FREE Card Kits in January!

Happy New Year Friends!! 



A Brand new month means a brand new stamp of the month - AND a brand new stamp of the month kit! 

During January 2018 when you order the Stamp of the Month (Bloom and Grow #S1801) for only $5 (you can purchase the limited edition stamp set at a $12.95 savings when you place any order of $50 or more!) you will receive this pre-cut (3) card kit (with an interactive pocket) as well as the emailed cutting guide and recipe sheet from me FREE!





When you purchase the January Stamp of the Month for only $5 YOU can get one of these kits absolutely FREE from me!

And GUESS WHAT?! Not only will you receive the pre-cut kit you will ALSO receive an emailed recipe sheet, cutting guide, and cricut design space file to create even more cards using your own stamp!


The kit will include all of the pre-cut pieces, gems, twine, as well as card bases and envelopes! I will also email you the cutting guide, recipe sheet containing photos of the completed projects (for assembly assistance) as well as paper piece measurements so you can re-create even more cards on your own! 

You will also receive a Cricut Design Space file to be able to cut more of the interactive pockets for the front of the 'seed packet' card! (You do not need to own any of the CTMH Cartridges to be able to cut this file.) Just use your own stamp set to complete the kit! I've done the hard part for you and you can simply enjoy creating!

Okay, so of the (3) cards THIS one is my favorite! It features a pocket on the front that holds a packet of garden seeds perfectly but it could also hold gift cards, cash, etc. 

























This card could be used for so many fun things, you could also use the pocket for a scrapbook page!

Next, two simplistic cards showcase the beautiful blue and green hues...I even used our Shin Han markers to color the white gems. :)







If you'd like to create even more of these cards using your own January Stamp of the month I'm providing the complete supply listing below for you.
