Being a Consultant with Close To My Heart

In May of this year, I marked my five-year anniversary as a consultant with Close To My Heart. I absolutely love this company, and I have had a great time over the past five years. I initially signed up mostly to get the discount for myself, but I have really enjoyed turning it into a successful business over the past year or so. I have met some great friends, learned so much, and been able to make beautiful cards and scrapbook layouts with CTMH's fabulous product lines. I now have a monthly hostess club running, and I have ladies who get together every month to preserve their memories and make cards to send to loved ones.

I also want to start building my team. In the past I haven't been very bold about sharing the CTMH opportunity because I didn't want to bother people, but I am realizing that I'm not bothering people if I'm sharing something with them that they may love! I want to get better at sharing this opportunity because it's so wonderful! Close To My Heart is a great company that really supports their consultants, and I think anyone who joins them as a consultant will really benefit from and love the experience.

If you love scrapbooking, cardmaking, or any other type of paper crafting, you should really consider signing up with Close To My Heart. As I've said before, they are very supportive and helpful to their consultants, and this company really tries to make a difference with their Operation Smile donations and support. They sell high-quality products, and we have the best acrylic stamps in the industry! They are always on-trend and are constantly requesting feedback from consultants and willing to change things to meet our needs. In addition to all that, we get lots of free product! And as a new consultant, you'll get a great starter kit to get you going!

The kit for new consultants is only $75, but you will receive over $200 in product! Plus, you will get an additional $50 in product credit to spend on new products of your choice!

But wait - it gets better! If you sign up in July, Close To My Heart is throwing in another $30+ in free product!

When you sign up in July, you will receive your choice of a new Fundamentals paper packet bundled with its coordinating complements for FREE! This is a great way to get your business started!

If you are interested in learning more or are wanting to sign up right away, click here or contact me. I would love to talk to you more about the opportunities you can have with Close To My Heart!

July Scrapbooking Workshop - Magical

For my July scrapbooking workshop, we will be using the Workshops Your Way Magical Scrapbooking Kit.

This workshop kit retails for $26.95 and provides you with enough materials to create three 12x12 two-page layouts and one two-page pocket page layout. It also provides you with the paper and embellishments for 9 cards! With this kit you receive a full Magical Paper Packet, 1 pack of Magical Complements, one roll of White Twine, one pack of Magical Sequins, and four sheets of cardstock (3 White Daisy and 1 Sapphire).

Here are the layouts we'll be creating:

In order to participate in the workshop, you will simply need to purchase the Magical workshop ahead of time and bring any necessary tools and adhesive with you. If you would like me to purchase the kit for you, the cost is $35, which covers shipping and tax.

Date and Time:
This workshop is scheduled for Friday, July 29th, and I have two workshop times available that day. You can come from 1:00-3:00 in the afternoon or from 6:30-8:30 in the evening.

Sign-up Deadline:
The deadline for signing up for this workshop is Wednesday, July 27, but you will need to order your kit no later than July 20 in order for it to arrive in time. Space is limited so sign up soon. You can email, call, or text me to sign up.

Optional Additional Services:
$5 - I will provide any adhesive you need, including foam tape.
$5 - I will cut all of your paper ahead of time so you can just assemble and decorate the layouts the day of the workshop. If you would like this option, I need to have your kit by Tuesday, July 26.

This workshop will take place at my home; if you need my address or directions, please contact me.

I will also have information out in the next few days about the additional cards you can make with this kit!

Let me know if you have any questions, and I hope to see you later this month!

July Specials from Close To My Heart

Sorry for the absence from my blog - we moved and then I had a procedure on my eyes, which has left my vision blurry for about two weeks. Hopefully it'll clear up soon, but in the meantime, I'm determined to post something!

July is an exciting month for Close To My Heart. It's the last month for the current Annual Inspirations Idea Book, the July stamp of the month is great, and there's a fabulous special for new consultants!


Retiring Items!

Many stamp sets, paper packets, and accessories are all retiring at the end of July. You can check them all out at the link below. But don't wait too long! All these items are only available while supplies last!


July Stamp of the Month - From the Notebook

Each month you can purchase a new D-size stamp set, available for one month only, for just $5.00! When you place an order of $50 or more in Close To My Heart products, you qualify for this special Stamp of the Month pricing.

This month's stamp of the month is awesome for scrapbooking, but it could also be used on cards. Hopefully I'll be able to post a few ideas later this month!


Early Bird Sign-Up Special!

Join the Close To My Heart family of Consultants this month to get your choice of a FREE Fundamentals paper packet bundled together with its coordinating Complements. These brand new products won’t be released to the public until August, so joining today is your chance to get them first! When you sign up, you also get $50 in Select Product Credit to spend on more new products, including the newest stamps, paper packs, and cardstock colors!

If you have any questions about anything I've mentioned above, or if you would like to sign up as a consultant this month and get the great new free products, please contact me! You can email, call, or text me.
