Bestill my heart with Base & Bling

Base & Bling Oval Additions
We’ve added more zing to the bling.

You love your wearable crafts already, but did you know the beautiful Base & Bling line has expanded? We’ve added ovals and rectangles to the collection to really get your style in shape. For looks that speak to who you are, try gracing your creations with circle, square, oval, or rectangle pendants. Additionally, you might try your wrist with a brand new cuff available exclusively in the same attractive oval shape, in both faux antiqued silver and faux antiqued gold. The new style sheets and glass covers to fit the bases will top off all your projects with the perfect layer of protection and shimmer. Are you ready to supplement your sparkle? Do it today with the expanded Base & Bling collection.

Create your own style » 

Have a girls birthday party coming up?  How about a jewelry making activity?  Even tweens and teens will love this keepsake.  Order the pendants, chains, stickers, and charms (all items but the chains come in multiples).  To adhere the glass covers, use the CTMH Liquid Glass adhesive.  Simply squeeze a small amount in the center of the flat side of the glass cover after you have adhered your sticker design.  The glue will spread automatically as you push the glass cover on and hold it for 10 - 30 seconds for it to fully adhere.  

Tip 1: have some baby wipes handy to wipe any excess glue off of the sides for anyone that may have used too much glue.  But don't worry!  It dries clear. 

Tip 2: use ribbon instead of the chains to save money and let the girls express their personal style even more.

Tip 3:  not just for girls, tweens, and teens!  This would make a lovely Mother's Day, birthday, cheer up, just because, or hello gift as well.

November SUPER lucky deals and giveaways!

November Is Your Lucky Month With Lucky 5
November is your lucky month, thanks to the Lucky 5 campaign! This campaign celebrates the five-year anniversary of Studio J®, with $5 print layouts all month long. But that is just one of the ways that you can luck out this month—when you place Studio J® print orders during November, you have a chance to win freebies. It could be a free accessory added to every fifth print order or one of five golden tickets redeemable for one of our brand new My Legacy™ D-ring albums, loaded with 10 top-load Memory Protectors™! In fact, the first golden ticket is already on its way to the first lucky winner—who will get the next one?

You could also win a new album loaded with Memory Protectors by creating beautiful layouts in Studio J and sharing the JPEG image—which comes free with every print order, or is available for separate purchase—on the Close To My Heart Facebook page, or on Instagram using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5. At the end of the month, we’ll review all the entries and choose five winners based on artistry and creativity.

Selected My Legacy™ Albums Now Available
We have now made the first of our new My Legacy™ album offerings available to order! The new albums you can start ordering are the Lagoon Chevron D-ring album (Z2090), the Black D-ring album (Z3034), and the new Black post-bound album (Z2094). The price for these albums is $34.95 USD/$38.50 CAD. 

You will love the new and improved quality of these albums from the moment you get your hands on one. The posts in our post-bound offerings have been made easier to use, which will increase the convenience of your memory-keeping. On our D-ring albums, we have strengthened the rings to keep your memories secure for a long time. The covers are built using a sturdy rigid material, and the exteriors are covered with coated canvas. Because canvas is a natural fiber, you may occasionally get an album with small flecks of color in the design. Such flecks are not a defect, but just part of working with natural fibers.

As for the remaining styles of albums and our organizational totes, we still expect them to be available later this month. We are happy to be able to make some albums available and will continue to keep you updated on the progress of these other items.
