Changes are coming!

 A TON of changes are occurring at Close to My Heart and here are a few that will be happening over then next few months.  

1.  Retiring Albums
  • Effective September 2010 - 9x9 and 6x6 albums will no longer be available.  Until then, and while supplies last they are available to order.
  • Effective September 2010 - the traditional 12x12 linen album will no longer be available.  They are being replaced with faux-leather.  We will have the new albums in 6 colors and they will actually be less expensive than the linen albums now!  Again, these are available now and will continue to be while supplies last.  If you've got a matching 'library' going on, you might want to stock up.
2.  Retiring Colors/New Colors
  • Effective September 2010 - the Summer color Pallete has been completely revamped.  The following colors are retiring:  Orange, Hydrangea, Star Spangled Blue, Clover Meadow, Bubblegum, Citrus Leaf, Ocean and Watermelon.
  • They have been replaced with new colors:  Gypsy, Pacifica, Sunset, Cotton Candy, Lagoon, Pear, Sky and Smoothie
  • If you love the old colors and already own the inks (or not), you might want to consider stocking up on the coordinating cardstock, reinkers, and/or markers.  Again, these are a 'while supplies last' item.
  • New Colors will not be available until September 1.
3.  A new How-To Book

  • If you've been waiting like I have for a new How-To book to add to your library - in September, you'll be happy.
  • The new book, called 'Magic' contains patterns by Jeanette Lynton for scrapbook layouts with an 'interactive' appeal.
4.  Idea Book Publication Schedule
  • Beginning in 2011, Close To My Heart is switching to a bi-annual publication schedule, rather than the 3-book launch we have currently.
  • The Autumn/Winter book will be published September 1, 2010 as expected, and will be valid until February 1, 2011.
5.  BIG Changes to Studio J

  • Have you been wanting to try Studio J, but were scared away by the expense?  Studio J membership might be exactly what you need!
  • Beginning September 2010 - scrapbooking with Studio J will become MUCH more affordable with offers of 12-month, 3-month and 5-pack 'memberships'.
  • More details of the Studio J membership plans will be announced as we get closer to the launch, but expect to see members-only perks like exclusive kits & patterns, free shipping, free page protectors & free jpeg archive files with varying membership levels.
  • I can't wait to give you ALL the details!
