Rock the Block Reminder

I just wanted to remind everyone that the Rock the Block promotion ends Tuesday, Jan. 31. If you want to take advantage of the terrific promotion you need to make sure you order soon. To receive this great E-sized Rock the Block stamp set and Collage Cubes all you have to do is head over to my website and make a minimum order of $25 from the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book and then you get BOTH the stamp set and cubes for only $15!!

Close to My Heart always seems to amaze me with the great products and promotions that they come up with each month.  There are so many things you can do with your Collage Cubes.  Here are just a few examples of what I did with mine.

There is always one I am sad to lose

I shared with you earlier this week a list of the papers and stamps that will be retired at the end of this month.  In that group, was the Sophia papers. I have to say that just looking at these papers makes me smile. There is just something so charming about them.  So when planning a party that is at the end of this month I thought I would show off Sophia one more time. Inspired by the Originals layout "Clean Cut"
