Thank You cards using Studio J jpgs

I finally got around to creating my Thank You cards for my wedding today. I wasn't really happy with the photos so I kept dragging my feet. No excuses with Studio J!! I simply dragged and dropped some of the icons from the wedding right into the photo wells and picked paper to match our wedding colors. I picked Sonoma because it's smokey plum and green to match our colors and vintage to match the location because we got married at a historial landmark, the Opera House, in St. George. It was beautiful and all of our best friends were there. It was an amazing day shared with our family and closest friends!! I wanted to send pictures and plan to write on the back of the layouts when I get them back. I purchased JUST the jpg from Close to My Heart and I am having the 4x8 cards printed at www.winkflash.com. They are having a special right now on photo cards and will print your layouts 4x8 for 40% off and shipping is free when you place an order over $30.00--YIPPEE!!

Create your own 4x8 Photo Christmas Card with Studio J


Last night I received the CD with the photos from our family photo session at Thanksgiving and I sat right down and ceated a 12x12 layout in my Studio J design studio.  It was so fast and easy, I simply uploaded the pictures I wanted to use, selected the paper packet, choose a layout that matched the number of photos and dragged my photos into the photo wells (boxes).  It's super simple!!  LOVE it!!  When I purchased the layout I got a FREE jpg, here it is!!  Now I just print the jpg at 4x8 and my Christmas cards are done!  Whew!!  one more thing off my christmas list!!  YAY!!
