August is a bittersweet time in our house, as it may be in some of yours. We are still in the midst of the summer schedule, but at the same time, we are preparing for September and the new school year. (I'll leave it to you to decide which is the bitter and which is the sweet.) This August is extra sweet because it marks the release of Close to My Heart's Autumn/Winter idea book. Let me tell you it looks great! Some of the big news in this idea book - cardstock weight B&T papers, lower prices on stamps and paper packs and a Cricut cartridge that coordinates with many new stamp sets! In addition, there are two fabulous specials going on that you will jump to take advantage of. For the month of August, CTMH is running the Extra, Extra campaign!
And starting August 15 you can also take advantage of the National Stamping month special:
Now that I've whetted your appetites, get out your calendars to make plans to see some of these great products. AUTUMN OPEN HOUSE - Wednesday, August 31 at 7:30 PM Come browse the new idea book, share some snacks and make a fun Halloween card using the August stamp of the month (now just $5 with an order of $50 or more.) No RSVP required.
DREAMIN' WORKSHOP - Monday, September 19, Tuesday, September 20 or Wednesday, September 21 at 7:30 PM
Come create this gorgeous two page layout using some of the wonderful new papers, a workshop exclusive stamp set, shimmer designer brads and the new bronze glitter gel. There are two ways you can participate in this workshop. One option is to purchase the workshop kit that CTMH offers for $29.99 (plus shipping and handling) and at the end of the workshop take the entire kit home with you. If you're not sure about this, why not try the $10 option? (shipping and handling included) Come to the workshop, complete the layout and take home your finished product and your scraps. Less commitment, less mess. Interested in attending the workshop? Just let me know which date works better for you and if you would like the full kit or the $10 option. I hope to see each of you soon. Please let me know if you have any questions about these events or Close to My Heart products. Happy creating!
