March Special-This is the month to Become a Consultant

CTMH has announced that our March promotion is an AMAZING sign-up special.   Everyone who signs up as a consultant between March 1st & 31st can choose to receive the Art Philosophy Cricut Collection OR $100 in select product credit for FREE!!!!!!   The kit alone is a steal - just $99 for just under $300 in product!  But with this Bonus offer - there is simply no reason to pass up on this deal!! 

Here are some frequently asked questions about the promotion:

Campaign Basics
1.What are the campaign details?

Dates: March 1, 2012 (9:00 am (MST) – March 31, 2012 (11:59 pm MDT)
Featured Products: Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection OR $100 Select Product Credit
For New Consultants: New Consultants who join Close To My Heart in March will receive a FREE Cricut® Art Philosophy collection!
Notes: New Consultants may alternately choose to receive $100 in select product credit (SPC) instead.

Campaign Item Information
2.What is included in the Cricut® Art Philosophy collection?

The Cricut® Art Philosophy collection includes the exclusive Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge, three coordinating My Acrylix® D-size stamp sets, and three 9" × 12" sheets of coordinating Dimensional Elements shapes. The collection retails for $99 and is valued at over $124—so, “free” is a super deal for new Consultants! With 700 cartridge images, including cards, boxes, and 3-D flowers and more, the creative possibilities are endless!

Ordering, Shipping & Tax
3.Will tax be charged on the free Cricut® collection?

4.Will shipping/handling be charged on this promotion?
There is no additional shipping/handling fee for the Cricut collection. The shipping/handling fee for the New Consultant Kit is as follows:
Canada: $25.00
(The shipping price remains the same regardless of how many add-on collections are included with the kit).

If you choose $100 Select Product Credit - your credit redemption is done at a later date and tax & shipping charges may apply. 

5.How does a new Consultant order the collection?

During the online enrollment process, the new Consultant will be asked if they would like to add the Cricut® Art Philosophy collection to their New Consultant Kit or, if they already have a collection, if they would prefer $100 in select product credit. They simply indicate their choice during sign-up. Their collection will be shipped with their kit. New Consultants that already have a collection and, thus, choose the select product credit, will have the select product credit added to their account once their enrollment is approved.

6.What items are included in the select product credit offerings if I choose SPC instead of the Cricut Collection?

Eligible products include:
•My Acrylix® Stamp Sets including customized K-size and E-size stamps (Stamp of the Month stamps are not included)
•My Acrylix® Blocks including the My Acrylix® Block Starter Kit
•Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pads
•Archival Black Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pads
•Exclusive Inks® Markers
•Exclusive Inks® Re-inkers
•My Reflections® Paper Packets
•My Stickease® Assortments
•Complements Embellishments
•Workshops on the Go™ Kits
•Studio J® Memberships
•Studio J® 5-Packs
•All Cardstock Packs
•Select Supply Items

7.  Is this offer available while supplies last?

The offer to sign up as a new Consultant to receive a special promotion along with the new Consultant kit is valid through March 31, 2012. However, the contents of the New Consultant Kit may be subject to change, based on inventory availability of kit items at the time of enrollment. Additionally, while we anticipate sufficient Cricut® Art Philosophy Collections to fulfill demand of this exciting promotion during the promotion dates, if demand should outstrip supply, Close To My Heart reserves the right to backorder the collection and fulfill it separately from the shipment of the New Consultant Kit.

8.  If I choose the Select Product Credit option, will there be an expiration date for that credit?

Yes. Select product credit expires on December 31 the year after it was earned. So for Consultants who choose the $100 SPC for this promotion, it will expire on December 31, 2013, if unused.

9.  If I am resigning up to be a Consultant again, will I get this special offer?

Yes. If you have been a Consultant before, left the company, and are now re-signing up during the month of March, you will be eligible to receive the Cricut® Art Philosophy collection or $100 in select product credit for free.

Free Studio J Layouts in January

January is free layout month for Studio J® members! For every 9 custom-printed Studio J layouts you buy, you’ll receive the 10th layout free. To receive the discount, just add 10 or more layouts to your cart. You’ll see a discount reflected in your order total. And you can totally take advantage of this promotion by ordering in multiples of 10. Buy 9, get 1 free. Buy 18, get 2 free. Buy 27, get 3 free. And so on! If you’re not a member yet, now’s a great time to join!
 Why should I use Studio J?

With the popularity and convenience of digital cameras, people take more photos than ever before. Unfortunately, many of those photos remain lost in cyberspace, tucked quietly away on a hard drive where no one ever sees them. Time to take those photos from the computer to the coffee table for all to enjoy!

One option is to pick your favorite photos and print them in a 4" × 6" size, then put them in photo albums. It’s a quick and easy way to put your photos on display, but there is one drawback—the stories behind the photos are lost unless you write them down. Even the most unforgettable moments lose some of their vibrancy over time.

That’s where scrapbooking comes in. Whenever you pair your photos with journaling—bringing together words and pictures—that’s scrapbooking in its most basic form. Scrapbooking helps you capture life’s moments, both big and small, so that you and your loved ones can enjoy them again and again.

For years, Close To My Heart’s classic scrapbooking products have helped you get your shoeboxes full of printed photos out of the basement and into scrapbooks where they’ll be seen and enjoyed.
Now Close To My Heart brings you Studio J®, online design software that lets you skip the extra step of printing your photos before you scrapbook them. With Studio J, you create digital scrapbook pages that are then printed and delivered to your door, ready to slip into your classic 12" × 12" scrapbook albums.

You’ll love the ease and convenience of studio scrapbooking. And if you decide to become a Studio J member, you’ll love the way each custom-printed layout you purchase comes with free JPG files of the layout—one high-resolution version for archiving or printing more copies, and one web-ready version for you to email to your loved ones, upload to your blog, or post to Facebook. Plus, as a member, you also get free shipping once a month, and all of your layouts at half price! It makes sharing your photos—and your stories—easier and more affordable than ever!
 To sum it up, Studio J Members get:
  • 50% off layouts
  • Free monthly shipment
  • Members-Only Templates and Kits
  • Free JPEG files
  • Free Page Protectors
  • Special Members-Only promotions like this one 
  • Give Studio J a Try---there’s no cost until you place your order. Upload some of your digital photos and find out how quickly and easily you can create a finished scrapbook layout, preserving not only your pictures but the all-important stories behind them! If you like it, you can either order your layouts at full price or purchase a Membership for 3 months or 1 year, or purchase a 5 pack that includes 5 layouts, shipping, and page protectors
