Club Scrap Color Me Happy January Blog Hop

Hi Everyone, 

Welcome to the first Blog Hop of 2017 with Club Scrap's Color Me Happy Kit. What a way to start the New Year!!! I just love this kit.  The colors are absolutely vibrant and sure to get you out of the winter blues. Now first things first if you came from Julie's blog then you came from the right place. If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen at Club Scrap's Blog.

Before we begin I have a fabulous giveaway!!! I'm giving away an Aquarelle Brush Set 18 pack to a lucky winner.  All you have to do is follow my blog for a chance to win.

Leave a comment below and let me know you have posted it on facebook or instagram. Here is the fabulous prize.

Finished measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 folded

For my card I used the patterned designs from the Digital Kit. I used a plain cardstock for the base of my card. It measures 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, fold in half. I cut a plain cardstock 4 x 5 1/4 and embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder then adhered to center front of card. I used the Dotted Scallop Rectangle Die with the Stitched Rectangle Die from Elizabeth Craft Designs to create a background window. I created the cherry blossoms by drawing a 5 petal flower on corel and then cut it out on my scanncut. I shaped the petals and assembled the top and bottom layer. Bottom layer the petals go up and top layer the petals go in. I added some prills to the center of flowers. I added 2 rose flowers from I Am Roses. I diecut some leaves and topped it with a mesh butterfly. The sentiment is also from the digital kit.

When I saw this fabulous kit I just knew I had to make a new Happy Planner cover. It just made me so happy that I felt like it was made for it.  Who wouldn't want to look at this cover everyday.

I cut out my cover from the 12x12 patterned paper to 7 1/2" x 9 1/2". I cut a strip of the plain teal paper and heat embossed the word "Happy" and the "Flower" stamp (both are in the kit). I used a piece of the cut-a-part with the dragon flies. I have a thing for dragon flies. Then I matted the teal strip with a strip of brown. Once everything was in place I used my laminator to give my cover sturdy protection. I passed it a few times. Once it cooled down I used one of my happy planner pages as a template to cut the holes with a single hole punch and then scissors for the slits. 

I didn't stop there. I decided I needed a matching bookmark. With the left over strip of the same 12x12 patterned paper I cut 2 strips, measuring 6 1/4 x 2 1/2. I passed it in my laminator a few times. I cut a hole on the top center with the single hole punch. Then I attached 2 Club Scrap ribbon's through the hole. Now I can get to my important reminders quicker!

Thanks for stopping by. Now head on over to Lisa's blog.
