The Little Black Dress . . . For Papercrafters!

Oh the little black dress—you can dress it up and you can dress it down, making it the perfect go-to outfit for any occasion. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a little black dress in the world of papercrafting? Oh wait, there is! Our Fundamentals line!

If you haven’t met our Fundamentals yet, you really should get acquainted. And we’re not just talking about pretty paper here. We’re talking the WHOLE Fundamentals line, which includes sticker packs and assortments as well!

Really quick, let’s give you the 411 about this line. Our Paper Fundamentals come in four different color palettes: Whimsy, Adventure, Enchantment, and Basics. Each pack comes with 20 sheets of cardstock in 10 of our exclusive colors, and this isn’t just any ol’ cardstock! Each side has a fun design, one in white and the other in a shiny gloss. These pair wonderfully with our paper packets (because they use our exclusive colors without demanding center stage), but they also add more intrigue to your artwork because they have subtle backgrounds and textures. AND you can also do really cool resistance inking with the glossy side of the paper, as you can see in this Instagram video.

Like the papers, the Fundamental sticker packs also come in the four color palettes to make color coordinating effortless. They include letters and cute designs, like hearts, arrows, and thought bubbles. Last but certainly not least, our Fundamental Assortments come in eight of our exclusive colors and include wooden badges, paper bows, plastic clips, and a sheet of glitter stickers. Yes, glitter!

As we’ve said before, Fundamentals are perfect for those busy gals who want to preserve their family’s memories tastefully but whose schedules, just today, include running dinner to a neighbor, attending three soccer games, and ironing a mile-high pile of laundry. Fundamentals make it easy to create fun scrapbook layouts without tons of product and time. BUT, for those of you who like taking a bit more time on your artwork, these take decorative scrapbooking to new heights! Take a look at this layout to see what we mean:
