Fundamentals Creative Collections Blog Hop


In this hop we are featuring artwork using any of the Fundamental Creative Collections from the Annual Inspirations or Seasonal Expressions 1 idea books.   So lots of fun and many creative ideas await you as you work your way through this blog hop.

If you have never participated in a blog hop before, it is just one big loop of creative ideas.  If you have come from Tamytha's blog, you are on the right track. If you are starting here, just look for the link at the end of my post and successive posts to see where to go next.

My scrapbook layout uses materials from several different Fundamentals Creative Collections.  The school theme paper from the Memo Fundamentals Collection will work out perfectly for listing 10 things we love about our grandson.



Here's a closer look at each page.



CTMH supplies used (click on each link to see the product)
Cardstock: Kraft, Black
Fundamentals Kits: Black patterned paper is from Uptown Fundamentals (AI), the lined paper is from the Memo Fundamentals (AI)
Complements: My Boy Complements (SE1)

If you are interested in getting any of these CTMH products, contact your CTMH consultant or visit my website.

I'm looking forward to being inspired by what  other consultants have created.  Won't you join me?  Our next stop in this hop is to see Gina's blog.  

If for some reason you get lost along the way you can see a list of all the consultants participating in this hop here .

February - 2 page scrapbook workshop



The layout we will use for this month's workshop is based on a design 
from Jeanette Lynton's Cherish, Scrapbook Layouts.

Workshop - Tuesday, February 7, 6:30 pm

(sorry this post is late!  I forgot to hit publish)


For this workshop, bring 8 to 10 related photos.  You get to choose the paper, embellishments, and whatever else you need to complete your own layout from my stash.  So it can be any themed layout you need: masculine, school, baby, party ....  

If you're a beginner, I'll help you read the cutting guide and teach you how to trim photos.  Bring a 12" paper trimmer, scissors, and scrapbook adhesive.  All this fun for only $8.

 This is a sample of the layout we will be doing.  You choose the paper that would complement the photos of the theme you want.  This layout was inspired by one I found on the Creative Scrapbooking  Magazine blog.  I'm looking to put black and white winter photos on it.


Here's a close-up of one section.


Here's another version so you can see what you might do with this layout.  It's still needs embellishments which I will add when I know what I want to do with this page.
