HUGE, HUGE SALE and FREE GIFT!


Happy Friday Everyone!

Last night I received notification from CTMH that they will be adding new items to the "While Supplies Last" section of my website (amy.ctmh.com) TOMORROW, DECEMBER 1st.  Among the new additions you will find a wide variety of paper and coordination accessories, all with a substantial markdown.  You  will also find that most of the items that are currently available will also see a FURTHER MARKDOWN at that time!

To sweeten the deal even more, from December 1-31st, all orders placed on my website that reach or exceed $50 will also include a FREE BONDING MEMORIES GLUE PEN (#Z533)-a $4.50 value!  I invite you to shop early, because these deals are only available while supplies last.

The end of the Autumn / Winter 2012 Idea Book is drawing near—January 31, 2013 to be exact! As with all Idea Books, The Spring / Summer 2013 Idea Book promises the release of some amazing new products! But as we enthusiastically bring in the new, we must reluctantly retire some of the old.  

Below is the 2012 Autumn/Winter Idea Book Retiring List

CTMH does their best to keep these products in stock until the end of their Idea Book cycle, but effective immediately, the items on this list are available only while supplies last.
 If you see products on this list that have been on your Wish List (some of my favorite things are on this list!), I encourage you to purchase them more sooner than later.

Have a wonderful weekend!

SMiles,
Amy

Christmas Mini




Can you tell I am really into the Christmas Spirit this week?  Oh how I LOVE creating holiday themed cards, layouts and projects!  Here is a fun little creation I made using the CTMH ARTISTE CRICUT BUNDLE, Pear & Partridge Paper Pack, Dimensional Elements and Glittery Rub-On's and a variety of other fun CTMH embellishments.
The Artiste Bundle comes with 3 "Gotta Have" stamp sets that are only available with the bundle.  The bundle also comes with 3 super fun Dimensional Element Chipboard Sheets-all pieces coordinate with the Artiste.  One of the Dimensional Element sheets is the "ALBUM PAGES."  These babies are, by far, my favorite in the Dimensional Element Collection.  I LOVE making mini books!  And you can do just that super FAST, super EASY and they are SUPER cute using the press of a few keys on your Artiste Cricut!  I love that all I did was press a button to get the paper cut to cover my chipboard pieces.  So much easier than tracing the shapes and then having to cut out your traced pieces!  This mini album came together pretty quickly.  It was so much fun to embellish the pages with all the FUN metals, rub-on's, pear & partridge compliments and ribbons that CTMH offers to us!  The chipboard pieces give the pages durability so there is no need to worry about bent or ripped pages as family and friends enjoy the treasures scattered across each page!
The Dimensional Element Sheets ARE available in the CTMH Idea Book as separate items so you can order them again and again.  This is so nice because you can add as many pages as you would like to all your mini's!
This holiday themed mini serves as a nice home decor piece when placed on a coffee table.  It would also be the perfect gift for a hostess, parent, teacher, friend, for EVERYONE!

ENJOY!

Another Memory File...mini style


I hope you enjoyed learning a bit about the memory file I shared with you yesterday.  Below are some photos of a mini file I created using the same paper pack (Pear & Partridge) to preserve photos from our 8th Camp McGrew trip that we took the summer of 2011.  ENJOY!

Memory Files-a unique way to record your memories

Good Morning!
This past summer I had the privilege to teach a class at the Close To My Heart Convention.  The corporate office sent me the "Pear & Partridge Kit (#X7162B).  This kit is so much fun to work with!  I used this kit, along with the exclusive CTMH 12 x 12 True Fit Folios (item #X1404) to create a Holiday Memory Folder.  The idea of a memory file originated from Heidi Swapp, a FABULOUS scrapbooker/paper crafter.   I took her idea and tweaked it to make it my own.  

Memory Files are a fun and unique approach to preserving memories.  I shared in my class that this would be a great way to record monthly highlights.  Both adults and children can record every day highlights and special moments.  One idea is to create a file for each month of the year and then store them in a fun box.  Family and loved ones will have such fun grabbing the box and looking through the files year after year.  This is a GREAT gift to present to just about anyone!   Use this idea to record memories of each school year.  The file folios are prefect for holding special papers, report cards and artwork!
This concept works with just about EVERY theme and/or event imaginable!

Below are photos of the Christmas File I created.  I used the Pear & Partridge Glittery Rub-On Compliments and Dimensional Elements, as well as the CTMH ARTISTE CRICUT CARTRIDGE (item #Z1790).  This is a MUST for all paper crafters/scrapbookers to create all the interactive elements you see!

All products can be ordered on my website HERE.  Or feel free to contact me if you have any questions and/or if you would like me to place the order for you. 

If you are interested in hosting a private class on this project contact me today!  My studio is open and my instruction is FREE.  You and your friends are only responsible for purchasing the supplies needed to successfully complete the project.  And YOU can earn HOSTESS REWARDS if you have enough guests! 
Interested in starting a monthly Memory File Club?  Let me know!  January will be the perfect time to begin a 12 month club.  Come next December we will have 11 completed files full of priceless memories and treasures to re-visit time and time again!
 Enjoy these photos!
