CTMH Anniversary & Contest

Posted on in Uncategorized Leave a comment
I received a congratulatory email today for celebrating my 5th anniversary with Close To My Heart!  Like most consultants, I started selling CTMH because I love the products and wanted more.  After a couple years as a customer, I realized the discount of being a consultant was too good to pass up.  Five years later…I could probably scrapbook the rest of my life without buying anything other than adhesive…LOL!
What drives me now is the joy of teaching scrapbooking, stamping, and Studio J techniques to people who really want to learn from me.  As a public school teacher, I’m constantly bombarded with negativity, so the positive response I’ve received as a CTMH consultant is such a blessing.  I love inspiring other memory keepers and I never want to stop.  
Yet, what I love most about being a consultant are corporate sponsored events.  I’ve met so many wonderful people and learned so much about the art of memory keeping at these events:
9/2007      Regional Celebration; Seattle, WA
7/2008       Convention; Orlando, FL
1/2009       Album Retreat; Salt Lake City, UT
7/2009       Leadership Conference; Long Beach, CA
11/2009     Regional Celebration; Portland, OR
7/2010       Convention; Washington, DC
11/2010     Leadershare; Seattle, WA
3/2011       Leadershare; Las Vegas, NV
5/2011       Studio J Boot Camp; Salt Lake City, UT
                  Taught a layout during Boot Camp!
9/2011       Regional Celebration; Vancouver, BC
7/2012       Convention; Dallas, TX
                  Have been invited to teach at Extravaganza!
Clearly, I love going to these events, and now I have a chance to bring a corporate sponsored workshop to you!  CTMH recently announced a contest for convention goers.  If we sell 100 Stamps of the Month and/or Dotty for You kits during the qualifying period (4/17-5/31), our names will be entered into a drawing for a FREE 20 person workshop provided and taught by a CTMH VP!  
Now, I’m not going to lie, this is a tough challenge, but knowing that 20 of my friends and downline could experience this workshop makes me want to work extra hard to make it happen.  Here are some ways that you can help:
1)  Purchase the May SOTM on my website (makes a great gift if you aren’t a stamper).
2)  Purchase a Dotty for You kit for $5 with every purchase of $35 from the current Idea Book (again, this is a super generous gift for the papercrafter in your life.  I can also help you pick out coordinating products for the Dotty kit).
3)  Host a party to get the word out to all your friends.  In addition to helping me, you will be helping yourself earn FREE hostess rewards!
4)  Forward the link to my newsletter, Facebook, or Twitter accounts to all your friends and remind them what an awesome gift they could purchase for the memory keepers in their lives.  
So, what will you get…other than my undying gratitude?
1)  All participants will receive a thank you gift from me.
2)  If I win the workshop, the following spots are reserved for the people who help the most.
  • 1 spot for the person who purchases the most product.
  • 1 spot for the person who helps me sell the most SOTM and/or Dotty kits.
  • 3 spots to my downline who sell the most during the qualifying period.
  • 3 spots drawn from party hostesses (must be a qualifying party in person or online)–Hostesses who sell 10 or more at their gathering will receive 5 entries into the drawing!
  • 12 spots drawn from customers who purchased the SOTM or Dotty kit (you receive one entry for every purchase; remaining tickets from the hostess drawings will be added to this drawing; you may only win one spot in the workshop).
Okay, I know this is a long shot, but it doesn’t hurt to try.  Someone has to win, right?!

A Big Thank You & Celebration

Posted on in Cricut Leave a comment

I haven’t posted for a couple weeks, but now I’m back with a huge thank you to all of you who voted for my Super Stars layout.  I won 2nd place in Close To My Heart’s Studio J Free-for-All contest!  You know what that means?  I’m passing my winnings on to you!  Visit my blog and Facebook page often as  you never know when I may have a 5-pack or two to give away.

Although I was disappointed in missing convention this year, there is so much to celebrate.  I had an amazing time in Hawaii and am counting down the days until the new kits are released on Studio J so that I can scrapbook my photos.  While at convention, CTMH consultants were able to celebrate the announcement that CTMH now has a Cricut cartridge!  Well, as I had not spent all that extra money at convention, I figured this was the perfect time for me to get a Cricut, too!  So, all’s well that ends well.  Here is a little video to whet your appetite.  If you would like more information about our Cricut package, please free to contact me.

    Close To My Heart amazes me!  First they created Studio J, a FREE online scrapbooking studio.  Then they populated the studio with their papers, patterns, and embellishments for FREE.  When I didn’t think it could get any better, they came up with the June Free-for-All promotion.  Sign up for a FREE Studio J account, create a layout, add it to your cart, order the FREE JPG image, and download the files to your computer…it’s that easy!
    Throughout the month, I’ll give you little tips about what you can do with the two high resolution images that come in your JPG zip file, so check back here often.  You’ll also receive a low-resolution photo perfect for emailing or posting on the Internet.
    Speaking of posting, I’m running a contest this month, and the prize is a FREE Studio J 5-pack!  This prize is valued at $55 and will allow you to order 5 Studio J layouts and includes FREE shipping and page protectors.  Check back tomorrow and I’ll share the details of how you can win this amazing prize.  For now, log on to Studio J and start creating your layout!
