    Annual Inspirations New Product Blog Hop

     Annual Inspirations 

    New Product Blog Hop

    A blog hop is just one big loop of fun ideas as you visit each blog along the way. If you are coming from Miss. Carrie's Creations, you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link at the end of my post (and successive posts) to see which blog to visit next.

    One of my favorite papers from the new Annual Inspirations idea book is the Basics Fundamentals Paper Packet. This is just one of 7 double layouts that I created for my Half-pack Basics Fundamentals Scrapbook Kit.  For the entire kit, in addition to a half pack of the Basics Fundamentals packet, I used most of a combo pack of new basic cardstock, some White Daisy cardstock, and a few sheets of the lovely new color of the year, Bashful cardstock.  I'll be looking forward to sharing the other 6 layouts from this kit in a few weeks. 

    My class reunion is coming up this weekend so I decided to use one of the 7 double layouts for a reunion layout. 

    The layout design is from the new Make It From Your Heart volume 3 
    just released in this idea book.


    To embellish the layout I used letters, numbers, and the word reunion from the new 
    CTMH Cricut  YOU ARE HERE Collection.   
    The flowers are cut from one of the cards in the 
    Golden Moments Cut Above card kits.  
    Since it is a "Golden" event, the 50 is cut from our beautiful new Gold Foil Paper.

    August CTMH Specials

    August Specials
    You won't want to miss these!

    August Online Warehouse Sale 
    During the month of August CTMH is offering an online Warehouse Sale available on my website!
    • Starting on August 1, CTMH will publish a set of retired items and product bundles at an amazing 50% discount! 
    • These items will be available for a week—while supplies last of course—and then they will be replaced by a new set of offers the following Tuesday.  
    • To sweeten the deal, for these sale items, you'll be charged shipping only on the price paid instead of on the retail value—it’s an awesome opportunity for EXTRA savings! 

    Jump for Joy Hostess Special 
    If you've never been a hostess before, August is the month you should do it.  

    • During August CTMH is bringing back an exciting special just for hostesses: when a Gathering party reaches the third level of Hostess Rewards or higher ($350 US), your rewards will “jump up” a level, which means as a  hostess you will get EXTRA Hostess Rewards and maybe even an extra 50%-off item! 
    • Now wouldn't you like this chance to jump for joy! Let me know if you'd like to book a gathering (your home or my workshop) or host an on-line gathering -- what could be easier?
    • If you would like to book a girls night with some friends in August contact me A.S.A.P.  I would love to create some cards, layouts or show some fun papercrafting projects with you and some friends to help you earn MORE FREE in August!!

    New Consultant Special 
    Ever thought about becoming a CTMH consultant and a member of my team?  
    • Again, August is the time to do it!

      • Choose the brand new Thin Cuts Block Alphabet with the In the Background stamp set,
