More Studio J!

I have been having so much fun with Studio J!  I created some more layouts.  I even played with the colors, and did a black & white layout, and a sepia layout.  I am going to place my order now.  I am excited to get the finished product!  Remember to check out!

Let me know what you think!

My Studio J Pages

Here are some of my layouts from Studio J!  Be sure to visit for more information!

Studio J!

With the Summer Catalog, Close to my Heart will be introducing Studio J, a digital scrapbook program.  When I first heard about Studio J, I honestly thought why on earth would I ever use this?  I make great scrapbook pages at home. 

Close to my Heart is allowing consultants to try Studio J before it is released.  And last night I decided to see what it is all about.  And honestly I LOVE IT!  I spent a few hours last night playing with papers and layouts, uploading pictures, and designing pages.  As soon as I have all my layouts done, I will place my order.  Once I have it, I will post pictures for everyone to see.  I am hooked! 

Check out Studio J at  I can't wait to hear what you think!

We had so much fun at the Scrapbook workshop this Saturday!  I learned a few things for next time!  I love getting to sit and visit with everyone.  And everyone is always so creative... it keeps me challanged!

March 13th is our next workshop!  This time we will be doing 10 cards.  I will be teaching different techniques, using pastels and blender pens.  I will post samples soon!  I still have to create them! 

I also want to welcome my new downline, Sharlene!  I just know she is going to love being a consultant as much as I do!  I am so excited to get to know you Sharlene!

Happy stamping!

Saturday's Layouts

Here are the layouts we will be doing Saturday!  I can't wait to see all the different layouts with the different papers and everyone's creativity!


A new party!

Those of you that know me, know that I love parties!  In addition to Scrapping & stamping, I love candles and kitchen gadgets!  I usually host at least one PartyLite party and one Pampered Chef party a year.  What better way to get things on my wish list than free?  Well, I have been introduced to a new product... Scentsy!  So I have decided to stay true, and host a party!  Just click on Scentsy to see their website.  You can even order online!  No tax or shipping!  CRAZY!  For me it seems like a great solution.  I love candles, and the way they make my home smell and feel.  But I don't like to light them unless I am in the room.  So with Scentsy, I can leave them on and not worry!  (And when my kitten goes flying across the coffee table and sends my lit candle flying across the room, I won't have to worry about fire!)  So I hope you come and check it out with me!  It should be fun!  If you can't make it, you can order online.  But wait until March first.  The new catalog will be out, and they are increasing product sizes and not the price!

Saturday March 6th, 3:00 PM
Main St Coffee House
Hope to see you there!
