FEBRUARY Classes, Specials and More!


Hello Friends~

Happy New Year!!!  Here we are, the beginning of another year!  I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday season.  Today, it's FINALLY snowing here in Colorado, at least where I am.  I hope you have stayed warm today! We haven't had much snow at all this season, only a few dustings of snow.  Yesterday, we were out watering the trees because it has been so dry...scary dry! Bring on the SNOW!!!

This photo is another team photo we took last summer in the lobby of the CTMH Home Office, I loved the custom wallpaper along the staircase.  Can you name the stamp set it resembles???

Several products sold out during the last month of the Holiday Expressions in December, which was my feeling when I sent out December's newsletter, that's why I included January's classes in last months newsletter.  Thankfully, many of you had the Beary Christmas products already ordered, and planned to attend classes this month, or the All Day Crop this weekend.  I have ONE SPACE left for the crop if you'd like to join us! See last months newsletter for details.

With the new year, comes a new Seasonal Expressions!  If you've already placed an online order, one was automatically added to your shipment.  If you paid for shipping with your annual subscription with me, you should have already received it...I mailed them out the first week in January.  If you have a yearly subscription with me, and haven't received yours yet, let's connect!  I have delivered many of them, but if you're still waiting, you can view it online here.

I know you're going to absolutely LOVE several of the special new products you find inside (at least I do!).  There's lots to share this month, so let's get to it.  Read on...

There's still plenty of time to take advantage of January's promotions!  Have you?

You may share this blog post with your friends who love to stamp, scrapbook and paper craft.  I always appreciate your referrals...and the best part is, I will reward you when you do, with a Referral Reward (any ONE item at 22% savings).  I appreciate your continued friendship and support for what I do with CTMH.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

DECEMBER Classes, Specials and More!



Hello Friends~


It's hard to believe, this week is Thanksgiving, Happy Thanksgiving y'all!  I know if you're like me, you need to make the most of your time...so I'm getting December's newsletter out a little early to remind you of fun classes coming up in the next couple of months.  This photo is of my team during our Home Office tour at Convention last June, sharing our Mission at CTMH - "We show you how to celebrate relationships through discovering your creativity, to preserve and share the moments that matter most."  I love the relationships I share with each of you!

One friendly reminder I want to mention, as December comes to an end, so do the products in the Holiday Expressions catalog.  Holiday Expressions is retiring December 31st! Plan ahead and make sure your wish list is checked off.  You'll see the Beary Christmas layouts (at the end of this post) I'm planning to host in January 2018, so if you're interested, you'll need to get your supplies in December.  Out with the old in December, can only mean making room for the new in January!  WooHoo!

Word is out, CTMH is also planning something for Black Friday and Cyber Monday!  When I know, you'll know...watch for details on my Facebook Business Page.  Be sure to LIKE and FOLLOW my business page so you'll be notified too!

Please share this blog post with your friends who love to stamp, scrapbook and paper-craft.  I always appreciate your referrals...and I love to reward you too, with a Referral Reward (any ONE item at 22% savings).  I appreciate your continued friendship and support for what I do with CTMH!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!  Happy Holidays!

Hello Friends~

Here we are, fully into the month of October...how can that be?  At times, my best intentions don't always pan out, I hoped to have this posted before my retreat.

There's lots to talk about during the month of October with CTMH, so let's get right down to business!  Read on for all the juicy details!

Feel free to share this blog post with your friends who LOVE to stamp, scrapbook and paper-craft.  I always appreciate your referrals...and I love to reward you too!  I sincerely thank you for your continued friendship and support...I do appreciate YOU!

You're invited to an "All-You-Can-Create" Card Buffet!  
I will have light refreshments, and even Christmas music to get us in the holiday spirit!  Cards will be a variety of designs including Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Birthdays and Thank Yous.

WHEN: Saturday, November 11th, 2017 @ 10am-12pm  OR  2:30-4:30pm 
(Space is limited, reserve your spot by registering early with payment)

Here's how it works: Come make all the cards you can in a 2-hour session for just $20.  You bring your own adhesives (tape runner with refills, 3D foam tape, glue dots, etc) and a Basic Tool Kit including scissors, paper piercing tool, bone folder, black journaling pen, VersaMat, stamp scrubber and spritz, etc.  All other supplies for cards are provided and pre-cut for you!  Use my ink pads and blocks (you may bring your own blocks for personal use, make sure your blocks are clearly labeled with your initials if you do!)

General rules will be announced at the beginning of each session, be sure to be on time!  
Everyone starts and ends at the same time.  Each card must be completed before moving on to the next card, you cannot take cards home to complete, you only have 2 hours to complete as many cards as you can, and most importantly, you MUST care for my products as if they were your own.
Come join the FUN!
