Holiday Wishes with Close To My Heart

Happy Thanksgiving!!

To help you get in the Christmas spirit Close To My Heart's campaign for the rest of November is when you place a minimum order of $25 in My Acrylix® stamp sets in November, you can purchase a new D-size Holiday Wishes stamp set for only $5! That’s significant savings off the full retail value of $17.95. And here’s a bonus: many of the images in the set coordinate with our Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge for added cutting and stamping fun!

You can also get Novermber's Stamp of the Month for only $5 when you spend $50.

I will be getting a new website soon! In the meantime you can still visit my old one.

Just a few things

As I mentioned in a previous post I am going to be doing a mini-vendor fair in 2 weeks.  Here are a few things that I have created over the past week.

October Stamp of the Month

October's Stamp of the month is so stinkin' cute!  I can't wait to get it!

Spend $50 and you can purchase this set for only $5!

Finally...some artwork

I am doing a craft/vendor fair next month so I am gearing up for that.  Here are a few cards I have completed.  Some of them I noticed I didn't finished.  For the most part I think they turned out pretty cute.  I used the CTMH Art Philosphy cricut cartridge on several of them.  I am also trying to use up my stash (Yes, Melissa R, you read that right), so these papers I used were retired.  They are Jingle and Mistletoe.

CTMH Cricut Art Philosphy how I love thee

I am addicted, and I don't mind telling you.  If you have a Cricut machine you have to consider purchasing CTMH's Art Philosphy.  It is AMAZING!  It has 700 images.  Yes, 700 images.  You are lucky to get 100 images with most regular cartridges!  So, for $99 you get the cartridge with 700 images, 3 stamp sets and 3 dimensional elements that compliment the cartridge. It is an amazing deal. Here are just a few of the images you can make:

Love it!!  Click Art Philosphy to get yours today!

ROXI Workshop!!

Now is the time to sign up for the workshop this month.  This month we are doing ROXI.  It is going to be on August 28th.  The workshop must be paid for by this Sunday to make sure everything comes in on time.   I just made mine yesterday and am totally in love with this paper pack!  Join us!

Stamping 101

I am having a Stamping 101 class at my house tomorrow (Saturday) at 1PM.  Please let me know if you would like to come!  It is a FREE class!

Contact me for more details!

It's officially HERE!

The 2011 Autumn/Winter catty is FINALLY available! 

Do you want one?  I know you do!  Contact me for details on how to get one.  I really think this may be the best one yet!

Oh my goodness are you going to be so surprised to see all the changes!!!  The first things that jumped out at me were the following:
For me, the best one is CHEAPER stamp prices!!
 Size A-6.95
  Size B-9.95
  Size C-13.95
  Size D-17.95
  Size E-29.95

I am loving it!  

2nd awesome thing is our very own CRICUT cartridge called Art Philosphy.  It is a great package.  You get 3 (yes, that is THREE) stamp sets and 3 dimensional elements to go with it.  Now, in our catalog when you see a red outline on a stamp set that means there is a cricut image that corresponds with the image.  How awesome is that?!!!

3rd--The Stamp of the Month program has changed.  I love the new change!  Now, you only have to spend $50 and you will be able to purchase it for only $5

4th--Our level 2 paper packs are now only 9.95!  Not only that, but our b&t paper is cardstock weight.


5th--New Glitz glitter gel colors.  Be still my beating heart.  haha!  If you know me, you know I love my Glitz! 

Over the next few days I plan on hilighting some of our new products.     

That is a quick break down of some of our new products.  I hope you are as excited as I am!

Just a few more days...

I am so excited about the new catty coming out in less than a week!  I can't wait til I can share with you all the awesome new products that grace the pages of the Fall/Winter 2011 Idea Book.  In the meantime I have a gathering tomorrow and am using up some of my paper packs from the Spring/summer catty.  We will be using Fanfare for the Make n' Take and I used Sophia for the door prize, hostess gift, and game prize.

The Blog World/Retiring CTMH products
