Ready.....Set.......Hop! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

It's here! Close To My Heart's monthly Stamp of the Month blog hop! This month's stamp set is "Tender Tags", pictured here. It consists of several styles of frilly tags with flourishes, plus "tag words" (to, from, etc.).....15 stamps in all. It's gorgeous, dahling!

If you have come here from Adeline's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Jena's Blog and start from the beginning!

This month we have 42 (wowza!) Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using June's Stamp of the Month and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

When I first saw this stamp set, I thought that a couple of the tags looked like flower petals. So I used three different tags to decorate this little purse, made from a white paper lunch bag. I love to make these! I suppose it is more of a gift bag than a purse. I have been hoarding my "Key To My Heart" paper (CTMH's January Constant Campaign, if I recall). It is just about the most beautiful paper i have ever seen. As a matter of fact, my sister Teresa, who does not even scrapbook (yet...mawh ha ha!!!) thought about ordering it 'cause it is so very beautiful! Her birthday is today (Happy Birthday, Sis!), so I may just sneak some of this paper over to her house after all!

RECIPE (all products CTMH):
Paper: Key To My Heart, Tulip Cardstock
Stamp Set: Tender Tags
Ink: Sorbet, Tulip, Juniper
Other: Colonial White Ricrac, Tulip Brads, Fancy Cuts Botanicals (Juniper Flourish), Connections Club Charm

Now "Hop" on over to Chris' Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the June SOTM is only available until June 30th! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

WAIT! Before you leave, though, let me tell you about CTMH's Daily Deals for the month of June! The Deals start today at 11:00 a.m. EST, 9:00 a.m. MT.

There will be two different types of “deals” offered every day on MyCTMH websites through this exciting promotion:

Receive a free item with a qualifying purchase. On 24 of the 30 days in June, you can receive a specially-selected current product absolutely free (tax does apply on free items in the US) when you purchase a My Acrylix® stamp set, size A, B, C, D, or E (excluding Stamp of the Month, customized or K-size sets, and Art & Soul featured stamp sets). The free product will change daily and there can be only one free item per order. Shoppers will also save big on shipping when orders meet all Deal-a-Day guidelines.

Receive 50% off or more on “Great Goodies” boxes. On 6 of the 30 days in June, you can purchase a “mystery” box filled with “Great Goodies.” Contents will vary by box and include both current and retired favorite stamp sets, paper packs, embellishments, and other great products. The six “Great Goodies” boxes will all have different pricing of at least 50% off retail, with some at even deeper discounts! Note that we have made every effort to differentiate the 6 “Great Goodies” options so you can purchase boxes on different dates and receive a wide variety of differing products! No qualifying purchase is required on the days a “Goodies” box is the deal; discounted shipping is also available when orders meet all Deal-a-Day guidelines.

Deals will be available for 23 hours each day. Quantities are plentiful, so save yourself some frustration and shop later in the day, rather than early when the sites may be jammed. I can't wait to see what is available! What a great way to get more for your money in this economy, right?

So set your alarm to check out your consultant's website every day. If you don't have a consultant, you're invited to shop on mine here.
