Craft With Heart

I am so excited to announce that Close To My Heart is introducing a monthly subscription service featuring Cut Above layout kits called Craft with Heart. This is a beautiful way to preserve your memories with a layout kit for every month of the year.

Each layout kit comes ready to assemble with enough to create 2 2-page layouts. You will receive: pre-printed base pages, pre-cut paper pieces, die-cuts, stickers, 3 Memory Protectors and instructions. 

The subscription is offered at monthly, 4-month, and 12-month intervals. You just need to decide how often you would like to receive Craft with Heart deliveries, sign up online, and receive exclusive Cut Above layout kits delivered straight to your doorstep. All subscriptions renew automatically. You can cancel anytime.

To get started with Craft with Heart, click here to go to the subscription page on my website. From there you will choose the subscription option that works best for you and sign up online. Once subscribed, you will begin receiving deliveries of exclusive layout kits, one for each month. You'll receive deliveries either monthly or every four months depending on your subscription choice. (The 12-month option is the only one right now the monthly and 4-month options will be available as of September 1st). 

I am so excited to create the pages from these kits. Here is a quick peek of the September layouts:

Going, Going, Gone!

It's hard to believe but we are nearing the end of the month of August which also brings the end of the Annual Inspirations Catalog for 2017-2018 and the Seasonal Expressions 2 Catalog for 2018 for Close To My Heart. I am sad to see items from these catalogs retiring but also excited for the change in the seasons and the release of the new Holiday Expressions 2018 Catalog on September 1st.

Seasonal Expressions 2 Catalog
If you loved the paper collections from the Seasonal Expressions catalog as much as I did, now is the time to hop on over to my online store to shop before they are gone. Some of the collections are already at low quantities available.

Central Park Collection

Beautiful Friendship Collection

Fresh Air Collection

Documented Collection
In addition to the products from the Seasonal Expressions Catalog there are other items from the Annual Inspirations Catalog that are retiring including some of the Exclusive Ink colors. Close To My Heart is retiring 10 of the colors from the core product line along with Bashful, the color of the year from 2017-2018. If you enjoy using these colors as much as I do it's a great time to stock up on the cardstock, ink pads and re-inkers before they are gone.

Hop on over to the Going Soon section of my website to see the full list of products that will be discontinued as of August 31st. While you are there checkout the Clearance section as well for even more products available at a discount.

For the Love of Crafting

I am absolutely in love with the August Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart! For the Love of Crafting is such a versatile set and perfect for expressing our passions!

I had fun working with this set along with the featured paper collection of the month - Documented. The paper pack, stamps and embellishments were perfect to create some cards to celebrate my love of crafts.

 I added a little bit of something extra to the flowers using the Clear Shimmer Brush.

I am really liking the colors in the Documented paper collection. The Eggplant, New England Ivy and Bashful colors really work well together.

Using some more of the papers I cut following the One-Sheet-Wonder technique I did some variations using the Documented Card Making Stamp Set.
