Happy Day Collection


My friend, Beth Matson and I have been challenging one another to use up some of our designer paper lately (along with lots of other supplies).

I sent her some pics of what I had been working on and she knew she had that same paper pad (Simple Stories Happy Day), so we are coordinating our posts so you can see what she created with the same paper pad.

I was going for some pretty simple cards to sell at my hubby's work.  I didn't want to put too many embellishments on them and I was doing my best to not do much stamping, but rather use the little die cuts that come with it.  Hard to create such different cards when you have the same type of rectangles, but I think the collection turned out well.

I was also happy to use up not only some of this paper pad (I still have a bunch left), but other than my card base, I pulled scraps out my card stock.

Hope you will visit Beth as well and say "hi". She's got some gorgeous creations (she let me sneak a peek at some and I even added some banners onto my top right card based on one of hers).


Sorry, I don't have details of many of them since I sent them all in as soon as I was getting them created.  

Hope you like!

Great cards! I esp like the Party Like a Rockstar and the orange one with the Papery Smooches sentiment. Thanks so much for joining me in this fun little challenge! We'll have to do it again.
