The "My Reflections" and "Originals" are already sold out. Get the others while you can! 
I have 2 of these wonderful idea books. Going to be getting a few more while I can. So sad to see these wonderful tools be discontinued. Until later.

1st CTMH Card

Here's my first Close To My Heart card I've made.


  • CTMH cardstock: Cocoa & Colonial White
  • CTMH Dimensional Elements Hearts & stamped on it with CTHM Lagoon Ink
  • American Crafts Ruban Ribbon - white and which I sprayed blue with my own Glimmer Mist that I made earlier in the evening
  • Black Ink for the Hi! & inside card sentiment
Card shape is cut from the CTMH Art Philosophy
Size is 4.5" scallop card & 4.25" for scallop layour

Homemade Glimmer Mist

My try at making home made Glimmer Mist, which I love! I used folkart Metallic Blue Sapphire acrylic paint & Forever Blue Perfect Pearls mixed with more than half bottle of water in a small spray bottle (purchased at Wal-Mart) and two pea-sized fishing weights (these are for helping mixing).

Sorry if pictures are not the best.
