Glitter Glam

Happy Friday!

So sorry I have been MIA this week.  It has been a bit busy in the McGrew Household.  The kids are on spring break next week and BOY! are we looking forward to a little less running around!

Today I am sharing with you a fun little video highlighting the Close To My Heart Shimmer Trim.  This product ROCKS!  It is oh so FUN and EASY and AFFORDABLE to make your projects pop! It is available in both Black and Silver.

In the above photos you will see a layout I created at the CTMH Album Retreat 2 weeks ago.  The cassette tape I created for the 
Music To My Ears" layout was created using the CTMH Cricut Cartridge.  Notice the Shimmer Trim at the bottom of the cassette.  Isn't that fun?
The Shimmer Trim retails for $4.96 plus shipping and tax.  
The black shimmer trim is item #Z1809 and the silver is #Z1799.
These are a definite must have for your product stash!

The Wheel of Life

Close To my Heart has a new stamp set that arrived in the 2013 Spring/Summer Idea Book.  It is called "Wheel of Life" (#D1545).  It is on page 77 of the Idea Book. "Wheel of Life" is SO, SO fun to create with!  Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the CTMH Album Retreat.  We used this stamp set on several of the layouts we created for our "All About Me" album.

Close To My Heart also introduced a new accessory:  the SPINNER (page 127 of the new Idea Book).  The spinner comes in a pack of 3.  They are stampable white chipboard spinners, arrows are removable for decorating.  They coordinate perfectly with the "Wheel of Life" stamp set.

Here is a fun and informative video showcasing the spinners!
