A "2 minute Warning" for Whoo's Your Valentine

I just looked and the inventory for the beautiful Whoo's Your Valentine kit is down to 4%! This kit is only available through this Thursday but when supplies are gone, it's gone! If you want one, you need to order it quickly, through my website for best chance at securing one. Remember it is only $10 with a $35 order from the Autumn/Winter products Idea Book.
My talented upline, Annette Green, made this beautiful card with that stamp set - aren't the owl and heart clusters just gorgeous?!

I made a very simple card using the January Stamp of the month "Happy Valentine's" (also only available through Jan. 31st). Isn't the bow cute? It's made with our great Cricut cartridge, the Artiste.
You can look at the previous posts to see the images of these two stamp sets - very useful for many occasions, not just Valentine's Day.  Remember also the great savings if you combine both offers - almost a $40 savings!
Here's another card I made recently with the new little monogram stamps and the Cricut Artiste set of "swing" cards.  You can see from one picture to the other why they are called "swing" cards. I made them as large as could fit in a matching little box, also made with the Artiste - looks really neat!  I made a stationary set to give my best friend and her little girl as a birthday present with another paper kit and it also looked great -but I forgot to take a picture of it!

 Well, hope these pics inspire you to create something great & please contact me if you have any questions!
Making memories with you,

Start the New Year with telling someone how special they are to you!

Those of us who make handmade cards many times do so, not because it's less expensive or faster, but because we want to show the recipient how special they are to us, giving them something we believe is extra special. Let's decide this new year 2013 that we should not wait to do that to all our loved ones, yes? We should never presume on God that we will have tomorrow, so live today the way He would have you to and express your love and gratitude to those that mean so much to you - I'm going to try, how about you?

I hope you know that the crafts I share with you, though they are for my business, is simply stuff that I enjoy doing and hope you do, too.  This month is designated by the powers that be to be National Papercrafting Month and
 Close To My Heart's special is geared for Valentine's Day , and any other "love"-filled day!

 "Whoo's Your Valentine" is a great kit, available through January 31st, for only $10 with a $35 order, while supplies last.  You get 12 die-cut boxes ready to be stamped and decorated, matching cardstock papers (including a sneak peek to our new 12x12 GILTTER papre!!) plus 12 treat tubes (also New Product!!)  to fill with whatever you choose!  At the end I've posted a video all about it. but here are some more samples and the complete kit contents (from a fellow consultant's blog):

December 2012 Constant Campaign: National Papercrafting Month: Whooo’s Your Valentine?

Here's the cute and versatile stamp set that comes in the kit:

There's also this month's Stamp of the Month - a match for loving occasions, too -  called "Happy Valentine's" ... love the flourishes and the roses!

Both of these month's specials not only complement each other but one helps you get closer to the other one. By purchasing about $40 of any products from the current Idea Book you would qualify to get BOTH these specials for an additional $15 .... that would be $97 worth of products for just $55 - and some great products useful for so many occasions! I hope you can take advantage of this great sale - please contact me with any questions you may have... now here's the video I told you about...

As always ... making memories with you,
