Hello September - New Idea Book, National Stamping Month and Gorgeous SOTM

I am sooo excited about September!  I don't even know where to begin!  Our new CTMH Idea Book goes live today.  It's National Stamping Month and I love, love, love the September SOTM!

Let's start with the SOTM because I am planning to share cool samples all month long.  This is definitely a stamp set you are going to want to add to your collection.

Here's a beautiful sample made by the artists at the Home Office.  I love how they made it look like watercolor!



Next Up:  Three fun stamp sets to celebrate National Stamping Month!!

September is National Stamping Month, and this year Close To My Heart has something to help every kind of papercrafter say a big “hello” to life! Available only during the month of September, these exclusive C-size My Acrylix® Hello, Life! stamp sets can be purchased for $13.95 USD / $16.50 CAD each! Or, for an even better deal, you can purchase all three for only $34.95 USD / 41.50 CAD—a savings of $6.90 USD / $8 CAD! Each stamp set is designed to fit with a specific type of papercrafting, whether that’s scrapbooking, cardmaking, or pocket scrapbooking. However, all the stamp sets coordinate with each other and can be used together to create dynamic artwork. These stamp sets also coordinate with shapes from the new Cricut® Artistry collection to help expand your artwork options even further. Remember, these stamp sets are available for one month only, so get your orders in for one stamp set—or all three—before these gorgeous stamps disappear! Make certain to follow Close To My Heart’s blog, Instagram, and Facebook page for artwork inspiration featuring these lively stamp sets all month long. You can post your own artwork to your social media channels using the hashtag #ctmhHelloLife.

Gift Bag with the CTMH August SOTM

Check out this cute gift bag the Home Office made with the August Stamp of the Month (SOTM) and the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.



The stamp set is so versatile, you could re-use this idea all year long by just switching out the paper and the sentiments.  It would be perfect for Mother's Day, Christmas, Father's Day, Birthday and Valentines Day.  What kind of goodies could you fill it up with?

August Stamp of the Month and Fundamentals Paper



I love it when the Stamp of the Month's are so versatile that they can be used all year long!  The labels in the August SOTM lend themselves well to being used as little tags on bags and boxes, but work perfectly on cards too.



The fundamentals paper packs are being redesigned and we'll get all new patterns in September so I have been busily using up my current patterns.  Pair the fundamentals up with matching cardstock and it creates a great monochromatic look.  (okay, I added a pop of grey..so can you!.. .LOL)

Project Organization CTMH style

I am absolutely LOVING the Marker and Accessory roll-ups from CTMH!  They are made from a really sturdy denim-ish (new word!) fabric.  Ever since I got the marker roll-up, I have been looking for excuses to color or to take my markers somewhere.  LOL.  I think I just like unrolling it to see them all lined up. Yes, I'm a nerd!!

If you NEED these roll-ups, you'll want to purchase them this month because you get extra FREEBIES when you order them in August.

Order your accessory roll-up in August and you receive the two newest Base & Bling style sheets FREE!  You can use them to create fun necklaces, zipper pulls, keychains... or use the adorable stickers on cards, scrapbook pages or mini-albums.



AND when you order the Marker roll-up (have I mentioned how much I love it???) You get this adorable hot-air balloon stamp set for FREE.  The stamp set is valued at $17.95!!!  That is such an awesome deal.




Don't delay...head on over to my website to get your roll-ups before the special is over!

Information and Tips:
When I first got my marker roll-up I thought I was never going to be able to snap it closed!!!  I had to roll it up a couple of times, snap it open and closed a few times and then it "broke" in.  So don't worry if it's a bit tight at first.

CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge Rose Card

Uh oh....bad blogger here!!  I wrote a bunch of posts and never scheduled them to publish!!  Well, get ready for a bunch of new content coming your way, because I have an obsession... with the NEW CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge!!!!!




This rose is actually two pieces!  I cut the base in white, then cut the flower in Sunset.  I wanted to use my adorable polka-dot paper from the Zoe paper packet sparingly (I think I need it for more projects!!!!) so I just laid a piece on top of the leaves and hand cut around it.  


Products Used:
  • Zoe Paper Pack
  • Artistry Cricut Cartridge
  • Topiary Ink
  • S1508 Framed - August Stamp of the Month

You can order all of your Close To My Heart supplies on my website
