Postcard Perfect and Beyond

Postcard Perfect and Beyond!

I thought May was going to be a slower month around here, however, CTMH has shown me otherwise!  LOL.  Of course being gone the 4 times over the past 6 weeks for several days at a time, has created a time crunch for me.  This is National Scrapbooking Month and I’m so loving this paper pack and the workshops I’ve helped proof from Studio Sus and some of my other favorite artists.  Here’s Monica from the Corporate Office sharing the collection:

May Stamp of the Month (SOM)

I love jar images for stamps.  There is so much you can do with them. It’s been a bit since we’ve had an invitation stamp set so this is good timing.  Use this set to create invites for a late Spring or Summer party.  Use the invite piece for any party. Use the other stamps for so much more.  You can purchase the set for $17.95 or for $5.00 with a qualifying purchase of $50.00 of product.  When you get the set for $5.00, you’ll get the SOM Card Kit for free!


Set of 25
Recommended My Acrylix® blocks:
1″ × 1″ (Y1000), 1″ × 3½” (Y1002), 2″ × 2″ (Y1003), 1″ × 6½” (Y1005), 4″ × 5″ (Y1012)

Featured Paper Pack – Beautiful Friendship

Isn’t this just amazing?  It’s the first of 4 new paper packs in the Seasonal Expressions.  By default of the tea paper, stamps, and compliments, it will be my favorite!

Thanks for stopping by to see all that is new in May.  Enjoy this Postcard Perfect Collection.  With all the different workshop you can choose from, you’ll be sure to find it fun and a way to get some great memories scrapped.

Welcome 2018!!

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:

January Stamp of the Month (SOM) – S1801 Grown and Bloom

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.  =)

Great Time To Treat Yourself!

Great Time to Treat Yourself

I know you are thinking “New Consultant Kit…really?”.  But yes, really.  For $75.00 investment, you receive $214.00 of product and supplies.  Part of this is $50.00 of “CTMH Cash” or “Select Product Credit”, which you can use immediately, to pick out supplies you want for your New Consultant Kit.  Love that you get to design your own kit by picking out the supplies you can envision using or that you need.

Read this for more thoughts to consider. 

I have been with CTMH for 15+ years now. I love to scrapbook, make cards, and paper craft. CTMH has been with me for 3 different moves actually helping my transitions to communities easier. I’ve earned 3 incentive trips (a paid vacation for 2!!) when I’ve been able to work the business (20+hours a week). I’ve been able to support my addiction to paper when I’ve been on my own. The biggest blessings are the friendships and people I’ve come to know both as fellow consultants and as customers.
