September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Feel So Blessed

Close To My Heart 
September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop 

Feel So Blessed


A blog hop is just one big loop of fun ideas.  If you are coming from Tracie's blog,  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.  

This month's stamp set, Feel So Blessed, features 26 stamps and is available only through the month of September.  You can purchase this cute set for $17.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant. .



For my project I worked on the opening page for a new album I intend to start this fall to include photos and journaling about all the wonderful blessings in my life. 

To begin this layout, I traced a partial circle with pencil, created a mask of the feather stamp and then stamped feathers around the line with Expresso ink.  I then used a blender pen to shade in the feathers using Expresso, Goldrush, Saffron, and Fern inks.  The small flowers were cut from the Falling For You floral paper. 




CTMH supplies used  
Cardstock: Expresso, Goldrush, Fern
Paper: Falling For You, White Daisy, Espresso, Goldrush (lighter side) and Fern (lighter side) Cardstock
Ink: Expresso, Fern, Goldrush, and Saffron


Thanks for stopping by today.  Now, join me as we hop on to see more ideas for this fun stamp set as we  visit Miss Carrie's Creations .  Be sure to visit all the consultants who have joined in on this blog hop for lots of inspiration for this stamp set.  If for some reason, you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of participating consultants on Melinda's blog to get back on track.

    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.
       

    CTMH products used on this layout - click on each link to see an image of each product
    Papers:
    Linen cardstock
    Pattern: Make It From Your Heart -Volume 3  pp. 6 - 7
    Circut Collection: You Are Here
    Cut Above Card Kit - Golden Moments
    Picture My Life Tabbed Journaling Cards
    **Just a note -- I really like the new two toned cardstock.  Such versatility!

    Join me as we hop on to see what new products Jen Rubio is showcasing. All the participants in this blog hop are listed here if per chance you need to get lost along the way.

    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! https://kburrows.closetomyheart.com/ctmh/promotions/campaigns/1708-warehouse-sale.aspx
    • 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

    Workshop cutting guides are available upon request with a minimum $20 order placed on my website for each cutting guide.



    Retiring products and changes



    Going, going, almost gone!

    The current Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations Idea Book
    will be retiring July 30th.  So if you have some favorite products,
     now is the time to get them before they're gone.


    To see which products will be retiring, 
    visit my website to see the Going Soon tab or click here.


    OTHER THINGS YOU'LL WANT TO KNOW



    1.  Anyone who places an order this month will be entered into Mystery Hostess 
    drawings for free products through the Hostess Rewards program.

    2.  Stampaganza  (Buy two stamp sets - get one free) is on through the end of July.  

    3.  There is still one more month before the Seasonal Expressions 2 (small idea book)
    retires August 31st.

    4.  There will be changes in the basic color palette in the new idea book. (papers/inks) 
    Black will no longer be a part of the basic color palette.  It will stand alone like White Daisy. 
    A new basic color palette is on the way, so if any of the current brown or gray shades 
    are your favorites, get them before they retire.  Colonial White is also going to retire.  


    5.  The new exclusive Ink Pads, most papers, and stamp prices will not change
    in the new catalog, however some items will have price increases in the new 
    idea book.
    Here are the products that will have a price increase.
