CTMH December 2014 Stamp of the Month: Cutie Pie

I had to update this post because I just learned new information:

Cyber Monday Only: 20% Off All Cricut® Collections!

 For the first time ever, Close To My Heart is offering a Cyber Monday Sale on Monday, December 1, 2014. There has never been a better time to buy Close To My Heart’s exclusive Cricut® Collections for 20% off the retail price. Whether you love scrapbooking, cardmaking, or creating 3-D projects, our four exclusive Cricut® collections make the perfect addition to any craft room! Sale starts at midnight (MST) on December 1 and ends at 11:59 pm Monday night.

Enjoy extra savings on Close To My Heart's exclusive Cricut® collections this Cyber Monday!

If you would like more information about any of the Close To My Heart's exclusive Cricut® collections, you will find in here on my blog or on my OBA. Because there are so many tips and ideas for using Artbooking and Artfully Sent, I have special pages for those cartridges. Purchasing one Cricut® collection qualifies you for the SOTM for only $5 and the Deal of the Decade (see below).

In addition, I will extend the offer I made on the Artfully Sent collection to the purchase of any Close To My Heart’s exclusive Cricut® Collections:

Every person that orders Artfully Sent or any other Cricut® Collection from my Online Business Address, aka OBA, will receive their own copy, if I have not already given you one, of Annual Inspirations (a $6 savings). In addition, for each cartridge you purchase, you can choose two M-size or one A-size stamp set (please do not add the stamps or Annual Inspirations to your online order; they will be shipped separately directly from me). Once you place an order for the cartridge(s) of your choice, send me an e-mail with your selection of stamp(s) and I will arrange shipment to you.

If you purchase two Close To My Heart’s exclusive Cricut® Collections, you can select four M-size, two A-size or two M-size and one A-size stamp sets, but you should contact me about setting up a Gathering so you will also quality for hostess rewards.

The Close To My Heart December 2014 Stamp of the Month is Cutie Pie.


Cutie Pie (S1412) is an exclusive D-size stamp set of 11 stamps that you can only purchase during the month of December 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), 2" x 2" (Y1003), 2" x 3½" (Y1009) and 2" x 6½" (Y1010).

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



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 projects at home. Also check my Pinterest Board CTMH 2014 12 Dec SOTM Cutie Pie for additional ideas for using this stamp set.

Please stop back tomorrow for the Cutie Pie Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.

December 2014 also brings us Deal of the Decade.


When I read about the December special I was bowled over. I am so excited about this offer because there is no limit on the number of eligible stamp sets you can purchase at the discounted price. I guess you would like to know what the offer is...

December is the ten-year anniversary of CTMH's industry-changing My Acrylix® clear polymer stamps. Place a qualifying purchase of $50 during the month of December and you will ALSO be eligible to purchase ANY C- or D-size stamp set from the Annual Inspirations idea book for only $10! And as I mentioned above, there is no limit to the number of eligible stamps you can purchase from the Annual Inspirations idea book at the discounted price.

CTMH Corporate created a list of qualifying stamps which I put into a Google documents spreadsheet. I added columns that I thought might be helpful to you: the page the stamp appears on in Annual Inspirations, a place to check if you already own the stamp, a place to check if you want the stamp, if the stamp is Cricut® compatible, and, if so, which cartridge the cut is on.

The spreadsheet of qualifying stamps is sorted by item number. If you want to sort by any of the other columns, just click on the column, go to Data > Sort Sheet (or Range) by column [this will be filled in based on the column you selected] followed by ascending (a to z) or descending (z to a). When you are done with that view, just click the x in the gray bar in the upper right. You can also download the file to your computer and then you will be able to print it (be sure to use the option "Shrink Oversized Pages" if printing a PDF from Adobe Reader).

Because I like to see photos of things I am interested in purchasing, I also created a Pinterest Board of the qualifying stamps so you can quickly see all 72 stamps that are part of this offer.

Seasonal Expressions 1

December 1 is the first day that you may purchase items from Seasonal Expressions 1 where you see this new Cut Above™ Valentine Treat Bag on the cover:


Items in Seasonal Expressions 1 include two new paper packs with coordinating embellishments, one new cardmaking WOTG and one new scrapbooking WOTG, several new stamp sets, new embellishments (shimmer trims, twine, etc.), new Picture My Life™ and Cut Above™. Honestly there are only a couple of stamp sets in SE1 that I do not have on my wish list, but I bet once I see some more items created with them I will be changing my mind. In addition, items purchased from Seasonal Expressions 1 count toward the Deal of the Decade qualifying purchase.

Please stop back on December 7 for the Seasonal Expressions 1 Blog Hop.

December Giveaway

Finally, anyone that purchases from me between December 1 and December 31 will have their name put into a drawing for your choice of one the following new in the package stamp sets: Reel Life (B1431), Love This (B1432) or A Friend Like You (B1410; retired). Your name will be entered for every $20 (before tax and shipping) you spend and, just like the Deal of the Decade, there is no limit on the number of times your name can be entered. Shop my OBA anytime. I will complete the drawing on January 2 and post the results here on January 3, 2015.

If you are ready to place an order or would like to research any product, the Shop Now button will take you there.
