March 2016 CTMH News

The CTMH specials for the month of March 2016 are...

The March 2016 Stamp of the Month is Sunshine Birdies

Sunshine Birdies (S1603) is an exclusive D-size set of 11 stamps that is only available for purchase during the month of March 2016. 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 it is available at $17.95. Recommended CTMH My Acrylix® Blocks for this stamp set are: 2" x 2" (Y1003) and 2" x 3½" (Y1009).

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

If you would like a list of the products used to create the above items, you will find the information in the Recipes for Seasonal Expressions 1, a PDF file that lists the products used to make the samples in the Seasonal Expressions 1 so you may re-create projects at home. I am participating in a Sunshine Birdies blog hop this month; you will find my post tomorrow. Please visit my Pinterest Board CTMH 2016 03 Mar SOTM Sunshine Birdies for additional ideas using this stamp set.

March 2016 brings us Stampaganza!

The wait is over! It's Stampaganza 2016!!! From March 1 at 9am to March 31, 2016 at 11:59pm MDT when you buy any two My Acrylix® stamp sets (M-, A-, B-, C-, D-, or E-size) at full retail price you can get a third stamp set of equal or lesser value FREE!

Here is a chart to help you determine which set you will receive for free.

Please keep in mind that you may qualify for more than one free stamp set in a single order, but I found during the last Stampaganza that it was always the two lower-priced sets you receive for free. That is, if you order three E-size stamp sets and three M-size stamp sets, two of the M-size stamp sets will be free. In this case to get the best bang for your dollar, you may be better off placing two orders and using Smart Post to save on shipping. Also please note that while sales tax is not charged on the free item, shipping/handling is calculated based on the full retail price of all items, including free items.

New Policy - My Acrylix® Stamp Availability

As I mentioned last week, there is a new policy regarding the availability of My Acrylix® Stamps. Effective immediately stamp sets will only be available when they are pictured in a current Idea Book (with a few exceptions). This means stamp sets featured in Seasonal Expressions 1 will be retired at the end of that idea book on April 30, 2016. Stamp sets featured in Annual Inspirations 2015–2016 and any other stamp sets that are currently available but are not pictured in any active idea books will be retired on July 31, 2016 and this includes Cricut® compatible stamps that used to be available indefinitely. The exceptions are the States & Provinces stamp sets, the Australia & New Zealand stamp sets, and a handful of other stamp sets that will be carrying forward to a future idea book.

I will be posting a complete list of stamp sets being retired, and another list that shows the stamp sets that will continue to be available after August 1 as soon as they are make available from the Corporate Office.
