How cute is this card? We'll talk about that in just a minute (get the stamp set and die cuts I used to make it FREE in March!). First, let's talk about some serious fun that was had last weekend...
This past Saturday was a very special event with Close To My Heart. We have a brand new mini-catalog coming out on May 1. Close To My Heart Consultants get to see that publication early and even order from it a whole month ahead of customers (just one of the awesome perks of being a CTMH Consultant).
Quite often, when a new mini-catalog is debuting, Close To My Heart has what they call "Launch Events" across the US, Canada and Australia. Consultants can come and see new things, and make beautiful new projects using the new products in the catalog. How cool is that?
There were launch events in many cities across the US, and one of them was right near me...in Salt Lake City, UT. I had 21 of my team members attend with me. In addition, I had team members across the country attending launch events in Anaheim, CA, Sacramento, CA, Andover, MA, Bloomington, MI, Detroit, MI, San Antonio, TX, St. Louis, MO and Alexandria, VA. In total, 54 of my team members got to experience a launch event, many for the very first time! I have been inundated with messages from first-timers telling me how much they loved every second. Here are several photos of my team members having a great time!
In Salt Lake City, our day began on Saturday with a team lunch. Unfortunately not everyone who was attending the Launch Event was able to be there early enough for the lunch, but there were still several of us there. We even got our own private room and enjoyed visiting, laughing, and anticipating the new product we would be seeing and playing with in just a couple short hours.
|Here we are at our private lunch at Shula's. You can see my eye in the bottom right hand corner. This is the only photo that day that I am actually in. I was too busy taking photos of all of my team members to actually be in one!|
I embossed the cupcake and candle in gold, then used my watercolor paints to softly add color. I've included a list of all of the products I used on this card, complete with photos and links to the products, at the very end of this post for your convenience.
I'd love to have you join my team! We not only enjoy awesome commissions and discounts, but have such a great time together doing it!
