Happy Birthday Close to My Heart

Did you know that Close to My Heart is celebrating it's 30th Year Anniversary? The company is going strong and expanding internationally and I anticipate the company being around for along time.

As you already know there's a BRAND NEW IDEA BOOK. It's jammed packed with more paper packets and stamps that you can purchase from now until July 2015. Once the new idea book is launched in August of 2015 only brand new products will be made available. That means that paper packets, workshop on the go kits, stamps, embellishments, home decor, and so much more won't be available for purchase. But that's okay because we always fall in love with the new stuff too.

In this New Idea Book there's a NEW Cricut Cartridge Collection called Artfully Sent Z3017 found on page 140! More WASHI Tape on page 173! More jewelry and home decor crafting projects. I love the Picture My Life kits on pages 146-147. If you have ever been pressed for time to scrapbook then this type of scrapbooking is for you. I'll show case some of my projects in the future.

For right now, I wanted to include one project I created that meets both MOJO Monday's and Heart to Heart Blog Challenges.

I used the MOJO358 Sketch.

Following the Heart to Heart Challenge of creating a project relating to a song. My theme is Happy Birthday to You!  I used Confetti Wishes Paper Packet X7189B found in the New Idea Book along with a recently discontinued stamp called Teddy Bear Wishes A1143.

To recreate this card the dimensions are as follows:
I hope you enjoy the New Idea Book. Thanks for visiting!
