This week, The Stamp Review Crew is showcasing the stamp set, Happy Scenes. This was one of the first sets I bought from the Holiday Catalogue. It’s very versatile with a few different seasonal scenes along with all sorts of different sentiments and extra elements. It also goes hand in hand with the gorgeous Hearth & Home window shaped thinlit.
I had an idea this week to make a sort of viewfinder project, similar to the card Yapha made in the last hop. My viewfinder project is actually a calendar with changeable images depending on the season or occasion. Here’s what I mean…
One of the great things about this project is that it’s also suitable for both northern and southern hemispheres. The winter image above suits a northern hemisphere January, but I would have mine set to the summer scene just by moving the dial at the back.
In between the cardstock base and dial (with seasonal scenes), I’ve added an acetate dial as well with various ‘occasion’ extras. Here’s a sample…
My autumn scene on the top left has plain acetate in front, the top right scene has a spiderweb in the corner for Halloween and the scene on the left has pumpkins for Thanksgiving.
There are loads of different options with this stamp set!
I hope you’ve been inspired to try something new with Happy Scenes. Why not hop along to Shana Gaff to see some more inspiration?
