Give Yourself Some Happy Mail

Have you treated yourself to some happy mail lately? This year, I gifted myself to our cardmaking and scrapbooking Craft with Heart kits and I am truly enjoying how they cut down on the time it takes to create. Each quarter, new kits are designed with pre-printed bases, coordinating stickers, and die-cuts. All I need is adhesive and a pen!


With the scrapbooking subscription, I get one kit for every month of the year. Each of my kits has all the materials I need to create two coordinating 12″ x 12″ two-page layouts. I like to call these “slap & stick” kits because they are so each to slap together. I don’t need to cut anything out or stamp any images. If I feel like a layout needs a change, I can do that easily or add a few embellishments from my stash. I just like that I can quickly put together a layout – it saves me so much time.

You have multiple subscription options. Your best deal comes with the 12-month subscription where you receive FREE shipping as well as a coupon for free photo prints from Persnickety Prints. Here is a look at all the new layouts you will get in your subscription kit.


My cardmaking subscription kits arrive once every four months. They include an exclusive stamp set and all the materials I need to create a set of beautiful, handmade cards. No cutting or additional purchases need. All the die cuts are easy to punch out and I get envelopes, embellishments, inks, foam tape, and a stamping block all in one box. I can literally just grab this box, run out the door, and make my cards just about anywhere. The only thing I need to grab from my stash is adhesive.

With the January-April card kit, you’ll receive everything you need to make two of each of these cards. The stamp set that comes in the current cardmaking kit cannot be purchased anywhere else AND can be used on several of your future projects. Who wouldn’t want a stamp set full of sentiments??


There are multiple subscription options available on my website for you to choose from and you can cancel at any time. You even get reminder emails notifying you that that your subscription is on the way and before you are billed. I need little reminders like this in my life. If you would like to treat yourself to one or both of these kits, you can head on over to my website to learn more. They also make great gifts.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!

A Look at My New Favorites | An Unboxing Video

As a Maker, I have access to all the new goodies one month ahead of time, but my recent absence prevented me from being able to order in December.  The first thing I did when I got back, was order a few new goodies from the January/February catalog. I didn’t order much, but I was able to grab a few items I just couldn’t go without and I am going to share those here with you. 


Now that you have viewed the full catalog, let’s take a closer look at a few of the new product up-close. This season you are going to enjoy some new stamp sets, whimsical paper collections, and a few new items to help you with your slimline infatuation. 

Let’s start out with the paper collections. As always, we have two new pattern sets, a mix-in, and a few holiday/seasonal collections for you. 

This season you are going to enjoy creating with all of these new patterns. Our Happiness Lives Here collection has a vintage vibe with muted tones and fabric textures, while on the opposite side of the spectrum, we have the playful jungle themed Sweet Safari. Both of these can be pulled all together using our Mix-Ins which are designed as simple patterns that play well with just about any paper collection. 

Each paper collections has coordinating stamp sets, scrapbook kits, cardmaking kits and Cricut collections. In my catalog walk through video, I show you all the components that come with each of our scrapbook kits. These kits are so simple to put together and they create some beautiful pages to showcase your photos and memories.  


If you are looking for a few new acrylix stamps and thin cut dies to add your collection, you need go no further.  I am going to share with you the ones that shouted “pick me” the minute I opened the catalog. 

I am sure you can guess which stamp set was jumping up and down first. Of course! It was the Whole Latte Love stamp & thin cuts because I just had to have another coffee themed stamp.  After adding that one to my cart, I spied the Heart Full of Love stamps. 

The Heart Full of Love stamp was one that I knew I would use – after all, who doesn’t love a heart shaped shaker card. This set is designed to work with out Heart Shaker Window Thin Cuts and Acetate Windows to help you create a simple shaker to send to a friend who might need a little pick-me-up. 

I also grabbed a few packs of our new Slimline Cards, some adorable Iridescent Flower Confetti, and two new thin cut dies. With Slimline cards being all the rage right now, we have a new die designed to help you create some stunning designs. 

The Diagonal Stripe Slimline die has a wonderful stitching detail around the perimeter creating the perfect design for your slimline card project.  There are also two new Pennant Thin Cut dies that my friend Katy used to create some bookmarks. They are just too cute!


Last, but not least, we have our stamp of the month sets.  People often forget that these stamps are only available during the month they are released – once that month is over, you can’t get them again.

Did you know that you can get a stamp of the month for FREE as a VIP, or, if you are not a VIP, for only $5.00 with a $50 purchase from my website? This is an amazing deal so make sure you snag those stamp sets before the month is over. 

Not only do you get that stamp set free as a VIP, you also earn 15% cash-credit rewards towards future purchases.  If you love Close to My Heart as much as I do, then becoming a VIP is a no-brainer if it means you can get more crafty goodies.

If you REALLY love using Close to My Heart papers & stamps, then you should probably consider joining our team as a Maker. There are so many perks to being a Maker at CTMH!


So many spectacular crafting products in one little catalog!

If you would like to see the new catalog in more detail, you can view it on my website OR get a physical copy in your hand when you place an online order.  If you are one of my VIPs, and you can’t place an order this month, you can contact me and request a copy and I’ll mail one to you. 

I hope that you are doing well, staying healthy, and getting a little crafting time in. I can’t wait to see what you create with all of these new Close to My Heart products.
