Studio J ... And a GIVEAWAY!

I must confess, I have been terrible about not telling people about Studio J!  If you aren't familiar, Studio J is our online scrapbooking software.  Not only is it free to use, it's perfect for ANY skill level!  And I mean that - if you have never so much as put scissors to paper before, even you can use Studio J and make something beautiful.

In fact, it's especially strange (and maybe a little amusing) that I don't promote Studio J the way I should, because it's how I first discovered CTMH about two years ago!  A Consultant who was a friend-of-a-friend on Facebook mentioned it in a comment, and I clicked, and twenty minutes later I had created a 12x12 print with pictures of a friend's wedding.  I sent it to her, and to my surprise, she was THRILLED with it.  She immediately wanted to know how she could make more.  She framed it and hung it in her house right away.  It was then that I knew that Studio J - and CTMH - were worth my time and energy!  I haven't looked back since.

It probably goes without saying that a huge draw to Studio J is that there's no initial monetary investment.  When I first started scrapbooking and making cards, I spent a LOT of money getting myself set up with papers, stamps, inks, tools, and even a way to store it all.  If you do it online, you don't have any of that to worry about.  It's definitely a matter of personal preference; I happen to love working with the paper and finding ink stains on my fingers when I'm done.  But for those who like a faster, neater, and cheaper result, Studio J is the answer.  Oh, and if you're like me and don't like installing unnecessary software on your computer, don't worry.  You needn't install a thing - this is all done online.

Just a couple of ideas for projects you can do with Studio J (these are kits from the Fall/Winter Idea Book - there will be a whole new set next week when the new Spring/Summer book debuts!).

Where's the giveaway, you ask?!  Well, once this blog hits 50 followers, I'll be doing a giveaway for a Studio J 5-pack card... and a nifty little bonus!  This is a prize worth over $55 and will give you the chance to try out Studio J with no expense, and therefore no risk.  So share the link with your friends and watch for updates!
