Close to my Heart has a new journal that is linen and can be easily decorated with the ribbon rosettes and the pearl swirls. I used our new pigment inks for the words so that they wouldn't fade.

I was asked to put on this blog the mini brag book that everyone can make using the new Artiste Cricut cartridge.  It's easy, just cut the shapes with the cartridge and glue them to the chipboard  and assemble your book. I uses waxy flax to put your book together and then tied silver dot ribbon bows. z1802  If you want to make more books you can order more z1791 Album pages.I used Avonlea paper z7155b.  Any questions just let me know.
