One of the most exciting announcements at our Close To My Heart Leadership Conference was the introduction of Studio J. This new program was 3 years in the making. Close To My Heart has really done their research in designing a program that offers endless options and creativity with complete ease of use and VERY competitive pricing.
What am I talking about? It's is our new Online Design software that goes way beyond "digital". This is really just an extention of our classic scrapbooking - which will always remain our focus. Just as our Level 1 scrapbooking kits offer thel option of beautiful layouts in no time at all, our online design software will offer an even quicker way to move your precious memories from your digital camera to your coffee table scrapbooks!
At release, you will be able to choose from 25 of our Cherish and Imagine layouts, 40 different kits (CTMH paper packs that you know and love - including Giggles & Grins!), and add any of our coordinating stickease and embellishments. With the click of a mouse you can drop and drag or change the size of the stickease. For titles and journaling you can choose from one of our fonts or even Jeanette's own handwriting! And with a click of the mouse, you can change the color of any of the embellishments. And get this - they have even included a safeguard to allow you to choose only colors that coordinate with the kit so that your projects are perfectly coordinated and beautifully arranged every time! But don't think that you will be too limited - at release, there will be 192,000 different options to choose from - and that's even BEFORE you begin to personalize it!
The drag and drop feature is SO easy, you can move your photos onto the layout and it will automatically crop and center it in the space. Want to place the image in your photo off center? Simply move it with the mouse. Want to change your photos to black & white or sepia tones? It's just a click away!
There is SO much more to this new program I'd love to share with you. In fact, it will be released to customers in Spring 2010. But consultants will have a preview period coming soon. PLUS consultants will receive a HUGE discount during that preview period! If you have thought about joining Close To My Heart as a hobbyist or consultant, NOW is the time! I'd love to have you join my team and take advantage of ALL Close To My Heart has to offer! Contact me for more details if you are interested. I will be hosting a preview/training class for consultants on this software in the next month or so.
