I told you April is a busy month.  It is also the start of our Seasonal Expression 2 idea supplement.  Maybe this shouldn't be called a supplement because there are 37 pages.  Pages chalked full of new (and limited time) product and ideas.  Seasonal items found in here are available now through August 2015.

Please check out Happy Everything (D1653).  It is this periods Operation Smile stamp set and can be purchased for $17.95, of which $3 goes toward Operation Smile.  Since its founding in 1982, Operation Smile has performed over 220,000 surgical procedures to correct facial deformities in children.  it only takes an hour for volunteer medical teams to perform these life-altering surgeries that will give children confidence for a lifetime.

Another stamp set I must own!!

Other items in the book include two new paper packs, summer themed stamps, and everyday stamps. Smaller My Crush books.  Another Picture My Life program (how are you going to use/transform them?).  New washi tape, sequins, enamel shapes, two more colors of extra thick twine, My Creations Mini Mix Album, and My Creations Mini Folio.  And I can't forget to mention three more styles of albums (D-Ring and Post-Bound)!

April is Deal of the Day at Close to my Heart

I know several days have passed us by already... Thankfully there are many more days in April, and thus, for this special.  What am I talking about?

Spontaneity and surprise are the two key elements fueling the fun of April’s Deal of the Day campaign. Part of the fun of buying a grab bag is that you never know just what you are going to get! All you know is that you will be getting a great deal on a mix of new and retired Close To My Heart products—and everyone loves getting a good deal! The value of each grab bag varies with its price point, with some grab bags containing product valued at more than DOUBLE the price you pay!

Check my website each day at 3:00 pm (MDT) to see the new deal, which will be available for 24 hours or while supplies last. Keep in mind that while each day’s deal will feature grab bags at the same price tier, there will be a variety of grab bags available at that price. This means that you may purchase multiple grab bags on a single day and get different products in each one.

To trigger each day’s deal, simply place any retail-priced item in your shopping cart. You will then be able to add your desired number of grab bags to your online order. Although the grab bag purchases don’t contribute toward Hostess Rewards totals, they will count toward earning the Stamp of the Month, which just adds even more value to the order! April is the month for great deals, so be sure you make the most of this dynamic, daily promotion!

It’s a big surprise, but this much we will tell you: grab bags will feature a mix of current and retired product. Five grab bag tiers will be available at random times throughout the month, but not all grab bags within a given price point will contain the same product. The price tiers are as follows:
                        • $35 Grab Bags (On average, a $70 value!)
                        • $50 Grab Bags (On average, a $90 value!)
                        • $75 Grab Bags (On average, a $140 value!)
                        • $115 Grab Bags (On average, a $240 value!)
                        • $150 Grab Bags (On average, a $325 value!)

So you can order from our Annual Expressions idea book or the brand new Seasonal Expressions 2 supplement.  Again, go to my website to see all the great products Close to my Heart has to offer!

Project My Life cards into Greeting Cards

I thought I should share with you some of the cards we'll be making at this month's workshop.  We will be transforming many of the Project My Life (PML) cards into greeting cards.  Would you like to join us?

Workshop dates are Monday April 27th and Tuesday April 28th from 7 to 9 pm.  We will start making our 25 cards, but I highly doubt anyone will finish.  Even Miss Speedy ;)  That's why I'll be emailing those who buy the kit a file with instructions so the cards not finished can be completed at home.  Heck, you don't need to come at all if that's your desire.

Here are 12 of the 25 cards you'll be making. Your kit will contain the whole Hopscotch PML cards, 25 card bases with envelopes, and the paper pieces cut (you'll be cutting the PML cards) so all you have to do is assemble (don't get too excited... you'll have to cut some of the cards up -- like the stars on the upper left card).  Cost to you is $45 (plus shipping if appropriate).

What are you waiting for?  Let me know you'd like a kit by Saturday April 4th.
