Just Treats CTMH SOTM

New month equals new stamp of the month!

I’ve been seeing a lot of artwork popping up on Facebook lately with images from the current SOTM and it’s got me chomping at the bit. I can hardly wait to get mine! Also, I can’t wait to put my haven back together. Crafting without it bites. Cue sad face ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

What is the stamp of the month, and what makes it so special? Well, as the name implies, it’s a new stamp set that’s featured every month at Close to My Heart, and it’s only available during that particular month. Once the month comes to a close, the stamp set is retired, and a new one takes its place at the start of the next month. Every month, it’s something different. One month, it could be pretty, frilly and floral, and the next it could be Christmas or Halloween themed. Much like September’s Just Treats SOTM. See it below.

That’s part of what makes the SOTM special! It constantly changes, it’s available only for a limited time, and it’s an incredible deal.

When a customer places an order on their consultants’ website- either online or by the consultant herself- when that order reaches $50 CAD, the shopper automatically becomes eligible to purchase the SOTM at a huge discount. Yes, that’s right. You’ll receive a steep discount when your order reaches $50 or more. This stamp set retails for $24, but you can get it for $6.

Isn’t that amazing?! CTMH is all about giving back, so in addition to such a fantastic incentive for placing an order, they take it a step further, and give each shopper a break on shipping charges. Shipping is always $10 or 10% of the order total, whichever is greater. CTMH is honestly so generous!

I’ve sent parcels myself, and shipping starts at $15 and goes up from there. To date, the most for shipping I’ve charged was nearly $30. We are getting a great deal on shipping from CTMH. There’s so much to love about this company; the two points I shared with you barely scrapes the surface of the iceberg.

September’s SOTM is available for the remainder of the month. You can purchase it now from my website. Click here to visit my website and get your hands on this festive stamp set! Don’t forget, it’s just $6 when your order total reaches $50 or more!

Happy shopping, friends!

Hi guys!

September is going to be a big month! My word, I’m going to need all your help!

Help me reach $500 in sales THIS MONTH, and Iโ€™ll be able to show you Januaryโ€™s CTMH campaign early- like OCTOBER early!!

Everyone that places orders through me THIS MONTH ONLY will receive a special gift as a thank you ๐Ÿ™ Are you in?! Weโ€™ve got 28 days left to make this happen! Letโ€™s do this!

theeverydayscrapbooker.closetomyheart.ca

Order anything you’d like, as many times as you’d like. There’s nothing specific you need to purchase, and there’s no hidden surprises for helping me out. Instead, I’ll give back to you. Every person that makes an order this month only, will receive a $5 credit on their next order. Just one $5 credit per person, though.

You’ll also get a sneak peek of January’s National Paper crafting month special. Any guesses as to what it might be? I couldn’t even venture a guess!

I’ll have more to share with you later this month (sales campaigns, favourite products, organization tips (ink, more specifically), and more. Stay tuned- it’s going to be a wild ride!

July CTMH SOTM

This layout makes my heart go pitter- patter.

Bright colors make me so happy. When it jives it makes me even happier. I paired Raspberry card stock with some retired Whimsy patterned papers for this sweet layout about a homework assignment the twins brought home. It included Flat Stanley. I have space for journaling, but I’m leaving it blank right now because I need a few important details from the twins. (Mainly, what the homework assignment was, lol). It’s so important to record the details- big or little- and this is why! My memory sucks!

I used two different stamp sets in this layout too, but you’ll have to look hard to see the second one. Central Park is easy to spot- it’s the houses and title; July’s stamp of the month is harder to spot because it’s in one small area of the layout. The arrow in the upper left of page 1, with home stamped in it is from the SOTM. Check out this layout:

The SOTM is all over the place in this one. It’s perfect for a ton of different layout themes- from work to birthdays to concerts to even your pets. What’s not to love about this stamp set?!

The SOTM is only available until the end of July, so it’s for a limited time. It’s yours for $23 CAD when you order from my website. If that order reaches $50 total (or more), our gift to you is dropping the SOTM price to just $6 CAD. This is such a great deal. A lot of people love getting it at a discounted price; I know you will too. (I think I’ll be hanging onto this stamp set for awhile. It’s so versatile, I can see it being useful for lots of things). If you agree (even if you don’t), you’ll find it very useful. You should buy it. Don’t miss out!

Of Leopards and Apples ๐ŸŽ

I took a bit of time to create a personal layout, and I’d like to share it with you.

Central Park is a perfect match for the photo in my layout. The Blue, yellow and red are already found in those papers, so it was only natural to pair them together.

If you noticed, I didn’t use strictly Central Park papers here. I used whatever scraps I had that coordinated- and happily, that was lots of scraps! I trimmed them into 2×2 squares, and arranged them in a grid above and below my photo. I used a zip strip from the Central Park range as a border, and stamped the cute leopard print next to that.

I also thought immediately of B1568 Wild Backgrounds for the leopard print in Miss M’s pyjamas. It only made sense to utilize that stamp somehow, too. And lastly, I figured I had better use June’s SOTM before the month ran out!

I watercolored the apples and apple basket from the A Bushel and a Peck SOTM. I also used one of the sweet sentiments in it, as well as the small graphic stamps to add some flourish. Another one made up my title. How sweet is you are awesome to the core?

Leopard print and apples seems like an unlikely pair, but it works here! I wonder if leopards eat apples when they’re feeling peckish? ๐Ÿ˜‰

June CTMH Card Blitz

How is everyone doing? I’m just over here, prepping for my last card blitz of the year, and a last minute crop. If you’re in the area this Saturday (the 2nd) or June 23, join me!

