Workspace Wonder Now Available!

The Close To My Heart warehouse just received the first shipment of the NEW Workspace Wonder organization products.  They are now available to order on my website.

September Specials

Create Kindness Card Kit
Celebrate National Stamping Month this September by making hand-stamped cards to create a little more kindness in the world! Our Create Kindness card kit contains all of the supplies you’ll need to create 24 beautiful handmade cards, which feature sentiments to brighten someone’s day! The kit can be yours for only $46.95 USD/$ 60.95 CAD —a 15% savings off the retail value! 
Thanks to the pre-printed card bases, these cards come together in no time, which makes it even easier to find time to do an act of kindness. Watch Close To My Heart’s blog, Instagram account, and Facebook page throughout the month of September to see what we’ve created with this card kit, as well as the acts of kindness it has inspired! This exclusive kit will only be available in the month of September or while supplies last, so make sure to get your order in early.  You can place your order HERE, on my website.
As a special bonus, the exclusive stamp sets and pre-printed card bases with envelopes can also be purchased separately so you can make as many cards as you’d like—but just like the card kit, they’re only available in the month of September while supplies last, so make sure to grab yours fast!

Here's what's included in the kit:
Z3106 My Acrylix® Mini Stamp Organizer 
CC1146 3" × 3" pre-printed card bases, envelopes, and pre-cut circles (24)
Y1003 2" × 2" My Acrylix® block
CC1147 My Acrylix® Create Kindness—Beautiful 
CC1148 My Acrylix® Create Kindness—Enjoy 
CC1149 My Acrylix® Create Kindness—Friend 
CC1150 My Acrylix® Create Kindness—Hello 
CC1151 My Acrylix® Create Kindness—Everything 
CC1152 My Acrylix® Create Kindness—Love 
CC1153 My Acrylix® Create Kindness—Smile 
CC1154 My Acrylix® Create Kindness—Special 
Mini Archival Black Exclusive Inks™ stamp pad
Here's a close up of the stamp sets included in the kit.  They are so cute and can easily be colored in with markers, watercolor pencils or watercolor paints.



I had fun creating with this kit.  I started by creating a set of the 3x3 cards included in the kit and added some cardstock from the Adventure color pallette.  These cards can be used for a variety of occasions and are great for attaching to a gift, leaving on a note on a desk or in a lunchbox, or to spread kindness & make someone's day!

I then wanted to use the pre-printed card bases on a standard size (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) card.  By simply cutting the pre-printed bases in half, you can create twice as many standard size cards.  For these 2 cards I added some papers from the Adventure Fundamentals pack (Z3253), Adventure Ribbons (Z3286) and Silver Sequins (Z2013).  I used the NEW Happy Thoughts Embossing Folder (Z3249) for the card on the right and the NEW Thin Cuts-Hearts (Z3260) on the left.

But then I took it one step further and created a one-page layout using one of stamp sets along with the Adventure Fundamentals papers (Z3253), Good Life Complements (Z3264), NEW Thin Cuts-Stars (Z3261) and Celebrate (Z3256), Grey Enamel Gems (Z3089) and Picture My Life Journaling Cards (Z3278).  So you see, the Create Kindness Card Kit isn't just for cardmaking.  It can be used for scrapbooking too!

This kit is a great value at $46.95 and only available during September or while supplies last!

Also availabe in September is the Stamp of the Month-Blessed Beyond Measure.  It can be yours for only $5 with a $50 purchase.  I absolutely LOVE this set for Fall.  The outlined images below coordinate with the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge.

All of your favorite fall products, the Create Kindness Card Kit and the September Stamp of the Month can be found on my website RIGHT HERE.  Feel free to contact me with any questions.
