Welcome to our monthly

We're excited to share our creativity with you using PRODUCTS
from Close To My Heart!!

Come on in and see what BEAUTIFUL projects my fellow consultants have creating using the AMAZING products from Close To My Heart!!

 This blog hop is easy to do…just click on the link at the end of the post to go to the next creation!!  If you get lost along the way, CLICK HERE to see the list of this month’s hoppers! 

If you have arrived from Betty's blog you are right on track.

If you've been following my blog, you may have noticed that I'm doing a blog series on "retiring soon" that's a little bit of background of the card I'm sharing with you today. :) 

Let's take a look at this card below, that uses a BUNCH of items that will be retiring on December 31st. 

This card was one we created at a Home Gathering and a simple but beautiful one to create!! I got my inspiration from a fellow consultant, and I'm sorry I forget who it was...but thank you! 

Take note on the picture above- we were even able to emboss the flap of the envelope with the snowflakes embossing folder! :) 

We used our NEW Thin Cut bundle......Z4015- Woodland Wishes Thin Cut Bundle.   
This BUNDLE is available at a DISCOUNTED price because it's a BUNDLE!!!

It's only $26.95 for the D-size stamp set & metal die cuts!! (The stamp set be purchsed by itself for $17.95 - D1696) 

This 5x7 Snowflake Embossing Folder will be leaving us at the end of December too.  This beautiful folder is ONLY $8.95 & has a special feature!!  

There is a 4" "slit" in the hinged part of the embossing folder.  This allows you to emboss a 12" strip of paper!  I LOVE this added feature that CTMH 5x7 embossing folders bring to us! :) (and yes, 5x7 is a LARGER size than most embossing folders out there. ;) ) 

On this close up photo - you'll notice that there is a bit of "shimmer" taking place on this card too. :)  

I ADORE our new Shimmer brush - and this is ONE item that won't be retiring at the end of this month!  Yay!!  

However, if you don't have one of these fabulous tools already, you may just want to add that to you next purchase.  It adds so much, and is only $4.95!!  

Stay tuned to my blog as I feature MORE products that will be retiring in the next few days!!  

That's all for today....thanks for stopping by, and I hope you were inspired to ready to go CREATE something on your own! 

Now it’s time to Hop on over to Jen's  blog and see what beautiful, crafty item she has to share with us!  

Happy Hopping and we’ll see you on the 9th next month, when the Joyful Stars team members will be sharing more artwork using Close To My Heart products!    

Blessings to you for BEAUTIFUL day!!!
