Just a few more days!!!

The new CM is launching soon and I can't wait to sign up - hard to believe that I am going on my 13th year as a consultant! In the new world I will be called an "Advisor" and the business is easier than it has ever been before. For $49 a year advisors will get a personal account and a URL to share with customers via email, social media, their blog or website. In addition to their own account, they will receive a discount on products (anywhere from 10% to 40%), plus commissions on advisors on their team) based on their balance of their personal account.

There are NO MINIMUMS and NO STARTUP KIT TO BUY so the business can be whatever the advisor wants it to be - workshop based, personal use only, home class based, and/or a team of advisors with a goal of growing their businesses and sharing the mission of preserving memories.

In terms of products, there will be the best of everything I have loved from Creative Memories and Ahni and Zoe over the years - high quality bookcloth coversets (Chocolate, Cobalt, Ebony and Ruby), 10 Fast2Fabulous albums (12X12), 3 Fast2Fabulous albums (8X8), White, Spargo and Natural Refill pages in 12X12 and 8X8, 4 new paper packs, a 9" trimmer, tape runners and refills and pens.

In the future, the company is looking into adding to the line with a few new cutting tools and slide-in pages (vertical, horizontal and full page.) They have been VERY accommodating and have asked for our input all along the way so I am very encouraged about this new owner! Website link coming soon!

Artwork Sale at Panstoria!

There is a 20% off artwork sale going on now at Panstoria - it lasts until October 14th and the prices are already marked down (you don't need a code!)

When you buy art, you will download it to your computer, and then within Artisan's Welcome page, click on "Import Content" to bring it into your software.

Your next step is to activate it - when you select "Manage Content" from the Welcome page there will be a button called "Activation Codes" - these alphnumeric codes come with your purchase. You can enter them, one line at a time, to unlock your artwork!

Here is a screen shot:

Let's Talk Fonts!

Let's Talk Fonts!

There are so many free fonts available for download on the Internet (Google's my best friend!) and that has made for some of my favorite digital scrapbook pages in Artisan (formerly Creative Memories' Storybook Creator.) When you download a free font, extract it and then copy it into your Windows "font" folder, it immediately shows up as one of your choices in Artisan for use in your projects. Check out some pages I have made recently using some of these free fonts I have found (in case you are wondering, they are "Aerosmith", Gracey's Curse" and "Blaster Eternal.") So much fun to have options like $39.95 Artisan is a great value. You can learn more about it and download it right here from my blog if you click on the banner....
