Anyway, in the world of Close To My Heart, January is both an exciting and bittersweet month. It's exciting for consultants, because we're able to begin ordering all the newest products to prepare for the newest Idea Book release on February 1st. However, it can be bittersweet, because it's the last month before saying goodbye to some of our favorite products.
If you would like to see which products are retiring, you can now see all of the items on one page on my website. It's also in real time. In other words, once the items are sold out, they will disappear from the web page. (I think it's better than seeing something you love and "gotta have", only to find out it's gone.) So if there is anything you want, you better act quickly.
At any rate, I thought I'd try and create a few posts over the next few weeks that highlight some of my favorite products that are retiring at the end of the month. (Boo hoo!)
I'm going to start with one of my favorite stamps sets...Universal Backgrounds. Here are seven different projects that I created (posted) using this stamp set. If you want to see the original post, just click on the post title below the picture.
Here I've used the grid pattern on the leaves. I've also used the script stamp on a couple of the blue flowers.

And as if the Cloud Nine kit wasn't enough to celebrate National Papercrafting Month, I'm going to sweeten the deal. I will ship the new CTMH Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book to anyone who makes a $50 purchase on my website. The book has a $3.95 value, plus I'll pay the shipping (to U.S. addresses only). Also, to all my local customers...if you place a $35 purchase and pick up the Cloud Nine Kit, I will open up my home in February for a free Cloud Nine workshop! I will provide the inks, blocks, necessary tools, snacks, and the space needed to complete the projects.
Until next time...
