A Grand Opportunity!

There are so many wonderful things happening with Close to My Heart during this month of April.  Rather than share it all with you in the same email, I thought it would be more exciting to sprinkle the goodness to you one morsel at a time!

So here's my next tidbit of info for you:

- Everyone who signs up in April will be a consultant receiving a minimum of a 22% discount at least until the end of September (the usual 6 months). Of course you will want to stay past that (and it's easy to do!), but that much is guaranteed.
- Anyone who signs up in April can order from FIVE different idea books in that time frame. There will be two annual catalogs and three seasonal mini-catalogs available from April to September (last month of Expressions 1, Expressions 2, Holiday Expressions, 2016-17 Annual Idea Book and 2017-18 Annual Idea Book!).
- New consultants get to start ordering from the new product in Expressions 2 at a discount in April vs. waiting until May and paying full price as a customer.
-New consultants get to start ordering Live Beautifully items NOW.
- Consultants who sign up in April get a FREE Cut Above kit of their choice.  This product is the PERFECT KIT to use when introdicing CTMH to your potential customers.  It's Fast. It's Easy. It's super affordable.  It's Fabulous. It's FUN!
- Consultants who sign up in April still have an opportunity to sign up for convention (registration closes April 30).
- Consultants who sign up in April get Seasonal Expressions 2 catalogs in their kit. This gives them an opportunity to get people excited about the May product release...BECAUSE, in May, when a hostess submits $350 in orders she gets a FREE Live Beautifully Cut Above kit. More FREEEEEEEEE stuff. Not to mention that at that level of sales there's one half priced item and $60 in FREE product. There's also $5 put in the New Consultant's SPC "bank account" when you reach $350 in sales (and it goes up to $25 at $400!). Did you know that Consultants can also be hostesses? SCORE!
-Consultants who sign up in April give themselves the BEST chance at a really strong start with many excited hostesses for gatherings in May because of the May specials! You have April to book up that calendar for May and insure GREAT sales, which equals a GREAT start!

Are you intrigued?  Interested?  Do you have any questions?  Reach out to me so we can chat!  It would be a true honor if you would join my Close To My Heart Family!

15 Minute Memories!

April Greetings!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and your week is off to a great start!
The other day I sent out information about my all day "LIVE BEAUTIFULLY" event I am hosting here at my studio on May 21st. I hope y'all had a chance to read the details and will plan to participate. Register early to hold your spot!
To all those unable to attend the event, I am offering Kits To Go!
This evening I am sharing information about a super cool special that is happening during the month of April. It's called "15-MINUTE MEMORIES"...and it's perfect for the seasoned memory keeper, as well as, the beginner scrapbookers and those wanting to get started on preserving some special memories. It's also spot on for card makers and paper crafters of all levels. This special is also for ALL AGES! 

Back in January Close To My Heart introduced a fabulous new kit. The CUT ABOVE layout kits make it super easy to document the moments in life that you always want to remember. Easy-to-follow instructions guide you in using pre-cut pieces to assemble pages as beautiful as your memories. Slide additional photos into pocket pages alongside coordinating cards to keep the story going. Preserving your memories can be easy and beautiful at the same time with Cut Above!

There are currently 2 Cut Above Kits to purchase. And BOTH kits are on sale 50% off the entire month of April! The "Little One" Cut Above Kit has a baby boy look and feel to it. However, I used this kit to document some photos of my teenager ballerina! I love how truly versatile CTMH products are!
The second kit available is called "Forever & Always" . This has a wedding theme to it. But it is also very apprpriate for prom, dance recital/competition, Easter, Mother's Day, Birthday, Family photo shoot, sorority function, First Communion, Confirmation. picnic and so much more!
The pieces you receive in these kits will also allow you to create one-of-a-kind cards! The possibilities are endless!
Each Kit Includes:
*2 12 x 12 printed base pages
*Die-Cut Paper Pieces
*Title and Embellishment stickers
*12 Coordinating pocket cards
*2 12 x 12 Memory Protectors
*2 Pocket-Style Memory Protector
You get all of this for just $7.48 (plus s/t)!!!!! These kits are normally priced at $14.95.
Choose you kit (why not get BOTH kits since they are 50% off this month) and then follow the simple assembly instructions to create your beautiful two-age layout in minutes. Add even more memories using the coordinating pocket cards and pocket memory protectors included in the kit. You are going to LOVE how quickly you can preserve your memories with Cut Above!
Here is the layout I created using dance photos of my daughter.
Your name will go into a drawing for a NEW CUT ABOVE KIT that is coming out in MAY for each kit you purchase this month. There are two new kits coming in May that you can choose from if your name it drawn (must have a minimum of 10 kits sold for the drawing to take place). Drawing will take place on May 1st. Winner will be notified via email.
