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
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.
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
Sign up and prepay for both Just the Basics and Falling for You card classes for just $25, that’s a $5 savings. If you’re schedule changes last minute your card kit will be available for pick up at your convenience.
Monday Morning Mayhem: Grab your Workshop Your Way Kits or other Close to My Heart products and join me for some crafting mayhem. Space is limited to 6 and you MUST RSVP. This is a FREE non-instructional craft time. Donation to Operation Smile would be appreciated. Please only Close to My Heart Products. Although this is a non-instructional time I will be available to answer questions and some limited product will be available for purchase.
