Special Offer for Blog Followers and Facebook Friends

Happy Labor Day weekend! As some of you know, I have been busy researching the reasons why a solid waste transfer station should not be constructed within 1 mile of my home. Unfortunately that has put me behind in making samples and trying to schedule home gatherings to show off the products in the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book. To try to make up for lost time starting on September 1 and running until September 8, 2012 UPDATED: I've been asking to extend this offer until September 15, 2012 (for those that are paid twice monthly), I am running a special for my Blog Followers and Facebook Friends (unfortunately, and I am sorry about this, but per the Independent Consultant agreement I can only offer this special to mailing addresses in the United States).

The special is your choice of two "packages":

Cricut® Artiste Collection
Package A includes
Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection

Package B includes
It's Your Day

SOTM September 2012: Fall Favorites

The Cricut® Art Philosophy booklet (PDF format) is similar to those that you have received with other cartridges. I love this cartridge for making gift bags and boxes. At my last home gathering I made several and filled them with hard candies for each guest to take home. I left the extras for the hostess to use. I think it is a nice little treat that also shows the versatility of the cartridge. More images are on Cricut's website.

You will find many great images you will want to cut right away in the Cricut® Artiste Collection handbook. This time they are also providing an Assembly Instructions booklet. Both are in PDF format. More images can be seen on Cricut's website.

Since I cannot edit the online orders you place, here is how I plan to pass the savings on to you:

Please email me and tell me which option listed above you would like to order, your name, mailing address and phone number (in case I have any questions). I will send you an invoice (via PayPal). The invoice will be for the cost of the Cricut® cartridge, shipping and your local tax (if applicable). You will received the SOTM and the National Stamping Month promotion at no additional cost. I ask that invoices be paid by midnight September 15, 2012 and orders will be processed on Tuesday, September 17, 2012 (earlier if payment has cleared). Your shipment will come directly from CTMH in Utah. Shipping will be via FedEx SmartPost (other FedEx options are available at an additional cost - let me know if you would like a quote via email). Once the order has been packaged and I receive your tracking number I will confirm that you also received the tracking number.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

I will also mail (separately via USPS) a copy of the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book to the first 10 people that respond to this offer.

Thanks for stopping by today.

CTMH August 2012 Stamp of the Month: Baroque Borders

The Close To My Heart August 2012 Stamp of the Month is Baroque Borders.

While the name is Baroque Borders, the sample also shows that you can create your own backgrounds with this versatile stamp set. You can go bold by choosing a color of Close To My Heart Exclusive Ink® Stamp Pad that is vastly different than your CTMH Exclusive Papers cardstock or go subtle with a Versamark® Ink Pad (item Z891) which will let you watermark or stamp tone-on-tone images.

It is a set of 5 stamps that you can only purchase during the month of August 2012. The stamp set can by yours for $5 when you place an order of $50 or more in Close To My Heart Products (or you can purchase it for $17.95).

Recommended CTMH My Acrylix® Blocks: 2" × 3 1/2" (Y1009) and 4" × 5" (Y1012).
