CTMH July Stamp of the Month


I'm a sucker for alphabets. Back in the sticker day I would gravitate toward all the alphabet stickers, but I couldn't use them after running out of  'E' or 'S'.  I never run out of letters with MyAcrylix Stamps from Close To My Heart.  During July treat yourself to this delightful Circus Alphabet (Item # S1407), only available until July 31st.  The 68 piece stamp set is $17.95, but it's only $5 when you add it to your $50 purchase. Either way, it's a great buy.  Visit my website to place your order before July is gone.

February Playgroup - Babycakes

I think the designers at Close To My Heart hit a home run with the Babycakes paper collection (Item G1068**).  It almost makes me wish I had some grandbabies to take photos of and scrapbook. Not quite though.  I've decided to change the layouts a bit to make them a little more generic in case you're like me and don't have photos of little ones.  If your kids are grown, but their baby pictures are still in boxes or on the computer hard drive then this is the motivation you need to get started. *chuckles*

These layouts really take advantage of the Cricut Art Philosopy Collection. I've also added the whimsical gift boxes die cut which is on the Cricut Artbooking cartridge.

You can create these pages at my next playgroup on February 7th in Mesa. Or you can participate long distance and supplies will be mailed to you.  You must order supplies by January 15th. Contact me for details. **The complete workshop kit (G1068) will retire after January 31, 2014.

Have a memorable day!

January Playgroup - ProPlayer

These scrapbook pages were created using the ProPlayer Workshop On The Go (G1067).  They're great pages to use for the men in your life.  Use them for birthday parties, sports, or "just hanging out."  I've added Irresistable Hexagon Shapes (Z1858) for a little more pizzazz.  This complete kit with the exclusive stamp set is only available through February 28th.






Have a memorable day,
