“I’ve known Cindy for many years (at least 12) as a Close to My Heart customer and friend. She is so creative, that is what drew me to her CTMH Club classes. She designs awesome scrapbook pages, I am always excited to go to our monthly Club night. Cindy throws awesome events, every detail is planned out carefully. A few games, some door prizes, layout contest, a lot of food, and a great day of scrapbooking with everything planned to perfection. I have always looked forward to Cindy’s events. I have attended retreats that Cindy has arranged through The Covered Bridge Inn. The retreats are as meticulously planned as her events - just more fun and more cropping days! It is evident that Cindy loves her job as a Close To My Heart Consultant, she is the best!” karenparker

“Cindy Jackson is the most creative person I have ever known. She takes her passion for scrapbooking and inspires her customers to use their tools and supplies in new ways to document their memories. Simply stated, Cindy is an inspiration.”

- Lisa Stanford, Blackwell, Texas

“When I came to you, I had no clue what I was doing. You take the time to teach a person who has no clue. And if you are asked the same question over again , you are very patient and will show how it's done. That is what I look for when learning something new. Thank you.”

- Joyce Rodgers

Monthly Scrapbook Classes

I’d love to invite you to join me at my monthly scrapbook classes, where we create 8 - 12”x12” scrapbook pages. I walk everyone through cutting their papers, assembling and creating their pages, step-by-step, and you will go home with 8 beautiful, completed pages to put your most treasured family photos and memories on. In these 3 hour classes, we create with a different themed paper kit each month. You will learn different tips and techniques every time. I have been teaching monthly scrapbook classes for over 20 years and I’d love for you to join me, whether you want to participate in person OR Online! Contact me today for more information!


“When I first started scrapping it was with a different company. I got frustrated and quit. Then in 2007 I started with Cindy and CTMH at her class in Hamilton. That class stopped meeting in 2013. I was so disappointed but Cindy allowed me to continue ordering the monthly class materials and she would send me the layouts via email until I realized that I was missing the relationship with other scrapping ladies. I now attend her classes in Stephenville each month, as well as retreats, crops, and anything else she offers! I have to drive from Hamilton to Stephenville but Cindy's classes are worth it!”



By participating (in person or Online) in my monthly scrapbook classes, you will complete eight - 12 x 12 scrapbook pages a month or 96 pages in a year! This is at least two full scrapbooks! All by setting aside one evening a month! My customers tell me that this is definitely more than they’d ever get done on their own.

I also offer weekend retreats and crop days, where you can come and complete your pages by adding photos and journaling to your beautiful layouts.


I’d love for you to join my Close to My Heart VIP Customer group! A place where my fun paper-crafting friends will receive VIP treatment on everything Close To My Heart! - Be the first to learn about my classes and events, get creative ideas, tips and techniques! I also offer specials, promotions and even some exclusive giveaways!

Please join us! It is a wonderful community of fellow crafters and scrapbookers!

My customers are truly Close to My Heart!
