September/October 2019 Idea Book & Catalog Ending October 31

Gosh. The past two months have flown. The September/October 2019 Idea Book & Catalog is only valid for 48 more hours – it expires on October 31, 2019 at 11:59pm MDT (that's 1:59am EDT on November 1).

September/October 2019 Idea Book & Catalog
With the change to six 2-month catalogs, Close To My Heart will not be posting a retiring list at the end of each book. Rather any items that remain in stock will be moved to the Online Only area of my Consultant Website in the days after the book expires.

I previously guided you though the Hostess Rewards, those listed in the Core Products book continue to be available, but the three stamp sets in the September/October book will not be available after October 31 – if you would like to place an order large enough for HR, please reach me via the contact form. So we have enough time to work out the details and get the order placed before the end of October, please send me a message by 7pm on the 31st and include your phone number.

I also told you about the new colors from CTMH. The new colors were introduced at Convention in July. The inks and cardstock will still be available after October 31, however the papers in S/O 2019, Every Little Thing and Hawthorn, incorporated several of the new colors.

Earlier in the catalog cycle I didn't get a chance to tell you about the stamps, Thin Cuts and embossing folder in the September/October 2019 book, those that were not pictured with or near the paper collections:

I don't know about you, and maybe it is because autumn is one of my favorite seasons, but there are so many products in the September/October book that I thought were beautiful.

Also ending on October 31st is the Spooktacular Special.

The Spooktacular details are on my Consultant Website here; I also blogged about the special on September 9th.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you  have any questions. Have a great day and thank you for visiting.

The sale will begin at 5:00 pm EDT on Friday, October 25, and will end at 4:59 pm EDT on Saturday, October 26! As with previous Flash Sales, there are a few things to be aware of:
  • Sale prices are only available on orders placed on my Consultant website.
  • The sale features a mix of current and retired products. There is a limited number of items set aside for the sale. It is possible that CTMH will sell though several of the items in the sale. Once that happens, those items will no longer be available, so shop early!
  • Any current items that sell out during the sale will return to availability at normal price once the sale has ended.
  • All Flash Sale items count towards Stamp of the Month qualification.
  • Shipping and handling is based on the full retail value of the sale items.

Days of December

December can be a very hectic time of year. Why not create your holiday album before the month begins? When you have your album finished by the start of December you can relax a bit as you only have to print your photos and add them to your album. You can even pick outfits and backgrounds to coordinate with your completed pages.

Days of December
When you purchase the Days of December Workshop Kit, download the Workshop Guide and follow the instructions, you will create the following pages:
