The book is available for viewing at my Online Business Address (OBA) at http://brendalapp.closetomyheart.com/ under Products > Idea Books.

If you ever fall in love with a project that is shown in the Idea Book and want to recreate it, CTMH publishes a PDF of "Recipes" (clicking the link will open a PDF in a new tab) that lists the products used to create that item. Recipes can be found on my OBA under Products > Idea Book. If a Cricut® cut is used, the Cricut® Collection name will be listed as well as the cut size, if Real Dial Size is used and what page of the cartridge handbook the image appears on.

The retiring list has been posted. I posted a list of retiring stamp sets here on May 13 and  the other items that are retiring on May 17. Since I love visuals, I also pinned all of the items to my Pinterest Board CTMH Retiring Products. If I learn of other retiring items, colors for example, I will post them as soon as possible.

Via posts from Convention I have heard that Colonial White and the Basics Color Palette are retiring. The Basics Palette includes the following colors:
  • Slate
  • Whisper
  • Cocoa
  • Chocolate
  • Saddle
  • Cashmere
  • Champagne
  • Desert Sand
  • Bamboo
In addition to stamp pads, re-inkers and cardstock, the Basics Cardstock Combo Pack (X5933) and Basics Exclusive Inks™ Mini Pigment Pads Set (Z2503) will also be retiring.



When viewing products in the Idea Books, look for these icons before the stamp set name:


CTMH has My Acrylix™ Stamp Sets that coordinate with the CTMH/Cricut® Collections, with Thin Cuts and stamps that come in Spanish and French versions. Stamps that come in French or Spanish are also identified by having an F or an S appended to the item number.

If the stamp set is Cricut® compatible, the name of the coordinating cartridge is below the stamp set name to the right of the recommended blocks. Also look for a red outline around the stamp image. When you are browsing the Cricut® collections on my OBA, the Cricut® Compatible Stamp Sets are also displayed with their coordinating Cricut® collection.

When a stamp set coordinates with a Thin Cut, the name of the Thin Cut is below the stamp set name to the right of the recommended blocks. Also look for a blue outline around the stamp image.

Information current as of  July 29, 2017.
