If you have your heart set on some of these items's the time to grab that I've gotten the farewells out of the way...let me tell you about all of the new stuff!  These items will not be available to customers until August 1st, so I can't link the items.  

So what's the new stuff?

Level 2 Paper Packs – Lower prices and new quantities make our paper packets easier to purchase and consume
  • Paper packet prices have dropped!! They are now $10.95 and include 6 B&T patterned papers (2 each of 3 double-sided designs) and 6 cardstock sheets (2 each of 2 colors, 1 each of 2 neutrals). It’s now easier to consume all of your paper and not feel guilty about having leftovers.
  • The B&T patterned papers are now cardstock weight. This new weight is great for accents, layering and base pages. There are full-colour designs on both sides with no show-through and no CTMH logo to cut around. Plus, there’s a half-inch “zip strip” with product info on one side and fun designs that you can use on your layouts or cards on the reverse.
Lower prices on My Acrylix stamp sets – Who does that?! CTMH does!
  • A-size – $7.75 (was $8.75)
  • B-size – $10.95 (was $15.50)
  • C-size – $$15.50 (was $20.95)
  • D-size – $19.95 ( was $25.50)
  • E-size – $33.50 (was $38.95)
  • More than 32 new individual stamp sets and all stamp images are shown at 100% in the idea book, so there's no guessing about the size.

Hostess Credits 
  • You don’t need to host a gathering or participate in my clubs to take advantage of hostess credits. If you place an order for at least $165, you can receive $30 in Hostess credits. The rewards increase the more you spend.
  • Hostess credits have been expanded to include Workshops on the Go kits, Studio J memberships and Studio J 5-packs. 
And the news I'm most excited about? Art Philosophy Cricut® Collection!  Perfect for those of you who hate to cut out your stamped images!

  • Close To My Heart introduces the exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. It comes with 700 shapes that are designed to be used with specific My Acrylix stamps. 
  • When you purchase the cartridge, you’ll also receive three D-sized stamp sets that coordinate with the images on the cart and three sets of 9×12 Dimensional Elements chipboard shapes. You can stamp on your Cricut shapes; cover your Dimensional Elements with a Cricut shape; or cut, stamp, and then cover.
  • As you look through the new Idea Book, you’ll see a Cricut icon or a stamp image surrounded by a red outline. That lets you know there’s a matching shape on your Cricut cartridge. Simply cut out the coordinating shape with your Cricut machine using the setting indicated on the stamp’s carrier sheet, then stamp your image on the base shape. Quick and easy!
  • Here’s the video where you can see how it works

All of these products will be available on my website beginning August 1st.
