CTMH Products & Promotions Retiring or Expiring on Dec 31

For those of us on the East Coast there are only about 34 hours remaining in 2018, and there are  about 36 hours left to order any of the many CTMH specials ending and products retiring at the end of 2018.

Holiday Expressions 2018

The Holiday Expressions 2018 Idea Book will no longer be valid after 11:59pm Mountain time (where CTMH is headquartered) on Monday, December 31st.

Earlier this month I posted the retiring items list. The list can be downloaded as a PDF here or an Excel file here. If you would like see the items visually, the stamps can be seen here and all other retiring items here.

A few products were so popular that they have become unavailable:

I expect this list will grow as we get closer to the New Year. For the most up-to-date stock information, look for a product on my Consultant Website. "Out of Stock" will show with the photo if there is no more inventory; "Low Quantity" when there is only a few left.

There are several CTMH Specials that are expiring at 11:59pm Mountain time on Monday, December 31st. If you order (or previously ordered) any of the specials, please be sure to download the corresponding Workshop Guide before the clocks and calendars change to 2019 in the Mountain Time Zone because all of the promotions pages will disappear from my Consultant Website.

Story Starter Special

Details and available options are on my Consultant Website and I wrote about it on this blog earlier this month. Stacy Julian wrote about creating a Year in Review album on the CTMH Blog recently.

Days of December

Details about the Workshop and the additional supplies you may need to complete the project as shown in the Workshop Instructions are on my Consultant Website. This special was introduced on November 1 and I shared information on my blog in early November.

Advent Calendar

More information about the Advent Calendar bundle and additional supplies needed to complete this project are on my Consultant Website. I do have to warn you that the Workshop Instructions list the Cricut® Season of Joy Digital Collection (Z3296), which can only be used with Cricut Design Space and either the Explore or Maker machines. Seasons of Joy also has "Low Quantity" shown with the photo so if you want to create this as shown, please order soon.

Unfortunately I do not have photos, but I have heard that some consultants created this workshop with the Artiste cartridge (retired) similar to the Workshops on the Go® Advent Calendar Kit (G1044) featured in the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book (if you do not remember this kit, see the second part of this video for a refresher). I have not tried this, but I believe with a few test cuts you could create the newer Advent Calendar pictured above with the following shapes from Artiste:
  • For the outer boxes, you could use just the bottom of the 3D Object on page 39 of the handbook (page 9 of the Assembly Instructions).
  • For the inner boxes, you could use the 3D Object on page 80 of the handbook (page 64 of the Assembly booklet).
  • For the embellishments, you could use Thin Cuts or cuts from one or more Cricut cartridges. Or you could use complements.
Christmas Blessings

Christmas Blessings was introduced on October 15 and I wrote about it here on the blog then. Workshop Kit contents and other items needed to complete the cards as shown using the Workshop Instructions are on my Consultant Website. The Workshop Instructions list cuts from the Cricut® Season of Joy Digital Collection (Z3296), which can only be used with Cricut Design Space and either the Explore or Maker machines and as I mentioned earlier, this item has a low quantity. I have read about suitable Cricut cut substitutions on other CTMH cartridges.

To celebrate the 15 Year Anniversary of CTMH in Canada, two workshops were released on October 20th:

The Great Outdoors

The Great Outdoors Workshop Kit and Workshop Guide provide the supplies and instructions to create two two-page layouts and four cards. Visit my Consultant Website for a list of additional items if you choose the create the items as shown in the Guide. Each of the layouts and cards can be seen on my blog.

True North

The True North Workshop Kit and Workshop Guide provide the supplies and instructions to create two two-page layouts, a single page and four cards. Be sure to visit my Consultant Website for a list of additional supplies needed to complete the projects as shown. The layouts and cards can be seen on my blog.

Hello Pumpkin Deluxe Workshop

The Hello Pumpkin Deluxe Workshop was so popular that both options, with or without the Stamp and Thin Cuts, sold out. The Workshop is still listed on my Consultant Website in case purchasers still need to download the Workshop Guide or need to purchase any of the additional products suggested to re-create the two single pages or two two-page layouts (the projects created with the Workshop Guide can be seen on my blog where you will also find a list of kit contents in case you would like to purchase the items individually; as of this moment, there are a few Hello Pumpkin Paper Packet (X7236B) and Boutique Complements (X7235C) left).

Important Things

Unfortunately the Important Things Workshop was also so popular that the Bundle has sold out. Again, there is still a page on my Consultant Website for Important Things so you may download the Workshop Guide and see the additional items you need to complete the project shown in the Guide. I have photos of all of the pages you will create on my blog.

By getting a little out of your comfort zone and making a few substitutions, you could use the Guide and some different products to make a similar album. You might recall CTMH had The Important Thing bundle in the Spring of 2018. You can still find a few photos of what you could create with that Workshop Guide on my blog (the entire book is pictured in the PDF). You could pull together the things you like the most about each workshop with new papers and/or different colors to make your own unique Important Things album.

Stamp of the Month Candy Cane Alphabet

The end of the month beings the end of the current SOTM. If you did not get a chance to complete the December's SOTM Blog Hop there still is time. You can start at my project and follow the links until you return back to my page. The alphabet was used very creatively by the bloggers on this hop.

That is it for promotions that are ending and products that are retiring.

While you are visiting my Consultant Website, do not forget about the Boxing Week Sale (the last day is December 31st), the Heart Happy Special or the Heart Happy Album; both Heart Happy options are available through February 28, 2019 while supplies last.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and encouragement during 2018. I really appreciate you.
