Happy Nat'l Stamping Month!

September not only marks National Stamping Month, it also marks the release of a NEW Idea Book which means NEW products and artwork! There is so much to take in this month so be sure to read below for all the details. 
This is the cover of the Holiday Expressions Idea Book with products available through the end of December, while supplies last.

Want a hard copy? Place an order and you'll get one FREE with your order! Not ready to place an order just yet? Contact me and I'll tell you how I can help you get it in your hands ASAP!
How would you like to see me highlight some of the newest products while in your pjs and without makeup? It will provide you an overview of all the goodness contained inside the pages. I will be doing that through this Facebook Event, starting September 5th! There will be prize drawings and other fun, with active participation!

Invite your friends to join us! I look forward to seeing you there! (If you have another CTMH Consultant, please honor your relationship with them and support their business.)

Craft with Heart!
Our NEW Scrapbook Subscription Program!

Close To My Heart has now released a Scrapbook Subscription Program where you can have a beautiful box delivered to your door. When you receive, it you can enjoy creating beautiful 12" x 12" layouts with ease; needing adhesive, a journaling pen and photos to complete them. 

The process for signing up is very simple and just requires 3 simple steps: 1) Decide if you want to join the 12-month, 4-month or monthly subcription. 2) Await your delivery with the subscription shipped within 2 to 4 business days. 3) Once it arrives, you can open and create with the goodness included. PLUS, I'll add you to a special group where I will support your layout creations and give you some bonus content I will not provide anywhere else!

The 12-month/annual subscription is the greatest value, as noted in the chart above. You'll see you receive FREE shipping (mailed SmartPost) and get a total of 90 FREE photo prints within the year! 

The gorgeous Cut Above layouts will be enjoyable to assemble and will look great with your photos and story!

"Sweet Treats" - Stamp of the Month


I love, love, love all the fun sentiments and images included in this stamp set. It's got potential for a variety of occasions. 

"Thankful for sweet friends like you..." That is a totally appropriate sentiment for those of you reading this newsletter. :)

This was the first card I made with the stamp set but I have some other ideas on my mind and will be creating and sharing them soon! 

You can get this stamp set for just $5, with a qualifying order this month! Details about our Stamp of the Month special can be found on my website - or on my blogwhere I share more about how I created this card. (In fact, the blog post is connected to a Blog Hop where you can view other fun artwork using this set.)

Be sure to add this stamp set to your order!

Bring Back My Pack!

Available through September 30th (or while supplies last)

Make Your Memories Even More Magical!
Close to My Heart has brought back the much-loved Magical paper packet, refreshed with new colors, for a limited time! These playful papers feature stars, stripes, hearts, and polka dots. The More Magical paper packet and coordinating products are perfect for use in any craft featuring amusement parks (Disney), adventure, and parties!
You can find complete details in the More Magical area of my website! On that page, you will also find the FREE downloadable instructions - for the three layouts and two cards, which I have made and LOVE. That gives you an opportunity to see them in even greater detail and you can use those designs for your other creative projects. 

You've Got Class

Available through September 30th (or while supplies last)
This innovative school album earns an A+!
Preserve your child's K-12 school progress with this unique project, which includes instructions and materials for 14 single-page scrapbook layouts. This album also includes special folders made for preserving standout schoolwork and other memorabilia, making it the perfect way to preserve your memories of these formative years.

The "special folder" is one of our retired products, the True Fit Folios. Do you remember them? They were a very popular product years ago and they are back for this special only!  

They do measure 12" x 12", allowing you to design and create a layout as you are used to doing. You can elect to decorate the inside as well, to include additional photos, or simply use that area to store those items you just can't throw in the trash. 

The second image shows you the BACK side of the folder, in this case, highlighting Kindergarten of this boy's school years. Isn't it adorable AND purposeful?

This last image shows one interactive element, incorporated throughout the pages, Flip Flaps! They provide a great way to add additional photos, journaling, or...what about a private message from you to the individual highlighted?

The Folders can be placed in a Memory Protector to safely store the photos and memorabilia. 

The You've Got Class Workshop Kit is a great way to preserve anyone's school memories!
  • Do you have any school photos you still need to scrapbook of yourself, your children, your grandchildren? 
  • Do you have a Senior graduating this year or in the near horizon?
  • Do you know you will be invited to a Graduation in the coming year where this would make a great gift?
  • Or...maybe you have someone who is just about to begin school. Wouldn't this be a great way to document the year's highlights without too much work? AND...on Graduation day, in 12 years, you can provide them with it as a gift!
You can get the kit for $61.95 (retail value of $83.45)! And, like always, you can elect to purchase individual items.

Click on THIS LINK and you will find the You've Got Class Workshop Kit. At the bottom is the FREE and downloadable guide for creating the pages PLUS you'll find thumbnail images of all of the artwork designed for this special.

What kind of party does it have to be?
It doesn't matter! In-person events are the best, in my opinion, because you get to touch, feel and play with the products, as do your guests. However, if you'd prefer not to have to clean your house (LOL), or you don't live near me, we can do a catalog or Facebook party. You will reap the same rewards, regardless of the format!

Why host a party?
You can earn a minimum of $25 in FREE products (select Hostess Rewards) when your party reaches just $150 in sales! the sales increase, so do your rewards and I will do all I can to get you as many FREE products as possible!

Notice that once you achieve the $250 level, you get one item at 50% off (ANY product) and at $350...Exclusive Items kick in!

 This is just one of the bundles you have to choose from at Level 3 and higher; this one with three of our new Craft Organizers! Check out that low price you would pay! Isn't that fabulous?!

If you would like to host a party, CONTACT ME TODAYso we can get it on the calendar! Mine is filling up and I don't want you to miss out!

You invite the guests...I'll do the rest and ensure a great time for all!

Complete details about ourHostess Program can be found here or let me know if you would like me to send you the information.
