Michaels, Joann, Hobby Lobby and AC Moore Coupons & New Giveaway!

Close to My Heart has announced the product retirement list for the Spring Summer 2014 catalog. These items are on a "while supplies last" type basis so once things sell out, they are GONE!

Below are a few stamp sets that are retiring that are some of my favorites. I am sorry to see these go. But these are not all the stamp sets - there are more here.  Also, paper, inks, chipboard items, the bracket frame and more are retiring!

Bountiful Season:
Here is the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month for July - a full alphabet stamp set! Normally, these are $29.95 but this month, it's only $5 with a $50 purchase!  WHOOP!

  4. Congrats Oh Snap. Enjoy your cartridge.
    Thanks so much for sharing the coupons.
    I do not have plans to get the Explore. I do not want to link my cartridges and that is a requirement to use this one. I have and am happy with my E2, Expressions {I have 2} and original bug.

  5. Nope-I had just bought a Cameo before the Explore came out, and I still have (and use) an E2 and Gypsy. Maybe someday, if I can no longer use my Gypsy and still want to be able to use my cartridges

  7. No, I don't have nor plan on getting an Explore!
    I did just about have a heart attack last week when my Expression ( the last big item my sweetie bought me before he passed away) stopped working. But I ley it sit for a few days and it started working again.

    Thanks for the coupons!!!

  13. first! woot, woot! : D. and Thank You!!!

    I don't have an Explore, but I did update my Imagine and Gypsy for the first time in a couple of years, and I manage to get most of my linked gypsy carts linked to my CCR account. So if I did get an Explore I'd be able to use it lol. My one big reservation about the explore is that it MUST be used with cricut's website. I hate having to depend on that.Sometimes I travel where there is no internet, so I'd have all the time in the world and no way to work with it. And there's no work around if Cricut's servers go down. I'd be more willing to buy one if there was a program I could buy that didn't have to be linked to the internet to use.

  14. I am holding back from purchasing the Explore. I have all the other Cricuts and have been disappointed with support.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't have/want the Explore! I don't want to be tied to the internet when I craft. I have the baby bug and the expression and am a totally happy camper. I keep the expression pretty busy. I use the baby bug as a backup. Thanks for sharing your time, talents, ideas, and coupons with us.

  17. I have been trying to win the new Cricut Explore on the website with the hashtag imadeit. I really want one but I already have 3 different cricut machines. I think my husband might just put a pin in me and stick ME to the bulletin board! Love your site.

  20. I did purchase the Explore and I absolutely love it. It cuts beautifully and is so much fun to use. I also signed up for the subscription after my trial expired and it is very well worth the monthly fee. I highly recommend the Explore and subscription to everyone !

  21. I don't have the Explore yet, but with the new Ipad app I might give it a try. Would love to win this cartridge. Thanks for the opportunity.

  24. I already have 2 Cricut machines, so I'm not looking to buy a 3rd. The Explore looks great, though..

  27. No I don't, have the Explore. I have two cricuts already but debating on it and the cameo.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm still on the fence about the Explore. Sounds great but do I really NEED another Cricut? Maybe. Thanks for a chance to win the Small Talk cartridge.

  29. So no I do not have the new Explore because I am still learning how to use the one I have, I am still learning how to use my gypsy and Cricut Craft Room as well. But I will say that your tutorials really help me. I do not feel like a dummy any more. So Thank you for that joy. I also want to say thank you for the coupon links to all the mayor retail stores. I print cut before I shop.

  30. Don't have the Explore yet but I do already have 3 Cricut machines. Thanks for the chance to win, I really want this cartridge :)

  31. I just bought the explore last Thursday.... I love it!! I have all the other cricuts,plus a sizzix eclips and a scan n cut, this is by far the best cricut ever!! I still really like my sizzix an scan n cut because they each do different things than the explore!! I'm just hoping I can get my cartridges transferred as fast as possible, because you only got 2 weeks with the subscription and the gypsy an cricut craft room are not on speaking terms as of NOW !!!

  32. Happy 4th! Thanks for the coupons! I do not have the new cricut Explore. My trusty Cricut Expression works just fine for me! Cute cartridge you're giving away...I can pictures lots of embellies for my LOs and cards!

    I own the original Cricut and it's all I need, no desire for the Explore.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would LOVE an Explore! I just saved enough to buy an Expression when they went on sale just before Christmas. I really like the Expression, I only had the small Cricut that can only cut 6" wide paper before that. So I will continue to enjoy my Expression, until I can save up enough for an Explore

  35. Thank you so much for the coupons! These will come in handy this week when I take my list to my local craft store. I'm just starting a new scrapbook, so need several items.

  36. I don't have the new Cricut machine, but would love to have it. When I go into Michael's and I see it I really want to get it, but I can't right now.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I really want an Explore. Maybe by Christmas. I love your layout it is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanks for the great layout and chance to get a new cartridge, saving my quarters for the new cartridge due to come out in August, Artfully Sent. Looks great!

  40. Just bought the Explore and can't wait to use it some more! Looking forward to seeing what's in the up-coming catalog too! :) Thanks for offering the give away!

  41. Joy,
    Thank you for the coupons, I truly appreciate them, as does my pocketbook. I did not purchase the Explore, my Expression is still going strong, perhaps when it passes, it will be replaced with the Explore.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thank you for the coupons. I want the Explore and the sales they have on their website right now are soooo tempting: you can get the machine, Deep Cut Housing & Blade, Scoring Stylus, Metallic Pen Set, Tool Set, 3 extra mats,and a vinyl in midnight all for $299 (and that's not the only sale they have...the one that's the most attractive to me is the one that includes 3 of their best selling font carts for $269), but I also wonder if the sales during Black Friday/Digital Monday might be even better than these sales....opinions anyone?

  43. I got the explore &am loving it! Still learning design space but have been able to find & do what I need to get projects done.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have not gotten the Explore as of yet. I have 3 expressions and so I just can't get another machine at this point. I do like it and have been hearing great things about it!
