Brand New Annual Inspirations – Woot Woot

My favorite, all new goodness.  Best part?  Two toned cardstock.  Each piece of cardstock will be two shades!  The “dark” side is the “true” color (matches the ink pads) while the lighter side is the accent color.  We went from 40 colors to 80 without costing anyone any more money!  We have a brand new Basic Color Palette.  These colors are just yummy. The Annual Expressions focuses on paper that can be used all year round – Fundamentals!  Look at these amazing colors and papers:

Do you travel? Do you take vacations?  Do you do staycations?   This is the cartridges are for you.  These will be ones that you can use over and over again!!

The Country Digital Collections:
I’m beyond excited about these cartridges.  I can’t thinking of anyone who won’t use them from everything about preserving your precious family vacations, to cards, and even home decor!

Featured Paper of the Month – Jack

Jack be nimble, Jack be quick!  Not quite your nursery rhyme paper here.  This paper is masculine with a capitol “M”.   Camping, outside anything, Boy Scouts, and more. 

You’ll just love the two workshops for this paper pack!  With a $25.00 order from my site you can get either the Card Making Workshop or the Scrapbooking Workshop.  With a $50.00 order, you can get both of these great workshops emailed to you FREE and an entry to the Great Cricut Giveaway for an Air 2 entry.

August Stamp of the Month (SOM) S1708 School Days $17.95 or $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase

This set will last you a life time or at least the entire time your kids are in school or your grandkids are in school.  Because there are no specific dates, it can been used over and over again!  This set is definitely worth getting for $17.95 and it’s even better at $5.00 with your other goodies.

Great Cricut Giveaway Update:

We are getting closer to this really happening and I so hope that I’m giving SOMEONE a Cricut Air 2!!  We have 10,249 points to reach 39,000 points by September 30, 2017!  We can do this. That’s 204 – $50.00 orders left to reach this goal in 60 days!!  With a new Circut Cartridge and downloads, it’s awesomesauce!  Imagine cutting those on your new Air 2??!!

Let’s look at what a $50.00 order gives YOU:

  • 2 Free Workshop files of your choice (you can see the all the ones I have in my customer group on FB) $50.00 value
  • Stamp of the month for $5.00 ($17.95 value)
  • 1 entry into the Great Cricut Giveaway

Wow, there is sure a whole lot of goodness going on in August, making it AWESOME!  Join the fun.  Thank you for being such awesome customers and friends.












Welcome Back Campaign!!

There are some exciting things happening with Close To My Heart that were announced at convention a few weeks ago. I’m pumped! One of the biggest things CTMH announced is that all retired consultants can rejoin during the month of August ONLY, with a special new consultant Essentials kit for only $49 beginning August 1. Since you are a former consultant you already have the basics, so this kit has new Idea Books and some new product and samples. Now you are ready to show your friends & family what’s new with CTMH!Weclome Back FB  Collage

We also have a NEW beautifully packaged $129 Kit, with new Idea Books and product all ready for your first gathering/class! If this sounds appealing to you and you want more information about this opportunity and new consultant kits, let me know! Call, text, email or facebook!

* Our Annual Idea Book (September 2015-August 2016) was released at convention. CTMH made some improvements to the book, and the biggest is what I got the most excited about! All the holiday stuff is out of the book as well as the Stamp of the Month (SOM). This makes the book more appealing all year long! So how do we get holiday product you ask? CTMH will now have 3″Seasonal Expressions” (Supplement) and each Seasonal Expressions will have a 4 month life span. This means for the entire life of the annual book you will always have an Expressions Supplement too! I couldn’t be happier! Of course the first issue will cover the fall holidays, beginning Sept. 1 for Customers, Aug. 1 for consultants! The SOMs will be included in the Expressions too.

AI HE cover pic* We have a new Cricut Collection! The name is Artistry and includes 3 exclusive stamp sets and cardstock along with the cartridge. This is something consultants can already order! I can’t wait to get my hands on mine and play!

Artistry 1* Our Enchantment color pallet has been updated! Nine colors were retired and replaced by new colors. The 3 colors that survived the cut are Goldrush, Ruby, and NE Ivy. Pull out your book to see the colors leaving August 31. Some I am so sad to see go, but most have been around since I joined 24 years ago! Check the retired list and “while supplies last” on my site.

* New training videos in the works, more resources to make our “job” easier, and we still have the FREE websites!

* CTMH provides credit card processing (bearing the cost of the transactions and fees) so we keep our full commission!

* More paper packs, updated complements, lots of embellishments, new tools, and more – all great things to be excited about! The artwork in the book is FABULOUS!

* More beautiful project artwork with instructions to share with customers or create for yourself! (Cards and/or scrapbook pages). Makes doing a class super simple.

* Brand new Idea Books available now,  August 1, 2015, to Consultants, and Sept 1 on my website (kathy.ctmh.com) for customers. Or contact me for your very own complimentary copy.

If you have questions, want to talk, or need more information, give me a holler! I would love the opportunity to work with you again and find out how we can make it a fun, successful, and rewarding endeavor for you.

I have an active Team Facebook group exclusively for my entire team to give you a place of connection, help, challenges and support! And if joining ctmh and my ctmh team again is not right for you at this time, please follow my Facebook Page (like it and click get notifications), Or visit my website www.lindacreates.com, and sign up for my blog (I post daily art). Both sites will keep you informed of all things CTMH.

Still thinking about it?  Check out about me and why I joined and some reasons for consideration.  When you join my team, I offer separate incentives to encourage and motivate you on your journey whether you are a consultant for the discount on your own supplies or choosing to build a small or large business (these incentives are not offered by CTMH or other consultants – only through me).

Thanks for stopping by!
