Celebrating All Things Slimline Cards!

National Stamping Month is here! Celebrate with us in a Slimline Celebration! With so many great deals on slimline stamps and Thin Cuts metal dies, it’s bound to be one of the biggest bashes of the year!

The Slimline Celebration special includes three exclusive stamp and Thin Cuts sets, one stamp set of just sentiments, and two exclusive Thin Cuts dies, all of which have been designed specifically for slimline cards! Let’s take a closer look at all the amazing stamps and Thin Cuts available through this Slimline Celebration!

One of the stand-out stamp and Thin Cuts sets in the Slimline Celebration is the Mini Garden Gnomes set! Some of our most popular stamp sets over the past year have been from our gnome collection, and this miniature gnome set is sure to be a fast favorite.

With a fun assortment of sentiments, images, and icons, the Mini Garden Gnomes Stamp + Thin Cuts is the perfect way to step up your slimline creations!

Along with our mini gnomes, we also have Thoughtful Critter Stamp + Thin Cuts! This adorable set includes a variety of woodland creatures with a handful of playful sentiments.

These stamps and metal dies make it easy to create unforgettable slimline cards that dazzle every time!

In addition to the too-cute Thoughtful Critters, our Slimline Celebration also includes the Fishy Greetings Stamp + Thin Cuts. This stamp and Thin Cuts set is yet another way to add some whimsical delight to your slimline cards!

The last stamp set included in the Slimline Celebration special is the My Acrylix® Slimline Sentiments stamp set. This set includes twice as many stamps as a normal set would have and is comprised entirely of sentiments tailored specifically for slimline cards!

These sentiment stamps include options for both vertical and horizontal cards, and look incredible no matter where they’re placed! These stamps are perfect for card fronts and interiors, alike, making them a quick, easy, and versatile option as you create your own slimline cards!

For some extra pizzaz, the Slimline Celebration special also includes two stand-alone Thin Cuts (dies) to help you create gorgeous backgrounds. With the Stars Cluster Thin Cuts, it’s quick and easy to create a stellar foundation for your card, while the Circles Cluster Thin Cuts allows for versatile creation right from the start.

For even more fun, all the stamps and Thin Cuts you’ve seen here today are available together in the Slimline Celebration Product Bundle at a 20% discount, and to top it all off, we’re also hosting a special National Stamping Month virtual event on September 24, via Facebook Live!

Sharing the Memory Keeping Vision

True North Workshop #ctmh #closetomyheart #TrueNorth #TrueNorthWorkshop #CelebrateCanada #Canada #fall #autumn #hockey #icehockeyWe love October at Close To My Heart, not only because of the beautiful weather changes and the fun holidays it contains, but also because it is the month that we celebrate our Canadian friends and our shared vision.

It was in October of 2003 that excited new Close To My Heart Consultants began holding the first-ever Canadian Home Gatherings where the art of memory keeping was shared and taught.

To celebrate this momentous 15-year anniversary with all of our cardmaking and scrapbooking friends, we’ve designed not one, but TWO exclusive stamp sets and workshop kits!

As you can see, both stamp sets illustrate a few of our favorite Canadianisms, but are so versatile that you don’t have to be Canadian to like them!

True North Workshop #ctmh #closetomyheart #TrueNorth #TrueNorthWorkshop #CelebrateCanada #Canada #fall #autumn #hockey #icehockey

The True North workshop kit comes with materials to make two 2-page scrapbook layouts, one stand-alone scrapbook page, and four cards. Follow the instructions to create the artwork exactly as seen here or use the included tips and techniques to change them up and make them all your own. (There is no wrong way to use these tools if they are preserving your memories!)

Are you the outdoorsy, camping, hunting, fishing, wilderness type? Perhaps you are the “memory keeper” of someone who is. Either way, the Great Outdoors stamp set and workshop were designed exactly with you in mind!

The Great Outdoors #ctmh #closetomyheart #thegreatoutdoors #scrapbooking #cardmaking #wildanimals #wild #wilderness #moose #fish #bear #duck

The beautiful, intricate details used to create each of the animal designs as well as the deliberate compass and arrow are a must have in any adventurous spirit’s crafting collection!

Celebrate this joyful Canadian anniversary with us and share the true art of memory keeping with those around you!
