My Virtual Open House is here, and September is full of specials!

I'm super excited to share my first ever Virtual Open House of the new products and samples from the Autumn/Winter Close To My Heart Idea Book. In my video I give an invaluable overview of the new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, share beautiful project samples, tips and techniques and feature details on the September Stamp of the Month and the National Stamping Month campaign called "You Are My Happy." So if you have about 37 minutes, please take a moment to check it out here...

September begins National Stamping Month in the crafting world and Close To My Heart is celebrating with a wonderful campaign called "You Are My Happy."

This adorable stamp set trio is only $10 with any qualifying CTMH purchase of at least $50 or more, September 1 - 30th only.

If you viewed the video, you already saw my samples. If not, here are a few fun cards I created...

The September Stamp of the Month is called "Poster Tidings" and can be yours for only $5 with any qualifying purchase of at least $50 or more. YES! That means if you spend $50 or more, you not only qualify for the "You Are My Happy" promotion for $10, you also qualify for the Stamp of the Month for only $5 too!

I used CTMH's new Designed Decor Flip Stand Album to create this piece...

(That's me hiking in New Hampshire.)

It was easy to create the colored words and phrases.

I stamped the big fall stamp six times in different Fall colors. Then cut each column of words at 2 1/2" wide, then sliced through the words line by line and then put them back together again, mixing the colors around. To keep it interesting, I popped up a few of the big words with foam tape. If you watch the video, you'll get a closer look.

Don't miss out on the September Specials this month. Shop with me starting September 1st through the 30th for these great deals!

Thanks and enjoy your holiday weekend!
