DYK: No Stamp Scrapbooking

I’m starting a new series of posts titled “DYK” or “Did you know?”  While I’ve been posting artwork and specials about Close to My Heart products, I’d love to tell you more about the whole idea of Close to My Heart. 

Today’s post is about scrapbooking.  Did you know that our scrapbooking products  are fabulous and don’t require stamping?  Yes, we’re a company that evolved from the stamping world, but you don’t have to apply ink to our paper to have fabulous scrapbook layouts!

Take a look at the Later Sk8r collection as our example: 

This layout is featured on pg 46 of the current Idea Book.  It’s created with just the paper pack and the My Stickease.  No stamping!


Our paper packs consist of 6 beautiful sheets of double sided pattern paper, two of each sheets. 

Along with that, you get 6 coordinating cardstock. And we’re not talking white or cream. We’re talking about the vibrant colors that make our pattern papers beautiful. For Later Sk8r, you’ll receive the following cardstock sheets: 2 Outdoor Denim, 2 Slate, 1 Pear, 1 Whisper .

You may need to pick up a package of Colonial White or White Daisy cardstock, but you’ll be using our white paper in nearly every layout anyway. However, to make great layouts, you won’t need to purchase a whole 24-sheet package of Outdoor Denim to make a great layout. It’s included in the paper pack!

Secondly, we always have two sets of embellishments that are designed to go with a specific paper pack.  We’ll have either My Stickease ® assortments which are high quality cardstock “stickers” or complements made of canvas, chipboard, or foil.  They’re listed right with the paper packs and their item number is nearly the same as the paper pack but ends with a “C.”  These embellishments are almost always flat.  They make great embellishments without adding much bulk.    On the back of the My Stickease sheets there’s layout suggestions too!

Additionally we have an embellishment assortment.  They’re a little more dimensional and take your project up a notch.  For Later Sk8r they’re 7 adhesive-backed rubber shapes.  In other collections they can be acrylic flowers, ribbon rosettes, crocheted items, fabric covered buttons, quilted fabric flowers, and more!  See pages 117 and 118 of the current Idea Book to see them all!


Need a title?  No worries!  Our My Stickease products always contain an element that would make a great title or two. 


Need a custom title?  We have a wide variety of self adhesive letter stickers to choose from. 

We have small, large, cork, canvas, chipboard, kraft and glitter!



See there?  There’s no need to pull out the stamps!


See you soon with the next installment of DYK.  To see all of these posts together, you can click on the “Did you know?” label in the right sidebar of this blog.
