Why it's called the Close To My Heart IDEA BOOK & Catalog

I love creating scrapbook pages, cards and other paper crafts. I'm not especially creative so I rely heavily upon scrapbook & card magazines, craft blogs & websites and my go-to favorite is the Close To My Heart Idea Book & Catalog. I save all past issues!! They are filled with so much artwork, techniques and tips.

If you don't have the current Autumn/Winter 2010 issue visit my website here to see what inspired my latest creation on page 69. I saw this box on display at the CTMH Annual Convention in Washington DC in July and I've been wanting to create it ever since.

The Halloween card I posted yesterday was also inspired from the Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book & Catalog - page 96. I used several pieces of scrap cardstock and B&T paper and I was really pleased with the result.

I will be posting a series of INSPIRATIONS on my blog. What inspires you?
