National Scrapbooking Month "Happy Times" Blog Hop

Welcome to our Happy Times Blog Hop!  On this hop we are showcasing artwork with Close To My Hear's National Scrapbook Month's exclusive paper packet called "Happy Times".  If you've come here from KRISTEN'S BLOG then you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  

I decided to do a one page, one picture layout of my beautiful step mom.  She looks so pretty next to the flowers we brought her last Mother's Day.  And these floral designs and pastel colored papers with a little hint of gold foil were perfect.  The coordinating stamp set works perfectly too.  I stamped the flower image and title and fussy cut them to add to the page.  

Before you hop on over to MICHELLE'S BLOG  to see her artwork I hope you'll check out my tips below and more details on how you can get this beautiful paper pack and stamp set for yourself.
Tip 1 - To fussy cut the title, I first stamped the sentiment then cleaned my stamp.  Then I put the clean stamp over the image and lightly traced the outline with a pencil.  I used the pencil line to fussy cut the title out.
Tip 2 - to save some of this beautiful paper I cut away some of it that was going to be layered over.  See the below picture.
