Last Call for CTMH October Specials!

Christmas Tunes Stamp Set

It’s the final 2 days to take advantage of CTMH’s October Specials.  First, there is the October Stamp of the Month: Christmas Tunes.  You can get this stamp set for only $5 with a qualifying $50 order.  That’s a savings of $12.95!

Christmas Tunes Card

Here’s a cute card created with this set.  I received this card from Linda C.  I like how she incorporated embossing–both wet and dry!

Share a Smile Card Kit

Second, we have the awesome card kit in support of Operation Smile.  You can purchase the whole Share a Smile Card Kit or the items separately.  I highly recommend the Punny Pals Thin Cuts!  It’ll be sad to see them go in a few days.  It’s super awesome to not have to fussy cut out the darling critters from the Punny Pals Stamp Set!

Close To My Heart’s Art Studio

CTMH Office Tour Ticket

Last week while at CTMH’s Annual Convention, Consultants got the exciting opportunity to visit the CTMH Office for a tour.  Apparently, they recently just did a makeover to the office.  While I never saw the office before this revamp, I must say it looked spectacular!  I have a bunch of photos to share.

CTMH flag

Just look at the scenery from their building.  Simply breathtaking.

Heart Lawn

And then for a bit of cuteness and true creativity, look at how they spray painted hearts on the lawn outside the building.  Okay, now it’s time to go inside!

CTMH's Mission Statement

First off, when you enter the building, they have their mission statement on the wall.

CTMH's Office Wallpaper

You then notice the very striking wallpaper behind the staircase that leads upstairs.  It’s breathtaking in person!  I couldn’t resist getting a photo taken!

CTMH Cricut Heart Mobile

In the lobby, you’ll see another breathtaking item–a heart mobile.  If I remember correctly, there are 770 hearts cut from one of our Cricut Collections to create this masterpiece. Beautiful, right?!?

Wooden Art Display

As you’d expect, they had many masterpieces displayed throughout the office.  These two are my favorites.  I love the creative spin on displaying the artwork.  This wooden one with the clips screams a fairly simple DIY project, right?

Scrapbook Layout Art Wall

And how about this stunningly simple idea for displaying 12 x12 scrapbook layouts?  I loved it the instant I saw it!

I was surprised at how simple and clean the area of the Art Studio was.  Of course, I do realize that they probably did a major clean up knowing this tour of Consultant was going to be happening!

Art Studio quote

I especially loved the quote they had on the back wall of the Art Studio.

We found out that the artists are given one of each new product from an upcoming catalog to create artwork samples.  Can you imagine how awesome that would be?!

Jeanette's Office Sign

Once you step around the corner of the Art Studio, there is this cute sign leading you to Jeanette’s office.

Jeanette's Creative Space

Just outside Jeanette’s office is her creative station. Of course, I had to get a photo here, too (please excuse the knobs that look like little antennae from my head!)

You are Welcome Here Sign

Right next to the creative station is a door with another chalk masterpiece. It’s so true–everyone is welcome.  The CTMH Community is so awesome.  If you’ve ever thought about becoming a CTMH Consultant, you should!  I’d be happy to talk more with you about it and answer any questions you might have.  Plus, I just have to say, July is a GREAT time to become a CTMH Consultant.  You can get an additional 12 pack of stamp sets (as part of our Stampaganza promotion) which are valued at over $215!  Wow, huh?

CTMH Tour Guide

So last, but not least, I need to give props to our amazing tour guide, Jose.  He actually works in their IT department so he didn’t really have a lot of firsthand knowledge of the products (although he did say he was a master with the item numbers!)  He said a lot of his paycheck goes back to the company when they host their company store on pay day.  He said he’ll FaceTime with his wife and she’ll tell him what to buy her.  Such a good husband, right?!?

I hope you enjoyed getting a glimpse into the CTMH office.  I know I really loved being able to take this tour.  It was a special experience.  And that is what life is all about–our experiences!

Live Beautifully Lattice Fold Card

Live Beautifully Lattice Fold Card

Close To My Heart’s Live Beautifully Paper + their Live Beautifully Stamp Set = pure beauty.  Add in this fun lattice fold and it’s perfection.  I absolutely love the look of the finished card!
