August Close To My Heart Specials

It's finally here!  August 1...which not only means new specials, but also that the BRAND SPANKIN' NEW Autumn/Winter Idea Book is finally LIVE! WOO HOO! 

I will be focusing on some of the new products starting tomorrow here on my blog, and for weeks to come.  There are some BEAUTIFUL new things.  In the meantime, feel free to view this book page-by-delicious-page by clicking here. If there's anything you can't live without (trust me, there'll be LOTS), head on over to my website to start shoppin'!  If you want a copy of your very own, and are a US resident, just call or email me (801.360.9896,  It is $5, which is just to cover shipping and when I ship it to you I will include a FREE $5 gift certificate that you can use on your very first order from the book from me.  Cool beans!

Wait! Before you do that, I must tell you about the August Special, "Sweetening the Deal!"  You'll want to take advantage of that!


The Stamp of the Month sets each month are already a pretty big treat – it doesn’t get much better than trendy, must-have stamp sets for just $5 each month (with a qualifying $50 purchase).  But this month, we’re sweetening the deal even more!  When you place a minimum $50 order (before shipping and tax) in August, you will receive the August Stamp of the Month (A Chocolate Affair) absolutely FREE!  This set includes 16 images and sentiments to add some flavor to any layout, card or 3D item!

To get this stamp set for FREE, just shoot me an email or give me a jingle with a $50 order (801.360.9896,, or order right on my website. In fact, how cool is this:  you get a FREE set for EACH $50 you spend (before shipping and tax).

You know that delicious looking card (8" x 3.5") at the beginning of the post? Well, I used this 'sweet' stamp set to create it.

You know that delicious looking strawberry? The one that is currently making your mouth water? Well, to get that look I stamped it three times: once in Cocoa Pigment Ink on my White Daisy Cardstock circle, once in Ruby Pigment Ink on a scratch piece of White Daisy Cardstock, and one more in Topiary Pigment Ink on a scratch piece of White Daisy Cardstock. I added Clear Embossing Powder to the top and used my trusty Heat Gun to emboss the images. I then cut out the stem of the Topiary one and the strawberrry part of the Ruby one and glued those little puppies on top of the Cocoa image for a very realistic looking chocolate dipped strawberry.

Close To My Heart Products used:  August Stamp of the Month, Paisley Perfect Stamp Set (NEW!), White Daisy Cardstock, Cocoa Cardstock, Chantilly Paper Pack, Hollyhock Stamp Pad (to stamp paisleys with), Cocoa Stamp Pad (to distress edges of everything with using a Round Sponge), Cocoa Pigment Pad, Ruby Pigment Pad, Topiary Pigment Pad, Clear Embossing Powder, Chocolate Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.

Happy August!
