Create the Rainbow

After the rain comes the rainbow and Close to My Heart makes the best rainbows ever!  During the month of June you can get 25% off custom card-stock bundles, individual spools of ribbon and select accessories!  There’s even an exclusive stamp set available.

 

I’ve taken the Rainbow Cardstock Bundle (Cranberry, Tangerine, Lemon, Willow, Pacifica & Pansy) and paired it with the new It’s Your Day Thin Cuts Die.  It makes for a very festive birthday card with hardly any work and that’s the best kind of card as far as I’m concerned.

You can find all the details here, but remember the sale prices are only available while supplies last during the month of June.

I’m linking my card to the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge to use Die Cuts.

 

Postcard Perfect

Did you know that May is National Scrapbooking Month?  Not a scrapbooker – no worries the Postcard Perfect products make GORGEOUS cards with a summertime theme.

The paper packet contains 16 sheets , including 4 sheets of white vellum in two different designs.  I love the printed design on the vellum…super cute when layered on B&T paper peaking through.  There is also a coodinating cardstock pack that includes an exclusive “mint” color that you won’t find anywhere else.

I’ll be sharing some fun artwork during May that will make you run right over to my website and add it to your cart.  Unfortunately, this special is only good during the month of May so you aren’t going to want to wait too long.

If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment here and I’ll get back to you as soon as I finish my hula lessons 🙂

Designer Travel:  I am so excited about the new organizational line Designer Travel.  Last month when I attended my weekend retreat I saw this organizational system in person and I was in awe.  What seemed like a black hole of storage actually was organized.  I have a few favorite pieces and what’s even better as a Hostess you can earn this bundle for 50% off.  Let’s set a date and have a party.

Punny Pals Steal the Spotlight

I didn’t think the Punny Pals stamp set could get any cuter, but with the new matching thin cuts in the October Share A Smile card they are 13 times cuter!  That’s one thin cut for each cute little critter!

     

My card is 4X4 and I first cut a circle before running it through the Alphabet Embossing folder.  I added a piece of B&T behind the circle cut out and then popped up the front panel with 3D Foam tape.  I added my die cut and colored animals with some Thin 3D Foam tape.  I think this would make a perfect baby card, birthday card or just a happy hello to share a smile.

Don’t miss out on the Share a Smile card kit…it’s just $39.95 while supplies last.

Thanks for stopping by!

Share a Smile

I am so proud to be associated with a company that supports the lives of children through their partnership with Operation Smile and I’m extremely excited about the October Share a Smile campaign.

First of all, as if the exclusive Punny Pals stamp set was not cute enough on it’s own – the fact that $7 from the sale of each stamp set is donated to Operation Smile makes it just that much cuter and NOW during the month of October or while supplies last you can also get a set of Thin Cuts that will cut out these adorable animals.  Even better there is an exclusive card kit available that includes the Thin Cuts, Card Bases and Envelopes, Paper Pieces and instructions on how to make the adorable cards.

I spent some time in the Craft Coop yesterday to make my October birthday cards (my stash has depleted itself, but I have high hopes of correcting that situation).  I have a stack of retired paper packets that I’m trying to work myself through and I thought the bold red polka dot matched with Honey made for a happy card.  I can’t wait to get my hands on those Thin Cuts because that little puppy popped up would be just adorable!

If you’d like to learn more about the Punny Pals stamp set or the Share a Smile October special please leave me a comment and I’ll be sure to get in touch with you.

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.

Classes: 

Just the Basics:  Thursday, October 5th 10am or 6pm  – This class is designed for the new to seasoned stamper.  We’ll touch on some techniques and fancy folds.  Cards will include birthday, thank you, thinking of you themes.  Papers will focus on using the fundamental line.  RSVP today!  $15

Falling for You:  Thursday, October 19th at 10am.  You’ll be thankful you signed up for this class as you create with the Falling for You papers this month.    Must RSVP by October 5th!  $15
