NEW SPECIAL, "Here's to You!"

As if one deal wasn't enough, we now have a wonderful new special that runs from July 15-August 31st.  Close to My Heart has created four gorgeous sentiment stamps that will work for a variety of occasions--weddings, celebrations, etc.  You can purchase any of the four sentiments for $9.95 each OR you can purchase a kit for $48.95 ($42.95 if you don't need the Rose Embossing Folder that's in the kit).  The kit contains all four sentiments, plus supplies to make some lovely projects.   

You can also print off the directions to make these projects--or use the kit ingredients anyway you please!  There's even a Design Space file that you can download to your Cricut to create some of the shapes on the card!  Click on the link below to see these projects in more detail.  They are so pretty!  Also, if you hop on over to my Facebook page, you can view a video that really shows you the cards close up.  

To order, visit my website at . . .and don't forget that stamp sets are still Buy 2, Get 1 FREE through the end of July!

It's been nearly a year since I posted anything on blog.  I'm embarrassed.  Shamed.  So terribly sorry!!  To be honest, it was a combination of reasons:  1) Sharing more of my business ideas on Facebook; 2) Strapped for time. . .and Facebook won out over blog; 3) Last time I tried to post, I couldn't access my blog page (now fixed. . .I'm sure it was ME)!!!

So, let's catch up!

I just came back from Close to My Heart Convention.  Convention is this wonderful experience where CTMH Consultants can come together for a few days, learn all about new products and find out what incredible things are coming your way!  And, boy, do we have some exciting things coming your way!

We currently have two current catalogs in circulation:  the Annual Inspirations catalog (the white and gold cover shown below), which will run through August 2018 and the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog, which runs from May to August.  A good chunk of the products in the Annual Inspirations catalog are set to retire soon, so you need to get them before they are GONE!   If you'd like to browse either of these catalogs, go to my website

Beginning in September, we will be moving to a TRI-ANNUAL catalog, and I am so very happy about this change!  That means that we will have a nice big FULL catalog that comes out three times of year.  You won't need to look in two different books to find what you need--everything will be right there!  Stay tuned for exciting info about the release of our tri-annual book in September. 

Right now, we're in the month of July, and that means STAMPAGANZA--buy two stamp sets, get one FREE!  Yes, FREE!!  It's a great time to stock up on stamp sets!  And, to celebrate this wonderful special, Close to My Heart has brought back our Alphabet and Number Solos.  They even have some incredible deals on bundles with ALL of the Alphabet and Number Solos.   You can check this special out on my website,

ALL of the current stamp sets in the Annual Inspirations and Seasonal Expressions books will be retiring at the end of August, so be sure to grab the ones you want before they are gone.  Also, we will see a slight price increase in stamp sets beginning in September (first price hike we've had on stamps on YEARS), so that makes this an even better time to stock up.

We also have a super cute Stamp of the Month for July.  So, if you happen to be taking advantage of the awesome deal on stamp sets, you can also get this Stamp of the Month for only $5 with a $50 purchase!  Isn't it cute????  You can use the images on any project, but this one is particularly good for scrapbooking.  

I'm happy to be back. . .sorry it took me so long!  If you like to see more frequent, timely posts from me (like info on Flash Sales and workshops), I still recommend checking out my Facebook page.  But, I hope to make a better effort to keep my blog updated with info on specials, artwork, etc.
