Bling It On!

Yep, I've finally done it... chosen a name for my Close To My Heart team. As the title for this post says, the name is Bling it On! LOL.. it's kind of sassy, but then again, so am I! Anyway, I'm excited to share it with you and excited for the possibilites of expanding my team.

To celebrate choosing a name for my team, I thought it would be great to highlight some CTMH products you can use to add bling to your projects. First, let me show you our newest bling items!

The Cherry-O Pearl Stickers are six adhesive-backed designs made out of pearls! These are SOOO adorable and they coordinate beautifully with the My Reflections® Cherry-O kit.

Next up is Glitz Stardust Glitter Glue - Add this nifty liquid glitter to projects to make them sparkle with ease—without the loose-glitter cleanup! 
Finally, Clear Sparkles are one of CTMH's staples for adding bling! These rhinestones are self-adhesive and come in two different shapes and four different sizes. You simply peel them off the backing sheet and stick them down... it's THAT EASY!

Together You Rock!

This is my swap card for May. Our swap group met this morning at Harry's on Tuam in Houston. What a yummy breakfast! Our theme was Wedding and Anniversary cards. I wanted to do something non-traditional and I really like the You Rock stamp set. The card measures 3.5"x8" and the inside says simply "Happy Anniversary". The colors are Ocean, Chocolate, and Honey. All the cards this morning were AWESOME!

Digital Scrapbooking from Close To My Heart



Studio J is here!!!

Click Here

or go to http://janellejanish.myctmh.com to give it a try.

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:
