are you looking for a Super Fast and Easy way to do scrap booking!!

My middle son Zaquri was just married to his sweetheart Sammie on Oct. 20th. I wanted to quickly make some pages to add to there wedding album. I used the Express Layouts in Studio J to create all of these layouts of there engagement and bridal photo shoot. I loved how Quick and Easy it was to download the photos, add some titles and a little bit of journaling  and Wallah I was finished!! Oh and I almost forgot to mention I did change the colors of the paper to coordinate with the colors of there wedding, so you can make YOUR pages any color you need to match your clothes, back grounds and etc.! And the great thing is I can print 2 copies, 1 for them and 1 for me :)

 If you are interested in creating some fun, easy layouts you can do so on Janel.ctmh.com then click on Studio J. If you have any questions or need any help please don't hesitate to contact me!!


Good Morning,
Today I am sharing a layout I created using the rest of my Pathfinding paper and Compliments that were left from the 2 layouts I created with my customers this month! The layout design was inspired from a layout one of my talented friends Jenn Mahan designed!

Yuletide Carol pages

Here is a set of pages to coordinate with the layouts that I created in my clubs this month. On this set of pages I used the coordinating stickers and accents. Oh and I almost forgot to mention the ribbon! I love this black striped ribbon because it goes with Everything!! With so many Christmas pictures I will also have this set of pages available to purchase as a kit to go along with my other pages!

Christmas Cards

For my clubs in November we are making some simple fun Christmas cards!!
I saw this adorable idea on pinterest and changed it up to make a fun card for Christmas! I have several sentiments that you can stamp where it says Noel. Also using the Beautiful Yuletide papers!
 I would love to have you join me to make a set of cards for your friends and family, or if you don't live close I can send you a set just let me know asap!!

Oct. 2014 Pathfinding Fall Pages

I love this time of year when the leaves change to such bright colorful colors! The air cools off and it is just such an enjoyable season!!
To celebrate Fall I used the beautiful Path finding papers to create pages and cards this month! We used the Scor-board to dry emboss the bamboo and goldrush cardstocks to add some fun texture to the pages! Then sanding the dry embossed lines on the Goldrush paper, and inking the Bamboo photo mattes!
 The top set of pages was designed by my talented upline Sheri Rhottler, and I just changed it up a little bit! It uses the Pathfinding compliments to finish off the page. Plus to add a special little finishing touches I added shimmer trim behind the chevron punch , I love the extra little bling to finish off my projects!
   The set of pages below are the exact same layout without the compliments. Allowing you to have more photo wells!
The next Layout was inspired by the talented Liz Mullins to use some more of the compliments on a Cute coordinating set of pages!!

I have a couple of kits left that include 2- 2 page layouts and 2 cards!
