National Stamping Month

Welcome to September and National Stamping Month! I am so excited to share with you the special for this month from Close To My Heart, Share the Seasons. This special includes two exclusive stamp sets - Dash of Joy and Giving Thanks - and one exclusive Share the Seasons Thin Cuts Bundle, which includes a multi-square Thin Cut and a binder clip label Thin Cut. These stamp sets and Thin Cuts have been designed just for this special and are only available for purchase as part of Share the Seasons.

 I had fun creating these cards with this special. I love the versatility of the stamps and Thin Cuts within this set.

Close To My Heart is offering a 30% discount on the stamp sets and Thin Cuts when you purchase them together in a bundle. You can also purchase the stamp sets together without the Thin Cuts for a discount of 20% off, or you can purchase either stamp set alone for full price. The Thin Cuts are also available for individual purchase at full price.

Welcome to September!

I cannot believe we are already in the month of September! The summer went by in a flash! I am just getting back into the swing of things after seeing both girls off to college. Meghan has begun her senior year at Champlain College and Nicole has started her freshman year at Emmanuel College. It definitely feels weird now being part of the empty nest club.

I have so much to share with you from Close To My Heart this month! We have the launch of 2 new catalogs, new colors, a new featured paper collection, and a new stamp of the month.

Close To My Heart Core Catalog

Close To My Heart September/October Idea Book
With the new Core Catalog comes the introduction of 7 new colors to our color line. Six of these colors are part of the core line and the seventh is the new color of the year - Julep. 

The Featured Paper Collection for the month of September is Every Little Thing. I am in love with the cool colors and sketched designs in this collection. I had a lot of fun creating this layout with the collection.

With the new catalog Close To My Heart has changed how they package their paper collections. You can now choose between two paper packet options, one including a 12" x 12" sticker sheet, and one without. Both packs include 6 sheets of double-sided patterned paper, two of each of the designs included. The coordinating paper packs, embellishments and Picture My Life Cards all still beautifully coordinate with the featured paper.

The Scrapbooking and Card Making Workshop Kits have been revamped with the new catalog as well. The Scrapbooking Workshop Kit includes everything you need to create two 12" x 12" single pages and two 12" x 12" two-page layouts. The workshop kit also includes exclusive die-cuts and acrylic shapes not available outside of the kit. All of this at a discounted price!

The Card Making Workshop kit contains an exclusive stamp set with coordinating Thin Cuts and the materials to create 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs. This kit is also at a discounted price!

The Stamp of the Month for September is the Random Act of Kindness stamp set. This set of 17 images is perfect for sending cards to brighten the day of those we care about.

This set is available for $18.95 or for $5.00 with a $50 purchase from my website during the month of September. Click here to see this stamp set.

Hope you enjoy all of the new products Close To My Heart has available starting this month!
