New Clubs starting in August!

Come Join In One of My Clubs!

My local and virtual Hostess Clubs are re-starting again in August 
and I have a few spots left.  

Wouldn't you like to get some FREE Close To My Heart products?  Join in one of my Hostess Clubs (local or online) and get some awesome FREE products!  
I would love to have you join in.  

What is a Hostess Club?

Hostess Clubs are a great way to budget build your supplies,
while learning new techniques, using new products, and creating fun projects. 
It’s also a great way to learn “hands-on” and try new products
before you purchase them!

Best of all, it’s an easy way to get FREE products!

The benefits of this club include:

  • Learn a new technique or project each month
  • Work on one of your projects while socializing with other scrapbookers
  • Receive a FREE copy of each new Idea Book during club membership
  • Receive FREE products during your hostess month
  • Receive a discount on all my workshops during club membership

Clubs typically consist of 6 people, meeting once a month for 6 months, and each member commits to purchasing $25 each month (before shipping/taxes).  This will allow each person during their hostess month to receive at least $25 in FREE products!  Each member gets a turn at hosting the club – which simply means bringing a light snack and getting FREE stuff!   You may also host a Home Gathering or bring outside orders to help increase sales for your Hostess month – which may increase the amount of FREE stuff you get.

The club meets at my house – so you don’t even have to clean your house!  And if there is a month (other than your host month) where you cannot make it, as long as you send in your order of at least $25, you are still in.   Once we meet the first month, we will decide on a day/time each month that works for everyone.

There are also workshops that I hold which have been so much fun.  You purchase the kit and we complete it at what is called a "Workshop-On-The-Go" held at my house.  Whether it's a 2-page layout or other papercraft, it's always fun to get together with a few other ladies and have a great time.

Studio J Changes

Okay, I know there are many of you who have heard me say "I don't like Studio J".  I am a "real" scrapbooker, I don't want anything that's digital.  Well, CTMH gave us convention goers a project.  Create and submit 5 two-page layouts to them before convention.  I just tossed the project aside for a bit but then I went back to it.  I completed the assignment with their step by step guide and submitted them.  They printed them up and gave them to us at convention and I have to say, I AM HOOKED!!  Not only am I now hooked on Studio J, they have made some awesome changes with this product.

First, No more Membership Fees!!  Wow!  Before, there were some layouts and papers that were only available to "members only" but now anyone can have access to all the wonderful papers and layouts that they have available, all WITHOUT a membership!!  The layouts are only $6.50 and so worth the money since they print your photos on the page for you!   There are also simple and easy "Express Collections", 66 in all, where the layouts are photo ready.  You just upload your photos, change the title, add your journal box and you're done!!  

Join My Team!

There are now TWO new Consultant Kits available.  As of now, not only do we have the regular "Master" kit, we now have what we call our "Essentials" kit.  Where the Master Kit ($99) contains everything you need to start your business, the Essentials kit contains most of the same products, minus a few and minus a few forms and such.....for only $49!!  That's right, you can get started for only $49, with over $130 worth of items, starting now!!  And, as an added bonus, if you sign up in August (and while supplies last!) you will receive the same awesome bag that I got from the convention......a $50 value and it's FREE!
