Over $450 for $99!!!!
This is what Karen Pedersen had to say about the new CTMH deal!  "When I received notice this week of the special that Close To My Heart is running for March, my mouth dropped open so wide it hit the floor.  When that happened all the drool that had been accumulating spilled out, but I didn't even notice because I was trying to hard to get my mouth shut."  Wow...this must have been happening all over the country because I sure found a lot of drool around here too!  (The dogs get blamed for a lot of things?! Ha!)

I wanted to get your attention about this AWESOMELY AMAZING special so you could begin by knowing what an AWESOMELY AMAZING (oh yeah, I used that "AWESOME" word more than once. But that's what it is....AWESOMELY AMAZING) deal it is.  

Drum roll please....
If you sign up to be a Close To My Heart Consultant in March, you get the $99 Art Philosophy Close To My Heart/Cricut Collection FREE (Check out the photo at the top of this post. All of these projects were created with the collection. Yum.)!  No kidding!

This collection includes:
  • 1-Cartridge (over 700 images: font, shapes and 3-D items. A cartridge this quality would normally retail for about $60)
  • 3 - My Acrylix D-size Stamp Sets (all of which coordinate with the shapes on the cartrdige!  This is about a $55 value.)
  • 3 - 9" x 12" Dimensional Elements (3 sheets of different shapes that all coordinate with the shapes on the cartridge!  This is over a $15 value.)
No kidding!  That's over $130 in value for only a $99 retail price, and even BETTER, it can be yours in March FREE when you sign up to be a CTMH Consultant like me.  FYI: If you already have the Art Philosophy Collection, no worries. You'll get $100 in product credit instead!  This just keeps getting better and better.

"So," you're asking, "How do I do that?"

Easy, Peasy, Lemon Squeasy:
  1. Go to my website and click on "Your Opportunities" and go from there.
  2. You will need to purchase the basic "New Consultant" kit for $99 (which is about a $300 value).  The website will walk you through this step-by-step
  3. After you sign up, I'll contact you and help you get going.
Here is a photo of what is included in the New Consultant Kit:

There are also some add-on kits you can choose to purchase to help you get started if you wish, but they are not required.  Yep, that's the truth.For only $99 you can become a Close To My Heart Consultant in March and get over $450 in product back. WOWZA! It makes  me want to sign up all over again.

Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE what I do?

Have a great day!  I hope to see you join my team in March!

A Brand New Close To My Heart Idea Book and February Specials!!!!!

Happy February!  I love so many things about this month:  Valentine's Day, seven family and friends birthday's, the discovery of a GREAT doctor and the implant of a trial spinal pain for my birthday!  Along with those already fun things to be excited about in February, Close To My Heart has added MANY things to the list. I am trying to decide where in the world to begin!  I guess I'll start with a list. That always helps me organize my thoughts. Maybe it will help you keep track of the many goodies in store for you this month with Close To My Heart as well....  
2.  Five for FREE in February
3.  February Stamp of the Month
4.  Help Make a Miracle
5.  Brand New Consultant Kit


Every 6 months (in February and August) a brand new Idea Book comes out with Close To My Heart full of so many wonderful things, including (but not limited to!) 8 new scrapbooking kits, dozens and dozens of new stamp sets, a plethora of pretty embellishments and 6 new Stamps of the Month.  YAY!  Here it is.  You can view it page-by-wonderful-page by clicking here or on the icon of the new Idea Book.   Then, when you've made your list, you can make your purchases on my website. But wait!  Keep reading. I think you'll want to know about a few more of the wonderful specials this month before you do.

2.  Five for FREE in February:

You can double your layouts with our Five for Free promotion! For each Studio J® 5-pack you purchase this February, you’ll get one free 5-pack. That means you get 10 layouts for just $55—that’s just $2.75 per page, with free shipping. Even if you’re already taking advantage of Studio J’s incredibly low members-only pricing, you’ll save even more when you purchase 5-packs through this special February deal. To order your 5-pack and to get one free, head to my website, click on "Shop Online" then add item #SJ5P. You can also give these as gifts and they NEVER expire!!!!  If you would like to receive hostess rewards, you can contact me and order three 5-packs and get $25 in Close To My Heart products FREE! To build your layouts, head to my website, click on "Studio J" and go from there.
Also, beginning February 1, you can visit for a set of instructions for creating five beautifully crafted layouts in Studio J. These instructions are intended to help you become familiar with Studio J and its features.

3.  February Stamp of the Month: 

As always, Close To My Heart has designed a beautiful stamp set that is available during this month only. The February set is called "Thoughtful Tidings" and is full of wonderful sentiments, many of which coordinate with shapes on our CTMH/Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.  You can see a few fun boxes and 3D items below that the talented Close To My Heart Art Department made.  If you spend $50, it's yours for only $5 (a $17.95 value). Or, you can purchase it for $17.95. Either way, it's only available during the month of February.  You can order it through me or through my website. Once your spend $50, you will be prompted to add it, or if you are purchasing it for the $17.95 price, enter item #S1202.

4.  Help Make a Miracle:

Let’s make a miracle by raising funds for Operation Smile®! The Close To My Heart Consultant who raises the most in donations between January 1 and March 31 will have the opportunity to go on an Operation Smile international medical mission where they will work as part of the non-medical staff, alongside doctors and nurses, providing care for children, screening applicants, teaching parents, and assisting in every way in this important endeavor.  You can donate by contacting me or by donating on my website when ordering (you'll be prompted to add your donation before the end of your order).

5.  Brand New Consultant Kit:
Along with a new Idea Book comes a new Consultant Kit. If you have or are thinking about becoming a Close To My Heart Consultant, this is a great time to do it with a brand new kit!  Our base kit is only $99 (plus shipping and tax) and then there are three add-on kits to choose from at $40 each as well.  My suggestion:  If I were just signing up, I would purchase the basic kit, plus "Choose Me Three" (this includes a three-month Studio J Membership and 5 free two-page layouts.  This Add-On kit alone is worth over $62.50.  I'll even show you the kit contents below. Before I do, let me just tell you how easy it is to sign up:
  • Go to my website
  • Click on "Your Opportunites"
  • Scroll down that page to the bottom until you see the link that says "To Become a Consultant, click here".  Of course, click there.
