Studio J Coming this Tuesday April 27th!!

I'm super excited to announce the official launch of Studio J™ on Tuesday, April 27 at 8:00 am (MDT)!!!!

Studio J™ is a FREE online design software that allows you to create custom-printed two-page layouts you put in your albums. There is no software to purchase and install; instead, simply log in to Studio J and start designing your layouts! You can create and immediately purchase your layouts, or you can save them for later completion and purchase.

The software is extremely intuitive and easy to use. The software walks you through five simple steps to creating a beautiful layout that include:

  1. uploading photos;
  2. choosing the desired themed kit;
  3. selecting an exclusive layout pattern;
  4. adding photos, embellishments, title, and journaling;
  5. and purchasing custom-printed layouts ready for a cherished album.
With this launch, Close To My Heart is offering you a special introductory promotion. You may purchase each two-page layout for just $12.95. Also, when you place a single order for 5–9 layouts, you'll receive a pack of 5 Memory Protectors FREE! For placing an order for 10 or more layouts, you'll receive FREE shipping/handling plus a FREE pack of 5 Memory Protectors for every 5 layouts in the single order.

My website will have a Studio J Online Scrapbooking page that will allow you to log in to Studio J using your existing MyCTMH account, to create a new account, or, if you would like try the software without creating an account.

In preparation for the release, Studio J and my website will be offline beginning at 11:59 pm, Monday, April 26.

I hope you enjoy this new program! I had the opportunity to get early access and designed two 2-page layouts in no time! The program is super fun and easy to use and did I mention FREE??

Make time to create,


It's been how long???

Wow! I can't believe that I haven't been here since the begining of the year!! I've been very busy moving my family cross country while working my Close To My Heart business!

Last week we moved from California to Texas! We drove for 4 long days and kind of boring to tell you the truth ; ) Not much to see except for dry land! But before we moved I was very busy holding 3 workshops every month. I'm going to share with you the beautiful pages we made!

Here's the January workshop using the beautiful Veranda papers:

Here's the February workshop using the adorable Topstitch papers:

Due to my move I offered two different workshops in March, your choice between Caboodle:

and You Rock:

I'm sure going to miss all of you and all the fun we had every time we got together! I am so blessed to have met you all! I want to thank you for letting me show you how to celebrate those special relationships in your life through the art of scrapbooking! This is my passion and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!!
