Today's the last day you can place an order from the Close to My Heart January "Inspirations" mini catalog. (I have a short grace period at the beginning of February, so if you are reading this after the 31st, please email me right away and I'll see if I can sneak your order in.)
This mini catalog is one of my favorite releases CTMH has ever had. The stamps and papers are GORGEOUS. You can view the catalog here: http://liveitloveitscrapit.myctmh.com/ (Click "View January Inspirations" in the bottom right.) For starters, look at these gorgeous papers from the Wings collection:
Now here's the deal. If you buy the Wings Workshop on the Go Kit (for $30), it opens up to you the possibility of getting crazy savings on the rest of the things in the mini catalog. Stamp sets are as low as $5. The GORGEOUS, new, Bohemian Alphabet (an E-size set, normally $35, see the "free as a bird" letters below) would only cost $25. But here's the best part. You know how you normally need to spend $100 to get the Stamp of the Month for free? If you buy the Wings Workshop on the Go Kit, plus 4 other different items from the mini catalog, you can get the stamp of the month set free.
This means for as low as $50 or so ($30 for the workshop kit plus 4 other items at $5 a piece), you get the free stamp set. LOVE THAT. It also helps that the Stamp of the Month is gorgeous. I got it for the butterfly alone, and LOVE having the bird and the shoe and everything else to go with it. You can see the stamps at http://liveitloveitscrapit.myctmh.com/. (Click on "Stamp of the Month, Find Your Style" in the upper right corner.)
Read the Inspirations Brochure carefully to make sure you don't miss out on any great deals. Please note, if you buy the Workshop kit, it includes the black accents collection, so you don't need to buy that separately. If you want to follow the workshop instructions exactly, you will also want to make sure you own the Vineyard Berry Reinker (Z2257, $4.25) and the Create a Shade Pearl Paint (Z1039, $2.95), neither of which are included in the kit. You can easily add these on to your order. You'll be making your own shimmer mist spray in the new and awesome spray pen (included in the workshop kit).
Come to think of it, you also need the Vineyard Berry Ink Pad (Z2157, $5.25) and the Black Ink Pad (Z2105, $5.25), but CTMH addicts like you probably already have those.
Starting tomorrow, CTMH's new 6-month catalog goes live. If you would like one, please email me and I would be happy to send you one.
