I have to confess that I have a guilty habit (pleasure) of buying magazines - any kind - gossip rags, beauty and fashion mags, home decorating, fitness and of course - scrapbooking ones! In fact, just before I went on holidays, I picked up the current copy of Scrapbooks etc - one of my perennial faves! I like it so much I even subscribe to it!!! So that means I now have 2 copies!!

So if you want one of these, just leave a comment here by September 1st telling me what you like about the new catty and its yours!!!!

New Ida Book For CTMH Fall/Winter 2011 Is Here!!!

And the Cricut cartridge and coordinating chipboard and stamps are better than I ever dreamed!!!

So some of the highlites include cardstock-weight patterend paper, smaller more affordable paper packs, lower pricing to qualify for the SOTM (but no free option for the SOTM), cardstock 'shade' packs (but that means that we lost the single color pack cardstock except for a couple in each 'family'), rub on's, felt and canvas shapes instead of sticker packs with some of the paper packs.

One downside is (in my opinion) is that CTMH took away the 'color code' at the top of each page. I found that very helpful when I was trying to 'scraplift' a project or layout. Now it is a bit of a guessing game or I have to log into the consultant site and look it up in a recipe file that we have.

So all in all I am very excited about this catalogue - can't wait to share it with you! There is a great special on for August 15th to September 30th - stay tuned!!!
