November Constant Campaign

Lucky 5!


November marks the five-year anniversary of Studio J®, and that means it’s your lucky month, with five amazing ways to win through Studio J and Close To My Heart social media!


 1  First, throughout the month of November, all layouts purchased in Studio J are $5!  That is a savings of over 50% off of retail - an unprecedented deal!

2  Your second chance to win big must come by sheer luck: every fifth order placed in Studio J during November receives a FREE surprise Close To My Heart accessory in its shipping box!  The accessory has a retail value of $5 or more.

3  If luck doesn’t smile on you in that way, you might stumble upon it by finding a little extra something in your Studio J box.  Five “golden tickets” will be sent out during the month of November with randomly selected Studio J print orders. This “golden ticket” is redeemable for one of Close To My Heart’s new D-ring albums* loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors™.

4   For a fourth way to win, simply create new, gorgeous layouts in Studio J, select your favourites, and then post pictures of them on Close To My Heart’s Facebook page using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5.  After 30 November, five lucky winners will be selected from the entries based on their artistry and creativity and each of these winners will receive their own D-ring album loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors!

 5  And there is one last way to win: take your new Studio J art work and post a picture of it on Instagram using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5.  Just as it is with Facebook, after 30 November, five lucky winners will be selected from the entries to receive their own D-ring album loaded with 10 Top Load Memory Protectors!

To make things even more exciting, starting 1 November, five brand new kits from the Annual Inspirations idea book will be made available in Studio J, so you can create new artwork using the latest papers and embellishments from Close To My Heart.

Hello and welcome aboard the Australasian ANZAC Feature Blog Hop.



If you have arrived here from Patricia Manhire blog then you are in the right place.


If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.


Today I would like to share with you my scrapbook layout and card which features 2 stamps sets designed for the New Zealand and Australian market by the team at CTMH, New Zealand Greetings and Australian Salutations.






New Zealand Greetings

Australian Salutations


Anzac Day, April 25 is a day of such significance in our history and culture, both our countries have national public holidays.


Anzac Day has long been an important day in the calendar of both Australia and New Zealand as we remember the lives given for our freedom at Anzac Cove during World War I.

The main event of the day is the formal Dawn ceremony and parade of Veterans, the sounding of the Last Post and the minute of silence ended with 'Lest We Forget' in services across the nation. 



If you do not have a consultant please contact me or place an order in Jenny's April Online Orders.

Artbooking My Life


Artbooking Made Easy

Take your no-hassle, ready-to-use Picture My Life™ scrapbooking to the next level by incorporating various cutouts from the Artbooking cartridge! 


You will be thrilled with the infinite possibilities available when pairing Artbooking shapes with the easy, ready-to-use cards from the Picture My Life scrapbooking programs. 







Picture My Life™ Skylark




Monica pointed out how the shapes from the Artbooking cartridge can be sized down using the Real Dial Size feature in order to fit these smaller cards perfectly. 


Real Dial Size is going to be the key to making the shapes, cutouts, 
and titles from Artbooking work perfectly on your Picture My Life layouts.







My Creations™ Journaling Cards Box





Picture My Life™ Avonlea



Another smart idea: if you find that your pictures just don’t quite match your color scheme, 
you can always try printing them out in black and white or with a sepia finish.
