Get Back to the Fundamentals

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop
Brought to you by
 Close to My Heart Independent Consultants 

You've arrived here from Darlys' blog.  The hop is a circle, so be assured you'll see all the artwork if you keep on hopping.  This month the focus is on the Fundamental line by Close to My Heart.  

For this hop I decided to create two cards with a Christmas theme....I have Christmas on the brain lately.  I know that many others have Christmas predominately in their thoughts too.  I just want to make Christmas cards, albums, and layouts.   I've been buying some super cute papers, and other things to add to my Christmas stash.

  I created a black base used a piece of the Ruby Fundamental paper in the Enchanted line that looks like a string of lights to me.  The joy is a Cricut cut from the Artistry cartridge.

 I used the Artistry cartridge to cut out these images, with the exception of Christmas that is from another source.

Items used are by Close to My Heart others will be noted:
  • Cardstock:  Black, Kraft, Sweet Leaf,  White Daisy
  • Artistry Cricut cartridge CTMH exclusive
  • Paper Fundamentals:  Enchanted
  • Fundamentals Assortment in Gold
  • Gold Shimmer Trim
  • Ribbon, Thread, and Christmas die cut sourced from other. 

I participated in a hop on the 6th of the month which featured the Fundamental line.  The Fundamentals feature stickers, assortments, and of course paper.  You may view the line here.  And if you'd like to see the layout I created featuring this fun line go here

Thank You for taking the time to view the hop.  On the 15th of each month a new technique is featured, so mark your calendar.  It's time to hop on to Catherine's blog to see her art.
