Starting a New Chapter

Beginning May 1, 2024 I am now an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I am still trying to learn all of the terminology and policies, so I am a bit nervous, but also excited.

When we learned that former Close To My Heart Makers would have the opportunity to become demonstrators with Stampin' Up! someone suggested that we purchase a few products so we could become familiar with them. I was lucky enough to choose stamp sets that are making an encore! appearance in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog May 2024–April 2025.

To create this card I used the Thoughtful Expressions Stamp Set (162815) and Thoughtful Expressions Dies (162821). I cut the floral spray and hummingbird from White Daisy and the leaf dies from Evergreen (from my CTMH stash). I colored with Colorista by Spectrum Noir™ pencils. I used the Thoughtful Expressions Dies to cut labels from Bubble Bath and Soft Sea Foam from the Subtles 12" × 12" Cardstock Assortment (161714). I used second generation stamping with Pear Stamp Pad (from my CTMH stash) to create a background paper. I used a combination of liquid glue, flat adhesive and foam tape to assemble the card. I have not decided the occasion for sending the card, so I have not selected a sentiment yet.

As I hinted at earlier, a new catalog with new products are available from Stampin' Up! on May 1. If you were a VIP Customer with Close To My Heart, you will receive a free Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog May 2024–April 2025 when you place an order.

In addition, there is a May 2024 Product Release of Exclusive CTMH™ Products.

The collection for May 2024 is Enjoy the Ride and the featured colors are Rosy, Pumpkin, Honey Butter, Limeade, Jade, Harbour, Bluebird and French Vanilla. There is a paper packet, enamel dots, paper with sticker sheet, coordinating two-tone cardstock, cardmaking and scrapbooking stamp sets with Thin Cuts, and scrapbooking and cardmaking workshops. In addition there is a Baseline Alphabet Thin Cuts and cardstock and stamp pads in the featured colors. All items are very limited and are likely to sell out quickly, so be sure to shop early. This brochure/flyer (in PDF format) provides all of the product details. 

The products are only available to CTMH Makers and Customers who had an email address "on file" with CTMH. The products will be available at 12:01am MDT on May 1; you will find the items on the Stampin’ Up! website. Go to menu > Shop Products > CTMH™ Product. Please also go to Find a Demonstrator (in the upper left) and search for my name.

I hope you will join me on this new creative journey. Until next time.
