The Close To My Heart July 2014 Stamp of the Month is Circus Alphabet
When I first saw this stamp set my first thought was "what will I do with this funky alphabet; I have not been to the circus in years", but when I saw the CTMH Corporate artwork I did not see the expected circus-themed layouts, I saw some great out-of-the-box ideas for using this set.
You will find a larger image of each project shown in the above photo, a list of the products used and some hints for recreating the samples above on my OBA > Promotions > Stamp of the Month page. Also check my Pinterest Board CTMH 2014 07 Jul SOTM Circus Alphabet for additional ideas using this stamp set.
Circus Alphabet (S1407) is an exclusive D-size stamp set of 68 stamps that you can only purchase during the month of July 2014. The stamp set can be yours for $5 when you place an order of $50 or more in qualifying Close To My Heart Products. Alternatively you can purchase it for $17.95. The CTMH My Acrylix® Blocks you would use depends on how you plan to use the alphabet (and your level of patience). If you plan to only use a letter at a time (and do not mind needed to stamp many times to complete a word or phrase), the 1" x 1" (Y1000) block is probably find for you. If you would like to be able to place several letters on the block at one time you may want to have the 1" x 3 1/2" (Y1002), 2" x 3 1/2" (Y1009) or the 2" x 6 1/2" (Y1010) blocks on hand.
There are a few things I need to remind you of.
The first is the CTMH Retiring Products. You will find a list of retiring items on my June 14 blog post sorted by product type. Retiring products are available until July 31 or while supplies last. I update the list on the weekend with items that have sold out.
Also ending July 31 (or while supplies last) are the Collections that Save/Five Fab Collections. You will find photos and a description of each collection on my May 23 blog post. The Collections are geared toward different types of papercrafting and allow you to purchase a set of complementary products for $5 to $10 off the regular retail price.
Finally, I anticipate that we might see some items added to While Supplies Last on my OBA in the next month or so. Be sure to check there regularly. Sometimes items sell out the same day they are added.
