New Fundamental Papers are anything but Basic!

Today's post comes from a recent "Make It From Your Heart" blog post by the CTMH Home Office.  I wanted to make SURE you saw this gorgeous artwork - and thought I'd take a moment to post it on my personal blog too! ;)  
Take a look at this BEAUTIFUL artwork, created by the very talented & my fellow CTMH Consultant, Executive Director Karen Pedersen.  She has created these pieces of artwork by combining our NEWEST papers - Whimsy, Adventure, Enchantment, and Basics Fundamentals.
And right now, during August 2016,  when you buy the Whimsy, Adventure, 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.
