Cricut Images

Check out this link for the images on the new CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge. It is located on the bookshelf. When you flip through the pages, you will see the images and the font available.  CTMH has designed stamped images to coordinate with the cut out images. The stamps will have instructions for the correct cut size so the stamp image will fit correctly onto the cut image. How cool is that?The Art Philosophy Kit will be available August 1.
PLUS....Starting in August, if you place an order $150 or more, you will qualify for Hostess Rewards and be eligible to receive ANY item in the Idea Book for 50% off. You will also be qualified to receive the Stamp of the Month, Wicked for FREE and you will receive a FREE A sized stamp set called Typeface Alphabet (retail $6.95)

And there's more....

Fanfare Cards

It's summer time and that mean Birthday time for me and my family. There are a lot of birthdays and birthday parties that the kids have been invited to over the last few weeks and in the upcoming months, I needed to get busy and start making some cards.

A fellow consultant (sorry forgot who it was because I would love to her the credit) posted cards using the Fanfare WOTG stamp set that were so cute and easy, I had to see if I could make them myself for last minute Birthday Cards.  They were so easy to make. I think a set of these would be a great gift for anyone.

Convention starts next week. I can't wait to see all the new products for fall.

Hope to see you all soon,

Summer Layout CASED

I was so inspired by this layout I saw from that I wanted to make one for myself. It uses the Mayberry Paper pack and Over the Rainbow stamp set.

I think this layout will be perfect for our vacation pictures. By the way, the BigRedScraps blog is a resource for card, layout, and papercrafting ideas using Close To My Heart products. Lots of talented consultants and customers share their creative artwork on this site. Go check it out if you have a chance.

This is the layout that will be featured during the July Workshops. It is the Mayberry Workshop On the Go. The Workshop kit comes with a Level 2 paper kit, an exclusive special stamp set, a workshop guide for the layout and cards, and an embellishment package to use for the layouts and cards. All for $29.95!

For my workshop, I will be offering the materials to make this 2 page layout for $7. Contact me if interested in coming to the Workshop or if you would like a kit yourself.

Thanks for looking,

Bang for Your Buck

Our July Constant Campaign, Bang for Your Buck, is sure to send your summer sales soaring! Simply put, when you make a minimum purchase of $50 from the Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book, you can add a bonus item for just $1. Choose from five items, each valued at $8.95 US or more (limit one bonus item per qualifying order). To qualify for this promotion, items purchased must be from the Spring/Summer Idea Book. Order early, before supplies run out!

Four Days for the 4th

Because of all the 4th of July Sales, I have decided to feature my own special:

Starting today to July 4th, purchase any D sized stamp retail $22.95 for $17.76 and/or FREE shipping for orders $50 or more before shipping and taxes. Contact me to place your order for my discounts.

The even better news about these specials is that your $50 purchase not only gets a select product for $1, but also earns you the Stamp of the Month for July for 50% off, or only $11.48! I absolutely LOVE the star in this set--works great for any birthday or celebration layout!

July is also the last month of the Spring/Summer catalog, which means that lots of products will be retiring at the end of this month. Make sure to stock up on your favorites to get them before they're gone! The following paper packs will be retiring,as well as all the matching accessories for all the paper packs from this catalog:


Make sure to order these and any accessories you like before the end of the month--there may be some surprise retiring products as well, so this is the month to scour the catalog and get everything you want in case it goes away.

I hope you can take advantage of all the Specials this month. The new Idea Book will be available August 1.

Stay tuned for more Specials from me this month.
