October Specials with Close to My Heart

Welcome to October…can you believe we’ve already made it to the 10th month of the year?

October is a busy month for me…most of the activity centers around our annual Pumpkin Carving Party.  We enjoy hosting parties here at our house so adding one more in the fall seemed like just the thing to do.  I’ve also added a new class to my lineup – Monday Mayhem – I’ll describe it more later.

Let’s visit the Close to My Heart Specials:

  • September Stamp of the Month – Christmas Tunes
  • October Special – Share a Smile
  • Round Up Matching for Operation Smile
  • Classes

Christmas Tunes – This set of 7 stamps will have you humming along while creating your Christmas cards this month.  The exclusive “D” sized stamp set is yours for just $5 with a qualifying purchase during the month of October.

Share A Smile –  With the purchase of every Punny Pals stamp set, Close To My Heart donates $7 USD of the proceeds to Operation Smile™, an organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children around the world. To bring these stamp images to life, we’ve made a coordinating set of Thin Cuts dies and an exclusive
card kit! The card kit includes the dies, card bases, envelopes, paper, and step-by-step instructions for creating 32 cards, and it is available at a discounted price! Create these delightful cards and use them to share smiles all around!

Round Up Matching – With every order you have the opportunity to “round up” and donate to Operation Smile, but the month of October is Special because Close to My Heart will match those Round Up Donations up to 10,000.  I am really hoping that ALL of my customers will choose to participate in the Round Up and help me increase my Operation Smile Donation thermometer.  If you have any questions on how you can help feel free to leave a comment on my blog or e-mail me.  I am around 1/4 of the way to my annual goal of funding at least one smile.

Thin Cuts – Blog Hop

ThinCutsBadge

Welcome to the Thin Cuts Blog Hop – we will be featuring the fantastic Thin Cut Die Cuts from Close to My Heart this month.  There are 18 consultants sharing amazing work using the thin cuts if you have came here from Alyson’s blog you are on the right path, if you’re starting here that’s ok the blog hop is a great big circle and if you click the links at the end of each post you will make your way around and end up back where you started.  If you get lost along the way – you can find the entire list of hoppers at Melinda’s Blog:  http://ifyoublingit.blogspot.com/p/stamp-of-month-blog-hop-list.html.

Thin cuts are a thin metal die that gives you a fast and easy way to cut all types of shapes for your crafting!  This month they are available for 25% off.

I decided to share a fun project using the Dreamin’ Big Scrapbook Workshop Your Way – the cutting instructions include  a set of 9 cards – 3 each of 3 designs.  I packaged them all up in a magazine file that I cut using the Cricut.  If you join my Workshop Your Way class this month – you’ll receive the paper to put this box together as well.

 

The Dreamin’ Big Bundle consists of a stamp set with variety of bugs and some adorable sentiments (love that script) and the matching thin cuts.  Remember all the thin cuts are on sale for 25% off during the month of March only.

Now “Hop” on over to Brenda’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!

Jeepers Creepers

Where’d ya get those peepers?  Did you read that first line to the tune of the song?

It’s probably no surprise that I love Halloween.  I always explain that I don’t like the creepy, scary Halloween…just the fun stuff – cute kids dressed in their favorite super hero and all the little princesses.

Do You Remember?

that time in September?  LOL!  That’s all I could think of after I wrote the title for my blog post!  I pulled out an oldie, but goodie when I made this card.  It took three of us crafting together to finally pull it off and NOW the scraps of Pemberly are gone.

Do you have a drawer of half used papers?  I challenge you to get them out and use them.  Someone would love to find a cheery card in their mailbox and it gives you more room to add new 🙂
