Journals for the kids

I finished altering some journals for my grandkids today.  I thought maybe they could write about their summer adventures in them.  On the ones for the two boys I used the LATER SK8Rpaper packet and the Workshop On The Go stamp set.  On Kaitlyn's I used the CLAIRE paper packet and the GIRL'S ROCK stamp set.  I used OUTDOOR DENIM INK on both of them.  The kids are 6 and 8 years old so I didn't want to put a lot of layers on the outside of the journals, knowing they will probably get tossed around a lot!  I hope the kids like their new journals and use them.

Some of the retiring product that was recently announced is selling out fast, so if there is anything you want, place your order soon!  My shopping website is:  If you place an order online please click to JOIN the open online party I have!
Thanks for stopping by today, leave me some comments so I know you were here, and please feed the fish on your way out!  Hope to see you again soon.

Card I made with June SOTM

Good Morning!
Thanks for stopping by today!  Grab a glass of tea and browse around for a while.  It's a rainy morning here, hope the sun is shining on you wherever you are!

I wanted to let everyone know that our June special with the Mini Banner has ended as the stock is depleted.  The Patriotic stamps are still available and the THANK-YOU stamp to help Oklahoma is still available too.

CTMH has announced their retired product list.  It includes our waxy flax, buttons and brads, most of the colors of embossing powders, several stamps from the fall/winter 2012 Idea Book, and the following paper collections: Claire, Later Sk8r, Dakota, Scholastic, Clementine, Avonlea, and Buzz and Bumble.  If you want a complete list, let me know and I can email one to you!  Some of these items are selling fast, so if you want any, don't wait too long!

Our new Fall/Winter Idea Book goes into effect August 1.  Contact me for a copy of it or view it online starting August 1.  I will be hosting an Open House in the near future showing some of the new product.  Watch for more information coming on that!

Here is a card I made with our June Stamp Of The Month 'A FLOWERING BUNCH'.  It is a cute set and I can't wait to make more with it!!  I colored the flowers with our markers and used our 3d foam tape to 'pop-up' some of the parts!  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!  There is still time to place a $50 order and receive this stamp set for only $5!!

"thanks a bunch" for stopping by, and come back real soon!

Close To My Heart is helping the victims of the recent tornado in Oklahoma by releasing a new stamp from the Fall/Winter Idea Book early.  100% of the profits from the sale of 'A TRUE THANK-YOU' will go to the American Red Cross-Oklahoma Relief between now and June 30.  The stamp sells for $2.95 and uses a 2x2 block (sold seperately).

Celebrate military service and patriotism with our new patriotic stamp sets!  These 3 sets are available now through July 31.  For each set sold CTMH will donate $3-5 to the USO (for the American sets) and Canadian Hero Fund (for the Canadian one) .  The American sets are 'HOME OF THE BRAVE' and 'COURAGE' and the Canadian set is 'STRONG AND FREE'.  Again, these stamp sets can be used on both cards and scrapbook pages, and also home decor!
