GreenHearts Team July Blog Hop "Anything Goes"

Hello and welcome to the July GreenHearts Close to my Heart Team Blog Hop.  If you came here from Sandra's Blog, you are on the right path.

This month, the team is featuring different items from the Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book.

Today, I am showcasing the Close to my Heart Paper Fundamentals - Basic Assortments.

I really love how versatile these cardstock based papers are and you get 20 double-sided 12" × 12" sheets (2 each of 10 designs); same design on both sides, one side with a glossy resist pattern.

Here is the layout I made using two different colors of the Paper Fundamentals.

I used the CTMH Cricut Cartridge Artbooking to make the Bamboo colored overlay as well as the Always & Forever saying.

All embellishments are from Close to my Heart:
Bronze Shimmer Tape
Chocolate Stripped Ribbon (retired)

Cocoa Ribbon (retired)
Bliss Assortments (retired)
Pearl Flourishes (retired)

I am a strong believer in using what you got.  I know alot of people who buy stuff but afraid to use it just in case they need it.  Well, guess what, use it, you can always get something else for the next layout.  LOL!!!

I hope you liked my layout.  Leave me a comment before heading over to Pam's Blog to see what she used for her blog hop.
