Dreamin' Big with PML Cards

In February I taught a layout class that used our Dreamin' Big paper pack.  We used most of the paper and a couple of the PML cards from the pack but I still had SEVERAL cards left.  Multiply those cards by the number of paper packs needed for the class and I had a STACK!  So, I turned them into cards for my next Card Buffet!  

These cut apart Picture My Life Cards that are included in the paper pack are great for extending you layouts with our popular Pocket Plus Memory Protectors but if you don't have enough pictures to use them, then you can make cards with them.   I love using them to jumpstart a quick and easy card!

Here are four cards that I created.  These will all be included in my next Card Buffet coming up soon!


This card uses the Happy Birthday Thin Cut!  (Z3304)
I also used retired Florence Sequins which actually look great with this paper!


This simple card used TWO PML cards - one for the background and one for the sentiment!
I used the Dreamin' Big Cardmaking stamp and thin cut to add the butterfly.


I love the soft look of this Thinking of You card.  Again, I used the Dreamin' Big Cardmaking stampset and Thin Cuts.  (I LOVE THIS SET!).  Can you find the PML card on this one?  It's the woodgrain piece.  It had a red heart at the top but I covered it up with the juniper piece.


And, last, this really simple card turned out great!!  The "Life is an Adventure" is the PML card. I added a piece of black B&T across the bottom.  I used the Shower Flower (C1612) stamp which coordinates pretty well with this paper.  These flowers had to be fussy cut once I stamped them.  The thin cuts are spoiling me!  I used 3D Foam Tape and Thin Foam tape to give them some dimension.

The Dreamin' Big paper pack will only be available through the end of April!  It's so fun to work with!  Get it before it's gone forever!!

Stay tuned for the date of the my upcoming card buffet!

A Blog Hop for Close To My Heart's Thin Cuts!


Welcome to our Special Blog Hop featuring Close To My Heart's Thin Cuts!  We are featuring these Thin Cuts and Thin Cut bundles because during the month of March you can save BIG!  We are offering 25% off of every Thin Cut and Thin Cut Bundle!   So, come along with us on this blog hop and see all the creative ways you can use our Thin cuts!   If you came from Michelle Rowley's Blog, you are on the right track!   At the end of my post you will find the link to next blog to hop to!  If you get lost along the way you can find the complete list of hopper HERE.


I needed a Baby Shower card for this past weekend so this blog hop came just in time! When the Basic Circle Thin Cuts came out I couldn't imagine why I would need them!  But it turns out that I did!  They are so much fun.  I used 2 of the circles as peep holes for my card.  I love how I can place them anywhere I want to make my holes!  For this card I used Whimsy Fundamental papers and the elephants from the Baby Bundle Stamp.  I stamped the elephants with Whipser Ink onto the Watercolor pattern paper and their ears on the Sorbet pattern paper.   I used 3D Foam tape on the back of the striped Whimsy paper to pop it up to place the elephants behind.

March Sign Up Special for New Team Members!

If you missed the sign up special in February for new consultants, we have another special this month!  When you join my team and the Close To My Heart family, in addition to your consultant kit, you will receive the Sweet Birthday Thin Cuts and stampset for FREE! (For details on the New Consultant Kit, check out the Join My Team! tab on this blog!)



When I joined Close To My Heart I really just wanted to get the discount.   I loved the product so much, I started sharing Close To My Heart with my friends and they began to purchase from me also. I intended to give this whole consultant thing a year and then see where I wanted to go with it.  If it wasn't something I loved, I was going to give it up.  Eleven years later I'm stilling LOVING everything about it!  


Can I sign up just to get a discount on product?
SURE!  You can sign up today and just be a hobbyiest.  All you have to do to stay active is meet the quarterly minimum of $300.  Quarters run in 3 month periods - Jan-Mar, April-June, July-Sept and Oct-December.   Not sure you can do it all by yourself?  Share your catalog with your friends!  Start a small group that gets together once a month to scrapbook, or make cards.  Take orders at this get together and I guarantee you'll will meet your minimum easily!
Do I have to teach classes and do workshops?
NO!  Certainly not!  I started teaching classes and workshops several years ago because I found that I have a LOVE for sharing and showing others that everyone can be creative.  That is just me and what I love.  Sometimes I think people look at what I do and think they would have to do the same things I do!  When you sign up as a consultant, this is YOUR business and you run it the way YOU want to run it!  Do as little or as much as you want!  


What if I want to do more?  Is there help? YES!  There is all kinds of training available to consultants - even starting on Day 1!  Close To My Hearts provides many training videos and guides.  PLUS I'm here to help you every step of the way.  We have a special Straight To the Top Program that rewards new consultants for reaching levels in their first 90 days!  
If you want to go for Straight To The Top, I'll be there to help you in any way that I can!


Eleven years ago I signed up for the discount and just weeks ago I returned from my 2nd Incentive trip!  I never intended to try to earn any trips when I started out but I kept getting closer each year.  I knew it was time for me to take my business to the next level.  

It has been a long time dream for me build a team!  There are so many opportunities through out the year to build team relationships - through crops, Seasonal Launches, Convention (THE BEST!) and local team meetings!  I'm just waiting to share it with YOU!
