I wanted to share with you a video that Close to my Heart presented giving a brief overview of our new annual catalog. It provides a quick look at some of our new products. Enjoy!
I have another new and exciting product to share with you today from our 2016-2017 Annual Inspirations Book. It's the Shimmer Brush. This product will allow you to add clear shimmer to your artwork. What's even better about this product is it's price...only $4.95. Much cheaper then similar products on the market. It's been so popular that Close to my Heart has been out of stock but they plan to have more in stock this week so keep your eyes open!

Today, as part of my new catalog review, I'd like to show you our new offerings in memory protectors. Close to my Heart has always been known for their flip flaps and with this catalog, that is still the case. However, Close to my Heart has also introduced Pocket Plus memory protectors. These will also allow you to add extra photos or artwork in your layouts, just in a slightly different way then our flip flaps do. First I'll show you our flip flaps. Close to my Heart has streamlined their offering of flip flaps to ensure you get exactly what you need for your layouts.
Next up are our Pocket Plus memory protectors. These are meant to lie in between the two sides of a two-page layout or as a standalone addition to your albums to provide variety and dimension. We offer four designs.
Close to my Heart offers so many products to make your scrapbook albums special! To order any of these product, simply click on a photo or visit my Close to my Heart Online Store.
Today we're taking a look at the new Thin Cuts and Embossing Folders Close to my Heart is offering in the new Annual Catalog. There is a wonderful selection of shapes and words that are perfect for both card making and scrapbooking. These along with our new embossing folders coordinate beautifully with our fundamentals creative collections creating a cohesive set of products for beautiful projects.
Aren't they awesome!! To purchase any of these products, simply click on the photo or visit my Close to my Heart Online Store.
Today I'd like to show you the new Fundamentals Creative Collections from Close to my Heart. These are our core papers reflecting each of our 40 colors in our color palette. They come in seven different collections and each reflect a different theme for your scrapbook pages. Our Whimsy collection has beautiful watercolor designs and soft pastel colors. Pair them with our new ribbon and our baby boy or baby girl complements and you have quick and easy baby pages. The complements can also be used in a non-baby theme for complete versatility. If you purchase the Whimsy papers and matching complements from me, you'll gain access to instructions for a 12 month set of baby layouts created by one our our wonderful consultants, Brenda Rose, from Close to my Heart. Here's a peek at Whimsy.
Next we have our Adventure Collection. This collection features bold and bright colors and designs. Add our complements and ribbons for an "Enjoy Life" set of scrapbook pages. Here's a look at Adventure.
Next up is Enchantment. This collection features rich colors and geometric designs. Pair it with coordinating ribbon and our school-themed complements and you have a K-12 book completed for your children or grandchildren. As with the Whimsy Complements, these complements are also versatile enough for any type of page, not just school-themed. Here's a look at Enchantment.
Last, but not least, we have our Basics Fundamentals Creative Collections. This collection has FOUR different paper packs associated with it and they are all gorgeous! First up is the Rustic Home Fundamentals and our Memo Fundamentals. These both pair nicely with our family themed All Together Complements and our Rustic Home Ribbon Pack. Here's a look at those.
Now we have our last set of Neutrals. The Uptown Fundamentals and All About the Gold fundamentals are modern and stylish and pair wonderfully with our You & Me Complements and the Uptown Ribbon Pack.
So many possibilities from these core paper collections in our new Annual Idea Book! I was thrilled when they premiered these at convention and can't wait to share some projects with you in the upcoming weeks. To purchase any of these products, simply click on the photos or visit my Close to my Heart Online Store.
Today I'm showcasing the Florence Workshops on the Go which happens to be the Featured Paper of the Month at Close to my Heart. As you can see, it has a beautiful rich color scheme with touches of Gold in the embellishments. With the Workshops on the Go Kit, you can make the first three traditional layouts I have pictured below along with the double sided pocket page layout. You also have enough material to make the 8 cards shown below, with a few extra purchases, OR you can use whatever stamp sets you have at home. This paper kit is my favorite from the Seasonal Expressions and it's only available now through August 31. The bottom two layouts are additional layouts we made in my scrapbook club in lieu of the cards.

Here are my posts and projects for the week ending August 6, 2016. I hope you all have a good weekend! For more information on any project you see below, simply click on the photo.
With the launch of the new annual catalog, Close to my Heart has introduced 7 new colors in our Adventure collection and a new "Color of the Year" called Sea Glass. Here's a peek at these beautiful colors.
The "Color of the Year" is a new offering by Close to my Heart and will be available until our next annual catalog comes out. All of these colors are currently available in our cardstock as well as our mini pigment pads. As mentioned on Wednesday, our newly designed ink pads are due to arrive late August and that is when the new colors will be available in our ink pads. Sea Glass is definitely my favorite and I'm also partial to Pansy! Get yours today by shopping at my Close to my Heart Online Store.
One of the new products I'm most excited about is the introduction of a new style of ink pad. I know many people have complained about how hard it was to open Close to my Heart Ink Pads but they've come up with a brilliant solution to that. Our new ink pads have a magnetic lid which you simply lift off the top and then place underneath the ink pad or to the side if you're doing any special techniques as the photo shows above. It's as simple as that. No more struggling and no more ink on your fingers!
Now, there is a slight delay in the offering of these new ink pads. They will be available later this month. As soon as they are, I will be sure to let you know. I don't even have my hands on them yet! As soon as I receive them, I'll do a short video to show you how wonderful they are. Until then, I'll keep showing you our new exciting products each day.
Today we take a look at the new Cricut Flower Market Cartridge from Close to my Heart. Since the booklet is not available yet on the Cricut website, I took some screen shots of the images from Cricut Design Space to give you a view of all images you'll receive when purchasing this cartridge.
As you can see, it's a wonderful and versatile cartridge. Be sure to get yours today! You can purchase the physical cartridge for $99 or you can purchase a digital version for $79. Both sets come with cardstock and three exclusive stamp sets that coordinate with the cartridge. Get yours today by visiting my Close to my Heart Online Store!
In the upcoming weeks I'm going to choose one of our new products each day and show you all about them. Stay tuned!
