Big News!!!

Along with changes to my blog, I decided I wanted to make money doing what I love to do. I love inspiring others to create. So I am now selling Close to my Heart's amazing products. 

I personally owned some of their Acrylic stamps, and loveed the quality. I also think that some of the best Cricut Cartridges are the ones that Close to my Heart sells. So far I own the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection & the Cricut Artiste Collection. There are so many cuts that you will really use everyday on these Cricut Cartridges. They really have cuts for everything. The reason I called them Collections is because you don't just purchase a Cricut Cartridge but a whole collection of supplies. Each Cricut Collection sold by Close to my Heart includes:
          1 - Cricut Cartridge
          3 - My Acrylix D-size Stamp Sets
          3 - Chipboards with coordinating shapes that go along with the stamps

The stamps go with the Cricut Cartridge. They even marked what size the image needs cut out for the stamp to go on it. As you can tell I love the Cricut Cartridges sold by Close to my Heart. But there was a no brainer reason why I decided to sell it. Let me tell you why...
There is a Special that if you join Close to my Heart as an independent consultant in the month of April you get to choose one of these amazing Cricut Collections for FREE. Yes I said a FREE Cricut Cartridge, 3 stamp sets that coordinate, and Chipboard that coordinates.

I also thought that the Consultant kit was very affordable for all the great product you get to share with others, as you make more money, on your own schedule.

This is defiantly alot of great product to start your business off with for only $99 (approximately a $309 retail value). Especially since your get a Cricut Collection for Free ($99 value).

A great aspect of Close to my Heart is that you can have monthly workshops where people craft and order product. People can also host a Gathering and create a small project to take home as they get to touch & see the products for themselves.  Its so much fun to get together with other ladies and teach them how to create a project that can cherish their memories.

Please check out my Close to my Heart website to see all the great products for yourself:

If you have any questions feel free to email me at:  

Also if what you see sounds really good & you would like to join my Close to my Heart team, let me know. I would love to talk with you more about making the decision to make money while inspiring others to do something you enjoy doing.

Blog Research & Changes

After taking a long much needed break from blogging, I decided to come back and make some changes. I wanted to make my blog better so I started researching how to make it better. I found an amazing blog along the way that helped me improve Simple Creations Paper Crafts. If you want to improve your blog check out: The Sits Girls
They taught me how to clean up my page. How to write blogs. How to create a watermark for my pictures. How to create and add a blog button. 
They introduced me to an amazing FREE photo editing program online.  Check out I created a new letterhead, blog button, Facebook header, and watermark all in this FREE program. It can edit pictures from your computer and then save them to your computer. No downloading software necessary. However, it does need Flash to run. Therefore, I can't edit photos on my iPad. 

Here are several things I created using PicMonkey. Designing these were almost as fun as scrapbooking. 

Once I created and saved these new designs I started updating my Blog & Facebook Page. That way I have the same logo on everything. 

My Blog is a work in progress. I will always be working on it and changing things to improve it.
