This is the layout I taught at Studio J Boot Camp!

Watch my tutorials to learn these techniques or schedule a one-on-one Studio J session with me.

There are so many benefits to memory keeping the Studio J way!

I love that Studio J allows us unlimited My Stickease and embellishments. We can even resize them...can't do that with our classic supplies.

Use Studio J to create hybrid pages.

Let me show you how to dress up a Studio J page with a little bling! I added Bitty Sparkles to this page.

Let your creativity shine with Studio J!

Take my face-to-face classes or watch my video tutorials to learn advanced Studio J techniques such as creating your own background paper using text boxes.

Studio J is your best friend if you are short on time.

Drop in your photos, color the toggle accents, add a title and journaling, really is that easy! Let me show you how.

Snow Day #2

Low OverheadThere are a million things I could be doing right now to be productive and take advantage of my second snow day. Instead, I'm playing with Photoshop and turning my husband into a comic character!  I followed this great step-by-step Comic Book Photo Effect tutorial.  It includes downloads and links to recreate the photo in the tutorial.  I used my own photo and downloaded some fun comic fonts from

So, you may be wondering what in the world prompted me to create my own comic book photos.  The answer is the new Superhero kit that is about to be released in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book!  It is awesome!  Here is a quick sneak peek at one of the projects the CTMH artists made with this fun kit.

Don't forget that this kit, along with all the new papers, will be released on Studio J on February 1st as soon as the new Idea Book is available to customers.  If you would like a copy of the Idea Book, let me know.

Last Chance to Get Some CTMH Favorites

There is so much going on with Close To My Heart this month, I'll try to keep up!

The biggest thing you want to keep in mind is that this is the last month for the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book.  As excited as we all are about a new Idea Book launching February 1st, that means a lot of our favorite papers, embellishments and stamps are retiring as of January 31, 2012.  This is your absolute last chance to get these items, so place your order right away.

I want to give a special shout-out to CTMH consultants Kathleen Stoppelmoor, Cassandra Bennett, and Tamytha Jenkins for compiling this list and sharing it so freely.  If you have ever thought about becoming a consultant, I highly recommend it...this is a friendly group of papercrafters!  Here is a photo of the new consultant kit with some product sneak'll be our little secret!
Okay, so if you don't become a consultant, you at least need to purchase $25 out of the current Idea Book so that you can take part in the Rock the Block special.  With your qualifying purchase, you get the Collage Cubes and an exclusive E-size stamp set for $15...that is a $30 savings over retail! With all the awesome retiring items listed below, I'm sure you are going to find something you want.

Don't forget that with a $50 purchase, you get the Stamp of the Month for only $5.
