Close To My Heart Sale

I have a wide variety of stamps, paper and accessories for sale here:

If there is something Close To My Heart  in particular you are looking for please shoot me an email at and I might have it for sale also.  Most items for sale are pre-2011 so if there is an older CTMH item you are looking for I just might have it.

Teacher Appreciation invitation – Tropical theme

I had a lot of fun with the Tropical theme for Teacher Appreciation this year.  For the invitation I designed a Flip-Flop. I used a real pair of flip-flops to make a template and then cut 78 of them by hand times 2:  the bottom layer and the top layer of the striped paper (CTMH Sophia Paper is retired).  Finally the flower was cut from my Cricut machine with the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge.  The brad in the center of the flower lets the top layer swing away from the bottom layer to reveal the party details.

Holiday Magic – October Stamp of the Month

Back to School layout

Finally, some new art from me!  This layout was inspired by my friend and fellow Close To My Heart Director, Amy Mayhew.  

 This layout features the new Typeset paper pack from Close To My Heart.  A few things worth noting about this layout.  The large scalloped circle, scalloped border, some of the stars and the frames are all images available on the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.   This was my first time playing with the Cricut and I have to say it was so easy and fun!  I now know why the Cricut has taken over the scrapbooking world.  It’s so fun to play with it and see all the possibilities available for the cardmaker and scrapbooker.   A couple other new items from the Autumn/Winter Idea Book are the corrugated stars and the Foundry Pin Clips tucked behind a star. 

Just two more days to get in on a fantastic special from Close To My Heart.  With a purchase of $75 or more and the August Stamp of the Month you will get a free “A” size stamp set – Typeset AND a brand new, exclusive double stamp set called Pair-A-Phrase.  Find all the details here:

Thanks so much!

August Specials from Close To My Heart

Wow!  There are so many incredible new things in the Fall/Winter 2011 Idea Book from Close To My Heart that it is difficult to know where to start.  Rest assured that I’ll be featuring new products and techniques in the weeks to come.  There are wonderful new paper packs and products to inspire us all well into the cold crisp winter months.  

I want to start by telling you about a great deal that will be happening between August 15th and August 30th.  It’s actually a time period where TWO amazing offers will be intersecting, enabling you to take advantage of both at the same time.

The first deal highlights our new Stamp of the month program.  Rather than the Stair-stepped discount that we used to offer, our new program is Faster, Simpler, Easier – You can either buy the stamp of the month for full price (a new LOW $17.95) or you can spend $50 and get it for only $5.00!   To celebrate this great new program, when you spend $50 and get the Stamp of the month for $5.00, you also get the adorable typeface Alphabet set absolutely FREE!!  (a $6.95 value) 

The second deal runs from August 15-September 30th  to celebrate National Stamping Month and offers our first “Double” D set, called Pair-a-Phrase.  It is full of adorable images and sentiments you can use all the year through.  When you spend $75, you’ll get this amazing set FREE (a $35.90 value).

So, if you spend $75 between August 15th and 30th, AND that $75 includes the $5.00 Stamp of the month, you’ll get both the Pair-a-Phrase and typeset alphabet sets!!  That’s a deal too good to pass up!

To kick off the new Stamp of the month program we have the sassy August Stamp of the Month – Wicked.   This set is full of fun images for your Halloween treats, cards & scrapbook pages.  Purchase $50 in product and the stamp of the month is then only $5 for you!

I created a shoe template with the new Roxie paper (duo sided with different patterns on both sides of the paper!).  Fill the shoe with treats and you have a fun favor box.
