Happy Holiday Card Set: Project Inspiration Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book

Time saving gift ideas

Timesaving Gift Ideas

The gift-giving season can be an uplifting time of merriment and joy... but it can also feel a bit hectic. It’s nice to know you can count on Studio J® to help you give meaningful gifts that don’t require a lot of time or money. Here are a few ideas to simplify your life and save time for both the giver and the receiver.

  • Make one family layout and print multiple copies for everyone. (Time: 15–45 minutes) With Studio J, printing extra copies of a layout is as simple as changing the quantity on the checkout screen. Or, if you prefer, create one layout, then copy it into a new project as many times as you like and customize it for each recipient.
  • Give a Studio J 5-pack along with a Quick Pic™ album. (Time: 5 minutes) Since a 5-pack includes free layouts, free shipping, and free Memory Protectors®, it’s everything they’ll need to create a finished album!
  • Present a loved one with a 3-month Studio J membership. (Time: 5 minutes) A 3-month membership costs just $30 US / $33 CAN and is the perfect way to help someone “get their feet wet” with Studio J and give them complete access to a product you love. Combine it with a 5-pack to make it an extra-special stocking stuffer!
  • Give a gift certificate for one-on-one Studio J training. (Time: 35 minutes) With Studio J, you can create two 2-page layouts in just 30 minutes. Give a gift certificate for a 30-minute session of one-one-one training where you help them create two layouts. Once you’ve shown them how fast and easy it is to scrapbook the Studio J way, they’ll be excited to create more pages on their own!
So put on the holiday music, pour yourself some eggnog, and pull out your holiday gift list. Studio J is a great way to help you give the gift of memories—without taking much time!

You can now order your Christmas cards through me, just in time for Christmas.
You choose: I make them and send to you completed- $2.00 each or 6 for $10.00
     or          : I give you all the materials stamped and cut, you assemble $1.50 each or 6 $8.00
To assemble you will need adhesive and foam squares (foam squares are optional)

 Each card is sprayed with a shimmer spray and then glitter is added to the snowflakes and
the snow on the ground under the tree, snowman and deer.  It is a very sweet looking card and
can be done in traditional Christmas colors or the new fad of purples and blues like you see
above.  Prefer the red and green?  I can do that too.   Contact me  by email with your order or
call me at home   (715) 924-2722.  Thanks and have a Happy Holiday!

Christmas Card Box

Make this adorable box for you Christmas cards and contact information and have everything you need to send out your holiday wishes at the tip of your fingers.  Or make the box and a handful of cards and give as a gift!  Make it and show it off by putting the cards you received in the box and set out for visitors to admire.  No matter what you choose to do with this box and card set, you will be filled with warm holiday cheer, year after year.


Take those gift cards up a notch

 All 5 pictures on the left are the outside of a gift card holder/card.  The picture below is what the inside looks like.  This makes a perfect way to give those gift cards with a little style.  The "for you" is where the gift card slides in.  Some tie with ribbon, the snowman closes by folding the flap under the snowman and the last one closes with a button!  All are adorable.  All are very useful and all can be seen and purchased this Tuesday Nov. 8th at the Rice Lake Library where I will be also helping 15 lucky visitors make a very special Christmas card.  Join me from noon till 5 to make one for your self, FREE!  See you there.

Time to shake things up a bit

Here are two more shaker cards.  The first one is an ornament hanging from a tree and the second is Joy.  The pull tab on top of both cards allows you to get the candy out without damage to the card.  You can also put another choice of candy in it, here I have mini- M&M's, YUM!  Card and gift all in one!  Comment and let me know which you like the most, one of these or the snowmen two posts back.  Thanks, Theresa

Halloween art projects

Here are some of my Halloween projects that I made.  Some were sold right away and I did not have time to take a picture of them.  The Happy Halloween on the far left and the Enjoy in the front are both treat containers and so easy to make.  The Wicked Halloween is an easel card.  The circle Witch card I made using the cricut cutting machine and the New Art Philosophy cartridge from Close To My Heart.  The tags on the cards along with the treat box in the front right were also made using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  If you have a cricut and dont use it much because you are afraid of it, you are just like I was.  Contact me and I will help you learn the little tricks to making this the best tool you have for scrapbooking.  If you love your cricut but dont have the Art Philosophy cartridge with its 700 images yet,  you need to get one!  Contact me today or check out my website to order on line.  Thanks for looking and have a super day.

Here are some very fun cards that I made. They are a great way to send a card and gift all in one!  The sweet treats are a special touch that your family or friends will love.  The pull tab on the top allows you access to the treats without destroying the card so you can REFILL.  I made one for Halloween and sold it to the first person to see it!
Asking price $5.00                                EMAIL ME
Size is 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 plus pull tab
The first one is a snowman with blue and yellow M&M's inside, happy on the outside and holidays on the inside.
The far left below is a Santa with all colors of M&M's inside, with Merry Christmas and Happy New Year on the outside and Joy is not in things; it is in Us.  Richard Wagner.  the last one below is another snowman with only red and green M&M's inside, snowfriends on the outside and Snowfriends come and go with the seasons, but Real Friends last forever.
YOU MUST SEE THESE ADORABLE cards.  They will be at the Rice Lake Library on Nov. 8th from noon till 5:00 along with other completed projects.  Come get yours then.  First 15 visitors will get a free Christmas card compliments of the Rice Lake Library.  
Orders will be taken and filled starting Nov. 11 thru Dec. 10th.  Please make your order as early as possible to insure your order will be filled.

My youngest son is now a Sailor!

What a handsome young man he is!  We went to see him graduate from Navy Boot camp October 14th.  There were thousands of people there.  Each recruit was allowed 4 visitors.  There were 861 graduates so that makes the visitors about 3000!  It was a very special graduation because the announcer said that this was the exact same day they had their first graduation from Navy Boot camp (in a different building than what we were in) and it was also 100 years to that very date!  They graduate a class EVERY weekend of the year.  How awesome is that!  So if you do the math here is what you have:  Average graduating class is about 930.  Times that by 52 weeks per year for 100 years and you have a whopping 4,836,000 men and women who have graduated from our US Navy!!!
Now more about Brandon.  He was very excited about the Navy before he went in and now he is even more excited.  Boot camp did not seem to hard on him, but we did do a lot of mental preparing for it too.  He is still his fun loving, tender and friendly self.  His focus will shift now because, "Now that boot camp is done, I can think about my future!"  He made it, he passed, he endured!  Now life begins.
At his graduation there were the four allowed: Ron and I, his sister Laura and Brandon's father Craig.  On Saturday we spent most of the day together.  We played GLOW IN THE DARK miniature golf and have a blast.  Although he was free to visit with us on Sunday also we were not able to meet.  We were leaving early that morning and Brandon did not want to miss mass so we parted way on Saturday night. 
Through this whole process I did not feel I needed to shed a tear but when I realized that he will be going on a ship soon, I started to cry.  Tears of joy and pride but also because he could be on the other side of the world in a few months and we could loose track of each other. 
My son had two very nice surprises for me.  The first was a very large package of pictures that he ordered for me of the pose above and of his division.  They were on our doorstep when we got home.  The second was that he now has a phone and we can talk as much as we want.  Snail mail sure was discouraging during boot camp.  He also has internet access, which he did not have before.
As you can see, I could go on and on but I will spare you.  I would like to post some other wonderful things happening in my life.  Thank you very much for stopping and visiting.... see you again real soon!  Theresa
