Become your own boss!

Close to My Heart has created an incredible deal for those women that enjoy creating scrapbooks, greeting cards, and paper crafts. If you are like me that enjoy creating and would love to save money on quality supplies then you don't want to miss this incredible deal. But before I tell about the incredible deal let me tell you about my experience.

I began my business right after attending my first gathering. The consultant was not the sales person type in fact she didn't even present the business opportunity! I was a participant creating cards, took a look at the book and instantly knew this was the right fit for me. I make and sell greeting cards and scrapbook pages/albums why not use quality products with a discount... at least that was my logic. Today, I hold workshops and the ladies love the products. They want to buy everything in the book! They want to know how create so many of the projects found in the Idea Book. People at crops often ask me where did you get that beautiful paper:) My upline is fantastic! I am a part of a team that are not only creative but helpful too. The company offers so many FREE training opportunities online which means I can fit it to my schedule and at my pace. I can honestly say that I've learned so much from the company that I never thought possible.

Now women with all types of crafting abilities can be a part of such a wonderful company as an Independent Consultant. That means that you are your own boss! I am here to help you with any questions. You can work as independently as you like or can work together as a team.

Recent Workshop

When creating a workshop I tried to get feedback from crafters to find out what they would be interested in learning. People couldn't tell me what they wanted. So I created a workshop that was not for the newbie and the results were fantastic!

In creating this design I thought of earth, air, sun, and water. Each page was created using the Dotty for You paper packet.

This is Sara and she is proudly showcasing her work. This is the first side we worked on. She added a cloud and it looks great!

The second side of this accordian album was all about the color ready products and the white core card stock feature. We applied ink to butterflies and ribbon  by using a sponge. The participants learned how versatile Close to My Heart products are and the great feature of the white core cardstock. They balled up cardstock and sanded it down. The white core was an added texture and feature to the page.

Lynne is Sara's mother and is also an advid crafter. Check out how different and wonderful Lynne's album looks.

Regardless of age or experience this is a wonderful scrapbooking project. Here's a few crafters at work.

I have two favorite features the first, 3D accents such as the hand stamped airplane and banner.

And last but not least is the tree. The tree was hand stamped, then the tree top was stamped again on a separate cardstock. Both was cut and then layered. The tire is a movable embellishment that can freely swing. 

I hope you can swing on by on August 18th at my Open House
