Showcase = NEW PRODUCTS!

Welcome everyone – “old” & new!  I am going to have some special offers for orders placed on my CM website in September!  Also for those that order a Cricut Expressions 2 in October!

Stay tuned for details!

I’m chatting with friends who are at Showcase (CM’s national convention) and getting the scoop from all of my sources about the new products that will be available next month.  When I first posted the products hadn’t even been announced yet but I was so happy to be able to post about them and even include pic or two!  I’ll continue to update this post with info as it becomes available!

CHECK BACK & Refresh often

Think Pink! Breast Cancer Awareness Collection - Album, papers, embellishments, ribbon maker/punch.  A portion of the proceeds from the new Think Pink Collection will go toward supporting breast cancer research.
Reflections Collection - Albums, Power Palette w/paper, stickers & paper embellishments, digital content, Every Day Displays, Photo Organizing boxes & more!
Gratitude Collection - and other items in the Nancy O'Dell collection (I rolled my eyes at first, too, but I was wrong!  She's all about creating a legacy & teaching the movie stars in Hollywood how to scrapbook! Really!

***Shameless Upline Plug:***

My Upline – Amy – on the bottom right in the picture below.  She’s on stage now!  She’s been testing the new Party Plan…details to come soon in a separate post)


Digital info & products below the Traditional stuff!

Here’s the info I have so far!

Cricut information to be announced around 1:30 (MN time?) Saturday afternoon!

Changes to the Party Plan & Hostess rewards -

We’ll have 4 party formats - Organize, Displays, Albums, and Create It Your Way.  Something for just about everyone and more choices for those who like to host multiple times!!  The new catalog will include these categories for easy shopping!

Remember – I am happy to offer catalog and virtual parties for friends that are not nearby or able to have an in-home event!!

Hostess rewards will be on a tiered scale with the top level earning 20% of party sales!!

New Rewards Club! 


This will be a chance for me to give back to my customers who helped make CM their “favorite” brand and me their favorite CM Consultant! 

Annual membership fee of $39.  Beginning in September with a bonus credit of an additional $10 for the month!!

One of the first thing you’ll receive when you enroll is an instant sign up reward of $10 in Club credit to be applied to your first order.  Club customers receive a 15% credit on purchases & EXCLUSIVE product.  I think the first gift will be a Halloween Club Pack! Maybe this:


Yay! I love taking care of my customers – they are the of my business!!!

See the bottom of this post for info geared towards CM Consultants (which we always need more of!) and those that believe in the mission of “Preserving our past, enriching the present & inspiring hope for the future.”


New Tape Runner – easy drop in cartridges & NO MORE THREADING!   (LOL at the video)

Personalized traditional coversets!!  It's the same or similar material that  the hardcover  Storybooks are made with but on a traditional coverset. You can do full photos, artwork, etc.  Absolutely brilliant.

Custom Albums - the BEST in the industry
Full Photo Covers
Custom Templates
Full Custom using SBC or SBCStudio


Digital not your thing but still want to have one of these coversets?  I’m happy to help!  Contact me and I can design it for you, order it and have it shipped to your door!

Create them yourself or with help from your CMC!

Premium Storybooks that lay flat allowing for panoramic photos or great double page spreads (that would be one big page, I guess Smile

CMC Tidbits

Quote from Aleks (the new CM President) addressing the CMCs at Showcase Friday morining:

"Let me share something I've noticed about you since I came her just 6 months ago. YOUR belief in what you do goes deeper than anything I've seen in my 18 years of direct selling. You connect with your customers like no other. You build relationships that go way deeper and learn so much about them."
Someone posted he has made gorgeous scrapbooks...his wife is a children's photographer.

I think he “gets” it!

FlipPal available at a discount – don’t think this is going to be added to our product line but could help you with your business.  It is portable & allows you to scan photos & other items.

Note: none of this has been “officially” released by CM in the US yet – but my sources are pretty reliable!  I’ll correct any incorrect info if needed!


  1. I con't wait. I see some thing i need to buy.
    Thanks for giving us a seek peek

  2. YAY and WOW! Thanks for posting.

  3. what size is the blueprint?? looks like 8 1/2 by 11?

  4. When is the new version of storybook being released?? I can't wait!

  5. The upgrade for SBC+ is due out sometime in September - I'll post when I get a more definite time :)
