We are moving the date of the next "Oh My Scraps"  CROP CLUB event. I have been ill this past month and to far behind. I am unable to hold it on our first scheduled date. I am so so sorry.
 But, I will be more prepared and have a lot of goodies and new techniques  in stamping, Cricut Expression Designing, and so many other little things you will want to know and share in your scrapbooks and art work. 
(since I have been able to lay around a little...I have learned a lot lately)

ALSO, the New 2012 Spring/Summer IDEA BOOK is here.
           All I can say is.......AWESOME!!!! 
(If you would like the new book now....Leave me a comment and we will get together)
 Close to My Heart has some fantastic new items for the crafter and scrapbooker in you!

 Please save the date. We will have an awesome time and my food treat for the day will be spectacular too!  
                  FEBRUARY 18, 2011
          10:00am to how ever long you can play that day. 
I think that's fair for everyone.  Also new attendees receive a gift for joining us on that day.
I still have a wonderful Door Prize... (valued at $25) 

We will be in Collierville, TN

PLEASE Leave me a COMMENT below to get more details and location. I will post a list for certain supplies/tools you may want to bring for your scrapbook pages as soon as I know how many of you are attending.

If you have never been to our Scrapbook event....Now's the time to make a little time for yourself. We always have a blast and the girl time is priceless. Lunch is provided by the Host for that month. 

I really do hope everyone can come play....We have had a very long break and I know there are several pictures still in cameras or laying in a box or drawer that need to be in a home.  So weather it be in a scrapbook, a block, or framed art...Lets start having some fun.   

    PLEASE RSVP BY Thursday, FEBRUARY 9th. 
I must know # of people for food, supplies/tools, and tables.
If you know anyone who may be interested in this event... Please feel free to pass my information along.  
Thank You!!!

January Stamp of the Month ~ ”A Little Reminder”

I read a quote recently "What you do on January 1st is what you will do all year." I spent the day creating in my room and in my head. I hadn't had an opportunity to play with Close To My Heart's January Stamp of the Month yet so I started there. I really like this set. It's versatile, practical & FUN. I like the bold stylish numbers and the cute little sentiments. I guess that's why it's called "Little Reminder." This exclusive set is available this month only (January 2012) and when you place an order of $50 or more it's only $5.

What a deal.

Or, you may purchase only in the month of

January for $17.95 US.

Check out the January calendar link above for Jan. events and also go to the next post to see CTMH Specials for this month only.

If you are interested in any items, just click on the Shop 24/7 link to the left and click on to product or catalogue to place your order. Items will ship directly to you.

Have a crafty week!!
