Studio J Is Here!!! Check Out My Cruise Layout!

IT'S HERE!!!!!!!!!! Announcing the arrival of Studio J, taking scrapbooking to the next level! You can check it out starting at 11:00 AM EDT by clicking right HERE.

Be sure to go check it out and play, play, play! Whether you want to use it as a free design studio to see how your layouts will look before cutting (or purchasing) that particularly amazing paper you've been eyeing or you'd like to do what I did and create layouts, Studio J offers something for every scrapbooker.

Our tagline is: Real life. Real scrapbooks. Real time.
If I can do it and LOVE it, you can too!!
You are going to want to read this whole post carefully. It will be worth every juicy little tidbit! Here's a little FAQ for YOU!
Q: When is the release date?
A: TODAY, TUESDAY, APRIL 27, 2010. 9 AM CDT/11 AM EDT. Just go to my website and there will be a tab added that day for Studio J. Click there and you can begin playing...for FREE! You pay NOTHING unless you order some layouts. Putting them together is TOTALLY FREE! I love free! In the meantime, if you haven't watched the Studio J introductory video yet, click here to do it!
Q: I LOVE traditional scrapbooking. Will Studio J take away from that?
A: Absolutely NOT! There is room for both in your life. I am living proof. I love them both for totally different reasons. I love the artistic feel of hands on paper and embellishments. I love the speed and ease and professional look of Studio J. Plus, you can always order Studio layouts and then add a few 'lumpy bumpy embellishments' of your own once they come if you have a serious need to do the tactile thing.
Q: I am not a traditional kind of scrapbooker. I have been scrapbooking digitally for years. Is Studio J something that I will like?
A: No doubt about it! I have looked at and tried several different digital offerings out there, and in my opinion, NOTHING can compete with Studio J in quality, concept, cost or beauty!
Q: So seriously, how much does it cost?
A: There is NO COST to use the program. You have no software or hardware to purchase or download. Unless you make a layout (defined as a two page 12 x 12 layout) and decide to purchase it, there is absolutely no cost. Once you decide to purchase, each 2 page layout is introductory priced at $12.95. That is WAY below the industry average! And, if you purchase 5-9 two-page layouts at a time, CTMH will throw in 5 free page protectors. 10 or more and you get FREE SHIPPING, as well as a package of 5 page protectors for every 5 layouts in the order. Cool beans! Once ordered, Close To My Heart prints your layouts on high quality photo paper (I wish you could see the quality of my photographed layouts above in person) and sends them to you. Mine arrived within days of when I ordered them, packaged beautifully and safely.
Q: What if I make a layout and want to save it and purchase it with a group of layouts at a later date?
A: No worries! That is actually the smart way to do it anyway. CTMH will save your projects for 90 days. And, every time you make a purchase your 90 days start over. So, say you make several layouts and then purchase them on day 80. Your 9o day clock starts over. They are saved again. Totally awesome! On top of all of that, CTMH even emails you periodically to remind you where your project clock is.
Q: In a nutshell, how does this "Studio J" thing work?
A: Here are the steps to creating an amazing 2 page layout:
• upload some of your favorite photos
• choose from one of the 54 awesome kits (including most of your favorites from our Idea Books plus some that are exclusive to Studio J)
• choose a layout pattern. There are MANY to choose from. They are like the patterns you'll find in our wonderful "how to" books like Cherish, Imagine, Reflections. The possibilities are endless because all the patterns you can choose from can be rotated 3 ways and flip flopped.
• now personalize! You get to drop your photos in, add text, choose cardstock and background and texture papers from the kit, add accessories (just about every accessory item you can imagine!), distressing, titling, MyStickease, and so much more.
• save and/or buy your layout(s).
Q: If I'm not the techiest of techies, or even techie at all, will I be able to do this?
A: YES! This program is great for techies and non-techies alike. The program is VERY intuitive. And if you need help, there is a user guide you can refer to quickly and easy!!I am SOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED about this program. I know you are going to love it. So, get ready and go play on your lunch break, tonight, or this weekend in honor of National Scrapbooking Month. You won't want to miss it! If you have any questions, I am MORE than happy to answer them. Email me at haleyd@myctmh.com!

If you've read this far, let me share with you a cool thing about my cruise layout. I ordered three copies: one for me, one for my Mom, and one for my sister. One layout times three. Can you get any faster, simpler, easier than that?

  1. I have seen these layouts "in person" and they are beautiful. I'm not really interested in digital scrapbooking right now, but I will probably play around with it some anyway! (and probably get hooked...)

  2. These layouts are truly amazing and beautiful! I will try 'playing' with them some day soon.
