Simon Says Guest Designer Tomorrow!

Good Morning Everybody!

Please join me tomorrow over at Simon Says Stamps blog to see my Guest Designer project and tutorial!

I was honored with being the guest designer for Simon Says Stamps this week!  Thanks Simon Says!  I had a blast with this challenge!!  The challenge for the design team was....To craft a project with heart.  So, I took it to heart and made a Tricycle Heart with mini....

Here's a sneak peek... 



A fast and easy altered art heart with a steampunk feel.  The heart box glides along on three pulley wheels.  Once the Bead Chain is “unhitched”, the inside reveals a little mini book perfect for pictures and memorabilia.

For more pictures and a tutorial on how to make this, please visit Simon Says Stamp's blog tomorrow morning, Wednesday, November 28th.

Thanks For Coming By!

  2. The whimsy of this piece is just amazing! I don't know how you manage to fit all of your fabulous ideas into one little head. I guess that's why you wear the top hat...to keep them from flying away. Seriously, Jim....you are crossing the border line from crafter to artist! I am so impressed!

  6. AWESOME! I love it Jim, can't wait to see the inside. Sorry to bring up your balding head, but I think I figured it out. You can't keep hair on top of your head because your mind is going 24/7 and the steam coming out of your head prevents the hair from growing. HA! Just my theory!

  19. Oh my Jim, you have been busy. I take a few days off, and just love all the goodies you have come up with. I enjoyed the Turkey so much, I can't wait to try my hand at the Christmas tree. I actually used a MS Punch on my turkey's rosettes, and found that it was much easier to punch the strips before scoring so that I could actually score down the centers of the punch pattern which is a little more then a half inch. That meant I had to move the paper slightly each time I scored, ( a little more effort), but so worth it in the end. I will probably do the same on the tree, and definitely seperate the layers like you did. Enjoyed the video with your Mom and Ceasar. Love your Mom - she is so cute!!!!! Thanks for the sneak peek of your altered heart on wheels. So darn cute, can't wait to see tomorrows blog.
