Studio J- Holiday Photo Cards

Yes, you heard that right... you can create your own amazing Photo Cards in CTMH's Digital Online Program- STUDIO J!!!!!

Last year, fellow Director, Brae, shared hers with me.  She has a tutorial on her blog of how she created these.  I instantly fell in love!  The Sparkle & Shine collection is beautiful and looks perfect as photo cards!  Don't you think??

(These are my cards from last year)

Think about this.... if you are going to buy custom made photo cards--- I'm talking GOOD QUALITY PRINTED PHOTO CARDS--- what would you pay???  $1.50-$2.00 per card??? 

Here I have 8 photo cards that are 4x8.  They will fit into a standard letter envelope, with regular postage. THIS MONTH Price:  $5 ((After tax & shipping, cost is LESS THAN $1 per card))

Ready to create your own???  Head on over to Studio J and get started today!  
Want some help???  I'm happy to create for you :)  email me at roxybonds@gmail.com to place your order! 


There are so many different things you can do with these cards!  Brae used black and white photos.  She is also printing two 4x4 photos in the top right corner of the layouts.  Awesome way to maximize that space :)  



Here, fellow Director Michele created 5x7 cards using the Jingle collection.  Again- 8 cards for $5!

Heart2Heart- No Ink Challenge

This week's challenge at Heart2Heart is NO INK!

How can I craft without ink???  Well, I could do a Cricut project.... better yet, I could just scrapbook in Studio J!


With this month's Lucky 5 promotion, I've been busy creating Studio J layouts :)  This is one I created of our Halloween pictures this year.  That's the awesome thing about Studio J- you can scrapbook the photos as soon as you take them :)  

Studio J layouts are only $5 this month---- whaaaaaat!  I know, a crazy great deal!  CLICK HERE to get started!


Be sure to take a look at what my Heart 2 Heart Design Team friends have created with NO INK this week!

Autumn With Attitude Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  

Who are the Stampers with Attitude????  This is the team led by my upline Kimberly Moss!!!

If you are coming here from Melissa's Blog you are on the right path. 

November's theme is  Autumn with an Attitude! 

There are 2 traditions at my kids' school just before Thanksgiving that are FuN!  

Each year they do a Turkey Trot fun run.  I found a photo of my son, from his first Turkey Trot run as a Kindergartener (look how small he is).  

For this page I used the Pathfinding Workshop on the Go Kit.  My layout is based on the additional layout in the kit.  The title was cut from Cricut Artfully Sent, and stamped with the Artfully Sent Alphabet.



This little turkey element was so fun to create!  I was inspired by a card I saw from fellow consultant Faye R.  I cut an owl from art booking, placed 1/2 of a scalloped circle behind it.  Then I took several pieces of 2x2 paper and rolled them up.  I then glued those rolled pieces behind my owl.  I added some bling gems for the eyes :)  



The second tradition is a Thanksgiving Luncheon.  Families are invited to this luncheon each year.  My hubs goes to have lunch with the kids every year :)  
As a Kindergardener, The kiddos dressed up as little indians- so cute!

This is the other page from the Pathfinding Workshop, additional layout.  I used some Kraft Alphabet Stickers and Framework Alphabet for my title.  
Supplies:

Frame It- Chalk It Up School Photo Part 2

What do you do with your kids' school photos??  Do you put them in a picture frame on the wall and swap them out each year?  Do you scrapbook them?  

HOW ABOUT DOING BOTH!!!!!

This is my son's Spring School Photo from Kindergarten.  I wanted this photo/layout to be "frameable"




I used the Chalk It Up Paper pack, Chalk It Up compliments, Chalk It Up Assortment, Framework AlphabetTeal Glitter Paper, Silver Shimmer Trim,  and a Journaling Pen.  


Then I framed this layout in the Black Design Decor Frame and Allison's (see it HERE) in the Colonial White Design Decor Frame.  They are hung on the wall, on the way to the scrapbook room :)

Heart2Heart Sketch Challenge


This weeks' challenge at Heart2Heart is a Sketch Challenge.  


Here's my interpretation:





When I stamped "Thankful" I inked the stamp with Goldrush Ink, then I swiped Cocoa ink over it, giving it a streaky look.  

Be sure to check out the sketch challenge over at Heart2Heart this week!
