The August 2018 Stamp of the Month is For the Love of Crafting.

For the Love of Crafting (S1808) is an exclusive D-size set of 9 stamps that is only available for purchase during the month of August 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 3½" (Y1002), 2" x 2" (Y1003), 3" x 3" (Y1006), 2" x 3½" (Y1009).

CTMH Corporate Artists created cards using the For the Love of Crafting 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 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 For the Love of Crafting blog hop this month; you will find my post here tomorrow. Please visit my August SOTM (S1808) For the Love of Crafting Pinterest Board for additional ideas using the For the Love of Crafting stamp set.

Craft with Heart™ — CTMH Cut Above® Layout Kit Subscription

This is a new subscription from CTMH featuring Cut Above® layout kits. There will be three options to select from: monthly, 4-month (one delivery of four kits) and 12-month (three deliveries of four kits each). Twelve-month subscribers will also receive 30 free 4" x 6" prints from Persnickety Prints in every box. That is 90 free prints a year!

Visit the special Create with Craft with Heart™ website to order or head to my Consultant Website then select “Craft with Heart” under the Products tab at the top.

Please note, the 12-month subscription is now; the monthly and 4-month subscriptions will be available on September 1. You will be able to order the 12-month or 4-month subscription any time Seasonal Expressions is valid and receive all of the kits, but it is while supplies last. Subscriptions will be automatically renewed, but can be canceled at any time. Layout kits received with the Craft with Heart™ subscription cannot be returned or exchanged, but if you receive kits with damaged or missing pieces CTMH will correct or replace the kit within 90 days from the date of purchase. This is a FAQ at the bottom of the subscription page.

Each Craft with Heart™ box will include pre-printed base pages, paper pieces, die-cuts, and stickers to make two scrapbook layouts, plus three 12" x 12" Memory Protectors™ and a marketing postcard. Twelve-month subscribers will also receive information about redeeming 30 free 4" x 6" prints from Persnickety Prints in every box.
