Annual Inspirations Release Party!

I'm sure you're eager to get your hands on the brand new year-long catalogue Close To My Heart is just about ready to release to all of you. I've been thoroughly enjoying my chance to play with new paper, and accessories, and markers, and stamps, and ... well, you get the idea.  There's a TON of new, beautiful stuff!

You can do all that when you attend my Annual Inspirations Release Party on Wednesday, July 30, at 7pm - 9:30pm.

Touch and feel new products.  Have fun with a Scavenger Hunt/Bingo game.  Play with new markers.  Create a fun little project, which at the time of writing this post I haven't planned yet.  (Better get on that. Cough, cough.)  Sign up for my workshops.  Enter draws for new, yes NEW, product and some older stuff, too. 

Bring someone new to CTMH and/or me and you could win a Medium Organizer!

I'll also have some bargains ready for you to snatch up.  I will be adding a bunch of new stamps to my sale bins as well as some other goodies.

There are two ways to register for this event.  1.) You can call or email me directly.  Or 2.)  RSVP Yes! to my Facebook event.  

See you there!

Get Brand New Products Before Anyone Else!

Did you catch that?  Did you know you could get your hands on brand new product before any of your friends?  You can!  One of the many perks of being a consultant is that you can order brand new product a full month before any of your customers.  But you're not a consultant, you say.  Well, signing up in the month of July also means you get brand spanking new product in your New Consultant Kit!  How awesome is that?!

We now offer two different consultant kits, based on what type of crafting you love to do.  Here is the Card Maker's Kit:

Check out all that gorgeous paper and stamps and markers and embellishments ...  Beautiful!  And here is the Scrapbooker's New Consultant Kit:

So many yummy products to play with!  The products in both these kits were specially selected to help you get your new business off to a great start.  I know you're wondering, "How much?"  Both kits are your's for just $109.  That's a huge deal, especially when you add in all the training and support you'll receive from both our corporate office and from me.

I'd love to have you join our team of exciting and passionate Simply Creating consultants.  Check out the video I made a few months ago.

If you can't see the video, click here to view.  Then go to my website for more information and to sign up.

CTMH: Get 'Em Before They're Gone! (Part 1)

In my last post I mentioned the special deal I have going on this month.  If you missed it, go check it out.  ;)

With our new Annual Inspirations catalogue kicking off August 1, there are a bunch of products that are on their way out.  Did you know there are 250 brand new products in this catalogue???  Wow!  That means some of the items we've already been selling have to go, and some of them are already gone, so I thought I would show some of the great products that are on their way out, but still available.

Paper packets:
For the first time, all the paper packets are on their way out.  That means everything that coordinates with them as well.


Balloon Ride

Ivy Lane


Laughing Lola





Babycakes and ProPlayer are already sold out.  If you want to get your hands on any of these sets, make sure to place your order soon, because they may be almost gone.

Enjoying More Oldies

Here are some more cards I've had in my Photos to Post file.  I created these a while ago, with a very old paper packet, called Miracle.  In fact, I've also used some leftover pieces from a scrapbooking promotion by the same name.  All the main images are Stickese, with some sentiments stamped in Desert Sand.  I also used a lot of Kraft and you'll notice Kraft borders as well.  (Come on, admit it, you have some of those stashed away.)

For this last one, I just added a Cricut-cut shape I hadn't used in previous projects.  Perfect.

You'll notice I kept these very simple.  I only added some Glitz Gel, touches of Pearl Pen and other simple embellishments to some of the cards.  They also don't have a lot of dimension.  I did that so they could mailed easily.

I hope you find some inspiration for quick and easy cards in these photos.  Now, off to finish packing for convention!!!
