Level I Goes Happy Forever at July's Blog Hop

Welcome to our July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. If you've been wanting to hop with hedgehogs you are in the right place. "Happy Forever" is a fun stamp set with 4 happy critters, 3 sayings, 1 butterfly and 1 heart. These happy little critters can help you celebrate every season, holiday and occasion that you might have. Don't miss your chance to get this set. If you have come from Susan's blog you are on the right track.
For my project I used the Level I paper pack from Zippidee to make some fun for kids. My first item is a quiet book for those kids who are waiting somewhere and they need to be shhhhh....quiet. I used two of the preprinted 12 X 12 sheets and cut them in half. Then I folded those in have to make a 6 page book with a front and back cover. I also used the letters that come in the Level I kit for all the titles.


Front Cover

Back Cover














Page 1 has balloons with magnets on the back that can be removed and matched to the right color. Page 2 has flowers that can be buttoned and unbuttoned from the page.













Page 3 has 2 bows that be tied and untied on the kite. Page 4 wants you to learn how to count to ten by counting the butterflies.













Page 5 has 3 shapes in the pocket with magnets on the back. They can be put on each shape. Page 6 has 2 pockets, one with a coloring pad and one with crayons. The coloring pad has pages of all the critters for some fun coloring.



After making this little book, I wanted to use the rest of the Level I to make a card coloring kit.
I used the remaining preprinted pages, cardstock, and BTP papers to make some cards that need coloring. I used a 9 X 9 page protector to make a holder for the cards.

Insert coloring cards/envelopes and crayons in the card holder.


Inside card holder with cards, envelopes and crayons.

Cards from Originals: A Heartfelt Classic, On Your Left, Lucky Three, and Greeting Pouch. These cards are made with the cardstock and BTP left over from the book.

These cards are the same designs and made with the preprinted sheets and BTP left over from the book.

Hope you are having fun with our Happy Forever critters this month. Now it's time to hop over to Traci's blog to visit with her happy critters.
