January 2018 CTMH News

Happy New Year! The year 2017 went by in a flash; I cannot believe I am writing about the January SOTM and specials. With the death of my father 2017 was one of the hardest years of my life so I am not sad to see it behind us. I have hope that 2018 will be a much better year. I wish for the best for you and yours in 2018.

The January 2018 Stamp of the Month is Bloom & Grow

Bloom & Grow (S1801) is an exclusive D-size set of 15 stamps that is only available for purchase during the month of January 2018. 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 1" (Y1000), 2" x 2" (Y1003) 2" x 3½" (Y1009) and 4" x 5" (Y1012).

CTMH Corporate Artists created a bag topper and card using the Bloom & Grow 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, a PDF file (which will be posted soon) 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 Bloom & Grow blog hop this month; you will find my post here tomorrow. Please visit my CTMH 2018 01 Jan SOTM Bloom & Grow for additional ideas using the Bloom & Grow stamp set.

Seasonal Expressions 1 2018

This is the first month the Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book. This idea book is valid from January 1 until April 30, 2018. The book can be viewed on the Idea Books page of my Consultant Website or you can download a PDF of the book here. I am posting a tour of Seasonal Expressions 1 tomorrow.

I have a couple of corrections to share if you are viewing the printed Seasonal Expressions 1 book:
  • Thin Cuts—Block Numbers (Z4159) - page 68 - there are 18 dies; the exclamation, the question mark, the ampersand and the comma are in the Thin Cuts—Block Alphabet (Z3386) set, but their images were accidentally included with the numbers set; in addition, there is a small square included with the set that is not pictured
  • Designer Travel Ink Case (Z6003) - page 71 - this case holds 10 stamp pads
If there are additional corrections, I will add them to my CTMH Idea Books page.
