You Are My Happy Artwork

This was a blast creating this project... using the September Constant Campaign set "You Are My Happy!!"  

It's being used in conjunction with the Laughing Lola paper kit as that is the feature kit this month.  I wanted to create a layout using the 8x12 flip flap and found this paper pack a perfect kit to work with!  

12x12 Laughing Lola layout will become part of the WOTG Class
So here is the first half of the layout... with the flap closed... it's not in a flip flap yet, but you get the idea. I love this bright paper... 

8x12 flap is open
So here it is open... Love this double sided paper... 

Close up of the flower, the bracket and the font
and here it's easy to see the Whimsical Alpha bet... Luv it!  It stamps so clean and easy!  Luv it!  Oops... did I say it again... LOL... guess I really like it:)

The flowers were stamped in archival black... allowing them to dry before adding the markers.  One great tip when stamping images on cricut piece, put the white image on a darker piece of cardstock for easier stamping and better centering.

Markers used are honey, gypsy, cotton candy, and twilight.

Another side note, I colored outside the line of the stamp and thought it added a little more whimsy and maybe a little more dimension.  How fun is that!!!  The gypsy flowers are glued to the base and the colored flowers we lifted up with dimensional tape.

The icons stamp set has 15 images that are fun and five of them are images that can be cut out using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  The flowers were cut using the cricut.  It's wonderful that the carrier sheets have the size and page number (and cartridge) for ease!  The White flowers are cut at 1.5 and the purple flowers are cut at 1.75.  

The alpha stamp set has upper and lower case, numbers and four punctuation marks.  (67 stamps in all).

The Sentiments are not used on this layout and there are nine fun phrases included on that.  Photos to come!
