CTMH--- August SOTM Blog Hop- Something Splendid

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for August 2010!

All artwork on the hop will feature August's SOTM- Something Splendid  a set of 13 stamps! If you have come here from Carol's Blog you are on the right path!

This month we have 70 CTMH Consultants sharing their SOTM creations, and other great CTMH artwork. Hopping along is fun and simple to do - just click the link at the end of each blogger's post to move to the next one!

This month I have Layout to share using the Splendor Kit.  This layout is a lift of FancyMelissa's that I've saved for a while.  Its also a sketch from Creative Scrappers.  I LOVE how the pictures and patterns are positioned along an 8 1/2x11 sheet of cardstock.  I used a couple of the sentiments from Something Splendid along with the large flower stamp.
The flower is stamped using the 2-step method.  I had a great time mixing and matching colors for this stamp, using the Splendor colors!
There is a sneak peak of NEW PRODUCT on this layout too..... BLUE & GREEN SPARKLES!  

All CTMH unless noted
Splendor Level 2

Honestly, I've never used CTMH products, but after browsing the online idea book, I think that this (the idea book itself) is my favorite product so far! There are some CUTE layouts in there that I'd like to lift!! There is a bunch of cute papers I liked and I also liked alot of the stamps, but sadly, I'm horrible at stamping. :(

I just joined your mailing list too!

If you wanna know how you can go and experience a Convention room full of thousands of screaming women, free product, great entertainment and more...Contact me today to join my Close To My Heart Team!! Ya IS the happiest place on earth!! :o)

It's super easy!! Here's how you can join me at Close To My Heart's 2011 Convention at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, California in July.

The first step is to contact me and become a Close To My Heart Consultant!! You already love to scrapbook or make cards so why not get a discount doing it?? You only need to sell $300 a quarter (3 months--- that's an average of $100 a month) to earn a 22% discount. But what if you don't want to 'sell' just want to get all of our wonderful stamps, papers, ink pads, etc. at a discount...well you can be a hobbyist too. You only need to place 1 order a year...yes, that's right...only 1 order per year and you will get 10% off everything you buy!! AWESOME!!

Once you join my 'Roxybonds Scrappers' team you are then eligible to sign up for Convention. The Dollars To Disney payment plan allows you to pay for Convention registration, Leadership Day registration (for Managers and above) and any other add-ons including the new Convention Product Credit in monthly payments instead of all at once, which means a stress free happy ending!! Sign up during registration and have payments withdrawn automatically on the 5th of each month. You don’t need a magic wand to make this dream come true, simply select from one of our four payment options to find the perfect fit.

9 Month

3 Month
This plan offers the ultimate flexibility. You can still have the benefit of breaking the fee into manageable monthly payments even after the holidays have been paid for, you sign a new recruit, or find yourself able to attend a little later in the game. Enroll between August 3, 2010 through February 20, 2011*. Your first payment will be made at the time of registration with the remaining payments being withdrawn from your account on the 5th of each month, for 2 months following your registration date. Your final payment must be made on April 5, 2011.

Pay In Full
This plan allows you to make one easy payment and have your Convention registration complete! Available August 3, 2010 through May 13, 2011*.

*Convention registration will be open from August 3, 2010 – May 13, 2011 or until space is full.

Convention Product Credit
Would you love purchasing brand new product from the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book at incredible discounts at Convention? Well Hakuna Matata, because corporate made it easier than ever to stash money away so you can shop ‘til you drop once you get to Convention with absolutely no worries. During Registration, you can choose to add Convention Product Credit to your enrollment in the payment plans offered. Select from increments of $100, $250, or $400 and when you arrive at Convention, the money will be available to use for purchasing the new product bundles in our online store! It’s a dream come true.

CTMH--- Studio J Layouts + Updates!

I cannot say enough good things about CTMH's Studio J online scrapbooking! I had a demo last night of this program with some of my customers and they were so impressed by it. The patterns are awesome, there are so many paper kits to choose from (even retired ones) and the possibilities are endless with this program.

CTMH has made some updates to Studio J that are effective NOW!
*Photo editing- red eye, blemishes, glare
*New patterns to choose from
*Added cardstock colors to each kit
*Added full color palette to choose from for all embellishments.
*REDUCED SHIPPING- from $7.95 to $5.95 (10 layouts or more is still FREE)

Did you know that you can put a PHOTO into any JOURNALING well? OR vice versa- put JOURNALING into any PHOTO well???

Did you know that you can line up your embellishments easily using the snapping on tool? Create borders with stitching, staples, or brads.

Did you know you can create your own frames using the borders (in the stickease)?

Did you know you can create vertical titles both with the STICKEASE and FONTS?

So many cool things you can do with Studio J- an always, Faster, Simpler, Easier!!!!!

