National Scrapbooking Month Happy Times Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Scrapbooking Month Happy Times Blog Hop. This month there are approximately 30 bloggers participating in the hop. We try to keep our hop simple - just keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next stop. Our hop is circular so visiting the next blog will take you back to where you started.

You should have arrived here from ***Show and Tell, with Michelle Loncar***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

For National Scrapbooking Month Close To My Heart created Happy Times. A paper packet and stamp set are available.

Happy Times Paper Packet (CC1063)
My Acrylix® Happy Times (CC1064)

You can purchase the paper packet for $14.95 with no minimum purchase required or receive it for free with a qualifying purchase of $60 (before tax and shipping). The D-sized stamp set if $17.95 and purchasing it counts toward your qualifying purchase.

The stamp set includes 18 images and the recommended My Acrylix® block sizes are: 1" x 1" (Y1000), 1" x 3½" (Y1002), 2" x 2" (Y1003) and 2" x 3½" (Y1009).

For this hop I also used the "Happy Birthday" from the May Stamp of the Month and created a card.

I hope you like my card. I struggled with it a bit which meant I had to take this photo after the natural light was gone. I probably should have sat out this hop as I have not been feeling well, but it was too late and I did not want to let anyone down by not having a post ready. I hope I do not let any visitors down with this card.

Before you head to ***Paige Dolecki - Stampologist***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not working with a CTMH Independent Consultant yet, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Online Business Address.

I love to hear what people think of my projects, so if you have a moment I would be delighted if you would leave a comment. So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Paige Dolecki - Stampologist***.

I hope you are enjoying the hop.


  1. Cute! I love how versatile this paper is and how varied everyone's projects look

  2. Cute card - clean and simple. The red really pops against the green background. Nicely done.

  3. I love this card! Great use of the ombre effect on the paper! I just love all the details!

  4. I still think your card is beautiful with the pops of ribbon!

  5. Great card! I love how you combined the SOTM sentiment and the Happy Times sentiment. I'm glad you were able to participate in the hop and hope you are feeling better.


Thank you for leaving a comment! I enjoy reading them.
