Just a Quick Note…

Who do you know that would enjoy a quick note from you? Does someone have a birthday coming up or about to transition to a new phase of their life? Or maybe you are just feeling the need to connect and let them know you are thinking of them.

April 2015 SOTM Card

Regardless of the reason, April’s stamp of the month will say what needs to be said. Along with phrases for just about any occasion, it includes a classic typewriter and pointing hand.


The vintage look of this card is achieved by combining the old-fashioned typewriter stamped image with the neutral prints from the Yuletide Carol papers. Yes, I used Christmas paper for this card!

Since the focal point of this card is a stamped image, it needed variety in dimension and texture. I dimension by using 3D foam tape under the typewriter and adding baker’s twine and triangle studs.

The twine and studs also added some interesting textures while keeping a consistent look by using similar colors as the papers.

The Month is Marching On....Do you Haver Your Free Tote?

Earlier this month, I posted this chart showing why March is the best month to join my Close To My Heart team, the Treasure Keepers.

So what do you really get for your $99 joining fee? Let's break it down and add up the pieces. 

For this example, let's assume that you sell at least $400 in each of your first three months.  That's just one party per month! Easy, Peasy. Remember, we have the brand new summer products coming out in April!

1. A kit of brand new products that are not yet available for purchase with retail value over $355

2 The new Lagoon Chevron Shoulder Tote that retails for $26.95

3. The roomy, new Lagoon Rolling Tote that retails for $149.95

4. Commission of at least $264! 

5. Additional Special Product Credit of $75

6. Refund of $99 joining fee

The total value of the cash and products you would earn by just having three parties in your first three months is.... (drum roll)...

over $969! 

The first time I totaled that up, I honestly thought I had punched the numbers into my calculator wrong.

In addition, your first party will most likely be a kick-off party. 

7. As the hostess, you would earn an additional product credit of $60 plus get to choose any item for 50% off.

This brings your total cash and product earnings
 to well over $1,000! 

Not bad for a PART TIME JOB! 

Want to earn more? You can book additional parties, plan a crop, lead classes, or sell kits to increase your sales. Your earning increase dramatically as your monthly sales increase under our generous compensation plan. The sky really is the limit.

Get Organized with Evernote: The Stamp Notebook is Back!!

Do you struggle with organizing your stamp sets? Do you wish there was a way to quickly find the set that you want to use? Do you want to be able to search your stamp sets for a theme, holiday or other information without rummaging through all your boxes?  Do you wish you could access all of this information on your tablet or phone?

A little over a year ago, I started using Evernote to organize my stamp sets. This database tool helped me with all of the issues listed above. It allows me easily find the sets I want while using a very simple physical storage system. 

Watch this video to see how you can use Evernote to organize your stamp sets.

As explained in the video,  with the Evernote notebook, I can quickly and easily determine the stamp set I want to use by searching on the sentiments, themes, and images on the stamps. I can also quickly locate the physical stamp set since the database includes the Item number and the physical stamp set since all of my stamp sets are stored alpha-numerically by Item Number in the Close To My Heart Large Organizers (Z1835)

This simple storage system also makes it super easy to put my stamp sets away as soon as I'm done with them. I no longer have a stack of sets on my counter that need to be sorted and put back into the boxes. 

Once you have your Notebook set up, you can access it from your computer, tablet or phone. This means that your stamp sets are at your finger tips anywhere, anytime!

The wait is over! 

A preloaded Evernote Stamp Notebook is once again available to give you a jump start in your stamp organization. The new version has been updated to include the new Seasonal Expressions 2 stamp sets and has been reformatted to comply with copyrights on the stamp images.

Click here to learn how you can get your copy! >>

If you struggle with stamp organization, I urge you to give Evernote a try.  I love being organized and since I started using this system, my stamps are one area that always stays in order.

Now for the rest of my craft room...

NEW Cards for Next Monday's Workshop

This weekend, I made some new cards for next Monday's card workshop. My favorite is this coffee cup one. However, I'd have to cross off "coffee" and add Diet Mountain Dew, lol.

 This birthday card uses one of my favorite papers from the past, Wings.

 I also added a couple valentine's cards.

Here are a few more of the cards you'll have to choose from:

See something you'd like to make? You will have two hours to make as many cards as you like. You pick which ones you want! Would you like to come?
