CTMH Zoe Blog Hop - Magical Layout

Welcome to our CTMH Zoe Blog Hop!  We are all excited to share our amazing projects made with this brand new paper line from CTMH.  Zoe appears in our brand new Annual Inspirations catalog that will make its premiere on September 1st, but all of the Zoe products are available now!
If you have arrived here from the very talented Jennifer Wolford's blog, you are on the right track!
So, onto my Zoe project...
The moment that I first set eyes upon Zoe, it spoke to me.  The cheerful colors and adorable patterns told me I needed to create a Disney themed layout with it right away.  So, that is exactly what I did.  I was very inspired by a layout that I had seen that was created by Liz Mullins Johnson.  She had created a wonderful birthday layout using a pattern out of CTMH's Make It From Your Heart instruction books.  She also included an adorable star overlay from the CTMH Cricut collection, Artbooking, that I duplicated.  Using cardstock from my Zoe paper pack, I followed the cutting guide provided in the instruction book and built my layout from there.  I decided that adding a little sparkle would be the right thing to do on the layout, so I used some Silver Glitter paper for my title and to back my little "Oh So Happy" Picture My Life card. 
That little card was cut out of black cardstock using the CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.  Speaking of cartridges, did you see that fancy font that I used for the word "Magical"? 
It was cut from the brand spanking new cartridge from CTMH called Artistry.  I love that font, and all of the 700+ images that join it on the cartridge.  I also used the font from our Artbooking cartridge to cut the other words.  I enjoy being able to create my own custom titles in Cricut Design Space with my new Explore.  I am having a blast, I tell ya! 
For the finishing touch, I created some little Mickey heads out of CTMH sequins, and sprinkled some Glacier colored sequins here and there on the pages.  I will soon be sad to see some of the colors that are now available gone, as they are retiring at the end of this month :(
I hope that you have enjoyed my Zoe layout with a Disney spin.  Please be sure to become a follower of my blog if you would like to see more of my artwork in the future!
Next up in the Zoe Blog Hop is my friend, the very, very talented Cindy Mercurio with Cinful Crafts.
