A few weeks ago I went onto Close to my Heart's, Studio J website for online scrapbooking. I had never done it before and didn't know anything about it. I wasn't even sure if I would get actual pages mailed to me or if it was just an online photo album. I thought I'd better try it out so when my customers asked me about it I could give them an honest opinion. Boy, was I pleased. The most difficult thing was choosing which pictures to use. Each layout is 2 12"x 12" pages AND YES! you do get actual pages sent to you as well as .JPG files. The layouts are high quality photos. They fit perfectly in my albums and add an interesting contrast to the other pages. (The Studio J strip on the bottom is not part of the layout)
As you can see I chose 4 different layouts, I used the Express Collection templates but was able to select my own colors and embellishments. There is something for everyone and even a blank canvas for you to create your pages from scratch. Some people just add photos and perhaps some journaling without any decoration and when they get their pages they cut the photos out and use them in traditional scrapbook pages. The quality is that good. Check out the website and see for yourself.Go to STUDIO J Online Scrapbooking Page. You will have to login, but once you do it will take you to the Studio where you can try it out and experiment with the different tools. You don't have to purchase anything until you are ready to. Your projects will be there for up to 90 days so if you don't finish at one sitting you can go back to it at a later date. Have questions? I'll be happy to answer them or find out the answer for you.
Just a quick shout out to Karen over at Little Scrap Pieces. I won her random drawing with my scarecrow gift card box. She sent me this in the mail today. Aren't Those cute ribbons?
