Unboxing My New Spring Supplies

Spring is one of my favorite seasons and I can’t wait to show you all of my new supplies from the March/April catalog. Since the beginning of February, I have had these gorgeous spring papers, stamps, and thin cuts sitting in my craft space just waiting to be used on my spring projects. Once you take a look at these new paper crafting goodies, you will understand why I can’t wait to start creating.


Each season, we have two new paper collections, some Mix-in papers, stamps, and thin cut dies. When I first opened the catalog, I immediately started making a wishlist and it just kept growing.

First on my list were the new paper collections and matching Cricut collections. Daisy Meadows and Eat Play Love are filled with bright, springtime shades and designs. Each of these collections also has a matching Cricut collection that coordinates perfectly with the paper pack, pocket cards, and stickers.

After adding the papers, stickers, and Cricut Collections to my carts, I grabbed a few packs of Mix-In papers. Many of you know that these are some of my favorite patterns to use on my projects. Our Mix-Ins are designed to coordinate with our current paper packs, but I love using them on all of my projects. The subtle designs and clean patterns are perfect for cards, scrapbooks, and home dΓ©cor.

Next on my list — KITS. These scrapbook and card kits are designed with you in mind. Each kit includes the supplies you need to make the project and they each teach you a new paper crafting technique you can use on your future projects.

In my Facebook group, I stream each of the Live events showing you how to make each of these kits. You can join me at the online events and create these kits with me during the workshop.

Each kit includes items that you cannot get anywhere else in the catalog. The stamps and dies in the card kits are only available with the kit, so, if you love those little cherries as much as I do, you will need to grab the kit. For those who are in my Facebook group, I offer the option to purchase more of the bulk papers that come in card kit. These are only available to consultants, but I know that many of you may want to make more cards – so I add this little perk for all my members.

After adding papers, stickers, pocket cards, and kits, I grabbed a few stamps and dies. There were two must-have sets on my wishlist, but I know that there will be a few on yours after you watch my catalog walkthrough video.

I also grabbed the two stamp of the month stamp sets. As a Maker, I can order these three months ahead of time which allows me to plan a few projects for you. Our stamp of the month sets are only available for one month. If you are a VIP, you can get these stamps FREE! Learn how to become a VIP.


Are you as excited as I am about all these new spring products? I bet the wheels are starting to turn and you just can’t wait to make something new. All of the items I shared with you are available in the March/April catalog while supplies last. If you would like a copy of the catalog, you can get one free with your order OR contact me and I can mail one to you. (I do ask that you pay the shipping costs to mail the catalogs.)

I hope you have a wonderful week and I look forward to seeing your spring projects.

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.
