Operation Smile Happy Everything

Also during July I will be participating in the Happy Everything Blog Hop. It is based on the My Acrylix® Happy Everything stamp set (D1653). When the Happy Everything stamp set is purchased at full retail price, $17.95, Close To My Heart will donate $3 of the proceeds to Operation Smile. If you are unfamiliar with Operation Smile, it is an organization of volunteers that repair childhood facial deformities while building public and private partnerships that advocate for sustainable healthcare systems for children and families.

Please stop back on July 7 for the Operation Smile Blog Hop. My post will be here.

Update: Find items created with Happy Everything on Pinterest by searching for #D1653HappyEverything.

Retiring Products

The list of retiring products has been released. You will find all retiring products in the special Retiring Items section on my OBA. Items on the retiring list are now available while supplies last. Once CTMH runs out of inventory of the retiring products, they will no longer be available to order. My OBA runs on "real time" inventory so if you see an item there it is available to order.

While Supplies Last

Finally, additional items have been added to the While Supplies Last section of my OBA. In addition to being available while CTMH has stock in the warehouse, most of the items are at a reduced price.

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

If you have any product or promotion questions, do not hesitate to email me. You will also find me on Facebook at Brenda's Paper Crafts.


  1. What an awesome layout, and your card is wonderful, I love it.

  2. Thanks, though I can only take credit for sharing the card and layout. Close To My Heart Corporate Artists created both items. :-)
