Through the Year

Hello & Happy Thursday! I can’t believe that here in the US, we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving in just two short weeks! Holy crow – guess I need to get a turkey (lol – my brain didn’t make that connection until just now!). Today I’d like to share with you the November Stamp of the Month – Through the Year.

This stamp set is perfect for some Year in Review layouts (I don’t think I would be able to get a full year in review on just 2 double paged 12 x 12s!) I love what CTMH has done with this —>

Here’s a (partial) year in review layout –

You can use this set on your desk calendar to add birthday and other fun reminders.  I think these next pictures show my favorite use for this stamp set – AND it gives you a sneak peak of the December monthly special!

This calendar set will be available next month. Since it uses the November Stamp of the Month – the kit will be available with or without the stamp set. However, next month the stamp set will be at full retail ($17.95) instead of the Stamp of the Month discount (just $5 with a $50 purchase).

You can find all the products used in these pictures on my website – gerri.closetomyheart.com – you won’t find the calendar kit until 1 December – but there’s lots more fun to be found over there!

Enjoy!

School Year SOTM

It’s that time of year again – the kids are heading back to school. We have the perfect stamp set for your back to school crafting needs!

School Year

I love that this set touches on both the first & last day of school (I have visions of one day creating a layout showing pictures of my boys’ on their first & last days).

This set is also great for teacher gifts and cards.

I’m thinking maybe this card is better suited for parents than kids! I used a design from the Miss You cardmaking Workshops Your Way kit. The background piece and ink are Peacock and the hearts are stamped in Ruby.  The patterned B&T paper is from the Jack collection. Here are the dimensions for the pieces:

  • Peacock cardstock – 3 x 5
  • Ruby diagonal plaid – 3 x 4 1/4
  • Whisper cardstock (retired) – 2 1/4 x 3 1/4
  • White Daisy cardstock – 2 x 3

Here’s a great layout from the CTMH artists

If you’re sending your kids back to school – I hope you take some time to enjoy the last few weeks you have with them before they start a new chapter!

Enjoy!
