FREE!




Greetings!
I hope you had a nice weekend!
Last week I shared with you information about the fun and fabulous way CTMH is celebrating National Stamping Month.
Close To My Heart created this awesome stamp set #30yearsofhappy in honor of this fun holiday!
And we can get this stamp set absolutely FREE during the month of September. 
With a minmim of a $30 stamp set order this set is YOURS!
I am really enjoying creating with these mini images.

Here is a Picture My Life Card I came up with last week.
I used the Wanderful Paper Pack (#X7191B), Wanderful Assortment (#X7191C) and the new Arrow Embossing Folder (#Z1993).




The picture above show the front side of the card, as well as the backside.

 ...AND NOW FOR MY EXCLUSIVE SPECIAL!

I have been working hard to earn the Close To My Heart Incentive Trip to Hawaii since last October.  I have just 30 days remaining to earn this trip.  This trip is extra-special to me this year because it takes place over my husband’s birthday AND it is to Hawaii.  My husband, Stan, and I will be celebrating our 20th year of marriage in 2015.  We honeymooned on Hawaii and I would LOVE to take him back to celebrate both his birthday AND our anniversary.  

I can’t earn this trip without your help.  To thank you for your help in reaching my goal, I will be giving away $30 in CTMH product (of YOUR choice) for every minimum $100 order placed.  All you have to do is call or email me your order and I will do the rest for you.  This special is only available through me so you must contact me with your order.  When you place your $100 order, not only will you receive an additional $30 in product of your choice from ME, you will also qualify to purchase the September stamp of the month for just $5.00 AND if you happen to have at least $30 in stamps in that $100 order-you will earn the #30daysofhappy stamp set for free.  That adds another $31.90 value in additional to the $30 of free product I am giving you.  So you will get $61.90 worth of product for just $105!  That is more than 50% of FREE!  This special is only valid on personal orders.  It can not be applied to workshop and class fees.  







I know many of us are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the exclusive ARTFULLY SENT CRICUT BUNDLE.  We are told that is should become available, hopefully, in the next 2 weeks.  You can apply my special to this purchase should it become available, if you did not already take advantage of my special back in July.   Please just email me a.s.a.p if you plan to do this so I can put you on the reservation list for this product.  

I want to thank you, in advance, for your support in helping me earn this trip.  Please feel free to share my special with family and friends.  If you have any questions, please be sure to contact me!

Make it an awesome week!

Thanks for your support, 
Amy

I am having SO MUCH FUN creating with the new papers, embellishments and stamps found throughout the pages of this new publication.

I am forming new monthly scrapbook clubs that will begin next month.  Currently I have a group meeting on Thursday evenings 6:30-9:00 p.m.  I am open to a morning class for those who prefer to meet during the morning hours.  My classes are FREE- you only purchase the products you need to create the layouts.  Kits are available to go , as well.  So if you live long distance or are unable to attend monthly classes you can still be part of the fun!  

There are lots of perks for being in one of my scrapbook clubs.  You get a FREE Annual Inspirations Idea Book ($6.95 value) for as long as you are in the club, you get exclusive cutting diagrams to create 3 exclusive layouts each month, you will have the opportunity to be a hostess one month during your scrapbook club session and earn a FREE SHOPPING SPREE in the Annual Inspiration Idea Book AND I will purchase the Stamp of the Month for you the month you are hostess!  There are a few more perks I would love to share with you.  Contact me to learn about them!   And did I tell you that my instruction is FREE-you only pay for your product each month!

I am currently working very hard to earn the Close To my Heart incentive trip to Hawaii.  My husband and I are celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary in 2015 and I would love to take him on this trip in honor of this milestone.  The trip also takes place over his birthday.  All those who join my scrapbook club will actually be helping me to earn the remaining points (I only have until September 30th to earn this trip).  Contact me to learn about a few other surprises I have in store for you -my way of saying THANK YOU for your support!  All perks and club info are available to long distance people and those unable to attend classes, as well!

