Creative Challenge

I’m doing a creative challenge in my customer FB group. You’ll want to hop in and play because you could win a $25.00 shopping spree (No consultants please.) I was inspired to create these card by my upline. I made them with the Hawthorn papers, the Hawthorn Scrapbooking Stamp Set and Thin Cut Dies, Share the Season Binder Clip Label Thin Cut, along with several of the new ink pad colors. The leaves are done with the “Rock and Roll” technique where you use a lighter ink color and then roll the edges of the stamp in a darker color. Use several shimmer brushes to create the splattered look.

Here’s the details:

*Create your own version which can be the same as mine or different.
*Use 90% CTMH products as this is my CTMH Special Peeps group.
*You have all month to create.
*I’ll create an album you can add them to.
*When you post, put the add #septcardchallenge
*You can enter up to 3 times/month.
*The winner will be announced in the first week of the following month.
*You will win a $25.00 CTMH Hostess Credit shopping spree on your next order!!

Interested in playing? Make sure to join my FB group because that’s where you’ll be posting your entries!!

Random Acts of Cardness

Random Acts of Cardness offers us a chance to reach out and let someone know you are thinking of them. In life’s crazy, sometimes one can feel like you are not seen or heard. A random act of kindness can change anyone’s day. This card set helps you do that. Look at these amazing sayings:

I have cut a number of the stamps up so I can get more use out of them (and not have to mask). This card uses the thin cut die from this month’s special, Share The Seasons:

Here is CTMH’s take on Random Acts of Cardness:

More to come on the Random Acts of Cardness. Remember if you purchase it for $5.00 with a $50.00 order, you will get a free Kit of the Month with your Happy Mail!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!

CTMH Complete Creativity!

We have a fun, new cartridge from Cricut (plus they have “unretired” the digital images of the other cartridges) – Complete Creativity! They have also made us Cricut Affiliates so while you can get to purchase the cartridge from my CTMH Website, you’ll be taken directly Cricut.com to complete the purchase separately from other items. You can shop for anything you need from the Cricut site as well. Here are the images:

Here’s some close ups of the projects:

There is a lot of fun in the cartridge! When you purchase this from me, you’ll need to forward me your receipt to participate in Happy Mail! =)

Hugs and Happy Creating!!

September is here with a lot of new fun for CTMH!

September is here and I’m hoping that the weather of last week continues. Fall is my favorite season. Pumpkin Spice Lattes, boots, chill in the air (maybe), and cropping season starts! Change. Speaking of Change, CTMH has changed things up! Read carefully so you’ll know how things work! Look at the covers of the Idea Books and you know CTMH is ready for fall!

We have a new Cricut Cartridge coming soon. I am now a Cricut Affiliate and if you do not have one who’s link you use, please use my link to shop from Cricut. This is the only way I’ll be compensated when you purchase the CTMH Collections and more! CRICUT LINK

Share the Season – Celebrate National Stamping Month

Share the Season Special is just too much fun! You can buy the pieces separately or in two different bundles. One bundle has the stamps sets only for 20% off and the other bundle has it all for 30% off! This is another rabbit hole and the creating you can do with these thin cut dies is endless. More art to come.

Say “Yes” to the adventure! What have you got to lose? Nothing. It’s always a good time to sign up to be a Close To My Heart Consultant, but August 2019, is a REALLY awesome time to join with this sweet deal:

 During the month of August, you can become a consultant for just $35 with a No-Kit Enrollment option! They don’t offer this every often so you’ll want to take advantage of this, especially if you are a consultant returning to CTMH. You may not need a kit, just a freshen up on the kit.

You will receive $35 in CTMH Cash, absolutely free, just for signing up! Of course, once you are a consultant, you have the opportunity to earn money by selling our amazing products and will get a 22% discount on everything you purchase for yourself! The CTMH Cash is what you use to purchase eligible supplies. Plus, I’ve got my own incentive plan used to backup the CTMH Fast Start plan. We are going up adjust it a little for everyone who sign up with me in August! Let me tell you about my story first:

Years ago, I met Jeanette Lynton and decided to start my adventure with Close To My Heart. I started to have access to top quality products at a discount. You see, I’d been stamping since 1987. We were moving to Guam in a few months and I was worried I won’t have access to good supplies for my crafting.

Never did I envision the adventure I would be on the past 19 years. I’m so blessed that I said “Yes” to the adventure and did not miss out! I never meant for it to be a business. In fact, the best things from my adventure are the life-long friendships, amazing inspiration from my peers, and my discount on reliably, the best paper crafting products in the industry offers.

Because my husband was active duty, we have moved two times and there will be a third one at some point in time. We’ve had other life adventures like having a baby, parent’s ill/passing, to name a few. CTMH as always been flexible. It’s been a hobby when I needed to be and a business at other times. This is another blessing for us.

I love this pictures of the heart made with hands, above. At Convention, a few weeks ago, my upline, Naomi Smith (Leader of the Connected Hearts) had us make a heart shape with people and make a heart with our hands for the team picture. Here’s the Connect Hearts Team (Naomi is the leader and I’m on her front line).

You have a choice this month to join the adventure. You can choose the “No-Kit Option” – paying $35.00 and getting $35.00 of CTMH Cash to build your own collection to create with.

You can also choose the option of the full kit, $70.00, and you’ll receive $171 of product PLUS $50.00 of CTMH Cash to round out your kit!

Be one of the ones to say “Yes” to the adventure! I can tell you after 19 years, you won’t regret it!
