The Close To My Heart Summer 2015 Retiring List... Get Them Before They Are Gone

It is that time of year again!

Close To My Heart just released the list of retiring products, effective August 31, 2015 and it is LONG! I guarantee there are some goodies on here you might not yet have so I wanted to share the list with all of you. Once the items are sold out they will not be restocked so the early bird wins here.

Because the list is SOOOOO long, I have posted a direct link to my website where you can visually see each item that is on the list. To see them, visit Summer 2015 Retiring Items. Have fun looking at all the goodies that are being laid to rest. :) 

Here are just a few of my favorites... you really need to see the entire retiring list.

With a smile,

My Crush Books Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our My Crush Blog Hop!  We will be featuring the My Crush line of Books, Accessories and Stamp sets this month.   If you have come here from Melinda's Blog, you are on the right path! 
The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  

So the reason for this fun blog hop is the fabulous special that CTMH is offering this month: 1 FREE coordinating stamp set for each My Crush Book & Accessory pack ordered. How fun it that. You can read all about this promotion on my site.

So to kick things off, we wanted to show you lots of artwork featuring these little gems. 

Today I decided to step outside of the box and use the pages of the My Crush book on a scrapbook page. The beauty of doing this is that it not only expands your paper line considerable, but you can also take a few pages out of the book without making a noticeable difference in the book... it can still be used as a scrapbook. Pretty cool.

And because that was so much fun, I then went on and created a card from a page out of the My Crush In The Pink book. The pages are 7 x 10" so I cut a 4.25 x 5.5 piece from the top for the back of the card. I then cut a piece at 4 x 5.25  to layer on it that had the design of the pages (the hearts and arrows and such). 

I wanted to use the stamp set (Glitter Glam) that came free from purchasing the book and accessory pack so I grabbed and stamed "Glitter Girl" right on the card layer piece, and then "Shine On" on a scrap from the page. With just a little edging with Cocoa ink and some 3D foam tape I had a quick, easy, 1 of a kind card. Check it out:
Here is a picture of the stamp set, called Glitter Glam, that they are offering for FREE this month with any purchase of a My Crush Book and accessory pack... and they are offering different stamp sets with EACH My Crush book purchase. Check them all out.
