Cruise 2008 albums finally finished !!!!

Well it took me long enough I know !!!

It was a 12 day trip - 7 days around the Mediterranean & 3 days in the UK.
And I am pleased to tell you that back in February I finally finished it and took a photo of the stack of albums which I had to use to be able to contain all of the layouts 
which I had made of our amazing vacation :O)
I put the ink pads next to it to give you a point of reference to you can see just how many layouts I did !!
This project was truly Close To My Heart. 
The top album contains just the 3 days in the UK - the bottom 2 are of the 
cruise :O)
I used the same paper, cardstock and inks throughout all 3 albums - makes life so easy.
Hope this makes you smile :O)   Love Sara x

Chisato's cute purse :O)

A few months ago one of my class members - Chisato 
- walked into the class holding a darling purse - 
we all 'ooohhhed' and 'aaahhhhed' over it and she told us she had made it. 
We all complimented her on how cute it was and joked that we all needed one too.
It wasn't until a little while had passed when it suddenly occurred to me
that the adorable brown and white striped ribbon was Close To My Heart Ribbon!!!
OMG - what a cute way to use it - not just for cards and layouts but for your purses too :O)

Hope you like it as much as we did - Love Sara x

Scrapbook layout class at Masako's House :O)

I wanted to share the fun scrapbook layout class I teach at my dear friend Masako's house every month - we have so much fun learning new techniques.
This  month we used the Dakota WOTG paper & stamp set plus the co-ordinating stamp set and then added Sweetleaf and Buttercup cardstock to it to make a Spring/Summer layout 
- not at all Western themed.
We used the White Daisy exclusive ink to distress the edges of the Sweetleaf cardstock and then used Whisper ink to distress the whisper cardstock. 
We scissor distressed the barn red cardstock and stamped the line image on it (I think the stamp 
looks  a bit like a fancy mustache haha) and stamped Buttercup ink on the Buttercup 
cardstock for a tone on tone effect :O)
***Yes I know that the layout is the wrong way up and you need to hold your head at an angle but I can't work out how to spin the photo as it took it on my iphone and uploaded it straight from there LOL :O)***

The layout is from the new Make It From your Heart magazine - have I told you how much I love this magazine??? OMG - it is awesome - scrapbook layouts & card blueprints & cutting guides - I can highly recommend it :O)

Hope you like it as much as I do  - Love Sara x

Okay so to give you even more of an idea of what we get up to at Convention - along with the
Create n Takes, business classes, and Extravaganza classes -
here are a couple more photos which show you the fun we have :O)

Below is a photo of JuliAnne, Victoria, Dana and I with the CTMH sign - there was a table of
sparkly hats & jackets - how could we resist!!!
 The photo below makes me giggle every time I see it 
- Dana gave us all a turquoise bandanna and told us to get creative on how we wore it - 
we didn't let her down - especially as we were also given mustaches to wear!!!

What Victoria & I didn't realise was that Kristen was in the photo too - so when this was posted we just cracked up laughing.
Hope it makes you smile as much as it does me :O)

Halloween Potions

So . . . .  what do you think of these adorable holders which I made for the over-sized test tubes which I had purchased online from Amazon? 
I used the Cruicut to cut out the labels and the co-ordinating mats for them and glued them to the glass with liquid glass. The holders I made up as I went along - so sorry I don't have cutting ans scoring guides for these :O(
I used the corner rounder to scallop the edges of the Smokey Plum cardstock and layered it over Black cardstock. I used the silver adhesive trim on top of the cardstock then used a Paper flower with a cricut flower in the center. of that. Then I added silver Glitz gel glue to the center of those.
I used mini sparkles on the Pickled toad and Eye of owl labels - you probably have to zoom in on the photo to see them.
I filled one with chocolate covered raisins and the other with candy 'eyeballs' from the baking section of the grocery store - so stinkin' cute :O)

Hope you like them,  Love Sara xxx

My Beautiful Bracelet

I had to show you my gorgeous bracelet - I do have a couple more charms to add to it but wanted to share it with you so far. This is my Celebrate Close To My Heart bracelet and it represents all sorts of areas of my business with Close To My Heart. So this is what the charms represent
The butterfly was a gift from my dearest friend in CTMH - so it represents ALL of the friends I have made since  I joined CTMH 9 years ago.
The Heart is for Close To My Heart and the love that Janette Lynton - the CEO - has for us all.
The Suitcase represents my 1st cruise which I earned which was to Alaska.
The Fish represents the 2nd cruise which was the Mediterranean cruise.
The Kiwi was for the New Zealand land trip
The Palm Tree was for the Western Caribbean cruise
There is a Star Fish (waiting to be added) which represented the cruise to the Eastern Carribean cruise.
Then there is Mickey Mouse which represents the fun Conventions we have had at the Disney resorts
The Bag of Money represents the money I earn from being an Independent Consultant with CTMH - it ways for Leo to do Marching Band, both of the boys trumpet payments, my car and fun trips which we wouldn't be able to take otherwise.
And finally the Turtle was for the Hawaiian island cruise which I earned this year and the pearl is from the oyster I opened when we were on Waikiki beach.
I need another bead to represent the upcoming cruise - this time to the Southern Caribbean which I have earned and will cruise in February 2013.
Hope you like it :O)

I want to welcome Robyn to our team :O)

WOOOOHOOOOO - welcome Robyn - I am so glad you have come to join us. 

When I spoke to her about joining the team - Robyn wasn't sure - she didn't really want to go and do gatherings - 'thats okay' I told her 'you don't have to go and go that - but how about getting your scrapbooking products for a bonus and getting other scrapbooking products absolutely FREE'. 

She loved that idea and has totally fallen in love with the beautiful damask bag in that beautiful Lagoon color which she will get free with her sign up kit.
I am thrilled to have her on my Legacies of Love team and we are going to have fun with
Monica Wihongi when she comes for our play date and all of that new Close To My Heart product :O)

I love the fact that we can be Consultants without being Consultants . . .

. . . . .  'Okay Sara' I can hear you say 'that title makes no sense at all"

Well it really does. I had a long conversation with my dear friend Sarah yesterday and we talked about the ways that you can be a CTMH Consultant.

The easiest way and probably the most popular way is just to be your own customer. You sign up to be a consultant and just buy your own scrapbooking supplies at a minimum of 22% discount. 
You don't do gatherings and don't recruit but you have the benefit of doing your own cardmaking, papercrafting and scrapbooking with discounted and free products. Easy - right???.

The second way is again hugely popular. You become a consultant and once every couple of months your friends order items through you and you show them new techniques - this is really popular because I know so many of you get together to scrap with your friends for a night of fun. 
Not only will you still get your prodects discounts but you will earn money from the products
that your friends buy.

The third way is to hold gatherings with new & established customers and encourage the people you meet to become part of your team - you earn money, vacations, awards and it becomes a business.

There is no right way or wrong way to be a consultant with Close To My Heart 
- every way is the correct way - 
Its your choice :O)
