Good morning! Welcome back to Broken Treasures blog. My final digital review is Close To My Heart's Digital Program Studio J. Now, you may think that I am bias because I am a consultant but I have to say that I would not sell something I do not love! It was my love for CTMH products that interested me in becoming a consultant in the first place. It is like any other profession - you go to school to learn and do something you will enjoy - it is the same with me. There are so many things I love about Studio J but after trying to review other programs I would have to say that my favorite thing about this program is that you don't have to purchase a thing to play around with it! It is absolutely FREE to try it out! How awesome is that?
Like My Memories there are a ton of video tutorials for Studio J. My favorites are found at Amy Ulen's You Tube channel. Here is one of her tutorials.
Another great video to watch is the basic steps to Studio J.
Studio J also has a blog here, facebook page here and the link to try out the site for FREE is here.
Here are a few pages I have done on Studio J
Twice a year CTMH releases a new Idea Book and with that new papers are added to Studio J. I love that you don't have to download anything onto your computer - it is all done on-line! However, because of this there is no way to just purchase some of the papers digitally. I really wish they would offer both because I know there are a ton of people who already use different digital programs. CTMH's digital papers and layouts are so beautiful - I wish they would offer them for sale to those who already use other digital programs. I'm suggesting this - we will see what happens in the future!
Some things they did add that I am thrilled (THRILLED!) with is a stitching tool and a "no limits" layout. Amy shows you how to use free digital downloads from other websites on this layout - it is awesome!
According to Close To My Heart's founder Jeanette Lynton, Studio J is a priority for CTMH. You can read more about her post on Studio J here.
