Studio J Layout

Pin It
I love Studio J online scrapbooking!  Here is a layout I created on my website this morning.  Our daughter went horseback riding for her birthday and had a blast.  I think we've opened a can of worms now!

Try Studio J and let me know what you think!

Studio J - Close to My Heart Online Scrapbooking!

Pin It
I am so excited to introduce Studio J!  It is so quick and easy and you don't even need to pick up a pair of scissors!  This is perfect for people who have never scrapbooked before AND those who already love it.  You simply upload your photos to the Studio J site (free) then select one of the beautiful layouts and Close to My Heart paper packs.  Then all you need to do is click and drag the photos, add coordinating accessories, and you're done!  CTMH will then mail you your layouts already finished!  The layout is printed on archival quality paper and looks completely three dimensional.  Give it a try (no purchase necessary), write a comment here, and you will be entered to win this terrific Felicity Set!  Try it here!