Here’s what’s up for my card blitz, so far.

I finally used our stamp of the month! I should have used it weeks ago, but there were other things on the go. I’m glad there’s still today and tomorrow left to snag it. So, if you like what you see, order it up! It’s just $6 when you make a $50 order. Saving rocks! This offer ends at 11:59 pm tomorrow evening (MST). (The SOTM cards are the two yellow ones near the end, FYI). There’s just a few cards there ๐Ÿ˜‰ I don’t want to confuse anyone, that wouldn’t be good!

I still have a few more cards to make for this blitz, including some Fathers’ Day cards! And, you know what the greatest news ever is?!

I’ve been invited to share my upcoming card blitz with the community facilitator in Fox Creek! If you’re in the area, stay tuned for the dates. I’d love to have you join us! I’ll need 5 people committed to coming otherwise it won’t happen! Dates will be announced shortly, so stay tuned! (Facebook might be best, just in case I don’t make it back here to share with you).

Where am I on Facebook? Here!

FYI- I have another one in Fox Creek scheduled for this Fall, too. You’ll definitely want to watch for more info on that! It’ll be a lot of fun! And, as always, kits are available to long distance customers. Can’t make it? No sweat! Order a kit to complete on your own, instead!

More CTMH Postcard Perfect

I played with Postcard Perfect some more today!

Look at all those bright and warm colours, and that stunning vellum! And, as I said before, I’ll be hoarding this paper. I just love it too much.

In the top layout, I used one of the icons from the cut apart sheet of paper. It just jumps off the page!

This paper collection is coming to you next week! Yes, next week already! April has just flown by, and I’m super excited to share all May has in store for us! Keep coming back here- right here– to learn more!

CTMH Postcard Perfect

Hi everyone, I have a new project to share today! It feels so good to switch gears and focus on layouts for a change! (I’ve been hung- ho for cards for the last little bit).

There’s a special paper packet that’s coming available in May, and I think you’re going to love it. It’s called Postcard Perfect, and it’ll compliment your summer and vacation pictures perfectly! Think palm trees, hibiscus, waves, vellum, and more!

Yes, it’s got vellum- and it’s printed vellum! It’s to die for!

Doesn’t it just scream exotic vacation?! If you have none of those, like me, don’t fret. These papers will compliment your closer-to-Home vacation photos too. They’ll even compliment non-vacation photos!

In this layout, I paired a retired stamp with the coordinating stamp and papers from this collection. Don’t those waves remind you of the ocean? Your favourite lake, maybe?

Join me again in the near future for more projects using this special, limited time only paper packet. Yes, limited time. Available only from May1-31, 2018.

Visit my website to order yours!

CTMH Postcard Perfect

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share some artwork with you today! Do you have pictures of a vacation you took in an exotic location- or just a fab vacation that you’ve been waiting for the perfect papers to scrapbook them on?

This will interest you if you’re one of those people! I have to admit, I had to go searching for anything even remotely holiday related, but I did find a couple pictures in my pile to scrapbook ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

The beaches and margaritas are calling…they want you to join them for rest and relaxation. Or, at least, re-live your rest and relaxation on the beaches, or on your cruise, or in the remote wilderness of Alaska. I re-lived beach day at school a couple years ago. The twins dressed up in their grass skirts and lei’s for the occasion.

I’m so excited to share this paper packet and coordinating stamp set with you! All the papers in it are reminiscent of the beach- from wavy patterns, to Hawaiian floral patterns, to super cute itty bitty polka dot bikini type of patterns (no bikinis, just polka dots).

The best part of the paper packet is that there’s 4 sheets of printed vellum in it! There’s a gorgeous palm leaf pattern and another polka dot pattern! There’s two sheets of each of those patterns! There’s also two sheets of a cutaway paper that adds the perfect accent pieces to your projects!

All the sheets in the paper packet- and there’s 24 of them- are printed on both sides, so you’ll get twice the mileage of one sided sheets! There’s also a wide range of colours that coordinates with it- including mint, white daisy, peacock, and our colour of the year- bashful. You’ll see those four colours displayed in my layout above.

The stamp set has a variety of images and phrases to choose from, too. I created a sort of vintage- Las Vegas-esque postcard to the right of my pictures using them. So, the palm trees, let’s go image and adventure awaits image are all included. So is the hisbiscus flowers, as well!

Want to get your hands on this exclusive kit? It’s available May 1! Contact me to order yours- I’d love to hook you up! And, in the mean time, stay tuned for more inspiring artwork!

April SOTM- Colour Your Life

I didn’t share everything that’s happening at CTMH this month. I thought spreading it out might be a good idea, too!

There is a new stamp of the month for April, too! I love that CTMH highlights one stamp set every month, and attacheS such fantastic savings to it, too!

Savings, you say?

Yes, this stamp set- on its own- is $23 CAD. It’s a D-size stamp set, meaning it’s one of the larger stamp sets we carry. When you purchase this size stamp set with other items equaling $50, the price drops to just $6. That’s where the savings comes in. Pretty great deal, right?

I can’t help but see opportunity with this stamp set. Opportunity to colour, heat emboss, and watercolour. Life, Courage and Kind are great for colouring in using pencil crayons, markers, pens and watercolours. Some of the icons would look great coloured in or water coloured, too. All the italicized words and some of the icons would look so pretty embossed. I guess that’s why it’s named Colour Your Life! What kind of potential do you see in it?
