Be A Close To My Heart Consultant

When I became a Close To My Heart Consultant, I had no clue where the decision would lead me.  Five years and all I have to say is what a happy path I've been on.  I have met so many wonderful people, enjoyed the excitement of several CTMH events and grown as an artist and person.

Saturday, the Saving Memories Team, along with our fearless leader from the Paper Dolls held a wonderful team meeting at my Studio.  I was truly reminded of the friendships and opportunities that Close To My Heart has been directly responsible for creating.  And, in honor of that event, I've created this card featuring yet another sneak peek at new product that will be available in just a few days.

The paper is from one of the new paper packets called Laughing Lola, the Stamp is new and see that strip at the bottom???  That is a new CTMH punch!

Pictured here are a several of the team members busy working on one of the projects from the Creative Session.  We also discussed business along with a lot of laughter, food and fun.  The Memory Savers are a great team of dedicated gals who enjoy each others company.  We are active and support one another.  You'll never feel alone as a Consultant.  If this is the kind of opportunity you are looking for...whether it be just to get the discount on great product or to actually start your own business, contact me.  For $49.00 you can get started with the Consultant Kit that contains approximately $150 in product.  Email me for more information.  For Now, Happy Crafting!

CTMH Frosted Sneak Peek

This is just another quick and simple sneak peek at another product to be released in the August 1st Fall/Winter Close To My Heart Idea Book.  As usual, I have to run off to work in a little while and actually have a long day.  After my floral shift, I have a paper-Ed class with 3 lovely ladies.  I won't be home until the store closes.  I was able to get this card done first thing this morning.

OK, what are you seeing new here...  :o)  The pattern paper is from the upcoming paper packet called "Frosted."  The minute I saw it I went nuts over it.  Wait until you see more.  It is terrific.  The candle image and sentiment are also from one of the new My Acrylix sets, too.  Love, Love, Love.  When I first saw Frosted, I immediately thought of Ponderosa Pine card stock.  CTMH does not feature it with this color, but I think it works.  What do you think?  That is the beauty of many possibilities.

Getting excited about the new Idea Book?  I sure am thrilled with it.  Don't forget to keep checking back as August 1st draws near.  By the way, don't forget that some old favorites will be discontinues effective July 31st, so if you are in need of any current supplies, stop by my website and get them before it is too late.  For Now, Happy Crafting!

Introducing CTMH Artbooking A Little Sneak Peek!

Yesterday a box of Close To My Heart goodies arrived at on my doorstep!  One of the best things in that big box with a plastic bag with the new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  Available from my website on August 1st, this is just a little sneak peek at what you can do with it.

It has been such a hot summer here in Philadelphia, that I thought it would be fun to make a winter card.  Notice the lattice work mat?  Well, that is one of the terrific features you can create using the new cartridge.  Contained within the cartridge are countless overlays and scrapbook pages.  The beauty of the cartridge is the programing...You select the size of the scrapbook album you wish to make and hit real dial size and everything on the key will fit.  No more wasted paper or miscuts!  WOW!!!  You know how much time and money that will save?

Now, this is a card you say, not a scrapbook page.  Yes, it is!  I didn't have time to create a layout, so I did a little figuring and converted one of the layout overlays into card size.  Artbooking is not for scrapbooks alone.  In the near future, I will post how I figured it out.  In the mean time, a few more fun facts about this card...the snowflake was also cut using the Artbooking.  That adorable polar bear is in one of the soon to be released stamp sets.  He was stamped using the Archival Black ink and lightly colored with the CTMH Alcohol Markers.  By the way, that is Prisma Glitter and Liquid Applique on the bottom to create the snow.

Keep checking back before August 1st for more peeks at upcoming new CTMH products.  When you purchase the new Artbooking Cartridge, remember, is works for both scrapbooks and cards. And, it is not always about the is about the customer service and the friendships you build while using Close To My Heart products.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
