CTMH Happiest Place Australasian Blog Hop

Hi & welcome to our CTMH Happiest Place Australasian Blog Hop! If you arrived from Shaunna's blog, you are in the right place! If you arrived from elsewhere, I hope you will continue to hop around to see what the rest of the team has created using this beautiful Happiest Place Collection!

I have only had my collection for a few days, so haven't had much of a chance to create yet, but here are my first four projects!

My first layout was inspired by fellow consultant, Brenda Rose. I am still waiting to print photos from my daughter's birthday last month to add to the page! To create the layout, I used Black, Glacier & White Daisy cardstock; Happiest Place paper pack & stickers; Happiest Place Coordinating Cardstock' Z3714 - Hooray for Today Thin Cuts & Silver Glitter Gems. I used some 3D Foam Tape to add some dimension to the layout! I can't wait to add my photos!

For my first card, I made a slim-line card using Black, Candy Apple, Glacier, Lemonade & White Daisy cardstock, Happiest Day paper pack & the Happiest Place Digital Art Designs (for the balloons). I once again added some 3D Foam Tape for dimension behind the balloons. 

For this very simple card, I used White Daisy & Black Cardstock, Z3714 - Hooray for Today Thin Cuts, CC7206 - Happiest Place Stamp & Thin Cuts, Candy Apple, Glacier & Lemonade ink pads with 3D Foam Tape behind the bigger stars.  

The last project I want to share with you is one with pics of our gorgeous, but naughty, cat. The layout was inspired by one I created at the recent (in May this year) Close To My Heart Virtual Album Retreat. To create this layout, I used White Daisy, Black, Candy Apple, Glacier & Lemonade cardstock, Happiest Place Paper Pack, Happiest Place Coordinating Cardstock, CC7206 - Happiest Place Stamp & Thin Cuts, Black, Candy Apple, Glacier & Lemonade ink pads,  Silver Loose Sequins, Diamonds Stickles and Cricut Alphabet Circles font for the title. 
The squares on the top and bottom of the page are 2.25" circles with a 1.5" square scored in the centre, then the edges of the circles folded over. I stamped in some of the circles, added printed paper in others, sequins in some and stickles in one. All sorts of embellishments could be added to the squares!

The Happiest Place collection is available till the end of August WSL. Contact your consultant today to order yours, or if you live in Australia and don't have a consultant, I would love to help you. You can find all the details for this collection and more on my website!

The COVID-19 pandemic has definitely changed a lot about our daily lives, and we know that crafters everywhere want to be able to account for and respond to those changes in our crafting! That’s why we’ve designed the My Acrylix®  stamp sets and some FREE SVG files to go with it. Use these items to preserve memories, make thoughtful cards, and incorporate current events into whatever craft projects you are working on. You can find all the info and the FREE SVG Files on my  website here (or contact your consultant). 

Don't forget to continue on our blog hop to see what Dannii from Scrappy Chics has created using the Happiest Place Collection!

Stay safe & well. 

Happy crafting.
