Autumn/Winter Idea Book (page 88) is the Festive Memories Card Kit. This kit is for photo cards, which I personally LOVE! I almost always include some type of photo of my daughter or our family in my Christmas cards and this kit will make it that much easier. You simply print your 4"x6" photos and adhere them to the inside of the top of the cards.
Tip: Add your photos to the cards FIRST. Then fold the cards in half and add the stickers and self-adhesive gems. That way you can see your photo image through the "frame" and you won't cover up any essential parts of the photo with stickers.
The Festive Memories Card Kit kit includes the supplies to make 12 cards and includes the envelopes!
12 - 5"x7" Preprinted Cards (6 each of 2 designs)
3 - 12"x6" My Stickease Adhesive Sheets
36 - Tulip Sparkles (12 small, 24 Bitty)
36 - Sweet Leaf Sparkles (12 small, 24 Bitty)
12 - White Daisy Envelopes

I am so excited to announce that "Studio J" has arrived! Studio J is Close To My Heart's online digital scrapbooking studio. Studio J features CTMH's fabulous papers and layouts and is super easy to use. There is nothing to download, no software to purchase. You just need an internet connection and a web browser to use it. You only pay for the layouts that you purchase.
A Studio J "layout" is actually TWO 12x12 scrapbook pages! The price is a great deal as you are not purchasing paper, printing pictures, buying software or digital scrapbooking "kits" AND it saves tons of time. You first upload your digital photos to Studio J and then select an exclusive CTMH paper "packet" and layout. Then simply drag and drop your photos. You can easily re-size your photos or change them to black & white, sepia, etc. After your photos are in the layout, then embellish to your desire. There are lots of options, but it really is FAST and EASY to use.
What I absolutely *love* about Studio J is that I can mix Studio J layouts and traditional scrapbook layouts in my albums. It's not a problem because you simply slide them into the protectors just like regular pages. I will be using it to get caught up on my scrapbooking. :)
For a limited time, for every 5 Studio J layouts you purchase in a single order (that's actually TEN 12x12 pages), you’ll get free Memory Protectors® with your custom prints. Orders of 10 or more layouts get free shipping and handling as well. Create an account and get started today!
Here's a sample of what I've done in Studio J:

Vanessa *loves* dogs and wanted a poodle theme for her party. Sadly, I have no poodle stamps, but I do have a retired CTMH stamp set called Uptown Girl that seemed to fit the theme well enough, and this is what I came up with.
This particular design is called Designer Tag and is featured on the front cover of CTMH's latest Card Confidence Program, called "Wishes". I *love* this book. It has great pictures of cards and updated designs which make for easy card creation. Recipe for this design is on page 97. Grab your copy and look it up. Don't have a copy? Shop for one HERE!
