Toasts to Cling, Songs to Sing, Happy New Year, 2014!!!!

   Annnddddd.....just like that we have entered a new year! Wow! I hope everyone's holidays have been wonderful! I cannot help but feel so overwhelmed by the happiness and blessings that I feel this time of year! It is always so wonderful to reflect on an entire year's worth of amazing adventures, and I am glad I get to share new adventures with you in 2014!

   I know you cannot wait to hear all the wonderful promotions and new products releasing this month! It's an exciting month for CTMH fans, and an amazing kick start to the new year!

   The highly anticipated Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book is almost upon us! I was able to get a sneak peek at the book after Christmas, and, let me tell you, it does not disappoint! My wish list is 3 pages long, and I'm not through the whole book yet! I cannot wait for you all to get your hands on one of these amazing Idea Books!

   If you are on my Idea Book & Catalog mailing list, you will be receiving your copy within the next couple weeks! However, you will not be able to order from the new Idea Book until it goes completely live on February 1st! This also means that there is a Candid Captures Preview Party in the near future!

   The Preview Party will be January 22nd at my house in Hastings, MN from 12-2pm and again from 6-8pm (weather permitting). In case of inclement weather, the Preview Party will be re-scheduled for another day within the last two weeks of January (please check the Facebook page and this blog for updates on weather announcements). This special workshop will feature a preview of CTMH's Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book & Catalog which is not set to release to the public until February 1st! Come see it before you can buy it during this FREE event! We will be assembling a FREE make-n-take project using the new supplies and products, and I will be showcasing tons of the new product lines! Anyone that attends will also have a chance to be in the Preview Party Giveaway! Please RSVP for this special workshop by Contacting Me through my blog or on my Facebook page by January 13th ! If anyone is interested in Skyping about the Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book, please contact me through this blog, email, phone, or Facebook to set up a date and time!

   January also brings new promotions and specials to take advantage of as well! First is the January SOTM, Cross-Stich Wishes. This cute set includes images that look hand-stiched and sewn! It's the perfect set of stamps to give your cards and projects that element of "homemade" and "homespun"! These images would also work well on tags attached to homemade gifts! Here are a couple preview pictures of this cute stamp set:

   Cross-Stitch Wishes can be purchased for $17.95 or, with a qualifying order of $50 or more, you can get this cute set for only $5!

   That's not it, though! January is also National Papercrafting Month, and to celebrate CTMH is offering a special card kit promotion called "Cloud 9" for only $15 when you place an order of only $35 or more! In this kit you will be able to make 10 adorable cards (2 each of 5 designs) with funky, trendy messages from an exclusive stamp set, teal shimmer trim details, Gold Polka-dot Washi Tape accents, and fun and trendy triangle metal embellishments! This kit has a retail value of $46! So that means you can get this WHOLE kit for ~70% off the retail value! That's a steal! Plus when you qualify and purchase the Cloud 9 Cardmaking Kit, you then will automatically be qualified for the January SOTM for only $5 more! It's perfect!

   New Consultants who enroll in January will receive a FREE Cloud Nine Cardmaking Kit when they have submitted total personal sales of $300 or more within their first three months as a consultant! Add that to the Consultant Kit packed with tons of great goodies at a steeply discounted price of only $99, and January becomes the perfect time to join as a consultant!

    The last promotion to take advantage of this month is Candid Captures' Album Value Pack! Now is the perfect time to use some of that Christmas cash to stock up on supplies for your 2014 albums! This value pack comes with everything you  need to get started documenting your memories all year long! To see a complete list of supplies and to get more details on this discounted value pack, visit the Promotions and Specials section of the blog!

   Two more quick announcements to share with you today before the new year is officially rung in!

   Last exciting detail of the day (I told you 2014 was going to be an exciting year)!!! With the beginning of the month comes the beginning of a new FREEBIE download from CTMH's Rediscover series! This month CTMH's theme is "Rediscover YOU", and the download features journal cards to use as prompts on your scrapbook pages or in coordination with with the Project Life Scrapbooking Program! You can download these FREE, printable journal cards on my online shopping site, Candid Captures Shop! Make sure you get yours downloaded before it expires at the end of the month, though!
