This post comes to you "straight from the heart!" Don't you love that saying in the January Stamp of the Month? I do! In face I love every single saying and image in this set. This is a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (standard) size card that I created with the January Stamp of the Month.
January is almost over (only five more days!), which means this lovely set will be disappearing with it. This set can be yours for only $5 ($12.95 savings) with every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax). Spend $100, get 2, and so on. When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before checking out.
Don't forget that January is also National Papercrafting Month. Close To My Heart has created a darling kit that is only $5 ($10 if you want the mini-album included as well) with a $50 order. If you're already qualifying for the Stamp of the Month at $5, you also qualify for the National Papercrafting Month "Noted" kit. You'll also be prompted to add that if you'd like before you check out.
Here's the set (the actual size of the carrier sheet is 6" x 6"):
And here's a close up shot of my card:

I have really enjoyed playing with the National Papercrafting Month paper pack, Noted. There are less than 2 weeks left to get it! When January is gone, so is the kit. I took some of the left over papers I had after making my mini-album (see it here) and created this card. I added a Hopscotch Picture My Life card, a few of the stickers from the Hopscotch Complements, and a stamp set and came up with something fun. I ALWAYS am in need of thank you cards, so I went that direction.
Just a reminder that this kit is only available during January, and is only $5 with a $50 order. If you want the mini-album included, it's $10 (which is what the mini-album is at full price all by itself!). What a deal! When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your kit(s) before you check out. Also, you qualify for the January Stamp of the Month for only $5 ($12.95 savings) with your $50 order as well. You'll also be prompted to add this at the end of your order.

Technique Tip: You may have noticed that my flower has different colored petals. I stamped it once in Chocolate, once in Flaxen, once in Glacier and once in Sorbet. I cut the petals I wanted out of the Flaxen, Glacier and Sorbet flowers and adhered those petals to the chocolate flower. Voila! Multi-colored flower!
Here is what comes in your Noted Kit:
- a C-size stamp set (24 stamp images)
- Gold foil stickers (100 stickers)
- 4-Cardstocks (1 light mint, 1 light coral, 2 white daisy)

As many of you who have been following me for a while know, my boys have each served 2 year missions for our church. Easton served in Houston, TX (Spanish speaking), Tannon served in Malaga, Spain (obviously Spanish speaking) and our youngest, Dawson, is serving in Syndey, Australia. He was called Spanish as well. Each month I get together with the mothers of several of Dawson's friends who are also serving missions around the world and we have lunch and chat and sometimes cry a few tears as we talk about our missionaries. I cherish these times each month! This layout, made with the January Stamp of the Month, commemorates this monthly tradition.
Here are a few close ups. I have also included a products used list, complete with photos and links at the end of this email for your convenience. For every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax), you can get the January Stamp of the Month (in January only) for $5 ($12.95 savings). Spend $100, get 2, and so on. When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before you check out.
A little bit about Dawson and his mission. He was called to speak Spanish, and has for about 6 months of his mission so far, but has also spent even more time speaking Tongan and teaching the Tongan people of Australia the gospel. While serving in the Tongan areas, he has worn a Tupenu. I love this photo of him and his companion. I can't believe he will be home in 4 1/2 short months. I have such mixed emotions. I can't wait to hug this kid and have him home, but at the same time I know how happy he is doing what he is doing. I know when he comes home, he will leave part of his heart in Australia.
