Happy Times NSM Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop! If you've arrived from  { Jeanie Burch's blog } you are on the right track. Today approximately 31 Close to my Heart consultants will be showcasing different ways to use the Happy Times paper kit OR Happy Times stamp set

My project is a two page layout featuring both Happy Times specials! I love how versatile the colors are in this paper pack. It was actually kind of hard picking which patterns to use for this layout, lol! I did want the colors to pop so I opted for neutral Kraft Cardstock base pages.

The title was created by combining a few of the sentiments from the Happy Times stamp set. I love the handwritten style of the font and think it adds a touch of whimsy to the layout. 

I didn't want to overpower the layout with embellishments so I kept it pretty simple with a few stamped flowers and leaves. Since the Happy Times kit includes two gorgeous gold foil striped papers I chose to accent the layout with gold foil embellishments from the Basic Paper Fundamentals sticker sheets and a few gold sequins. I'm planning on saving this layout for a fun summer recap layout and will share when the photos are added. 

As a reminder the Happy Times paper and stamp set are only available until May 31 or until supplies run out. The paper packet can be purchased for $14.95 or get it for FREE with a qualifying CTMH order. The stamp set is also available for purchase. To purchase the supplies used on the layout please contact your CTMH consultant or visit my web store { HERE }.

Now, it's time to continue to hop to { Jean McNulty's blog }I'd love to know what you think of my layout so please leave me a comment. I love reading them! 

Happy Crafting!
