I know, it isnt even Halloween yet, WHY!!! are talking about christmas? Well, as a crafter, I need to make things in advance to sell at craft fairs and on Etsy. Truth is I started about a month ago. But, I love this time of year.The weather changes, the leaves change too. It just screams holiday season.
So, I wanted to share with you this tree I made last night. It is actually on the cover of our Holiday Gift Guide.
As soon as I saw this cover I could not wait until the paper was available to order. The paper is cute. Not traditional in any way, but really works with those basic colors of green and red. It’s called Sparkle&Shine. It will be available for all of you to purchase starting on the 15th of October.
During this month, I will be featuring this tree as my kit of the month item.
If you would like to join this club it is very simple.You make a 6 month commitment to purchase 25.00 minimum to participate. Each person in the club will have their time to be the “hostess”. That means that she is entitled to 25.00 free merchandise from the current catalog, and she can get more free items if she chooses by inviting friends and family to place orders during her month.It is completely up to the individual how much she will gain in free product, no obligation other then the 25.00 a month. It is a great way to build on your craft supplies.
Of course, there are always specials during each month. Please email me directly to sign up for the 6 month commitment.
If you dont want to commit, that cool too. I run monthly kit classes as well as the clubs.
I have told myself to just get started with your monthly kits and folks will fall in line with it. Okay, so I have officially kicked my own tail into gear. So, for my first kit of the month, I present a mini-album, with a baby/kids theme. The entire album was cut with the Artbooking cartridge which has a unique feature. When cutting the overlays, titles or pages themselves- you only need to set your size one time. Everything that cuts for this album will automatically be proportioned to fit the size of your album
Here is a breakdown of the kit contents:
C1558 Wild Wonders Stamp Set-(10)
Cardstock colors-Chocolate,Twilight,Slate,Sunset (2 ea.)
Ruby Chevron Ribbon
Embossed Badge Buttons
Baker’s Twine(Hemp) natural
Chiboard (2) front &back covers
Instructions for ASSEMBLY
OPTIONAL: For those that do not own the Artbooking cartridge, I can cut the overlays and tags and frames needed to complete as shown. There is a 5.00 additional fee for cutting.
I have an awesome deal for you. With the purchase of this kit, I am offering the Artbooking Cartridge for only 30.00! That’s a savings of 70.00!!
The Artbooking cartridge is filled with more than 700 images, 8 mini-albums, and 6 layouts.
But you need to hurry on this deal,it is available for a short time and only with me on this site.
As if that isnt enough incentive, you will qualify for the special 3 sheet stamp set- “You Re My Happy” for 10.00- This month is National Stamping Month!
“You Are My Happy
Trio stamp set
As you can see, this is a great month to start monthly kits If all above were purchased at full retail, it would total close to 300! But, you can pick up all of these wonderful stamp sets, one of the best Cricut cartridges available and co-ordinating papers with accessories to complete the cutest mini-album. All of this at regular prices would run closer to 300.00 but you can pick up this kit for 30.00, the Artbooking for 30.00, The trio stamp set for 10.00, and the Stamp of the Month for 5.oo, for a total of 75.00! a 225.00 savings!

Once again thanks for the opportunity to serve your crafting needs.
Heres a look at all 3 Cricut cartridges CTMH has to offer, and a look at all the kits include! It is an awesome deal at only 99.00! Enjoy!
My it has been a very busy week! It ran by quite fast this time, could not believe it is Friday already-TGIF!
If you follow along on my blog, you may already know that I have signed on to be a consultant for Close to my Heart. This is my second time around and this time I am working it like a business.
So, the first order of business is marketing! That’s why you are reading about this now
I really do love the product line. I have had many opportunities to play with other product lines that are available these days. There is no shortage of shops online and in your local town, to keep all of us happy in our crafting needs. It took me awhile to kinda discover my taste in design. Hope that makes sense. And I love a vintage style, maybe even shabby chic. But, there are times when a card or a mini- album just screams for color and class. That is where I put Close to my Heart(CTMH) in my scrapbooking and card making.
What brings me to my title. There are so many companies that have guest designers to showcase their product line. It really is a genius marketing strategy. Most of the designers you are familiar with started out as avid crafters, just like you and me. What makes you buy a particular paper or embellishment? It is how it is designed by the people chosen to do just that!
