June Special for Close to my Heart

Starting tomorrow, the new consultant sign up special is going to be TWICE AS MUCH as it is today. Whoo hoo! You will have about $65.00 less to spend on brand new products and will definitely get less for your money.

But that's okay. You won't regret not signing up today when you could have bought the whole kit for $65 plus shipping and tax, you won't mind missing out on the You and Me kit that's only available for new consultants who sign up today. You won't wish that you hadn't hesitated starting a new adventure with Close to my Heart on a day when it would have saved you money, right?

Okay then.

Definitely wait until tomorrow. No need to pay less and get more, we all have plenty of money to throw around these days.

(If you get the irony of this post, be smart, sign up today using the link below).

My new Facebook page

I have a Facebook business page, so much better than just a regular Facebook page because we can really focus on scrapbooking, stamping and papercrafting without having to share what we just ate!! On my Facebook business page I have challenges, a question of the day, contests, giveaways and sales. I just started a new series to help motivate you to scrapbook. We're already having a good time, come join us

Use them to add pizazz to your accents.

Use them to hold down your vellum.

Product Spotlight - Buttons!

Today I want to spotlight our Close to my Heart buttons. We have brand new buttons that come in many different shapes, shades and textures. Here's the best part, 72 come in a package!! The really neat thing is that, even with postage and tax, that makes each button just 9 cents! That's a bargain! Buttons are a wonderful addition to your scrapbook pages and cards. They fill spaces, provide balance and add texture. The best way to attach them is with glue dots and the coolest way to thread them is with waxy flax (which I'll spotlight on another day). Our buttons come in many different colors, see them HERE and make sure you click on them to really see how beautiful they are! Remember if you place a $50 order that you can then purchase the wonderful National Scrapbooking Month kit for just $15. I'm going to spotlight that kit this week too. Also, stay tuned for button ideas in tomorrow's post. So what are you waiting for? Get those buttons now!

You and Me Kit card

Even though the new You and Me National Scrapbooking Month kit is for layouts, that doesn't mean you can't change it up and use it for cards. This was one I just whipped together quickly using the paper, embellishments and stamp set from the kit. You can get your kit for $15 if you spend $50 on my website OR you can get it for FREE by signing up as a consultant before May 31st. You will also get $200 in other products for just $65 plus shipping and tax too!

New Consultant Kit

I was asked to make up some artwork for a silent auction so this is what I came up with, a new consultant survival kit. I just love Sophia paper and it was so fun to alter all these items. If you'd like to try out this paper too, find it here.

This is an altered pocket calendar, just $1.00 at the dollar store. Take out the cover that comes with it, use it as a pattern, restaple and you have a beautiful replacement.

I found this notebook at Michael's for a buck. The colored background matched Sophia paper so all I had to do was add a new front.

Here's a nametag already for the person's stamped name. A simple nametag holder was all that was required. I measured it and made an insert.

This cute pen matched the colors perfectly. I actually took apart the box it was in, covered it with paper and then folded it back together again.

This was a little more expensive at Michael's maybe seven or eight dollars but worth it. It was actually better to glue the strips of paper right to the center insert instead of trying to do it all in one piece.

You've seen me decorate Hershey nuggets often in posts on my blog. They always turn out well, throw them in a plastic bag and add a topper and you're done!

Our recipe box is cute as anything, all white and ready for decoration. It even has a magnetic closure. I decorated the outside with paper, ribbons, buttons and chipboard.

This particular box is used not for recipes but for the new consultant's contacts.

Inside I added index cards and made dividers to keep them alphabetized.

A dollar store clipboard is easily decorated with a bit of paper, ribbons and buttons. Make sure it's glued down with a strong adhesive. I used liquid glass.

When someone books a party the new consultant can give them this, it contains invitations, booklets about what a great opportunity it is to sign up for Close to my Heart, some order forms and some treats. I also would give this with some brand new catalogs.

A hostess always gets a gift for doing a party. Here's one which contains a handwritten, handmade card, a mini stamp set and a treat.

Once done the whole kit looks like this!! Love that Sophia paper. By the way, this only took about eight hours to do. Now off it goes for charity.

Happy National Scrapbooking Month

As you know, for National Scrapbooking Month we are offering the new consultant kit for just $65. With shipping and tax it's been running about $83. I have seven new team members so far with more signing up this week. What I'd like to know is WHY NOT YOU?

What is keeping you from getting in on this deal? You have a chance to get $250 - $300 in products for your $65 plus you will have a 22% discount off from all of our products until September 30th EVEN IF you don't put in an order until that last day.

Are you worried about making a minimum? Don't! Like I said, you don't even need to put in an order until Sept. 30th and even then, you don't have to put in an order (but why wouldn't you want the discount so I bet you will).

Did you know that you don't have to do home parties to be a consultant? One option is to just pass a catalog around to your friends. Another is to buy all the products for yourself (at the discount, of course) and just be a hobbyist consultant. You are also welcome to just have an occasional workshop on your home or even a crop and again, just pass the catalog.

If you do want to make money at this position I can help you. I know how to do it and I WILL HELP YOU every step of the way to run your business in the most effective way to get you profit and free products (and even awards)!!

So, what do you think? Is it getting easier to make the decision? I promise there is no Close to my Heart police that will come after your kit if you never buy a single thing (but again, why not take advantage of your big discount)! It's easy to sign up, you just need to fill out THIS FORM.

If you want to hear even more information and special deals sign up for my newsletter (upper right of my blog).

Product Spotlight - Lucky Level Two Assortment

Every few days I'd like to spotlight a product that you may haven't taken a good look at. This is the perfect one to start with because I didn't realize myself how wonderful this was. The Lucky Level Two Assortment is a boatload of decorated chipboard accents. They are meant to go with the Lucky paper set but I think they could go with a lot of the other sets too! I had not purchased this product at all thinking that you only get a few accents in the pack. Boy, was I wrong, look at all you get in just one set and it's ONLY $4.95 for all of these!! Pretty amazing. You can pick your Lucky accents up HERE.

Team Meeting

One of the great things about being a Close to my Heart consultant is all the friends I've made, not only as customers but also my fellow consultants.

We had such fun with make and takes, prizes, awards and business idea talks. Loved it! If you want to become part of a great team like ours, click here to join for just $65!!
