September 2016 CTMH News

The September 2016 Stamp of the Month is Blessed Beyond Measure

Blessed Beyond Measure (S1609) is an exclusive D-size set of 19 stamps that is only available for purchase during the month of September 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 (and if you qualify for additional sets at $5 for each $50 you spend). Alternatively it is available at $17.95. Recommended CTMH My Acrylix® Blocks for this stamp set are: 1" x 1" (Y1000), 1" x 3½" (Y1002), 2" x 2" (Y1003) and 2" x 3½" (Y1009). The images outlined in red (pumpkin and leaves) coordinate with the Cricut® Artbooking cartridge (Z3169).

If you would like a list of the products used to create the above items, you will find the information in the Recipes for Holiday Expressions, a PDF file that lists the products used to make the samples in the Holiday Expressions so you may re-create projects at home. I am participating in a Blessed Beyond Measure blog hop this month; you will find my post tomorrow. Please visit my CTMH 2016 09 Sep SOTM Blessed Beyond Measure for additional ideas using this stamp set.

September 2016 - National Stamping Month: Create Kindness

September is National Stamping Month and CTMH has created a great Create Kindness card kit to celebrate. When I first saw this kit I wished I had it to give to the bus driver that looked out for me in a pouring down rain (one of the few we have had this summer).

The kit was designed to help create a little more kindness in the world and, I don't know about you, but I think we all need it. So often we hear complaints about something done wrong, but so rarely is something done right or above and beyond recognized.

The cards are quick and easy to make because the card bases are pre-printed. The Create Kindness card kit contains all of the supplies (except your favorite adhesive) needed to create 24 beautiful handmade cards. Watch Close To My Heart's blog, Instagram account and Facebook page in September to see what has been created with the card kit and the RAK it has inspired. Watch social media for the hashtag #createkindness.

When you purchase the kit for $46.95, the contents include:

Create Kindness Card Kit (CC1145)

24 – 3" × 3" pre-printed card bases with envelopes, 24 – Pre-cut 1 ¾" white circles, 8 – Exclusive M-size stamp sets (shown below), 1 – Archival Black Exclusive Inks™ mini stamp pad, 1 – 2" × 2" My Acrylix® block and 1 – My Acrylix® mini stamp organizer

If you could purchase all of the above items separately, except the Archival Black Exclusive Inks™ mini stamp pad–the mini size was created exclusively for this kit, they add up to $53.45.

Here's a better look at the stamps in the kit; they are also available for individual purchase at $2.95 each.

Create Kindness—Beautiful (CC1147)
Create Kindness—Enjoy (CC1148)
Create Kindness—Friend (CC1149)
Create Kindness—Hello (CC1150)
Create Kindness—Everything (CC1151)
Create Kindness—Love (CC1152)
Create Kindness—Smile (CC1153)
Create Kindness—Special (CC1154)

If you would like to purchase additional card bases, envelopes and circles for stamping on, they are available for $9.95.

Create Kindness Card Bases & Envelopes (CC1146)

The contents are 24 – 3" × 3" pre-printed card bases, envelopes, and circles.

I know I would love to be the recipient of a little kindness card. These cards would also make great little gift cards.
