Are you kidding me?  I can not believe were are 5 1/2 weeks from 2015.  Already!  Where has this year gone?  Well, although it is still Autumn I am sure you are all tired of looking at my header by now.  I will change it up a bit, keeping the same color scheme.  After all, it is still fall; until 12/20/2014 at least.

As the months go by, Close to my heart continues to have it’s monthly specials.        This month is Studio J month.


What that means is, the digital scrapbooking system that Close to My Heart has for scrapbookers, cardmakers, and digital photo printers is on special for this month.  Two  12″ x 12″ pages of whatever you want to have printed is only $5.95 per 2 pages.  That is a $2 discount.  This is in celebration of Studio J’s 5th birthday!  It has revolutionized and speed-ed up the scrapbooking process.  Pick your paper, pick your layout, upload your photos and drop them into the boxes you want, add your digital embellishments that print out looking 3D and voila:  2 page lay out: done.  The pictures resize automatically to whatever size your box is, from 2″ x2″ to 12″ x 12″.  This is a great tool to add to the usual paper cutting and gluing that we all know and love.

SOTM - November USThe November Stamp of the Month is very versatile as well.  Leave the images as they are stamped or layer them.  Great for any kind of card:  Thinking of You, Just Because, Friends, Happy Birthday, Thank You or Sympathy.  Use fall colors or spring colors or the rich bright summer hues.  You can even create your own embellishments, saving money for those Black Friday to Cyber Monday purchases. The attached picture shows a 6″ x 6″ wall hanging (small picture) completed with the images you can stamp with this set.  There is a card image using this stamp set next to the wall hanging.  You can have this stamp set for $5 with a $50 purchase or for $17.95 bought by itself.  Just click on my website:
