Fun Projects with NEW product!

My dear friend, Lisa gave me this heart shaped box filled with mini candy bars while we were rooming together at the Close To My Heart Team Builders Conference.
If you look closely you will see that she used NEW paper to embellish the box and the m
ini candy bars. The name of this kit is "Sophia" and it will be available to purchase on February 1st

(one week from tomorrow). This kit screams pink and green and spring! You are going to love it!
I made these notebooks for Lisa and Michelle using an
other NEW Kit coming out on February 1st. This kit is called "Sweetheart." It has a pink and black color scheme and is going to be perfect for not only Valentine Themed projects but ma
ny others, as well. I used a new stamp set for their monogram. It is called "Token Alphabet" (item #E1020). Oh My! This set is my new favorite. I know I will be using it for many a project! I am also in love all the new ribbons-here I used the big ruffly ribbon in the new Pink Ribbon Collection
(item #Z1384) to wrap up Lisa and Michelle's gifts. I love the vintage touch it adds to the packaging!

If you have not already contacted me for your own copy of the Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book please do TODAY. This is one publication you are not going to want to live without!

Team Builders Conference

As you all know, last week I attended an amazing Close To My Heart conference in Utah. The event was for Directors and above and alot of time was spent on discussing a proposal for a new compensation plan. I am excited about the proposed plan which will go into effect in October of this year. Close To My Heart truly knows how to take care of it's consultants. CTMH is such a classy company-I am so proud to be a part of it! I would love to share the opportunity of becoming a CTMH Consutlant with you. If you are interested in learning more about this exciting "job" (can I really call it a JOB if I am having so much fun with it-it never seems to be like work to me!) please feel free to contact me. I'd love to chat with you.
Besides learning about the proposal, we were able to get creative, eat great
meals and we were defintiely SPOILED with products and gifts. I had two wonderful roommates who made the event that much more fun (love ya Lisa and Michelle!). Below are some photos of all the fun we had. Enjoy!
Happy Weekend!

Find Your Style

Today I wanted to share several cards that were created using the January 2011 Stamp of the Month "Find Your Style. I participated in a swap using this stamp set. These are several of the cards I received in the swap. As always, you can earn all stamp of the month sets FREE or at a discount based on your individual order. However, during the month of January ONLY you can earn this stamp set just by purchasing the NEW "Wings Workshop on the Go" and four other items in the Inspirations brochure! This means you can earn the stamp set (a $26 value) FREE by ordering LESS than the usual $100 order! Contact me today to see how. If you have not gotten a copy of the Inspirations brochure please let me know. I still have a handful here and would love to give one to you!

Happy 2011!!!!!
WOW...has another year really passed us by? It seems like the older I get, the faster the years go. It makes me realize just how important it is to cherish each day and make the most of all LIFE has to offer.
It's a new year and with that comes lots of new projects, product, classes, etc!
As many of you know, my family and I were up in Connecticut celebrating the holidays with my parents, siblings and their families. It was a perfect Christmas...ending with a beautiful snow blizzard which allowed us one extra day up in New England. One thing for sure is...I will ALWAYS be a New England Gal! The snow was the perfect ending to a perfect holiday vacation!
Now we are back home and it is back to reality! I am still trying to get organized and I am anxious to start designing new club projects and classes. I will be posting exciting layouts, cards and projects as soon as I get my box of NEW PRODUCT! CAN'T WAIT!
Stop by again soon to see the JANUARY Stamp of the Month!

Once again...HAPPY, HAPPY New Year!
