It’s Almost Graduation Time!

It’s so exciting – the end of one chapter and the beginning of another!  Times like these are a great time to reflect on the past and capture those memories in a scrapbook.  It also can be a daunting task – and often it’s one that needs to be completed in just a short amount of time.

This is the time of year that I usually receive quite a few phone calls & emails from people that need to get about 18 years of photos in an album…usually in about a month or two.  Facing piles of photos and memorabilia, they’re searching for a simple way to create an album to have on display at parties, for a gift or just for their own enjoyment.  

Well look no further - the search is over!  I am so thrilled to share that CM is here to help!

Announcing the Hats Off Fast2Fabulous Predesigned Pages – available with or without the Ebony Hats Off Album (shown below)


The great thing about the predecorated pages is that you can use them as is – making for a quick & easy project, or use them as a starting point - adding your own touch wherever you want.  Your album – your way!!


Have a lot of photos?  You can purchase additional predecorated refill pages.  Some of them can be used upside down to vary the designs.  You can also add in the Large Single Pocket Pages for memorabilia.  All of the CM pages will work together beautifully! 

The neutral tones used throughout the pages will not overshadow your photos and will compliment any school colors.  I think this would be perfect for any graduation – including high school, 8th grade & Kindergarten!

You can view what each predesigned page looks like by clicking here.

To thank you for shopping with me in April I’d like to send to you a custom embellishment that will coordinate with the artwork on the Hats Off Predesigned Pages.

I will send one embellishment for each Hats Off Album and/or set of pages that is ordered in April via my Advisor Link.


If you prefer different colors and email me shortly after placing your order (within a day or two, please) I’m happy to customize this for you.  Just let me know what colors you’d like substituted for the white, grey and black pieces.


If I do not hear from you I’ll send the embellishment as shown in the photos to the address your CM order was shipped to. 

I expect to begin mailing the embellishments mid-month.

Thanks for helping me do what I love!

Oh, Canada!

We are one step closer to CM being open throughout all of Canada!


CM recently sent via an email to all Advisors with information about the launch of as the place to go to for updates & information regarding CM opening up for business in Canada.  When visiting the site, be sure to click on the “Stay in Touch” button so you can get the updates emailed to you as CM waits to secure permissions from the Canadian Competition Bureau and Provinces.  CM is asking any current Canadian Advisors with ties to American Advisors to select a new Canadian upline by May 1st.  It’s sad to see the end of cross-border CM teams but this will be better in the long run given all price discrepancies, the need for separate marketing materials, etc.  

You can read the entire email here.
