January 2020 CTMH News

I hope you had a fabulous December holiday season. Unfortunately I was ill throughout the season. My family was kind enough to have Christmas dinner on the 28th, but I continue to feel crummy as I write this. I am beginning to wonder if it is time to visit the physician. I truly hope you and your family are able to avoid this bug.

January 2020 brings us a beautiful Stamp Of The Month: Everyday Magic.

Everyday Magic (S2001) - CTMH SOTM January 2020
Everyday Magic (S2001) is an exclusive D-size set of 10 stamps that is only available for purchase during the month of January 2020. 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) and 2" × 3½" (Y1009).

CTMH Corporate Artists created this wonderful two-page layout using the Everyday Magic stamp set.

If you would like a list of the products used to create the above layout, you will find the information in the Recipes, a PDF file that lists the products used to make the samples in the January/February 2020 Idea Book. I am participating in a Everyday Magic blog hop this month; you will find my post here tomorrow. Please visit my January SOTM (S2001) Everyday Magic Pinterest Board for other examples of how the Everyday Magic stamp set was used.
