"Free To Be Me" National Scrapbooking Month Campaign

Hello all. Happy Monday! I've spent the morning patiently waiting on the ATT guy to install U-Verse in our home. That meant no internet for a few hours, which left me plenty of time to snap photos of a fun project to share with you. I'm happy to announce he's gone and I'm back online and ready to tell you all about Close To My Heart's National Scrapbooking Month campaign: "Free To Be Me."

Here's the scoop: During the entire month of May, when you spend at least $50 or more with your Close To My Heart consultant, you qualify for the exclusive "Free To Be Me" paper collection for only $5. Not only that, CTMH fans also know when you spend $50 or more, you qualify for the Stamp of the Month for only $5 as well. YES! Both the promotion and the stamp of the month are only $5 each!

Here's what comes in the fantastic Free To Be Me collection:

• 6 - Free To Be Me B&T Duo's Papers (pattern paper)
• 2 - UV-coated, Designed Teal Card Stock Sheets (pattern with resist surface)
• 2 - UV-coated, Designed Red Card Stock Sheets (pattern with resist surface)
• 2 - UV-coated, Designed Gold Card Stock Sheets (pattern with resist surface)
• 1 - White Feather Print Vellum Sheet
• 1 - Gold Foil Polka-dot Vellum Sheet

So what can YOU do with this fun and fabulous paper collection?

A. Close To My Heart has provided consultants with a PDF link for our qualifying customers which includes a 12-page Workshop guide showing how to make two great 2-page layouts and three fun cards. Once you've placed your qualifying order with me, I'll shoot you the PDF file!


B. I have personally designed a 5" x 7" fun, interactive mini album using almost every bit of the paper collection. Once you've placed your order with me, I'll not only send you MY pdf directions, but I'll also send you the necessary baker's twine and tiny adhesive pearls FREE.

This album was inspired by Heidi Swapp's back-to-back book binding mini album and includes fun pocket pages, side slots, tags, and even more interactive fun. To make your album exactly like mine, there are a few added materials you'll need. (This may help you in deciding what you need when placing your $50 minimum order.) 

To make your mini album just like mine, you'll need:

• Two sheets of White Daisy card stock
All The Details stamp set
2" x 3 1/2" acrylic block
Lagoon ink pad
Hollyhock ink pad
Pear ink pad
Goldrush ink pad
Twilight ink pad

It will also be helpful to have a corner rounder, a few circle punches, and a basic hole punch in addition to your regular crafting tools and adhesives.

Of course, you can make the album using the paper collection without ordering the stamp set or any additional supplies. Simply use any stamps you desire or stickers and make it your own design.

There are 10 spreads total, but here are a few photos to show some of the pages.
