Thank You and October’s Specials

Thank You and October’s Specials

Huge thank you to my customers and team for doing such an awesome job to help me reach the 2nd tier of the Thailand trip.  At the end of the day,  we were 3700 points short.  We won’t have a Cricut Air 2 to give away.  We have a lot of other fun goodies to give away at 8pm EDT today via live feed on my FB Page!  So join us!!  What are we giving away?  Here’s the list:

  • Workspace Wonder Bundle
  • Retired Cricut Collection with the Physical Cartridge
  • 4 – 50% off items (you pay the 50%/your choice of anything current)

That’s 6 amazing giveaways!!

Share a Smile – October Special!!

Operation Smile is a wonderful organization that gives not only smiles back to children and adults, but life.  By fixing clef lips and palettes, they transform their lives.  They can eat, drink, talk, and become socially acceptable in their communities where physical disability often bring ostracization from the community.   In addition to this super cute special, I’ll show you below, please remember to round up when you check out.  CTMH is matching all rounding up this month!!  Your cents go that much further.


With the purchase of every Punny Pals stamp set, Close To My Heart donates $7 USD of the proceeds to Operation Smile™, an organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children around the world. To bring these stamp images to life, we’ve made a coordinating set of Thin Cuts dies and an exclusive card kit! The card kit includes the dies, card bases, envelopes, paper, and step-by-step instructions for creating 32 cards, and it is available at a discounted price! Create these delightful cards and use them to share smiles all around!

The Share a Smile card kit can be yours for FREE when you become a Consultant in October or when you host a qualifying party.  I’d love to have you as a hostess (home gathering or online/catalog show) or as a fellow team member.  I’ve been with CTMH for 17+ years and honestly, I can’t image life without CTMH.  Some of my closest and longest lasting friendships have come from Conventions and other events.  I’m part of a strong team and lead one as well.  You can check out all the reasons to join us here.



Physical Cartridge Cricut® Collections to Retire – They are available while they last!!

Provo Craft has recently made the decision to discontinue production of physical Cricut® cartridges.  This means that all Cricut® Collections that include a physical cartridge are available while supplies last.  What that means to you is that NOW is the time to buy the ones that are available before they are gone.   What’s available:

You Are Here is easily marketed as a travel collection BUT You Are Here is literally wherever YOU are at any point in your life!! Growing a family, sports, travel, staycation, Girls Weekend, family reunions, outdoor escapades and hunting, spa retreats and holiday outings.  You name it, it’s in there.  Be sure to watch Cardz TV to see Mary make wonderful cards from what appears to be a scrapbooking cartridge!Wherever you’re at in your life today, tomorrow or yesterday…You Are Here has shapes and sentiments for every pit stop along the road of life! Click here to see the You Are Here Shapes and You Are Here Index and all the versatile images available!

Flower Market is so much fun!  It has anything and everything to do with flowers, featuring blooms and blossoms for every season of life…but that’s not all, it also includes containers, banners, critters and more to hold or complement all of the 3-D and layered flower images!!  This collection is extremely versatile and includes 2 background/texture stamps to add detail to your cut images,  a fabulous sentiment stamp set,  and a package of our Adventure cardstock! I love the sentiment stamp set because it’s done in two fonts for the sentiments, the “in-thing” for right now.  It’s also small, making it very easy to fit on banners and tags.  Check out the Flower Market Shape Index, Flower Market Images and Flower Market Handbook!

Artistry is a trendy addition to the Close to My Heart Cricut lineup and your craft stash! This collection includes shapes spanning a wide variety of themes, holidays, and seasons to add some visual spice to any project you create. Get back to basics with the unique font, banners, layered shapes, borders, backgrounds, and other fun icons you’ll find on this cartridge. All of the designs are a must for any crafter! Check out the Artistry Shape Index and Artistry Handbook today to see all the beautiful images available!

Artbooking is one of my favorites!  It’s all about scrapbooking and mini-albums and is crazy awesome goodness!! For the offline Cricut machines, you set your cricut at 11″ then cut everything for coordinating layouts with overlays, titles, photo mats, etc and it all cuts proportionally for a 12×12 page! For the Cricut Explore, you can drop completed layouts or select pieces to create your own layout.  It’s wonderful to be able to use Design Space to change things to make it what you need.  The mini-albums give you a “recommended” finished album size then tells you what size to set your dial, you cut all the pieces at the same size setting and have a complete proportionally cut mini-album to assemble. Each of the themes (Freedom, Friends, Fall, etc) have 28 elements per theme, allowing you to have endless creative combinations. Check out the Artbooking Shape Index, Artbooking Handbook and Artbooking Sample Projects today to see all the pre-designed layouts and mini-albums available!

Digital collections will remain available for all of these collections.
