CTMH's Annual Convention

It's that awesome time of year again ... CTMH is holding their annual Convention in Dalls, Texas this week. There is so much fantastic stuff to discuss, that I don't know where to start. So we'll start at the beginning, the new Autumn/Winter idea Book pictured above. Packed with tons of new releases, even I can't wait to get my hands on a hard copy. I'll be stalking the mailbox the next few days for my edition.

CTMH introduced a lower priced New Consultant Kit. Now there will be TWO New Consultant Kits offered so team members can choose the option that best meets their needs. In addition to our $99 Master Kit (contents of both pictures above & below), we now have an Essentials Kit (shown above) that is just $49 and is packed with over $125 in products and supplies to help a new Consultant experience creative fun and business success right away.

To sweeten this awesome deal even more, when a new Consultant joins my CTMH team in August, they will receive an exclusive Damask Tote Bag for FREE! This offer has limited availability, so act quickly to ensure you snatch this darling bag (coated-canvas tote that can be slung over the shoulder, across the chest, or worn as a backpack). This offer is good for both the $49 and $99 New Consultant Kits (while supplies last). And yes, this is the same cute bag CTMH gave to Consultants who attended Convention 2012 in Dallas. I'm so jealous!
Offer valid August 1, 2012 – August 31, 2012

Drum roll please ...

A new Cricut® Artiste Collection! Every single element on the cartridge was personally selected and shaped by Jeanette, so it’s a cartridge that really thinks like you do. 

"With 700 images, the cartridge features themed projects, interactive cards, awards and more. From robots and spooks to weddings and Valentines, your cupcake liners, invitations and party favors will coordinate and quickly come together for any celebration!"

UPDATE: Here's a link to the Artiste Collection images ---> Artiste handbook

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Come back tomorrow for more information on the new paper packs, embellishments, Workshop On The Go kits and much, much more!
