Over the next few weeks, I look forward to giving to tid-bits and sneak peeks at the new products that will be available in Close to my Heart's new 2010 Autumn/Winter Idea book. It will be available to you and for ordering September 1st. However, I was priviledged to get some new product early to create and play around with to share with other consulants at convention. It was just too much fun!!
Let me tell you words cannot describe how excited I was to learn I was going to be teaching about our new mini-album - the Mix & Mingle Album at Close to my Heart's annual Convention! I had so much fun coming up with some 'unique' and 'creative' ways to use this the very versatile product!
The first little peek I am going to share with you is the darling 'pocket calendar' I created with this mini-album. I immediately knew the 8 page (5 chipboard and 3 acrylic) album would create a great calendar with cute little pockets which could hold a little card to list reoccuring dates I needed to remember...that I could pop in my purse. However, I am a girl who LOVES my embellishments...so by the time I finished my creation process it was pretty clear this not-so-little guy will now be sitting on my desk. :)
