And I just can't hide it!!!! If you have been a fan of Studio J or you have never tried it (now is the time!) you will be so excited as well for our November special. Two layouts are only 5.00!!! With Studio J there is not limits on embellishments, layering, photo size, etc. So this is a super great deal. You can also design your Christmas, birthday, cards etc. in Studio J. Love Instagram.....we have a template to add all those little photos too. Every fifth order that is sent out receives a surprise goodie worth.....you guessed it, 5.00! Do you love the movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, well, 5 Golden tickets will be given out this month in random orders. Yours could be the one to receive the Golden Ticket. If you do, you can redeem it for one of our new, D Ring albums which will include 10 top loading page protectors! There's more ways to win....post pictures of your new Studio J layouts on Close To My Heart’s Facebook page using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5 and another lucky winner will receive a D Ring album with protectors. Love using Instagram, there is one more way to win that album and protectors, take your new Studio J artwork and post a picture of it on Instagram using the hashtag #ctmhlucky5 What a fun, fun month this is going to be creating with Studio J!!!!