Within CTMH, the consultants, plus the idea book aide us in presenting the product line to the public. But, I am just one person! If you only see my designs your not looking at all of the potential that embellishment or stamp has? So, I decided, I want some guest designers! Why not? So please keep reading and I will explain it all to you.
What’s in it for you? First, you have the opportunity to score free product from me and CTMH. You keep whatever is left over after your projects is finished.
Internet exposure. Drive more traffic to your blog, YouTube channel and Facebook pages.
Start building up your customer database- if you sell products yourself.This is a great way to network with people who have similar interests.
Plus- it is fun, fun, fun!!
What do I get? I get much of the same benefits. In fact, I gain exactly what you do. With the addition of hopefully gaining some sales or even those interested in being a consultant with CTMH.
If you have read this far, it is safe to say you are interested in this proposal? Good, let me tell you what is required.
In order to participate, you must have one or all of these-
A blog. Youtube channel or Facebook page( Facebook pg. must be a page dedicated to crafting, not your personal page.) You will receive various products to showcase CTMH, and will design something from what you receive. Plus I will throw in some goodies just for you
If this sounds like fun, and you would like to join in, please email me at Ancheta@Centurylink.Net with Designer in the subject line.
There is only a few spots available, so act fast!
I will contact you, and give more detailed information.
Thanks Friends, Happy Scrappin’
Hello to all you crafty folks. It has been a while since being ready to write. I took a bit of a break from crafting anything, but chose instead to educate myself a little more on different techniques used in scrapbooking.It seems there is no shortage of different ways to ink a stamp and transfer that to paper…neatly The reason I needed to stop jumping in blindly, I was signing up to do swaps in a couple of groups I participate in- without knowing the technique. I thought I could just wing it. Turned out awful and I wasted not only time but some expensive card stock to boot. In the upcoming months, I will be sharing these techniques here on my blog.
Along the same line of news….I have re-joined Close To My Heart, as a consultant. They now offer 2 ways to get started. For those on a budget, there is a 49.00 sign up deal. That still gets you a good deal of new products, your discount,a shopping website that is available to new consultants free of charge. That is a huge deal, e-commerce sites usually run about 25-49 dollars per month. http://creat-w-kat.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Consultant_EssentialsKit.jpg
I have always loved CTMH’s product line. The variety is good, I love the exclusive ink colors they have now. If you like to stamp like I do, you just cant go wrong with this company. I think the style is classic. I have seen lines that a cartoonish, and that has never appealed to me. The other incentive that was for new consultants signing up in May only, is the rest of the stamp of the month set’s from April-July. I am a sucker for free stamps! Just look at them
Generally, these sets are only available for 1 month. Normal retail is 17.95, however, if you spend 50.00 or more, then the stamp is yours for 5.00.
I was lucky enough to take advantage of this new incentive. I just love the stamps of the month. Some of them are just perfect for any occasion. These sets are no exception to the norm
If you are interested in signing up as a consultant, or would like to take a look at the catalog, just visit HTTP://katancheta.ctmh.com.
Happy Scrappin” Y’All
Hi everyone! I have been busy spending time with some crafty ladies at yahoo group mini albums. I will be posting pictures and tutorials soon of all the new projects I have been working on. In the meantime, I wanted to start a monthly giveaway for followers of my blog. This month’s giveaway is valued at 99.00! It is the Art Philosophy Collection from Close to my Heart!
It can be yours free by following my social networks! To be eligible you must sign up on all 3 sites.
That is all there is to it! A winner will be chosen by Random.Org on May 30th, 2012.
Good Luck and Happy Scrappin’
PS- If you already subscribe, leave a comment on all sites referencing Art Philosophy in the comment form
When I am lacking concentration, I usually turn to doing something that will keep my attention. For me, it is making flowers for cards, layouts and home decor. You almost always need flowers for embellishments so I make sure to a bunch at one time and keep my stash going.
I will be making a tutorial in the next few days so keep an eye on your inbox! Of course you must follow me to get the updates. Scroll down till you see the Linky Followers button, it is that easy.
Have a scrapping good day’
