Close To My Heart July Promotions

Hi everyone - I recently returned from the CTMH Annual Convention and super excited about our new Holiday Expression Catalog.  There are so many new products, papers, stamps, etc.  Close To My Heart has decided to go back to a Tri-Annual Catalog.  The new catalogs will have more pages filled with amazing inspiration! That means the current Annual Inspiration will retire on August 31, 2018. The Seasonal Expression 2 catalog will also retire on this date with many things retiring. Don't miss out on these items as they will only be available while supplies last!

While we are waiting for the new catalog to debut September 1, 2018, CTMH has some great promotions including Stampaganza.  

Did you know all of our stamps will be retiring in both catalogs?  While I am excited to see the new stamps, don't miss out on getting those My Acrylic Stamps during this amazing opportunity in July - Buy 2; get 1 FREE of equal or lesser value.



In addition they brought back the popular Solos number and letter stamp sets just for July! Solos stamp sets can also be purchased in two different bundles, one for letters and one for numbers, for even more savings! See below for the complete list of Solos stamp sets included in Stampaganza.



For Hostesses: When you host a party that reaches the third level of Hostess Rewards or higher (submitting your party order no later than August 6, 2018), you can choose three number Solos stamp sets, FREE. That’s up to a $29.85 value, totally free! Contact me to have a Party today!
For New Consultants: Anyone who becomes a Close To My Heart Consultant in July can choose three number Solos stamp sets, FREE. That’s up to a $29.85 value, totally free! This is a great time to join Close To My Heart family. I would be honored if you joined my team. Click here for more details and to sign up or contact me for more information.

Lovely Layers - CTMH Technique Blog Hop

MAY 2018 CLOSE TO MY HEART 
TECHNIQUE BLOG HOP

No automatic alt text available.

Thanks for hopping over to my Blog Hop from Haley Dyer's Blog

For this month's technique challenge, I used our new Shell Sentiments Stamp Set ) C1721 to create this beautiful card. 

I have been having fun playing with the Shaving Cream Technique.  To create the background, I used three of the CTMH Reinkers - Espresso, Lagoon, and Pacifica

I love the layered technique on this stamp set and so easy to line up with our clear acrylix blocks!  The stamp colors that I chose for the seashell are:

  1. First Layer - Glacier Ink
  2. Second Layer - Lagoon Ink
  3. Third Layer - Toffee Ink
I hope you are enjoying all the inspiration on the blog hop.  Your next stop is Katy Taylor's Blog.

Super Boy Birthday Card

SUPER BOY BIRTHDAY CARD

Couldn't resist and thought I would share this birthday card I made for our Grandson.  He will be turning 3!  Can't believe how fast time goes by....

I immediately had this idea to create a Slider Card when I saw this Stamp Set and Thin Cuts from our new Seasonal Expression Catalog. 



Supplies Used:

I was shown a slider card at a weekend crop a few years back.  The slider cut was manipulated using my cricut machine from one of the wavy borders from a tag. I used a penny and attached it with a narrow piece of 3-D foam tape to fit in the slider slot.  To give the sliding penny room to move, I double stacked the 3-D Foam tape. 

Hope this helps - enjoy!

CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Blushing Backgrounds


JANUARY 2018 CLOSE TO MY HEART
TECHNIQUE BLOG HOP

Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling

I am so happy that you hopped over from Sarah Devendorf's Blog which means you are on the right path. 

For this month's Technique Blog, I created a Desk Top calendar using a template for an Easel Card. The supplies I used to create this project are:
Cardstock: Lagoon, Glacier and White Daisy
Emerald Ribbon (retired) 







Instructions to Make Easel Calendar Base:
  1. Cut a 5" x 6" White Daisy Cardstock and 6" x 10" White Daisy Cardstock
  2. Using a scoring board, score the 6" x 10" cardstock at the following marks - 5" and 7.5". 
  3. Fold the middle scored section in half; then fold the smaller scored section down/forward. 
  4. Adhere your 5" x 6" base to the front of the easel card on the bottom half. (this is the part you folded down/forward)
The calendar was printed from the Internet and matted on the Glacier Cardstock and Lagoon Cardstock.  The matted pieces were adhered to the Make Waves Paper and attached to the 5" x 6" White Daisy Cardstock base.

I used our new Number Thin Cuts to cut the Year "2018" with White Daisy Cardstock.  Using the "In the Background" of your choice - I chose the dots using the Pansy Stamp Ink Pad. The bottom section with the year is matted with Lagoon Cardstock. The Purple Polka Dot Paper from Make Waves Paper is matted on the Glacier Cardstock and popped up.  This helps the top portion to stay in place. 

I hope you are enjoying all the inspiration on the blog hop.  Your next stop is Amy Ulen's Blog.
