Adventure Fundamentals - Layout 7

Today is the last double page layout of the workshop to share with you using the Adventure Fundamentals with the coordinating Good Life Complements.  This one is the 'Love Life' layout.   Make sure to keep reading to the bottom to see the left over scraps I still have available to get crafty with!



Like I did on all of the other 6 layouts I have shared, here are a couple of close up pictures for you

Arrow, heart and star stickers from the Complements, don't you just love how these coordinate with the papers, not just plain colored stickers, the designs are like the patterned papers - genius! and of course more gold shimmer trim and sequins!

'Today' journaling sticker topped with the 'today's a good day' banner sticker, gold foil accented vellum arrow, purple star sticker and just a few more gold sequins to top off this cluster.


Now that I've shown you all 7 double page layouts from the workshop, just look at all I have left STILL to create with!  I am really loving the new fundamentals paper packets!


All of these stickers, glitter die cuts and just a couple gold foil accented vellum pieces left!

4, yes FOUR complete sheets of patterned paper that have not been touched!!

Here's the back side of those 4 papers.

And now look at ALL of these scraps I have left over!  I see many more projects coming out of this!!  I placed the flip side of the paper on top of or right next to it to show you both sides and color options I have left.  






Would you like to create all of the lovely artwork I have shared with you from the Adventure Fundamentals papers??  Purchase your papers with me and I'll help you out!  Click any blue underlined link on this post to go directly to my website to make your purchase or message me at pamtrostle@msn.com and I'll get your items order for you!

We’ve got a very special treat lined up for you today to help introduce our brand new Fundamentals papers. We asked Executive Director Karen Pedersen to create some artwork that shows the results you can get from combining our Whimsy, Adventure, Enchantment, and Basics Fundamentals.
And right now, when you buy the WhimsyAdventure, and Enchantment Fundamentals, you’ll qualify to get the Uptown Fundamentals or the Rustic Home Fundamentals from our Basics collection for FREE! That means you can save money on brand new products that you can use to create amazing artwork pieces like these:

Our Basics Fundamentals, which include the Uptown Fundamentals and the Rustic Home Fundamentals you can get for free this month, are called basics because they feature neutral colors. This means they work in perfect harmony with any of our colors.
Beautiful scrapbook pages created by Karen Pedersen with our Fundamentals papers #ctmh #closetomyheart #ctmhfundamentals #scrapbookingideas #scrapbooking
Our Rustic Home Fundamentals feature soft browns and greys, with textures that remind us of home, like these wooden slats:

Our Uptown Fundamentals feature black, grey, and gold patterns for a chic, modern look. Pair them with bright colors, like Karen did here, or with more muted colors for an entirely different look.

Magical - Happy Birthday card

August is the last month you can purchase Magical papers and coordinating products.  
I just love this paper packet!  It has a lot of Disney similar themed items in the Complements, but can be used for so many other projects besides just Disney vacations.  Below is a fun fold card I made using the Magical paper packet with the new Birthday Sparkles stamp set.  I love the little confetti like stamp that is in this set.  It added just that right amount of extra something this card needed around the birthday sentiment and around the center greeting piece.  I hope you enjoy it!
