Stamp of the Month Blog Hop- Circus Alphabet

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for July- CIRCUS ALPHABET

If you have come here from Maria's Blogyou're on the right path.  This month we have over 40amazing artists' blogs for you to visit.

I just love the fun and whimsical Alphabet set this month!

Today I have a card to show you.  I was inspired by Pinterest once again, and decided to make a cardstock only card to showcase this fun set.  I used the Artiste cartridge to cut some clouds and the Artbooking cartridge to cut the sun.  I sponged some Whisper ink around the edges of the clouds.  Using Black Archival ink (for a thick, sharp stamped image), I stamped all the letters.  On the sun I sneaked a brand new product- a gold sequin, with a bitty sparkle in the center.  

The July  Stamp of the Month is available from July 1-31.  It is only $5 with a $50 purchase on my website!

The next blogger in our hop is Kami I know you will see amazing artwork there.  

Happy Hopping!!!

Studio J- One Design, 2 layouts

One of the COOL things about Studio J is the ability to make duplicate layouts EASILY!!!!

Today I want to show you a layout I created, once for each kid :)

I used an Express Collection layout, in the sports  collection.  I changed the colors of the layout to match the school colors.  Then I dropped the photos of my son in the layout, added some journaling, changed the title and DONE!

Then I went into my projects, found that layout and hit DUPLICATE. 

I opened the duplicate layout, and dropped in photos of my daughter, changed the journaling/title and DONE!

This is great for when you're doing similar pages for each child  you have, or if you want to do pages for someone else, with different photos.  

Faster, Simpler Easier just got even Faster, Simpler and Easier!

Give Studio J a try today!!!!

Studio J Layouts- Princess, Zoo & Express Collections

I {heart} Studio J!!

Studio J is a way for me to catch up a little bit with my scrapbooking, to fill in the gaps between the traditional pages. 

This month, I completed 18 layouts, which include 5 pages of photo printing (for my traditional pages).  I will show you a couple of them today :)

Disney on Ice:
I used the Zippidee kit for this one :)

These next 2 use the Express Collections- where all I do is drag in my photos, add some journaling, adjust the colors (if I want to) and DONE!!!

At The Zoo
I used an OLD kit- Expedition for this one- perfect!
