Okay Back to the What’s New now!!!

Color of the Year, so what does this really mean? Well it will be a beautiful color that is offered for the full AI year with matching card stock, ink, ink refill, and glitter paper!

Talking about colors, Adventure palette got an update and has 7 new colors that replaced 7 older colors. The New colors are Pansy, Emerald, Willow, Lemon, Tangerine, Blossom, and Raspberry. These vibrant colors will be available in Cardstock, ink, and inkier refills. The best way to get all these wonderful colors at once is to order the Adventure Cardstock combo pack (# X5940)and you will get 2 sheets of each new color plus the other 3 colors for a total of 20 sheets!

Albums have the option of D-ring or Post with a faux leather exterior with 6 color options!

Memory protectors and Flip Flaps have had a few minor changes to them. Memory protectors are a great option to add in the extra photos without creating additional page layouts. Don’t forget about Flip Flaps which are a great way to quickly had dimension and surprise to any layout! The only change for these is the orientation you can add them to layout horizontal or vertical in the sizes 3×4, 4×6 and 5×7 which I couldn’t be happier about!

Lets Talk about Fundamentals!!! They are updated and so refreshing! I can’t believe how well the paper coordinates with the new complaints and new Ribbon packs!

******Basically the Best*********
For the month of August you can get in on an amazing deal! Thinking you need the New Fundamentals? Here’s the Deal for you, When you buy Whimsy,Adventure, and Enchantment you can choose one of the Basic: Rustic Home or Uptown Fundamentals for FREE!!!

Picture my Life Overlays are the perfect touch for those Cards or layouts that just need a little something more! Also 2 New Sets of PML cards!

I was sad when they said some of the older CTMH Cricut cartridges were retiring, but WOW am I HAPPY with the NEW Flower Market Cartridge, I have not gotten to play with it yet but I will soon and I can’t wait to share the awesomeness that it has to offer! This Cartridge bundle will come with the Adventure Cardstock combo pack and 3 exclusive Stamp sets.

Close to my Heart is also really stepping things up when it comes to getting organized they have created a new line called Workspace Wonder and it’s sure to transform your work area in to usable and functional workplace! This line is not yet available as CTMH is waiting on it’s shipment to arrive but I will let you know when it ready to be ordered!!!

New embossing Folder, New Thin Cuts, New My Acrylic Stamp sets, New Glitter Paper, and Clear Sparkles(Bitty Sparkles big sister)! So much Newness it’s going to be hard to decide what I have to have now and what I can wait to buy!

But that’s not all, I saved what I would have to say is my #1 favorite product with the release and that is the Shimmer Brush! You most likely have used something similar called wink of Stella. So what’s so special about CTMH shimmer brush??? First off I like the price point, second off It’s only offered in 1 color and that clear shimmer. And your probably thinking well I like having lots of color choices…worry no longer as long as you have the ink you can create any color your heart desires! All you have to do is use the brush tip and pick up a little ink off the pad or you can drop a drop from the re-inker bottle and pick it up that way too. The one thing I would suggest is to have a different shimmer pen for each hue so the colors don’t get mixed into a yucky looking color or you can clean the shimmer brush before changing to another ink color!

WOW, I feel like that was a mouth full but I wanted you to have all the ins and outs of the New goodies!

Don’t forget the Stamp of the Month when you spend $50 you can get it for just $5!

Who wants a Christmas Present Early??? I know what your thinking….what’s the catch? Yes, there is a catch but really it is like having Christmas early!
In the Bag CTMH Kit

I couldn’t be any more excited about this opportunity! Makes me wish I was able to join my Team! I Love the Bag and that it will hold 12×12 layouts! I took the Close to My Heart opportunity about 18 months ago for Really only 1 Reason, CTMH was offering a Free CTMH cricut cartridge with the Kit! That’s all I wanted and then I was going to be done….Well here I am 18 months later and I am my own best customer! As I have ventured into this business, okay hobby I am always looking for the best deal on the latest product I just have to have! To me, it just makes sense if you LOVE the product, you should be buying from yourself to get a discount! I do have a customer here and there but for me it’s just about doing what I love to do, Crafting! So, I got to thinking, I need to offer this opportunity to my fellow crafters because after all Crafting with friends is WAY better! Are your wheels turning just a little? “I do like a good deal but this business things not for me” Really it’s okay if you just want the discount, I’m pretty good at being my own best customer too, so no matter what I will be behind you Cheering you on!
How’s that Present sounding now? Just let me know and and I will be Happy to help you wrap it up, so we can toast to your New Adventure!
