LAST DAY for March Close To My Heart Specials

Today is March 31...the last day to get your orders in for the March Close To My Heart specials.

Don't forget...

1. Studio J 2-page 12" x 12" layouts are only $5 in March.  You'll need to have yours ordered by midnight (MT) tonight to qualify.  Here's one I made of my family a couple of years ago. It's amazing how times change. We've added 3 more grandchildren and one more daughter-in-law since then! To play with Studio J, just click here.

2.  The March Stamp of the Month retires tonight at midnight (MT) as well. It's yours for only $5 ($17.95 value) with a $50 or more purchase.  If you're ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add this set before you check out. I created the 3" x 3" card at the top of this post with this fun set.

A Card and a Studio J Layout

One of the new Close To My Heart products that I have fallen in love with is our line of Embossing Folders.  I decided to pair one of them with the March Stamp of the Month today to create a 5" x 7" card.  I remember the first time I saw this stamp set. The first thing I thought was, "Hmmm, I'm not sure that's really my style."  SILLY ME!  As soon as I got one of those little bubushkas in my hand and stamped I fell in love.  I am sure you will too. Those roly poly little dolls have stolen my heart. Not only are they fun Russian stacking dolls, but they also remind me of the "Weebles wobble but the don't fall down!" commercials. Remember those? I have enjoyed pairing this set with bright, fresh and clean primary colors this month in my artwork.

Here is the entire March Stamp of the Month set.  It's only $5 with a $50 order. If ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your babushkas before you check out.

I also wanted to remind you that Studio J 2-page layouts are only $5 during month. Hurry quickly!  March 31 is the deadline for this and it's just around the corner!  Here's a Studio J layout I created of our son, Easton.  Studio J is quick, easy and affordable. It's digital, so there's no mess.  Best of all, it's SO USER FRIENDLY. Check it out. It's free to  play. You don't pay a penny until you order layouts.

Last Week for March Close To My Heart Specials Plus a Card and a Layout

What? What did you say? Only one more week of March?  I must say that this month has flown by.  If you have had a month like me and time is flying faster than ever, then take a quick moment to review our March specials (along with some artwork to go with it) today so that you don't miss out!

1.  March Stamp of the Month:  with every $50 you spend in March, you qualify for this darling nesting dolls stamp set ($17.95 value) at only $5.  Spend $50 and get one, spend $100 and get two, and so on!  I have had fun playing with this set this month.  Today I thought I'd share a standard card (5 1/2" x 4 1/4") I created with this fun stamp set (see above).  You can shop on my website 24/7...but this little gem of a set is only available in March.

Here's a detail shot of the card:

2.  Studio Savings in March:  During the month of March, order your Studio J™(CTMH's digital scrapbooking program) 2-page  layouts—including ones using our new Photo Express Collection—for only $5 each! That's only $2.50 per page!!!!

I created this Studio J layout of Dawson using his 17 year old birthday photos. I love this layout. It is one of my all-time favorite layouts.  And, it was so easy to create on Studio J. I especially love the technique I used of creating 4 squares out of one photo (see right page).

A little more about Studio J....

Quickly create gorgeous, personalized studio layouts using our wide selection of digital papers, collections, patterns, and embellishments. And don’t forget to check out the templates in our new Photo Express Collection, which allow you to design layouts entirely comprised of photos in minutes. You’ve taken the photos. Now keep the memories™.

Begin your Studio J adventure on my website today. It's absolutely free to sign up and play. You don't pay a penny until you order the layouts you've created!

Wedding Sign In Book: Tyler and Angela

Opening page
I mentioned before that I would be sharing the second wedding sign in book I created for the past week. This one is for our nephew, Tyler and his beautiful bride (the wedding is TOMORROW!), Angela.  Their colors were turquoise and coral so I used CTMH's Lagoon and Smoothie papers and then brought in a bit of grey with CTMH's Slate.  I also mixed in a bit of paper from the Ariana paper pack and accented with some paper flowers that are retired (darn!). Luckily I had plenty and used what I had on hand. I also loved using CTMH's new Quatrefoil Embossing Folder to give some texture to the Lagoon and Smoothie cardstock pieces.  You can see a product list (with photos and links) at the bottom of this post. You can also order any great Close To My Heart products on my website...24/7!

 As you can see, there is lots of blank space on the layouts for signatures (except the opening and closing pages, which are not to be signed on).
