About Danielle

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Danielle Benich, and I have been a Close To My Heart Consultant for over fifteen years. My husband and I have two children, a daughter starting college soon and a son starting high school.

I would love to share with you our complete line of quality stamping, scrapbooking, and paper crafting products. Whether you are interested in a home gathering and earning FREE products, placing an order, need the latest Idea Book, attending a workshop, or interested in joining my team and being part of the wonderful Close To My Heart community -- make sure to contact me. There is truly something for everyone. If you are new, learn the basics of stamping and scrapbooking; or if you are already accomplished, learn wonderful new and exciting techniques.

A friend of mine introduced me to Close To My Heart, and I instantly wanted everything in the Idea Book. Starting a family and moving at the time meant not much “fun” money was available. I started being a consultant for the discount and to meet people in our new hometown. Little did I know how much I would enjoy being a consultant, or that I would want to keep growing with Close To My Heart. I was a Featured Consultant in the Spring 2007 Idea Book, I also created the art on pages 80-83 in the Summer 2008 Idea Book, was one of three New Accessories presenters at Leadership 2007, was asked to teach a class (Card Making 101) at our online Training Academy, placed in over fifty contests through Close To My Heart (including 13 firsts!), and I have been honored to teach at several National Conventions (2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2011 & 2012). I LOVE what I do.

In December of 2008, I was diagnosed with a rare lung disease called LAM. It’s been quite a roller coaster ride since then. Thankfully, I am pretty adjusted to what I can and can’t do, and I am grateful to be able to continue as “normal” a life as I can right now. I am blessed with a wonderful supportive family, and I am grateful to be able to continue being a consultant with Close To My Heart. If you’d like to find out more information about LAM, please check out our family website.

Close To My Heart is so fun and rewarding, my circle of friends just keeps growing. The compensation plan fits anyone -- if you just want a great discount for yourself, or work a part-time job for a little extra funds, or start a full-time career -- make sure to find out the fantastic benefits of being a Close To My Heart consultant.
