Digital Scrapbooking with Studio J by Close to My Heart

Deep down I am a traditional paper scrapbooker. However, with less time, more to do each day and getting further behind in scrapbooking I have started to mix my albums with traditional paper scrapbooking and digital scrapbooking.

For the past couple of years I have been purchasing on-line scrapbook kits and working with Photoshop on creating layouts. However, it would take me hours to do one layout by the time I found a sketch, the paper I wanted and create the layout with embellishments, techniques, etc.

Then I found Studio J from Close to My Heart. I was hesitant at first because I thought it would take away some of the creativity away, but I am quick to admit how wrong I was. I choose the pictures, paper, sketch and get to personalize each layout in a number of ways, but now in the matter of a few hours I can create a handful of two-page layouts.

Here are the layouts I have created the past month:

Creating with Studio J is simply, fun and fast.
  • Log into, no software to load your computer, no constantly updating and can use your account from any computer!
  • Upload your photos.
  • Pick a paper kit from a choice of over 80 choices of current and retired Close to My Heart paper.
  • Choose a sketch from over 20 choices (or over 30 choices for Studio J members)
  • Pick choices of paper used with corresponding sketch
  • Drop photos into sketch
  • Embellish as desired with title, journaling, brads, buttons, stitches, inking, distressing, tags and more
  • Finalize layout and order
  • Within a week you will receive in your mail (free shipping) the layouts complete with page protectors and ready to add to your album.
