Catching up again ... another card made using paper from Olivia and the January Stamp of the Month.

Catching Up - Soar

I've had this post in a draft for a good month at least, so I thought it was finally time to post it.  I made this card for a swap that was due back in January.  The swap was to use up some retired B&T paper, so I used the paper from Olivia.  It also uses the stamp of the month from this past January.

The word "Soar" was embossed with Silver.

All products are from Close to My Heart.

Sparkle with Studio J

This April, it’s time to let your Studio J® layouts shine with this exclusive, members-only campaign! Studio J members get free bling when they buy 10 layouts this month. Bling it up and bling it on with FREE self-adhesive Sparkles and Opaques Pearl gems! 

One of the things I love about Studio J custom prints is how easy it is to jazz them up by adding a few simple embellishments. See how I added a few Sparkles and Opaques gems to my Studio J layout? It only took me a few seconds because the gems are peel-and-stick. And don’t you think it gives nice dimension to the page? 

This month, Studio J members get a free package of each of these embellishments when they buy 10 layouts. Now’s a great time to get online and get caught up on all your scrapbooking, and when you receive your prints in the mail, you can glam them up with these adorable Opaques and Sparkles!  

 If you’re not a Studio J member yet, what are you waiting for? Studio J memberships give you the 50% discount on prints and the free shipping each month on one order of 4-20 layouts.
