JUNE 2017 Classes & Specials



Hello Fellow Stampers~

Only a week left to take advantage of the 'Live Beautifully' exclusive products available only during the month of May for National Scrapbooking Month, while supplies last.  This floral paper pack contains 16 sheets of paper: 2 each of 6 double sided designs and 2 each of 2 different single-sided gold foil designs...all for just $14.95!  The coordinating D-size stamp set contains sentiments, titles and floral images for only $17.95!

Close To My Heart is also offering a 'Live Beautifully' Cut Above Layout Kit - this kit contains everything you need to make FIVE 2-page layouts!  For only $44.95, this kit is basically ready to assemble, with pre-cut papers, stickers, gold foil accents and 6 Memory Protectors...all you need is adhesive, 3D foam tape and a journaling pen.  You won't even need a paper trimmer to complete these amazing pages!  These layouts are so simple to put together, I have all the confidence in the world you can do them on your own, so I'm not hosting a workshop for these pages...but I'm here to assist you if necessary.
  
I'm hosting several workshops in June using this paper and stamp set, however products need to be ordered in May, products will not be available to order in June.  Continue reading to find out more information!

Also, Going Soon (retiring) products are listed on my website - be sure to check them out (the list is long!), and order early to guarantee you get products still on your wish list.  View the GOING SOON products online here.  These products must be ordered from my website, but can be added to your online order to save on shipping.

I will be attending my 18th Annual CTMH Convention in Salt Lake City during the week of June 26th, 2017.  A reminder, the current Annual Inspiration catalog will run through July 2017 (all products while supplies last), with a NEW Annual Inspiration catalog going LIVE on August 1st!  Watch for upcoming Catalog Celebration date to be announced soon!

Feel free to share this blog post with your friends who LOVE to stamp, scrapbook and paper-craft.  I always appreciate your referrals...and I love to reward YOU too!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued friendship and support...I truly appreciate YOU!

APRIL 2017 Classes & Specials


Hello Friends~

Happy Spring!  The days are getting longer, and the spring snow storms are bringing us the moisture we desperately need in Colorado.

Time is running out to take advantage of 25% off Thin-Cuts during the month of March.  To date, the Dreamin' Big thin cut bundle is SOLD OUT.  Others remain in stock - it's a great deal! Check them all out here.

Its hard to believe, we are coming to the end of the Seasonal Expressions 1(SE1).  April 2017 is the last month to make those purchases of products contained within the SE1 (the Annual Inspirations goes through July 2017).  Due to limitations in corporate inventory, I've had to change up the order I'm planning to do showcase the last two paper packs.  I'm planning to showcase "Some Kinda Wonderful" in April and "Hello Lovely" in May.

However, all orders will have to be placed in April for both Some Kinda Wonderful and Hello Lovely, since all products will retire on May 1st.  And...a reminder, all products are while supplies last.



In March, I debuted the Card Buffet workshops...I hope to continue these in the coming months.  Its an opportunity for you to make as many cards as you can in a 2 hour time frame.  Cards range from Happy Birthday, Sympathy, Thinking of You, and more.  Even with my "rules" they had to follow, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Here's just a sampling of some of the cards they could create.

Feel free to share this blog post with your friends who LOVE to stamp, scrapbook and paper-craft.  I always appreciate your referrals...and I love to reward YOU too! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued friendship and support...I truly appreciate YOU!

Helping you preserve the memories that matter most...
