Close To My Heart Convention, New Idea Book, New Products, and MORE!!

I have been a Close To My Heart Consultant for two years now and I just attended my very first Convention in Dallas, TX! I had so much fun that I have already made plans to go to the next one in Orlando, FL! I may have gone alone, but I met so many wonderful Close To My Heart sisters, and they made me feel right at home. One of my favorite things I got to do there was participate in the card swaps. I only got around to making 75 of them...I know sad right? But I brought home 75 new cards with all diferent levels of talent. Next year I will make more!

New Idea Book
The new Idea Book will go live on my website on August 1st and it is jam-packed with over-the-top new products and artwork! If you would like your own copy of the Idea Book, you are more than welcome to stop by for a free one. If you'd like one mailed to you, just email me at

One of my FAVORITE New Products
We have a brand new Cricut Collection called Artiste and it is, in my opinion, the best cartridge on the market today...for so many reasons! Witt 700 exclusive images, the cartridge features themed projects, interactive cards, awards, and MORE!! From robots and spooks to wedding and Valentines, your cupcake liners, ivitations, and party favors will coordinate and quickly come together for any celebration!

* Cutting and assembling the MANY 3-D items is a snap using the projects reference
* There is a sepperate step-by-step assembly book.
* Each key has items that work together. For instance, if there are things that
work together, they are on the same key. If they layer with eachother: same key!
Get the idea?
* Many keys are themed for different things. For example: wedding, birthday,
space, ect.
* If you have your 'Real Dial Size' off, all layering pieces will automatically
cut to fit the bottom image, without having to resize.
* Many of our new stamp sets coordinate with this cartridge. As you go through
the new Idea Book (which will go live here on my blog on August 1st), you
will see many sets that have images the are outlined in red. Those items
coordinate with Cricut images. It will specify which cartridge (Artist or Art
Philosophy). When you receive your stamp set, you will see that it also tells
you what size to cut the image as well as which page to find it on the
instruction book.

When you purchase the CTMH/Cricut Artiste Collection, you'll get:
1-Cartridge (with 700 exclusive images including themed projects, cards, font,
shapes, cupcake liners, accordian and rolled flowers, and TONS of 3-D boxes,
purses, and other items)
text-align: left;
3-new D-sized coordinating stamp sets
text-align: left;
3-sheets of coordination chipboard shapes (with speech bubbles, a mini-album, and
lots of banner shapes)
text-align: left;
1-project reference guide

I came back from my first CTMH convention recharged! I met so many new CTMH sisters, especially my roommate Audrey. The classes were awesome, the products BEAUTIFUL, the inspiration speeches brought on so many tears, and all I have to say I want to do it all over again!! I have so many new ideas swimming around in my head right now...and there is just not enough time in the day to get anything done! I have been ordering new business cards, Idea Books, Convention Bundles, and redesining my blog since yesterday! Thanks to my husband for the blog help! I can't wait to share everything with all my scrappy friends!! O and I almost forgot...I changed the name of my blog to the sassy scrapper! Just thought it was time for a change!
