Welcome to the CTMH Australasian So Much Happy Blog Hop. This hop features the artwork of some talented women from across Australia and New Zealand.
If you arrived from Megan’s blog you are in the right place. If this is your first time on a blog hop simply read on, enjoy my creations and maybe share your response in the comments. Then you click on the link at the end of this post and it will take you to the next blog and so on and so on. Easy and fun! Best part- you can see lots of different projects you can create with Close To My Heart’s So Much Happy collection. When you land back here, you are done and it’s time to hit the scrapbook room for some crafting fun.
The So Much Happy collection is available until the end of April 2019. Buy it as a full kit or purchase individual items. Close To My Heart have a BOGO special during March. You could buy the paper pack and pair it with the co-ordinating cardstock for half price. Ask your consultant for details.
This really is such a happy collection! The Lemon and Candy Apple papers really pop. The subtler hues of Lagoon, Mint and Peach compliment perfectly and the Sapphire makes a great neutral. As with all our paper collections, each sheet is double sided and a really bright or busy pattern will be backed by a softer shade or subtle pattern. This means EVERYONE can use it.
Today I am sharing a layout featuring some fabulous time exposure shots my husband took of a ferris wheel. Each year Perth, Western Australia, hosts a Fringe Festival. It is vibrant, fun and engaging. We try to go to 3 or 4 shows a week to make the most of it. There is a little ferris wheel in the arts centre hub that most people ignore. This night, Mike came armed with a tripod and had some shutter fun.
The spiral circle was made using quilting templates! I am working (very slowly) on Judy Newman’s Sugarplum quilt and had been using the spiral template earlier with fabric. Once I pulled out my photos I knew the design was perfect for my page too.
The title banner and centre circle can be found on the cut apart sheet which is the reverse side of the cute diamond print paper used in the spiral. The largest stitched circle thin cut fits the ‘One of a Kind’ embellishment perfectly. Complete the title using the gorgeous alphabet stickers that come in the So Much Fun complements and add stars from the puffies and complements.
This was a really quick layout as the second page had minimal decoration on it. Just the photos in all their colourful glory. You can find details of the journaling box in an earlier post here
