You can easily VIEW the RETIRING PRODUCT LINE here on my site.  Some items that are no longer available are the Chocolate and Outdoor Denim Faux Leather albums, Snowhaven Complements … and 1″ posts. However, the 1/2″ posts are still available for expanding our faux leather albums which can be found on this LINK.  Additionally, Brushed & Wanderful Workshops on the Go are SOLD OUT but the paper pack and complements can be purchased while supplies last.

I know many of you LOVE our color palette and will want to know what colors are retiring.

These are great items to buy in July while they are still available and at the lower price!  I’ve posted a table below of items which will be increasing in price:

A Different Take on the Japanese Blossom Card

Check out this variation on the Japanese Blossom card from my recent Feathers ‘n Flowers Workshop:

 

photo-10

 

As usual, one of the workshop participants, Kanako, decided to change it up a little, and I love her results!  She flipped the Fundamentals Cardstock over to reveal the glossy resist hexagon pattern and sponged it lightly with Sorbet ink to bring out the pattern.  The warmer look goes well with the card.  She also colored the flower in shades of purple which nicely complements the purple rectangle on the card. Finally, she used a 1/8″ white satin ribbon in place of the metallic Baker’s twine used on the original.  I really liked her changes and wanted to give a shout-out to her artistic variations on the original card.

In other news….

Close To My Heart has just released their Retiring List. You can find it on my CTMH website under “SHOP” to see the list of items alongside pictures of each item. Most notably, five of the colors in the Whimsy collection are retiring, along with their ink pads, markers, card stock and re-inkers…  Creme Brûlée, Buttercup, Twilight, Sky and Blush.  I will be sad to see some of these go as Blush is my favorite pink to date and Twilight looks great with almost anything! I know they will make way for five new colors that are spot on-trend though, so I’m excited for that.  I”m hoping for a teal color and perhaps a cantaloupe type color.  What colors would you love to see?  Shoot me an email at the address listed below and if you’re right there’s a free stamp set in it for you!  The new Idea Book goes live on August 1st, so check back in them to find out….

 

In the meantime….

Here’s another money saving special for you: In honor of our founder and CEO Jeanette Lynton’s 30-year anniversary in the stamping and scrapbooking industry, when you place an order totaling $50 during the month of June, you can add your choice of 1 of 6 great gift collections to your order for just $30!

G’Day Mates!

This month’s Cardmaking class features six fun stamp sets from Down Under!  With the opening of CTMH’s Austral-Asia market, we have new stamp sets featuring kangaroos, koala’s and kiwi’s… in addition to other native flora and fauna.  We’ll make two each of the fun cards shown in the pictures below.

 

It’s a lovely coincidence that some of my best friends and scrapbooking buddies here are Australians. Come join us and learn the meaning of Aussie phrases such as “Beaut Work Cobber” and “On ya mate!” from our very own real-live Australian gals! 

April’s card making workshop features EIGHT different “Aussie” cards:

 

Aussie card down under Aussie card on ya mate Aussie card hip hooray Aussie card floral thanks Aussie card turtles Aussie card newzealand Aussie card dear friend Aussie card hoppy bday

 

Once I got started playing with these fun images, it was hard to stop!

 

These cards feature six new stamp sets featuring images from Australia and New Zealand, from the Austral-Asia version of Close To My Heart’s 2014 Idea Book.
