Extra thoughts to consider:

  • Debt Free. Close to My Heart is a debt-free company with a sound business plan.  They have been in business for 36 years.  CTMH is in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand!
  • Industry Leader. Close to My Heart is an industry leader in the crafting community.  They provide 3 Idea Books throughout the year so they stay abreast of the trends and changes!  As a consultant, you get new product 1 month before our customers do.
  • Diverse Product Line. Close to My Heart provides a diverse product line: acrlix stamps, papers, inks, cards, scrapbooking, and paper crafting for a wide audience appeal.
  • Preview Periods. You will be able to order new product one month before it comes out. This is truly the best! I can’t tell you how exciting it is to see that box delivered!!
  • The World Wide Stampettes (aka WWStampettes) is a long standing team in Close to My Heart. We have a Team group where we support, encourage, share, and help each other on a regular basis through Facebook.  We are part of two amazing Teams: Connected Hearts and the Dream Team.  Everyone is super supportive.  I enjoy each of my team members as each are unique and special whether they are supporting their crafting through the discount, being a Hobbiest, or a Business Builder.  If you are in my first downline, I have an exclusive FB group just for you for added incentives, giveaways, and fun.  All are welcome!!
  • Community.  We are part of a huge community of paper crafting paper crafting buddies, Connected Hearts and the Dream Team, that are willing to share ideas! I have made friendships which are beyond measure through Close To My Heart.  These two groups are my upline and their FB groups provide amazing support.
  • Commission.  Close To My Heart offers a generous commission along with monthly product rewards according to sales.  Your base commission is always 22% and you get this upfront (no waiting to be paid).  Based on your monthly sales you can earn over-rides up to 13% – allowing you to earn 35% on your base sales.  Build a team and the plan is even more generous!!
  • Close To My Heart offers loads of training and support.  This is available through an online academy, videos, MP3 listening library, Facebook groups, and events. You can find answers and support for business, creative, and personal development. It’s awesome! Training is updated all the time, allowing us to be on top of the industry.  I offer team events in my home.
  • Seasonal Launch Events and Yearly Conventions. Next year’s National Convention will be in Provo, Utah, in July and we’ll be celebrating 36+ years with CTMH!  I can’t wait!  The Launch Events are all around providing consultants from all areas the opportunity to participate in a training event for an evening at an affordable rates and you get to purchase the product packet used so it counts towards your minimums. There are Album Retreats to help keep us trained on the latest techniques and tools and Team Builder events for those focused on growing their team!
  • Opportunity to earn Incentive Trips! I have earned several trips now:  2004, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019.
  • Tax deductible crafting! Everything you buy to make samples is tax deductible.  Everything you make is a sample for your business.  Have another business?  I had an in-home family child care. I try to purchase as much of the craft materials for this business through CTMH.
  • Your Business Your Way.  And finally – the opportunity to have a home-based business where you are in control, running your business the way that you choose! I love this because it allows me to put things in the correct perspective: God, my family, then my business. This perspective has blessed me beyond measure.

Preferred Customer Program:

Starting in October 2018, Consultants have a new option to going inactive when they need to.  This program is called “Preferred Customer”.  When you don’t meet the $300/quarter minimum for any reason, you will become a Preferred Customer.  This means you’ll need to submit $100 in orders each quarter and your discount will be 10% instead of 22%.   Anytime you place $300 in orders in a quarter, you’ll go back up to the 22% discount and full consultant status!  I think this is a fantastic opportunity for hobbists and will help everyone out.

Do What You Love

Do What You Love

“Do what you love” is so very important, don’t you agree.  For the past 18 years, I’ve been a part of Close To My Heart (CTMH) because I love crafting and I want some of the best products for this.   We were relocating to Guam and I was honestly, in a panic about where I’d get my crafting supplies from!  I wanted to be sure I was able to get paper, stamps, and scrapbooks.   Getting them at a discount was just an added bonus for me.

From a simple decision to join CTMH (formally DOTS when I joined), I gained so much more than a discount.  I gained a community of amazingly talented artists to inspire me.  Friends, both as customers and consultants, who have walked 18 years of life with me.    We’ve laughed, cried, and created memories to last a lifetime.  You just can’t go wrong with this.   Look at this amazing kit you receive plus you’ll get a $50.00 CTMH Cash shopping spree to pick the supplies you want in your kit and a free Magical Paper Pack.  It’s really a “Consultant Kit Your Way”!   Did I mention that you get to pick your new supplies from the upcoming Holiday Expressions because consultants get a “preview” period where we can order ahead of everyone else!   The value is over $200.00 for an investment of $75.00 (over 60% discount).

 

Join our team, WWStampettes, this month and get the “Kit of the Month” for free!  You’ll only need to have the Stamp of the Month to create this cards.  The cards are cut and ready for you to stamp.  Embellishments are included!  =)  

 

Here’s a sample of one of the cards, a different take on the same sentiment:

 I can’t wait for it to be released!  So exciting!!  =)

Featured Paper of the Month: Gimme Some Sugar

Gimme Some Sugar is a whimsical collection in colors. More soft, like the early days of summer. I love the Kitchen Traditions part of the collection. Recipe cards are back. Using the Every Day Life Albums, you can create a keepsake for your family. Take those recipes that have been handed down for generations and put them in a keepsake for your child. It’s sure to be held close to their hearts.

I have several workshops available for Gimme Some Sugar when you purchase $25.00 or more in Gimme Some Sugar products from my website!! The one below features 6 layouts designed by Chris Robertson. I have a card one, one on Disney, mini album, and more. Something for everyone.

Check out my FB group, last album for all the choices. If you have older paper, you might be surprised what I have to help you create! I have some posted up on a website page.

Hello Friend and heads up

Hello Friend and heads up

Check out this super cute Hello Friend dragonfly card that will be on the Come and Play Card Buffet.  My goal is to clear out some of the stash of papers that I have hanging around.  Using the Cricut to create this dragonfly and retired Dream Big papers, here’s a great card for the Card Buffet!

The sentiment is stamped on a banner from the banner thin cut dies which are on sale for $10.49 or $27.90 in the banners bundle.

Liquid Glass is used over the wings to create the glossy effect.  Tried to keep it “in the lines” of the wings but some went out.  You can layer the Liquid Glass, letting it dry between coats.

Heads up for April’s Specials for New and Former Consultants:
