Welcome 2018!

2018 ushers in so much fun from a CTMH perspective!!  The Seasonal Expressions 1 for 2018 is live.  National Papercrafting Month is here.  New Stamp of the Month.  So much fun.  =)

National Papercrafting Month — Love Letters

January 2018 Monthly Special

For National Papercrafting Month, we’ve designed a set of beautiful papercrafted monograms décor pieces. Each comes as part of a kit containing the sturdy chipboard letter base, rose gold accents, die-cut floral embellishments, and letter stickers for customizing your final artwork piece. The finished letters are the perfect size for adorning any wall in your home.  Make a monogram art piece, or spell out a whole word!

These versatile letters can also be used together to spell out a whole name or word, which is why if you buy five letter kits, you can choose a sixth kit FREE!

You can also receive your choice of letter kit free by hosting a qualifying party in January or by signing up to be a Consultant!

Seasonal Expression 1 2018

Absolutely beautiful.  Might be my favorite cover in 17 years.  It’s loaded with amazing new paper packs, stamps, embellishments, and more.  Check it out online here!

Featured Paper Pack – Chelsea Gardens

With a $25.00 purchase from my shopping site, you can get the workshop guide electronically, for this wonderful 30-card workshop:

When you purchase the Stamp of the Month for $5.00, you’ll get this free card kit that has been pre-cut.  It will come in your Happy Mail, ready to stamp and assemble as a thank you for your business!!  =)

New Customers!

In January, CTMH is having a new customer contest for consultants! Help me win one of these beautiful shirts by sharing me with your crafty friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, ect!!

A customer will be considered a new customer if they have never placed an order with me and place an order with me for one of the Love Letters in January 2018, or if they have not made a purchase from Close To My Heart in the past two years and place an order with me for one of the Love Letters in January 2018.   Purchasing a Love Letter kit is key to them counting.

What’s in it for you?  When you refer a new to me friend, who places an order for a Love Letter, you will get a free Card Kit or Layout Kit (my choice).  Check out the FB group for my customers only (no consultants please), for more fun!  Everyone placing orders will be participating in the Happy Mail Club so you and your referral wins too!

January things to keep in mind:

  • Free Card Kit when you purchase the January SOM for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase – Check it out.
  • Love Letters – Buy 5 Get 1 Free.
  • Join My Team in January and get a Love Letter of your choice (value $18.95).  There are a few other freebies from me as well.  =)

November’s Just For Fun – up to 40% off.

November is a full of nostalgia! It’s the month of Thanksgiving.  Hopefully, you’ll be able to look back on life and find the things that make you smile.  Those sweet memories of your past.  Grandma’s pie.  Visiting the drug store to get comic books.  Hikes.  Family gatherings.  Birth of child. Watching a child sleep.  Family activities.  Sometimes those memories are not so sweet but oh so important to your fabric of life.  The loss of child or parent.  Rough times in a marriage, job, or with your health.  Some memories are bittersweet – moving, new job, new friends.  They are all significant!  Use this month’s Fundamental Special to stock up on the basics you need for everyday scrapbooking or cardmaking.  Take some time to scrap book those sweet nostalgic memories!   Here are the links to all of the great specials:
