CTMH September Specials

Well I can't believe it, but summer is over and September is officially here. A couple of  good things about September are 1. The kiddos are back in school, and now we have more time to play with our favorite paper and stamps! And 2. September is National Stamping Month and Close to my Heart has a great campaign going on to celebrate!
Here is a flyer explaining the September National Stamping Month Campaign. But to sum it up just spend $50 and get the special set of stamps for only $10. You get 3 D size stamps for only $10. The 3 sets work really well with each other. One set contains images (my favorite is the hedgehog), another set contains cute sentiments, and the last set is an adorable alpha stamp set.
Here is a picture of the stamp sets themselves.

And as always Close to my Heart has a special stamp of the month. Spend $50 to get this stamp set for only $5, and yes the same $50 you spent to qualify for the National Stamping Month stamp set also qualifies you for the September Stamp of the Month. The stamp of the month this month is a cute set of fall and winter subway art titles that can be used for scrapbook layouts, cards, and more!
Here is a closer look of the September Stamp of the Month.

Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea book & catalog

The wait is finally over. The Close to my Heart Autumn/Winter idea book & catalog is officially available to all customers. The catalog has six new paper packs with coordinating stickease and embellishments and work shops on to go, 2 cardmaking work shops on go, new crush books and coordinating embellishments, even more home décor items, make your own jewelry,and a new Cricut Cartridge: Artbooking. There is so much to love about this new catalog!
We are currently booking home gatherings from mid August through mid December. If earning free and discounted products wasn't reason enough to host your own home gathering. Close to my Heart now offers exclusive stamp sets available only to hostesses. There are seven sets total, and they are all very cute. Here's an example of my favorite hostess set Wintery Wishes (c1560).
At a home gathering we will walk you and your guests through a free make n' take. Choose from one of the cute cards pictured below. We welcome all kinds of paper crafters from beginners to experts.
But remember Close to my Heart is even more than just scrapbooking and homemade cards. Below is one of my new favorite home décor items called designed décor frame kit (z1911). I love how trendy CTMH is and designed a chicken wire frame with coordinating stamps and embellishments.
One last thing to mention for August. When you spend $50 in products you will get the August stamp of the month A Chocolate Affair (s1308) for FREE. Normally the stamp of the month specials are $5 with a $50 purchase, which is a good deal because the retail value of the stamp is $17.95, but free is even better! Pictured below is some examples using the August Stamp of the Month.
