The New Fall/Winter 2013 catalogs are about to arrive and once again excited about all the new and exciting products to come our way. Here is a list of some of our new products!

13 different Workshops on the Go kits! We have our core of eight great scrapbooking kits, plus we’re introducing two cardmaking Workshops on the Go kits and our first-ever home décor kits—a scroll album and an advent calendar. Now we know that our math doesn’t add up to 13 yet, but it will…
New marker sets! They have alcohol-based ink for better blending and smoother color. We even offer a new alcohol blending pen to help you blend with ease. Six beautiful new neutral colors were also introduced. But the color unveiling didn’t end there. Close To My Heart is adding sets of mini pigment ink pads to our lineup. They offer intensely vibrant color and are specially formulated for projects that will be out in the open, like home décor projects. That’s because pigment ink is super colorfast and light safe. It’s one of the best archival solutions around. You’ll get a stacked tower of 10 colors for just $19.95.
Another cool color reveal: Some current colors are being sent out to pasture so we’ll have a total of 42 colors.
Studio J has an awesome new addition—the new Studio J Express Collections were introduced! These allow you to create 10 professional-looking, themed layouts faster than ever—just add your photos, journaling, and you’re done! We’ve done all the work in putting together six themed collections of 10 detailed, beautiful custom layouts each, but you can take all the credit by just dragging and dropping in your photos to the finished layouts!
 New organizers, since they are sturdy and durable enough to fill with all your favorite stamp pads, tools, and accessories and come with a foam insert to make everything fit just so!
 Cricut® Artiste Collection! Every single element on the cartridge was personally selected and shaped by Jeanette, so it’s a cartridge that really thinks like you do. And what was that last Workshops on the Go kit? It’s called the Spellbound Cricut® kit and is an entire Halloween party complete with papers and embellishments that works hand-in-hand with the new Artiste cartridge!

I look forward to be able to share these great new products with you!