In September we will be working with the Chalk It Up Kit.   I love how this kit leans itself towards a "School Theme" kit BUT is so versatile I was able to highlight photos taken at the CTMH convention this summer on one of the layouts.  These layouts are suitable for just about any theme!  The colors are unique and oh so hip and fun!

Below you will find the shopping list and below that are photos of the layouts we will be creating.

A Great Way to Organize!

Happy Friday!

If you are a regular visitor to my blog than you know about the awesome special Close To My Heart is hosting all month long.  For each Picture My Life Kit you purchase-you can purchase a pack of page protectors of your choice for just $3.00!  WOW!  I just LOVE an AWESOME DEAL!

I am a big fan of the Picture My Life system for so many reasons.  Fellow consultant, Sherri Rottler, created a Picture My Life Top Ten List that I agree wiht 100%.  I'd like to share it with you now.


  1. Faster, Simpler, Easier!  Create full albums quickly or take a little more time to dress it up – or a little of both – they are super flexible.
  2. Mix & Match your pages!  Your album will still look great – and actually be more interesting – when you use a variety of different types of scrapbook styles – as long as they all have a commonality (the awesome CTMH look!):  Traditional pages, PML Divided Protectors, Stamp to create custom made cards, and even our Studio J On-line Scrapbooking (as well as custom cards made there) – will all blend beautifully together.  Because of our exclusive line of colors and the high quality CTMH look, you don’t have to be stuck with the boring, same look and style on every page.
  3. Great Value!  You get 96 different patterns/designs on 122 cards to give you lots of choices.  You’ll discover awesome focal points, titles, quotes, sayings, etc.  Then don’t forget to cut up your cards to use as Background & Texture paper, tags, banners, etc. and save all your pieces for use on future projects.  There’s so much you can do with each kit!
  4. Use on all your favorite Papercrafting Projects!  Enjoy new inspiration from these cards on quick & beautiful projects like: home decor items, gifts, cards, tags, etc.
  5. Great Titles and Sayings!  Great for Scrapbooking but also use them on Greeting cards, etc.
  6. Awesome Icons! Be inspired by the fun elements on these unique cards!
  7. Perfect for beginners!  Since each kit comes with a large variety of page protectors and 122 cards, plus a full 12×12 2-sided page, you can get started right away without needing a lot of extra supplies!
  8. Perfect for Discouraged Scrapbookers or those who have lost their mojo!   If you’ve felt overwhelmed about the time, cost and mess or about getting “behind” on your scrapbooking, PML is just what you need!  Give it a try – from now on you’ll be excited to scrapbook your families events!
  9. Perfect for the Pro!  No matter what your level of Papercrafting skills or experience is, PML will work for you! But if you enjoy puzzles, paper piecing, quilting, or just working with beautiful paper & textures, you’re going to LOVE it!
  10. Perfect Gift!  At this price and value, you’re friends and family will be thrilled getting one or more of these kits as a gift – for occasions like:  wedding, baby, graduation, birthday, Christmas, and so many more!  Also, consider the value of splitting kits and/or mix & matching kits to give (and get!) more variety.
I am looking forward to teaching a class on April 24th using the Picture My Life System.  It is going to be a fun and informative and PRODUCTIVE class.  If you missed the registration for this but are interested in attending a future class please feel free to let me know.  A September class is already in the planning process!

As mentioned, each Picture My Life Kit kit comes with 122 cards.  I am learning how to how fun mixing and matching cards from different kits.  I found that it is a MUST to have a good organization system for my cards.  If I keep them organized than I am more apt to use them.  My daughter, Payton, was a super-star and took some time and organized my cards into the Close To My Heart medium organizer.  She created divider tabs and set up my organizer perfectly.  I love how the organizer has a handle so I can easily carry it with me wherever I want to work.  Just the other night I was working on projects using my cards in the family room.  It was so simple to carry my organizer into the family room and pick and choose the cards I needed all while watching a movie with the family.

This medium organizer is also the perfect place to store my Crush Books and supplies.  Yes, the medium organizer is a MUST HAVE !




You can order your medium organizer HERE!

Happy Organizing!!!!!!
