Simply Fundamental Workshop

There are only a few days left to take advantage of the November special, the Simply Fundamental Bundle!  The bundle includes an album of your choice, the Paper Fundamentals Enchantment Pack, Fundamental Stickers Enchantment pack, Peacock Fundamentals Assortment, 3 sheets of White Daisy cardstock and a Value pack of page protectors. In addition to all that is already included, CTMH has developed a 10-page layout that can be created using the materials included in this bundle.  They have provided full color directions on how to cut and create all of these layouts!  Visit here for more information on how to obtain this package deal!

I love how easily these layouts all came together!  I tweaked them a bit to fit the needs of my pictures, and embellished a bit more with some of the leftover stickers. 

The first layout features New England Ivy, Fern, Goldrush and Peacock.  This is the version that CTMH created:
Ironically, I chose horse pictures to use in my layout as well.  These pictures were taken at Keeneland Race Track in Kentucky during our summer road trip!  The journaling lines were done using one of the journal stamps in the November Stamp of the Month (SOTM), Cheers, 2016!
You can really see the tone-on-tone glossy pattern in this image.  One side of the Fundamentals Paper is this tone-on-tone, the other side has the same pattern in white.  The glitter hearts, bow and wooden element shown here are from the Peacock Assortment (included in the bundle).
 The next layout features a Ruby, Sapphire and Saffron color combination. 
I altered the size of a few of the pictures to fit my needs, but otherwise, kept everything the same.  Again, the November SOTM provided the journal lines for this page. This was such a fun and playful layout, so fits perfectly with the pictures from our trip to "The Beach" - a massive ball pit that was on exhibit at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. this summer.
There are so many stickers included in the Fundamentals Sticker Packs (also included in the bundle special).  I have a ton leftover to use in other layouts!
My good old journaling pen provided the black outline in the title box.  Such a simple trick to make the title really pop!
 Next up, we're featuring Eggplant, Sapphire and Fern, with accents of Peacock. 
I swapped the title stickers between this layout and the horse one to better fit with my pictures.  However, there were still lots of title stickers leftover that I could have used as well!  We visit these Fountains every summer at one of our local shopping centers.  The water is FREEZING, but the kids love it on a hot, summer day!  The journal lines on this layout were created using the Documenting Moments stamp set.
The stickers are great on their own, or look fun tucked behind a picture.  That peacock point sticking out from behind the picture is actually a much bigger sticker.  I cut it in half so that I can use the same concept on another layout.
The peacock glitter stickers come in four shapes (circle, triangle, star and heart) and a variety of sizes!  There are 165 total glitter stickers on one sheet!
 The next layout combines Pomegranate, Peacock and Saffron!
The peacock accents in this reminded me of the water surround St. John!  These pictures from our day at Cinnamon Bay fit perfectly in the layout!  The Documents Moments stamp set was again used to create the journal lines.
 I swapped out the title to fit my needs, and used my journaling pen again to pop the title box!
You can really see the glossy tone-on-tone pattern in this picture too.  Those glitter stickers look great alone, or clustered together!
 The fifth and final layout features a Poppy, Goldrush and Sapphire color combination. 
St. John had the best snorkeling I've ever experienced.  In addition to all the beautiful reefs, we saw several sea turtles and rays!  The journal lines on this layout were created using the second journal stamp in the November SOTM, Cheers, 2016!
Clustered accents and alternating the tone-on-tone paper with the white design paper makes for such a beautiful layout!
I love how this little scrap of the peacock paper behind the title box really pulls this whole area together!!
Again, I was amazed at how quickly these layouts all came together!  I was able to adapt them to fit my needs, but had the basic design to get me started.  Remember, there are only 2 more days to take advantage of this bundle.

  1. I love the changes you made to the photo spots. I haven't yet put my layouts together, but you've inspired me. :) Rarely, do I ever have just 3 photos to scrap. LOL Merry Christmas!
