CTMH 2014-2015 Annual Inspirations SNEAK PEEK # 1 - August 2014 Stamp of the Month

You may already know this about me, but for those visiting for the first time, here's a little insight into my personality.  I love sharing CTMH secrets!  I can't help it!  I think that new products and specials should be shared as soon as possible!  For me it builds on the excitement of the new and exciting things to come.

Effective August 1, 2014, Close To My Heart will be changing from twice annual Idea Books to a super fun, year round, Annual Inspirations catalog! This book will be packed full of paper packs, inks, accessories, home decor items, Picture My Life and much more.  It is guaranteed to get your creative paper crafting juices flowing!  There will be over 250 new items revealed! That means if you want to do Christmas/Holiday cards in May, you can do it!  No more waiting for holiday stamps and papers!  

Then, as Close To My Heart is known for, we will keep up with things trendy and fresh in paper crafting by releasing 2 supplemental catalogs called Seasonal Expressions that will premier December 1, 2014 and April 1, 2015.

As an Independent Consultant with the company for almost 2 years now (I joined August 2012), I am very excited for myself and above all, you, my customers.  This will allow me to bring even more variety to the Create & Takes that we do together in our crops as well as offer more opportunities for fee based classes.

The stamp set below is a little sneak peak at what is to come!  This August Stamp of the Month, "What a Hoot" can be yours for only $5.00 with a qualifying order of $50.00!  Have your Halloween cards and party items complete well ahead of the actual holiday!  I'm already picturing adorable tags on give away candy bags using this adorable stamp set!  What do you envision making with this stamp set?

"What a Hoot"  Item # S1408
