When I really want to crank out some beautiful scrapbook pages quickly, I go to Studio J, our online digital scrapbooking program. I can pick from a huge number of paper designs and layout designs (including our newest papers designs and many of our favorite designs no longer in the catalog). And, now, to make life even easier, Close to My Heart has added Studio J Express pages. You don't have to spend a lot of time picking out papers or adding embellishments--you just pick out a pre-designed layout, drop in your photos and add journaling or titles. The embellishments have already been added for you! They have several Studio J Express designs to choose from, or if you don't find what you want in an express page, you can still design your own layout with your choice of paper, layout design and embellishments.
Did you know that you no longer have to have a Studio J membership to get a great deal on our layouts? Now, anyone who orders a two-page gets the fabulous price of $6.95 per layout. And, there are no more "members only" layout designs/papers--it's available to everyone! So, what are you waiting for??? You'll find Studio J on my website, http://christinactmh.com. Jump in and give it a try. There's no cost to create pages--you only pay when you order the prints of your layouts. When you visit Studio J for the first time, you'll need to set up an online account with a credit card number. However, nothing will be charged to your card until you order an actual layout.
If you want some Studio J instruction, I'm hosting an informal Studio J 101 night at my house on Thursday, August 30th, 6:30 p.m. Or, if you're long-distance, consider watching one of our great Studio J tutorial videos!
