National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop - Blue Skies

Welcome to our National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring the amazing new Blue Skies collection.

If you have come here from Carrie's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

This month we have 18 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I loved the paper packet and sticker sheet especially, and one of the papers reminded me of ice cream sprinkles so this layout was born as soon as I saw that there was also an ice cream sticker! Used the sprinkle pattern on top of the UV coated glossy cardstock that comes as part of this collection.

Look at these fun papers! Here I have used the sprinkle paper, one of the zip strips, some of the starry patterned paper and the coated cardstock. This journal sticker came in very handy to add the story to my layout, as we live in a rural area and Mr Whippy never comes out to our township! We were lucky enough that my work colleague's dad owns a Mr Whippy truck and so he paid us a special visit to our house.

I matted this photo of my son on the coated cardstock and popped it up on 3D Foam tape for some extra dimension. I had to use the ice cream sticker, and I also used the cute little "yum" text sticker.

This banner was made using the back of the coated cardstock, which is the plain side, and the sticker was a title that I thought went perfectly with my photo. Here you can really see the beautiful pattern that the cardstock has, and how adorable are all these stickers?

Now "Hop" on over to Becca's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the Blue Skies collection is only available until 31st May!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this collection!
