Have you seen the new collection of papers from Coco Vanilla called 'Happiness'?
Sooooo pretty!

 I bought the 6" x 8" paper pad which is brimming with pretty papers, 
along with a pack of Die Cut Ephemera and Die Cut Titles.

The background for both these cards was from one sheet of paper 
which was matted on black card before adhering to folded white card.
The die cuts were popped up on dimensionals with a stamped greeting slotted behind.

These cards were super easy to put together 
and I can see me using up every last piece of this beautiful and vibrant collection.

Darkroom Door - 'Happy Birthday' 

Happy Crafting!


  1. Hi, Helen, I love using scraobook papers (scraps, especially) as backgrounds for cards, postcards, ATCs (well, anything, actually), etc. Also, nothing sets off your focal art like black matting! Kudos on both those here! Great cards and cheery greetings!

  3. Forgot to ask, what (or where) is "mountain-tree change"?

  4. Thank you for all your lovely comments, Kay, they are much appreciated and always put a smile on my face. I'm sure we'd get along very well in real life!

    My 'mountain tree change' is an escape out of the rat-race of Sydney, with our ideal area being the Blue Mountains which are west of Sydney (1 - 1/2hrs drive). Whether it ever happens, who knows, but I can dream. xoxox
