Happy for everything NEW!

A New Year, new decade, new month, new expectations, renewed hope, new IDEA BOOK, new STAMP OF THE MONTH,  new FELICITY PAPER COLLECTION, and one of my favorites NEW WORKSHOPS! WHEW, did you get all of that? I am so stinkin excited, I can hardly wait to start the journey into 2010.

No, I have not gone deep undercover (well maybe a little). This last month has been a tough one for me. The demands of the Holidays plus not feeling well left me in survival mode for most of the month. I have been on Auto Pilot for the last 6 weeks or so.  I hope to now turn off Auto Pilot and take control of my ship again. This flight might be a bit long so grab a drink and a snack, buckle up, sit back and put your feet up and enjoy the ride while I tell you about all the exciting new things available from Close To My Heart.

It wouldn't be a new year without a new IDEA BOOK
(to view the entire book contact me or click on the image on the right side of my blog)

I just love the new Topstitch Paper Packet (x7120B) and coordinating stamps; Charmed (C1385) and Togetherness (D1402). Any kit that contains chocolate is O.K. in my book! This paper would be great for girlfriends, weddings, baby showers, family reunions, etc.

Another great kit is Caboodle (X7121C). The coordinating stamps are Playing Hard (C1387) which has a Track hoe, an airplane, a Skateboard, a scooter, and six other stamps. The other set Boys at Play (C1386) contains signs having to do with adventure such as Super Hero, Full of Fun, and Hangin Out. I love the soft colors of this kit. It has great colors for boys but it also has soft colors that would work for babies, summer, girls, birthdays, etc.

To see the other two new Paper Packets and tons of new accessories and stamps click on the Idea Book picture on the right of my blog. Make sure you check out the Soft Suede Pinwheel Flowers on page 91 and Top Coats on page 93. You also won't want to miss the new lower prices on the A sized stamp sets, now only $7.95. View four new A sized stamp sets on page 81.

This stamp set is only available January 1-31st. Click on the image of the Stamp of the Month on the right side of my blog to see the details of how you can get yours!

Felicity Collection (available thru January 31st or while supplies last)

Did you know that January is National Papercrafting month? The best way I can think of celebrating is to buy this Collection. The Felicity Collection features decorative die-cut paper, three gorgeous color schemes, and a D-size stamp set that include flowers, flourishes, argyle, birds, and an entire alphabet! Close to My Heart has even set up a blog with ideas on how to use the collection. I have included a link to the blog on the right side of my blog.

This collection has a retail value of $34.95. You can buy it outright, or get it free!

There are two ways to qualify for a FREE Felicity Collection:
  • Purchase a minimum of $60 in full-retail priced stamp sets (A, B, C, D, and E-size). (Excludes Stamp of the Month, Art & Soul®, Workshops on the Go™, and customizable (K) stamp sets.)
  • Place an order of $125 or more in full-retail priced Close To My Heart products.
  • The campaign also has enticing opportunities for hostesses and new Consultants. Hostesses get the package FREE with a Home Gathering sales total of $400 or more, and New Consultants who join Close To My Heart between January 1–31 will receive the package FREE in their New Consultant Kit.


Workshops will be on January 23rd from 10-12 a.m. We will be using the Bella kit from the summer 2009 Idea Book. The pages we will be doing will be a little different from the ones pictured above. The basic layout of the pages will be the same but I will be adding lollipop flowers. If you would like to join us please let me know by the 13th.

I hope this flight has been as enjoyable for you as it has been for me. Now that we have landed in 2010 I can hardly wait to see where our new adventures will take us.
