Join My Team in October!

How many people can say they started a successful, lucrative business for $129 and with that $129 ended up with brand new products that value over $445?  Not very many, I’d venture to say!  YOU have the ability to be someone who CAN say that.  And you can get your kit for FREE! We have a Straight to the Top program available where you can get your $129 kit fee returned back to you if you follow the program during your first 3 months with Close To My Heart. To sign up as a Close To My Heart Consultant on my team, just click here.

I’m letting you know that the time has come…

  • If you are making scrapbooks for big life events for people as gifts, check to see where you are in the process.  Maybe its time to add some PML pages to help it go faster/smoother.  But pull out your calendars and BE REALISTIC!

Secret Clubhouse

no boys

I am setting up a SECRET CLUBHOUSE this year.  Remember back to when you were a kid and you and your friends not only had that “secret” club that said NO BOYS ALLOWED but you had super fun handshakes and just plain ole silly fun?  Well our SECRET CLUBHOUSE will hopefully bring back some of that fun in a new way:

 ALL members will receive:
1) FREE Annual Inspiration Books and Seasonal Inspiration Books before other customers!!
*The new Annual Inspiration Book is set to open to customers on September 1st.  You will get yours a FULL month early.  (Rumor has it this new book has a new CRICUT cartridge!!)

2) A FREE mini stamp set just for joining!!

3) A FREE Stamp of the Month of your choice!!

4) Advance notice of the following month’s Corporate Campaign.

5) Contests, giveaways & promotions for club members ONLY!!

6) Play Groups!  As a member, you get to learn new techniques in my Play Groups that you can participate in long-distance.   Each month we use one of Close To My Heart’s ’to die for’ paper packs as well as other stamps and accessories to create three 2-page 12″ x 12″ layouts. You’ll love it!

You are required to purchase the Basic Kit, but are welcome to upgrade to the Better or Best Kits, or just to pick and choose things from them to add to your Basic Kit. Basic Kits are approximately $30-$35 (before shipping and tax). You purchase the month before for the following month and then your kits are ready and waiting for you!

For instance, you would buy your August kit in July.  Also, if you would like your packet cut by me, that’s an additional $5, stamping is also an additional $5.

You are always welcome to purchase additional items from the Idea Book, but are not obligated to in any way.  Also, no Home Gathering or meeting is required for this club…just send me your order via e-mail by the 12th of each month!!  Outside orders from friends, family, co-workers, etc. will help you earn more goodies so they are definitely encouraged!!  If you are interested in having an actual Home Gathering I would love to work with you and your friends to make cards, layouts, etc.

How exactly does this work?
*All orders should be sent to me via e-mail by the 12th of each month, paid by the 15th!! I put in your order individually, shipping directly to you!
*Orders are processed and shipped straight to YOU as soon as you pay for your order.

*Remember as this is our Secret Clubhouse these orders come directly from me rather than ordering through my website so that I can get you the best deals and add in fun little goodies to your orders 😉

Do you know someone who would love to be a part of our club?  If they sign-up you get a $10 shopping trip! WooHoo!!!
