July 2019 CTMH News

Happy Independence Day just a few days early. I hope you have a wonderful celebration.

The July 2019 Stamp of the Month is Bear Hugs

Bear Hugs (S1907) - CTMH SOTM July 2019

Bear Hugs (S1907) is an exclusive D-size set of 17 stamps that is only available for purchase during the month of July 2019. 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 $18.95. Recommended CTMH My Acrylix® Blocks for this stamp set are: 1" × 1" (Y1000), 1" × 3½" (Y1002), 2" × 2" (Y1003), 2" × 3½" (Y1009) and 5" × 6" (Y1015).

CTMH Corporate Artists created cards and a tag using the Bear Hugs 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 Bear Hugs blog hop this month; you will find my post here tomorrow. Please visit my July SOTM (S1907) Bear Hugs Pinterest Board for additional ideas using the Bear Hugs stamp set.

Bring Back My Pack—Seaside

During July and August, CTMH is bringing back the Seaside paper suite for a limited time. I do not have any updated photos yet, so let me remind you of the original version of Seaside. It was introduced in Annual Inspirations 2014-2015 which was valid from August 1, 2014 through August 31, 2015. Back then the coordinating colors were Colonial White, Desert Sand, Glacier, Hollyhock, Lagoon, Pear and Sorbet.

The updated Seaside siute will include a new, slimmed-down paper packet, with 6 updated Seaside paper sheets—2 each of 3 different designs, a coordinating cardstock pack, the My Acrylix® Seaside Greetings stamp set, a full Seaside sticker sheet, and a Seaside Workshop Kit. Seaside will be available from July 1 to August 31, while supplies last.

You will save 25% when you buy the products together in the workshop kit, which includes materials for creating one 2-page layout, two single pages, three standard-size cards, and three 3" x 3" cards. You can also choose a workshop kit that does not include the stamp set.

If you sign up to become a Consultant in July you can get a FREE Seaside paper packet. You can also get a FREE Seaside paper packet by hosting a party in July that reaches at least the third level of Hostess Rewards! These offers are only available for the month of July, while supplies last.

Later today I hope to be able to share a photo of the updated paper packet, coordinating cardstock, etc. That is if I am not frantically trying to finish my card for the SOTM blog hop. (((insert grin))))

Seasonal Expressions 2

Seasonal Expressions 2 (2019)
It's so hard to believe that the Seasonal Expressions 2 has already been valid for two months–that means it is only valid for two more months: July and August and many of the items in it will be retiring. There are some items that have become back-ordered and unfortunately some that will not be re-stocked. Please watch my CTMH Idea Book page for corrections, unavailable items and, when the time comes, a list of retiring items.

The details of all CTMH promotions can also be found on my Consultant Website. The Shop Now button will also take you there.

Do not hesitate to email me if you have any product or promotion questions. You will also find me on Facebook at Brenda's Paper Crafts. Thank you for stopping by today.
