More About Me

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by.  My name is Lisa Sargent, and I am a Close To My Heart consultant in Newcastle, Washington.  

I've been making cards since 2000; I joined Close To My Heart in 2004 after seeing it at a craft show and because I loved the product.  Close To My Heart has been around for 35 years and I love how gorgeous their stamps and papers are...and that they put a lot of thought into every one of their products.  About a year after I started making cards, I told someone that "I think this is what I was supposed to do."  I love being able to connect with people, especially through the mail, since hardly anyone sends actual mail any more.  It's wonderful when you can "do what you love and love what you do."  Not everyone is so fortunate as I am.  Let me show you how to make beautiful cards and scrapbook pages!

My scrapbooking has been sporadic.  I scrapbooked in high school (that means, ages ago) and again after the kids were first born.  I like making mini-scrapbooks for friends and family.  I have a few "big" scrapbooks, but find them a bit overwhelming.  Mini-scrapbooks are more my style.  And I love the Stacy Julian program, Story By Stacy, which guides you through storytelling, but in manageable, bite-sized pieces.

You can reach me at lisa@lisasargent.NET or by telephone at 425.941.3135 if you have questions.  

I also can come to your house and share scrapbooking and stamping (and Close To My Heart) with you and your friends.  Hostesses earn free goodies, so that's great!  If you're thinking about becoming a consultant, I can answer questions about that, too.  It's all good.  :)

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
