That’s actually one of the really fun benefits of being a Close To My Heart Consultant!  You get the opportunity to see, order and play with new  product ahead of anyone else.

CTMH Seasonal Expressions 2 Sneak Peek 2

This past weekend I went to a launch event for the upcoming Seasonal Expressions 2 Catalog (it’ll debut May 1st–mark your calendars now!)  We got a chance to see the new catalog, get a selection of new products and create 6 AMAZING projects.  It was a blast.

2017 Seasonal Expressions 1 CTMH Consultant Kit

But guess what?  You can get in on the fun, too!  Starting on April 1st, when you sign up to become a CTMH Consultant, you’ll get a brand new Consultant Kit with *NEW* product–a month early!  This is NOT an April Fools joke =) Plus, you’ll be able to order any of the other *NEW* products you want a month early, too.  Awesome, right?! (note: this picture is of the current kit; your kit would have all the *NEW* papers in place of these papers pictured.)

So you officially have 3 days to prepare yourself–review my FAQs about being a CTMH Consultant and then ask any remaining questions you have.  Then Saturday morning, April 1st, you can sign up and get your Consultant Kit on its way to you.  And, don’t forget to strategize on what items from the new catalog you will use the $50 Select Product Credit you receive as part of your kit on.  So fun!!

Oh, and as part of your research process, you should definitely check out this information and these videos about becoming a CTMH Consultant.  Finally, I’m always available to answer any questions you have about the process, the requirements or any other questions that pop up for you.  Simply EMAIL ME and I’ll get back to with the info you need.  And if you’re ready…

Personalize Your Scrapbook Album

Stripes Everyday Life Album

Today we are going to visit the idea of personalizing your scrapbook album through the use of a couple of easy tricks.

Striped Album with Ribbon Ties

First, if you are making a mini album or even a full-size album as a gift, a nice touch is to add ribbon ties to it (note: I recommend using Liquid Glass to adhere the ribbon to the inside covers of the album.)

Decorated Inside Cover of Striped CTMH Album

Second, why not decorate the inside covers with some pretty coordinating papers for a really complete look.  This also helps hide the mechanics of the ribbon ties!

Close-up Decorated Inside Cover of Striped CTMH Album

For this particular one, I used the beautiful Uptown Fundamentals Collection and layered the papers to line the inside of the album–both the front and back covers.

These 2 tricks–while super simple–add a really nice touch.  Give it a try next time you want to give a gift of a scrapbook or even to take your own scrapbook album up a notch!
