I am now officially a Close to My Heart independent consultant!

With the many changes of the previous company I was affiliated with, I felt I could no longer serve you, all my friends and customers, with the products and services you need and want.

What does this mean to you?

First up, no changes for my digital customers.  I will continue to support Storybook Creator and Memory Manager, and have printing sources as well as artwork suppliers for you!

For my traditional scrapbookers - I know many of you stocked up on albums and pages, but were looking for a good source of cardstock and decorative paper to complete your layouts, as well as side-loading pages that fit your existing albums for those of you who like to use both sides of your paper, or digital page prints.
Close to My Heart has all of that covered, including printing of digital page prints!

I can now offer more than 40 colours of solid cardstock (which can be purchased in packages or the more popular colours can be bought individually at my workshop, plus specialty paper like glitter paper and glossy chevrons, dots and more.  

I also offer paper packs that include 6 double-sided prints with 6 sheets of coordinating cardstock for just $9.95.   Each month, I will offer scrapbooking and card-making classes that focus on one of these paper packs, and as an added bonus, you will be make a small project at the first workshop you attend each month at no charge!

April's feature is Ivy Lane, a beautiful richly-coloured package that is perfect for the women in your life - think of Mother's Day, birthdays, bridal showers and more.  I'll share more about the class options and cost in a later post.

Although Close to My Heart offers many products, including stamps, jewellry  and other papercrafting items, my main focus will be scrapbooking, with cards on the side (perfect for those leftover bits).

I hope to see you soon!
