I LOVE Studio J!!!!

In November, I ordered a Studio J 5 pack for half price but have never used it.  During June, you could get a free jpg file of one layout so I decided to use the 5 pack.  I uploaded pictures from the snow day we had back in January.  I created the layout in about 30 minutes!!!  I added 2 to my cart (one for each of the boys) and added the jpg (for our family album).  I then uploaded pictures of our new home and created a layout for our family album.  I created another layout for Elijah's album and then copied it, changed a few pics and had a layout for Levi's album.  I placed my order and once the jpg file was emailed, I uploaded it to Walgreens. 

CTMH emailed me saying that I should receive my layouts (and free sheet protectors) on July 2nd, but they were waiting on me when I got home late Thursday night.  Walgreens layout was $12.99 but I had a coupon code for 30% off and free shipping.  I got that layout for under $10!  It is supposed to be delivered tomorrow.  I can't wait to see how it compares to ones from CTMH.  The ones I ordered from CTMH look GREAT!!!!!!  Gabe even commented that they look as good as paper layouts and I should start doing more of these!  I got 6 2-page layouts for under $40, and I only spent about an hour and a half on them.  There is no way I could have done 6 2-page paper layouts that quickly or that inexpensive! 

I am planning to purchase a membership so that each month I get free shipping on one order and all layouts are just $6.50.  I can do 5 layouts a week, place an order just once per month and get seriously caught up on my scrapbooking.  The membership also has special layouts just for members and even exclusive paper packs.  Oh, and I get a free jpg with each layout too!!!!  That means I can share my super cool layouts with all of you so easily.  I am super excited about the possibilities with Studio J.  I am so glad that I finally tried it but I am sad that I didn't do it sooner.
