Studio J--an easy way to preserve your memories

Nearly every one of the people I serve in my Close To My Heart classes has told me they LOVE the whole creative process--playing with papers and color then embellishing.  This "by hand" process is what we call "classic" and added to the classic way is the social aspect of being with some friends or making new ones as you learn a new technique or share one you have done before.  As a consultant I always come home elated at the time we have had together and am downright joyful and thankful for the opportunity to guide in the creative process.

However, there are times and situations where you (and I) may be in a time crunch or not have access to all those great things we have to take with us to create our project.  That is where Studio J comes in for me.  In July our daughter and family came here to Colorado to spend a few days.  It had been seven years since they were here at all and 15 years since Karen had been here in the summer.  They thoroughly enjoyed seeing a part of the country so beautiful and Karen's husband took many photos.  I asked him to put the pictures from his camera on my computer before they left.  What you see here are the first two of several layouts I am creating for them using Studio J.  I have kept them very simple and some of the journaling will be added by them to photo pockets.  Then because I can download the jpgs of these pages, I can have them printed in a smaller size for each of the boys at some later date.  If you would like to give Studio J a try, I will welcome any questions and would love to assist you.  The finished product is a treasure!

Sharing with joy,
