Close To My Heart Offers More Bang for your Buck!

Have you seen our new Flower Market Cricut cartridge yet? 

It’s AWESOME! And so much more than flowers.

I bet you don’t know what a great deal it is, though, and I’m about to tell you how to stretch your dollar even farther! 

I’m going to walk you through a little simple math….

First you need to know that this cartridge, filled with SEVEN HUNDRED images, comes with three D size stamp sets worth $17.95 each, and a pack of Adventure card stock worth $14.50. That means you are paying only $30.65 for All.Those.Images! (If you get the digital version you are only paying $10.65!)  

Seriously. $30.65.

And we can stretch your dollar even more.  

Yuletide Joy October SOTM
First we’ll add the Stamp of the Month for even more savings, because you will be receiving this $17.95 set for only $5.00.  Woot!

Card Stock Combo Packs
Then lets add all the card stock combo packs of colors at $14.50 each, Whimsy, Enchantment and Basics, giving you an assortment of card stock that will coordinate with any project you are working on. 
Journaling Pen
And because we are scrappers we always need a good journaling pen so lets add that for $3.25.

Don’t stop reading now – the best is yet to come!

We have just created an order to get that cartridge that you may have thought was pricey, but you are getting much more. You now have a selection of great crafting items that you will definitely use. These are things that are not going to wither away in the back of your craft closet.

And you have just qualified for HOSTESS REWARDS.*  With this order you are now eligible to select and additional $25 of Close To My Heart products for Free! Who doesn't love Free?

*The digital cartridge will require a little more to get to the $150 goal. I suggest adding one of our Fundamental paper packages.

Here are some important things to know. 
  1. This order must be set up by me prior to you placing it. Contact me at
  2. You can choose whatever you want to get your order to $150 to qualify for the hostess rewards. This post is just a suggestion.  
  3. The Hostess Rewards only start at this point, you can earn much, much more! 
  4. You can invite your friends to place orders, too for even bigger rewards.
  5. Finally, there are some limitations on what you can get free, you can look at those here.

A Beautiful Calendar, A Beautiful Gift

A sister consultant in Canada created a beautiful calendar and coordinating layouts that took my breath away.  I wanted to make her calendar and with her permission, am also offering classes to you, my friends.

Here are the months of the calendar, with some changes that better suited me.

I'm so excited to hang this calendar on my wall and track my day to day activities throughout the coming year.  Jennifer also designed two scrap book pages to coordinate with each month. Again, I've added my own twist and an extra page so when you include the calendar page, you will have two complete two page layouts for every month of the year.  What an awesome scrapbook you will have at the end of the year! 

Here is January.

By adding one of the layout pages when you hang the calendar you can include the photos that make you happy. You will enjoy seeing your calendar every day of the year!

At the end of the month your page goes into your album along with the two other pages you've made.

And include the calendar month itself as a record of the month and your journaling. This will become an amazing album to look back on.

We are starting by completing the calendar.  On October 22nd at 9:00am we'll be putting the calendar together in one session. And then we'll meet monthly to complete the layouts for each month. If you would like to participate in this class please contact me at There is no requirement to sign up for all the classes. You may do just the calendar or just the layouts if you prefer.   If you are not in the Northern Kentucky area but would like to make the calendar and/or the layouts as they become available, I will provide kits.  Shipping will be charged in addition to the class price.
