Very Cheery "Cherry Jubilee"

What a blast it was at my "Cherry Jubilee" celebrating the launch of my Close To My Heart scrapbooking consulting business. There were 28 fabulous ladies who stopped by for delicious Chocolate Cherry Martinis (a hit!) and desserts (High Hill Orchards Cherry Crunch was big winner!).

Not only did I have super fun guests but everyone was so enthusiastic for my new venture. A success!!

I'm excited to get my two new Club groups that signed up going starting this May, plan my first three home gatherings sign ups, and follow up on my many Kids Camp sign ups for this summer. I also can't wait to work on a CTMH binder "birthday" present for one special new client!

What a fun new business! Hosting monthly Girls Night Outs but it's work. Awesome!

Scrapi Traci Workshop Debut

It's been so much fun putting together a workshop in my house and making gorgeous CTMH displays to decorate the room.  I can't wait to hold my first workshop!  My special touches will include Scrapi Traci music playlists to get in the scrapin' groove and refreshment breaks to enjoy some delicious treats!  It's all about having fun while getting a ton of scrapbooking or cardmaking done!

The Excitement Just May Kill Me

I went to a crop last night with two Close To My Heart boxes that had just arrived on my doorstep.  Still taped up, I set them on my assigned cropping station in anticipation.  Maybe for you it's new clothes or jewelry or house stuff but for me, it's scrapbooking STUFF.  I can't even tell you how ridiculously fun it was opening these boxes filled with CTMH loot. 

I could hardly get scrappin' but instead just wanted to look at all my new stuff.  I still can't believe that for signing up as a CTMH consultant, I got 12 stamp sets, 5 blocks, 9 ink pads, three new Summer 2010 paper collections, 10 embellishments, 5 tools, Imagine & Wishes Program books and 5 additional project bases.  UNBELIEVABLE!  I totally see why there are so many people siging up to be consultants only for access to this great product deal. It's so worth it! But I can't wait to make some incredible display ideas for my customers.  Gotta get scrapin' . . .

Summer 2010 Idea Books Have Arrived

The Summer 2010 Close To My Heart Idea Book has arrived.  It's FABULOUS!!  It's hard to get any crafting done when all I want to do is keep looking through these awesome books.  I LOVE the new products.  Let me know if you want a copy for a low minimum order of $30. I can place orders from the catalog on May 1st!  Be the first to get your hands on these fun new papers, stamps and embellishments.

CTMH Rocks

One of my first missions in my CTMH journey . . . card making, I've scrapbooked for 12 years but never ventured into card making.  I have really missed out . . .

Check out my fun Scrapi Original cards using CTMH's "You Rock" collection on my blog slideshow.

After making four layouts form the "You Rock" Workshop On The Go, I made 15 cards from the paper and embellishments left from the kit. Best of all, I still have so much paper I could make more scrapbook layouts or more cards. What a great value!!

Scrapi Traci Embarks on CTMH Consultant Journey

It's official. I have embarked on a fun new journey becoming a Close To My Heart Consultant! I can't wait to get my new business booming.

It possibly might be more fun than Christmas when I receive all the awesome CTMH goodies this Friday from signing up.  In addition to the starter kit, I was also able to get some incredible scrapbooking and cardmaking bonus kits. What a great deal! I can't wait to dig in and start creating fabulous scrapbook layouts and inspiring cards. Stay tuned . . .artwork to come soon.

Close To My Heart Makes This Scrapper Super Excited

I first saw Close To My Heart products at a Craft Fair booth in December with CTMH Director Melissa Laverty.  Right away I was so drawn to the beautiful papers and embellishments that I signed up to receive her CTMH e-newsletter.

In January I attended our PTO's first Annual Crop and participated in a "Make and Take" scrapbook layout session featuring "Topstitch".  I so loved the materials that I joined a "Workshop On the Go" Club that day with some fun ladies from the  "make and take" session.

After two club meetings, I was so impressed with the "Workshops On The Go" and the incredible quality of the materials, that I just knew becoming a CTMH consultant was the perfect next step for me!

Scrapi Traci Tackles CTMH Training

I am having a blast taking CTMH's Training Academy Courses. Currently I'm working on my bachelor's degree. 

I'm a maniac - determined to learn it all. My new motto is "Learn All You Can To Teach The CTMH Way". . .
