Last week, while I was on vacation, Close To My Heart held their annual convention for consultants in Disneyworld. I always enjoyed being at convention with my friends, and sharing the excitement when new products are released. Of course, the most exciting moment is seeing the new Idea Book!
As always, the book doesn't disappoint, there are many new and exciting products. This fall, there's even a new Cricut cartridge, called Artbooking!
Close To My Heart already has two exclusive cartridges, the Art Philosophy, and the Artiste. As is our standard, the cartridge comes with three stamp sets, and three sheets of chipboard Dimensional Elements that coordinate with the images on the cartridge. This is really a bargain for the price!
If you'd like to get your own copy of the brand new Idea Book, let me know! I can get one in the mail to you this week, and you'll have plenty of time to drool over it before the new items are available August 1st. You can purchase your book via the Idea Book tab on the right sidebar.
While waiting for your new book, you can enjoy some Close To My Heart freebies! Starting this month, Close To My Heart will be releasing free artwork to download, including colorful gift tags, notepaper, home decor, and more! You'll find "Rediscover" ads in Creating Keepsakes, Paper Crafts, and Scrapbook & Cards Today magazines telling you where to find your freebies, as well as here on my blog! This month is a sheet of 8 tags, with the words "You Make Me Happy." The tags are several different colors, so you have many options.
I wanted to try these tags for myself, but I didn't have much time. I pulled out my CTMH Originals card making idea book, and put together a very quick card:
I'm anxious to try a few more fun ideas with these tags. By clicking on the "Rediscover" link on my right sidebar, you can download your own set of free tags.
