Happy Days by Sue Crease

Hello again!

Here I am sharing a layout I have made for the but I am also using a layout I loved from The Mixed Media Frenzy Facebook group. I love to get inspiration from lots of different groups (I'm sure you're just the same?) in ways to use my stash so that not everything I make looks the same!

This layout I've called Happy because that is what I feel when I look at her with her toy having so much fun in the garden in the sun.

I started off with a sheet of bazzill-basics/white-canvas and to the centre I added a strip of prima-marketing/rub-ons this is my first time using them and they can be used with powders, foil, glitter and floss. I used a mixture of of 3 embossing powders and they worked so well. 


Then I took 3 different distress inks and using the carrier sheet method I added the watered ink to the page.

Then I grabbed papers from my stash that went with the colours I've used. yellow stripe from little-dreamer-boy-play-all-day , the blue is from simple-vintage-cottage-fields-sweet-life, hearts from little-dreamer-girl journaling-cards and the pink is from a Kaisercraft collection of sweet baby girl. 

As you can see I stitched down the centre of my pie-slices of paper in either green, coral, navy or pink thread. I stuck them down using double sided scor-tape (Janine sells this in 5 widths). Next I took my photo of our puppy (she's almost 4 but we call her that lol) and mounted it on to 3 layers one being printed paper the other 2 plain bazzill-basics in coral and navy. 

Then I added around the page sequins, mini hearts and black Nuvo drops. 

You can see in the photo below I added paw prints in 2 sizes about the page along with a bubble/heart stamp too.

After deciding not to go with the inspiration photo on where they put the title I added mine at the bottom left. I also added a black line around the edge of the page and also added different colours around each slice too.

The title is a Dusty Attic chipboard which I have embossed using the leftovers from the centre strip all mixed together, it looks really cute in real life.
Well thanks for stopping by again, maybe you will give this a try too. If nothing else go over to and check out the online store. Janine has new stock coming in every week so you're bound to find something new to try.
Till next time, take care & stay safe.
