by spreading a thin layer of Glossy Accents at the back.
Show us a new project with something green this week and you can be the lucky one to win a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp, drawn randomly.
Have you seen the new feature of Simon's Spotlight? The design team has lots of fun every week picking out fabulous projects to feature.
Thank you for looking!!
