A Very Merry Christmas & A FREE layout!

Today I wanted to tell you about 2 great specials for the month of October.  The first one is the October Stamp of the Month-Very Merry Christmas.  I love this set for holiday card making, especially since many of the shapes coordinate with the new Cricut Artiste cartridge which makes it so much quicker and easier to create a large number of holiday cards in no time at all!  This stamp set is available during the month of October for just $17.95 or ONLY $5 with a $50 purchase.  Here's a look at the images included in this stamp set.

Last week I had some time to sit down and create a couple of items using this stamp set. The card and tags were both created using the Cricut Artiste and Art Philosophy Cartridges.  I love how quick & easy it is to pre-cut your desired shapes, stamp on them and adhere them to your project.  I also used the Pear & Partridge Papers, Clear and Brown & Tan Sparkles, Harvest Bakers Twine, Tan Twill Ribbon (included in the Workshop on the Go Card Kit) and Green Brad Asst. 

Up next is the Studio J special for October, Buy 9 layouts-Get 1 FREE! If you haven't tried Studio J yet, head on over to my website and check it out!  It's super easy to upload your photos, choose your kit, page design and create fabulous looking layouts in minutes.  There's even a new Express Collection where the pages are already designed for you.  You just simply upload your photos, add a title and journaling and call it good!  Oh, and did I mention it's totally FREE to try it out!  You create your layouts and decide which ones you would like to purchase.  Close To My Heart prints them out for you and ships them directly to your door.  It doesn't get any easier than that!   

October is the month to save on Studio J® layouts. In this special promotion, when you buy 9 Studio J layouts, you’ll get another custom-printed layout for free! It’s the perfect opportunity to use any Member Bonus layouts you may have on your Studio J account, or to try this fast and easy online software for the first time. The discount is automatically applied to your cart when you order 10 or more layouts. You can get up to 4 free layouts with this fantastic promotion! So what are you waiting for?
