Top 12 Reasons to Join Close to My Heart - Part 2

If you missed Part 1 (reasons 1-5), head over HERE - there is some good info there!

6) Free Personalized Shopping Website for your customers! 
            The FREE website took 10 minutes to set up - the longest part was finding a photo of myself that I liked.  They make it so easy with a video to guide you.  And the website is very professional looking - they do all the maintenance for it!

7) Gathering and Workshop Instructions
             Close to My Heart provides you with exact instructions on how to make cards and layouts for workshops that are cute and economical for you, the consultant.  They specify exactly what products you need, including some of the handy bulk paper you can buy, provide a sketch and color sample and then step by step instructions.  You don't have to come up with all the designs alone.  This means you can get started having classes right away!

8) Active Consulant Bulletin Board
              Close to My Heart supports an active consultant bulletin board where consultants help one another, provide creative samples and templates for cutting these samples, and general help of any kind you may need.  The board moves at a nice pace and is active (I'd tell you if it was a ghost town - it's NOT).  So you can be in community with fellow consultants.

9) Incentive Trips
             Each year, based on your sales and/or recruiting efforts, you can win a trip for two to a fun location.  Past locations have included a cruise of the Carribean and a trip to Hawaii.  This year's trip is to Hawaii and the Disney Aulani resort and there's still time to qualify!

10) Convention
             Close to My Heart hosts a yearly convention, where the new catalog is revealed and consultants are taught about the new product and new techniques.

11) No Credit Card Processing Fees!

12) Workshops on the Go kits
       These kits are pre-packaged with exclusive stamp sets using the current set of papers.  You can use these kits to host classes in your home.  Each kit comes with a full color set of instructions to make layouts and/or cards. In addition, the kit usually requires some tools which may be good add-on items for your classes.  These kits are beautiful!

And a bonus reason:

13) Stamp of the Month and other Specials
        Close to My Heart has a stamp of the month and also many other specials they promote through the month, keeping things fresh.

If you love buying your scrapbooking and cardmaking products at a discount, this is the way to go.  No matter what level of consultant you are, there is a discount.  And the quarterly minimums are do-able.

  5. Good luck! I'm hoping some day to be able to invest in the CTMH exclusive cricut cartridges (hopefully before they are retired - lol).

  6. Awesome post! I am a Close To My Heart consultant and totally agree with all 12 of your reasons to join.!!.

  7. Dr. Checkup would nicely fill a void in my cartridge collection. Good luck with CTMH. Nice people, nice products!

  8. Should this get added to my new collection of cartridges for cricut, my children will love the notes from the tooth fairy etc... . I love the colletion of coupons all in one place. You are in your own place in my bookmarker for sure. Will be following for years to come.

  9. Dr. Checkup cartridge definitely has my curiosity peaked as I am a medical transcriptionist. Would live to someday own one or some of the CTMH items.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    a good platform.
