Goodies :)

Hello Ladies (& gentlemen if any of you read this..)
Hope you've all had time to get some scrapbooking in .. I know I have!  And let me tell you, I am LOVIN' it!  3 evenings in this last week I've actually managed to work on some of my layouts, as well as a display album I'm working on for my desk.
I painted & stamped the cover of the album, and I've completed 6 pages (single-sided of course..), THEN, today I received my new stamps of the month and NEW catalogues for Autumn/Winter 2011.  Anyhow,  I'll be showing off the new catalogue and stamps of the month at my Open House, (date to be determined yet), in August of course.
Back to my album in the works... I thought about putting mini layouts on the one side of the page, and a month by month calendar on the flip (back) side, and now I've got a neat little stamp (te he he) that will help me do just that!  I will take pics of my album in the works and post them in the very near future!  I'm excited at all the amazing creations I can come up with... display albums, calendars, I've even come up with my own pattern ideas in my little book :)
Ok, I'm off to plan some more exciting things ... (top secret of course) for my Open House!!!  If anyone is interested in attending, please email to tinawolfe@myctmh.com and I will be sure to fill you in on all the details!
I also want to mention, the August Promo (as you see at the top of my blog), with ANY purchase totalling $55 or more, you are eligible to receive the Stamp of the Month  for ONLY $5.50...PLUS a FREE A-size "Typeface" stamp set for FREE.. Did I mention that?!  In case you're having "sticker-stock" right now.... I repeat... 2 STAMP SETS FOR $5.50 with a qualifying purchase :)  Gotta Love it!!  So gather up your girlfriends and scrapbooking buddies and get ready for a spectacular August!!!!!
Gotta go my friends, talk to you again soon!!

New catalogues + new stuff + lower prices??? = more fun workshops!

Hello again everyone!
Well, while most of the Close to my Heart consultants, directors, and leaders are out at convention (@ Disneyland!!!), I'm at home, reading all their posts and getting sooo excited at all the new products and pics I see :)  Then I realize... What an awesome past-time I have!!
I will upload some of my artwork for you all to see and make sure you check out the YouTube video at the bottom of my blog for some cool ideas! 
The ideas don't end there... contact me for a catalogue and see for yourself!  We've got everything and then some to get your memories preserved for a life-time!  Think... 10, 20, maybe 50 years down the road when you're sitting with your family looking at all your photo books; will you remember what's happening in the pictures?  Will you remember which baby is in this stroller?  What about how you all felt that day at that moment?  Take the time now to journal these memories so you can pass them on for generations to come!  Trust me, I have 3 kids and their ages are 9,7, & 4.  I have a hard time now already trying to figure out which baby is which daughter!  Pretty sad considering I'm only 30-something :) 
Well, this past week, I've made 2 cards for a very special anniversary, and helped a dear friend make another one.  I can't tell you how much fun it is to get together with friends and brighten up someone's day with a card!  One that you yourself put alot of love into!  I'll try to get pictures up of those as well.

Fun fact for the day... when making cards, lay the paper flat on your hand or tabletop and the paper should naturally curl.  If not, flip it over and look again.  One side will curl up slightly at the edges.  You want to work with that natural curl and make sure you fold your card base in that direction.  :)
Happy Scrapbooking All!!

Stay tuned for updates on the new supplies and new catalogue... There may also be some news of a new, lower priced start-up kit... Interested yet?  I know I am... and I'm anxiously awaiting my new catalogues :)
Nite everyone!

It's been a week...

Hello everyone!
Well it's been a week and I've accomplished absolutely NOTHING, in regards to my scrapbooking!  I suppose that's expected when summer begins right?  The weather has been beautiful and the kids are done school now, so naturally things get a little more hectic right? 
I did however, manage to get my Close To My Heart website going so be sure to check that out and the best part is... You can see the idea books, see some creative ideas, the kits and layouts, stamps etc.  And if you feel the urge... you can order right from there!  How easy is that?  I don't know about you ladies, but I would much rather shop online!  No kids whining in the store, no long line ups, no grouchy cashiers... you get the point :) 
So, what do you do once you've checked out the website?  You give me a call and we'll schedule a night for you and your friends to get together (at my house or yours) and we'll put together a plan of what you would be interested in creating.  Then I'll place the order for all the supplies and you invite all your friends, and we'll have such a great time creating whatever it is that you picked for your "gathering".  The best part is ... it's like no other "party" you've ever been to or hosted!  You know how it goes.... you book your party, you invite all your friends, you bake and prepare all kinds of munchies and drinks, the consultant comes and pressures all your friends to buy, buy, buy, before they've even tried any of the product!  You end the night feeling tired, and pressured to push your sales higher and higher and you have tons of food and dishes to clean up, right?  (insert apology here to all my friends who are consultants with other businesses... No offense meant to any of you!)  Well not with me!  That's where Close To My Heart is set apart from all the other home parties.  You DON'T do ANYTHING except invite people!  And it's called a "gathering" not a home party.  You don't make any munchies (after all you don't wanna dirty any of your creations right?)  I will show up on time, and we get started creating!  I will show you and your friends how to create and showcase ALL your precious memories in just a few hours, AND they'll leave with their masterpiece!  (The only cost involved is just a few dollars for the kit, that they get to keep!) 
Then, if you decide you and your friends would like to keep doing something like the gathering monthly, we'll set up a night once (or maybe twice) a month and do it over and over and over again!  Think about it... One night a month, no kids, just friends, and a whole lot of creating masterpieces!  And no pushing for you to get your sales higher and higher! 
Ask me how you can get started with a gathering or start up a monthly "workshop" for you and your friends!  And of course, there is always a bonus for the hostess!  (You don't even have to have the 'most-ess' of anything!) LOL ... ya I know... Lame joke :) 
Anyway, laundry is awaiting to be folded for this busy mom, and chicken breast is waiting to hit the grill, so I'll be back next week!
