CTMH November Specials


What better way to start the long winter with a nice supply of papers and complements?! It’s a perfect way to tackle your scrapbooking and cardmaking needs. What I love about CTMH’s papers is that the scale is just right for both cardmaking and scrapping. The only hard part? Deciding which side of the paper to use! ha ha…but with this FUNdamentals sale – double up and you will never have to chose.

Seriously though – if you have NOT tried Close To My Hearts papers yet….now is the time.  No more excuses with this great sale!  Want to save even more?  Think about hostessing a party – you can earn $25 in free products (or more!).  Ask me how!

CTMH’s November Stamp of the Month is called Through the Year. Just like the fundamentals – it’s perfect for cardmaking AND scrapbooking! You can buy it for retail at $17.95 or, if you have a $50 order or more, it’s just $5!

October Wrap Up

amusestudio 013

First, let me say Happy Halloween to everyone and I wanted to thank  Andrea H and Kristy R for these two awesome halloween cards. They are both amazing cards and this photo does not do them justice.

Today is the LAST day of two great A Muse Studio promotions.  Last chance to get this Limited Edition Holiday Hoopla stamp set which has been a huge favorite of many of my customers and hostess club members.  I have been stamping up a storm with it myself!  You have until midnight but I must place your order for you…email me for more info.

I want to share with you my uber-talented upline Angela Kelley’s work with A Muse Studio’s Fight Like a Girl stamp set available only during October…she used it in combination with stamp sets from both the main and holiday A Muse Studio catalogs.  I find her work amazing…and wanted to share her work with the world!

In a totally different style, but using that same stamp set, here is a card I made inspired by Miriam Prantner that I found on Pinterest.  I used Blush, Bubblegum and Berry amuse studio inks plus their stamp set, Birthday Balloons.
