October Newsletter

Hello!  As I am typing this newsletter to you today, I am listening to the sound of falling leaves.  What a wonderful sound on a beautiful fall day.  I hope that you are having a good start to the week!

I have a lot to tell you this month.  Here is what you will find in this newsletter:

  • October Special 
  • October Stamp of the Month
  • October Card Kit
  • Upcoming Holiday Classes

October Special - Studio J: Buy 9 Layouts, Get 1 Free!

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to try Studio J!  Does this layout look complicated?  It took me 15 minutes - really!  We have 10 brand new collections in Studio J called Express Collections.  They are all ready for your pictures and journaling.  Doesn't that make it easy for you?  I love the Express Collections because they are beautiful, and I can get some pages done quickly.  I have to tell you that this past weekend I was in St. Louis at a Close To My Heart event.  I had taken a photo of the Arch, and I wanted it to be quite large on the page.  That's easy and affordable to do in Studio J!  So I sat down after the event was done and scrapped my pages.  Watch my blog this month to see what my layouts turned out like!

Studio J is membership free, and there is nothing to download.  You simply create an account and you can go on in and have fun making as many layouts as you'd like!  From there, you can simply add them to your cart and purchase the layouts for $6.95 each.  Yep, that's it - $6.95 per two page layout!  You can order from 4 to 50 layouts at one time with one low shipping cost.

Christmas is coming up, and I am already starting gift books with Studio J layouts.  There are over 99 paper kits to choose from, and I just know that are going to be papers and patterns for every single layout that I need!  If you would like help in getting started with Studio J, please contact me, and I can certainly make an appointment to help get you going with this awesome program!

October Stamp of the Month - Very Merry Christmas

This set contains 11 stamps - please Click Here to see the set.  Can you see the tags and cards you can make with it?  Here is a sampling of what I've made so far.  What pretty tags this stamp set makes!!

October Card Kit

This month's card kit is fun for two reasons.  I wanted to show you how to use Moonlight paper for everyday cards, and I wanted to use a lot of fun Cricut Artiste card bases and cuts that you might not otherwise use.  Card kit cost is $6.00 shipped directly to you.  The kits are pre-cut, pre-stamped, and full directions are included.  Kits are available until October 15th, and they will be mailed on October 16th.  If you would like to send a check, let me know, otherwise you can click the "Buy Now" button to make payment.


Upcoming Holiday Classes

Because I have so many fun holiday classes coming up, I will be posting and sending individual e-mails for each one.  I will be teaching classes that will not only help you with your cards, bags, and tags, but can serve as gift-giving items for the holidays.   I wanted to give you a heads up on description, dates, and times.  Sign up early when you receive the class e-mails as space is limited!
