Studio J is a Fabulous Way to Scrapbook!

I just have to say that Studio J is a truly fabulous, quick and easy way to scrapbook. I can't think of anybody who has enough time to enjoy their family and keep up with getting all those pictures scrapbooked. Why not give Studio J a try and I think you will quickly see what I'm talking about.

Here's another layout that I was able to create in just a little time. I didn't have to drag out all my paper and other supplies to get these pictures on a layout. I just sat here at my computer & played with virtual paper and embellishments until I got it just the way I wanted.

What do you think?

Leave a comment to let me know what you think!

And, don't forget...tomorrow's the last day of the special!

Cruise Life

I've been busy scrapping the pictures from our cruise in January. I just love how getting them on a layout make them so much more meaningful. Alone they are just pictures but, in a layout they actually tell the story and make me want to go back...soon! I also love that it's so easy to get the look I want in Studio J. Try it out this month for only $5 a layout! Studio J

A Video To Get You Started On Your Studio Savings

Since there's a great special going on in the month of March for Studio J, I thought I would share a video that shows how easy it is to create a layout in Studio J. To try it out for yourself, go to my website.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think about Studio J!


At a recent team retreat, one of my fellow Close To My Heart Independent Consultants, Mary Collins, gave a demonstration on quilling. I had always been interested in trying it but had never been brave enough to actually complete anything. Well, I was inspired to give it a try since Mary was sitting next to me & could help. Here's a card I made using the techniques she demonstrated.

I'm sure people who know quilling wouldn't think it looks that great but I like the shabby look it has...even the messy stamping with a new, not completely seasoned stamp. There are no mistakes...just opportunities for embellishing & distressing.

Balloon Ride Paper Packet Focus

It's time for the Balloon Ride Blog Hop! If you're coming from Judy Faye's Blog you're on the right track. Look around here to see what I've created with the Balloon Ride paper. I decided that I'd like to create something to hang on the wall. I hopped on to Studio J & whipped out this layout in record time. I plan to frame it in a pretty frame after it's shipped. I haven't ordered it yet because I'm trying to get caught up on some of my scrapbooking. And, what better time to do it than the month of March. Studio J layouts are just $5 this whole, entire month!!! I hope you'll jump on the Studio J train and try it out for yourself! Here's my layout/wallhanging.

I hope you enjoyed what I created. Now, hop on over to Melissa's Blog to see what she created!
