Happy October! As the autumn days grow shorter and the air gets a little crisper I start to anticipate the arrival of the holiday season. Yes, I know we still have to celebrate Halloween, but in my book that is the start of the holiday season. Fun times are right around the corner! Are you ready?
Every October my friend and mentor, Tresa Black, celebrates "Blogtober Fest." It is a month to celebrate your blog and share all the crafty goodness this time of year brings about. I don't know if she is doing "Blogtober Fest" again, but I enjoyed participating so much last year, I figured I would do it again this year. It is a great challenge to try to blog more and create more!
To get "Blogtober Fest" rolling, I am offering a free Close to My Heart Paper Pack or two free Studio J Layouts to anyone who makes a purchase as part of my Online "Blogtober Fest" Gathering. Participate in my gathering by going to my business page at mnmscrapbooking.ctmh.com and join "Amy's Blogtober Fest." This will bring you directly to my shopping pages where you can browse and order all the great products Close to My Heart has to offer. Your order will be shipped directly to you. Get one entry for any order, get additional entries for every $25 in product you spend with me (i.e. buy $25-get two entries, buy $75-get 4 entries). The more you buy, the more chances you will have to win. The number of prizes given away will depend on the final order amount.
When placing your order, don't forget to take advantage of this month's Stamp of the Month, A Very Merry Christmas. Click on the link to see the entire stamp set. Purchase it at full retail value for $17.95 or get it for only $5 when you purchase $50.00 or more with me. The Artiste Cricut Cartridge compliments this stamp set perfectly and would make for some super cute Christmas cards. Look at the beautiful projects created using this stamp set created by the CTMH Art Department. Isn't that little girl in the layout cute?;o) (Only a mother would be so proud!)
