$810 for FREE - It's True!

This special might sound too good to be true...but it's not.  It's "too good", but it's also TRUE!

I usually don't announce the Close To My Heart specials until the day they begin. The one I am announcing today is an exception. This one is too good not to tell you about NOW so that you can start preparing.  You'll need $99 start with and you can
get over $810 in products and money back with this deal (including a refund of your $99 initial cost).   Hold on to your hats!  Keep reading for details...

Thinking about joining Close To My Heart? March is the month to do it!  Wait until March 1, and then click here to take advantage of the deal below.

1.   During the month of March, new Consultants who enroll will receive a FREE shoulder tote ($26.95 value) in their New Consultant Kit. The kit is only $99 and includes about $370 in products and supplies. When you add the shoulder tote, you are getting over $396 in products and supplies for your $99!

2.  Additionally, new Consultants who remit $300 worth of commissionable sales in their first 40 days after their New Consultant Kit ships will receive the rolling tote ($149.95 value) for FREE! You minimum commission would be $66 on your sales or purchases as well!  When you add all of that together, that gives you over $612 in products, supplies and commissions for your $99 kit cost.

Description of rolling tote:  Durable rolling bag designed to hold organizers in various sizes. Top zips all the way down for easy loading. Front pocket sized to fit 12" × 12" paper, plus two additional side pockets to store more! Finished size 25½" × 16" ×17½". Some assembly required.  As you can see in the photo above, they perfectly fit the Close To My Heart small, medium and large organizers.

Here is how you put the tote together:

 3.  As if that weren't enough, if you remit $1200 worth of commissionable sales in your first 90 days, CTMH will also refund your $99 kit cost!  Add to that the minimum of $264 you will earn in commissions on that and you are getting over $810 in products, supplies and commissions for FREE!

I've created a chart to help you understand a bit better:

I know I already posted about it once - but I did not have the chart yet - this just makes a bit clearer for you. I also did not want you to miss this chance. These totes and organizers can be used for so much more than just scrapbooking and card making. Even if you are in the business of Direct Sales. Just think about what you can "tote" around! All that jewelry, makeup and so many other items could go into that stylish tote and organizers. Let me show you how easy it would be to get you organized and make quick and easy "Thank you" cards for you customers and hostesses!

Some Valentine's and more cardwork shop in February

Tonight, Feb. 12, 7 pm to 9 pm,  we will make some more Valentine's cards, but I will sneak in a Thank you card or a Spring Card - you will just have to be surprised! Everybody who attended last month loved the WOTG kits. You may want to check those out on my website to see what you will get in one of those kits. We normally make at least 3 project.

The fee will be $10, that will cover the supplies for the cards and the fee for the meetup group. Please RSVP as soon as possible to hold your spot, I always have several people attend who are not part of the meetup group, thanks. Space is limited - I already have several people who said, they want to come! Please let me know if you prefer a morning or evening class - I may add a morning class if I have enough interest for it.

Please let me know if you would like me to add a scrapbooking class as well. Several people have expressed an interest in that. I will also need to know if you will be available in the morning or evening.

If you do not have any of the items below, please contact me and I can help you get them either ordered or let you know which of the items we will use that evening. Check my website for the items you may want to stock your toolbox with :).

Your basic tool kit for scrapbook or card classes should be:


favorite adhesive: tombow style adhesive, glue dots, glue pen

foam mounting tape

12" trimmer

bone folder



cutting mat

exacto knife


piercing tool

sponging and sanding tool

corner rounder

You can always order additional items at my website before you come to class :) and I always have extra supplies on hand, but things will go smoother if you have your own items with you. I will have all the other supplies for you like paper, embellishments, etc.

Thanks, hope to hear from you soon!

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!

A scrapbooker's quilting bee!
