We hope that all of you are enjoying this holiday weekend and having a nice, relaxing Labor Day with friends and family, good food, and lots of sunshine! Seems like the perfect day to share some more Sunshine & Happiness projects from our CHA Designers!
“Fresh Florida Fruit”, by Brook Stewart.
I am crazy for all things washi tape and Bella has a ton of my favorites! How can you go wrong with chevron?! And with 2 brand new chevron colors this release, I was in heaven!! I just love all of the bright, bold colors and patterns and they went perfectly with these colorful fruity photos I took on our vacation to Florida this year!

“Sunshine”, by Sarah Klemish.
I started with a white cardstock background, layering pieces of patterned papers on the left side of the page. I used a circle cutter to create the large scallop border. After adding pictures I pop dotted the yellow star scallop sticker and Sienna Alpha title. I added flowers and a heart sticker and completed the layout with sewed down journaling blocks on the right side of the page.

"One Week", by Allyson Meinholz.
When doing this layout and using Sunshine & Happiness - I love this cherry paper but haven't used it yet! And just having Alayna this photo was perfect with her little cherry outfit on. I did start the layout with the green pattern paper from Birthday Girl (party dress) and also using borders from Birthday Girl. I added the title with various sticker letters and chipboard letters. Then added an embellishment in the corner with layering a sticker with chipboard and a button with twine - then cut out and popped the cherry. My favorite added touch was her name white on white.

"Friend" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
"My favorite thing about the Sunshine & Happiness line? The flowers! I can't get enough of them! I thought the flowers would make a fun, summer-y card to send to a friend. I adhered the flowers here with lots of foam adhesive to give the card a lot of dimension. This is the 2nd or 3rd card that I have made with a purple/red color scheme...I think I like it! Thanks for looking!"

"Together" card, by Allyson Meinholz.
For this card, I decided to use multiple designer tapes for the background. I then took a piece of pink pattern paper and used my Cricut die cut machine to cut out a heart. I adhered it with pop dots and layered it over the top of the designer tapes. I added a few buttons to finish it off.

"Swim Fun Mini Album", by Becky Williams.
I don't do mini albums very often but thought it would be fun to create this mini using pictures of one of our very favorite summertime activities- swimming. I used a chipboard album from Maya Road, added patterned papers to each page and then trimmed 2x3 pictures to fit each page. I then embellished each page with Miniatures stickers, chipboard and Designer Tapes.
