April 2020 CTMH News

Hello! Happy April Fools. I bet with all of our social distancing it was harder for someone to play a trick on you. Also, Happy Spring. I hope that you and your family are staying healthy and are finding fun ways to stay busy during this time of social distancing. I have to admit that wish I had a lot of time on my hands to be creative, but I am working from home. The only extra time I have is what I save from commuting. Unfortunately that doesn't add up to a lot of extra crafty time.

April 2020 Stamp Of The Month O-fish-ally Awesome

O-fish-ally Awesome (S2004) - CTMH SOTM April 2020
O-fish-ally Awesome (S2004) is an exclusive D-size set of 37 stamps that is only available for purchase during the month of April 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 5" × 6" (Y1015).

If you would like a list of the products used to create the above cards, you will find the information in the Recipes, a PDF file that lists the products used to make the samples in the March–April 2020 Catalog. I am participating in a O-fish-ally Awesome blog hop this month; you will find my post here tomorrow.

Let’s Stay Home

Let's Stay Home (CC3212) - set of 28
Last week CTMH introduced Let’s Stay Home. It is a fun D-size stamp set designed to make it easier to create cards, scrapbook pages, and other crafts about what we are all going through right now with social distancing and a focus on staying home.
Be sure to check out this video (you do not need to have a Facebook account to view it) on the CTMH Facebook Page to get a better look at all of the stamps and to see a fantastic page. Just substitute the photo and alter the journaling a bit and it could be my experience the past week or two.

These Are My People

These Are My People
The These Are My People collection released last month (I introduced it in this post), continues through the end of April while supplies last. My purchase just arrived today and it is gorgeous. I will be participating in a These Are My People blog hop on April 10.

Easter Traditions

Easter Traditions
Easter Traditions was announced in mid-March; I shared details on this post. You can choose the adorable Easter bunnies, the Easter eggs that spell out "Easter" or you can purchase a bundled that includes one of each. Each banner comes with a digital art file to make it easy for you to embellish the shapes using papers of your choice.
March–April 2020 Catalog

cover March–April 2020 Catalog
The March–April catalog is in its final month. I love the anique feel of Yesterday & Today and those who love to visit the beach or go boating will love Seas the Day. You can view this catalog online or download a PDF to view anytime you have your device, but no Internet.

Stay safe during this unique time in our history. I hope as we approach the end of April that the most difficult part of COVID-19 will be in our past, but I fear that may be the optimist in me. I wish you and your family good health and many creative hours ahead.
