January 2006

Happy New Year!! Hope that this latest edition of my CM newsletter finds you well and that your holidays were happy and joyful!! I apologize for being tardy in sending this newsletter - a lot has happened since my September newsletter...namely, getting engaged! After the initial shock wore off, I created a 7x7 album of my engagement so my fiancè's family could share in the memories! They thoroughly enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it though probably not as well as much as I enjoyed getting proposed to!

We've introduced quite a few products since my last update, so without further ado, here they all are!

If you would like to place an order, please feel free to contact me by phone or email.

New Album Options

With foil-less album covers and the flexibility of album coversets in new colors, you now have more customization options than ever before! In addition to the Persona Imprinting option, coversets allow you to personalize your albums further by choosing pages that best match your photo theme or preference.

The first four colors in the updated album series are cobalt, ruby, forest and ebony - available in 4 sizes with beautiful, foil-free bookcloth colors. The sizes are 7 x 7, 8 1/2 x 11, 12 x 12 and 12 x 15 for complete albums and 7 x 7 and 12 x 12 for coversets.

The following albums are available while supplies last:

  • All 12 x 12 open-back albums
  • 12 x 12 Natural
  • 7 x 7 Promise

The following albums in all available sizes with the foil scroll border are available while supplies last (anticipated to be available through June 2006):

Black, Blush, Champagne, Cranberry, Evergreen, Mahogany, Navy, Plum, Sapphire, Tanzanite

Additional colors for the new coversets will be rolled out in the coming months (I'm anxious for the Sky album as I need to make a baby album for my nephew), so stay tuned!
