I just receive all of my Happiest Place goodies last week, and I have spent the last five days playing with every component in the collection.  Today, I decided to pull out the balloon thin cut die from the Happiest Place bundle and use it to create a great big card for a Disney loving friend. 

This card just screams happiness, doesn’t it? I love all the bright colors, foil designs, and whimsical shapes. I also enjoyed how quickly it came together using the balloon die from the Happiest Place Stamp + Thin cut set

To create the front of the card, I placed the thin cut randomly onto some White Daisy cardstock and ran it through my die cut machine.  I used the same thin cut to cut some balloon shapes from pieces of Happiest Place papers & foil cardstockHow cute are those patterns??!!! 

To create that bottom layer, I cut a second piece of White Daisy cardstock the same size as the first, and adhered each of the patterned balloons onto it, using the top layer as a guide.  I also used that top layer to line up each one of the stamped string images on the balloons. 

After all the balloons were assembled and stamped, I used some Intense Black Ink to stamp the sentiment onto the card and added a little acrylic bow above the sentiment.  These acrylic shapes are so fun to use and add some wonderful dimension to your projects. 

To finish the card, I added some Black & White checked ribbon and a couple of Black Dots.  The completed piece was mounted onto some Black Foil cardstock and is ready to be sent off to my Disney loving friend. 


I hope that you were inspired to try something new today using the Happiest Place Collection.  This collection is available while supplies last, and can be purchased at a 20% discount during the months of July & August along with a few digital collections.

Remembering Those Who Sacrificed So Much For All of Us

Poppies are one of my favorite flowers and they bring tears to my eyes when I am reminded of what they represent to the many who lost family members to wars that were fought.  No matter if you’re from, the United States, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, we all owe a great deal to the men and women in the armed forces who have sacrificed so much to preserve freedom. On days like Anzac (Australia & New Zealand Army Corps) Day, we have the chance to express some of our appreciation and gratitude as we set this day aside to commemorate their actions.

This year, we wanted to celebrate Anzac Day with a two exclusive stamp sets. The Remembering Anzac Day special features the My Acrylix® Lest We Forget stamp set and the My Acrylix® Poppy Sentiments stamp set. These stamp sets are available at a 20% discount when you purchase the Remembering Anzac Day Stamp Bundle

Save 20% on the Stamp Bundle

Although the Lest We Forget stamp set is totally focused on Anzac Day, the Poppy Sentiments could be used for just about anything. I plan on purchasing these for myself, simply for that beautifully designed Poppy image. I can’t wait to create a few layers of flowers on my spring creations.

Unfortunately, the items in the Remembering Anzac Day special are only available through April 30.  Make sure to stop by my website and order yours before they are gone.
