Organize your Thin Cuts (dies)

Organize your Thin Cuts (dies)

I totally lifted this idea from one of my uplines, Karen Morris,  and I love it!   Don’t we all  *love* organization! And you have to *love* CTMH Thin Cuts! Having  your Thin Cuts collection organized in a binder where you can grab and use them is sure to make you happy.  T his are pictures of her albums and how she does it.

Most CTMH Thin Cuts are packaged on a 4×6″ magnetic sheets. Do you know how brilliant this is?  You have to buy the magnetic sheets for any other dies you have!   Karen simply trimmed less than 1/4″ off the long side of the storage sheet so it slides in easily to the Everyday Life ™ Memory Protectors.  How awesome is this??

Ready to organize your collection? Here’s what you’ll need:
Z3192, 4″x6″ Memory Protectors (pkg of 10), $6.95

Then select the album of your choice:
Z9996, Bashful Everyday Life Album, $14.95
Z9979, Stripes Everyday Life Album, $14.95

And top off your organizing with Z4127, Label Holders (set of 2), $4.95.

I can’t wait to order my album and protectors to get this done!  =)  Happiness!

Mess of a Desk Workspace Wonders

Mess of a Desk – Workspace Wonders


Does anyone have a desk that looks like this periodically?  Some of the time? Most of the time?  Always?  Sometimes I find “my space” is the “catch all space” where everything no one is sure of where it goes, puts it in my space.  About every two weeks I have dig myself out.   Can anyone else relate to this?

So I began to sort out things because my motto or theme for this year is “Just Do It”.  So instead of looking at it or shoving it somewhere else, I’m dealing with it.  So when this order came in and had some of my Workspace Wonders…what a sigh of relief.  Some direction.

I am so grateful for Workspace Wonder when they came out.  What a great, great idea and it helps so much to have spaces for the tools you use the most!  So I took the above and worked on getting into this:

Is it perfect?  Not yet.  Definitely doing it though.  Sorting out all that stuff so I can see and work.  Did you know that you can host a gathering and get a Workspace Wonder bundle 50% off?

What a fantastic deal!  Host your gathering – online/catalog show, Facebook show, or in-home gathering (your house or mine) and with a $250 gathering, you can get this as your 50% bundle!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope this inspires you to sort a pile or two in your workspace!

So many exciting opportunities this month with a new Cricut Cartridge, the wonderful organizers, and the ability to rejoin the CTMH for $49.00!  There is something for everyone in the month of August.

Deal of the Day, All April!!

Deal of the day is back and I’m so excited!!  It’s been a long time since we’ve seen the grab bags/boxes.  I just loved getting in the boxes when they came because you never knew what you were going to get and I was never disappointed!!  Fun, fun!  This is how it works:


Love a great deal? How about 30 days of great deals? During the month of April, you have the opportunity to score a deal every day with Close To My Heart! What deals are we talking about? Each day during April, while supplies last, we’ll feature a random grab bag filled with current and retired Close To My Heart products available for purchase at a major discount. To grab your bag, simply place any current, full-priced item in your online shopping cart through your Online Business Address and you will be eligible to purchase as many grab bags as you wish (while supplies last)! Grab bags will be featured at five different price points throughout the month. Some grab bags will contain product with more than DOUBLE the retail value of the price you pay! Grab bags will be available for 24 hours starting at 3 pm MDT each day and only while supplies last—so visit often and early! Remember that grab bag tiers will be featured on a random schedule throughout the month, so seize the opportunity to purchase from the grab bag tier you’re interested in when it becomes available because it might not come around again!

What’s included in the grab bags?  It’s a big surprise, but this much we will tell you: grab bags will feature a mix of current and retired product. Five grab bag tiers will be available at random times throughout the month, but not all grab bags within a given price point will contain the same product. The price tiers are as follows:

  • $35 USD/$55 CAD Grab Bags (On average, a $70 USD/$75 CAD value!)
  • $50 USD/$65 CAD Grab Bags (On average, a $90 USD/$92 CAD value!)
  • $75 USD/$85 CAD Grab Bags (On average, a $140 USD/$145 CAD value!)
  • $115 USD/$125 CAD Grab Bags (On average, a $240 USD/$250 CAD value!)
  • $150 USD/$160 CAD Grab Bags (On average, a $325 USD/$335 CAD value!)

When are grab bag’s available Every day, starting at 3:00pm MDT, a new grab bag will become available for as long as supplies last.  If they run out in two hours, they are gone until the next day at 3:00pm MDT.  Be sure to check back daily.  Add something regular price to your cart and you’ll see what bags come up.  You can decide to go through with the purchase  or how many grab bags you want, once you see this.  =)  So much fun!!

Seasonal Expressions 2 (aka SE@2) has been released!  I love, love the entire supplement!!  You can look at it online, download the PDF to your computer for viewing, order something and add it to your cart for FREE, or I can mail it to you.  If you need me to mail it, please email me with your address!!

The Amazing Rolling Tote!

The amazing rolling tote from CTMH  is huge!  I honestly don’t thing there is another scrapbooking tote as BIG as it is.   You should see how many different ways you can use our organizers with it.  Have you seen it?  It’s difficult to find a tote with all the space ours has.  You can put so much just in the main compartment using our small, medium, and large organizers.   There are 2 side pockets (large enough to put your 12″ cutter and more in them).  There is a front pocket where you can put your 12″x12″ papers and more..  They even made a matching shoulder bag to go with it!  The shoulder bag will hold a post-bound scrapbook in it or it can be your purse!  I love both of mine.  Check out this video to see the shoulder bag and rolling tote!

It’s so big we can put SG in it! The tote is 22″ tall.  She’ll be 7 in a month and wants her own one for playing hide and go seek!
sg in tote

Do you know anything about our organizers?   Here’s another great video to show you just have great your supplies will look in our organizers!! With three different sizes, you can stash just about anything in them. We’ve even discovered you can put our foam inserts, designed for the small organizers, in the lids of all the organizers (with double sided stick tape), essentially allowing you to get more bang for your dollar!

Our large organizer is super to hold our stamps and so much more!

The tote can accommodate 22″ of organizers. The height of the Large Organizer (Z1834) is 8″, the Medium Organizer (Z4139) is 5.5″ and the Small Organizer (Z4138) is 2.75″ (2 small = 1 medium in space). Here are some combinations you can use:

2 Large / 1 Medium
2 Large / 2 Small
1 Large / 2 Medium / 1 Small
1 Large / 1 Medium / 3 Small
4 Medium
3 Medium / 2 Small
2 Medium / 4 Small
1 Medium / 6 Small

Would you like to get your rolling tote for free?? When you join my team with CTMH in March, you will get the matching shoulder bag for free (while supplies last) and place $300.00 in orders in your first 40 days, you will get this amazing tote FREE (no matter what) with the “Rolling in the Rewards” campaign!!.
