CTMH November 2014 Stamp of the Month: It's The Little Things

The Close To My Heart November 2014 Stamp of the Month is It's The Little Things.

It's The Little Things (S1411) is an exclusive D-size stamp set of 15 stamps that you can only purchase during the month of November 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.  Recommended CTMH My Acrylix® Blocks are: 1" x 1" (Y1000), 1" x 3½" (Y1002), 2" x 2" (Y1003) and 3" x 3" (Y1006).

Items created with the stamp set by CTMH Corporate artists are this card and cracker box:

If you would like a list of the products used to create either of the above items, you will find the information in the Recipes (clicking the link will open a PDF in a new tab), a booklet that works hand-in-hand with the Idea Book to provide details to re-create any projects at home. Also check my Pinterest Board CTMH 2014 11 Nov SOTM It's the Little Things for additional ideas using this stamp set.

Please stop back tomorrow for the It's The Little Things Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.

November 2014 also brings us Lucky 5.

It is the 5th Anniversary of Studio J® and Close To My Heart is celebrating with reducing pricing and opportunities to win. I posted all of the details and then some on Saturday, October 18, 2014 because I wanted you to have the chance to start creating. Also on that post are links to videos that will help you get started using Studio J® or to refresh your memory if you have not used Studio J® for awhile.

If you are new to Studio J®, there is no software to download, install and maintain. Since Studio J® is web-based most computers are ready for your to start creating with Studio J®. You just need your digital photos, an active Internet connection and a web browser with the Adobe Flash Player plug-in to use Studio J®. The best part? You can create in Studio J® all you want and there is no charge until you want to print your layouts (or download a JPG of them).

I also recommend Studio J® for printing photos. There are some templates for creating photos in various sizes. When you sign into Studio J®, after uploading photos, choose "Start with an Express Collection". Scroll down a little and on the left you will find "Photo Collections". Click on "Photo Collections", then "Continue" and on the next screen there are seven pre-set photo wells collections. There is one for 3" x 4 photos", with half the wells in portrait format and half in landscape, just like the Picture My Life protectors.

On November 3 five new Studio J® Kits will be added. The new kits being added are Confetti Wishes, Snowhaven, Seaside, Pathfinding, and Scaredy Cat. The new kits will have alphabet Stickease and the Quick Title tool option.

Another "new-ish" product in November...

I do not have a picture to show, but CTMH is introducing A la Carte Picture My Life™ scrapbooking programs on November 1. A la Carte PML is an optional way to purchase the currently available Picture My Life™ scrapbooking programs. The A la Carte option only contain the pocket cards — 44 4" x 6" cards (2 of each of 22 design) and 78 3" x 4" cards (3 each of 26 designs) for $14.95. The PML options you are already familiar with (which includes the cards, a 12" x 12" Designed Cover Sheet and 10 12" x 12" Memory Protectors™ in various designs) will still be available.
