There's only a five days left of the August Welcome Back Campaign!!!

This offer ends on August 31st.  Don't delay much longer or you just might miss it.

Calling all former Close To My Heart Consultants!!!

We will be extending a special offer to our former Consultants in August, inviting them to come back to the Close To My Heart family. On August 1, we will send an email to all former Consultants who were active any time between now and January 1, 2013 with an offer to enroll as Consultants again. Ultimately, any former Consultant who is eligible for re-sign can participate in the campaign whether or not they receive our email. If they sign up between August 1 and August 31, former Consultants will be given the choice between the regular New Consultant Kit and an Essentials New Consultant Kit, which they can order at the discounted price of $49 USD/$58 CAD. The Essentials New Consultant Kit will include the Zoe Workshops on the Go Scrapbooking Kit as well as order forms, idea book postcards, Annual Inspirations idea books, Holiday Expressions idea books, Paper Fundamentals sampler, B&T Duos® sampler, and the Petite Perks incentive stamp set. More details about the campaign will be included in a campaign FAQ that will be posted in Online Office on August 1.

In order to take advantage of this offer, former Consultants should be sure to use the email address that was associated with their former Consultant account—this is the same email address that the offer will be sent to. We encourage you to reach out to friends and former Team members to let them know about this unique opportunity and invite them to come back to Close To My Heart. It’s an exciting time to be a Consultant, and we look forward to welcoming back many of our former Consultants!

Don't miss out on this deal, you know how much fun it is.  What are you waiting for?  

I would love for you to sign back up with me.

Crop 4 Vets update.

I am so excited, today Art Impressions sent me an email stating they would like to donate a few items to our Crop 4 Vets.  This event is really starting to take shape.  Thank you Art Impressions.  Here is a link to their website.  Make sure to take a look at their stamps.  Here are a couple I like.

and you know I love my chickens. 

I can't wait to see what the send us.  

We have a lot planned for the Crop 4 Vets.  You don't have to be a Scrapbooker to join us for the Crop. Do you crochet? Do you knit? Do you sew? Paper craft? Do you make your own jewelry? Bring a project and work on it at the Crop.  Meet some new friends while you are there.  We have lots planned for the Crop 4 Vets. We have a Masseuse, Jeremy will be offering 15 min massages and will have his Damsel in Defense products. Tina Jaspers-Keeler will be joining us for the crop but will also have her Thirty One Bags there. I will be offering a 2 page layout class. Nancilee Baker will be there with Stampin' Up offering a card class. We will have a Photo booth and hopefully a nice silent auction as well.  All the proceeds will go to help our local Military members and their families in need and to help our local veterans as well.

If you are interested in joining us, you can click on this link or you can email me or call me 503-708-6889.

Hope to see you there.
