This is a circular hop, click through to the blog mentioned at the end of each post and you will find yourself back here.  There’s a lot of love shared in the cards, pages and projects created by my sister consultants using A Happy Hello, Stamp of the Month (S1502). Enjoy!

I have been wanting to try this spiral technique for some time and this stamp set was ideal.  This is the title page for my 2015 album.

Position a 6.25" photo mount 2" from the RHS and 2.5" from lower edge of the page. Begin with the smallest stamp at about 9 o'clock; stamping it 4 times before swapping to the next size stamp.  Continue around until you overlap where you began.

I used 5 inks - Honey, Autumn Terracota,Cranberry, Hollyhock and Gypsy.  Having one colour more than the repititions of the stamp makes the pattern more random.  The larger flowers are made from 2 stamps.

Matching cardstock to inks is easy with the Close To My Heart range. Matching cardstock to inks is easy with the Close To My Heart range.


I stamped directly onto the white cardstock background so it was really quick to do.  Gold sequins(Z2012) and Bitty Sparkles (Z1263) were the only accents I needed.  My letters are cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

A happy HelloA happy Hello (S1502) is only available during February, 2015.  Full retail price is $27 but you can have this gorgeous set for just $5 when accompanied by a $75 order.
