Simon Says Stamp~August card kit & a giveaway

Hello! Today I have a couple more projects to share using the August card kit from Simon Says Stamp. I created this fun background using the solid circle stamp from the stamp set included in the card kit.Simon Says Stamp~July card kitThe card kit stamp set also has this cute little stamp to put on the back of your projects for personalizing them.
Simon Says Stamp~July card kitΒ Next, I have a short little video showing what you can do with some of the gorgeous pattern papers included in the card kit.
Β 1. The fact that I said it was the July card kit…it’s the August card kit, and I’m just an airhead.
2. Don’t look at my messy house!
3. Just pretend that you didn’t see my daughter in her pajamas. I really do dress her…most of the time.
4. Pretend you didn’t see a quick glimpse of MY pajama pants either. I really do get dressed…almost never.

The flower was made with my Silhouette using a Lori Whitlock cut file.
Simon Says Stamp~July card kit The generous folks at Simon Says Stamp told me I could give away a card kit….WOOT!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Fun video! Your daughter is a budding musician. Adorable. Thanks for a chance to win the SSS kit. Looks like a good one.

  2. I’ve never ordered their kits and would love to see one at my house – it might get me into a habit! I loved your video; it may spur on a purchase of the envelope bd too!

  3. Laura, if I ever did videos…’d never see me in anything other than pajama pants!!! Love your video!!! πŸ˜‰

  4. Nice to see someone without a sterile, blah background to their videos. It makes me think I can do this, too. Great video, thanks for sharing!

  5. What a hoot you are. BTW, who gets totally dressed with little ones running all over the house? I never did. Also, how do you find the time to craft? Just sayin’. I had to throw all my kids out of the house to get 15 minutes of uninterupted time. Oh yes, thanks for the tutorial, I love the envelope maker too.

  6. You and your daughter are just too cute and so is your card and envelope!! Who knew that someone would invent a machine that would make it so easy for us crafters to make envelopes fast and simple? Well Bless them!

  7. Great card! Your stamping is so precise….I think I say that in every comment, and I loved the video. I have been known to go through the drive through in my pajamas……

  8. πŸ™‚ Love the video, cards, envelope and your sense of humor. Can’t wait to get my hands on the August card kit… to block and beat my head against the wall until some idea pops out πŸ™‚

  9. Just went back and watched the video since I have that board, but haven’t used it yet (it’s cool, by the way!) But I LOVE your laid back style – and your confidence that everything would work out and your ability to just roll with the additional sound track!

  10. OMG, your video is seriously fab! (so is the board and the envelope – so cool!)! I loved ALL of the added features…ha ha ha!!! My fave was the look on your face at the end – the expression was awesome!

  11. Bassen Production videos are always so entertaining! And thanks for enabling me to get that envelope punch board which I thought I wouldn’t need. Ever! Until now.

  13. Love the envelope board. It will be on my wish list! Now I know what I can do with that stash of paper that I can’t seem to use fast enough – make envelopes! Thanks for the video. Cute jammies. You are my kind of girl – pajama days are all the rage in my house!

    On to card and video – I’ve wondered how those envelope punch boards worked and now that I’ve seen your video I want one. And the card – really like it. Reminds me of some circle-y giftwrap I have and I love to make cards that match it when we use it for a gift. πŸ™‚
