Default CTMH Must-haves?

Hi All!
I have a friend doing a party with CTMH and I know they're having a buy 2 sets get one free sale this month. I'd like to take advantage of it but I don't have a whole lot of money to spend. What are the BEST and most useful sets that are under $20?

A lot would depend on what you would use the stamps for. I do scrapbooking quite a bit so I love their alpha sets. I have used every one I have gotten more times than I could count. My latest is the Charmed alpha, I can't wait to get it in the next week. Their monograms look pretty cool. Each of them are $13.95. If you want a lot of different images and words those would be your best buy I think. I have found that with acrylic that words and letters show up well, it is the real detailed images that I have issues with.

Don't know the prices but I love, "Adorable" and "Alfresco" I just hosted a card workshop where we used "Alfresco" to make 6 cards and card holder and it was great. I will try to upload pictures of the cards later. Have fun!

We don't have an online catalog, but feel free to visit my website to look at stamps there.

www dot christinet dot myctmh dot com (it still won't let me post urls even though I have more than 3 posts).

The only stamps that do not count toward qualifying purchases are personalized stamps, discounted stamps and SOTM.

Glad to know about the SOTM. I was considering that one.

I use stamps for cards mostly. I don't scrapbook so any tips from that angle would be great! Does anyone know how to find any cards made with CTMH stamps on the Gallery?

I just got my first CTMH stamps this week. I was very pleasantly surprised. Really nice stamps! I like all I got, but the one I would not pass up is the March Stamp of the Month, Rustic Flowers. Friendship Flowers is also great. I'm looking forward to April because I *must* have that Stamp of the Month, too!

i just made my first CTMH purchase and it was the swival stapler which I LOVE! It is so so cool. My next step is to try some unmounted stamps during this special. Thanks for some insight into your favorites.

Keep in mind that while the giant alphas, like Boutique, count toward your purchased sets, you cannot get one of those free. The free sets are limited to the $22.95 and under sets.

My vote for the CTMH must have's are
Stamp sets: Cherish & Life is.
and the Swivel Stapler.
Here are some samples of the two stamp set:
Life is CTMH

Cherish stamp

I also use Life is on the Cherish card.

I also like their Scrapbook paper kits.

My favorite CTMH sets:

Happy Birthday -- a great mix of fonts and sizes!
Floral Delights -- the flowers in this are very different looking
Love Tags -- this is good for cards and scrapping!

HTH!

Can someone tell me how these stamps come -- in a clear box like SU, on a sheet, etc.?? Thanks

They come on a flat sheet, they are clear stamps. You have to buy the stamp blocks separately. Advantage of course, is storage and since the stamp blocks are clear, you can see precisely where you are stamping.

They come in a little envelope with a plastic sheet pad for stamping.

I have the Alfresco set, I'd like the Adorable set, but I ordered the Monograms for the Stampaganza promotion.

They are kind of nice, I think they are a little more reasonalbe once you already have some blocks. Plus they do save alot of room in storage.

My favorites are the playful alphabet, simple blossoms, from the heart, little boys, flyin' high, and as soon as my charm alphabet gets here tomorrow I'm sure it will go to the top of my list.

I'm still debating. I liked a set (name I can't remember) with lots of flowers and one stamp said "Sieze the Daisy" so I might just get that one and the blocks I need rather than the incentives. Or I might get one small flower set that was $10.95 and an alphabet set and then the 4-piece leaf set. I just can't decide!!! I need more money!!

The blocks are sold seperately. Underneath each stamp set you will notice that the suggested acrylic block sizes are listed. I usually recommend to my customers to choose the largest block first. That way you know all of the stamps will fit. Then just build your blocks up from there as you can

The only stamp sets that come with a block are the customized stamps (address stamps), but those stamps aren't included in this month's Stampaganza. The blocks I use the most are the 1x1, 2x2, 3x3 and the 2x6 1/2 (for titles). I usually give my customers a 1x1 block free with a $30 purchase.

I know that for the blocks it is cheaper to go to walmart, a craft store or ebay. There used to be a seller called cleardollarstamps that had them cheap, don't know if they are still around or not

I already have a couple of sets of Acrylic blocks from TAC.

Because our stamps use a Acrylic Block instead of wood Block.

If you are just starting out w/clear stamps the CTMH starter set of blocks is a great deal! Good selection of sizes, you'll be all set, you might only need one or two more blocks (like a really long one) for any other stamps in the future.
I only have maybe 7 sizes of blocks and it's all I need.

I've got 4 blocks:
-1 x 1
-1 x 6.5 (great for making long words!)
-2.5 x 2.5
-4 x 4

I am getting the 2 x 2 and 1 x 3.5
I am also really taking advantage of this promotion. I may actually have enough to count as a ws and get the hostess benefits!
