October 2020 CTMH News

Happy October. I know I've said it before, but wow, 2020 is flying by. Even working from home it feels like time is moving faster than ever. The winds of change are upon us with cooler temperatures and changing leaves. Not only are the seasons changing, but there are some big (and great) changes at Close To My Heart too–see below.

In case you missed the notice on the right side of this page, Close To My Heart is having an extended downtime today, October 1st, to implement several changes. My shopping site is expected to be available again at 10am EDT.

October 2020 Stamp Of The Month With All My Love

With All My Love - CTMH SOTM October 2020
With All My Love (S2010)
available October 2020

With All My Love (S2010) is an exclusive D-size set of 16 stamps that is only available for purchase during the month of October 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 for $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).

The Art Department at Close To My Heart created two cards using the With All My Love stamp set.

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 September–October 2020 Catalog. I am participating in a With All My Love blog hop this month; you will find my post here tomorrow. Please visit my September SOTM (S2009) With All My Love Pinterest Board for other ideas to use the With All My Love stamp set.

The Close To My Heart special for October is a calendar kit, Moments like These. This special includes a Cut Above® Layout Kit and a Base Calendar to create a beautiful 2021 12-month calendar. There is also a My Acrylix® Moments like These stamp set to personalize your calendar pages. Click on any of the flyer pages below for more information or download the three page flyer here.

CTMH Facebook Live Events

It is a work-in-progress, but I created a page for CTMH Facebook Live Crafting Events. As a get a chance I will be moving past events to the bottom of the page with links to the videos on Facebook.

Changes Coming to CTMH

Close To My Heart is also introducing some changes. You will still be able to purchase the same great products you are used to and the Core Products catalog is still valid until August 31, 2021 (and the September–October 2020 catalog is valid through the end of October). My title is no longer "Independent Consultant". It is now "Maker".

However the biggest change that you will see is there is now a VIP Customer Program. Here's a flyer about the VIP Customer Program (click on the image for a better view or download a PDF of the flyer here).

A couple of notes about the program. You can save your credit with a larger purchase in mind;  you can even carry your credit over to your second (or more) VIP membership year, as long as you renew your VIP membership within 30 days of its expiration date. Memberships automatically renew and you will receive a reminder 30 days prior to renewal, just in case you need to update your payment information. You spend your credits when placing an order–you will have the option to use them on the shopping cart page.

There are a few limitations what you can use the credits on. The limitations are: Craft with Heart™ Subscriptions, Annual VIP Customer Renewals, purchases, Maker Enrollment, discounted products (including specials and clearance items), and Operation Smile™ donations, tax, or shipping.

The introductory offer, sign up before December 31, 2020 and receive $25 in VIP Spending Credit, rather than the usual $15, works out to be only $10 for an annual membership. You would only have to spend $70 during the next year to earn the cost of your membership back (and this calculation does not factor in the current SOTM for FREE if you spend $50 in one order).

If you have any questions about the VIP Customer Program, please do not hesitate to contact me via the Contact Form to the right.

The September–October 2020 catalog continues to be valid through the end of October. You can view this catalog online or download a PDF to view anytime you have your device, but no Internet.

Have a fabulous October. I hope the fall foliage is as beautiful where you are as it appears it will be here.
