From Jeanette: YOU Are MY People!

As many of you know, March is a special time of year around Close To My Heart: It’s my birthday month! Every year, as my birthday approaches, I can’t help but reflect on life. I like to reevaluate how and where I spend my time, and especially with whom. I’m not perfect, but I believe in making every moment count and living life to its fullest, and when I look at the wonderful people who have walked by my side over the past 35 plus years, I am blessed to know that I am doing just that!

You Are My People #ctmh #closetomyheart #jeanettelynton #thesearemypeople #youaremypeople #ctmhconsultants #cutabove #scrapbooking #album #minialbum #memorykeeping #giveaway #birthday #prize #free

Thank you for always asking about me and my family. Thank you for your dedication to this wonderful community that we have created, together. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for believing in me and my vision for Close To My Heart, and for making dreams come true day in and day out. You, my dear Consultants and readers, are MY people! I could not ask for a better group of women to share my life with. I am truly blessed to have you and love you all so much!

For my birthday, I want to celebrate you, the wonderful people in my life. One way I plan on doing this is through the special that we just launched on March 1st, These Are My People. One of my favorite products in this special is the These Are My People Cut Above® kit. (All of the pages that you are seeing today are from this kit, complete with pictures of our wonderful Close To My Heart Consultants! ❤ )

This kit is designed to create a 6″ x 8″ album with an opening page, a closing page, and eight two-page layouts in between, each page aimed at celebrating special relationships. What better product could I ask for to say thank you to all of you?

The beautiful collection of products available through the These Are My People campaign, especially the workshops and the Cut Above® kit, are truly an embodiment of the Close To My Heart mission.

For the next three weeks, until my birthday on the 27th, we will keep track of everyone who purchases one of these Cut Above® kits. At noon (MST) on my birthday, I will pick 4 of you to receive a prize containing an Everyday Life™ album in the color of your choice, one of our journaling pens of your choice, and an additional These Are My People Cut Above®kit. A fifth winner will also be picked for a grand prize. This lucky person will receive the album, pen, and Cut Above kit, as well as a $50 (USD) credit to Persnickety Prints, and a Sticky Boy and Sticky Girl stamp (because they are some of my favorite people, too!)!

You Are My People #ctmh #closetomyheart #jeanettelynton #thesearemypeople #youaremypeople #ctmhconsultants #cutabove #scrapbooking #album #minialbum #memorykeeping #giveaway #birthday #prize #free

My sweet friends, I hope you know that I love you and cherish the moments we get to share together. I encourage you to do your best to live your best life with those who matter most and express your love and gratitude every day. And, if you’re searching for a community of crafters that are more of a family than anything else, you’ve come to the right place and are welcome here.

With all my love,
Jeanette

New Banner Thin Cuts

With Thin Cuts dies on our minds all month long, let’s talk about two of our new comers from the Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog, the Party and Title Banners!

These new die sets are designed to cut the banner shapes you see here as well as score (without cutting!) where the dotted lines are for effortless and accurate folding. Adding a touch of three-dimensional flair to your cards and layouts just got easier!

Use the Party banners to create personalized headings and signs to commemorate any occasion. Take a look at how we incorporated them into these scrapbook pages, one with the straight banner and another with the curved one.

Just like the Party Banners, our Title Banners fold up for a dimensional look, too. With these banners, however, you can also layer multiple segments together to create a longer banner—sized to fit any personalized message!
