Offically here

After "patiently" waiting for several weeks, those in attendance at my semi-annual open house have now received their free copy of the Close to My Heart Fall/Winter 2013 Idea Book.  We spent this morning looking through the pages and dreaming of all the possibilities with the new products.  Of course, everyone has their own favorite new paper pack.  Mine is the fall themed pack called Huntington, with Sarita being a close second.  What's yours? If you haven't had a chance to come by and pick up your personal copy of the new book, please take a few minutes and look at it on the website. 

We also took some time to put our hands on some of the new products.  Attendees picked one of these new products to take home with them.  I love being able to give away free stuff to my faithful customers.  

I will be planning out the fall workshop schedule in the next few weeks, but in the meantime, our workshop for August will take advantage of some of the well designed layouts from the CTMH How to Books and use up some of our leftover papers from the past idea book.  The workshop is scheduled for Saturday August 17 and is from 9:30-11:30.  For those of you who do not scrapbook, you have the option of making homemade greeting cards.   I love our workshops as we gather for a couple of hours once a month to have a wonderful time with our friends while doing something we are very passionate about. 

This is a great time to join us as we transition into the new idea book.  Feel free to join the group that meets on the 3rd Saturday of each month, or if you have a group of around 3-9 friends and would love to start a workshop group of your own, please contact me and we will get it started

It's that time again.  The new Fall/Winter 2013 Close to My Heart Idea Book will be revealed at my Open House.  The first Saturday in August please stop by between 9 and 12 to pick up your free copy of the new book.  As always, the new book has lots of wonderful new stuff and our new paper packs to carry us through the end of the year.   I will have some of the new items and paper packs on hand for you to see.  And let's not forget, of course there is a new Cricut cartridge sold exclusively by Close to My Heart.  I can't wait for show you how amazing this one is.

New Year and new creations.  One of the really useful projects sold by CTMH is what I refer to as a perpetual calendar.  It has a page for each month but simply lists the number of days, not the days of the week.  This is perfect for writing down birthdays and anniversaries.   The tops of each month are blank so you can embellish however you want.  Here are a couple of months that I have done just to give you an idea.

 The blank calendar can be purchased from the online website.  If you would like to purchase a kit of precut papers to embellish each month please contact me.
