August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! (Framed S1508)

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Framed S1508

You should have just arrived here from

LELA's BLOG.

 I created this standard-size card using the 
"Framed" Stamp of the Month
and our all-NEW Zoe paper collection!
To achieve the stamped sentiment I stamped it three times
in different colors of ink (Black, Sorbet, and Sweet Leaf)
and then paper-pieced it together.
Embellished with our NEW Coral Shimmer Trim (Z3088)
and NEW Enamel and Glitter Duos Green Triangles (Z3123).

I also used our NEW Artistry Cricut Collection (Z3167)
to cut (at 1.5") the layered flower and leaves!
You can learn more about the New Artistry Collection
that is available for purchase now by clicking (HERE!)

Here is a peek at the NEW Zoe paper collection (X7197B)
and it's coordinating Complements (X7197B)
that includes 2-6x6 sticker sheets,
Vellum elements, and Kraft printed die-cuts.
These are also available to order now:

Finally, here is a view of all of the images included
in this Stamp Set that is available now:

(...and notice how I added labels to my stamp set that indicate the coordinating
sizes for each shape that can be cut with the NEW Cricut Artistry cartridge!!)
 
Now you can continue on with the hop
and be inspired by more creative ideas
using this stamp set by visiting 
MICHELLE's BLOG next.
Enjoy the hop!!

Retirement List - Items available only While Supplies Last!

An EASY way to see all of the available
"Retiring Items" now, is to simply CLICK HERE!

Anything that has been crossed off the list (below) has SOLD OUT already. Sorry!
If there's something that has sold out that you still really want/need, please let me know asap,
as it is still likely that I may have it available in my stash of products that I can sell to you!

All A-E stamp sets listed (that are not part of any WOTG kits) are guaranteed to remain available to order until August 31st, 2015. CTMH manufactures our stamps at the Home Office and can therefore continue to make enough to meet the demand for them.

Also, please note that any item (including some of the retiring colors of cardstock, ink pads, and re-inkers especially) may not show up as available to purchase online from my website temporarily (www.StampwithJen.ctmh.com) IF the items are on back-order due to the high demand for them. These temporarily unavailable items are still expected to show up online again as "available to order" as soon as CTMH has them back in stock from the manufacturer.

Lastly, the inclusion of the Cricut items on this list does NOT mean that the cartridges are being discontinued! The dimensional elements only that came with the collections are being discontinued and the Cricut cartridges will now be packaged with cardstock instead, thus a new product number will be required starting September 1st. That is the reason they are listed here. The cartridges continue to be and will absolutely remain available!

Color changes, Open House, and Online Ordering Announcements!!

Okay, so I am home from the Close to my Heart annual Convention
and there are so many exciting new things to tell you about,
I hardly know where to begin!!
 
I think it's probably best to start revealing things gradually
and one at a time, so here is my first announcement...
there are some big changes coming to our
Exclusive Color palette!
7 NEW Colors are being added to
the Enchantment Color family!
This means that 7 of our current colors have to go:
 
At first, I wasn't thrilled about this change because I
love our current colors so much, BUT...
when you see the new colors you are gonna LOVE
them too! I was completely "Wow"ed by them!
 
The new colors names are:
Eggplant, Fern, Peacock, Pomegranate,
Poppy, Saffron, and Sapphire!
 
...but if you want to SEE them before September 1st
you will want to plan to join me for my
NEW Catalog Reveal Open House
on Friday, August 7th (7-9pm)!
More details will be coming soon, but for now...
Please SAVE THE DATE!
 
I do anticipate that the ink pads, cardstocks,
(and re-inkers especially!) may sell out quickly,
so if you are a collector of these items
you won't want to wait to order them now!!
 
Online orders can be placed with me at:
and I will be mailing/giving away FREE new Idea Books
(including the NEW Holiday Expressions!)
starting August 24th to anyone who places any size
online order with me in July or August!
Don't forget to take advantage of the "Jump on it July"
promotion while you're visiting my online shopping
section, and there are quite a few new additions to the 
"while supplies last" section also! :)

My Crush Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by
to enjoy our "Summer Crush" Blog Hop
featuring a variety of consultant-made items
utilizing our beautiful collection of
"My Crush" scrapbooking products!

If you've just arrived here from TRACI's BLOG
then you are on the correct path.

Today I'm sharing two pages I created
using the My Crush Wildwood Book (Z2001)
with its coordinating Assortment (Z2040),
Clips (Z2047), and Sticky Tabs (Z2041).

These two 7" x 10" pages feature a few of my
favorite photos of my husband Jose
when our kids were still small.
I just started working on filling this album
(as a Father's Day gift!)
with photos of him that tell his story
and all of the things that we LOVE about him!


Here is a photo I took of the Wildwood Book and
it's coordinating products in an attempt to show you how beautiful the glossy printed designs are on it's front cover (photos just don't do it justice!!):

Now you can continue on with the hop
and be inspired by more creative ideas

TERRIE's BLOG next.
Enjoy the hop!!

May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Just Sayin' S1505

If you've just arrived here from MARIA's BLOG
then you are on the correct path.

I created this simple standard size card using a piece of glacier B&T duos from the "Blossom" paper pack X7196B (but with the "Jackson" X7195B color scheme - Barn Red, Cocoa, and Juniper inks). The sparkly flowers were punched from small scraps of White Shimmer Trim Z3024 with a very tiny flower punch I own (non-ctmh). Then I used bitty brads (retired) and Bitty Sparkles Z1263 to embellish the flower centers. Finished it off with a little bit of free-hand doodling using a black journaling pen Z1979.

Here is a view of all of the stamp images
included in this set that is available for purchase now:

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G News!!! (and the April 18th Card Class!)

I'm so CRAZY thrilled
that I just can't contain my excitement any longer...
 Close to my Heart corporate called me (yes, me!!)
this week to ask if I would take on a special assignment to
"Create for Convention" using all-new products for 2015-16!
Of course, I said "YES!!"
***
The job requires that I sign a "confidentiality agreement"
since I will be using "top-secret" new CTMH products. I will be keeping all of my artwork and the new product I'm using under wraps until it can be unveiled at the annual Convention for consultants (held July 9-11, 2015
at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, California)!

I am just BURSTING with joy
about this opportunity!!
THANK YOU CTMH for noticing me and my love for sharing creativity
...I am so THRILLED and READY for this!!

If you are a consultant on my team, there is still time to
register for Convention and join us in just 84 more days
at "the Happiest Place on Earth"
for three full days of creativity and fun!!
If you're not a consultant on my team, there's still time to
JOIN NOW and go with me for this magical event!
Enroll to be a consultant with me here:
http://stampwithjen.ctmh.com/ctmh/what-we-do/be-a-consultant.aspx
and/or call me with all of your questions about Convention and Consulting!
