Sensational September Things To Remember!

Thank you for visiting my corner of the internet.   I know that you have lots to do and appreciate your time.     I look forward to seeing everyone and catching up.  Don’t forget to join the Happy Mail gathering when you check out for more free fun!

Do What You Love

Do What You Love

“Do what you love” is so very important, don’t you agree.  For the past 18 years, I’ve been a part of Close To My Heart (CTMH) because I love crafting and I want some of the best products for this.   We were relocating to Guam and I was honestly, in a panic about where I’d get my crafting supplies from!  I wanted to be sure I was able to get paper, stamps, and scrapbooks.   Getting them at a discount was just an added bonus for me.

From a simple decision to join CTMH (formally DOTS when I joined), I gained so much more than a discount.  I gained a community of amazingly talented artists to inspire me.  Friends, both as customers and consultants, who have walked 18 years of life with me.    We’ve laughed, cried, and created memories to last a lifetime.  You just can’t go wrong with this.   Look at this amazing kit you receive plus you’ll get a $50.00 CTMH Cash shopping spree to pick the supplies you want in your kit and a free Magical Paper Pack.  It’s really a “Consultant Kit Your Way”!   Did I mention that you get to pick your new supplies from the upcoming Holiday Expressions because consultants get a “preview” period where we can order ahead of everyone else!   The value is over $200.00 for an investment of $75.00 (over 60% discount).

 

Join our team, WWStampettes, this month and get the “Kit of the Month” for free!  You’ll only need to have the Stamp of the Month to create this cards.  The cards are cut and ready for you to stamp.  Embellishments are included!  =)  

 

Here’s a sample of one of the cards, a different take on the same sentiment:

What a day, April 1!!

What a day, April 1!!

What a day, April 1!  Seriously.  Happy Easter, everyone. He has risen!  It’s also April’s Fool Day.  And if that’s not enough to celebrate on one day,  Jeff and I celebrate 18 years of marriage today.  This also coincides with 18 years with CTMH.  Poor Jeff has never know life without CTMH since we were married.  This is the perfect to celebrate many important things: Jesus, fun, my best friend, family, CTMH which provides an outlet for my passion to create and all the marvelous friends which come from this love.  Very rarely will this occur on the same day.

The 1st of April also means changes in CTMH’s specials.  Let’s take a look!

Hello Friend and heads up

Hello Friend and heads up

Check out this super cute Hello Friend dragonfly card that will be on the Come and Play Card Buffet.  My goal is to clear out some of the stash of papers that I have hanging around.  Using the Cricut to create this dragonfly and retired Dream Big papers, here’s a great card for the Card Buffet!

The sentiment is stamped on a banner from the banner thin cut dies which are on sale for $10.49 or $27.90 in the banners bundle.

Liquid Glass is used over the wings to create the glossy effect.  Tried to keep it “in the lines” of the wings but some went out.  You can layer the Liquid Glass, letting it dry between coats.
