Close Read
With Flag Day, Independence Day, Canada Day, and more right around the corner, now is the perfect time to celebrate military service and promote patriotism with our three new patriotic stamp sets—only available for a limited time from June 1 – July 31, 2013!

One B-size stamp set and two D-size stamp sets were created specifically to celebrate independence and freedom. The best part is that $5 from every patriotic D-size stamp set and $3 from every patriotic B-size stamp set sold will benefit a military-support charitable organization.

Donations in the US will be made to the USO, the leading, most recognized military-support and services organization in the country. Donations in Canada will be made to the Canadian Hero Fund, which supports spouses and children of fallen Canadian military troops by helping provide post-secondary education funds.

Show your military support and patriotism by purchasing your very own patriotic stamp set today. We love our troops!

Announcing great new additions to Studio J scrapbooking!!

I am BEYOND thrilled to share this next video with you! There is a NEW feature in Studio J which will allow you to add and customize photo wells on your Studio J layouts - unleashing you to discover the very bounds of your creative potential!


Why is that so cool? Several reasons!

Add additional photos to your layouts!
Do you find that you have more photos than the layout allows for? You can always add our fabulous flip flaps to your layout OR now you can add additional photo wells to the Studio J layout!!!! This is beyond amazing! You have asked.....and Close To My Heart has answered! Be sure to watch the video to appreciate what I am talking about!

Change the size and orientation of existing photo wells!
OMG! This is crazy good! Ever have a photo that you want to use, but don't want to rotate your page to change the orientation? Not a problem anymore! Watch the video to see more....


Create your own custom layouts!

You will get several ideas in the video that I am certain will spark your creativity! Start with a blank palette and add your photo wells, text boxes, paper pieces, borders, etc. to create your own custom layout! Then of course add your creative flair with stitching, stickease artwork, brads, buttons, ribbon, distressing, etc.!


Print custom sized photos!

Use the layout to simply print custom sized photos and journaling for classic layouts! Why would you want to do this? Many of our layout patterns call for odd sized photos that most box stores don't print. Another advantage is the silver-halide processing which is the best in the industry, producing quality color with 100-year + longevity! Watch the video to truly appreciate what this means!


Create custom portraits!

Use the No Limits layout to add a portrait photo of ancestors, or school photos, or family photos to create 12" x 12" portraits to hang in your family hallway hall of fame or on a family wall! You can add text with the name, date, and any other information you want - even add accessories including stickease, ribbon, brads, etc. Although I find just a photo with a little text is striking and will create a consistent theme on our wall or in your portrait album!


Watch the video now for even MORE ideas! And contact me if you have any questions or would like help creating with the BEST online scrapbooking software in the industry!

You brighten my day

I love the chevron grey cardstock (included in the Dream Pop packet) as the base of this page to really soften the look, but the bright papers still make it Cheerful!! The clothes pins are a fun way to adorn the banner! They are taken apart and only put on as a single side of the clothes pin to help the page not be quit so bulky! However to still have the silver wire look she used the silver Glitter gel and put where the wire would originally go!! I swapped a friend Amber for this set of pages and it was inspired by Susan :)

The Sky is the Limit

I LOVE the sunrays on this set of pages!! It features several of the fun patterned papers from the Dream Pop paper special! The lettering except for sky is the Houndstooth DE letters. I love that when you color them with the ink they are clear embossed so they resist the ink on part of the letter making the houndstooth show in white along with the color of ink you apply!!  "Sky" was created with the cricut cartridge and Cricut craft room....
pages inspired from Susan and created by Amber!
