Studio J Is Released!

Studio J is here!

What's Studio J? It's the digi-scrapbooking program from Close To My Heart. It's ready to use, and you'll be amazed at how quick and fun this is!

Why try Studio J?

* Consultants have been using and field-testing this new software and CTMH has tweaked it after many suggestions were given.

* There is NOTHING to purchase, download, or update to use the software. The software is FREE. You can play with Studio J and design your pages and then decide whether you want to have them printed.

* The full version is available to use free. You pay only for the layouts you want to purchase and have printed!

* Every layout is custom printed using the highest quality photo processing paper and technology. Your layouts will last a lifetime!

* Choose from dozens of themed kits to suit any event or occasion, with coordinating embellishments, stickers, and fonts to customize your look. Select just the right pattern, accommodating from two to 15 photos per layout-great versatility.

* You work in two-page layouts with paper that perfectly matches and coordinates with your existing CTMH papers, stamps, inks, stickers, and embellishments. You might have traditional and studio layouts side by side in a scrapbooking memory album, and many won't be able to tell the difference.

* Your layouts arrive at your door very quickly, within about 5 business days!

* You can place your pages anywhere in your album because they arrive as loose pages. You can rearrange your pages as you do for traditional scrapping pages.

* If you love the feel of the texture and layers of traditional scrapping, you can add ribbons, brads, flowers, and other embellishments to your printed pages once they arrive. But you don't HAVE to. These layouts look great with the Studio J embellishments that you color coordinate with the click of your mouse.

* You can catch up on your scrapbooking pages so quickly AND not have any wasted paper photo prints. Resizing images is easy-peasy (a 4 x 6 can become a 5 x 7 or an 8 x 10). A color photo can become sepia or black/white with a click.

Give Studio J a try! CTMH will give you FREE page protectors with the purchase of 5 or more layouts, and FREE SHIPPING with the purchase of 10 or more layouts.

Click here to get started making your own fast, easy, and fun pages!

Here are a few Studio J layouts I'm reposting to show you how fun, simple, and fantastic it is to use!

Have fun! You're gonna love Studio J!

Big Reason to Smile ... Congrats to Bethany!

Bethany achieved her dream. She's now an RN and a DC! We're proud. We're thankful! We're relieved.
We partied. We enjoyed 60 plus family and friends during the weekend celebrations. We survived 6 full coolers, 2 graduation-themed cakes, 12 feet of Subway's braided sandwiches, 8 pounds of shrimp & crab, 16 pounds of pasta salad, tornado sirens and flash flood rains. And we have these Kudos leftover. Whose party is next?

We've been painting inside and out, powerwashing and staining the deck and fence, raking, mowing, planting, and mulching ... and one nice morning we took a break to go to a city park where Ella caught her first fish EVER. That pic is on Emily's blog.

Here's DH fishing that morning--he walked the entire lake perimeter only to do lots of fishin' but no catchin'. This foto is my best catch of the day.

Anticipation! We have a fishing trip planned for early May and another for early June. Whether it's fishin' or catchin', DH and I will definitely be restin'. Vacation, we're ready for ya.

Wedding Memory Keeper Box

Our DD is a bridesmaid this coming weekend for her grad school friend, so I decided to make the special couple a monogrammed memory keeper box to store their special paper items such as announcements, shower invitations, wedding invitation, and their wedding service.

They've chosen to have a black & white wedding color scheme, and the Silhouette papers are perfect for this project.

Blessings as you begin your married life together, Anthony and Tonya, and may you live and love more each day!
