April Constant Campaign – Deal of the Day

1504-cc-deal-of-the-day (1)

Love a great deal? How about 30 days of great deals? During the month of April, you have the opportunity to score a deal every day with Close To My Heart! What deals are we talking about? Each day during April, while supplies last, we’ll feature a random grab bag filled with current and retired Close To My Heart products available for purchase at a major discount. To grab your bag, simply place any current, full-priced item in your online shopping cart through my CTMH website  and you will then be eligible to purchase as many grab bags as you wish (while supplies last)! Grab bags will be featured at five different price points throughout the month, ranging from $35 USD/ $55 CAD to $150 USD/$160 CAD. Some grab bags will contain product with more than DOUBLE the retail value of the price you pay! Grab bags will be available for 24 hours starting at 4 pm CDT each day and only while supplies last—so visit often and early! Remember that grab bag tiers will be featured on a random schedule throughout the month, so seize the opportunity to purchase from the grab bag tier you’re interested in when it becomes available because it might not come around again!

*Offer valid April 1, 2015 (3:00 pm MDT)–May 1, 2015 (2:59 pm MDT). A given grab bag offer will only be available for 24 hours each day starting at 3:00 pm MDT through my CTMH website. Tax and shipping/handling will be charged based on the amount actually paid for the grab bag(s). Amounts paid for grab bag(s) are not eligible for Gathering totals and Hostess Rewards.

Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (Letter G)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter G. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their G element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy.  If you came from Catherine Nowak ~ Catscrapbooking then you’re on the right track!

Nativity Frame by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Bracket Frame (retired), CTMH Black & Grey Glitter Paper, CTMH Reason for the Season stamp set, CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, black ink, and misc. vellum and felt papers.

I chose glitter for the letter G.  I made this for my mom around Christmastime and I am so pleased with how beautiful it is!  The glitter and specialty papers really make a big difference.
