Birthday Card Workshop

Here are some of the cards I have available for my upcoming Card Workshop. The green one is a copy of a card Kim made. The one using Perfect Day is a copy of a card by Amanda Desjardins. The other 2 are my own idea I swear!

As you can tell this workshop is going to use up a lot of extra paper and accents I have taking up space!

Whoooo Loves You?

Here's a simple card I did in my technique club this month using the masking technique. Pretty simple technique really but fun to do. Take your image and stamp it on a scrap piece of paper (like copy paper), and cut it out. This will be your mask. I like to use our Hermafix adhesive, which is temporary, to hold the mask in place as I work. You can cut a mask of the whole image which would allow you to give depth to your project - because you can put something in front or behind or you can cut specific areas out of your piece like I did here - I cut the chest part out and the feet so that I could have different colors on the body of the owl and then put the branch under the feet. Post a card you've done using the masking technique!

A few cards

Here are a few card that I have done lately. A few I have received inspirations from fellow CTMH consultants on their blogs. Sorry my pictures are not very good. My scanner won't work with my new computer.

Weekly Wisdom

Hi Everyone!
It's little late this week, but here is our "weekly" wisdom this time instead of our "Wednesday's" Wisdom! :)

The brand new consultant locator went live this week! Woohoo!! It's so much nicer than the old one and I'm excited that new customers can find us easier now. Everyone who is a supervisor and above is automatically added to the locator system. If you are not a supervisor, you have to opt-in and choose to be in the system. DO IT!!! It can only help your business. Here's how to opt-in (or opt out if you are a supervisor and above and don't want referrals): log in to the corporate website and click on Managing Your Business > Personal Business Assistant. Below your main and shipping addresses in the Contact Information section is a checkbox for Consultant Locator visibility.

Registration for Leadership conference starts on Monday for everyone who is a manager and above (
Supervisors can register on Monday, April 20, space permitting). I can't tell you how excited I am about the new products and programs that will be released at Leadership! It is going to be fabulous and I promise you are going to want to be there! I wish I could tell you all the reasons why. :) But trust, want to be there! Only 300 people can go, so register right away. There are still hotel rooms available at the Marriott right next door to the convention hotel and if you are looking for roommates, post it to the blog and we can coordinate. :) You need to come to leadership!!
