I have a couple of side jobs that have to do with my love of crafts. I became a "Close to My Heart" (CTMH) Consultant back in April 2007. CTMH offers great products for Scrapbooking and Stamping. I've never been a Scrapbooker and I'm still not. I've tried a couple of layouts and hope to do more in the future, but I love to make cards and alter items using all the great papers and accessories.
When I signed up my goal was not really to sell much product. I basically wanted to get a discount on supplies for myself. I've done a couple of small gatherings for some friends and they went well, but I haven't put a big focus on that at this time.
I do plan to have an open house hopefully sometime in January. The new spring "Idea Book" (that's what CTMH catalogs are called because they do have lots of great photos of artwork to go along with all of the products and offer a lot of inspiration) came out on January 1st. I'd love to get copies to anyone that's interested and let people see actual samples of some of the new papers and stamps that are available in this new book. I'll let people know when I schedule the Open House. You can also check out the link on the right side of my blog to my CTMH website.
I did do a scrapbook layout for a contest through CTMH and I thought it turned out pretty cute, so I thought I'd post a photo of that one. Enjoy!!
