May 2016 in National Scrapbooking Month

To celebrate National Scrapbooking Month Close To My Heart created the Happy Times, a paper packet (CC1063) and coordinating D-size stamp set (CC1064).

The Happy Times paper packet features 14 exclusive B&T Duos™, including four papers with gold foil designs. I wish the photos showed the gold foil details better. The papers are simply beautiful. During the month of May and while supplies last, this paper pack can you yours free with a qualifying purchase of $60 (before tax and shipping). There is no limit on the number of free Happy Times paper packets you can qualify for in a single order. You can also purchase the paper pack for $14.95 with no minimum purchase required (and this purchase counts toward a qualifying purchase).

CTMH also created this coordinating D-size stamp set, My Acrylix® Happy Times (CC1064) to go with the paper packet.

The stamp set includes 18 images. You can purchase the stamp set for $17..95 (no qualifying purchase needed). The recommended My Acrylix® block sizes are: 1" x 1" (Y1000), 1" x 3½" (Y1002), 2" x 2" (Y1003) and 2" x 3½" (Y1009). Purchase of the stamp set counts toward the qualifying purchase to get the paper pack for free.

I am participating in a blog hop where we feature items we create using the Happy Times paper packet and/or stamp set. You will find my post here on May 7. Please visit my Pinterest Board CTMH Promo Happy Times for additional ideas using this paper pack and stamp set.

CTMH put together this video with even more inspiration.
