Close to My Heart's brand new Cricut Collection, Artfully Sent, is now available!!! To order, visit my website at http://christina.ctmh.com.
Once again, I'm holding a Mega Party with an opportunity for you to get $35 in free products along with your Cricut Collection. Here's how it works: each participant orders the $99 Artfully Sent Cricut Collection. I'll put the orders together on one party order and then split the Hostess Rewards up between all the participants. Each participant is guaranteed to get $20 in free products of their choice. In addition to your $20 in free products, I will give each participant a free paper pack as a thank you from me ($9.95 value--you can choose from any of our nine new packs)! But wait, there's more!! I'll also put all participants' names in a drawing to get the half-price Hostess Rewards from the party. If I draw your name, you can pick any single item from the catalog (including Cricut Collections) for half price. Those whose names are not drawn for a half price item get another gift from me--a free Stamp of the Month or an ink pad in the color of their choice. That's a guarantee of $35 in free products just for ordering the $99 Artfully Sent Cricut Collection!
Orders must be submitted by September 19th to participate in the Mega Party. You can order your cartridge online right now on my website, http://christina.ctmh.com . Be sure that you click to "join" the September Mega Party. The cartridge will be sent directly to you immediately. Then, I'll close out the order and order everyone's Hostess Rewards after the 19th.

My next card workshop is the Pathfinder Card Kit Workshop coming up on Tuesday, September 30th at 6 p.m. Cost for the class is $29 (the cost of the kit plus tax/shipping). These card kits are a fantastic value. Not only do you get a beautiful, full-size stamp set, but you also get a full roll of Bronze Shimmer Trim and a full package of Gold Sequins, along with all the Pathfinder paper, card bases and envelopes--enough for 15 cards. You also get a color instruction guide for cutting your paper and assembling the cards.
If you can't attend the workshop, you can purchase the Pathfinder Card Kit and assemble at home. Recommended ink colors: Chocolate, Desert Sand, Glacier and Goldrush. You can order your Pathfinder Kit today on my website, http://christina.ctmh.com (it's listed under Workshop on the Go Kits).

We have ALL new papers and stamps to play with, and that means it is time for another card marathon class! Here are the cards we will be making on September 8th or 9th. If you have not yet signed up for the workshop, it's not too late! We'll make 20 cards in one night (four each of the five designs shown below). The stamping is fairly simple for these cards, so the class is appropriate for beginner stampers!
|I'm always happy when we introduce some new stamp sets that work for masculine cards. This paper for this card comes from the Seaside paper pack, and the stamp set is D1609 Seaside Greetings.|
|This card features the Confetti Wishes paper pack--fun, bright paper that just makes you smile! The stamp set is D1618 Build-a-Cake (I used it to build a present). Ink colors are Lagoon, Pacifica, Canary and Thistle.|
|This card was inspired by a design I saw on Pinterest. I knew it would work great with our new Brushed paper pack. Again, you could add any sentiment stamp to this card to make it work for a variety of occasions.|
It's a new month, and that brings wonderful new specials from Close to My Heart! September is National Stamping Month, and we always celebrate it with a fun, exclusive stamp set. During the month of September, when you purchase $30 in STAMPS from Close to My Heart, you will receive this 30-image stamp set absolutely FREE! That's an incredible value, and I know you'll love creating projects with all of these fun images.
We have a beautiful stamp set for our September Stamp of the Month. These images would be fabulous for some family scrapbook pages, but I've also seem some beautiful cards made with it. I'll be sure to post some additional artwork with this stamp set in the next couple of weeks. You can purchase this stamp set for only $5 with a $50 additional purchase, or you can purchase it for the regular retail price of $17.95. Or, better yet, combine it with our awesome National Stamping Month campaign and get two great deals!
