Thinking Outside the Book

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Are you a cardmaker, or do you like making papercrafted projects? Don’t overlook the CTMH My Crush line of products!

My Crush books are perfect for scrapbooking in a quick and fun way, with their preprinted pages and spiral bound format, you can save your memories, photos and collectibles with nothing more than adhesive and a pen!

I created a fun interactive scrapbook of a trip with my husband using the My Crush Wildwood book and accessories.

You can see more of the book here.

One of my favorite things about the My Crush book is the huge variety of patterned papers. Unlike a traditional paper pack with a few coordinating papers and solid colored cardstocks, the My Crush books have 60 pages with very few repeating patterns, and they are all designed to coordinate beautifully!

If you’re a cardmaker or papercrafter, you can ignore the cover and ring binding, it’s just a fancy wrapper for all those yummy heavy-weight patterned papers!

Tear out the papers, or pull the binding apart and remove the pages individually. Then get creative!


Since most cards and many papercrafting projects don’t need large 12x12 sheets of cardstock, the handy 7x10 size pages in the My Crush books is not a problem. Cut, layer, stamp and embellish with this amazing line of products!
