I am very excited about a new product from Close to my Heart called Studio J coming in March. (still in beta and being tested by consultants for now.) It is a completely digital studio where you can upload photos and create CTMH layouts with easy to use templates and current paper pack designs. You can order the 12x12 layouts; in which case they are printed on high quality archival paper and sent directly to you, OR you can just play around to see what you like before hand making it yourself. The layouts are made with the CTMH paper kits you already know and love, and may even have in your craft room right now. The colors are supposed to be very close to a perfect match. So, you can do it all digital, or use your physical kits/items to do 3D embellishing on your printed layouts (yes, this is a special paper that is high quality for photos but also like a cardstock so you can punch it, cut it, and alter it if you want).

Studio J includes embellishments such as stickease, ribbons, buttons and other matching items for each kit. You can change the colors and even re-size the embellishments!

One of my favorite things is how easy it is to play around with the pictures. I can turn them black and white with one click, change them back, move or switch photos, and even create a mirror image. I have never been able to do that before on any software I've used. It is really useful - for example, I had some Christmas photos and one photo I wanted to use had my subject facing the wrong way (better to have subjects looking towards your layout instead of off the page). But with studio J, I clicked one button and it flipped it mirror image so he was facing my layout. It was perfect!

Layouts will be saved on your account for 90 days before being deleted. You can use it as a creative tool to help you with layouts and design (like Jeanette's books) or you can go ahead and order them. But the beauty is that it is FREE and you can use it any way that works for you. Personally it's a lot easier for me to do it ALL right at the computer without the hassle of cutting, organizing, printing, or ordering photos and cropping, cleaning up, etc.

I have a sample page I can show you in person if you are local (central Iowa). Or you can visit for more details.
