As you know I just returned from the Close To My Heart Convention.  My head is still spinning and I am still flying high from all the new things I learned that I am anxious to share with you!

Have you ever wanted to make money doing what you love?  Have you ever wished you could just scrapbook and paper craft all day long without worrying about your "day" job?  Do you want to stay at home with your kids but just don't know how you could afford to?

Would you like to make new friends or help others learn how to share joy with those individuals who are important to them?

Well...if you have answered "yes" to any of the above questions than I think I may have the solution on how you can do all this and MORE!

Become a CTMH Consultant and let the "Essentials" kit be your guide!  CTMH has changed their consultant kit and now you can begin your CTMH business for just $49.00!  Yup...the Essentials Kit is the key to get you started...TODAY!  With the affordable price of just $49 who wouldn't want?!

The Essentials Kit was everything to meet your crafting and career needs.  It is approximately $130 in retail value! August, while supplies last, you will also receive this GORGEOUS bag (a retail value of $50.00) FREE along with your kit!  These bags will  be available only while supplies last starting August 1st so don't delay.  We actually received these bags at convention and they are the BOMB!  I love that it can be used as a back pack or a shoulder bag or even as a tote bag!  How cool is that?  It has pockets on the inside and plenty of room (even fits 12 x 12 sizes!).  I plan to use mine as my every day bag because it fits everything!

I would love to chat with you, answer any questions you may have and help you get started today.  Please feel free to contact me!  Signing up is super easy.  It can be done right on my website (  I am here to help if you need guidance.  I can even sign you up if that would be easier for you.  Just let me know what I can do to help.  The new Autumn/Winter Idea Book is full of so much.  The time is perfect to embark on this new adventure.  I would be honored to have you as part of my CTMH Heart-Throb Team and CTMH Family!

I spent the past week in Dallas, Texas at the CTMH Convention.  Boy oh Boy do I have so much to share!  Prior to convention I was busy working on preparing for the class I was teaching at Extravaganza (the most favorite part of convention).  It is quite an honor to be selected to teach at this so I did not want to let anyone down.  I do hope I was able to teach my fellow consultants something new that they could go home and share with their customers and team.
CTMH sent me a box of products that will debut in the Autumn/Winter Idea Book on August 1st.  It was so hard to keep these fabulous products a secret!

I absolutely LOVE the new Autumn/Winter Idea Book but I must say that my most favorite is this:

Yes!  CTMH is introducing another EXCLUSIVE Cricut Cartridge!  I have been playing with this for the past 3 months and I am in LOVE!  Founder and CEO, Jeantte Lynton designed this cartridge herself.  It is a must for your Cricut library.
Like the Art Philosophy Bundle, the new ARTISTE Bundles comes with the cartridge, 3 stamp sets and 3 12 x 9 Dimensional Elements in coordinating shapes.
The cartridge contains 700 images, fonts, shapes and 3-D items.  It is a retail value of nearly $125 but only costs $99.00!

Sta tuned for more exciting news over the next several days.  In the meantime...

MARK YOUR CALENDARS for my Unveiling of the NEW AUTUMN/WINTER Idea Book...I will be hosting the first annual SCRAPBOOK WARS!  More details on this fun event will be coming soon but in a nutshell teams will be given a new product to use when creating a scrapbook page.  There will be judges and PRIZES!!!!!  I will have the new Idea Books available and new product on display.  

The date of this event is THURSDAY, AUGUST 9th 6:30-9:00.
