###That's a $60.80 value for $5!! Also you are not charged tax for FREE items!###

There has been a change to our Stamp Of the Month Program. For every $50.00 that you spend you can order a stamp of the month for $5.00. That is a great savings. You still have the option to purchase it at full price ($17.95). If you order the Stamp of the Month for August (wicked) you will get the stamp set TYPEFACE for FREE! Just our way of saying Thank You!

I've seen some pretty cool things done with the hexagon image! I can see this as a background for some cute pages. Here's a blog I visit often for inspiration. She has a beautiful card and you can follow the links on the blog hop if you want to see more creations!

I am so Lucky!!

Summer 2010 Stamps of the month($91 value)

First, I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband Chris (we've been married over 9 years now. . .holy cow!) and 2 awesome kids Mitch and Kailyn - our two little monkeys!! :-)
It's so awesome to be a mom........the most rewarding and most difficult job ever...sometimes all at the same time! How does that work? Right?!

Now to my FUN "job"....I can't believe I get to play with scrapbook papers and embellishments every day and have the opportunity to share my passion with others! How LUCKY is that? Plus, they pay me to do this? It will be two years at the end of April that I have been with CTMH, I just signed up for the discount because I LOVE the products SO much! I have found out it is so much more and have met so many women who love scrapbooking as much as I do and have become close friends with some of these women too! I never knew that there were so many nice, encouraging and supportive women! I can talk to these ladies about anything, we are like one big family! Close to my Heart always has an awesome special going on and this month they have "one upped" themselves, AGAIN! I wish I could sign up all over again. The low start up fee of $99 gets you your starter kit, (see here) with everything you need to get off to a running start! To make the deal even sweeter, for the month of March they are throwing in the 4 Stamps of the month from the 2010, Summer Catalog , for FREE (I don't even have these stamps yet!! They are SUPER cute!)

If you are even remotely interested in, learning about getting paid to scrapbook, join me on the FREE conference call being offered on Monday night at 9 pm EST. One of my CTMH sisters, Jillene Moen with the Scattered Hearts CTMH group will be speaking. Jillene is offering a drawing for a free stamp when you pre-register for this call, so let me know and I will get you registered. This call is an informational - NO pressure call.

Here are some Christmas Cards I made for a class at the library last week (the first 3). Above I used Jingle paper, Evergreen stamp set and a pattern from the Card How - To Book from CTMH called Originals. All of Close to my Heart's How to books are so easy to use and are filled with 100 patterns that you can use many different ways. They all contain beautiful artwork and I find myself turning to them for inspiration on a weekly basis! I used Liquid Glass to add some dimension to the star and the Christmas decorations! Liquid glass is so fun to use, because it adds so much for so little effort and cost!
The Aspen paper is one of my top 5 favorite paper packs right now! All I did to this card was glue down the patterned paper, stamp my sentiment using the Card Chatter-Christmas stamp, and adhered 3 snowflakes I punched out. I know, the patterned paper makes it look like I worked hard..........So quick and easy!
Here, I used the Jingle paper pack again, the Card Chatter-Christmas stamp set and added some Liquid glass and some prisma glitter, oh and some embroidery floss for the ornament. I cut out the ornament with my Cricuit.

I made a fourth card, just because I had some left over circles from the cutouts of the ornament that my Cricuit made.....this idea popped into my head to use them for ornaments. So, I free hand cut out some trees and tree trunks from my scrap pile added some ribbon and a sentiment and Wah La! another card is made.

The card class at the library went well! I had nine ladies come and only 2 had ever scrapbooked or stamped before! I enjoyed teaching everyone about my LOVE of paper crafting! Julie (my newest downline and friend) came to help me teach the ladies. She did a great job and helped me out tremendously! She is on her way to great things with Close to my Heart! Learn more about the CTMH opportunity on my website!
Yesterday was my first ever kids' class. We made a squash book and an ornament. I had 3 in the morning, Mandy's children Caroline and Gavin and my neighbor McKayla. In the afternoon my girlfriend came with Aiden and Claire (they usually play with my kids while we scrapbook). They played and had fun making their projects!
Well, I'd better be getting to bed, it's off to work at my "real" job bright and early in the am!!!!
I'll try to post some more Christmas projects I have been working on, later this week! This is gonna be a busy one! I have two Christmas dinners to go to (still gotta make the exchange gifts for those! I am such a procrastinator!), take the kids to go see Santa, pick up a few more gifts that are left on my Christmas list, Scrapbook date with Missy, meeting at work on Weds and work on Mon and Tues. Somewhere in there I gotta fit in the wrapping of gifts too and mailing out my Christmas cards!! Can't believe Christmas is only 12 days away!!
Enjoy the Christmas Spirit!
Until next time...
