Happiness Lives Here

Hello and welcome aboard our “Happiness Lives Here” Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Lauren’s 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. 

Today I would like to share with you a couple of cards which feature Close To My Heart’s January featured collection “Happiness Lives Here”.

This first card uses some left over Mix Ins from the Nov/Dec catalogue combined with the Happiness Lives here stickers (from the Paper Pack that comes with the sticker sheet) and some of the Happiness Lives Here Wood Shapes. This was a fun quick card that I made as a Congratulations for a friend having a baby girl.

Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I love to use up the scraps to create cards and layouts. So this selection of cards is no different. Made using the left overs that I had after creating both the Happiness Lives Here Scrapbook Workshop and Cardmaking Workshop kits.

A very simple design – the centre piece could be either a neutral pattern or white daisy cardstock 3 3/4″ x 5″. I started with the bottom left corner and glued down strips of left over pattern papers and coordinating cardstock on the diagonal. The I did the top left corner on the opposite diagonal. Turn your rectangle over and trim of the overhang. Adhere to the card base and add a sentiment/embellishments as desired.

This exclusive “Happiness Lives Here” collection is only available until the end of February, WSL. The Scrapbooking Workshop can be yours for just $62.  Individual components can also be ordered from your CTMH Maker. If you do not have a Maker please contact me or place an order here.

If you’d like to get a 15% spending credit back on all your orders be sure to sign up as a CTMH VIP Customer with your CTMH Maker. If you don’t have a Maker you can sign up as a VIP with me here.

I’d love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Doris.

Until next time,

Happy Crafting

    Great ways to use up all the scraps that I always accumulate. I especially like the first card.
