Close To My Heart Introduces 8 New Colors!

I'm so excited that Close To My Heart's new Fall/Winter Idea Book is here!  Click here if you would like to see a virtual copy.  Email me if you'd like to come to a class and see them in person/use them.

They introduced 8 new colors this Idea Book.  I'm so excited to use them with the new stamp sets and papers. 

The new colors are all summer colors:  
Sky, Pacifica, Gypsy, Sunset, Pear, Lagoon, Cotton Candy and Smoothie.  


Retiring summer colors are Clover Meadow, Hydrangea, Orange, Star Spangled Blue, Bubblegum, Citrus Leaf, Ocean and Watermelon.  Let me know if you need something that's retiring -- supplies are limited.

Summer colors they are keeping are Holiday Red, Sunny Yellow, Topiary and Dutch Blue.

The new colors are updated and softer than the old colors.  I like them (although I will really miss Citrus Leaf.  Pear is a nice color though -- a little bluer, and not as bright.)

I wanted to use the new colors using the new stamp set, Party Pennants, for a simple make-n-take at by booth at Newcastle Days, next Saturday (September 11) at Lake Boren Park from 11am to 7pm  in Newcastle.  Stop by my booth to say HI or sign up for an upcoming fall workshop!

For the make-n-take, I curved the dotted line in the stamp set (it comes straight).  Love those flexible stamps!!!!

I also will be making a dressed up version for my class this month.  I LOVE this stamp set -- it's so happy!  Check back for the fancy version!
