Crafting Celebrities: My Crush® Books on Studio 5!

The My Crush® For Her and For Him books had their spot in the limelight today when Close To My Heart Chief Communications Officer Monica Wihongi brought them in to show the folks on the KSL Studio 5 show. While they were filming the segment, our Creative Communications Manager Jill Broadbent snapped a few behind-the-scenes shots of Monica on set! Doesn’t she look like a natural? Some people are just made for the lights. 🙂

As Monica mentioned in the show, we’re offering a special My Crush® bundle giveaway in this post! Scroll down to the bottom to get more details on what’s inside and how to enter.

For those of you living outside of Utah (and for those in Utah who just missed the show), watch the full segment below.

Watched the show and still left craving to know more? For intense crafting scholars like you, we’ve provided a breakdown analysis of a few highlights from each of the books below.

My Crush® For Her Book

Start Here

Who wouldn’t want to open a book with this masterpiece on the cover? There is definitely something magical about a beginning as beautiful as this one.

All the Extras

Gold Shimmer Trim and Coral Reef sequins are your best friends when it comes to dressing things up. All you’ve got to do is peel and stick, and they’ll take care of the sparkling and dazzling. And can we just say how much we love these vellum overlays? Drop. Dead. Gorgeous.

Breathing Room
 1504-summer-crush-her-10 copy

There’s room for your creativity to exhale on the open, designed pages that are perfect for adding your own journaling blocks, photos, or anything else your heart desires.

Goodbye, Writer’s Block


The journaling prompts scattered throughout the book help you document new insights into your relationships and share the things you might not have found a way to say otherwise.


Designed quotes make lovely companions to your treasured photos. They add drama, sentiment, feeling, power, and beauty—the whole shebang.

 My Crush® For Him Book

 To Boldly Go


We will gladly follow these bold, authentic shapes to the end of this book and back again.

Be Brave

Add a touch of bold dimension and color using the Brave enamel shapes! They’re self-adhesive, handsome, and prepared to fight the battle of visual appeal until the end of time.

Outdoors Inside

What better way to say how you feel than with backgrounds of majestic pictures of the wilderness? Words take on new meaning when they’ve got nature on their side.

Say What You Need to Say
Know how you feel but can’t find the words? Don’t worry—this book has got you covered. Just like the For Her book, the creative journaling prompts inside will help you find the words you know you want to say but just aren’t quite sure how to say.
