June Constant Campaign

Here is the flyer for the June Constant Campaign......

 Layout #1 - there are three shape pieces not included with your kit because they were only included with the WOTG.  You could cut those shapes from regular paper if you like.  The same with Layout #2.

Layout #3-  The green photo mats are extra just to show you where the pictures go.  That paper is not in your kit.

Artiste -- New Cricut Cartridge

If you love your Cricut, you are going to love the new Artiste cartridge which is exclusive to CTMH.  If you have the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge, you know how much stuff is packed into one cartridge and it is the same with the Artiste cartridge. 

Check out this video that was made by Beverly Tiemann, who is lucky enough to have her cartridge already.  Doesn't this just make it hard to wait until August 1 to order????

Out With The Old....In With The New!!

As I told you yesterday, CTMH's annual convention ended on Saturday.  There are some amazing changes to come beginning August 1, and one that has taken effect immediately.

If you love Studio J, you will now love it even more!!  Effective immediately, there will no longer be membership fees to access all of the wonderful and amazing layouts and papers!  Everyone will have access to everything.  Also, the price per layout has been lowered to $6.95, which was the price that members previously paid.  One more thing -- everyone will get a jpeg of their pictures so they can post them online, share in an e-mail, ect.   Those of you that use Studio J will love this!  And if you have never used Studio J before, now is a great time to start!  If you didn't know, Studio J is our amazing online scrapbooking program.  You can scrapbook anywhere you have an internet connection, you don't have to print the millions of pictures you have saved on your computer, and you can create till your hearts content and not have to pay for anything until you place your order for your layouts to be printed!!  If this sounds like something you would be interested in, follow my STUDIO J link to read more about this amazing program.  And if you have questions, email me.

Here are some of the other changes taking place:

1. 13 WOTG;  8 scrapbooking layouts, 2 card classes and 2 home decor;

2.  New Exclusive Cricut Cartridge;

3.  Our color palate is being revamped, including  6 new colors; Saddle, Cashmere, Champagne, Slate, 
     Whisper and Ruby;

4.  Pigment inks in all colors;

5.  All new alcohol markers with 2 shades for each color;

6.  We can now buy 24 sheets of cardstock in all colors again (Yay!!); and

7.   A new storage option.

There some other things that you will have to wait until August to learn about, but I wanted to give you something to get you as excited as I am!!

Of course, when you add all of these new things, some things will need to be retired.  The following is a listing of all the products that will no longer be available after July 31.  If you feel you need to get any of these products before they are gone, you can either order them from my WEBSITE or email or call me with your order. 

Since they are revamping our color palate, the following colors are retiring.  If you don't feel you can part with them, better order another stamp pad and/or reinkers before the end of the month.

Well, Close To My Heart's annual convention wrapped up last night. I was disappointed that I wasn't able to go, but so excited about all of the new and exciting products and changes that you will all enjoy with the release of the 2012 Fall/Winter Idea Book which goes live to customers on August 1.  There is a Regional Celebration in St. Louis the end of September.  This is sort of a 'mini convention' where we will get some wonderful ideas.  I am hoping I can attend that and at this point, it is looking good!

There are so many fun and exciting changes with this new Idea Book - I know you are all going to love it!   I will have another post tomorrow which will give you a sneak peak of some of the exciting news, so make sure you check back and see what is in store.

February's Monthly Club Pages

My goodness -- I am cetainly behind on getting things on here. I have a few months to catch up on.  I should start back with October, but I am going to put February's on here first, since everyone is already done with October! 

In February, we worked with the Stella papers.  This is my absolute favorite paper from the new Idea Book.  I made the two layouts from the Workshop on the Go, and then did the third layout from one of the idea books.  Here are the pages we made:

Masculine Birthday

I really struggle with masculine cards.  Here is a card I made for my boss for his birthday.  Nothing too fancy.
