ABOUT HER CLOSE TO MY HEART BUSINESS | My love for Close To My Heart began while attending a weekend retreat near Atlantic City, NJ just after completing my son’s scrapbook. It was there that I was introduced to Close To My Hearts My Acylix® alphabet stamp sets. The vendor was sold out of them so I had to place an order for them. During the weekend I decided I would be a hostess so I would earn hostess products, and while traveling home (and flipping through the Idea Book for the 10th time) I decided I wanted to use my prior direct sales experience and become an Independent Sales Consultant.  Seven years later I am hosting my own weekend retreats, a vendor at weekend stamp shows, and hosting workshops in my home. I am an Executive Manager with CTMH and am currently in the final qualifying month to earn a Hawaiian cruise incentive trip, my first of hopefully many more.

ABOUT DENISE | I am mom to one grown son (Brett-27) and one fourth grade son (Ethan 9) and wife to my best friend Ken. We live on a farm in rural Berks County, Pennsylvania where we grow crops and raise beef steer. My first scrapbook was an album for Brett’s 16th birthday…birth to 16 years completed in one month! My how times have changed as I still have not scrapped Ethan’s birth. My personal scrapbooking consists mostly of documenting the everyday happenings of our simple lives…and LOTS of mini books and home décor projects too.

In early October I will be the Close To My Heart vendor at the Crop for A Cure weekend retreat in Reading PA. From now until September 30th I will be donating 15% of all sales to Pam’s L’il Angels, a participant group in the Boyertown Relay for Life (American Cancer Society). Please feel free to visit my website sanner.myctmh.com or email me sannerfarm@aol.com directly to place an order to help raise the much needed funds to help find a cure.

In honor of National Stamping Month the Pair-A-Phrase {double} stamp set is available FREE with any $75.00 purchase until September 30th.

If you are interested in being on Denise’s email list for monthly updates for future promotions (and giveaways) send her an email.

      HaHa Tammy! Funny thing is Brett thinks I scrapbook Ethan’s things all the time. I love that even at 27 years old he still looks back through his book. We were looking at it last night…my “style” sure has changed over the years!

      Denise Sanner said…

      Thanks Kim! This is just one of many bonuses to being a CTMH consultant. I am hoping to treat my husband to the cruise as a reward for all he does for our family. Being a farmer is a 24/7 365 job…I can’t wait to relax by his side on that cruise ship!

    Fantastic kit and even more beautiful that purchasing it helps a great cause!!!

      Denise Sanner said…

      It is such a great cause. The twin sisters that started this crop lost their mom to breast cancer at a young age. This is the 11th year for their event. Later today I am going to my aunt’s home to work with her grandchildren on a slideshow. My aunt is loosing her fight to cancer right now. It is so sad. Every penny raised helps get us closer to finding a cure.

    When I started scrapbooking, CTMH was the only company I used. I had a wonderful rep from Washington State who helped me….about 15 years ago. She gave me my start. Fond memories…wooden stamps I still use, beautiful leather albums for my grandchildren’s baby books. Love the Halloween set. Thanks for the opportunity.

    This looks like an awesome bundle of fun. I enjoyed reading Denise’s story. Direct sales is not always easy, but it really helps when you absolutely love what you represent and can demo via a class. Great product.

    • ….
      Denise Sanner said…

      Thanks Barb. Ali always tells us that scrapbooking is all about “telling our story”. I have been in direct sales (Longaberger since 1989, in addition to CTMH) for many years. It can be difficult…but with anything in life you get out of it what you put into it. There are so many “jobs” that no matter what you do you still get paid the same amount. With direct sales you have so much control over your schedule and your paycheck. The opportunity is open to everyone…for only $99 you can start your own business with over $280 in products. There is no losing for trying!
