The Close To My Heart Constant Campaign (special product) for September is a celebration of National Stamping Month, which is going on until September 30th.  It is called the Create Kindness Card Kit.

Since my surgery on August 23rd, I haven’t done any crafting at all.  Day before yesterday, on September 1st, I knew it was time to try and sit at the table in my studio and see what happened!  It didn’t last long – only about 1/2 hour, but it felt good!  During that half hour, I was able to sort through the kit contents, decide on which stamps I wanted to use, stamp all of the front sentiments and adhere all of the sentiments to the cards.  Pretty terrific!

The next day, I made up my mind to try again, and ended up colouring all of the sentiments.  On each card I used four different colours, plus a green and a brown from my ShinHan markers collection.  I ended up finishing the entire project in a little over an hour.  That included 24 – 3 x 3 cards!  The best part, is that I now have all the left overs to use again and again.

Here is a sample of how they turned out:

And this is everything that you get in the kit, so that you can hit the floor running:

I think this would be the perfect kit for a beginner who doesn’t have a lot of supplies.  You could colour all of the sentiments with pencil crayons if you liked, or even leave them plain for someone else to colour! Even if you’ve been paper crafting for years and years like me, it’s so nice to have a simple project that you could even take with you to a crop or a friend’s house, that is completely self contained and completed in such a short time.  And then you have a great supply of small cards on hand for those special moments that need a little note.
