The new December Constant Campaign was announced a few hours after I sent out my customer newsletter. Beginning December 2, at 9 am. (MST) on all CTMH websites, there will be a holiday clearance sale. This means you can go to my website at and order remaining retired stamp set, papers, accessories, some up to 80% off. I believe there is a limit of 5 of each item in order to make ordering run more smoothly. I will try to send a customer newsletter with a link to the list of items available. You may not combine these items with regularly priced items on one order and as was mentioned before, a limit 5 of each item is allowed per order. Please call me at (801)942-3645 if you have questions.

December Card Workshop

These cards were inspired by another CTMH consultant, Vicki Wizniuk. I changed most of them but the basic card design is the same. This month i want to show how you can use the same design either for cards or a scrapbook layout and depending on the paper and stamps chosen, they can all look special!
Dates of the card classes are this Thursday, December 3 from 7-9 pm., Friday, December 11 from 9:00-11:30 a.m. and Saturday, December 12 from noon-2 pm. Please let me know if you'd like to attend. Cost of workshop is $20 for 10 cards and envelopes. Please call me at (801)942-3645 or email me at I'm going to apologize now--one of the cards is upside down and the other sideways. Anyway, you get the idea! Have a great day.

October Scrapbook Workshop

I'm Twitterpated!! that's the name of the new paper packet we'll be using this month.

Thursday, October 1 from 7-9 p.m.
Friday, October 2 from 9:30 a.m.-noon
Saturday, October 3 from noon-2 p.m.

With the new fall catalog (available now!), we have a great new choice!! You can continue with the old style kit for $35. OR if you'd rather, we have a new kit bundle for each workshop which includes the brochure, paper packet, 1 full size accessory (it varies, this time it's the chocolate ribbon rounds) and a "B" size stamp set. The stamp set is sold exclusively in the bundle. If you would like to see a photo of the set, please email me and I'll send a picture (it's really cute and contains mushrooms, a hedgehog, a tree branch and a few sentiments. This bundle also costs $35 and I'll offer an additional embellishment kit containing our new assortment of chocolate brads, dimensional elements for an additional $15. You'll need to bring your hemp from last month and brads if you choose not to order the embellishment kit. Also, please bring your adhesive and paper trimmer.

Hey There Cupcake Workshop

Special thanks to all my sweet consultants who met the challenge of selling $100 each month for the 2nd quarter of the year and to my wonderful customers who purchased $100 in product for the month of June. I love you all!!

Here are photos of the projects we made (especially for those of you unable to attend). If you have questions, please let me know. We made a 2-page layout and 4 cards. Inside your packets you will find 2 additional patterns, one for a favor box (you'll find two pieces of patterned paper with shapes traced for this box and 2 for the card holder) and you'll find a pattern for a cupcake card holder. That pattern on the front will hold 3x3 cards but since we made standard sized cards, I enlarged it for you to fit them. You'll also find a blue paper bag to complete your card holder. Again, any questions, call me at 801-942-3645 or email me!

July Scrapbook Workshop

Our July Workshop features the fun new Tinkerin' Papers, Stickease, Badge Buttons and Summer Carnival Brads. You'll receive your own personal supply of each of these including a full color brochure to help you assemble these adorable layouts. I personally changed the bonus layouts to more closely match my needs (for example, check out my daughter's homecoming pictures!!)

Dates of the workshop will be Saturday, June 27th from noon-2 pm., Wednesday, July 8th from 9:30-noon and Thursday, July 9th from 7-9 p.m.
For the main layout we'll be assembling, you'll need pictures in these sizes:
(5) 3 1/2" x5" or a combination (for example, on my left layout, I chose to use a 5x7 vertical instead of (2) 3 1/2" x 5" photos.)
Cost is $35 (covers the $30 in supplies and $5 shipping and tax). You'll need to bring your adhesive, paper trimmers and piercers, scissors. Please call me at (801)942-3645 or email me to reserve your spot.
