Hi everyone! Happy 4th of July to all my American friends. I hope you’re whooping it up wherever you are. I will be celebrating at Disney’s Magic Kingdom along with my family. We’re very excited!
You may or may not know I just attended a Close To My Heart Consultant Convention at Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida last weekend, and witnessed first hand the unveiling of the new Fall/Winter 2013 Idea Book. Woohoo – always a much anticipated event! With that unveiling, I was privy to the new products that will be available starting August 1st, so I thought it would be fun to give you a sneak peek too.
An exciting new product that is sure to be a hit for all you busy people is the My Crush Book. Available in two designs, it’s small enough to fit in your purse (7″x10″) so you can scrapbook on the go. Just stick in your memorabilia, photos and add a bit of journaling, then stick it back in your purse until the next memory opportunity strikes. No paper trimmer required!
Another new product for the jewelry lover is the base and bling assortment. Create your own necklaces, headbands, rings and bracelets with our new fabrics and accessories. If jewelry is not your thing, I saw some fabulous makes at convention using the bases as napkin rings, gift clips and other home décor items.
A brand, spanking new Cricut Cartridge called Artbooking. Let me tell you this is fabulous. It offers 700 images including designs and cutouts for 10 mini albums and 15 themed layouts. The best part is you can set your dial size to one number and it will cut everything in proportion. No more guessing what size to cut something! Is that terrific or what? I can’t wait to get mine!
I hope you enjoyed the CTMH Fall/Winter 2013 Idea Book sneak peek. There are still a few surprises I didn’t share with you so be sure to get your copy. Have a lovely day and happy crafting!
