Happy Day

Happy Day

It’s a happy day when I get to use my scraps.   At the end of a pack, I always have some scraps, don’t you?  Here’s a card using those scraps up. I used scraps from the Central Park paper along with some scraps for my scrap bucket to make this card.

There’s a sheet in each paper pack that has these great cards on it formats, titles, and journaling. With one of them I created this “Happy Day” card. It has a fun watercolor balloon on it and says happy day. Using some scrap background and texture paper to help create the base, some scraps of cranberry and gold glitter paper, this came together fairly quickly.

Embellish with some leftover Central Park sequins and put gold glitter gems in the middle of the sequins. The background paper is Linen, which is a gray color. The gray twine helps pull that in. The gold shimmer brush adds some flare to the balloon.

July things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Enjoy the Happy Day card and try to use those scraps up!

Whimsical Day To Remember

Whimsical Day To Remember

Here’s a card I created using some scraps from the Whimsy Fundamental Paper Pack scraps, the July Stamp of the Month (SOM) S1807 Highlight Reel, and miscellaneous ribbon scraps.  My scrap box is getting pretty heavy and I need to start creating from this to start using it up (or donate it to the school again).   I have a few packs of the Fundamentals that I’ve used for various projects with some leftovers.

Start off with a black base.  Take a few stripes of scraps that work together and cut them down to 5″.  The width was based on what they already were in the scrap bucket.  Distress with matching ink.

Use two different ribbon scraps to add some elements and dimension to the card.  Stamp and cut out the sentiment from the July SOM.  Mount on 3D Foam Tape.  Use the Gold Shimmer brush over the top of the sentiment to tie in the gold from the ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Have a Whimsical Day to Remember.  Be creative.  It’s cheaper than therapy, LOL.

Be Happy with Live Beautifully

Be Happy with Live Beautifully

Here’s the first layout of this wonderful workshop that you can get free when you order $25.00 or more on my website!  A list of the supplies is available on my website here. The pictures don’t really do the layout justice.

I made my pages with gold and silver glitter paper because, initially, I only had the silver glitter paper.  When I got the gold glitter paper in, I decided to add some extra hearts in. In the end, I like having a combo instead.  The CTMH heart dies make it really easy to create different sized hearts with the same shape (hearts can have different shapes). Size and layering are important in having this work well.

The title of the pages comes from the My Girl set of compliments:

This is really a fun set of compliments.  Full of goodness and sayings you can use beyond a girl.  I think this is a great graduation saying.  What kid at high school graduation isn’t happy, to at least be done with school, and has big dreams?  SG is going to be testing for her yellow belt and is super excited.  I can’t wait to capture her face when she passes her test!


Here’s the 2nd page:

More hearts and and titles with fun glitter embellishments.  The black paper with the white rose outline looks really good on the black cardstock.  I like how the papers pop on black.  Don’t forget to use your zip strips!  Little borders can add a lot to the page.

Way To Go

Way To Go:

I’m loving the way the Adventure colors just pop out at you when they are used on the black cardstock!  I just ordered some more black cardstock in to create some layouts I like it so much.

These hearts are made from the heart thin cuts Z3260. When you use them, you’ll get the heart and an outline of a heart which is what I used on this card – two outlines.  You can use the hearts on another project.  The three different sizes allow you to use scraps.  Another great way to reduce the scrap-bucket.  =)  There are three different sized hearts.

Here’s a great video about how to use these stand alone thin cuts:

I also love this new embossing folder with the words on Z3249 Happy Thoughts.  They are great for this card.  You can create a fun backgrounds with this folder.  It’s can be the background of a card, photo mat, or even a panel on a scrapbook page.



Most of the pieces of this card can come from your scrap-bucket as well.  Love the layered pennants.  This is a great card for your husband, friend, child, pastor.  Whenever you want to celebrate someone’s accomplishments or even someone making it through a tough time in life.  D1700 Way To Go is a great stamp set to add to your collection.

Don’t forget about our awesome Welcome Home Wreath kit that’s $18.95 or FREE with a $60.00 order!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


Chocolate with Happy Times

Who would think Chocolate would work with Happy Times?  After I made a layout with our Kraft papers, I tried Chocolate and I think it works well!
