Just like cleaning closets…

To make room for new you need to clean out the old (or so I’ve been told).  Although I may not always follow that practice when it comes to my own closets,  at Close To My Heart we have to in order to make room for all the exciting, new products coming August 1.  

From the 2015-2016 Annual Inspirations book we have seven colors from our Adventure collection retiring along with home decor and gift products, all the B&T and Fundamentals paper packs and more stamp sets than I can shake a stick at. If I weren’t so excited about the new items headed our way it might make me a bit sad to say goodbye to some tried and true favorites. 
This short video showcases only a portion of retiring products. Click here to see the whole shebang. 

Superheroes – Craft Style

image

Recently I attended a weekend scrapbook crop with my friends aka ScrapBunnies.  The theme for the weekend was superheroes so we were Super ScrapBunnies – each with our own special crafting powers/abilities; techniques were deemed to be my strong suit. For our costumes we each created a chest plate to depict our special “powers”.

Above picture is of my finished project – how many of these techniques have you used in your papercrafting?

Where does the time go?

What a summer – it’s been too long since my last post and there’s quite a bit to share.  An incredible Alaskan vacation (pictures of which I’m sure you’ll see in future artwork posts), fun crops with my Scrapbunny friends and always a good breakfast with the OVOBC crowd.  But I’m not the only one keeping busy, the Close To My Heart team has been getting ready for the release of our new Annual Inspirations idea book – coming September 1st – and all the wonderful new products.  New is exciting but sometimes we’re not quite ready to let go of the familiar.  If that applies to you, you may want to click over to my website and check out the list of items retiring at the end of August.  Included on the list are some tried and true colors that are part of our Enchantment collection.

Retiring 8-31-15
Indian Corn Blue, Autumn Terracotta, Olive, Outdoor Denim, Smokey Plum and Barn Red.

Most of these colors have been part of the CTMH lineup for as long as I’ve been scrapbooking and have earned their retirement.  Contact me or visit my website to replenish your cardstock, stamps and re-inkers in your favorite colors before they’re gone.
