Cloud Nine - January is National Papercrafting Month!

Did you know that January is National Papercrafting Month?

Well, it is.   : )

And to celebrate, during the month of January, when you place a minimum $35 Close To My Heart order, you can get the exclusive Cloud Nine kit for just $15 (retail value of $46).

The kit comes with trendy papers, a fun stamp set, a roll of teal shimmer trim, a sheet of silver and antiqued gold durables triangles, die-cuts shapes to work with the stamp set images, and 10 card bases with envelopes.  Oh, and I can't forget about the gold polka-dotted washi tape!  Super cute!

But, if you know me at all, I decided to change it up a little.  lol

I've really been wanting to start scrapping my photos more.
(I just ordered a photo printer on Boxing Day, so once it arrives, I will be able to print photos as I need them for my layouts... yay!)

So I created a layout perfect for our photos from one of our trips to Hawaii.
(To the kit, I added a sheet of Creme Brulee CS, a sheet of Colonial White CS, and a piece of Sunset CS.)

I cut the title using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge.  I actually cut it twice, once in Colonial White, and once in Sunset and just layered them so you can see the Sunset peeking out from behind.

I also "painted" on some Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel onto the title piece to give it shimmer.


Then I created a set of six 3x3 cards with some of the leftovers and the Pun Fun stamp set... and I still have some paper left!

Can you see the Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel on each of the cards?

Adds a super cute touch!
