New Happy Scatter Items At Last!

Hello! It’s been a long time since I uploaded some new items to my Etsy shop, Happy Scatter. The last time was May 2015! I can’t believe it’s been so long, but with starting a part time job in June plus all the volunteer work I do, I guess it’s not that surprising that my designing took a back seat for a while. I had started designing the new items ages ago but never got round to finishing them off and actually making them!

For the last month-or-so I’ve been joining in with Etsy Resolution, a bootcamp for Etsy shop owners. It’s been super inspiring and helped me to improve lots of areas of the shop like understanding SEO. It definitely helped give me a kick to get more items listed!

Here’s the new bits and pieces you can now find in the shop:

New Happy Scatter Products Release Feb 2016

Fun huh? There’s 2 die cut cards sets (the ‘See The World’ travel set and the ‘Home’ set), 3 new stencils (the ‘Ahoy There’ anchors stencil, the ‘Wood Slice’ stencil, and the ‘Edgy Chevron Arrows’ stencil), and 3 new flair buttons sets (the ‘Time To Go’ travel flair, the ‘The Sea Is Calling Me’ flair, and the ‘Just Lovely’ flair).

My favourite new item is the anchors stencil. We do live by the beach so nautical items are always good here, plus I’ve always wanted to get an anchor tattoo. I’m just not brave enough. Adding these to my projects will keep me happy in the meantime:

The flair are all quite cute too though. I know I’m biased because I designed them! In my opinion the best one is the little shelf with cacti on. Which one do you like best?

I’ll be blogging some projects with these, as soon as I can squeeze in a bit of time for crafting!

One thing I should mention is that I have put the prices up on some of my items, due to an increase in manufacturing costs, and me not being very savvy about how much time things would really take to make when I started the shop. I’ve learnt that even if I’m using an electronic die cutter to cut things it still takes a lot of time to set the machine up, clean the sticky residue off stencils, package things up, on top of time spent designing things in the first place, etc, etc. I do actually want to earn a little bit of money for my time, which I’m sure you can all understand!

However I have also changed the price of postage so it will cost you LESS – it’s now a new low flat rate, so you can buy as many items from my shop as you like and the postage won’t increase per item like it used to.

I hope that all makes sense. Any questions let me know.

Thank you so much for continuing to support me and my shop – if you can’t afford to buy anything right now then a pin, tweet, re-gram or FB share of these new items would make me smile just as much!

I hope you are having a great week. It’s half term here so I’m trying to keep my little monkeys occupied during the day. They know how to keep me busy!

GUEST POST – Melissa Vining with a Happy Scatter Process Video!

It’s time for the last (but certainly not the least) of my Guest Designers that I recruited to show off some of my Happy Scatter Etsy Shop items. I had a few delays in sending the last parcel out, but Melissa Vining was very patient and now she’s here to share what she created! Read on to see her two layouts, plus a process video for one of them!

‘This Was The Day’ layout by Melissa Vining:

Isn’t it stunning? It’s so full of life and dimension!

Here’s a process video she made for this layout (she shares a closer look at some of the supplies too):

 I am in love with the torn-paper background inside the circle, I am definitely going to be trying that out myself!

Here’s a few detail photos…

Here you can see one of the cork stickers from the My Zone Mixed Embellishment Kit – these cork stickers are flat enough to layer up easily:

The wood veneer below is from the same set, it looks so cool coloured with mint Gelatos:

The ‘This Was The Day’ card from the Happy Scatter Look At This 3×4 Die Cut Cards set works great as a title in the middle of the page:

Melissa couldn’t resist making another layout with the supplies I’d sent to her…

‘Look At This’ layout by Melissa Vining:

This is the most adorable layout. And I’m sorry Melissa, but I did think ‘look at those cheeks’ before I even read what the page was about! She is amazingly cute!

Melissa put the new flair to fantastic use. Here are some detail photos…

The So I Said Flair Set and the flowers from the Fresh New World Wood Veneer Set are a nice contrast in shiny & rough textures:

The ‘look at this’ die-cut card is bright and bold with this pink backing:

What do you think? Aren’t these just beautiful and full of lovely details to look at? I think she did an amazing job! Thank you Melissa!

Here’s a reminder of where to find Melissa and more of her wonderful layouts…
