So many people had “banner” days with our FREE Mini Banners that they are all gone! But Close To My Heart stepped up with another great FREEBIE…darling Milk Cartons ready for decorating.
These milk cartons come in a package of 2 and contain closure clips. They measure 5-1/2″ x 3″ x 3″. These have been quite popular–so much so that people have been making them from scratch! But all you’ll need to do is decorate these ones. Need some inspiration? Check out Pinterest for some amazing ideas on how to decorate these darling containers.
If you missed out on the banners, don’t delay any longer!! These milk cartons are while supplies last, too! Once they’re gone, they’re gone! Click HERE to get yours before it’s too late.
*Offer valid through June 30, 2013. WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. Only orders that include a stamp set and reach $25 qualify for the free milk cartons.
This month, one of the gal’s in my Stamp Club sent me a card she found on Pinterest and asked if we could do something like it. I looked at the design and felt this month’s Stamp of the Month–A Flowering Bunch, would be perfect for it.
It’s a tri-fold design with a double window. I wasn’t sure of the measurements so in an effort to make the cutting easy, I designed it starting with a 6″ x 12″ piece of cardstock. That made it easy to score it in thirds and create the fold out panels. The larger window is a 1-3/4″ square with the smaller one being a 1-1/4″. When you open it up, it has a lovely sentiment and a “bunch” of flowers.
A very pretty stamp set…and at a price point of only $5 (with a qualifying $50 order) it makes it so much more appealing! To get your A Flowering Bunch Stamp set, click HERE.
This month’s FREE Mini Banner offer from Close To My Heart is starting to run low…I’d hate for you to miss out on this amazing special. We’re only at mid-month and only 25% of the inventory of these darling Mini Banners remains!

This simple product was one I was so excited about when Close To My Heart debuted them last summer. The Hook & Loop Dots are a nice small size and already come with adhesive backing.

They come in super handy for those 3-D items that can be made with our Cricut Art Philosphy and Artiste cartridges–like purses, boxes and more.
A great time was had at our crop this past Saturday! Thanks to everyone who joined us! A fun part of each crop is our station name “card.” For our Spring crops, we generally do a little flower pot complete with a little flower cut from our Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. Then we have a little competition–”Best Dressed Flower Pot” for those who want to decorate their pots.
Here are some of the fun results we had this weekend…
And the winner received a cute little trophy to commemorate their big win!
We had several comments that we should offer our crops more frequently, so be on the lookout for a *NEW* date to be added soon! Here’s to lots more fun crops…
