CTMH Announcements for September 2018

As the end of September 2018 approaches, I have a few updates for you.

September 2018 - National Stamping Month — Memories in the Making


The Memories in the Making was a very popular promotion. As we approach the last few days of September the stock of most of the Memories in the Making products have been depleted. Only the two exclusive stamp sets: Memories in the Making—Days (CC9182) and Memories in the Making—Months (CC9183) or the Memories in the Making Bundle (CC9184) remain available until September 30th.

September 2018 — Bring Back My Pack — More Magical


You will find more information on the Bring Back My Pack — More Magical promotions page; the layouts and cards that can be created with the Workshop Guide can be seen on my August 8th post. The Magical paper packet was updated with new colors and will be available until September 30th while supplies last. This popular paper collection is paired with a pack of cardstock in coordinating colors, an exclusive stamp set, and a workshop kit that will guide you in the creation of four two-page layouts and eight cards (four each of two designs).

September 2018You’ve Got Class

 
You’ve Got Class is another popular promotion that is ending on September 30th. The special paper packet, made up of selected papers from the Seasonal Expressions 2 paper collections, has sold out, but you can substitute other papers to make an equally beautiful album. The You've Got Class Coordinating Cardstock (CC8186), new and exclusive You've Got Class stamp set (CC8187) and School Kids Stamp + Thin Cuts (Z3373) are still available until the end of the month while supplies last. The items were designed for you to create an album of 13 single page layouts perfect for preserving photos and memorabilia from a child's school years from Kindergarten through High School graduation. Visit my August 10th post to see all of the layouts you can create by following the Workshop Instructions.

September 2018 Stamp of the MonthJust Treats


We have also reached the final days that the September SOTM Just Treats (S1809) is available. 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.

Tombow® Permanent Adhesive Refill

Finally, you may remember that on Monday, August 13, 2018 I told you that CTMH was currently out of stock of the Tombow® Permanent Adhesive Refill (Z3327) and the supplier was unable to provide more refills until mid-September. Additional stock of the Tombow® Adhesive Refills (Z3327) has been received, so this item is once again available for order. Effective immediately, with this item back in stock, the Tombow® Permanent Adhesive (Z3326) and the Duck® Easy Stick™ Adhesive Pack (Z3033) will return to their regular retail prices.

The Shop Now button will take you to my Consultant website where you can see the other products that were introduced, read full products descriptions and place orders.

Holiday Expressions - Focus on Australasian Stamp Sets

There are some stamp sets that are available, but are not pictured in Holiday Expressions. They are stamp sets that are most likely to be of interest to those in Australia and/or New Zealand, but could definitely be of interest to those who have family/friends there or who have been lucky enough to have traveled there. Close To My Heart was introduced to theses countries a few, maybe four, years ago, but those with family in or who have travel to Australia and/or New Zealand may like these stamp sets too. And who doesn't love Koalas?


Holiday Expressions may be viewed at my Consultant website or you can download a printable PDF (links open in a new tab). If you would like a list of items in HE, the Product Index (in PDF format) may be helpful; I use mine for a wish list and as a way to track purchases. CTMH also produced a PDF of Recipes which lists the products used (and Cricut® shapes, if applicable) to create the samples found in the book. Holiday Expressions is valid until December 31, 2018.

You can always search my Consultant Website for Australia and/or New Zealand to see what stamp sets are currently available. Many of the stamp sets below appear if you search for either country, but there are a couple of stamps that only found when searching for one or the other country. The stamp sets are also found when you search for International. Since we are featuring Australia and New Zealand, I also include information about the Cricut® Hello AU/NZ Digital Collection.

By the way, I recognize some of these stamps from Seasonal Expressions 2 and I thought they were meant to retire on August 31. If you really like some of these stamps, especially those that are not holiday-themed, please order sooner rather than later so you are not disappointed.

The Shop Now button will take you to my Consultant website where you can see the other products that were introduced, read full products descriptions and place orders.

Holiday Expressions - Focus on International Stamp Sets

There are some new International stamp sets featured in the Holiday Expressions Idea Book which was introduced on September 1. The International stamp sets, in French and Spanish, are shown on pages 114-115.


Holiday Expressions may be viewed at my Consultant website or you can download a printable PDF (links open in a new tab). If you would like a list of items in HE, the Product Index (in PDF format) may be helpful; I use mine for a wish list and as a way to track purchases. CTMH also produced a PDF of Recipes which lists the products used (and Cricut® shapes, if applicable) to create the samples found in the book. Holiday Expressions is valid until December 31, 2018.

You can always search my Consultant Website for Spanish and/or French to see what stamp sets are available at this time. The stamp sets also can be found when you search for International (this search will also display stamp sets that are Australasian-themed).

Feliz Navidad (B1620)
Coordinates with Oh What Fun collection
Saison de Noel (B1622)

In addition to the four International stamp sets shown on pages 114-115, when you search for Spanish, French or International you will also find some stamp sets from previous Idea Books. If any of those stamps strike your fancy, be sure to order them sooner rather than later as they are retired and I am not sure how much longer they will be available.

The Shop Now button will take you to my Consultant website where you can read the product descriptions and place an order.
