The new Summer Idea Book from Close To My Heart was released on May 1 and there are some really fun new stamp sets along with four new My Reflections scrapbook paper kits. Each of the four is also available as a Workshop-on-the-Go (WOTG) package that can be used to create scrapbook pages and cards - and each one contains an exclusive stamp set that is only available with purchase of the kit. There are four new WOTG kits included with each Idea Book. These kits are available ONLY during the 4-month cycle of the Summer Idea Book which is May, June, July, and August.
Each kit contains a complete paper packet, an exclusive stamp set, a Workshop Guide, and a coordinating embellishment. Each item in the WOTG - except the exclusive stamp set and the Workshop Guide - can be purchased separately. However, if you purchase the basic kit for $29.95, you will be saving between 10% and 15% off the retail value. The Workshop Guide is a full-color 6-page brochure which has complete cutting and assembly instructions for 2 scrapbook pages and 6 cards (2 each of 3 designs). Also included are pictures of 2 additional scrapbook pages and 3 additional cards. More information about the additional projects is available in the Workshops On The Go section of MyCTMH website.
A very charming kit is Cherry-O. It includes cheerful images and the Bowl of Cherries stamp set has stamps for cherries, stems, leaves, and bowls. The three card designs for this WOTG are shown above.
Zippidee includes a fun color combo that can be used for more 'boyish' items. The Ticket to Ride stamp set has some great images to use with vacation photos, or to create masculine cards.
This Passages kit and Lifetime stamp set have a very 'vintage' feel. The papers are just beautiful and would make wonderful scrapbook pages for a European vacation.
The Splendor kit comes with the whimsical Summer Wishes stamp set which will brighten up any project.
You can think of the WOTG kits as a "project in a bag" since the papers, stamp sets, embellishments, and instructions are all included - the only extras you need are adhesive, inks, and blocks to use the stamps. Chances are you already have these extras at home just waiting for a new project to work on! Contact me to order your WOTG project - or order through the MyCTMH website. All of the papers available in each kit can be viewed on the website.
