What’s your Happiest Place?
Where is your happiest place? This collection is filled with papers and decorative cardstock to help you highlight your happy places. The colours are bright and cheery and the patterns adapt to so many different places and photo themes.
My current happy places include picnics in National Parks, our home, friend’s homes and the WA Ballet centre. All these places have made me happy over the past few weeks. My FAVOURITE place is anywhere my family is – currently that’s on video calls!
Remember a special birthday
Our soon to be son-in-law turned 30 on the weekend. Sadly, he and my daughter are in lock down and had to celebrate alone. So many friends and family members got in touch to help make his day special. This layout features some of the photos shared on the day.
Make It From Your Heart
Once again, I reached for my copy of Make It From Your Heart, Vol 3 for a layout pattern. This time I used Pattern 2. I replaced the solid block (Pieces B & E) with ¾” x 6” strips of the embossed stars cardstock. You need 7 strips each in 3 colours. One strip is cut in half long ways (Glacier in my example)
Hooray for Today
The layout didn’t need much more in the way of embellishments. The title is cut using the Hooray for Today layered Thin Cuts. It’s bold and sparkly thanks to the silver glitter paper.
The Candy Apple Shimmer brush provided some splatters and the hearts and dots came from my stash. It’s well worth rummaging through your embellishments occasionally – you often find exactly what you need tucked away and long forgotten!

The Happiest Place collection is available, while stocks last, until the end of August, 2020.
