Studio J Summer Layout

Do you want to get some of those summer pictures done FAST? Then you will want to take a few minutes to watch this Studio J Video. If you have never tried our Studio J before, you will want to after you see this video. You can try it free...simply go to my website and click on the Studio J link. Sign in or set up an account if you don't have one and start to play! There is no fee or obligation. Just get out there and play. The joy of Studio J is if you only have 10 minutes to play, you sign in, create and Studio J will save your place for you until you have another 10 minutes to finish up.

We know there are many people who take pictures and keep them in their camera or on their computer and don't do anything with them. Are you one of them? Well we want to help you preserve and share those memories. The one thing I really love about Studio J (besides it take very little time) is, after you create your layouts and purchase them, you get free jpg files that you can then post to your facebook, blog or even email to your friends and family. They too can share in the memories.

So take a few minutes to watch this video and see how easy it is to create layouts using Studio J. And remember, if you decide Studio J is for you, we have 3 month and 12 month memberships that make these layouts a great deal, so give me a call or send me an email and I will help you with what options work best for you!

New Car Layout

I was scrapbooking the other day and decided to use our Lucky Paper Pack for the pictures of my son's new car. Not only were the pictures fun to scrapbook...because getting a new car is very fun, but the paper pack is one of my favorites!
It is VERY versatile! Not only do I love the paper pack but I used a new stamp set called Vintage Type (D1481 $17.95). It's very cool. I didn't use the alphabet with this set, I used the pennants (see them in the upper left corner of the first page and the lower right of the second)
from this set. Pennants are VERY popular right now in the scrapbooking world.
Here's a REAL cool part of this. The pennants (and the tag in this set) also have a setting on our Cricut cartridge so you can tell it to cut a bunch of pennants (or tags). That means NO CUTTING by hand! YIPPEE! Even though I do like to cut, but I think I will like having the Cricut cut LOTS for me! lol This will enable me to embellish even more!

The other thing I like about this layout is the Newsprint Rub-ons (Z1388 $ 8.95). I used them on the right side and it says, "my new car". I really like these rub-ons. They look like little tiny pieces from your newspaper...but you don't have to cut these out...just rub them on!

Are you feeling like scrapbooking now? Grab any kit and start creating and preserving those memories! Do you have these newsprint rub-ons already? If so, I challenge you to get them out and create something with them! If you don't, you will want to get some. As always, just call me...I will get you some!

Have a great scrappin day!

Scrapbook Page Pops with Flowers

Have you heard yet that Close to my Heart has just gotten our own Cricut Cartridge yet? I know it's been all over and we are SOOO excited about it so we are YELLING it all over! But our cartridge is different from so many others and here's why.
We have coordinated our stamps with the cartridge. YEP, so now you can cut out an image and simple stamp on the cut out and you have a BEAUTIFUL creation!
Watch this 2 minute, 28 second video that shows you how.
I will also give you a tip. I use the grid paper like they use in the video when stamping...however I found that it is a little difficult to see the image you are stamping on because it is normally white or colonial white. So I took out my VersaMat (Z1279 for $14.50) and use that under my images. The mat is black and even has a grid on it for more precise stamping. Now I can see my image (white or colonial white) and it makes for MUCH easier alignment.

If you do not have your CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge yet, you need it! It has so much on it! It has shapes, an alphabet, bags, boxes, dimensional flowers, borders...so much! There are 700 shapes! Want to see all of them...go to closetomyheart.com and see all the images! In addition to ALL those images, you also get 3 stamp sets and 3 dimensional elements sheets with coordinating shapes. This is not only an amazing deal at $99, but you will love all the cool stuff you can make! Contact me to get yours Today!

A Typset - August CTMH Special

Just as I told you last week, here is our August Special. It is called A Typeset. It is FREE when you purchase $50 in products AND the August Stamp of the month for just $5. So for $55 you will get $80 in products! What a GREAT deal!

If you would like this great special, just give me a call (402-334-5615) or send me an email (gottastamp@cox.net) and I will be happy to get it ordered for you!
I made this cute little (it really is little) french fry box that I cut with our New Cricut Cartridge. I also cut the little pennants with it too and then stamped YUM using our A Typeset alphabet. It was quick and easy. I like that combination!
Remember this is only available in August!
