Blue Skies

Hello and welcome aboard our Blue Skies Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.  This paper collection is a special release for May – National Scrapbooking Month.

If you have arrived here from Lauren’s CTMH Craftings then you are in the right place. 

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. 

Today I would like to share with you a number of 12×12 layouts that I created using the pieces that I’d originally cut up to make a 6×8 album. I cut it up a while ago and had got interrupted and didn’t put it together. Then in the midst of a clean up in my craft room I found two other past 6×8 album kits that I hadn’t yet put photos on. So I decided this time to do something a bit different and turn these pieces into 12×12 layouts – as I have been working my way through photos from 2014.

I also added a few wooden embellishments that I had floating around. On a couple of these layouts I grabbed some extra left over pieces to fill spaces. But they are predominantly from the 6X8 kit.

Over the weekend I participated in a CTMH Virtual Album Retreat. For this event I pre-purchased the kit. This contained all the pieces pre-cut for twenty 12×12 pages, three stamps sets (one included thin cuts), a set of stand alone thin cuts, all the embellishments for the pages and page protectors. The layouts were made of a mix of the Blue Skies Papers and Stitched Together Papers. So I’m sharing with you the ones that are Blue Skies predominantly. (I’ll share the Stitched together ones next month.)

I love in this layout have the Diamond colour Stickles have been used – on the top of the white foam ABC stickers and as an edge to the clouds to add a cute extra detail.

Next I’ll share some of the beautiful art work created by the CTMH Art Studio. The first image is the 6×8 album pages that I modified.

During the month of May the Blue Skies collection can be all yours for just $139.50, while stocks last.  Individual components can be ordered from your CTMH consultant. If you do not have a consultant please contact me or place an order here.

I’d love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Passionate About Pages.

Until next time,

Happy Crafting
