When I sit down to create, I need inspiration. Yep, I do. It’s tough to always be fabulously artsy, sometimes I like to get a little creative nudge from the Close to My Heart How-to Books.
These beautiful books are full of blueprints, paper dimensions and artwork inspiration for cards and scrapbooks. Sometimes I copy a layout pattern exactly from the book, other times I just browse through, looking for embellishment ideas or title inspiration. My collection is within easy reach of my scrapbooking table, I use them often.
Sadly, all good things must come to an end. Close to My Heart has retired every single one of the How-to Books and they are only available while supplies last. I’m so glad my collection is complete, as I will continue to use the ideas and patterns for years to come.
It’s not too late for you. Although Originals and Reflections are now sold out, there are still 4 how-to books still available.
For scrapbookers: Cherish, Imagine, Magic
For cardmakers: Wishes
Over 120 pages in a beautiful hard-bound book with spiral inside (so they lay flat!), filled with full color artwork and plenty of tips, techniques and ideas to spark your creative mojo!
Can’t decide which ones to get? My favorites are Magic for scrapbooking, and Wishes for Cards.
These books won’t be around much longer, so get them while you can!
