Welcome to August – back to school preparations, the winding down of summer, a new Idea Book, lots of fun new products, and getting ready for new schedules & routines – getting back to basics.
My week sans family was very productive (more on that later) – but now they’re all back from Scout Camp and it’s time to get ready for school and the Fall. I’m really excited about the new CTMH Fundamentals papers. All the fantastic colors make beautiful scrapbooks & cards. My biggest problem was deciding which project to jump into first.
This year at convention, CTMH revealed new Fundamentals paper packets in each of our color groups – Adventure, Enchantment, and Whimsy all have fun patterns and lettering/words. From bold diagonal stripes, to a page covered in brush script love – large polka dots or just small dots, arrows, hearts… so many options. Each packet has 6 designs in 4 colors (each double sided sheet has the same pattern but different colors on each side) – Plus – you get 2 of each sheet for a total of 24 sheets.
These papers feature the colors, rather than a particular theme, so they are fantastic to pair with the coordinating cardstock, Complements and Ribbon Packs. Here are a few pieces done with the Fundamentals…
In addition to the fun colored papers, CTMH has also given us beautiful Basics to work with – Rustic Home has cozy wood grains, linen, and a dotted kraft paper. I can’t wait to play scrap with the Memo pack – 3 designs that are perfect for reminiscing with a world map, ledger, and notebook background. Then we have the Uptown packet with gold foil and velum. Last but not least is the All About Gold overlays – dots, stripes – all stunning. But – don’t let the name fool you – flip these beauties over and you’ve got these designs in silver! I haven’t had a chance to play with these pretties yet – so all I have for you are shots of the papers – but they’re still pretty to look at :)!
