Close to My Heart Updates

   Happy Wednesday, everyone! I have been busy this week preparing for the Product Party on Sunday, September 15th! I cannot wait to share these awesome projects and ideas with you all! It should be a ton of fun! I still have seats available if you want to stop in! This is FREE event, so definitely come on in and learn about some awesome products!

   I also updated the blog tabs to keep information more accessible. The "Events Calendars" tab now contains all the upcoming event information, times, costs (if any), and descriptions. The "Sneaks Peeks" tab is exactly what it means: previews of projects, upcoming deals, specials, CTMH promotions, projects, etc. Consider it creative eye candy! I will also be updating or adding another tab to feature CTMH videos and tutorials! So look for that coming very soon!

"Pajama Party" is a free online event that you can participate in to make their featured project, win great prizes, learn about upcoming classes at Big Pictures Classes, and to get creative inspiration from all the talented ladies over at Big Picture Classes! In the past, Close to My Heart as been the main sponsor for "Pajama Party". This month the sponsor is Studio Calico, but it's still worth mentioning and registering for! It's coming up in a couple weeks, and they announced it will be a longer event this month (90 minutes instead of 60 minutes!!!). They are a lot of fun, and what's to lose? You could win FREE products!!! Here's the link to the Big Picture Classes Pajama Party site. I hope you check it out! It's always a lot of fun!

   Have you been on Candid Captures Online Shopping site lately? If not, you might want to! CTMH just added some new "While Supplies Last" items! These are clearance items that will no longer be offered in the Idea Books. Many of the items are deeply discounted, but once they sell out that's it! There are albums, paper packs, embellishments, home decor items, etc. Check out some of these items just added! You may purchase any of these items online to be shipped to your home at Candid Captures Online Shop. You may also contact me to purchase any of these items as well! Whatever works best for you!

Time to Create!

    It has been a long time since I created something for myself! I have been working on projects and gifts for other people for over a year! I think my wedding invitations, decor, and honeymoon book were probably the last few things I did for myself, and really....that doesn't count! That was over a year ago! Can you believe that? My 1 year anniversary is this weekend! Time definitely flies!

   With all these new Close to My Heart products from the Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book, I am feeling the itch to create! So that is exactly what I'm going to do; between today and tomorrow, I am going to work on fun projects for me! Of course, some of them I will be using as demonstration pieces at upcoming events, but they are still "me" projects, and I'm excited about it!

   One of the stamp sets I CANNOT wait to play with is one of the new hostess rewards stamp sets called "The Party Is On". It is so stinkin cute! I LOVE the font on it! Here's the full stamp set:

   This is only available to the hostess of a gathering or party if they reach $150 or more in total sales! The stamp set is only $8 for the hostess, too, so it's a steal!

   Did you know you can get hostess rewards with your own order? If you place an order of $150 or more on your own, you can still qualify for FREE Hostess Rewards!!!! Contact me today to find out how and to place your order! ($150-$249 in sales receives $25 in free product credit. Plus, in September, you still qualify for Stamp-of-the-Month, National Stamping Month Trio Stamp set promotion, and for Candid Captures "Celebrate Fall" promotions! can't beat it!)

Okay....I have to go play with paper! I'm all excited and feeling inspired to make pretty things now! I hope this inspired you as well! Until next time:

Here's to life, love, and creativity!

P.S. Check back on the blog tomorrow for some exciting news and an inside sneak peek at an upcoming special or two!!!!
