Start the year with beautiful "Style" and "Inspirations"

Did you know that January is considered to be “National Papercrafting Month”? Those of us who love paper crafts are going to really love the new kit and stamps that Close To My Heart has unveiled to celebrate!

A complete brochure called Inspirations has been created with loads of beautiful artwork showcasing the new “Wings” papers and coordinating products. Click here to see it in my website. The beauty of Close To My Heart is that we are dedicated to not just showing beautiful papers and more, but showing you how to create beautiful things with them. The Workshop on the Go (WOTG) kits include complete instructions on using your papers and the basic products you’ll need to complete them! The “Wings” WOTG is no exception and it is an especially creative one. Here’s what you can make:

And, here’s a picture of all that’s included in the WOTG:  how-to workshop guide, complete Wings paper packet, special stamp set, new Spray mist pen and embellishments.

In addition, an absolutely beautiful Stamp of the Month is being offered at an extra special incentive price. Here is a copy of it (remember that the carrier sheet it comes on is about 6x6 to give you an idea of the size of these stamps) and cards made with it:

Normally you need to spend $100 to receive the Stamp of the Month for free but this January it can be yours free for as little as $50 (before s/h/tax) in purchases from items in the Inspirations brochure.  That's right - only $50 and you can receive the SOTM for FREE!

Here’s how I got that math figured out and all the products you would receive:

Wings Workshop on the Go Kit (G1016) - $29.95 (includes a complete Level 2 ”Wings” paper packet, the special “Wings” B-sized stamp set, the new Spray mist Pen, black embellishments and the How-To guide brochure for making 2 layouts and 6 cards!)

Wings Level 2 My Stickease (X7135C) - $4.95 (2 sheets)

Black Mini-Medley Collection (Z1393) - $4.95 (brads, buttons, ribbon, etc.)

Wings Level 2 Pleated Ribbon Assortment (Z1398) - $4.95 (3 colors pleated style!)

A Game stamp set (A1113) - $5.00 (cute Tic-Tac-Toe game pieces and board!)

              Subtotal: $49.80 WOW!!!

Then the Stamp of the Month, “Find Your Style” (a D-sized set), is yours FREE and that’s a deal!!

This is just my suggestion for how to receive the SOTM for free at the lowest price with the Inspirations promotion. However, there are other extra special prices on absolutely gorgeous new stamp sets that can also be purchased at a discount throughout the brochure. The Workshop How-To also includes a bonus project: the directions for decorating the new “My Creations Banner” – a set of 8 chipboard pennant pieces.

I hope you'll be inspired to create with beauty and style at great prices, and let me show you how with Close To My Heart’s wonderful products!

1-1-11 ... How's that for a date!

One of my favorite Bible passages is the short and sweet Psalm 121 and it was great this morning to attend my church's services to hear the first sermon of the year based on this passage. 

"I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from? 
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip-- he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD watches over you-- the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. 
The LORD will keep you from all harm-- he will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. "

May you find comfort in knowing that while we don't know the future, you can always trust in the One who holds the future!

Have a Joyous New Year 2011!  ~Debbie
