Mini Album #3 - Baseball with Game On!









This last mini album that I did was for the baseball fan. The front cover has one of my tear bears made from mulberry paper but otherwise the products are all Close To My Heart. The base paper pack is Game On.

Mini Album #2 - Moon Doggie









I got the layout for this album from my friend and upline, Tina Horton. It makes a great vacation album. It uses the 3 ring binder and the Moon Doggie paper pack and Stickease.

Football Mini Album

I love the Close To My Heart 3 Ring Binder (Z1141) mini album! It is perfect for your vacation pictures, your child's sports game, new baby brag book, or to give as a gift! I'm going to post 3 that I have made and this first one is a fav of mine because my son played football and I am going to put his pictures in it. I covered the album with desert sand cardstock and used the "paper leather" technique. The ribbon is Colonial White Grosgrain (Z1102) and the title is stamped with olive ink (Z2137) using the Field Trip (E1013) letter set.

The inside front and back are covered with desert sand cardstock that I random stamped using 1st and 10 (B1189). The base paper pack for the other pages is Game On (X7097B).
I added these Memory Protectors Flip-Flaps (Z4114) so that I could add more pictures to these two pages.If you have any questions about this album just email me and I'll be happy to help you!

Leadership Conference 2009

WOW – that is what I have to say about the Close To My Heart Leadership Conference!! I started Thursday evening with a Create & Take workshop featuring Twitterpated, one of the new Workshops on the Go from the Autumn/Winter Idea Book. I can’t wait for you to see this new fall paper.

In General Session on Saturday morning, Jeanette Lynton shared her vision of what the theme, Own It!, means. She said, “You have the choice to OWN the future of your business. It is YOUR vision, YOUR passion, and YOUR willingness to step outside your comfort zone and dare to own your potential.” The Autumn/Winter Idea Book was passed out after General Session so I settled on the floor in the hallway of the Westin to devour it, …so many great new products and papers!

After a wonderful lunch on Friday and Saturday, I attended business classes to help me build my business. CTMH provides me with so many tools to help me grow and to mentor my team so that we are all successful! I love working for Close To My Heart!!

Finally, on Saturday night I attended our Awards Banquet! My new friend and roomie, Lori Leng from Hendersonville, NC won the Rising Star award and was handed a $1000 check from the owner Jeanette Lynton! Did I mention that I love working for Close To My Heart?

While other companies are floundering in this recession, Close To My Heart is financially sound and stronger than ever! As a matter of fact, CTMH is a debt free company!! There has never been a better time to become part of such an exciting company. Join my team and I will guide and teach you how to meet your goals and be successful with your OWN business. Do you dare to own your potential? Can you imagine turning your scrapbook and stamping passion into a profitable business? Just email me, …dandgblack@embarqmail.com and we will get started today!
