Welcome to the Bear Hugs Stamp of the Month Blog Hop where we will be featuring the July Bear Hugs stamp set. If you have come here from Gina Brandstetter’s blog, you are on the right path! When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog. This blog hop is simple, fun, and full of artwork created by some very talented consultants. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.
For this project, I decided to use our Fancy Tags Thin Cuts along with our True Love papers to create a sweet and simple card that I plan on sending to a friend who is currently going through a rough patch. Unfortunately, I am going to have to keep this blog post short due to the fact that my laptop keyboard is currently on the fritz. You can see here that I used the Circle Tag thin cut to create a window for the two bear images. I used another Tag Thin Cut for the sentiment.
The flower border and individual flowers were cut from Sugarplum cardstock using the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts. I added some Gold Embellishing Thread, Gold Glitter Gems, a Gold Arrow Clip, and Bitty Sparkles too finish it off.
Now ‘Hop” on over to Darlys Recker’s blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas. Remember, the Bear Hug stamp set is only available until July 31st. Contact your CTMH Consultant, or visit the Promotions tab of my website to see how you can get this stamp set for only $5.00.
♥ I can’t wait to see what you create!
Forgetfulness: absent minded and loss of memory. This squirrel brained, coffee drinking mama is constantly forgetting things like checking-out BEFORE a sale is over, or signing up for a class I wanted to take BEFORE the due date, or how many chocolate eggs I just ate while typing this post. Sound familiar?
Before you try to remember what you might have forgotten, let me help you out with a few end-of-the month reminders.
♥APRIL SALES & SPECIALS♥
We have FIVE amazing specials this month that you may have glanced over and said “Oh! I need that” then ran to chase a beast through your house who just ate something they shouldn’t. Sooo…before the beast returns, here is a quick run-down.
- You can create some adorable spring projects using the delightful Zoe paper pack and matching 12″ x 12″ sticker sheet, coordinating cardstock, and stamp set.
- Get ahead on your gift-making and purchase our TWO sweet little mini-album kits. These make the perfect gift for Mother’s or Father’s Day. (or just buy them because you need a quick, easy album to complete and feel accomplished.)
- If you have been eyeing some new home decor, you can still get the Home Monogram Kit.
- How about a stamp set for $5.00!!! You can use the Love So Sweet Stamp set to create my Double Easel card. I video tutorial can be found in my VIP Facebook Group.
♥…AND DON’T FORGET♥
You only have FIVE DAYS LEFT to shop from the Seasonal Expressions One catalog. Those products are some that I have stocked up on – especially that Feels Like Home collection. It has been one of my favorites.
I hope you all are having a blessed week and..
♥I can’t wait to see what you create!
I can’t tell you how many times I have added products to my cart only to find out they are sold out, discontinued, or the specials have ended. I try not to cry in a corner and sulk over all the projects I “could have” made. With a month full of sales and specials, it is for that exact reason that I am sending out a quick recap of what you might miss – I would hate for you to end up in a corner with a pile of tissues and “could have’s”.
♥BOGO Paper Party♥
Buy any paper packet or coordinating cardstock this month and get another of equal or lesser value at 50% off! We’ve also created some bundles that pair each paper packet with its coordinating cardstock at the discounted price.
♥Pocket Card Celebration♥
Buy individual packs or choose the Pocket Card Celebration Bundle to get the 4 newest packs of pocket cards in one convenient bundle. Discover the fun and ease of pocket card memory keeping with Picture My Life™ cards!
Create the beautiful cards shown above using the exclusive Love Blossoms stamp set and workshop bundle. Not only will you get a set of 12 cards, but you’ll also have fun using stamps and embossing folders to decorate them.
WOW! What a month full of sales, specials, and inspiration. It’s almost maddening to know that the month is almost over, April will soon be here, and then everything in our Seasonal Expressions One catalog will be gone. How time flies?! I hope you take the time to check out each of these specials as well as the projects I created using each one of them. I always enjoy inspiring you to make something new.
