During the month of April 2017, the new Cut Above™ layout kits are available at 50% off the retail price with no qualifying purchase required! The Cut Above™ layout kits make memory keeping incredibly easy because all you have to add are your photos and adhesive. There are two designs to choose from—Little One and Forever & Always. You can capture even more memories by using the coordinating pocket cards and pocket Memory Protectors included in the kit.

The kit includes simple assembly instructions to help you create a beautiful two-page layout in minutes. When you view a layout kit on my Online Business Address you will find a quick video showing the kit being assembled under the product description. There is no limit on the number of kits you may purchase, but please remember that shipping is based on the full retail price of the kit and the kits are available while supplies last.
May 2017 National Scrapbooking Month—Live Beautifully
This is a sampling of what CTMH is planning for National Scrapbooking Month. As I told you before, I will be purchasing a paper pack just to look at and admire. Please check my April 2017 CTMH News Blog Post for where to find (and how to watch without an account) a video preview on Facebook.
There is a stamp set, paper pack and Cut Above™ layout kits available during May 2017. I will post more soon.
Stamp Of the Month
I have been a Close To My Heart Independent Consultant since March 2012 and in February 2017 I learned something about purchasing the Stamp Of The Month (SOTM) from my Online Business Address (OBA) recently; it is possible to pay $17.95 for the SOTM even if you have a qualifying order total in your shopping cart. It turns out that in addition to having a qualifying purchase, the price you pay depends on how you add the SOTM to your shopping cart.
I wrote a blog post about this because I want to help prevent my readers from experiencing this.
As you know, there is a new Close To My Heart SOTM each month and that you can either purchase it for $17.95 or with a $50 qualifying order you can get the SOTM for only $5. You may also know that you can get one SOTM for $5 for each qualifying amount in your cart, that is, if you have $150 in qualifying items in your cart you can purchase three SOTM for $5 each, but I digress.
Before I go further, you may be asking what a qualifying order/amount is. Items that are purchased at a discount, e.g., clearance items, often do not count toward your qualifying purchase. It has been my experience that the purchase of monthly promotional products, e.g., purchase of the Welcome Home Wreath in January, do count toward the qualifying purchase. If they do not, I try to remember to add that information to the CTMH News I publish on the first of each month.
Now, how do you avoid paying $17.95 for the SOTM when you have a qualifying order total in your shopping cart? It is all in how you add the SOTM to your cart.
My suggestion is to wait to add the SOTM to your cart until you see a message on your screen that you qualify for the SOTM. When I added an item to my cart that made the shopping cart total over $50, a green shaded bar appeared on my screen with "Congratulations! You qualify for Stamp of the Month."
When I clicked on the link in "Congratulations! You qualify for Stamp of the Month", I was taken to my Shopping Cart and the Promotional Items I qualify for are shown near the bottom of the cart in a green shaded area:
Once I clicked the Add To Cart button to the right of the item number and name in the Promotional Items area of my shopping cart, I saw a message that the item was added to my cart and the item is now listed with the other items I placed in my cart.
If my order total qualified me to purchase additional SOTM stamp sets for $5 or there were other promotional items I qualified for, I would still see the green shaded Promotional Items area in my Shopping Cart. If this was a month where a qualifying purchase allowed me to to add something else to my cart, for free or at at discounted price, I would see those items in the Promotional Items area too.
I hope this information helps you to more easily shop my Online Business Address and save money when Close To My Heart is offering a Stamp Of The Month or other promotional item that you would like to purchase.
