Get Them While They’re Hot… and a Free Giveaway!

I’m loving summer, the beach, the swimming pools, naps… and crafting time!!  With the excitement builds with CTMH’s new Annual Inspirations catalog going live on August 1st, it is good to pause for a moment and review the items in the current catalog that are retiring (see the post) or being carried over with price increases. These are great items to buy in July while they are still available and at the lower price!  I’ve posted a table below of items which will be increasing in price:




While we await the new Annual Inspirations book, I am happy to announce a Free Giveaway in the Fundamental Crafts Contest! Watch this video to learn more and to see Monica introduce our new Paper Fundamentals product, an assortment of 20 double-sided 12” x 12” paper sheets (2 each of 10 designs) featuring the same design on both sides, with one side featuring a glossy-resist version of the design. They are just the ticket to add a little spice to any of your projects! Each of you always has such a beautiful way of transforming memories into keepsakes. I can only imagine what you can do with this!

For a chance to win your own Paper Fundamentals Basics Assortment, leave a comment telling us what your fundamental scrapbooking item is and why you just can’t live without it. To be eligible to win, be sure to leave a comment below, on Facebook, or on YouTube before July 31.

Good luck!

Join the Party!
