It's June...It's June...It's JUNE !!!

    **Sorry that this is a little late being posted today, and that I missed publishing the end of May's post yesterday! I have been out of town doing a workshop, and was unable to get completely caught up last week before leaving! Thank you for your understanding during this busy time of year!**

   Can you tell I'm excited about it being June 1st??? I only have 2 weeks until I leave for Reno/Tahoe/Susanville/Anaheim! It's going to be an amazing trip just to see these places where I've never been, but also, in the middle of my trip, I will be attending Close to My Heart's Annual Convention at Disneyland!

    This is my very first CTMH Convention, and I am bubbling with excitement! I cannot wait to see all the creative projects taught by amazing consultants, learn fun new workshops that I can share with all of you, and of course see and play with all the new products set to release August 1st in CTMH's brand new Annual Idea Book!!! That's right.....I said Annual Idea Book! If you haven't heard me talk about it yet, here are the key details of our new Idea Book & Catalog program:
  • Annual Idea Book will release August 1, 2014 and stay active for an entire year!
  • Size: 8 1/2" x 11" with 192 pages packed with 250 brand new products, tools, and creative artwork!
  • Stamp sets will continue to be shown at 100% actual size!
  • You will see an entire year's worth of stamp-of-the-month promotions so you can can your orders accordingly!!
  • New price of only $6 (for anyone not on my catalog mailing list!!)
    CTMH will also be releasing 2 supplemental Idea Books during the time the Annual Idea Book is active! These supplemental Idea Book are called Seasonal Expressions, and will be amazing complements to the main Annual Book! Here are some details on the Seasonal Expressions Idea Books:
  • Seasonal Expressions #1: Fall/Winter Idea Book will debut December 2014

  • Only $1 per book (for anyone not on my catalog mailing list!!)
    While in California, I will not have a lot of time to update my blog or Facebook page, but I am going to try and keep you all in the loop as much as I can! If you don't already, follow me on Instagram, @KMcQuistan, or click the link in the left sidebar! That way you can at least get sneak peeks at projects I'm working on, events I'm attending, and possibly even some sneaks at the new Idea Book! :)

   So now that I've nerded out for the last 5 minutes of your's what you need to know about my workshops and classes in June:
  1. I will officially be "out of the office" from June 16-30th. This does not mean that you cannot contact me during this time! It just means that all orders will have to be shipped directly to you during this time period!
  2. Candid Captures will not be hosting "Scrap Your Stash" or "Crafting with Cricut" classes during the month of June. Summer is a busy time for everyone, and I simply won't be home enough to be able to have these events this month.
  3. Workshop Wednesday: Part II of the Binder Mini Album will still be held June 11th from 12-2pm and again from 6-8pm. See all the details under Event Calendars.
  4. June's LOTM kit will continue to be a promotion all month long! So make sure and check out the details of that below! 
     Now for the inside steals and deals for the month of June! Here's what you've been waiting for:

June SOTM: Kaboom

    This adorable new stamp set is perfect for all those summer pages and projects! There are 16 stamp images on this set, and all of them are perfect for adding fun details to any project! Check out the images below to see for yourself:

    You can get this awesome stamp set for $17.95 or, during this month only, you can get this set for $5 with any qualifying purchase of $50 or more! So make sure and get yours this month! You do not want to miss out on this cute and versatile stamp set!

June's Paper Pack-of-the-Month: Jubilee

   This month I will be featuring the Jubilee paper pack on my projects, layouts, and designs! This paper pack is perfect for summer! The fun colors, the vintage country style design, and the cute county fair/state fair theme is perfect for recording all those wonderful summer memories! Check out the papers and some featured projects using this fun paper pack:

Jubilee Level 2 layout using the Jubilee Complements and Assortment set
Jubilee Level 2 layout using the Jubilee Complements and Assortment set
Jubilee Level 3 artwork display using the Jubilee Complements, Jubilee Assortment, Fancy Fair stamp set, and Made from Scratch stamp set

     The Jubilee paper pack will also be used for the Monthly Layout kit! This is a little different than what I was doing before! I am going to continue with the new idea that I switched to last month using the Timberline paper pack! Instead of showing just one LOTM during June, I will be showing how you can get 3 awesome layouts using just one Jubilee paper pack, minimal additional cardstock, our awesome Cricut Cartridges, and some select stamp sets! You even get to see 2-3 card ideas using scraps from the paper pack! 

    Would you like to make the featured, awesome layouts for yourself using this fun paper pack??? It's super easy to get everything you need! All you have to do is purchase the Jubilee Paper Pack or Jubilee WOTG from Candid Captures during the month of June. Then you will receive the all the cutting and assembly instructions for all 3 layouts and cards for FREE! It's a fantastic deal (less than $10 for the Jubilee paper pack), and a great way to kick start your scrapbooking pages!

    If you want to use the same stamped images, die-cuts, and embellishments, a complete list of supplies is available upon request (that way you can purchase everything you need in one order)! If you have any questions about my new special monthly offer, contact me and I would love to help you out! I will be posting pictures of the Jubilee's Monthly Layout Kit later this week! I have not had a chance to put the finishing touches on the layouts yet since I have been busy with a couple workshops last week, and being out of town for 3 days! So I'm very sorry for the delay, but the information and pictures will be up before I leave for CA!

FREE Rediscover Printable:

    A new month also means that CTMH has released a new Rediscover download! This month the theme is "Rediscover Fun", and the FREE download features a cute, printable popsicle invitation! I cannot wait to print these out to use for our next summer BBQ get together! Check it out:
