Hawaii Studio J Digital Album, Installment 5



As promised, I'll be back every Tuesday and Friday this month sharing layouts from the Hawaiian Cruise Album I recently made in Studio J (Close To My Heart's online scrapbooking program).  This layout is from our stop in Kauai.  Kauai was definitely our favorite of the stops we made on this cruise. We love adventure and adventure we had!
You can see the cover page of this album and the first layout (Maui) in this post, you can see the Hilo, Hawaii layout here, the Kona, Hawaii layout here, and the first day in Kauai layout here if you missed them the first time.


Today I am sharing the layout that documents our second day in Kauai.  Such fun! There had been a big storm and as you can see in the photos, the water was muddy.  But this did nothing to muddy our spirits.   We loved Kauai!


There is also an AWESOME special this month to celebrate Studio J's 5th anniversary!  The details of the special are below the layout.  Suffice it to say that ONE of the FIVE awesome facets to this special is $5 two-page 12" x 12" layouts all month long!  You can play with Studio J here.

Here are close ups of the pages:




Here are the details of the Lucky 5 special:
 
November marks the five-year anniversary of Studio J® (Close To My Heart's AWESOME digital scrapbooking program), and that means it’s YOUR lucky month, with five amazing ways to win through Studio J and Close To My Heart social media!
 
FYI:  Studio J is FREE to play with. There is NO CHARGE to you to create and store layouts until you purchase them.  It's the bomb.com!!!!! Try it out here.  It's so user friendly too! If you have any questions, I'm your girl!  Call or email me and I'm  here to help (pedermom@aol.com, 801.360.9896).

First, throughout the month of November, all layouts purchased in Studio J are $5! That is a savings of over 25% off of retail!

Third, 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.

3 Floral Cards with the November Stamp of the Month


This month's Stamp of the Month (It's the Little Things) just makes me happy.  I chose Springy colors to go with it because no matter what season it is, doesn't a bright floral card just brighten anyone's day?  It certainly does mine.



When ordering, with every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax) you can get one of these stamp sets for only $5 ($17.95 value) and only in November. Spend $100, get 2, and so on.  You'll get a prompt before you check out to add it (them).  This set disappears when November does, so don't miss out. You can place your order on my website 24/7.  Easy, peasy!

As you can see on this photo, I popped the centers of the flowers with 3D Foam Tape to give the card a bit of personality.


Here are each of the cards separately photographed.  I used 3 of the newest Close To My Heart colors:  Thistle, Glacier and Thistle.  All of those colors come in the Whimsy Cardstock Combo Pack. In fact, you get 2 sheets each of 12 different (and beautiful) colors.  Cool Beans!  All supplies used on these cards are listed (along with photos and links for your convenience) at the end of this post.

You can see the cover page of this album and the first layout (Maui) in this post, you can see the Hilo, Hawaii layout here, and you can see the Kona, Hawaii layout here if you missed them the first time.





One of my favorite features of Studio J is the Express Layouts Collection. There are several collections of layouts that are already done for you, complete with accessories and everything. I all you have to do is plug in your photos, journaling and add your titles. I used the Getaway Collection for this album and did the whole album (18 pages) in about 2 1/2 hours.  WOO HOO! These collections are coordinated to make beautiful albums and come together in a jiffy.  There are themes from travel to "all about me,"  from sports to a year end review, and even more! 

There is also an AWESOME special this month to celebrate Studio J's 5th anniversary!  The details of the special are below the layout.  Suffice it to say that ONE of the FIVE awesome facets to this special is $5 two-page 12" x 12" layouts all month long!  You can play with Studio J here.
