September 1 marks the launch of our new Holiday Expressions Catalog. Where have I been you might ask? The answer is Atlanta, GA. I was called into a special project for my day job at the last minute and have had little time to be involved in my love of Close to my Heart. Not a great excuse, I know, but it's the truth. Anyway, that's over and I'm excited to be back with you. This catalog is extra exciting because it houses our new paper kit offerings as well as a new digital Cricut Cartridge called City Sidewalks.
This cartridge is unique because it's only offered in the digital form therefore it will only work with the Cricut Explore and the Cricut Explore Air. It also is packaged differently then our other Cricut cartridges and doesn't come with stamp sets or paper so it's at a much lower price point, only $34.95. We also have a matching paper kit and embellishments called, of course, City Sidewalks! Here's a glance at that paper line.
There is so much more to share with you in this catalog and I'll be doing that over the next several days so stay tuned. You won't be disappointed!
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!

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.
