February 2015 also brings us Album Allure
During the month of February, while supplies last, when you purchase one of Close To My Heart’s alluring coated canvas albums you will be eligible to receive a second album of your choice at half price (My Legacy™ faux leather albums are excluded). The albums are available in both post-bound and D-ring styles in three colors and patterns. The albums are perfect to use with traditional, Studio J® or pocket scrapbook layouts. They hold from 25 to 50 layouts depending on their thickness. If you order from my OBA, after a qualifying album is in your cart you will be prompted at checkout to add a discounted album. As long as supplies are available you may purchase one half price album for each qualifying album you have in your cart.
On my December 24, 2014 post I shared a video showing the album options. Also on that post is a video about the Spine Expanders (Z4120). You will want to add spine expanders to post-bound albums when you have thicker layouts to protect the dimensional elements from crushing or when your album is for a specific event and you do not want to add additional pages (the spine expanders will "fill the gap" so the posts that hold the album together are less visible).
The available album options are:
- My Legacy™ Lagoon Chevron D-Ring Album (Z2090)
- My Legacy™ Ruby Floral D-Ring Album (Z2091)
- My Legacy™ Black D-Ring Album (Z3034)
- My Legacy™ Lagoon Chevron Post-Bound Album (Z2092)
- My Legacy™ Ruby Floral Post-Bound Album (Z2093)
- My Legacy™ Black Post-Bound Album (Z2094)
Studio J® Express Collection featuring designs from Yuletide Carol
Do not forget that this limited edition Express Collection is only available until February 28. Additional details are on my January 12, 2015 blog post.
Seasonal Expressions 1
You may recall when Seasonal Expressions 1 was introduced on December 1, 2014 that I mentioned the life of this Idea Book is only four months, until March 31, 2015 (you will find the dates at the top of the back cover). Some of the items in Seasonal Expressions 1 are seasonal in nature, indicated by a clock, and will not be available after March 31. Be sure to look at the Icon Legend in the lower left corner of page 1 and compare to the icon shown next to each item. I have a CTMH Idea Book - Seasonal Expressions 1 Pinterest Board if you would like to see items created with products in that Idea Book.
One update I would like to point out is the My Acrylix® You’re the Bomb stamp set (C1617) pictured on the back cover of Seasonal Expressions 1 is available only for the duration of the Idea Book (until March 31, 2015) even though the icon does not show that. I would also like to remind you that purchasing You're the Bomb generates a $3 donation to Operation Smile (except in AL and MA where it is excluded by due to legal requirements).
