Footloose Pooh bear style


I love how well this footloose paper matches of the colors of these Winnie the Pooh movie posters (clip art photos found via Google).  This is once again a more theme-geared paper pack with an ocean/beach flair, I just loved the coloring of the papers (traditional papers) shown here:

Take a look at those digital photos you by passed again!

I love this layout, I mean love it!  Looking at these pictures of my Mom and Kennedy I didn't think much of them.  If I was traditionally scrapbooking, I would have skipped right over these because even though they were funny I didn't think they were worth printing.  Then I was Studio J scrapping and I took a second look.  My Mom and my 2 year old tried taking their own photos with the camera which is why the unusual angles of the shots.  When I relooked at the photos, I just couldn't stop laughing at how much alike these two amazing women are and how glad I have them in my life. 
I find that I journal more while using Studio J.  I'm not sure why, more than likely its because I'm just lazy and it's just so darn easy to journal online.  So take a look at those digital photos again that you flipped quickly through the first time...you just might find some of your stories that you just haven't discovered yet.

Use those JPG's as great home decor

A lot of us have those electronic picture frames, some of you might not even have photos on them (you know who you are).  What if you could take those frames and make them into a moving, living scrapbook!!!!!????!!!!  You can!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Take your FREE JPG images  that come with your Studio J membership (the web version of both pages together works perfect) and add them onto the chip of the picture frame.  Mine sits on my desk at work and I love it. 

For all my consultant pals out there, I also take my scrolling frame with me to gatherings and vendor shows to showcase my artwork.


These digital frames don't have to be expensive either....I bought mine from Target.com on clearance and with the chip, delivered to my door they were less that $25.  What a great Mother's Day gift (Mom I didn't say that, just ignore that comment lol).

Start your Studio J experience now by going to heatherplotzke.ctmh.com and clicking on the Studio J tab under products.

May 1st workshop - Cruisin'

Hi there its that time again....time to pre-register for May's workshop that is.  This coming workshop we will be making cruisin' board books similar to the one I made here that was designed by my friend Dawn Heuft.

The workshop is May 1st at 6pm, and will be held at Oceanside Community Church.  The cost is $20 and I will need your pre-payment  by 4/23/12 so I can order enough supplies for kits. 

 For those out of town, or unable to attend who want to make this super cute book let me know and I will get you pre-cut kit ready for mailing!

Let me know right away if you want me to get your a kit ready.  I look forward to seeing you all soon. 

One last thing I wanted to mention was that when you go shopping on my newly redesigned website will now see on the opening page that you can now shop and help earn one of my current hostesses free hostess goodies by simply clicking on their "join" button.  The items will still ship directly to your home (or where ever you choose) and now my superstar hostesses will earn even MORE FREE products!  So remember to pay it forward and "join" a gathering today!

Look what's new in Studio J

I LOVE OUR STUDIO J TECH PEOPLE!!!!!  They've just added several new reasons for me to LOVE Studio J.  Those who have logged in to Studio J® in the last week may have noticed some improvements in this innovative and exciting software. The most exciting changes give you the ability to:

  • Move, crop, resize, and rotate the pre-placed toggle accents
  • Send backward and bring forward using new buttons on the toolbar
  • Select multiple items and send backward or bring forward as a group
  • Add distressing directly to photos

These new improvements make the Studio J creation process even easier and quicker than it was before.

New Clearance Goodies

OMG, I just checked out my own shopping website and there are lots of new goodies at crazy reduced pricing!!!!!  Hurry I can't believe these great clearance deals will last long!  Some of my favorite products like our 5x7 My Creations Journal is on there for just $5!  I know I'm ordering to day to stock up!
CLICK HERE to see the deals for yourself.

When you shop online, you now have the option to choose to add your order to one of my current hostesses gathering totals, so like in the movie Pay It Forward you can help some one else earn hostess goodies.  Good Karma my friends.  Call me or email me to set up your OWN gathering today!
