My Top CTMH Picks



One of my club members (Julee) asked me a really great question this morning...What was on my must have list? Why have I never posted that before! I have to admit there really isn't anything I don't love with Close To My Heart, their products are just so darn superior, but of course I have some favorites. So drum roll please.....here are my top picks and they're not in any type of order.

1. 3-D Foam Tape - Z1151 $5.95 it's the best I've ever used...so easy and is just great to add dimension to layouts or cards.

2. Edge Distresser - Z1297 $2.50 who wouldn't love this inexpensive little tool of gold.

3. Micro Tip Scissors - Z534 $9.95 - now shipping in the adorable Spring Iris Color. I use to think the Cutter Bee scissors were the best...we beat those hands down. Slices through ribbon like butter.....LOVE THEM!

4. Emporium Level 2 Paper Pack - X7105B - $12.95 - this pattern is so darn versatile...great for girls or guys. It's the number paper pack with CTMH and I see why. I use it all the time.

5. Wishes Card Confidence Program - 9033 $29.95 You'll never be stumped for ideas again...and it even comes with a CD filled will all sorts of templates...AWESOME!

6. Liquid Glass Z679 $6.95 - Number one selling item from CTMH and if you've ever used it you would so understand why.

7. Piercing Tool Kit - Z1114 - $5.95 - Heck I'm about to order another one of these just so I'll have two and can always lay my hand on one...they are so great!

8. Dry Embossing/ Scoring Stylus - Z608 - $3.25 - with our cardstock being white core this is a great tool to dry emboss and then sand to really make your projects POP!

9. Cupcake Sprinkles Stamp Set - D1336 - $22.95 - This is the most popular stamp set from CTMH and it's adorable. It was the stamp set I did my first make and take with...so it's dear to my heart.

10. Veranda Level Two Paper Pack - X7119B - $12.95 - E-L-E-G-A-N-T enough said.

11. Perfect Day Level Two Paper Pack - X7100B - $12.95 This paper pack is the reason I joined CTMH to become a consultant and it's truly the collection that changed my life.

12. Cranberry Ink Pad - Z1116 - $5.25 The richest color of red you'll find and who doesn't crave a deep bold red.

13. and finally.....Coming Soon! STUDIO J -$Priceless...this is going to revolutionize the world of scrapbooking with a computer. I've been blessed to get to use it and it so totally ROCKS! Our software is going to be FREE, yes I said FREE and you'll be able to create layouts that will blend with your Classic layouts perfectly...so now you can have the best of both worlds and be able to scrap ALL of your pictures...yes 1,309, 001 pictures that you snapped while at Disney Land, LOL.

I hope this list helps you be able to determine some must haves for you collect and if you have a favorite, please leave a comment and let others know what you adore.
