Card Making Workshop!

Now that I'm starting to sell Close To My Heart stuff, I have begun to host events at my home that are "make and take". It is where you come over and spend a few hours making a project with other ladies, and you actually get to take your finished product home with you and have something to show for it! You pay for your paper supplies only, since I have all the tools and inks and what not.

Next Tuesday evening, 3 November, I will be hosting a Card Making Workshop from 7-9 PM. There are 8 different kinds of cards you can make. The cost is $5 for 2 cards, $10 for 4 cards (which includes the paper, cards, envelopes, brads, ribbon, and adhesive). I wouldn't suggest making all 8 because you will be here forever! Please RSVP at and let me know if you want to make 2 or 4. Space is limited so please make sure to RSVP!

Below are a few close ups of these adorable cards! I hope to see you at the workshop where we can spend time stamping and chatting!

Another Layout

I used the Twitterpated Level 1 Kit to complete these 6 pages. We took this trip last November to the Eastern Coast of Korea. The fall colors were beautiful!

Christmas Layouts

Yes, these are almost a year old! Remember how I said my goal is to get caught up on scrapbooking? I'm obviously not there yet, haha! I completed 6 Christmas pages last night! I used a level 1 Evensong paper pack from CTMH, so these 6 pages only cost me $9.95!

Scrapbooking Thailand

Here are a few pictures of a recent layout I completed (in one evening!). I used the Moon Doggie Level 1 Kit, and completed 6 pages (3 layouts) using the paper and stickers in about 2-3 hours! These pictures are from the end of our Thailand trip...lots of Elephants! I love how easy Level 1 kits make it to complete a scrapbook page! Very simple, and cheap! The kit was $ that totals less than $2 per completed page!

Shop on my Website!!!

I bit the bullet and paid the $155 for a year long subscription to sell CTMH stuff online. So you know what that means! I need you to start making purchases :-)

Being the accountant I am, here is my break-even analysis: I must sell $815 in retail product to cover this fee. My commission is 22% minus the 3% online charge for accepting customer credit cards. Ouch. That's a lot of money. If you are reading this, mosey on over to my NEW website and make a purchase, please! Help me sell $815! :-) Thanks~!

Getting Serious About Scrapbooking

Now that I am a stay-at-home-mom and have decided to sell Close To My Heart Scrapbooking stuff, I need to get serious about actually selling it to other people besides just myself. I'm not sure how good of a salesperson I will be because I don't want my new friends thinking I just want to sell them something. You know? I just want to invite people over to scrap and have fun, NOT to buy something. But, if they like the products I use...then they can just buy it if they want.

My grand plan, for today at least, is to pick a day/night of the week that I can dedicate to scrapbooking. Then, tell my friends and neighbors that if they want to come too, Come on over! That way we can get to know each other better and get some work done on our scrapbooks.

I'll let you know how it goes!
