Close To My Heart Holidays From The Heart Gift Guide

Finally, the Holidays From The Heart Gift Guide is here!  This is the first time that I remember CTMH releasing an Idea Book supplement and the just released products are terrific.  The Gift Guide is a 21 page pamphlet that contains a new paper packet, a gift bag set, stamps, sparkles ... oh my!  :o)

This is a card that I made using the new paper that is called "Sparkle and Shine."  The paper packet is hard to describe as the patterns include fun ornaments, polka dots, hounds tooth, a lattice pattern and these traditional stripe and small pattern papers used in my card.  The coordinating colors are Ruby, Slate, Whisper, Juniper and Sparkle and Shine Gray.  I think Topiary green would also look terrific.  This adorable little bird and the sentiment are from the Season's Tweeting Gift Bag Kit (Z1913.)  That kit is another one of those terrific deals that CTMH offers....6 large muslin patterned bags, a stamp set and the die cut tags that you need to spice up your gift giving.  And, the stamp set is so cute, after your bags are made, you use the stamp set to make cards.  :o)

If you click on the cover, the link will take you to a place to view all the fun products in the guide.  I also just want to say, that not everything in the guide is Christmas based.  There are great stamp sets for Valentines Day along with a stamp set that has a Hot Air Balloon!  Some of the items in the Gift Guide are "While Supplies Last," while others are sneak peaks at items that will be in the Spring 2014 book.  So my suggestion is to check out the guide on my website and make sure you get in on the fun!  By the way, if you order over $100 from either the guide or the current IB, you'll get to pick one of the marked items in the book for free!  The potentially free items are clearly marked with a star in the guide.

I hope you enjoy the guide!  For Now, Happy Crafting!
