Base & Bling

When you hear of Close To My Heart’s products most people’s minds automatically go to paper crafting products, but with the current Fall/Winter 2013 Idea Book CTMH has really branched out to new products.

Including a Base & Bling Jewelry line!! They offer a necklace kit and also individual pieces such as bracelets, rings, headbands, hair clips, and necklaces!  The jewels and accents for this line come in a large variety of colors and are very versatile. They can be used on all papercrafting projects including cards, scrapbook pages and the NEW Crush Albums.

 This is a sample of a card using a floral accent in the Base & Bling line.

The flower on this card is from the Base & Bling Floral Accents collection {while supplies last}. I just added white acrylic paint to alter the color to match the theme of my card. This card also got a “shout out” on the Retro Sketches Challenge Blog!! I was so excited!!! Totally made my day! Check it out here!!

I also recently purchased the Base & Bling Fabric Necklace Kit* {while supplies last}, and here is the finished product.
