FANFARE Scrapbook Pages

Good Morning Everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to share a couple of more creations featuring the FANFARE kit. The difference in these are that they were created digitally in Studio J.   I really, really, really love that program! I am definitely a Studio J addict. :) Enjoy! Tina

July's Focus: FANFARE!

Hey everyone,

Summer is in full swing and I LOVE it! It's wonderful having my kids home everyday enjoying life. It just makes me happy, and so does the FANFARE kit from CTMH. I love the vibrant colors that are included in the papers. This is also the Kit my July clubs will be working with and I thought I would share a couple of cards with you. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

Both of these cards feature the stamp set from the "Fanfare Workshop on the Go" kit and the Paper Pleating technique.

With a smile- Tina

A new "How-To" Video for online scrapbooking with Studio J

Good Morning~

CTMH has created another "how-to" video for digital scrapbooking with Studio J. I know many of you have Studio J memberships and haven't quite gotten started, and then some of you are considering digital scrapbooking but still aren't sure. So... sit back and watch this video and be inspired. It's really a simple program to use with stunning results. This particular video features the Miracle Scrapbooking kit and focuses on the following techniques:

  • Resizing & Layering MyStickease
  • Creating focal point embellishments with the ribbon knot tool through copy and paste
  • How to jazz up your journaling
It's a fun video and I guarantee you will walk away with an "ah-ha!" moment or two. I know I did and am anxious to log in and try one of the new techniques I learned.

As always, if you aren't familiar with Studio J online scrapbooking, there are a few things you should know:
  1. It's completely FREE to use. Simply create a free Studio J account and start playing.
  2. Everything is hosted at CTMH so there is nothing to download, install or buy related to the software
  3. The program is very simple and highly intuitive. If you've tried digital scrapbooking before, only to give up because of the complexity and time consuming nature of the project, you will be happily surprised by the ease of use of Studio J
  4. There are membership options that save you a TON of cash. If you are considering online scrapbooking, I would highly recommend this route and would be happy to show you the savings.
With a smile,

Good Morning everyone,

Today I wanted to share the latest video from CTMH that shows how to use our "Newsprint Rub-Ons."
These are a great new embellishment we are carrying and the packaging is very clever. Enjoy!

CTMH June Special - Free Studio .jpg for everyone

Good Morning,

My newest Studio J layouts arrived in the mail last night and I love them so I thought I would share a few with you all this morning. I also wanted to tell you about the June special CTMH is offering. With Studio J, CTMH sends you a high resolution .jpg of each of your layouts so sharing is easy. This month, CTMH is offering 1 free .jpg to anyone who wants to give Studio J a try. You can then do what you like with it::
  • Print it into a 2-page 12x12 layout
  • Print it into any size you like, including a 9x9 for those of you who scrap 9x9
  • Print out one side into 6x6 size and get a jump start on your Christmas Cards
  • Share it with family and friends in an email, blog or facebook posting
No matter what you do with that .jpg, have fun with Studio J. I know I do and it's easier than you think. I have a mini site I built explaining the "how-to's" of Studio J in video format. Check it out my tutorial and see for yourself:  Studio J
And, if you haven't already created your FREE account in Studio J, you can do so now. It only takes a few minutes. 

Enjoy these newest layouts... and as always, click on the pictures to make them bigger.  Have a wonderful weekend! Tina
