What are Hostess Rewards stamps?   Hostess Rewards stamp sets are hostess-only stamp sets that hostesses can purchase using select product credit earned through a Gathering. These brand new, A- through D-size stamp sets are only available during the current idea book cycle and are priced at a discount to make the rewards stretch further!

This month I'll be sharing some of my favorites from past posts, and some newly created cards that I've done recently.  Today, I'm sharing one of my favorite rewards stamps -  Better With a Friend.   It's a D-size stamp which would be regularly priced at $17.95 but during July with your qualifying purchase, you can get it for $5!

Here are two cards that I shared several month ago on my blog that I created with this set.

July Stamp of the Month - Life is Wonderful

Welcome to the July Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Life Is Wonderfula set of 8 stamps. If you have come here from Tracey Pierce's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

When I saw this stamp last year when we first got our new Annual Inspirations book, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this set!  It is perfect for creating a 'chalk art' card.  This is a fun technique to use.  For my card, I wanted to have another color besides white so I used the Pear Pigment Ink.  I tried going for one of the brightest colors of pigment ink because on the black cardstock it makes the ink appear darker than it really is.   

I used a piece of Topiary cardstock from the Paper Fundamentals Cardstock Adventure Assortment (Z2032).  I added Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon (Z1929) and a Durables Triangle Stud (Z1928) to finish it off.

Here is another card I created using this same technique that I will be teaching in my July Technique Tuesday class. If you are local to me and want to attend this class, check out my Upcoming Events tab on this blog for more information. 

This stamp is just $5 when you spend $50 in Close to My Heart products during the month of July!  If you don't already have a consultant, shop my website at 

Now it is time to hop over to Dana Kessler's blog and see what she has created! 
You are in for a treat!

Countdown to Disneyland 2015!

I can't believe that another year is nearly gone (in terms of Close To My Heart product years!).  In just 11 days I will be boarding a plane headed to California and one of the best parks in the world - Disneyland!!  This is the 2nd year in a row the Close To My Heart is holding their annual convention at Disneyland.  I love it!  Disney KNOWS how to treat their guests and between CTMH and Disney - they do it up right!!!

The excitement has already begun with teasers from Close To My Heart and predictions among consultants.   Each June, CTMH releases their list of retiring products which ALWAYS starts a buzz.... "What does this mean?" "What will replace this?"  "Will we get that?"..... and on it goes.   By the way - if YOU want to know what is retiring, you can visit my website here: Retiring Items
If you see something you want, you better get it before it is gone forever!!!  All retiring items will be unavailable after August 31 (or sooner if they sell out before then!)

In the meantime, I've been busy working on my roomie gifts (a tradition among convention roommates) that I will share here on my blog once I'm there.  (I don't want to spoil the surprise for my roomies by sharing too soon!).

I got my Scattered Hearts team shirt yesterday which I LOVE!!! I'll be packing my special little notebook that I'm SURE will be filled page after page with notes, new class ideas I will want to hold, techniques I've learned and ways to help my customers even more!!  Oh - and all that writing will make me THIRSTY so I will be bringing along my new water bottle!  It has a fruit infuser in the middle!  (BTW.... I got an extra one of these that will make a fun little give a way at my BINGO night I'm planning in August!)

Be sure to follow my blog, facebook page and StampinHeaven Group Facebook page for all the updates!!!  HINT:  for the FASTEST updates - you will want to join my StampinHeaven Group page.
