Welcome to sneak peek two of our upcoming Close To My Heart Annual Idea Book 2016-17. The launch will start August 1st, so you are only 3 days away from seeing all the new and exciting products yourself.
Remember to order all items from the "Going Soon!" list you might like until July 31st, otherwise they will be gone! You can click HERE to see what is still available!
Let's continue our little sneak peek. I gave you a few ideas on what is coming your way in last Fridays blog post. Here are a few more changes and items you will get excited about:
- Cricut Cartridge:
Yes, we have 3 of our beloved CTMH exclusive Cricut Cartridges leave us, but in comes a brand new one that will get your crafting mojo flowing... Welcome "Cricut Flower Market Collection" to the Close to My Heart family. Over 700 different items and so many projects, this is a must have no matter if you are a card-maker, scraper or home-decor maker.
Yes, the Rolling Tote is leaving us too, but we will have some awesome new storage items to show you. I am just saying...."Di-Cluttering your counter and getting organized has never been easier!" And yes, all our awesome storage contains remain in the Idea Book. They are one of a kind and simple wonderful for storage, transportation and more. You don't have one yet? Oh, you have to try them! Click HERE to see all sizes that are available!
- Paper Packs: Looking through the new Idea Book you might ask yourself: "Where did the paper packs go?" Well, this is a change in program. In the old Idea Book you found six paper packs that were available for you to order for the length of the Idea Book cycle. Now these paper packs will be featured in the upcoming Seasonal Expressions Books and will only be available during the lifespan of the book. What does this mean to you? Paper pack will be available for 3/4 months and then retire and new once will be introduced. This guaranties a constant flow of new designs, new ideas and wonderful papers to work with. How many of these packs will be in the Season Expressions Books I don't know yet, but I will keep you updated in August when I get the chance to see the first book. You will be able to see them on September 1st!
- Stamp Sets: To bring more stamp sets and different designs, you will find only a few stamp sets in the annual Idea Book, but there will be more sets coming in each Seasonal Expressions Book. How long these will be available I don't know yet. We used to be able to order all stamps at least a year after they were shown in the Idea Book. I am not sure if this policy will continue with the Seasonal Books as well or if those sets retire by the end of each book too. More information regarding this issue will be coming your way in August as well.
- ...and more: There are many more new embellishments, thin dies, ribbons, Washi tape, glitter pens etc in the new Idea Book. Glitter paper and trim...
- Pocket Scrapbooking: I know not everyone is keen on the new trend in pocket scrap-booking, but I found it can be combined with the traditional page making in many ways. So I always mix my designs up and incorporate the pocket pages with my "normal" pages. There are many new products for pocket scrap-booking available. Acetate photo overlays, clear and gold embossed watercolor papers (and you get to fun to add the watercolors :-) ) and some super exciting new page-protectors. Can you think of partial pages???
Well, like I said at the beginning, we are only 3 days away from the launch of the new Close To My Heart Annual Idea Book. You can find the online version of the Idea Book on my website starting August 1st. If you like your own personal copy of the book or any of the upcoming Seasonal Expression books, feel free to contact me for more information.
