Happy as can be

Today I am Happy as can be to be joining the Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop and sharing this bright and bold card.

My son is now on his Summer Holiday and I am on leave from work for a few weeks so loved getting in the Summer mood with this blog hop theme: Summer Dreams

For my card I have used scraps from the What a Year Memories and More Card Pack (#155662) I had on my craft desk for this card. I love seeing what I create from the bits of pieces of die cuts or left over scraps of paper from previous projects.

I have added on some of the floral stickers (also from the M&M Card pack) and a touch of sewing. If you were creating this card, you wouldn’t have to add the stitching. The layout would still work without the sewing, but my machine was out on my desk, so I couldn’t resist!

This is the first time using this new embossing folder and I am so happy it is in my stash, who doesn’t love a Polka Dot? This is comes in a set of two mini folders which are a good size for card panels


  • Card base – Thick Basic White – 21cm x 14.8cm – Scored at 10.5cm
  • First layer – Thick Basic White – 14.5cm x 10.2cm
  • Embossed Panel – Basic White – 14cm x 7.5cm
  • Memories and More card piece – 10.2cm x 6cm
  • Basic White Layer behind the sentiment – 8.5cm x 4.2cm
  • Happy as can be Sentiment – M&M card piece – 8cm x 3.7cm

  1. I didn’t recognize this as Stampin’ Up! product at first. What a hidden gem! Why don’t I have this Memories & More card pack yet?! Lol Definitely will be on my next order!

  2. What a great layout! I’ve always wanted to sew on my cards but there isn’t enough space in my cave to have my sewing machine set up! This is fabulous! Well done!

  3. I *love* this, Emma! So fabulous! As soon as I saw the catalogue the M&M cards were on my list. I even ordered 2 packs – and haven’t used them yet!! So sad! You’ve inspired me to get them out and actually use them. Thanks so much!!
