Close To My Heart Studio J Intro

Tool Tip Tuesday:  Studio J

If you have spent any time on my blog at all, you know that I love Studio JStudio J solves a lot of problems that people have when it comes to memory keeping.  The biggest complaint…lack of time!  Studio J has Express Collections that allow you to complete layouts in minutes by simply dropping in your photos and adding a little journaling.  It really does not get any easier than that.  The other problem that it solves is a perceived lack of creativity.  If you don’t feel creative, start with the Express Collections.  Soon you will gain confidence and move on to the regular templates which allow you to modify color choices and more.  Eventually, you will want to try your hand at the No Limits layouts and design from a blank canvas!  Studio J also saves you money.  A double-page spread (aka Layout) is only $6.95…that’s it!  You don’t pay for kits, embellishments, templates, or software.  You simply pay for the layouts you receive in the mail.  It’s an amazing savings over other forms of digital scrapbooking.

Studio J Introduction

I uploaded several of my Studio J videos on Curious and created the following video as an introduction to my course.  I’m currently creating a new course that will be exclusive to Curious, so stay tuned for more information!

Save Money on Studio J Layouts in March!

The good news is that you can save even more money on your Studio J layouts this month…they are only $5!  The bad news is that the month is 1/2 over.  Check out the following video from CTMH for more information:
