Fundamentals Fun

It is the beginning of February and I am starting to feel the winter blues.  I am over the cold days and it is that time to start dreaming  about Spring.  I just read that infamous groundhog didn't cast a shadow this year, so I guess there is hope.

Even if the sun refuses to shine most days here in Idaho, I decided to take things in my own hands and find some sunshine in my craft room.

The Paper Fundamentals from Close to My Heart was a perfect choice to brighten my day.  There are so many colors and patterns to choose from this paper line.  One side of the paper has a pretty pattern and the other side of the paper is a solid color with a glossy finish.  I think it was the perfect combination to make these fun and vibrant cards.

I used the new Springtime Wishes Thincuts set and the Springtime Wishes stamp set to create the flowers and leaves.  Thincuts use your embossing/die cutting machine to cut out coordinating stamp shapes. When you see an outline of blue around certain CTMH stamps--there is a coordinating Thincut.  This makes it nice when you want to make a project, but don't have time to bring out your Cricut machine.

If you are in the Boise area and would like to make a set of cards for yourself, I will be teaching this class in March.  All of the details and signup information can be found on my Meetup page at the following link:
