Echo Park - Chillingsworth Manor


Can you believe that Halloween is just around the corner?... I am just shocked when I go out to the store and the Halloween stuff is already marked down and the Christmas stuff has been up for some time now. 

This week I was given the oh so awesome Echo Park - Chillingsworth. Some really like it and others are unsure how they feel about it. I myself love it. 

Here is what I came up with. 




I cut the hunted house using the Silhouette and made sure to roof the house using the Chillingsworth paper. There are also some steps covered with the paper pack and stickers from the collection pack. 

I really enjoyed working with this paper pack that I might be able to squeak a few more things out of it. 

Make sure to check out all the Happenings at Scrap Happy and enter to be on the mailing list for all the up to the minute information. 

Blessings -

The Determined Scrapper - Design Team



Ok, so I finished this last week and I have been a little behind getting things up on the blogs and everywhere else. Sorry everyone. 

This card was made using the For the Record Documented by Echo Park. I also used the saying tag from Jillibean's new release. The banner tails were cut using Scrap Happy Die

This is a simple yet useful card for any occasion. 

Hope you enjoy this card. I can't wait to show you the project I'm currently working on for design team.... You are going to love it.

Summer Fun Kit


Hi Scrappers!!!!!

  Susie gave all of us on the design team the same "Summer Fun Kit", and asked us to create something.  Since creating something is what we do best. I think all of us agreed that these are not papers that we would have chosen but it was challenging and I truly enjoyed doing my first layout ever.  I hope you like it!!!  All items used for this layout are available in the Scrap Happy Ohio Store.

Summer's coming to a close but American Craft's Shoreline is still HOT!

This month Susie gave each member on the Design Team the EXACT SAME ITEMS to work with, so if you are seeing a little redundancy of product, don't adjust your screen, all is well :) .  It's because August has been a busy month for all of us, vacations, moving, sending children back to school, etc., but it is also a month of transition, out with the old and in with the new, all the new goodies from CHA are coming in daily and Susie has clearanced out tons of wonderful older items, up to 50% off.  Let me tell you, I'm no dummy, I took advantage of those deals and already have my eyes set on all the new stuff, !  Speaking of, have you heard and seen all the new Scrap Happy Exclusive stamps and stamp sets?  Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas/Winter, Birthday.  OMG, so much beautious rubber and acrylic to ink up.  If you haven't please check them all out, HERE!

Okay, onto my Design Team project using American Crafts' Shoreline collection.  A beautiful, Summery line with bold colors, very gender neutral and lots of fun, I just can't get enough of the cutesy flip flops, surfboards, and bicycles scattered throughout the collection.  Below is a close-up of my project.  I did a card and a little gift bag with a pocket on the front to house the card I made!  Isn't it cute?
I used both the 6x6 pad and 12x12 collection pack to complete this project. 
 For the card I used Scrap Happy Sno Cone card base and covered the front completely with the designer paper.  I then cut a smaller piece of white cardstock, inked the edges in Scrap Happy Blue Raspberry Ink making it look almost like a sky.  I used the brand new Scrap Happy Thanksgiving stamp set for my sentiment, cut three sets of banners from the Scrap Happy Rounded Banner Trio Die lined them up and marked in pencil where I wanted the string.  I then used my We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy basic head to poke the holes for the banner then sewed it with coordination Sew Easy thread in Watermelon.  Glued everything on then added two Basic Grey brads tied a couple small ribbons, placed the rosette from the collection to mimic a sun and I was all done!
For the bag I inked the edges in Scrap Happy Blue Raspberry Ink adhered some coordinating paper, punched an edge with my EK Success Large Scallop Border punch and made a pocket to fit my card inside.  The card had so much dimension I didn't want to squash it in an envelope so I thought it would be cute, since they match to stick it in front.  I again added a larger rosette from the collection on the opposite corner as I did on the card.  Easy Peasy and so cute.
This is a picture of the bag....
 And this shows a close-up of my card actually inside the pocket on the bag.


Okay, there you have it, my quick and easy project for this week :)  It will be in store for your viewing pleasure later this week.

One last thing before I retire for the night, we were also asked to submit a little Bio so to make things more smooth I shall add it to the end of this.  Have a great night and a Scrap Happy Day!

Design Team Bo Bunny - Mango Luau


So I was handed some paper that I would normally not work with and was stumped for a moment. And then I began to think..........SURFBOARD


But it couldn't be just any surfboard. It had to be a mini album. So I took theSilhouette and cut out a surfboard shape covered all the pages front and back with the Bo Bunny - Mango Luau and went from there. I decided it would look kinda cute as a sign so I used binder rings and my Big Shot to cut out the sign bracket and also covered that front and back with the card stock. I used the stickers from the collection and Scrap Happy Orange Fizz and Jellybean Green Inks and Cardstockthroughout. 


I inked all the edges and popped up the surfboards on this page. Behind that is a little mini book to pull out to add photos to, front and back.


The next page is tied with ribbon from the Sew Ribbon and I love how it matched up with the orange in the paper. 


This too folds out to add more pictures to.


The last couple pages have stickers added and have more space to add pictures and journal.




Hope you enjoy this weeks project and get a chance to get to the store to try out all of the products used in this project and much more.

Hello everyone.  Happy Monday.  Today I have a card for you made from our summer fun kit.  Now, this is not material that I would normally use, but Susie insisted that we all try to do something out of our norm.  So of course I made a card with Beach Marci from La-La Land Crafts, but I changed her a bit.  I paper pieced her bathing suit and hat (not any easy feat, believe me).  I colored her with my Copics.  On her hat is a Peebles Candy Dot in green (which can be found at Scrap Happy.  The dies are from the Cloud, Sun and Island Set from La-La LandCrafts.  The palm tree I cut out from my Silhouette Cameo (love that machine).  The coconuts are pearls that I colored brown.  I used Star Dust Stickles on the sun to make it shine.  I hope you enjoy my Beach Marci as much as I did making her.  

New stamps and dies are arriving for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  You don't want to miss out, exclusive to Scrap Happy.  Until next time, have a happy day. 



Copics used:

Flesh E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair E27, 25, 23
