December "Special Care" stamp of the month

Links updated 12/4

Welcome to a BRAND NEW Stamp of the Month set by Close To My Heart!

If you're coming from Haley's blog you are headed in the right direction.  If you're just joining the hop here... no problem!  the next blog on the hop is linked at the end of this post.

I think this set would be PERFECT for scrapbooking, I just haven't printed photos in a while so I thought I'd give it a try for some Valentine's treats!  ok... I picked all the red and silver covered kisses from the Christmas variety and gave the green wrapped kisses to my kids... but you get the idea!

I paired the set with out fun glitter paper and some ruby ink.  Now... having some Hershey's hugs would have been perfect but... it was an after thought. 

This bottom photo shows the stamping with less glare

I hope you enjoyed this little treat idea for the December Stamp of the Month.
Now head on over to see what Maria has created.

Picture My Life- NEW PRODUCT ALERT and a way to earn a set FREE

I am THRILLED to show you a sneak peek of an upcoming line of products and share a way that YOU can earn one FREE!

When you join the Close To My Heart family from November 1st to December 15th and submit qualifying personal sales*, you’ll receive a stunning new product, the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program - FREE (retail value $24.95)! Select from eight darling themes, from vacation to friendship to childhood - each featuring 122 double-sided cards plus 10 unique Memory Protectors™ to capture it all. Picture it - then capture it!


What is the new Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program?  The eight new Picture My Life™ scrapbooking programs feature themes based on some of our most popular paper packets, plus two brand new paper packets. Each individual program features 122 double-sided, designed cards plus 10 unique Memory Protectors™ to hold creative combinations of these cards and your own photos. You get 44 – 4" × 6" cards (2 each of 22 designs) which come in 14 vertical and 8 horizontal designs. You also get 78 – 3" × 4" cards (3 each of 26 designs) which come in 10 vertical designs and 16 horizontal designs.

What makes the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program different from other card-style programs on the market?  Our product features unique Close To My Heart designs, specifically with Jeanette’s signature artistic influence. Many card programs are very simple patterns or solid colors, and our product offers a much more thoughtful approach to design, journaling options and prompts, headlines, and layered, graphical, illustrated or distressed style—each of the 8 kits really is a fresh take that is theme-rich and yet extremely versatile, not just color changing the same core designs. Additionally, our cards are printed on our Background and Texture-weight cardstock, heavier than similar programs on the market, which makes them easy to mix and match with coordinating cardstocks or papers. Our 12" × 12" cover page gives you a unique opening page to kick off your album and deliver a finished look, and our Memory Protectors™ remain the same heavy-weight, durable material you’ve come to depend on to protect your photos—absolutely the industry standard! 

How is the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program intended to be used? The product was designed to fill the 10 included Memory Protectors™ following a guideline of 50% photos to 50% cards (which will give you several different card options leftover to give users choice as they create their custom layout.) However, it’s just a fun and versatile product—you can use it any way you wish! If you use a higher ratio of photos, you can purchase additional Memory Protectors™ separately (all styles sold separately as well as part of the scrapbooking program); you can mix and match cards from different programs, and you can absolutely mix Picture My Life™ with classic 12" × 12" layouts, including those from Workshops on the Go™ and coordinating My Reflections™ paper packets. This program is meant to provide you with the ease of scrapbooking life’s moments as they happen. With adorable pre-designed cards featuring unique sentiments, icons, and journaling space, all you have to add is your own photo collection! The several themes can be mixed and matched for more versatility. The prompts on several of the cards will help you creatively journal, and the various assortments of Memory Protectors™ will make your finished products truly unique.

Will the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program be available for limited or unlimited preview by Consultants in January?  Beginning January 1, 2014, Consultants may preview the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program with a maximum of two per item number. Note, however, that the FREE Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program earned through this campaign will NOT affect that limit. If a new Consultant qualifies for a free program, they will receive it and still be able to purchase two more at its full retail value if they desire. Also note that it is anticipated that the Picture My Life™ Chantilly program will not be available until February 1.

When will the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program be available for purchase for both customers and Consultants?  The program will be available for purchase to everyone beginning February 1, 2014, the official release date of the Idea Book.
What is the retail price of a Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program going to be?
Each individual Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program will be available for $24.95.

What are the themes/kits that are available in the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program?
We have created six individual programs based on some of our most popular paper packets: Later Sk8tr (childhood/sports/boy), Laughing Lola (friendship/teen girls/free spirit), Babycakes (baby/youth/family), Avonlea (family/togetherness/love), Surf’s Up (vacation/travel/outdoors), and Chantilly (childhood/friendship/girl), and two based on brand new paper packets to be released in the February–July 2014 Idea Book.

Will the new Memory Protectors™ styles be available separately, or only as part of the Picture My Life™ scrapbooking program?  The new Memory Protectors™ will be available separately as well! They will come in several styles.
