New Idea Book!!

Hi everyone,
Tomorrow Close to My Heart's new idea book for Autumn/Winter will debut! :)

Click here to browse all of the new products! Make sure you click on Autumn/Winter 2009 Idea Book!

Consultants get a "sneak peek" of the new products, so I've been playing around with some of them for the past month!

One of my FAVORITE new paper packets is Twitterpated. I just LOVE the warm, autumn feel it gives! I made the following projects from the Twitterpated WOTG kit. CTMH is also re-doing their Workshops on the Go (WOTG) program and I think you all will LOVE it! (More about that after the pictures!)

Aren't those the cutest darn things? HERE is what I LOVE about the new WOTG program. The BEST part about these workshops are perfect for both scrapbookers AND cardmakers alike. The flexibility of the kit is endless. You can create 2 of each of the cards above AND the scrapbook layout shown below.

OR... you can create one of the projects (either the cards or scrapbook layout above) and choose to complete either another scrapbook layout or six more cards. For only $29.95, you'll get all the supplies you need to make both projects or your chosen bonus products. This includes an entire level 2 paper packet, an EXCLUSIVE stamp set available only with purchase of the WOTG kit, designer chocolate ribbon rounds and instructions for all the projects! Plus, as I mentioned before, you will have tons of extra materials left over to use as you please (including the stamp set that you'll get to keep forever). Here's an example of another project I made with some of my leftovers.

Of course, there will be a WOTG kit available with ALL of the new paper packets in the new Idea Book! So I encourage you to take a look at that new idea book and see which ones interest you!

I would love to hold an evening at my home where multiple people purchase the kit and we all work on it together. I think it would be a fun evening for everyone! If $29.95 seems too steep for you, we can work out a deal for a workshop at $19.95. You would still be able to make the projects shown above, but wouldn't have leftover materials and wouldn't have the stamp set to take home.

Please let me know if anyone is interested in the Twitterpated (or any other workshop)! I would love to have you all over for a "crop!"

Enjoy the new book and, as always, contact me for orders/questions/comments, etc!

Everyday Celebration!!

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to let you know about the promotion that Close To My Heart is running this month. In honor of "National Stamping Month," if you purchase $60.00 worth of My Acrylix stamp products, you'll get this card kit completely free!

The kit can also be purchased at it's full retail value of $39.95 as well. The kit comes with an exclusive stamp set, paper, embellishments, distressing ink and envelopes as well as complete instructions! All of this allows you to make 16 cards that are truly perfect for any occasion. Plus, you'll be able to keep the stamp set forever as well as the instructions so you can recreate the cards using different papers and embellishments as you please! I recently just finished making all of the cards in the kit. Here are a few pictures of the creations!

I am so excited to share this card kit with you. I just love it's versatility and how EASY it was to make all of these precious cards that I can send to those I love. Please let me know if you're interested in purchasing the kit or earning it for FREE!

Happy Scrapping!

**P.S. Make sure to check back on Tuesday, September 1! The NEW Autumn/Winter Idea Book will make its debut and I'll be sharing some new products and projects with you on the blog!

It's Only The Beginning!

Hi everyone!  As many of you may know, I have been scrapbooking for years.  It is something I really love to do.  Recently, I signed on to be a consultant with Close To My Heart(CTMH) which is a papercrafting company.  I had never wanted to sign up for a direct sales company as I never wanted to have to keep a stock, meet monthly minimums, etc.  Well, with CTMH I never have to do any of those things!  It's great.  I am able to be a part of the company solely to use it's resources for myself to become a better scrapbooker or, if I want, to share with others my love of preserving memories!  With the second-to-none quality and the incredible innovations in the world of scrapbooking that CTMH offers, I am EXCITED to share all we have to offer with you! 

 I hope you will follow the blog as I update you with pictures of scrapbook pages I have made using CTMH products and their revolutionary how-to programs.  I will also be making cards with the CTMH products. If you like what you see, I encourage you to log on to and look at our "Idea Book."  The current book ends August 31 and the NEW book goes live September 1, so make sure to check back and see our newest items (including lots of products for the holidays!!)  If you ever want to order anything,  please let me know.  Also, I encourage you to think about holding a gathering.  Gatherings are a fun and easy way for you to get FREE CTMH products!  Even if you're too far away from me or don't have the time to host an actual party, you might think about hosting a "party in a box."  All you do is take your catalog in to work (or wherever) and have all your friends place orders.  Then, YOU get the rewards back in FREE CTMH product.  

Lastly, I will be posting stationery that I make for others.  I am beginning to delve into my very own custom invitation business and am excited to share this with you all.  I am able to do wedding invitations, birthday party invitations, save-the-dates, birth announcements, graduation announcements, YOU NAME IT! :)

I am so excited to share all I learn and do with you.  Thanks for reading!
