$725 worth of goodies for just over $200! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

What fun was today's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! Can you believe that I hopped through all 43 consultants' blogs? Wow, they really put me to shame.....I'm going to have to try harder next month! Did you get some great ideas for this July Stamp of the Month? I found a couple of cards that I might add to my card class. How exciting!!!

Well, I know that it's Wednesday - not Monday - but I'm finally getting around to the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. This is my third one and I'm really enjoying the challenge! My issue now is that I'm so busy making cards, I'm not getting any scrapbooking done! Good grief!

I used CTMH's Silhouette Level II Paper Packet for this one (the most gorgeous paper ever created)! I don't think I will ever run out of it 'cause I bought waaaay too much...tee hee! I actually sent in a product suggestion for another classically elegant paper like this one. It has been my best seller to date! I believe every CTMH consultant has redone their wedding album with this paper!

Anyway, back to my card. I have been disappointed with my ability to find sympathy sets that I thought were appropriate. Either the font was nice or the sentiment was okay...but nothing perfect. Until now! Verve Stamps' new release Forever in Our Hearts is just about perfect. You can't tell from this photo, but I also stamped one of the sentiments inside, as well as a few of the leaves. I also cut out some of the floral images from the paper and popped it up on the Desert Sand square. I really like it, don't you?

Inks: Black (CTMH)
Stamps: Forever in Our Hearts (Verve Stamps)
Other: Dove Punch (Martha Stewart), Pewter Pearl (Kaiser), Pearls (Michaels), Black Organdy Ribbon (CTMH), Nestabilities (Spellbinders)

Now - have I got a deal for YOU!!! tee hee. Do I sound like Monty Hall from Let's Make A Deal? "Carol Merrill, what's behind door #3?" I used to looove that show when I was a kid! But I digress. During July, anyone who signs up to be a Close To My Heart consultant gets to choose five cool items FREE!

It's already an extremely great deal, without the special! I originally signed up to get a great (and I mean GREAT) discount on my scrapbooking products, but I was so overwhelmed by the wonderful products that I've been able to develop a nice little side business!

The basic consultant kit has $300 worth of products and supplies for just $99! If you want, you can add one or both of the bonus packs for even more products and more savings. The scrapbooking bonus kit is just $60, but you get $180 worth of products! Then the cardmaking bonus kit, which is just $50, has $150 worth! You can see the contents of these kids in the Idea Book Summer 2009 here.

But wait - there's more! (tee hee). During July, when you join my team, you can choose five of these items - that's up to $98 in extra stuff FREE - and the tax and shipping for the free stuff is on the house! WOOHOO!!!! Choose FIVE of these awesome items:
  1. My Acrilix "Thank You" Stamp Set ($22.95) - I used this in the blog hop today!

  2. Magic Moments Scrapbook Kit ($34.95)

  3. Basic Textured Cardstock Combo Pack ($14.95)

  4. Life Delights Memory Showcase Kit ($12.95)

  5. My Originals "Hello Birdie" Card Kit ($12.95)

  6. Creative Basics Silhouette Collection ($8.95) - coordinates with the card shown above!

  7. HeartFelt Whimsy Die Cuts ($9.95) - my favorite new product!

  8. All-Out Adventure Rub-Ons ($9.95)

  9. Window Charms Squares ($9.95)

Good grief! I wish I could join again this month! Do you realize that if you purchased the basic kit, both bonus kits and chose the first five free items, you would spend $209 plus tax and shipping, but receive over $725 in products!!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!! What a great time to start your business.....start scrapbooking and get the idea!!!

I'd love to have you as a member of my Young Hearts team. We have teams with members all over the easy with blogs, e-mail, and cell phones! Why wait any longer? Start today!!!

p.s. On another note, I wanted to remember to say thank you sooo much for the kind comments that you leave. I don't know if you realize what an encouragement it is to us bloggers!

Sweet dreams,
