National Scrapbooking Month

The Blue Skies collection is all so amazing and I had hoped to share some layouts with you featuring the paper and stickers, but unfortunately due to our New Zealand lockdown I only have the cardstock at the moment. However, this cardstock is not like the usual Close To My Heart cardstock. It features special glossy UV-coated patterns on one side. Look at this gorgeousness!

I just had to create something using this cardstock, so I turned to my Cricut and used the Everyday Moments collection to create a fun birthday layout using just the Blue Skies cardstock paired with White Daisy cardstock.

Here is the layout- look at all of the fun patterns in the cardstock! I also used the little heart and journal lines from our new Through Thick and Thin stamp set, a wooden arrow and a touch of gold shimmer trim.

The overlay for this layout is sized at 6x8 in the collection, but it was no problem to size it for a 12x12 scrapbook page just by changing the measurements on my Cricut screen.

Let's have a closer look- you can see that each colour has a different pattern. The White Daisy overlay really makes these colours pop! I took this photo with a flash to bring up all of the texture- in real life this combo is subtle but definitely noticeable.

How cute is this cupcake! You can see the texture again within the cupcake, although I used the back side of the Sapphire sheet to cut the candlestick and to mat the photos. I popped the cupcake up with some 3D Foam Tape for extra dimension.

I framed the overlay with the Lagoon sheet, and the UV pattern makes it look almost stitched around the outside of the layout- just another fun touch!

I love this new cardstock for its bright colours and fun glossy patterns, and hope to do some more creating when the rest of this collection appears at my post office!
