Who You Gonna Call???

   Stashbusters!! I couldn't help myself! The song has been stuck in my head ever since I started working on this April Challenge! That's right....I have a brand new contest for you all this month! So without further ado.....

   The hubby and I are getting ready to remodel our office/craft room at our house this Spring (if Spring ever shows its face). This has forced me to go through all my stuff and dig through some of my old scrapbooking supplies! Do you ever go through your supplies and forget about all the pretty papers you "saved" or all the fun embellishments you forgot you had on hand? Well now's the time to dig deep into that stash and use up those old supplies! Introducing Candid Captures' first ever "Stashbusters" challenge!

     During the month of April, we will be digging deep into your stash to pull out those old, forgotten supplies to create some awesome projects! This is a fun challenge to get us all thinking outside the box and using up those old supplies that are taking up space! You can earn tickets toward prizes by signing up to participate, completing the time minimums each week, emailing me with pictures of your progress, and getting creative! If you want to participate, you must RSVP to me by April 6th at the latest! You can divide your time up over the week or work all in one sitting. These projects are for you, so create what you love: cards, home décor, scrapbook pages, or something else all together! Just have fun! This is supposed to get us creating all month long with the supplies we have! 

    A complete list of the challenges and prizes will be emailed to everyone on my mailing list because it would be too long to include all the details on here! If you are not on my mailing list but would like to participate, contact me with your name and email address, and I will send you my Stashbusters Challenge email right away! There will be prizes for everyone that participates, but you need to sign up ahead of time in order to qualify! So come play along with me and become a "Stashbuster"!
    A new month also means new announcements of CTMH specials and promotions! Make sure and read all the way through this post, though......there's a HUGE announcement toward the end of this post! So be patient and scroll on, my friends!

    Let's start with the April SOTM: Balloon Talk! I love the look of this set! There's so many possibilities on how to use all these cute phrases and word bubbles! There are 24 total images on this stamp set, so it's one of the bigger SOTM sets that we've had in a long time! I'm looking forward to getting this stamp set in my hands ASAP! You can add this adorable stamp set to your stash for $17.95 (retail) or for only $5 with a qualifying purchase of $50 or more! Check out the cute images and some of the CTMH artwork using this set:

    The next special I have to share with you today is April's Paper Pack-of-the-month (POTM)! This month I am featuring Ariana in all of my workshops, layouts, and crops! I love this paper pack! The colors are stunning, and the designs are simple but elegant! I highly recommend the Workshop-on-the-Go (WOTG) Scrapbooking kit for Ariana, too! The sketches, stamp set, fabric bows, and epoxy bubbles that come in the kit are so much fun to play with! Check out some of the beautiful artwork you can make with this POTM:

    This also means that the brand new LOTM will feature the Ariana paper pack as well! I have to apologize, though. I have been running around the country nonstop these last few months (let's see....Florida, Wisconsin, Iowa, Florida, Las Vegas, Wisconsin....) and, try as I might, I have been falling behind quickly! I have a couple finishing touches to put on the April LOTM before I take pictures and post them, but I am going to try my absolute hardest to get you some pictures before the weekend! Again, I am so sorry that I am postponing yet another reveal! One of these days I'm going to be home long enough to catch up on all my projects! Thank you so much for your patience! You all are awesome!

WOTG: Ariana Scrapbooking Kit : The layouts from this kit are going to be featured alongside the LOTM because I love them and cannot get enough of the layered patterns that these sketches provide!
    For those of you that have not heard of my LOTM deal yet, here is the full scoop! If you purchase the Ariana paper pack or Ariana WOTG kit during the month of April you will receive all the die-cuts, stamped images, and assembly instructions needed to complete the April LOTM for FREE! However, this offer is only good during the month of April, so take advantage of this amazing deal today by placing your Ariana paper order with me on my online shopping site! 

    Each month the layout is different, and each month I feature new die-cuts and stamped images on the layout so that each one is unique! If you participate each month to receive the LOTM for yourself, you'll end up with a year's worth of layouts automatically without having to do all the work! It's that easy! :) Plus, if you missed a LOTM that you would still like to make, you can purchase the diecuts, stamped images, and assembly instructions directly from me whenever you would like! Contact me for details and to find out the pricing of any past kits!

    Another awesome thing to check out this month is the new Rediscover download from CTMH! This month's theme is "Rediscover Creativity", and the FREE download this month features a fun and trendy Steampunk Alphabet set! I cannot wait to print these out and use them on some fun boy layouts for my nephews! Check it out:

    You can download this FREE, printable alphabet on my online shopping site, Candid Captures Shop! Make sure you get yours downloaded and saved before it expires at the end of the month, though!
