The Velvet Trend and Wedding Day Accents

Monday, April 30th, 2018

The velvet trend is everywhere and seemingly, isn’t going anywhere this year or wedding season. From the fashion runways, to home décor and everywhere in between, velvet isn’t just a fabric reserved for the holidays or the inside of your jewelry box anymore.

While the velvet trend may seem like it has come into recent popularity, it is actually a timeless fabric that has been associated with nobility for centuries. With its shimmer to the eye and soft-to-the-touch feel, velvet will add a bit of luxury to your everyday life.


At Blue Sky Papers, our goal is to create books that have a timeless and traditional feel to them, for you to pass down as family heirlooms for generations to come. Including a velvet book in your wedding will add a touch of nobility to the day, while maintaining its elegance throughout the years.

Happy First Mother’s Day – Heirlooms and Gifts for New Moms

Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

Happy First Mother’s Day to all of the Mommas out there! Motherhood is a series of first, so make this first Mother’s Day a memorable one with a sentimental gift she’ll love.


While flowers and a card are the traditional ways to show your appreciation on Mother’s Day, giving the gift of a keepsake is one that will continue to bring her joy for years to come.


A Baby’s Book Time Capsule

They grow up so fast, and while you can’t slow time down, you can try your best to capture it.


An archival photo album keepsake for baby will hold all the precious moments from trinkets, to photos, to first haircuts and newspaper clippings on their birthdays. It’s a keepsake to be treasured and revisited over time.



A Family Recipe Scrapbook  

A new baby is the perfect reason to finally start a collection of your family’s favorite recipes. Add to the collection of recipes throughout the years, then when ‘baby’ is ready for college or to move out on their own, re-gift them this family heirloom full of their favorite homemade meals from their childhood. Choose one of our journals for your recipies or this wooden recipe box.


A Motherhood Journal

‘The days are long but the years are short”.

Encourage her to journal the milestones and the mundane moments in-between, because one day, she’ll blink,  the children will be grown and these long days will be far behind her… She’ll miss these days more than she could ever imagine it now. So, give her the space (and time) each day, for herself, to stop and reflect on the ups and downs of her new journey into motherhood.
