This is such an EXCITING time, for us Close To My Heart fans!!
 Our NEWEST Idea Book was just released on August 1st and we as consultants have so much to SHARE with YOU!!!!

Today, I chose to share with you a NEW product line from CTMH!!  It is called “Jeanette’s Stamp Archive”.  J

As an Extravaganza teacher at this past June’s annual CTMH Convention, I was privileged to receive new item to work with prior to anyone else!  What fun!! 

In my package, I received this ADORABLE stamp set called “Stitched with Love and I recognized this stamp set as one of Jeanette Lynton’s handrawn designs from the D.O.T.S. years!  D.O.T.S. was the 1st name of this company and it stood for “Dozens Of Terrific Stamps”  This stamp set includes a little girl Rachel, and was drawn in honor of Jeanette’s daughter! 

I used one of our NEW paper packs….Huntington , but chose to create my own BACKGROUND by using the stamped images in this set for the top part of my card!

The frame around Rachel, was cut from our NEW Artbooking Cricut cartridge…I used the "2 of a kind" Key on page 78 of booklet and cut the frame by using the "REAL DIAL SIZE" button and setting my measurement to 3.1.

and I also chose to use our Fabulous NEW Stitch Guide to create the 2 hearts on the bottom right of the card. I love the extra touch this brings to Rachel on this card!

I used our watercolor pencils & blending pen to color in Miss Rachel...any tips you’d like to share with me would be wonderful!! J

Take a moment to check out ALL of the stamp sets in Jeanette’s stamp Archive!!  There is a total of 5 different sets…and  these stamp images will take you down memory lane. J You may have these stamp sets in the wood design…how WONDERFUL that we can now get them in clear acrylic…AND at the fraction of the cost we once paid!!! J

Enjoy viewing more of the NEW products just released from CTMH.
