Lucky 5

November marks the five-year anniversary of Studio J®, and that means it’s your lucky month, with five amazing ways to win through Studio J and Close To My Heart social media!


First, throughout the month of November, all layouts purchased in Studio J are $5! That is a savings of over 25% off of retail! Your second chance to win big must come by sheer luck: every fifth order placed in Studio J during November receives a FREE surprise Close To My Heart accessory in its shipping box! The accessory has a retail value of $5 or more.

If luck doesn’t smile on you in that way, you might stumble upon it by finding a little extra something in your Studio J box. Five “golden tickets” will be sent out during the month of November with randomly selected Studio J print orders! This “golden ticket” is redeemable for one of Close To My Heart’s new D-ring albums* loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors™.

For a fourth way to win, simply create new, gorgeous layouts in Studio J, select your favorites, and then post pictures of them on Close To My Heart’s Facebook page using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5. After November 30, five lucky winners will be selected from the entries based on their artistry and creativity and each of these winners will receive their own D-ring album loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors!

And there is one last way to win: take your new Studio J artwork and post a picture of it on Instagram using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5. Just as it is with Facebook, after November 30, five lucky winners will be selected from the entries to receive their own D-ring album loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors!

And to make things even more exciting, starting November 1, five brand new kits from the Annual Inspirations idea book will be made available in Studio J, so you can create new artwork using the latest papers and embellishments from Close To My Heart. With so many ways to win, five may be your new lucky number! Log in to Studio J and start creating today.

First Day Of School Meets Studio J

SO I love the first day of school pictures everyone always post.  All the cute signs, cute clothes and all those darling excited faces.  This will be my first year of sending a child to big school.  I am so excited I loved school but man I know I am going to miss my buddy.  I decided to make my own signs this year using Studio J.


I think these turned out super cute.  I can’t wait for the pictures.  She is so excited about school I am just hoping to not embarrass her when I drop her off that first day!


I love Studio J

I think there is no question on my love of Studio J and how it has affected my scrapbooking and memory keeping.  This summer has been so busy and when I find time to scrapbook it has to be quick, organized and I need to get a lot done at one time.  Scrapbooking to me is relaxing when I can sit down and get a lot done.  I also enjoy doing it while watching my favorite shows.  These are some of my recent Studio J projects.

girls_weekend_-_1 girls_weekend_-_2Some of my best girlfriends got to come to Pensacola for the weekend and I loved being able to get the photos scrapbooked really quick.  I love being able to use my Instagram pictures  because lets face it most of my pictures are on my phone these days.  I also love that I could print off multiple copies of this layout to send to my girlfriends so they could have a happy.  Even if they don’t have a scrapbook these layouts are fun for a wall.  Stay tuned for lots more Studio J fun, I have been a busy Bee!

Im Back

I know its been a while but life has been somewhat crazy around our house and finding the time to sit down at the computer has just not happened.  I have been working hard on several projects for some other folks and so I haven’t been able to post pictures.  I have been trying to keep up with my own books with Studio J and here are 2 of my most recent layouts I created.  The first one is from this years beach week!

beach_week2__2013_-_1 emmy_baby_-_1And this second layout is going in Emmys baby book.  Im only 3 1/2 years behind!  Better late than never.  This last layout is all of my Instagram pictures for August.    This 4×4 size is hard to have printed but not on studio J.  I can get 18 photos for $6.95.  Thats a great deal.  instagram_pics_-_1Stay tuned this week for upcoming classes and layouts.  I have gotten my technology mojo back and will be back posting some fun things this week.

Some more Studio J

I wanted to share some of my most recent Studio J layouts.  Do you Instagram?  I love Instagram its such a fun artistic/photo outlet.  In fact a lot of times my Instagram photos are my favorite but getting them printed isn’t always the easiest thing to do.  I love using Studio J for scrapping these pictures or even printing these pictures.

Here is my layout using these photos

beach_week_2013_-_2And here is my layout of some of my photos at odd sizes so I could easily fit them into my traditional layouts.

zoo_pics_2013_-_1I love how I can now add my Instagram photos into my traditional layouts without having to pay an arm and a leg to have the odd sizes.  Have you tried Studio J yet?  If not just go HERE and play around its a great way to scrapbook.

Im Back Again.

SO I know its  been a couple of weeks but life got a little out of control here.  The remodel is going great but…oh my house!  I also hosted a crop this weekend so…Im not sure if I have been coming or going!  I haven’t been able to take any pictures recently thanks to my current scrap room being a storage area until my Studio is finished but I have been staying up to date with Studio J!  I just love Studio J and Disney World don’t you?




disney_trips_-_6Dont Worry I have plenty of projects in the works.  I just need a work space

Studio J and a trip of a lifetime!

So not only did I get to go on an amazing cruise in February with lots of my Close to My Heart friends they also loaded me up with pages and goodies to make a whole album for the trip.  It also included 5 Studio J layouts all ready to go all I had to was drop my pics in and journal.  They turned out awesome and I already have a pretty good start on our cruise memory book.  Studio J is just so easy click here to go to my website and give it a try!

Lots of Studio J

Let me start of by saying Hello…I am back!  I know I know you have missed me right?  After a nasty virus and pnuemonia I’m hoping we are on the mend for a while.  Come on Spring!

That being said I really took advantage of CTMH Studio J special and got a good bit of my scrapbooking caught up.  (When you have two sick in your home Studio J is a god send!)

So my daughter turns 4 this year I thought it was time to finally scrapbook her 1st Birthday.  I don’t know why I had put this event off.  I have done all of her other birthdays but this one was overwhelming to me for some reason.  I love the way the Chantilly looks with her pictures and so I think it was meant to be.  I had to wait 3 years for the perfect paper!  I hope you agree


Getting Caught Up

I placed a recent Studio J order.  For 5$ a layout I just couldnt pass up getting my books caught up digitally!  I love the way these pages look and really love that they fit right into my traditional album.  Here are a few of my most recent layouts.  This is my take on a layout I had seen on the CTMH website.  I think I did a pretty good job making it mine but using a layout that I loved.

everett_-_1everett_-_2These photos are from my sons birthday and I printed off two copies of each so I would have one for my albums and one for his baby book.  How cool is that?!
