Studio J™

Studio J™ is sooooo exciting and easy to use! I have been playing with it since it was made available to Leadership attendees in November. I AM IN LOVE!!! I just order my first 12 layouts and can't wait to get them and see just how beautiful they are in person! From the pages we saw at Leadership and what we were recently shipped, I am sure that seeing it on screen doesn't do the pages justice! Here are some of the layouts I have created so far that are from my AMAZING - FREE CRUISE I took to the Med with CTMH! Enjoy!

If you're interested in getting a sneak peak at this incredible studio, you can sign up as a consultant! Our fabulous Constant Campaign that we are running right now is, Ready for Takeoff!

When you sign up for a MyCTMH Tier II website from October 1–December 31, 2009, CTMH will waive the $24.95 US one-time set-up fee. Now it’s more affordable than ever to offer your customers round-the-clock online shopping as well as Studio J™ online design software when it launches in early spring. Prepare yourself now for a host of new, excited customers anxious to try Studio J by signing up during this promotion!

If you're interested in becoming a part of my team and the Close to My Heart family, you can visit my website for details on how to sign up and feel free to contact me with any questions. My email is and my phone number is (850)525-4262. I look forward to hearing from you!

More information about Studio J™

Studio J™ will be launched in four phases—stair-stepping the release gives leaders and business builders earliest opportunities to familiarize themselves with the software, so they can better support their teams and large customer bases. All Consultants will have preview access to take advantage of our great discounted pricing and experience Studio J™ before customers see the product in the spring. (You too could get the preview if you join my team!) If you’d like to guarantee earliest access to Studio J™-and be prepared to sell Studio J™ to your customers—sign up for a MyCTMH Tier II site. CTMH has waived the $24.95 activation fee through the end of the year, and remember that having a MyCTMH Tier II site is the only way to sell Studio J™ layouts to customers.

The four phases and groups are as follows:
1. All Leadership 2009 attendees: November 2009
2. All Consultants with an active MyCTMH Tier II site: January 2010
3. All Consultants: February 2010
4. Customer launch: March 2010

PRICING Retail pricing for Studio J™ layouts is $12.95 US/$15 CAN, with introductory promotions that include free shipping and page protectors. During the preview period, Consultants will be given the chance at an unbelievable deal: layouts discounted to just $9.95/$11.70 each—and fully commissionable. You may order up to 10 discounted preview layouts, either in a single order or in multiple orders. Shipping charges apply, and no free page protectors are available during the preview period.

Announcing Studio J™ - coming in Spring 2010!

Studio J™ is free online design software brought to you by Close To My Heart, a leader in the scrapbooking and stamping industry. Studio J™ helps you easily create custom-printed two-page layouts using our foundational scrapbook patterns, exclusive color palette, and themed designs all delivered in 12" × 12" custom prints ready for your albums. It’s a snap!

Studio J™ software is extremely intuitive and easy to use. The program walks you through five steps that include: uploading your photos; choosing your desired themed kit; selecting an exclusive layout pattern; adding photos, embellishments, titles, and journaling; and purchasing custom-printed layouts ready for a cherished album. It’s super simple and extremely fun to use!

If you love Close To My Heart’s scrapbooking philosophy, then you will love Studio J™. You only need an Internet connection, and then you simply log into my MyCTMH website to get started {when it becomes available in Spring 2010, that is ;-)}. Feel free to design to your heart’s content—you are not required to buy anything or provide any personal information to get started!

You can create a customer profile that allows you to save and return to a project in progress at a later time. Your active projects will be saved for up to 90 days, giving you plenty of time to work on them. You extend that timeline for your active projects by 90 days each time you make a purchase, and your purchased projects will remain archived for one full year after purchase.

Your Studio J™ layouts are not available for you to print from a home computer. In fact, CTMH takes care of the printing for you. When you purchase your designed layouts, CTMH prints and ships them quickly and directly to you using only top quality printing technology and "100-year" archival-quality paper that is used by top professional photographers and uses silver halide processing, the gold standard in photo processing. The paper isn’t specified as either glossy or matte. It’s shinier than a true matte, but it’s flatter than a glossy stock. Colors will be rich yet will vary slightly from “classic” B&T and cardstock papers using the same colors. This is intentional and required for Studio J’s unique processing and papers.

The price per printed two-page layout is $12.95 US / $15.95 CAN. We also offer some fantastic rewards for larger orders. You can receive FREE Memory Protectors® to protect your layouts in your albums, and FREE shipping/handling based on the number of layout prints you purchase in a single order as follows: For 5–9 layout purchases: You’ll receive a pack of 5 Memory Protectors FREE! For 10–20 layout purchases: You’ll receive FREE shipping/handling PLUS a FREE pack of 5 Memory Protectors for every 5 layouts in your single order.

You will be able to start creating layouts with Studio J™ in early 2010. Check with me for updates or provide CTMH with your email address at the top of the Studio J™ website. We promise to only use your email address to send you what you want—updates about Studio J™! Plus, you'll and be entered into a contest for a FREE album. With Studio J™ online design software from Close To My Heart, you can create designer scrapbook layouts in minutes, ready to be custom printed for your cherished album.
I'd love to have you join my team and then you can love what you do, too! Click on the photo of products that come in the consultant kit for more information! If you sign up before Oct 31st, and you successfully complete both levels in the Straight to the Top (STTT) program per policy, you'll get a WONDERFUL additional incentive - 10 FREE Studio J™ scrapbook layouts!!! What a FANTASTIC incentive!
