Well I did it! I finally bit the bullet and signed up to be a Close To My Heart consultant. I've been considering this for over 3 years, but was waiting for the right time, the right special, the money, etc. I even signed up for my personal website: www.amysdigiscraps.myctmh.com
The sign up deal they have going right now is PHENOMENAL! To sign up as a consultant is $99 and you get the consultant kit and you have add on options that cost a little more. But for the month of March 2012, when you sign up you can get the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge for FREE - yes FREE! If you already have the cartridge, no worries, you can choose to receive a $100 credit instead (and you don't have to use it right away).
The Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge is $99 on its own and comes with 3 D stamp sets and 3 sheets of embellishments, so this is a great deal.
If you want the cartridge but do not want to sell anything - that's okay! You can sign up, get the welcome kit and the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and do nothing. No big deal. You can deactivate if you prefer or just let your membership lapse after a while. But the great thing is that for the next three months, anything you order for yourself you can get for the consultant pricing.
There are additional details regarding staying active. If you are interested, just leave a comment with your question or email and I'll contact you.
If you would like to sign up, please consider me as your upline. My website is www.amysdigiscraps.myctmh.com. If you sign up under me, you can be as active as you want - whether you want to make this a business or just to get the cartridge, it's your choice!
