Typeset Streamlined Scrappin' for August

Here is the LEFT page of the focus layout we'll be creating in August using the fabulous new Typeset kit!  See that large fancy photo mat, we're going to cut that out with the Cricut!  Whoo hoo!  We're going to be able to do such cool stuff with that cartridge, I just can't wait to it to get here next week.
Now remember, if you want to come to club next month, YOU MUST LET ME KNOW (and send payment or use a credit card) BY JULY 31!  It's not like before, where you could decide the day of club that you were coming.  You must pre-order your kit!  I hope you decide to come!  The Basic Kit is just $20 and includes all sorts of goodies--just check out the Streamiline Scrappin' Tab above to read all about it.

Brand New Consultant Kit: You can get this NOW!

Convention 2011 has ended and I think I'm feeling some withdrawal symptoms--I'm still searching Twitter, facebook, and consultant blogs to see and read what happened!  It was fun to stay up to the minute with all that was announced through Twitter-I think I even know how it works now (you can follow me there by searching for @jennifercoxctmh). 

Anyway, the NEW consultant kit started ALREADY and if you have been thinking of joining, now is the time!  We are so up to the minute on the trends in the papercrafting world and every change that has been made is for the better!  One of those changes is, of course, the new consultant kit.  Back to $99 but continuing to offer you add-on options, it is a FABULOUS kit!  My favorite in a long time, actually!

Please contact me if you would like to join CTMH as part of my team!  I am actively seeking new team members and would LOVE to have YOU join me!

I was in a Twitter/Facebook frenzy today!  One of my favorite reasons to go to Convention is you get to see everything and hear about all the new changes before anyone else, but we relied heavily on some consultants who Tweeted/Posted throughout all the excitement!  I still miss being there, but I did get to hear about lots of things pretty quickly!  You can see what's ahppening on Twitter by looking for #CTMH2011.  For Facebook, you can "like" my business page (Jennifer Cox-Close to My Heart Independent COnsultant) and get your updates there.

No Disneyland for me this year...

  Right now, hundreds of Close to My Heart consultants from all over the United States and Canada are getting ready to travel to Disneyland in California!  I, sadly, am not one of them.

I had plans to go to convention in Disneyland this year, as I made the last two conventions (2010 in DC and 2008 in Orlando, Florida).  I made my reservations in the hotel, had roommates, booked my flights and even knew which airports I preferred to connect into to make my flight easier.  I bought my convention tickets, made plans for the kids, and was SO incredibly excited!  I found out how easily it would be to get to the beach in California so I could put my toes in the Pacific and was super excited about that.

Right now is not a good time for me to be away from my kids for nearly a week.  So I had to undo all my plans for convention and find, somewhere, a silver lining.

And being an optimistic person, I did find that lining.  HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!

I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan and am going to see the last installment this Thursday, in 3D, in the IMAX Theater in Atlantic City.  So while it is not convention with all my CTMH pals, I will get to see Harry save the Wizarding World.  At least there's that!

Retiring Paper Packs and Level 1 Kits retiring too!

Since I haven't been able to find my Mojo lately, I thought I'd tell you about our retiring paper packs.  Close to My Heart is only bringing FOUR of the current paper packs forward into the new Fall/Winter Idea Book.  They are keeping Mayberry, Lucky, Fanfare, and and Sophia.  That means that BLISS, MIRACLE, WINGS, and SWEETHEART are retiring forever!  Below are images of each of these retiring kits:





I also wanted to remind you that ALL LEVEL 1 KITS ARE RETIRING!!!  This entire line is going!  So, if you love Level 1 kits for their *Faster*Simpler*Easier* philosophy like I do, then it's time to stock up.  Through the month of July, you can order ALL of our current paper packs as well as last Fall's four packs, that are in the Spring/Summer Idea Book.  I have no idea what Level 1 kits are going to be replaced with, if anything, so if you have been waiting to stock up, WAIT NO MORE!  Go to my website as soon as possible and buy your favorites!

July NO RULES Scrapbooking Club: Fanfare!


What a super cute paper pack!  Blues, red, bright yellow, and a touch of black too.  See that adorable pennant on the layout?  That is a stamp set that is so easy to use--just stamp the letters you need and trim them out to make a name pennant!  Add a bit of ribbon or hemp to string them together and add to cards or layouts or any other project you might have.

This month's NO RULES Scrapbooking Club will meet on July 21st and July 22nd.  We will definitely have a 10 am meeting on the 21st and a 7 pm meeting on the 22nd, and if needed I can add a 7 pm on the 21st as well.  If you're on my email list you'll get an email letting you know.  If you are not on my email list and would like to be, please scroll down and find the box on the right to add yourself.  Thanks!
