Enjoy Life card

I love this stamp set! It's called Enjoy Life. I love the vintage type stamp sets. This card was created using the CTMH You Rock papers. The paper pack is no longer available, but, here's the instructions for the card.

4 ¼” x 5 ½” side fold card base

  • 4 ¼” x 5 ½” You Rock Denim Dot B&T
  • 3 ¾” x 5” You Rock Swirl/Star B&T
  • 3 ½” x 4 ¾” Honey Cardstock
  • 3 ¼” x 4” Outdoor Denim Card stock
  • 2” x 3” White Card stock
  • 1 ½” x 3” White Card stock

Stamp the two corner stamps with Z2162 Honey Ink. Stamp bike and sentiment with Z2140 Outdoor Denim. Attach stamped images to Outdoor Denim cardstock and then to Honey card stock. Attach Swirl/Star B&T to Outdoor Denim B&T. Attach matted stamped image to card front as shown. Attach card front to card base.

September CTMH Club projects

For our September Imagine Club, we used X7144B Mischief Level 2 My Reflections Kit. I had so much fun doing these layouts as I absolutely love the new X7144C My Compliments Rub-ons. This layout is called Medley. You know what's really cool about the papers? On the top of each sheet of paper there's a little strip that includes information about the paper package on one side, and the other side has a design.

This layout is also created from the Mischief paper pack. I love how we can get two totally different looks from one package of paper. This layout is called Memoirs Complete.

For the Stamp a Stack Club, we used D1481 Vintage Type. I cut all of the tags, banners and and the little circles using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. The papers used to create the cards are a previous, no longer available Creative Basics pack (the Christmas papers) and the new X7139B Typeset papers.

August Club Projects

In our August Stamp a Stack club, we used stamp set D1491 Hooray Bouquet. I love the fact that CTMH has reduced the prices of the stamps, as now we can use some D sets in the club. The flowers can be cut on the Cricut as this stamp set goes with the Art Philosophy cartridge. As you browse through the Close To My Heart Idea Book, you'll see stamp images that have a red line drawn around them. That red line means there is a matching Cricut shape on the cartridge. On the carrier sheet of stamps, you'll also find that it tells you what size to cut the image in order for it to match the stamp. How cool is that?! The scallop circle card was also cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge.

For our August Imagine Club, we used X7143B Sonoma Level 2 Paper Pack. This paper is just so pretty. I also cut the doily circle from the new CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. I cut it in half and used it at the top and bottom of the two Olive photo mats.

Why Be A CTMH Consultant?

The best thing about being a Close To My Heart consultant is that you can set up your business to fit your life. Here are a few examples of the ways consultants have set up their businesses:

  • Hobbyists - Like getting scrapbooking, stamping and cardmaking products at a discount? Simply submit the minimum $300/quarter to maintain consultant status and receive the consultant discount of 22%.
  • Club Leader - You organize a monthly get-together to teach a project. Club members agree to purchase at least $150 in product. Each month, you select a hostess who's eligible to receive hostess rewards and extra product. You rotate the hostess each month so that everyone can take advantage of hostess rewards. You can have as many clubs going per month as you like- a layout club, card club, Cricut club or Studio J club.
  • Studio J Consultant - Not a paper scrapbooker? Maybe you'd like to set up a Studio J business based on CTMH's online scrapbooking software. Your customers would be those who are interested in making layouts fast, getting them professionally printed by CTMH, and having the option of sharing their layouts digitally with family and friends.
  • Business Builder - As a business builder, you will hold workshops or gatherings on a regular basis and recruit others to become a part of your team. If you're interested in making additional income and leading a team, running a CTMH business is an excellent opportunity for you.
And, beginning in October, CTMH has a new and improved compensation plan that includes even more incentives and rewards for you!

Remember, this special does not start until 10/1.
