We show you how to use the same B&T Duos® paper and achieve completely different looks. We highlight fun features of masculine cards and layouts, showcase innovative ways to use My Stickease®, as well as turn the spotlight on the multi-card workshops in the Wishes Card Confidence Program™. Finally, Jeanette Lynton shares a special themed album she made to capture some of the priceless memories she recorded on her blog: now that's versatility!

Dear Dawn,

Well, we are finally seeing some warmer (& humid) weather here in northern Michigan. The girls and I are going to have to squeeze in a beach day before it turns cold all over again!

Here is my second update for August, as promised. Close to My Heart has so many exciting things heading your way.

For example, on Tuesday, August 18th, the new National Stamping Month special from Close to My Heart begins. I already have the beautiful new "Everyday Celebration" card kit in my hot little hands and let me tell you it's a real beauty!

You won't want to miss all of the great new paper, stamps, embellishments, and more you will find in Close to My Heart's new Autumn/Winter Idea Book! I am hosting a National Stamping Day Crop on Saturday, September 12th. Please contact me at 347-6301 if you would like to attend. There are still a few spaces available. This will be a nice chance to see the new goodies for fall too.

If you only have an hour to spare on Sept. 12th, you can stop by for a free make & take and still get that peek at what's in store in the new Idea Book (and you can get your own copy too). RSVP that you want to do the make & take so I have a project ready just for you.

I hope you, too, find time for at least one more beach day for your family in August!
