Close to my heart

indepentdent Counsultant


My name is Melanie Smithson.  I first became an Independent Consultant for Close To My Heart in 1996 when I lived in Mesa Arizona.  It started with my love of making cards and crafts.  I truly enjoyed the many friends scrapbooking and stamping has been able to help me develop over the years.  After moving to California, I took a rest from being a consultant and joined a local group of ladies like myself that loved to get together monthly, create, laugh and get away for some "just us girls" time.  I decided to get back into the consultant side of things and became once more a Close To My Heart Independent Consultant.  With over seventeen years of experience stamping, crafting and scrapbooking, I still learn new things each month.  That's what keeps this hobby so fun. 

Close To My Heart is a company dedicated to helping you creatively preserve your precious memories.  From the best quality rubber stamps, scrapbook products and paper craft, Close To My Heart truly has something for everyone.

If you are not already in love with Close To My Heart exclusive acrylic stamp designs, coordinating scrapbooking and cardstock paper, ink pads and more, you soon will be.  Come and see yourself at one of our Scrapbook Club nights or open parties in your area.  In fact, if you are interested in hosing a party, the hostess gifts reward you well for sharing fun with others.  The CTMH Catalog has great scrapbooking kits that come complete with everything you need for projects as well as the individual items available for you to mix and match to make that truly original page or project.

Call or email me today with any interest or questions.  I am setting up groups from beginning to advanced and we always love to have a mix of experience at our clubs.  These Scrapbooking Club nights are a great way to relax and have fun.
