Studio J layouts

Close To My Heart has a special this month for a FREE JPG for trying Studio J, the digital scrapbooking system. I just wanted to share my layout:

This is Katie participating in the Reisterstown Parade last September with her Girl Scout troop.  I have also entered this layout in the CTMH corporate Facebook contest. The layout with the most "likes" wins a prize at the end of July.

Here is another layout of the cousins together at Katie's 9th Birthday party:

Studio J really does make scrapbooking faster and easier. I can get several layouts done at one time. Just love it.

Thanks for looking. Have a great summer and I hope you have some time to craft and create.

Hello Summer Vacation

Finally, the kids are finished with the school activities. It has been a busy few weeks with Lizzie's graduation from Preschool and William's concert and 5th Grade Farewell. Not to mention, I have had a bout of bronchitis that has finally cleared.

Here are some cards I made using the June SOTM Jubiliation:

 I totally CASed one from a great Consultant Vicki W. I loved her design and wanted to see if I could make one for myself. Check out her blog: It is fantastic.

This card is made from a pattern featured from the Mojo Monday blog.

This card was inspired by Jen R and her card swap.

Thanks for looking. Hope everyone has a fabulous summer. Check out my Facebook page. "Like" it to keep up with all the latest info from CTMH.

Exciting times are ahead!!! I can't wait for school to end and the SUMMER vacation to begin. It has been quite a shock to experience such an extreme heat wave this past weekend but better the heat than the cold blizzard. I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather we are having today and for the rest of the week. If only it could be this way for the rest of the summer.

I am happy to announce that I have started a business Facebook page. Please check it out and LIKE it so you can get some inspiration and be the first to know of the Specials CTMH will be offering.

So to celebrate the launch of my new page, and to get everyone to participate in CTMH's FREE FOR ALL Studio J promotion, I have decided to have a CONTEST.

During our Studio J® Free-for-All in June, CTMH is giving everyone a FREE Studio J® JPG file—no purchase required! Simply log on to Studio J®, create a layout, then order one JPG file of your layout. It's as easy as that! Download and save your file so you can post your layout online, email it to family and friends, or print them.

If you have a Studio J® or a MyCTMH® account, just log in and start creating. If you don't have an account, creating one is easy. You can access Studio J® through  my website.

Now, for the contest, when you get your JPG go to my Facebook page and upload your layout.

The person who received the most "likes" for their layout at the end of the contest (now-June 30) will receive any one item of their choice from the Spring/Summer Idea Book at 50% off(excluding shipping and taxes).

So upload those pictures and start creating. If you need any help or would like me to come over and show you how to use Studio J, contact me and I will be more than happy to schedule a private session with you.

Happy Crafting,

Free For All

June CC
During our Studio J® Free-for-All in June, we're giving everyone a FREE Studio J® JPG file-no purchase required! Simply log on to Studio J through my website, create a layout, then order one JPG file of your layout during the checkout process. It's as easy as that! We're offering one free JPG file per customer account during June, so if you already have a Studio J or a MyCTMH® account, you are ready to log on and start creating. If you don't have an account, no worries-you can log on and create an account and then order their free JPG file with no strings attached. Just create an account, then log in to Studio J and start designing layouts! Studio J is intuitive and easy to use; there are just 5 easy steps to creating a beautiful layout:

1. Upload photos.
2. Choose the desired themed kit.
3. Select an exclusive layout pattern.
4. Add photos, embellishments, title, and journaling.
5. Add your layout to your cart and you will be prompted to order the free JPG.
6. Download your free JPG once you have received the email that it is ready to download.
Make June the month you try Studio J with our FREE JPG promotion. You'll love it!
Need a few inspirations for what to do with your free JPG? Besides having the opportunity to learn more about how your scrapbooking can be faster, simpler and easier with Studio J, think about these:
  • Share your photos and memories with your friends by emailing the JPG, posting it on your blog and or Facebook. Everyone will love to see what you have created!
  • Print the JPG in 12x12 and add it to your personal scrapbook. Although the color quality may be a bit different when the layout is printed by another company, they will still be beautiful and you can enjoy your layouts in full size! Or, better yet, have it printed from CTMH for the true CTMH colors and quality!
  • Print your JPG in a smaller layout such as 8x8 and begin creating a mini album for a grandparent or friend. Sharing your memories and photos make others who may have missed an event, feel included. These mini albums also make great gifts.
  • Print your JPG in a 5x5 or 4x4 size and use it as a Christmas card! Wow, what if you had your holiday greetings ready to go in June! Talk about being prepared! And they will be unique and personalized to you and your family! I bet no one will receive the same or similar card!
  • Print the JPG and frame it for a gift. Personalized layout make beautiful gifts filled with memories.
  • The most IMPORTANT thing you can do with a high resolution jpeg of your layouts is to burn a couple of CD/DVD copies and store them offsite. When you have a Studio J membership, when you purchase the print of the layout from CTMH you also receive the three JPG's as part of your purchase. Or, you can purchase just the JPG's as well. In the wake of all the tornadoes, flooding, and fires, storing JPG's on a disc off site, assures that your memories and photos are safe.
Enjoy your free gift on us!
