October Close To My Heart Specials


Oh how I love this time of year.  The world bursts with red, yellow and orange colors.  The outdoor temperature starts to cool down and we anticipate Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hannuakah, Christmas and the New Year.

Close to my Heart has some wonderful specials during the month October that I think you are going to be excited about!

Have you been thinking about having an Online or Home Gathering?  

We love rewarding our Hostesses, and our Hostess Rewards program is one of the most generous programs out there. During the month of October, in addition to earning free and discounted products, Hostesses have another fantastic option for using their Hostess Rewards credit: applying it toward a New Consultant Kit! It’s the perfect time for hosting your own Close To My Heart Gathering—it could open the door to a rewarding new opportunity!

By earning $75 in Hostess Rewards (a $450 Gathering), you will have enough credit to get the Consultant Kit FREE - and two half-price items!  The value of the Consultant Kit is $200 PLUS you get an additional $50 in Select Product Credit (or Hostess Rewards) as part of the New Consultant Kit!

So let's break this down...

Invite your friends for an Online or Home Gathering. 
You could also host a private workshop/class.
Gather $450 in orders.

You can take advantage of this wonderful special by hosting an in-person gathering or even a private workshop.  Both can be held at my studio here in my home so you don't need to worry about cleaning or cooking.  You can also host an online gathering or place your own qualifying gathering order!

But it doesn't stop with sending you the Consultant Kit.  Not only do you have the support of the comprehensive Online Office, but you will have the full support of my team, the Heart-Throb's! We are scattered across a handful of States but we meet daily on our exclusive Facebook page.  I host a local monthly team gathering that we also record via Facebook live.  This allows that ALL Heart-Throb's (no matter where your home is) can be a part of your time together!

Want to learn more?  Please contact me.  I would love to chat with you about this amazing opportunity.

The October Stamp of the Month is color all Color Enthusiast of all ages!  This set of 7 images is perfect for the holidays.  Use it to create gift tags, gift wrap, scrapbook layouts and cards.  You can color in the images or create projects and allow whomever you gift them to the pleasure of coloring in the images.  Why not add 3-4 Shin Hin Touch Markers along with your stamp, stamped projects and gifts.  This adds a nice addition to your gift.  

Here is a layout created with the Yuletide Joy Stamp Set:

It's going to be an awesome month!

October Scrapbook Class!


In October we will be creating with the Jeepers Creepers Kit.  What a playful kit this is!  I think you are going to enjoy creating with it.  I especially love the little eyes in the assortment pack! You will use 2 different pocket page protector plus designs with this kit.  I also used some of the left over papers to create 9 cards this month!  These cards are generic-they can be used for any occasion.  I love the hello/thanks thin cuts and thought they worked perfectly.  I hope you like them, too!

Class will be held on OCTOBER 13th.  We are meeting early in October because my parents will be visiting.  Thus, I will be placing the orders on OCTOBER 3rd so PRETTY PLEASE have your order to me no later than Sunday! 

Have a friend I do not know?  I will give a 10% discount for each friend who registers with you.  After all, it is more fun to create alongside a friend!  If you have not been to one of my classes in the last 12 months than I would like to offer you a 10% discount as well!

I am forming new scrapbook clubs that will begin in NOVEMBER.  Being a member of Scrapbook Club entitles you to a minimum $25 FREE shopping Spree, the math you are hostess,  a FREE stamp of the month when you are hostess, Free Idea books while you are a member and fabulous layout patterns!  The only requirement is that you place a minimum $35 order each month for the duration of the session (usually 6 months).  I always provide a shopping list for each month's pages and then there are optional add-on products.  If you do not  want the kit of a specific month you can place a minimum $35 order.   All classes are held in my Stamp/Scrap Studio.  You can participate long distance via Kits To Go!  Contact me to sign up today!
