So Much Happy Papers for the Texas Blues

This is the last of my layouts using So Much Happy papers. This layout is for Texas blue bonnet flowers. The papers are only available till April 30th 2019. I'm using them to start creating travel layouts for our RV road trips.The layout is from the my Make It From the Heart vol 1 book with the help of the "Hello USA" Cricut cartridge. How perfect to have all the states with the logos and state flower. I decided I will be making an album using all the states so we can check them off after a visit. I love the font on this cartridge for the names of the states! With all the elements, there are 5 layers for Texas but the digital cartridge makes it so easy do. 



Here is my close up of Texas:

An Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Using So Much Happy Papers


I am still using the So Much Happy papers. This time I did the sketch 310 from the Atlantic Hearts. I do like this sketch and because of the leaf fronds, I got encouraged to look at my Flower Market Cricut cartridge to see what I could find. That's what I love about the challenges. Not only do they give you a pattern to create something but in the pattern are elements to seek out in your stash. It could be a stamp or stickers or die cuts or in this case for me, one of my cartridges. So thank you Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for the encouragement to stretch some. Maybe you should call yourselves the Atlantic Hearts Stretch Challenge!!! ;-)


Here is my card:

More So Much Happy and Off We Go!


Here is my second travel layout using the So Much Happy Scrapbooking Workshop kit. I basically followed the instructions in the guide for this layout. 
There are some perfect diecuts and cutouts for a travel layout so I am taking advantage of that to continue to create pages for a travel album. 

The You Are Here Cricut cartridge is perfect to help me make the pages. It's a great cartridge that gives almost any kind of vacationing activities and places to visit cuts. The National Parks are well represented in our cartridges which is great because they are on our bucket list.

Here are some of the supplies I used:

  1. You Are Here Cricut cartridge
  2. Artbooking Cricut cartridge
  3. So Much Happy Workshop
  4. Aluminum Rail Paper Cutter 
  5. MicroTip Scissors

So Much Happy-Road Trip!


This is another layout using the So Much Happy Scrapbooking Workshop kit. I decided to come up with my own design and not go by all the instructions in the guide for this layout. I've also decided to start making an album of travel layouts for Jim's and my RV trips. Jim has the RV almost completed with all the changes he wanted to get done before any big trips. The last thing is installing solar panels on the roof. 

The You Are Here Cricut cartridge will be perfect to help me make the pages. It's a great cartridge that gives almost any kind of vacationing activities and places to visit cuts. National Parks, Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House, Big Ben, four wheeling, mountain climbing, you name it!

Here are some of the supplies I used:

  1. You Are Here Cricut cartridge
  2. Artbooking Cricut cartridge
  3. So Much Happy Workshop
  4. Aluminum Rail Paper Cutter 
  5. MicroTip Scissors

So Much Happy March 2019 Sketchy Challenge

Creative Scrapbooker Magazine freely provides us with their "Sketchy Challenge" every month. I love doing these challenges and get inspired by them. Close To My Heart's So Much Happy papers are available in the Jan-April 2019 Seasonal Catalog were a perfect inspiration for me to make a scrapbook page that I could use for spring flower pictures. You can see the layouts on the Creative Scrapbooker's Facebook page at:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/2164958267106146/



This is the March 2019 Sketchy Challenge from the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine:



Here is my interpretation of the sketch using the So Much Happy papers:


The Flower Market Cricut cartridge gave me the flowers I needed to create a cheery spring flower page for my Texas Blue Bonnet pictures. The banner and title Springtime along with the blue bonnet and daffodils were cut using this cartridge. The flowers and all the layers were cut at 3 1/4 ". Once you decide what height of flower you want, all the pieces (layers) use the same measurement.  

Supply List:
  1. Flower Market cartridge
  2. So Much Happy Workshop Your Way
  3. So Much Happy Coordinating cardstock
  4. Glue Stick
  5. Foam Dots
Hope you enjoyed the video!
