Close To My Heart New Exclusive Colors!

September 1 is just around the corner. "What happens on September 1?" you ask! The new Close To My Heart Autumn/Winter Idea Book goes live and you will be able to view it page-by-delicious-page right here on my blog that day. There are LOTS of fun new products, gorgeous new scrapbooking and card kits, dozens and dozens of new stamp sets, and (drum roll please)....8 NEW COLORS that have been added to our exclusive color palette.

A couple of days ago I was doing a little blog surfing and happened to stop by my talented bloggin' friend, Karla's blog. Right there before my very eyes was a card that stopped my heart. BEAUTIFUL! Not only was it gorgeous, but it used my current favorite stamp set (Damask Tiles) and showcased one of our new colors (Smoothie) perfectly. I coudn't stand it any longer! I dropped what I was doing (making a cutting guide for an upcoming class I will be hosting in October) and pulled out the supplies to make a card similar to Karla's. I decided while I was at it, I would use her card as inspiration for cards of my own to showcase ALL EIGHT of the new colors. Thank you, Karla for your creativity and sharing you amazing creations on your blog to inspire people like me!

Now, on to the new colors. Like I said, there are 8 new colors. I know there are only 7 cards. I was just trying to confuse you. lol. Actually, one of the 8 colors is the same on all 7 cards. The "Thinking of You" piece and bottom border on every card are done on Lagoon cardstock. Now, clockwise from the top left, the damask tiles on each card are stamped in the following colors: Sky, Pacifica, Cotton Candy, Sunset, Pear, Smoothie, and the middle card is Gypsy. How delicious are those colors (and I'm not just talking about their names)? I can't even choose a favorite because I love them all.

While you are anticipating the new colors going live on September 1, feel free to stop by my website where you can order our already wonderful products 24/7...even in your jammies!
