Happy Times Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from Creating with Kara Davies then you are in the right place.

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s May Paper Packet, Happy Times. This beautiful paper pack is only available for the month of May, and features 12 sheets of intricately designed patterned paper. You can purchase this paper packet for $25.50NZD, or receive it for FREE with a qualifying order of $95.

This Paper Packet was perfect for scrapbooking a scrapbook retreat I recently went to!

I love the stamp set flowers as they can be layered to create beautiful embellishments for your page.I also used the gold zip strip as a border for my page, as the gold is very striking in real life!

I paired the paper with the Zoe Complements such as this journaling box and speech bubble.

The Create title is from the Adventure Fundamental Stickers, paired with a stamped sentiment.

I used scraps of my paper to create some banners on the page, as these help to draw your eye into the photos.

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Maz's Inky Fingers.
