Almost GONE and a Thank You Card

5 1/2" x 4 1/4" thank u card made with Dream Pop
It's almost gone! That amazing Dream Pop paper pack (which I used to make this thank u card) that is yours for only $10 ($40 value) with a $35 in May is almost gone. They special was advertised as ending May 31, or while supplies last. I think that While Supplies Last is going to trump the May 31. As of this morning there were less than 11% of the supply left. So, if you want it (and you know you do!), order TODAY!
thank u card detail

It's easy, peasy. Just go to my website and spend at least $35 (before shipping and tax) and you will be prompted to add the paper pack before you check out. Don't forget that anyone who orders this kit from me will receive a full-color workshop, complete with cutting guides and instructions from me in the mail.

This workshop also uses the May Stamp of the Month (Pinwheel), which is yours for only $5 ($17.95 value) with a $50 order. If you spend the $35 to get Dream Pop, add Dream Pop for $10, then you are only $5 away from getting the darling May Stamp of the Month for $5. You will also be prompted to add this cute little puppy before you check out.

Think about it: if you spend $40, get the Dream Pop paper pack for $10, and the May Stamp of the Month for $5, you have spent a total of $55 (before shipping and tax) and are getting $97.95 in products! 

Here are some photos of the Dream Pop Paper Pack as well as the May Stamp of the Month:

Help for Oklahoma and Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!  More on that in a minute...

First I wanted to say that I am so proud to represent a Close To My Heart, a company who cares about not only it's own consultants and customers, but for people in general. I have watched them step forward to help in Red Cross relief efforts with hurricanes, tsunamis, and now tornadoes. 

One hundred percent of profits from sales of this little single stamp set, "A True Thank You" (from May 23 to June 30) will be donated to the American Red Cross to aid tornado victims in Oklahoma. Recommended My Acrylix® Blocks:  2" × 2" (Y1003).

You can order this set on my website with order #M1029. It's only $2.95. Snap up a few!  They are great little gifts!

And, while we're talking about caring about other people... back that HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY thought at the beginning of my post. Thank you to ALL those who have served our country and their families!  Special thanks today to my brother in law, Scott. Scott is on his 2nd one-year deployment in the last several years.  I have watched first hand his love for his country and the sacrifice it is for him (and his family) to leave for extended periods of time to protect our freedoms and leave a wife and 3 children at home without him.

Dream Pop "Princess Livvi" Layout

Back today with some more Dream Pop. This layout was inspired by a one page layout that the Close To My Heart Art Department made.  I added a 2nd page and put a few of my own touches here and there.

To find out how to get the Dream Pop paper pack (available only in May and only $10), just go here.  Easy, peasy!  Then just head on over to my website and start shoppin'!

2 Cards: Hi and Let's Celebrate

4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card using the Dream Pop papers

Back today with more artwork from the fabulous Dream Pop paper pack (get it only in May for $10 {$40 value} with a $35 order {before shipping and tax}) and the May Stamp of the Month (get in only in May for $5 {$17.95 value} with a $50 order {before shipping and tax}). I love both of them and they are both selling like hotcakes. Don't miss out!

You'll be prompted to add both items when shopping on my website before you check out.  Nice!

I made the card at the top of the post using the Dream Pop papers with a few little extras added:  Slate Polka Dot Washi Tape, Pixie Glitter Alphabet, Trinkets Wooden Shapes, Pink Glitter Gems  and Silver Shimmer Trim.  Can you tell I love sparkly bling with this paper? This card was inspired by one that was made by the Close To My Heart Art Department. I just put my own little spin on things.

Here's a detail shot:

sparkles make me happy!

Here is a quick shot of the papers and a close up of the gorgeous clear embossed cardstock in this set. Don't forget that anyone who purchases this beautiful paper pack from me in May will get a FREE full-color project guide from me to make some amazing projects with it. Many of them feature the May Stamp of the Month, so I suggest you make sure you get that too.


Now on to the May Stamp of the Month. I think I love the versatile stars and sentiments as much as I love the darling pinwheels in this set.
