CTMH News for August 2015

August 2015 brings us a few surprises. There are a few items in the NEW 2015-2016 Annual Inspirations, valid from September 1, 2015 through August 31, 2016, that you may purchase starting August 1 (some with bonuses; see below). This will be a longish blog post; I hope that you will stick with me until the end for all of the exciting news.

The August 2015 Stamp of the Month is Framed

Framed (S1508) is an exclusive D-size set of 12 stamps that you can only purchase during the month of August 2015. 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 3½" (Y1002) and 2" x 3½" (Y1009).

Framed is compatible with the NEW Cricut® Artistry Collection (Z3167) available exclusively from Close To My Heart Independent Consultants (more on the cartridge below). Here is the Design Space File I created so I could quickly find the shapes that match the stamp set.

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

Usually I would say if you would like a list of the products used to create the above items, you will find the information in the Recipes on my OBA however since this stamp set is not shown in the CTMH Idea Books, I do not have a place to point you to. If I find the information I will update this post. Also check my Pinterest Board CTMH 2015 08 Aug SOTM Framed for additional ideas using this stamp set.

Please stop back tomorrow for the Framed Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. My blog post will be here.

During August you can purchase the latest organization products from Close To My Heart and get some perks thrown in. This month you can order the new Accessory Roll-Up (Z3121) and/or the new Marker Roll-Up (Z3120) and receive free products.

The Accessory Roll-Up (Z3121) has the description "Contains 16 clear plastic pockets with zippers to hold Base & Bling products, embellishments, or accessories.
