August 2017 CTMH News

Hello! It is almost time for students to return to college. And soon primary and secondary students in New York State will be shopping for school supplies in anticipation of the first day of school in early September. I am betting the younger students are excited, but I am guessing that the older students might not be as eager.

The August 2017 Stamp of the Month is School Year

School Year (S1708) is an exclusive D-size set of 9 stamps that is only available for purchase during the month of August 2017. 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 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 3½" (Y1002), 2" x 2" (Y1003) and 3" x 3" (Y1006).

CTMH Corporate Artists created this two-page Then & Now layout using the School Year stamp set.

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 2, a PDF file that lists the products used to make the samples in the Seasonal Expressions 2 so you may re-create projects at home. I am participating in a School Year blog hop this month; you will find my post here tomorrow. Please visit my CTMH 2017 08 Aug SOTM School Year Pinterest Board for additional ideas using the School Year stamp set.

August 2017 brings us three specials!

Online Warehouse Sale

Every Tuesday during August a selection of retired CTMH products and product bundles will be posted on my Consultant Website (look under the Promotions tab found in the green bar near the top of the page). You will need to hurry because the products are while supplies last during the week they are launched. The best part? Shipping will only be charged on the price you pay; usually shipping is calculated on the full retail price the products.

Jump for Joy

When you host a Gathering in August that reaches the 3rd level of Hostess Rewards (or higher), your rewards will jump to the next level. This means that you get extra free product and could possibly get an extra 50%-off item. This is the Hostess Rewards Chart for August 2017:

Qualifying gatherings need to be held August 1st to August 31st. No shipping and handling will be calculated on Hostess Rewards items; shipping and handling will be assessed on Hostess Rewards overages (if applicable).

Sign-up Special—Rewards Your Way

When you sign up to be a Consultant in August and submit $300 in commissionable sales by September 30, you can earn additional rewards. When you sign up as a new Consultant you already get:
  • A New Consultant Kit with essential supplies for only $75
  • $50 in Select Product Credit to spend on additional supplies
