Happy National Scrapbooking Month, friends! We kicked off our celebration last weekend with an incredible virtual crafting event! If you missed out on any of these awesome projects, and would still like to participate, the instructional videos are available under the past Events tab on the Close To My Heart (Official) Facebook page.
For the rest of the month, we’re keeping the party going with the gorgeous Hope & Kindness collection! This beautiful suite is designed with concepts of inspiration, self-affirmation, beauty, and growth at its core, and encourages you to find the best qualities in yourself and the people closest to you. We can’t wait to show it off, and today, we’re going to take you on a behind the scenes tour of all this wonderful collection has to offer!
At the heart of the suite is the exclusive paper packet, which features three full sheets of cut-apart sentiments, pattern sections, and icons. Not only do these patterned papers make crafting a joy, but the inspirational quotes included in the papers help to remind us to look for the best and have patience with ourselves as we continue to grow.
These papers are accompanied by a selection of coordinating stickers and kraft paper die-cuts that complement the paper packet perfectly and make the ideal finishing touches to treasured scrapbook pages and heartfelt cards.
Another stand-out feature of this collection is the coordinating cardstock pack. This cardstock pack includes 12 sheets with printed texture patterns on one side of each page, allowing for variation not only in the colors used but in textures as well!
Rounding out the Hope & Kindness product suite is the Hope & Kindness stamp set, Thin Cuts metal dies, and the Fancy Doilies Thin Cuts dies. These elements are coordinated perfectly with the papers, stickers, and die-cuts, but can also be used in other projects for years to come!
Along with the amazing new products available through the Hope & Kindness special, we’ve also designed three incredible workshop kits so crafters of all types can enjoy working with Hope & Kindness!
For our memory keepers, we’ve got a beautiful scrapbooking workshop kit, which includes all the exclusive papers you’ll need to create six coordinating 12″ x 12″ two-page layouts! Just imagine how spectacular your favorite photos will look incorporated into these pages!
Cardmakers can look forward to loads of crafting fun with the Hope & Kindness Cardmaking Workshop Kit! This kit includes materials to create 16 standard size cards (2 each of 8 designs).
With so many fun designs to choose from, you can easily create cards that are great for all types of occasions—birthdays, sympathy, expressions of thanks, or just because!
Last but not least, we’re thrilled to show off our Hope & Kindness Album Workshop Kit, which allows crafters to create an entire 6″ x 8″ mini album in one sitting! Many of the pages in this album incorporate Flip Flaps™ to accommodate even more photos and adds a fun, interactive element!
With so much fun in store with Hope & Kindness, it’s going to be an unforgettable National Scrapbooking Month! We can’t wait to celebrate all month long with this amazing collection and we’re looking forward to seeing all the awesome artwork you’ll create!
