Deal of the Day Grab Bags

Good Morning Everyone!  April went fast and as we sit at the end of the month we are down to the last hours to score a Deal of the Day Grab Bag!

The Deal of the Day becomes available each day at 4 o'clock CST and is available for 24 hours.  Each grab bag is a surprise!  What you do know before you purchase is that you will be getting a mixture of current and retired Close to My Heart product.  Also, that you'll be getting a really good deal!  The value of each grab bag varies with the different price point and some grab bags contain product valued at more than DOUBLE the price you pay!

I have received three grab bags.  They are like Pringles, once you start (you get it and open it up) you can't stop!  They are really such a great deal!!

Take a peek...

$35 Grab Bag:  This one came and I squealed with delight!  Look at all that washi tape, uber cute Picture My Life, ribbon, shimmer trip and cute gift bags!!  This particular grab bag has a retail value of $80.50 -- MORE than DOUBLE what I paid!

$35 CTMH Deal of the Day 

This was my first grab bag, like I said before, I needed to get another! 

$35 Grab Bag:  This is my newest arrival!  This Deal of the Day came with an array of more fun.  I am most excited about the Textiles and Necklace Kit because I never got a chance to order any of this and I eye that Necklace Kit up every time I check out the While Supplies Last section.  I plan on making it and wearing it soon.  Totally my colors! :)  This grab bag has a retail value of $78.65.  What a deal, again, product worth MORE than DOUBLE!

$35 CTMH Deal of the Day

$50 Grab Bag:  Score!  Enchanted Mini-Pigment set, one that I don't have yet.  Also, do you see that acrylic block?  Needed one that size.  Picutre My Life cards, Treat Bags (that can easily be used for small gift outside of their season with a birthday tag or something cute), and the Jubilee WOTG Stamp Set that is perfect for summer and will compliment the Taste of Summer paper pack that is available during May for National Scrapbooking month.  This grab bag has a retail value of $98.20!

Spoiler Alert! Anyone notice an item that seems to be in each grab bag? Yep, you got it!  The Season Tweetings Gift Bags!  They come in a 6-pack and I should have turned one set around so you could see the other pattern, but I didn't! :)  You get 3 topiary chevron bags, and 3 ruby polka-dot bags.  They are cotton, have a little drawstring and can be (will be) used for more than just a Holiday Gift bag.

Well, there you have it.  That's what I've gotten so far! :) If you haven't taken a chance to get one yet and you like what you see hustle on over to my Online Shopping Site and get your hands on your own bag full of goodies!  It's simple to do:  Add one regular priced item to your shopping cart (it can be any price I have gotten small embellishments and the Rub & Remove Eraser both for $2.95), add "Deal of the Day" and check out!

LAST CHANCE: Today's current Deal of the Day is a $50 grab bag and will be available until 3:59pm CST.  At 4:00pm CST today the LAST Deal of the Day will be available and will continue to be available until tomorrow, May 1st at 3:59pm!

Happy Crafting!

Sunday Paper: Scrapbook Layout

What a beautiful day! I hope you are enjoying spring. I'm ready for summer and many more super, sunny days!!

Seaside is the perfect summer-y paper packet and just what we're in the mood for this time of year!  I created this layout at my Scrapbooking weekend away last weekend.  I love the colors in this paper pack and also want to draw your attention to how different the paper can look depending on the sides you choose to use or the combinations of colors you choose to pull out.

I used a sketch from Make It from Your Heart Volume 2 as the foundation of this layout.  I love how one sketch can turn into so many different looking pages depending on paper, embellishments, photos and of course each scrapbookers taste.  If you're looking for new sketches and ideas Close to My Heart has several different scrapbooking how-to books as well as a couple cardmaking how-to books, available here.

I've mentioned scrapbooking challenge pages before and sketches are usually our go-to challenge.  If you have a group that you scrap with, give it a try!  Pick out a sketch, everyone commits to using it and when you're all done stop and look at each layout side-by-side you'll be amazed at the differences coming from one sketch!

Happy Crafting!

Sunday Paper: Cute Card

Happy Sunday!  I hope you had a chance to enjoy the beautiful weekend.  I just got back from a great scrapbooking weekend away with friends.  I got some major paper playing in!  We all shared lots of laughs, enjoyed our time together and I even got a long run in on a beautiful spring morning!

I'm here to share the make-and-take card I brought along for everyone to create this weekend at our retreat.  We used one of my favorite Stamp of the Month sets, Typed Note, and paper from the Seaside Paper Packet.

Seaside Paper, Typed Note Stamp Set, Oceanside Sequins,
Inks: Cocoa, Desert Sand & Glacier

Typed Note is just $5 with a $50 purchase and only available during the month of April so grab yours while you can!!

When you're ready to get your hands on this set you can contact me or head over to my Online Site and place your order to ship directly to you! 

Happy Crafting!
