Autumn/Winter Idea Book Highlights

The ALL NEW Close To My Heart Idea Book is now "live," and it's time for me to share some of my favorites (in no particular order) from this edition.  (It is so much fun to see and play with all the new things!  We got lots of sneak peeks at Convention, so I will have more to share with you each month.)  If you'd like to browse through the Idea Book online, just click HERE, and if you don't already have a CTMH consultant, I'd be happy to hook you up with your own personal copy.
*Cricut Artbooking Cartridge/Collection
This Cricut cartridge is revolutionary!  It comes with 15 different themes preprogrammed on it.  Set your dial to the recommended size and cut away to get amazing, perfectly scaled scrapbooking page accents and overlays.  Mix it up if you're feeling adventurous!  It has 10 mini albums already to go, too (and we will be making some this fall).  Not a scrapper?  Don't worry, you can easily scale down the images to fit cards and so much more.  Plus, as with all of our Cricut cartridges, you get three exclusive coordinating stamp sets and three sheets of precut chipboard.  These collections are a steal at $99!  (I am interested in hosting Cricut classes, so please let me know if you're interested in learning more.)

*My Crush Books
The two My Crush journals are something new that you are going to love!  Even if you don't get into the whole "smash book" type journaling/scrapbooking, the additional page elements are something you are going to want to have and use.  My daughters can't wait for their books to come in!  They are going to become a fun journal of this school year- which starts for them on Tuesday.  I started back to work last Monday, so that explains why the blog has been a bit neglected.  More to come as we get back to school!

*Base & Bling
Necklaces, headbands, and rings, oh my!  CTMH has introduced a cool line of jewelry that is oh-so-much-more!  First, we have necklace, bracelet, ring, and headband metal bases that you can embellish to your hearts content.  Add some fabric flowers and our amazing Base and Bling embellishments for a trendy, unique statement piece.  Not sure the jewelry is for you?  I made a version of the necklace (above), available as a kit, and it is darling!  The embellishments are going to show up on just about everything I make (cards, scrapbooks, etc.) because they are gorgeous.

*Designed Decor
Decorate your home or office with one of our two Designed Decor frames, and then change out the featured artwork as desired.  The Colonial White frame has chicken wire to hold your lovelies; the black frame has rows of wire.  These are a fun way to display what's Close To your Heart!

*How-To Guides
Need help getting your groove on?  Make It from Your Heart, Volume 2 is now available, chock full of new scrapbook layout and card sketches.  ALL of our previous how-to publications are back in a convenient, affordable spiral-bound format.  I love these because they make it easy to be especially creative.

*Exclusive Hostess Stamps
Close To My Heart hostesses are being spoiled even more with the opportunity to purchase or earn several exclusive, hostess-only stamp sets, offered at a wonderful price.  I am looking for hostesses for upcoming classes and workshops, and hostessing is super easy (at my place OR yours), so please contact me if you'd like to learn more or would like to volunteer to get free CTMH products (inkyscrapper at gmail dot com).

Now that I've shared some of our new innovations, I'll be back in a few days to show off our gorgeous new paper collections!  No paper crafter's life would be complete with gorgeous paper!


  1. I will be glad when things settle down a little and I van get back to my paper crafting! So many neat things!

  2. Neat! I downloaded 600 photos. Gotta lotta work to do!
