A couple of questions you might have that I can answer for you about discount/commission and what are minimums?  You can earn extra money by receiving 22% and up to 35% commission on your sales and personal purchases.  You can also receive SPC (Select Product Credit) after selling $150/month.  If you sell over $1000/month you can earn additional override commission.

The minimums are not very hard to meet either with these wonderful products!  If you want to join as a hobbyist, that's when you join just to get the discount on the products you love, or as to build a business, that choice is yours.  The calendar quarterly minimum is $300.  If for some reason you are not able to meet that $300/quarter, than you will drop to a Junior Consultant and will receive a 10% discount.  The minimums you must meet while a Junior Consultant are only $100/quarter.  If you have dropped to Junior Consultant but get your sales back up to the $300/quarter, then you become an active Consultant with the 22% discount again.  

To make this deal even better, since you are signing up in the middle of a quarter, you do not have to meet your $300 minimum until the end of September!


Email me with any additional questions you might have or go here on my website to get signed up and join my team today before this great offer is done!!  You won't be sorry that you did!  Close to my Heart is such an amazing company with amazing products!

Monogram Note Cards

This past week our PTA held Teacher's Appreciation Week.  I am on the board as the Membership VP and it so nice to be able to honor our teachers & staff!  PTA hosted a luncheon at all 3 elementary schools.  We collected prizes from local businesses which were given out as door prizes while they ate their lunch.  We also had snacks for the staff in their break room all week.   I made personalized note cards for my sons teachers.  This was a personal "Thank You" from our family to Mrs. Scott & Ms. Hari.  Below is a picture of the note cards I made.  This only shows one set, because I forgot to snap pictures of Mrs. Scott's cards before I delivered them to her, oops!



Card were made using a rainbow of cardstock, "H" Monogram Stamp Set and Perfect Fit Frames 1 & 2 Stamp Sets.  I used Art Philosophy & Artiste Cricut Cartridge for the Perfect Fit Frames & the scallop and plain circle for the monograms.  

The magazine rack holder was made using the Artiste cartridge in our school colors purple & gold & retired Thoughtful Tidings February SOTM stamp set.

Until my next post, happy crafting!

Creatively Cricut Video

You have to watch this latest Corporate video featuring Kristine.  She starts out showing some of her favorite stamp sets that coordinate with the newest Artiste cartridge.  The Frame Flair set is one that I used on my last class layout, and it is so wonderful and versatile with four beautiful frames.  I have also used the Perfect Fit Frames set, definitely one of my favorites!  I'll be sharing one of my latest creations using that set very soon.  But for now, sit back and enjoy this video!  It is a little long, but so worth the time spent watching it!



Until my next post, happy crafting!

Chantilly - Easter Layout

My class layout for this month was made using Chantilly papers with an Easter or Spring theme.  I made my first layout using the paisley floral side of the Chantilly papers with a Cotton Candy cardstock mat of my niece hunting eggs at our house back in 2002.


The next layout I made planning on putting pictures of my boys hunting eggs this Easter.  I flipped the scalloped circle over to the green side and used Twilight cardstock for my mat.


Supplies used all CTMH unless noted.
Chantilly paper pack
Chantilly Textiles
Artiste & Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridges
Frame Flair, Easter Wishes & Keyboard Uppercase Alphabet Stamp Sets
Cotton Candy, Twilight, Buttercup & White Daisy cardstock.

Until my next post, happy crafting & happy Monday!




Claire - Fancy Fold Flip Flap Card

I saw this Fancy Fold Flip Flap type of card posted on fellow Consultant, Jen Patrick's Roxybonds blog and thought it was so cute.  I knew I had to make one, so I figured out the measurements and created it using Claire papers.






Supplies used all CTMH unless noted.
Claire paper pack
Card Chatter - Birthday & 4 My Friend Stamp Set
Outdoor Denim, Hollyhock & White Daisy Cardstock
Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon
Outdoor Denim & Hollyhock Ink