This layout uses the Daydream Paper Kit. I rotated the page on the right to fit my pictures better. I created 2 title boxes in order to mix and match font and print color in "Meeting the Princesses"

I am starting to create my Calendars for 2011 using Studio J!!!!!
If you recall, I created traditional scrapbooked calendars for myself (and the grandparents) for both 2009 and 2010. Creating them on Studio J will allow me to embellish them like crazy, but still be flat. AND I will only have to do the work ONE TIME, then print them out three times.

January: I used Notebook for these layouts. The Calendar page will the the Left Side and the right side will just go in my album.

Starting in September, you can get a STUDIO J MEMBERSHIP!!!!!!
As a member you will get:
*50% off each layout!
*FREE Jpegs of your layouts (after you purchase)--- this is how I will then print additional copies of the Calendar Pages!!
*FREE shipping! Up to 20 pages, once a month
*FREE page protectors for EACH layout!

CTMH--- Zippidee Layouts

Zippidee is the 4th and Final Paper pack in the Summer Idea Book that I'm working with. CTMH certainly did NOT disappoint this Summer. All 4 packs (Cherry-O, Splendor, Passages and Zippidee) have been super fun to work with.

When I saw Zippidee in the Idea Book, it was used primarily with Disney photos. And of course I have a TON of those from our trip to Disneyland last month.
BUT- I also saw a great use for it with T-ball and even 4th of July. See how versatile it can be??!!

These layouts are from my son's T-ball season. I used the additional Kit of the Month layouts as a guide for these, although I deviated quite a bit. I used the In the Game- Baseball stamp set to complete the T-ball/baseball feel!

All CTMH unless noted:
Zippidee Level 2
Fancy Fuzz borders
Dimensional Elements Stars
In the Game- Baseball
Building Block Alpha
Cranberry, Honey, Black ink
Martha Stewart Punch

Stay tuned for more Zippidee with DISNEY pics!

The Zippidee Kit of the Month Playgroup will be August 15th and I will post that soon :) Until then, you can order your own HERE

CTMH--- Passages Workshop Layouts

Here are the scrapbook layouts I created with the Passages Kit of the Month! I don't often deviate too much from the sketch provided, simply because the sketches are awesome!

I thought the Passages papers were perfect for a Father's Day theme! The nice thing about these kits is I had already decided to use these pages for Father's day, so I knew "what kind" of pictures I needed, what size and what orientation. Some call it staging, I call it careful planning ;)

Here is my hubby with my darling babies! I think I will have him journal (maybe he'll even write in himself- that would be cool!)

All CTMH unless noted
Passages Level 2
Building Block Alpha
Cocoa Ribbon Round
Pewter Mini Medley
Circle Punch
Cocoa, Brown Bag Ink

You can get this Passages Kit and create this same layout yourself! ORDER HERE

CTMH--- Picture This Layout!

For the Close To My Heart Convention last week, I created these layouts for my roomies! I wanted them to have a nice page to put some of their favorite convention photos on (like one of the 4 of us).

There is no stamping on this layout (although we did get a stamp set at Convention that would create that logo that I printed out off the Convention website
I just LOVE the little lollipop flowers at the bottom of the first page- so easy and yet so cute! Just punch out circles, crumple them to distress, then layer and use a brad or button in the center. Your circles can be different sizes or all the same size, then hand manipulated to whatever shape you desire.
Another cool thing I did was created a "suede" look on the bottom of my twilight cardstock on the second page. I did that by rubbing my stamp pad directly onto the paper. This is a neat technique, gives plain ol' cardstock just enough distressing.

All CTMH unless noted
Twilight, Vineyard berry, Cocoa cardstock
Emporium Level 2
Vineyard Berry Ribbon
Antique Copper brads
Cocoa brads
Reflections patterns: Bottom Border, Quartet

CTMH-- Customer Spotlight!

I love handmade cards. If someone makes me a card, I save it! I know how much work goes into it and I so appreciate it!
I get cards from some of my customers each month and I've saved a few to share with you :)

How cute are all these????

This card uses only cardstock and one stamp set: Ticket to Ride. The cardstock colors are the colors of CTMH's Convention: Twilight, Cocoa, Sunflower, Sweet Leaf and Vineyard Berry. Ticket to Ride is the stamp set available ONLY in the Zippidee Kit of the Month. (Which I'll feature in August!) On this card, I also used our new Circle Punch and corner rounder (to make scallops).

Route To Good Times

All CTMH unless noted:
Cardstock: Twilight, Sunflower, Sweet Leaf, Cocoa, Vineyard Berry

CTMH Convention is July 8-10 in Washington DC. I head out tomorrow morning and will attend a special Leadership Day on the 7th!

Check back next week for updates, pictures and SNEAK PEAKS of all the NEW and EXCITING things that Close to My Heart has in store for the fall!
