-Sponge daub all pieces with Slate ink
-Adhere 3/4 x 4" strips to White Daisy 4 x 5 1/4" piece leaving room at the bottom for your sentiment

-Assemble bows

September's Stamp of the Month

I am really loving this month's Stamp of the Month, Paper Garden! It partners with the cricut cartridge Artiste to make stamping the images even easier! I created a few cards that were inspired by other consultants artwork (Jen Rubio, Georgia O'Shea and Donna Cosgrove). I also used our new watercolors on the first card. Make a qualifying order of $50 this month and get this stamp for $5!

September's Special

September is National Stamping Month, and this year Close To My Heart has something to help every kind of papercrafter say a big “hello” to life! Available only during the month of September, these exclusive C-size My Acrylix® Hello, Life! stamp sets can be purchased for $13.95 each! Or, for an even better deal, you can purchase all three for only $34.95 —a savings of $6.90! Each stamp set is designed to fit with a specific type of papercrafting, whether that’s scrapbooking, cardmaking, or pocket scrapbooking. However, all the stamp sets coordinate with each other and can be used together to create dynamic artwork. These stamp sets also coordinate with shapes from the new Cricut® Artistry collection to help expand your artwork options even further. Remember, these stamp sets are available for one month only, so get your orders in for one stamp set—or all three—before these gorgeous stamps disappear!

September's Virtual Club Card Kit

I am starting a new club for those that are unable to attend my workshops at my house!

Each month I will design a card kit featuring a CTMH stamp set. Each kit will contain either a C or B sized stamp set, 4 projects that are pre-cut and individually bagged with embellishments needed and complete instructions with pictures. Any items that are embossed or cut from the cricut will be included as well. These kits will not be pre-stamped unless I happen to use a stamp from a set that was not featured. You will need to have a variety of adhesives, inks, markers and colored pencils to complete the kits.

You can order my kit month-by-month or you can sign up for 6 months. If you complete a full 6 months of kits then you will receive a gift FREE from me! You can choose a current paper pack OR a B sized stamp set OR and an ink pad!

Also, your club order ($20) will count towards the purchase of the stamp of the month or a monthly special.

Here's how it works:

Place your order and pay for this months kit by the 15th of the month or sign a 6 month contract and I will send you a pay pal invoice on the 10th - due by the 15th. The cost is $25 each month and includes taxes and shipping & handling. Kits will be shipped directly to you by the end of the month. Order for 6 months in a row and receive a FREE gift from me!

This month's kit uses the stamp set Positive Chemistry and features Zoe papers. Embellishments included Glacier Extra Thick Twine, Aqua Dots and Sparkles.I stamped in Black ink and used Shin Han Markers: Warm Grey, Light Orange, Leaf Green and Turquoise Blue.

If you are interested in purchasing this kit; you can send me a private message on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/lmjcreates?ref=hl.

I would also like to thank Close To My Heart Consultant, Dawn Montagano, for sharing her idea with me and others. Her generosity is much appreciated.
