FREE Studio J membership

Studio J Contest!
Hello everyone! To promote the wonderful giveaway from Close to my Heart this month I am going to have a drawing for a 3 month membership to Studio J and all you have to do is to post a jpeg from your own Studio J layout on this Facebook page or my blog. Guess what? That's absolutely free this month! Get yours on my website here.  Or join me from 6-9pm at my house on a Tuesday in June so I can help you create it.
I only got a Studio J membership because it was one of the options in my consultant kit.  I am not real technically savvy but I love it.  It is set up like our classic scrapbooking.  What I mean by that is you can follow a basic template or be as unique and creative as you want.  You have access to all current and retired paper designs.  If you are a member you will also have a few member only paper patterns and layout templates.  CTMH has produced some great how to videos. Check out the art gallery for some inspiration. 
  And the best part is, you will create an awesome layout in less than 30 minutes.

Purchase the You & Me scrapbooking kit for only $15.00 US/ $16.50 CAN (a retail value of $34.95/$38.95), and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross Spring 2011 Floods and Tornadoes relief operations.
