Idea Book Preview Week

Happy Monday!

I am so excited to spend this week showcasing some of the awesome new product in Close To My Heart's Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book.  Stop by each day to catch a sneak peek and get your inner crafter inspired and excited. 

You can begin ordering these new products on August 1st from my website.  If you have any questions, you can also email me.

Okay, on to today's featured product:


I know what you're thinking..."The big sneak peak is a bunch of CARDS?"  Hang with me for just a sec here.  Below you'll see a little bit of everything CTMH has to offer that's new: paper, embellishments, stamps and Cricut Artiste shapes (yes, there's a NEW Cricut cartridge!)

The cards were designed by CTMH's Art Department and were given to us in pieces to put together at Convention in Dallas, TX two weeks ago.  My favorite thing about them is that they mixed and matched paper from different paper packs...genius!  (I'll list the papers and embellishments used at the end).

This card is my favorite:

Don't you love how there's a "card wrapper" that fits around the card!?  I love the sentiment "let's hang out" and adore those little black sparkles at the waist of the dress.  I can just see sending this card to a group of girlfriends, inviting them for a girls' night out!

The adorable sentiments are part of the new stamp set, Pun Fun (C1505)!

Want to know how you can make these cards for FREE?  Place an order for the new Cricut Artiste cartridge before August 31st and I'll invite you to a crafty evening at my place where everything will be cut out for you.  If you're not local, I'll send you the materials already cut and stamped!
