I absolutely LOVE the current Close To My Heart stamp of the month called: Just Treats. It’s perfect for year round cardmaking and I’ve already made to holiday-ish cards that I am eager to share with you. But, I didn’t want to jump right into winter and skip all of the “good” stuff in between. Ha ha. You can purchase this set at retail, or, when you spend $50 it’s just $5. It’s a great deal!

I created a candy background based on the colors of CTMH’s new paper pack called Oh What Fun. It’s designed to be a nontraditional holiday paper pack – but you can see it works for more than that!

I used CTMH’s retired Splash of Color to highlight some of the sentiment in Pixie ink. Even though that set is no longer available, Close To My Heart has a new set called Watercolor Impressions that is probably even better! These are fun ways to add some color to your background without having to over think things. I struggle for my “splashes” or color washes to look just right so these are super helpful for that. You also don’t have to worry about wet and warped paper! yay!

The last thing that you may notice in my picture is the new thin cut dies from CTMH. This is a set of 10 Decorative Border dies – with some great patterns. My package arrived last night and I dug right in to try them out. They are a little pricey but there are 10 dies and they make a great hostess half price item – so if you’d like to book a party with me, send me a note! The new Close To My Heart Holiday Expressions catalog is now live and you can hostess an ONLINE party – items ship directly to each person. It can get an easier than that!
