Big News.. New News...Super Great News...

Close to my Heart has a new book out that you can order from starting in August. This book has some awesome new stamps, home decor items, work on the go kits, embellishments, a new cricut cartridge and alcohol markers.

YES!!! (squealllll) ALCOHOL markers!! I was soooo excited to see them. I ♥ my alcohol markers. They make the images pop off your card and are so easy to use and blend. Want to know the best part about these? I'm sure if you've priced other alcohol markers, you've noticed that can be a bit pricey. But, these are only $5.95 for a set of two! For each color you pick, you will get a complementary color. When you look at the book, there is a colored dot beside each color. This dot will indicate your matching color. If there is a light dot, you will get a lighter hue, if the dot is a darker shade, you will get a darker hue to match the color you choose. I can't wait to get these in my hot little hands to try. Wouldn't a marker club be awesome? Let's find 10 people and get one started. :)

There are also some cute new Work on the Go Kits. They have one that is great for a Halloween Party, or if want a cute way to make treats for your trick or treaters. There is also a Scroll Album kit. You really have to see this one. It comes with an actual scroll that you roll out to decorate and them roll up to keep on your mantel or shelf. People just unroll the ribbon to check out the pictures. On to the card kits!! Yes.. some of you are strictly card markers only and CTMH listened! There are two card kits that are beautiful. One is for everyday cards and there is a Christmas card kit. The card kits come with everything you need to make 15 cards, including cards and envelopes.

I know you are excited to hear about the new Cricut cartridge, right? This cartridge has 700 images including a font, shapes, and 3d items. It also comes with 3 D size stamp sets, and 3 12"x9" dimensional elements in coordinating shapes.

Be watching the blog for more info about the cartridge.. and ways to get it cheaper ;) I have a special for the month of August, that I don't think you can pass!

If you've ever thought about becoming a Close to my Heart consultant now is the time to take the plunge because they just announced a brand new $49 Consultant Starter Kit that is full of $130 in product!  Not only that, starting August 1st and while supplies last, they'll send you a beautiful CTMH branded damask bag!

I'd love to have you join my team and share the fun!  To learn more about the benefits of becoming a consultant and to sign up, visit my site by clicking  here.

I can't wait to start showing you some new stuff... so I better start creating! Have a happy day everyone!

Old cards...

     I've been looking through photobucket at some of my older cards and realized I'd never shared this set with you. My mother-in-law loves to send cards! She has the most beautiful handwriting. Lucky for me, that makes gift giving easy. I always whip up a few sets of cards. Since she does mail them, I try to keep them clean and simple, which means no lumpy

     The first card is a stamp set from Close to my Heart called Gnome Garden. I don't think you can purchase it anymore, but I adore the images on this set!

     For the next two cards, I used stamp sets from the dollar bin at Michael's. They had some of the cutest images over the Spring!
$1 stamp- turtle


     I made two of each card, for a set of six. I also made a cute little card holder for them and tied ribbon around for a beautiful presentation. I can't seem to find a picture of that so you'll have to trust me ;) On all three cards, I used Copic markers to color in the images. 

     Check back in for more artwork tomorrow. Remember all that talk about a light box?? Well, guess what?? My dear sweet hubby finally made one!! Now, we have to figure out the best lighting to use for it.
