Fruits, Veggies, and Water

I am looking through several posts on my Facebook page tonight and found this YouTube video by Aktuelles aus der Kartenwerkstatt. Today is my first day on Weight Watchers and of course all I can think about is food that I cannot have. Trying to keep my mind occupied with scrapbooking. The first two weeks of a diet are the worst. Oh the cravings! Okay I digress......I am not really a "flower" user on my pages or cards, but I love this white, blue, and gray one and the pretty floral pattern flower shown in her video. Just beautiful flowers. My friend Cathy will love these. Both of us are Close To My Heart consultants and we sell and promote the Cricut cartridges. I know we have these images on one of our three cartridges without using or buying a new die. The cool thing is we can make them any size we wish using the cartridge. No limit on the size. I can already image these in many sizes and using several vintage pattern papers and attaching them on an old wooden picture frame or on the cover of a mini album. Enjoy!

Happy Scrapping............Cheryl

New catalog changes with Close To My Heart

Close To My Heart has just announced exciting new changes regarding our catalog. I posted them earlier on my Facebook Close To My Heart page, but thought I would share it here too. 

Great news everyone!  Close To My Heart is changing their catalog format. Effective August 2014 we will go to a "yearly catalog" instead of a bi-annual catalog. I love this new change and will be looking forward to having it in my inky little fingers this fall! The new catalog will have a finished size of 8 1/2" x 11", have 192 pages of new and creative awesomeness, and will also have a new name. With this new release, Close To My Heart will be calling their annual catalogs "Annual Inspirations". The new roll out will start in August 2014 and will be current through August 2015! Our new catalog will also offer twelve brand new "Stamp of the Month" stamp sets and nine new, delicious paper collections with cordinating accessories! Want some more great news? We will also be adding TWO 32 page seasonal books along with our annual catalog. These will be called our "Seasonal Expressions." The first book will be released in December 2014 and the second one to follow in April 2015. So now we will have more reasons to love our Close To My Heart products.
