Their products and lessons have helped me develop my cardmaking -- my favorite hobby. And, I have made many new friends through gatherings and workshops using CTMH products.
When I enrolled in CTMH, there were two other similar companies for us papercrafters -- Creative Memories and Stampin' Up. Woodblock stamping just wasn't "my thing" so I ruled out SU, as that sort of stamping is their strength and is not mine. And my dearest friend I met through crafting, Susan Bermudez, was a CM Consultant; we supported each other in our businesses, and often crafted and demo'd together.
In April of this year, surprising news rippled through the crafting community: Creative Memories had filed for bankruptcy for the second time in five years. The company hoped to reorganize into a more streamlined company, but made it clear that they would be abandoning their most popular lines of albums and page protectors. This was the heart-and-soul of their memory-keeping business to most crafters, and it was devastating to the CM Consultants who built their business on this line.
Recently, Creative Memories unveiled their new name (Ahni & Zoe) and product line. Gone are paper, stickers and tools but most significantly, the popular album coversets and refills are gone. From what I have heard from former CM consultants, there is disappointment.
"A door has closed for me," said one.
"...and I am looking for a new place to
build my business doing what I love."
Look no farther than Close To My Heart.
First, to serve those who have built their albums using Creative Memories' unique strap-based albums, CTMH will launch a new page protector specially designed to meet the needs of the clients of the former pre-"A & Z" CM album.
On February 1st, you will be able to purchase 25 side loading memory protectors for $19.95! Perfect for your strap designed albums but with the quality and thickness of a CTMH memory protector -- considered TOPS in the industry! And the new page protectors are an addition to, not a replacement of, the post-bound page protectors for which CTMH is famous. They're an industry BEST!
In addition, Close To My Heart will simultaneously introduce a new product line consisting of a variety of 8 designs for Picture My Life Scrapbooking Program (sample shown below).
