We couldn’t be more excited to get to see many of you there and for the opportunity to share some new products and ideas for the upcoming year!

A can’t-miss two-day event, Convention is packed with incredible business classes and speakers, creative sessions, new product demonstrations, trainings, and so much more. Every part of this event is designed to help you create the success you want in every area of your Close To My Heart business. You will leave with tons of great ideas, inspiration, and motivation to take your craft, your team, and your business to new heights! We want you to succeed!

Best of all, at Convention you’ll connect with seasoned sales veterans and passionate crafters who will share imaginative trade secrets and cutting-edge techniques in an atmosphere of fun and friendship. The relationships and memories forged and reinforced are bound to be among the greatest rewards you’ll bring home.

One of this year’s special guests is none other than our good friend, Stacy Julian. Watch the video below for a sneak into something new you can expect.

Convention is the biggest party Close To My Heart hosts every year. We get tons of Consultants together in one location to do what we love most—crafting and talking about it! But, really, there is so much more to Convention than that. Underneath all of the beautiful paper and trim, the purpose of Convention is to help you grow as an individual and as a Consultant.

As you gear up for Convention, we encourage you to come with some in mind. Time will fly by once we’re there and, before you know it, it will be over and you will have more memories to scrapbook. Make the most of your Convention experience by thinking ahead of what you wish to get out of it. (What do you want to achieve? Who do you want to meet? What do you hope to learn?)

The Close To My Heart Convention is the best place to fuel your passion, spark your creativity, and ignite your business! If you haven’t signed up yet, what are you waiting for? Come celebrate and create with us by registering today, while you still can!

From Jill: Album Retreat Awesomeness

Hi! Jill Broadbent here to share the highlights of one of my favorite weekends of the year—Album Retreat! We held another amazing Album Retreat in Salt Lake City this past weekend. With 200 creative Consultants, we got comfy-cozy and created 12 pages in just two and a half days! The album was themed to tell important stories and let the attendees dig deep to document moments from their life. From birth to bucket lists, we covered every milestone along the way. I love the process of telling stories and tying them together with beautiful products and techniques. Check out our Instagram video for a quick look at the album we created!

We were also inspired by a message of storytelling from Stacy Julian. We love when she comes to share her passion and inspire us to be better keepers of our family history.

We loved Album Retreat! #ctmh #closetomyheart #ctmhalbumretreat2015 #stacyjulian

Another highlight was the photo bus! Consultants lined up for a turn to load into the back of a VW bus that was decked out as a photo booth. Can you tell we had a lot of fun with it? 🙂

Honestly, my favorite part each and every time we host an Album Retreat is seeing the satisfaction from Consultants as they finish page after page and leave with an album ready to share with those they love. The pages are beautiful because we work hard to share fresh techniques. What makes them masterpieces, though, are the personal photographs and journaling.

We had many generous hearts at the Album Retreat, too. As we frequently do, we held an auction at the event as a fun way to raise money for Operation Smile. After auctioning off several pieces of beautiful artwork, we raised over $3,000—enough for 12 smiles! We feel so blessed to be associated with this important charity, and we are grateful for the kindness of those who donated their works of art as well as those who purchased it—all for the sake of changing the life of a child.

If you’ve ever wondered about attending Album Retreat, I can promise you it is well worth the investment. But, don’t take my word for it! Here are a few social media posts from some of our attendees!
