The July-September 2022 CTMH Summer Products Catalog is now LIVE and I’m super excited to share with you my Top 5 favorite MUST-HAVE items of the season! So if you’re ready, let’s do it in countdown style starting with…
5. #X9042 Mix-in Paper Pack
Just look at the beautiful colors and textures of these papers! I definitely think Close To My Heart got these Papers right and I can’t wait to start playing with these!
I particularly love the Toffee Paper (top row middle) because the side with out the Zip Strip showing would be great for beach layouts. It reminds me so much of sand… or even dirt. What a great pattern to have in my arsenal.
The other paper I particularly like is the Shortbread Paper (bottom row middle). I’m a sucker for yellow paper, particularly yellow tones that aren’t bright. I also like the tiny tone on tone pattern and I know that this will be a great paper to play with as well.
You can purchase this X9042 Mix-in Paper HERE.
4. #Z8037 On the Farm Stamp + Thin Cuts
I fell in love with this adorable set as soon as I laid eyes on it! While I’m not 100% sure what I will use it for since I don’t get out to the farm (like ever!), I just love the design of it so much! …and that little sheep in the set, though! Be still my heart! <3
I love how the cow was used in the card to the right. Such a simple card but yet it’s so vibrant and fun! And if you look super close you can see that the papers used are the Mix-in Papers I featured above. So cool!
3. #Z8036 Simple Leaves Stamp + Thin Cuts
Let me first start off by saying that while leaves aren’t exactly a Summer thing it IS displayed in the Summer Catalog so I’m going to go ahead and count it as one of my top 5 ‘Summer’ products. 😉
I love love love this set of leaves so much! And, because it’s a Stamp Set that also has Thin Cuts, I love it even more!
When I’m deep into working on a card or a layout it’s never fun to take the time to fussy cut. I want to be able to cut it quick and stamp it fast so I can decide the placement and getter-done! …Bring on the early Autumn Layouts which are always my favorite to create.
2. #D2112 Autumn Vibes Stamp Set
Another fun Autumn Set that is a must-have from the Summer book is this adorable Autumn Vibes Stamp Set. The season is fun, the font is playful and the Coffee Cup had me hello! Yep, I’m also a sucker for coffee cups in any shapes or sizes… you should see my cupboards! lol
But seriously though, this set is so perfect for mid September to mid October photos and storytelling here in the Pacific Northwest. It’s a time of sunshine with cozy sweaters, changing leaves and beautiful sunsets.
I’m excited to use this set and can’t wait to show you what I come up with!

1. #G1258 Beach Party Cardmaking Workshop Kit!
Isn’t this the most adorable set of cards? So vibrant and fun! As soon as I saw this adorable set I knew I wanted to create these.
