Happiest Place – mine is creating with paper!

Happiest Place

My happy Place is whenever I sit down to craft with paper, be it creating a scrapbook page, a card or anything. I love to create.

And now I get to create with this fab Disney inspired (but it is so much more than Disney) Happiest Place Collection that is super bright & fun & will help you create truly magical artwork.

The Happiest Place collection includes a whole suite of coordinating products, including an extra-large paper packet with 12 patterned paper sheets!

Your projects will shine thanks to silver glitter foil accents on coordinating stickers and Happiest Place Coordinating Cardstock. Add in stamps, acrylic shapes, SVG’s, and an 8½″ × 11″ Happiest Place Cut Above® Layout Kit  and you have the recipe for hours of unforgettable crafting fun!

Happiest Place Scrapbooking & Cardmaking Papercraft Collection

Lets start off with the Happiest Place Cut Above® Layout Kit. In this scrapbooking kit you get materials to create the pages of an 8½” × 11″ album! AND bonus – No fussy-cutting required! – though I do like to fussy cut.

Close To My Bring Back My Pack – Brushed Australasian Blog Hop

Australasian Blog Hop

A Happy Hello and welcome aboard our Bring Back My Pack – Brushed Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from Lauren Moore – CTMH Craftings then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

The last time we had the Brushed Paper Collection it was 2014. I recall you could get a Scrapbooking kit that included a stamp set – which I realy like so I had to get the scrapbooking kit. Now it is back with the colours updated slightly to go with our new colours & it now comes with a sticker sheet that we never had before.

I decided that I would do some fussy cutting on the watercoloured look flowers & leaves.

I used the Candy Apple Spotted paper & the Lagoon leaf print paper & added a strip of Lagoon cardstock & some Dreamy Holographic Paper (seriously this stuff is amazing & you only need a little bit) as my background to my fussy cut flowers.

I then stamped For You from the Stitched Together – Cardmaking stamp set & nestled in the flowers & leaves. And added a final touch of Diamond Stickles™ Glitter Gel to the flower centres.

I thought it was fun to play with Brushed Paper Collection again & boy have I changed how I make things compared to way back in 2014.

I would love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Shaunna Richards – Passionate About Pages

Enjoy the hop & thanks so much for taking the time to check out these ideas with this month’s feature.

A Happy Hello and welcome aboard our Cardstock Carnival Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

Right now you can enjoy monthlong savings on cardstock in all the colours of the rainbow!Cardstock Carnival – cardstock is a crafting essential that you can never have too much of!

My first idea combines the blue & the green-blue cardstock bundles to create a gradient effect in just cardstock for my sea background for this Birthday Fishes card.

I cut my cardstock to form a banner & and cut waves through it – I done this on my cricut so I knew the pieces would fit back together like a puzzle. I stamped the larger bubbles in White Daisy, these did not show up as much as I wanted on the Mint, so that is why I decided to use the Liquid Glass, but I did not want to do all the bubbles, so only done a couple. Then I added my fussy cut & coloured fish & saying. It was an easy card to come together & I loved how the background was done with coloured cardstock instead of sponging.

My next card I done a couple of different techniques onto the cardstock & cut them in a way to draw attention to the main image.

On the green cardstock I stamped on the lighter side & edged with ink. On the yellow I did stamp onto it, but it was harder to tell. And on the red I embossed the cardstock with the Celebrate Embossing Folder as I noticed it had Fun Times & I wanted that to appear with the Van.

Other than that I coloured my van, though I think next time I use a brighter blue to go with the brighter colour cardstock – but hey you sometimes don’t notice these things till later but I

I had lots of fun creating with Close To My Heart Cardstock which is on special right now, and I would love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Danielle Edwards – Scrappychicks
