I'm Back!!!

 After a great vacation and a busy week with my grandchildren I am looking forward to getting back to sharing paper crafting projects with you.  The new Autumn and Winter Close to my My Heart Idea Book goes live tomorrow (August 1st) and I am excited about the great new products shown within its covers.  Visit my website to view the book and then contact me for your own copy and/or to schedule a gathering. 

This little card was created with the new Cricut Artbooking Cartridge offered exclusively by Close to My Heart.  Check my blog often to see more projects that you can duplicate with your Cricut!

Time for Cards!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the new products that are coming available in August.  However, I want to emphasize that Close to My Heart remains committed to Stamping and Scrapbooking!  I know some of you are mainly card makers and I am excited to show you two card making kits you will love.  Both kits make 15 cards with envelopes and sell for $24.95.  Each kit comes with all the necessary papers, stamps and embellishments.  Not included are ink pads, adhesives and basic supplies.  Book a class with your friends--they purchase the kit--I provide the ink pads and instruction.  It is a lot of fun!
