National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop - Blue Skies

Welcome to the National Scrapbooking Month  - Blue Skies Blog Hop ! 

This month I am following {Wendy Kessler's blog}   We have 17 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in our These are National Scrapbooking Month - Blue Skies Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.  

Blue Skies is the name of the National Scrapbooking Month Close to My Heart Promotion.  I love the bright colors and the stamp set with Thin cuts is fantastic! This is an incredible  new and exclusive patterned paper collection and suite of coordinating products, only available for the month of May and while supplies last. The sunny and bright Blue Skies collection may just be our best National Scrapbooking Month offering, yet!

 Look at these gorgeous patterned papers.

And here is the special UV coated cardstock that goes with this special.

And lets not forget the stamp sets and thin cuts that are also offered with this promotion.

And lets not forget the super cute Cut Above Kit.

 I wanted to use the various UV coated cardstock and the patterned paper in my artwork this month.  All of the stamped images minus the sentiment come from the stamp set/thin cut set.
