What Will You Be Crafting For Easter? Artiste Can Help!

Hello all....I hope those of you who are on Spring Break right now are enjoying your time off from the roller coaster we call life.  I know here in my household, things have been very laid back, quiet.  I think I like it!

I took some time this morning, while sipping my coffee, to create some fun little treat boxes as a little token of thanks to some wonderful ladies who have been an amazing support to me over the past couple of months.  These treat boxes can also be wonderful to add to your holiday table!  You can use them as gifts, favors, or even place markers.

I used my Close To My Heart  Artiste Cricut cartridge and was able to make several in just minutes! 

Remember, this cartridge can be yours FREE this month (a $99 value) if you join my team and become a consultant yourself ;).  Take a look here.

So here is the box.  I used White Daisy cardstock for the box itself.  I sponged the sides and corners with Cotton Candy ink.  At the bottom of each I added the border from the My Stickease pack for Lollydoodle.  The butterfly at the top is also cut using the Artiste cartridge.  Of course, I had to add a little "bling" so included some sparkle flourishes.  Finally, I added a little gift tag by attaching it with baker's twine. 




Happy Spring to All!!!

Today Is The Day! April Fools NOT!

Hello everyone and happy April!  I am so excited today, I can hardly stand it!  Why you ask?  Well because anyone who joins my team this month gets spoiled rotten!  Here's the scoop....

Over the weekend, an old friend approached me and asked "Danielle, how do you do it?  How do you work, take care of your 3 kids, and your house and still have time to be a consultant for CTMH?"  I didn't have to think at all when it just flew off my tongue..."I do it because it makes me happy." 

Yep, you see, my belief is this:  life is just way too short and precious at that.  I am not going to sit around being sad, feeling unfulfilled, and just plain tired and cranky.  When I am happy my family is happy..so you see, I NEED Close To My Heart. 

Think of it like this, you are like a bank account.  If you keep withdrawing (by doing dishes, making meals, caring for your ill children, fixing beds, scrubbing toilets, volunteering at school, teaching your children at home, working your 9-5 job....you get where I am going with this) and you don't make any deposits, you eventually end up with a zero (or even negative) balance.  That's it, nothing left to give.  So making a deposit into myself is heading off to do the next fun project or teaching others to do that scrapbook layout or meeting up with my team to put ideas together.......so you see, I NEED Close To My Heart because it makes me happy, makes me feel fulfilled!  Everyone deserves to be happy, everyone deserves to LOVE what they do for a living, everyone deserves to feel fulfilled.

So for all of those who like to scrapbook, makes cards, stamp, or create other projects...you have a place at Close To My Heart!  You are welcome here......

You can simply join to earn the benefits of being a consultant, such as a discount on product, opportunity to attend convention, etc.  Or, you may want to make a few extra dollars to help contribute towards your family's expenses.  I know that this has been a wonderful journey for me and have learned so much in addition to meeting some pretty awesome people along the way!  Whatever you decide you can bet I will help you every step of the way along with my wonderful teammates.  Not to mention, joining our team is affordable with start up cost being just $99 plus tax and shipping (for more than $300 worth of product).  Take a look here to see what the kit includes.  But WAIT!!!!!!  That's not all!

If you join my team from April 1st-30th you can not only get your starter kit, but you can also choose one of Close To My Heart's Cricut cartridge collections and it's yours...FREE!

That's right...another $99 worth of product making that a total of over $400 in product for $99.  And if that isn't enough, if you make $1200 in your first 90 days as a consultant (and you will have my help as I will be your mentor and guide), you will get back your sing-on fee of $99 in cash!  So signing up would be FREE!  Not to mention you will get a FREE gift from me valued at $35.  So come join me in this awesome adventure!  I cannot wait to help you start your incredible journey!

Balloon Ride Offers Whimsical Fun To My Wedding Album

For the month of April, the scrapbook workshop/classes hosted will feature "Balloon Ride", one of the paper packs featured in the CTMH Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book.  I decided to use this paper to help me scrap my wedding photos (it's only been 15 1/2 years...lol) and since my husband and I had a destination wedding, the paper was perfect!  Take a look at some of the layouts....


Here is a one page layout I did as an opening page.
The complements for this paper pack were dimensional elements which when combined with sparkle flourished, I think it adds depth to the pages nicely.  Not to mention a little sparkle.

If you would like your own Balloon Ride paper pack visit my website by clicking here.  As always feel free to contact me with any questions.
