The theme over on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "Little Paper". As I'm not a scrapbooker I rarely, if ever, work to a 12x12 inch format so 6x6 pads where the design has been shrunken down frequently work better for me. Take the cover of this mini art journal for example - if I'd used the 12x12 version of this paper (from the Destinations pad) it wouldn't have looked nearly so effective! That's one of the reasons I like Tim Holtz's paper pads so much, they include 12x12 and 6x6 versions of the same design - so versatile.
I've prepared a template that you can use if you wish to make one of these yourself. Print it out with a width of 5 inches and everything will be to the correct size. The pages I've used for the inside are 4 7/8 by 5 1/4 inches. I've also created a video tutorial for this, which I'm still editing. You should be able to find it here in a day or two, along with an itemised supplies list with sizes, so check back! :)
Supplies I used included:
Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week, just make something for the challenge and you could the winner! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)
