Art & Soul's Newest Episode:

Mementos for the Man in Your Life

Art & Soul Mementos for the Man in Your Life

Tune in to the latest episode of "Art & Soul" today.

Get ready to celebrate the special man in your life by creating a fast, fun, and manly gift to help him remember just how much he's loved and appreciated. You'll learn fabulous techniques like generation and rock 'n' roll stamping, using a corner rounder to create fun and unique shapes, working macho magic with a pivot point stapler, and much more. Then, for a few moments of partying with everything from sprinkles to chocolate mousse, follow Jeanette into the enchanting Art & Soul Cupcakery-and find out why she's so delighted!

Speaking of cupcakes, now you have the recipes and instructions to make them, too! The instructions are written to describe just one of the cupcakes in each lovely trio, but should give you enough information to be able to create the others or to switch it up and make your own paper confection.

Dear Dawn,

May has proved to be a very eventful month in my life. Our family had one son moving into his first apartment, another son moving four hours away into a house, one daughter turning 16, and the baby working hard to keep her all A's record despite being sick again! Whew!

Did you get a chance to enjoy our beautiful Memorial Day weekend? We took advantage of the pleasant weather to get our yard and gardens whipped into shape. We also made sure to get in a couple of evenings of BBQing.

As June is fast approaching I had to make sure to check in and let everyone know the exciting news Close to My Heart has in store for the month of June.

What's more fun than discovering a new art technique, using an embellishment in a unique way, or trying an accent you've never used before and loving it? Well, our June Deal-a-Day promotion is perfect for bringing out the fun in your creative projects! It's a great time to pick up some products you love or ones you've never used before at an incredible price and discover all the creative ways you can use them. You can add to your scrapbooking supplies so you'll always have just the perfect item on hand. You can even challenge your creative side and say, 'Whatever deal pops up this Wednesday I'm going to buy and use-even if I've never used it before!' That can get your imagination flowing! Visit my MyCTMH website every day in June and see what gets your artistic juices bubbling! And remember, the deals are good for just that one day and only while supplies last.

Be on the lookout for the details below for the Deal-a-Day fun beginning on June 1st!

I hope you are getting ready for a fabulous summer full of fun!


Who Doesn't Love a Deal?

June Deal-a-Day Website Specials are coming your way beginning on June 1st. Plus, I am offering an extra special reward for those shopping the deals during June.

You'll find a different deal each day on my website:

June is the time to stock up on all your creative supplies for scrapbooking, stamping, and cardmaking with our Deal-a-Day special. Most of June you'll have the opportunity to grab a popular Close To My Heart product free when you make a purchase of one My Acrylix stamp set! We'll also have exciting goodie boxes available on several days where you'll get a bag-full of products well below retail price! You'll want to stock up now while you can save big. Visit my MyCTMH website every day to save money and fill your craft room with everything you're going to need.

Once you arrived to my website, you will find a special June Deal-a-Day link to see that day's special deal. However, there will be a one hour window each day when the deal changeover will occur and you will not find a deal from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. eastern time each day.

What are the campaign details?

Dates: June 1-30, 2009 (the last item posted on June 30 will remain online until July 1, 2009 at 10 a.m. (ET) or while supplies last.

Featured Products: It's a different product special each day!
Take advantage of a different deal each day during June only on my website.
Each special will run for just one day-23 hours to be exact, from 11 a.m. (ET) to 10 a.m. (ET) the following day. The hour between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. will be used to finalize all pending transactions and launch the next "deal."

There will be two different types of "deals" offered on through this exciting promotion:

Receive a free item with a qualifying purchase. On 24 of the 30 days in June, you can receive a specially-selected current product absolutely free (tax does apply on free items in the US) when you purchase a My Acrylix® stamp set, size A, B, C, D, or E (Excluding Stamp of the Month and customized or K-size sets). Please read additional information about qualifying stamp sets. The free product will change daily and there can be only one free item per order. Shoppers will also save big on shipping when orders meet all Deal-a-Day guidelines. Please read on for shipping requirements.

Receive 50% off or more on "Great Goodies" boxes. On 6 of the 30 days in June, you can purchase a "mystery" box filled with "Great Goodies." Contents will vary by box and include both current and retired favorite stamp sets, paper packs, embellishments, and other great products. The six "Great Goodies" boxes will all have different pricing of at least 50% off retail, with some at even deeper discounts! Note that we have made every effort to differentiate the 6 "Great Goodies" options so you can purchase boxes on different dates and receive a wide variety of differing products! No qualifying purchase is required on the days a "Goodies" box is the deal; discounted shipping is also available when orders meet all Deal-a-Day guidelines. Please read on for shipping requirements.

What are the item numbers for the campaign products?
Since the special changes from day to day, so does the item number-but no worries! You only need to "add" the item to your cart as you usually do when shopping online. You don't need to know the item numbers to place an order. Note that on the days when a qualifying purchase of a stamp set is required to receive a free item, you must put the stamp set in the cart BEFORE the free item may be added and checked out.
Also note that in order to give you the best possible deal on products and shipping, Deal-a-Day purchases must include ONLY Deal-a-Day items and nothing else. Simplifying the guidelines will streamline the shipments of orders and that is also how we're able to discount shipping for this exciting and unique promotion.

This means:

On "Great Goodies" days, only one "Great Goodies" box and no other items may be checked out in a single transaction.
On the "free item with qualifying purchase" days, only one stamp set and the free item may be checked out in one transaction.
If there are additional or different items in the cart, the system will not recognize the purchase as a "Deal-a-Day" purchase and neither the "deal" nor the discounted shipping will be accepted.
This is key to ensure you understand this important qualification so they can take full advantage of the great deals and incredible shipping discounts associated with this promotion. If you wish to make regular purchases on my website, you may still do so, but they are not eligible for the Deal-a-Day free products, Great Goodies boxes, or discounted shipping for regular shopping.

Plus, here is my special reward to those shopping the deals on my website in June:

For every purchase you make from my website from June 1-30, you will earn one chance to win my drawing at the end of the month for your choice of a how-to book (Wishes, Reflections, Cherish, Imagine, or Originals). Each time you place a website order from me, you can increase your chances to win the drawing.

I hope you'll join me each day in June to discover all the great finds happening with the Deal-a-Day specials at:

I can't wait to shop the deals and I hope you will too!

Happy shopping!
