National Scrapbooking Month ~ Happy Times Blog Hop

May is National Scrapbooking Month and do we have a great special for you!
We have a paper pack called Happy Times with 12 patterns 4 of which have gold! There is also a matching stamp set called Happy Times that you'll love, too! So let's get started!

If you're coming from Alyson Mayo's blog you're doing fine. Just click the links at the end of each post to continue along on the hop!

My first card was inspired by Debbi Fournier. I just loved the folded back edge and had to re-create it for myself! This card uses both the Happy Times paper and stamp set.



All products are Close To My Heart:
--Happy Times paper and stamp set
--Cardstock: Pomegranate, White Daisy
--Ink: Smoothie, Pomegranate, Fern



I also wanted to try a Pinterest inspired card using the Happy Times stamp set. The papers are from La Vie En Rose and really make the colors pop! In the first card the flowers are Gypsy and Thistle with Fern stems. In the second card the flowers are 1st and 2nd generation Hollyhock with Fern stems. Each panel is bordered with Silver Foil Tape.




All products are Close To My Heart:
--Happy Times stamp set
--Finding the Words stamp set
--La Vie En Rose paper pack
--Cardstock: White Daisy, Fern
--Ink: Gypsy, Thistle, Fern, Hollyhock
--ShinHan Markers (to color sparkles): Peony Purple, Carmine

If you have any questions I'm here to help.

  11. Gosh! Your cards are beautiful. I love the folded back card - because I love that polka dot on the back side of the floral paper. And the silver foil and random stamped cards are so elegant. Thanks for the inspiration.
