June Flash Sale and Retiring Products

 Well this is the month a number of you have been waiting for. Those great sales and clearance items. I know I look forward to picking up a few deals as well so that I can put together donations for the various charities I participate in as well as for Crop/hostess gifts.
Every Friday there will be an email sent out by Close To My Heart( if you subscribe to their newsletters)advertising the special deals on a few select products. You will have to respond quickly as these deals are "while supplies last" or to the following Monday. It's like going to Costco, Winners etc when you see a great product and pass it up until "next Time" and then you go back to find that special item is gone !

 How do you subscribe to my Newsletters? Simply Sign Up as a customer on my website and check off the box- I want to receive Close To My Heart Newsletters

Here is a screen shot

 I am also posting a list of Retiring Products and Stamps that are not on sale but being discontinued.

I have posted a few of the products you may want to purchase before they are no longer available.

If you love birthday,weddings,anniversaries,then you will love this wonder Cake stamps set.

I used it on a card. For the background I used one of our Close To My Heart embossing folders, inked it up and out it through my embossing machine. It gives it a "vintage-distress" look.

 I love the Penelope Workshops Your Way as to me it screams "Spring"! I took these pictures of my Grand daughter and youngest daughter who is her Aunt ,yesterday in the park and printed them this morning on my Canon Selphy.

 This is the workshop I used. Did you know that each workshop comes with a downloadable,coloured printed cutting guide with detailed directions? I changed mine up a little with picture sizing and added a few Non-Close To My Heart products. It came together in no time and I used up almost all of the product that came with the kit.

 This was one of three workshops I offered this past February. It's not too late to purchase your workshop.  Contact me or go to my website and order. But hurry as they will be gone April 30th !

I had done the workshop a month ago(without pictures) and was waiting to take some pictures of my Grand daughter wearing a pretty spring dress. Not to be. Instead we took a walk yesterday to the park and I snapped some pictures of her playing with her Auntie Bri. It was the first day in a long time that we were able to get out and enjoy the sun. We all had fun and enjoyed the walk down and the sunny rays of spring.
