Paper Fundamentals combined with PML cards for super Layouts

Workshop is on Monday Nov.30th afternoon and evening. Make it your way with the CTMH Paper Fundamentals collection. I love hats and just had to photograph this one that I made to wear to an afternoon tea raising funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation - Grandmothers to Grandmothers event. I keep my PML cards in the stamp organizer from Close to My Heart and mix and match with the theme I am scrapping. Love these cards!

A Baby Card - Fundamentals and a new stamp set

It is always fun when the new Idea Book arrives and I immediately am drawn to some of the stamps right away while others grow on me. The Baby and Friends (B1505) stamp set was one of those sets. I couldn't resist the sweet baby face and right away thought - I need to make a card using this set. I chose the fundamentals paper because it is two sided and makes an interesting effect- shine on one side and matte on the other with a pattern. Circles were cut on the Cricut using Art Philosophy cartridge, the original and still available cartridge from Close to My Heart. Cut circle at 1 inch and repeat then return to top and repeat until you get the number of circles you would like to have for the card.

Other Materials- all Close to My Heart : Adventure Fundamentals Paper Pak (Z3125) , Token Alphabet (E1020) retired but lots of other alphabets will work, Shinhan Markers(various colours - love the Pastel Peach(Z2460) for skin tone, Black ink, and journaling pen(Z19790) for edge design  and puffy hearts for 3D on bib. (retired).

We are welcoming another baby to our clan in October and so excited to be thinking babies again.

New colours from the new Idea Book

Not entirely accurate when copied to the computer but the tones are correct.
The hex codes can be used to print in colour corresponding to the colours from CTMH.
