CTMH Hostess Exclusive Stamp Set Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH Hostess Exclusive Stamp Set blog hop.  If you came from Marianne's blog you're in the right place.  In the 2014-2015 Annual Inspirations book there are 10 stamp sets available exclusively to hostesses with sales of $150 or more. Don't tune me out yet. Being a hostess is easier than you think.  Check out these sets here and throughout the hop, then read below to see how you can qualify to purchase your very own and start creating.

This is the Better With A Friend stamp set (D1608).  It is so fun and a little sassy.  It's only $10 (retail value of $17.95).  That's over a 40% savings.

Here's a 8x3-1/2" card I made using the Better with a Friend set and the Chalk It Up paper pack (X7184B).  I added some gold embossing, and gold sequins (Z2012).  The pattern for this card is Roundabout from the Wishes "how-to" book.

You can see more artwork at Tanya's blog.

Close To My Heart really knows how to treat their hostesses right.  Not only can you qualify for free products and half-off products, but you also have exclusive stamp sets at your finger tips. And did I mention they're also discounted!  Wahoo!!! Being a hostess doesn't mean hours of cleaning your house and getting rejected by all your friends.  There are many ways to host a party in this day and age. Contact me to find out more.
