Get {{FLIRTY}} wit it...

Well...I'm guessing you're here today because you want to see some NEW {{{FABULOUS}}}PRODUCTS from CTMH's 2012 Autumn/Winter Idea Book.  Let me tell you, that with more than 50 consultants participating in the hop, you can be assured that inspiration is just around the corner.  In fact you might want to go ahead and sign up to be a CTMH Consultant so you can get these FABULOUS new products at a ridiculously GREAT DEAL!!!

If you've come from Beth's Blog, you're on the right track...keep on hopping 'till you get back around to where you started.  I hope you find TONS of inspiration for all those NEW products found in the 2012 Autumn/Winter Idea Book.
Here we go...

I decided to do a couple of projects featuring the NEW products for several reasons...one of which was I couldn't make up my mind what I wanted to use and the second was that I had to hold baby "L" and working on the computer using Studio J was very EASY to do vs. sitting at my scrapbook table.

I started off with the layout featuring my baby boy and my baby girl (sure wish this picture had a bow on her head but I love it just the same!).  He has had to do some adjusting to not being the baby anymore but he's taking it like a champ and LOVES her a lot!!!  So much in fact that he tries to help a little too much and putting her down is like a free-for-all for him...lol.
Here's the Studio J layout I did using the NEW Flirty Paper Packet...let me just begin by saying I am {{{in LOVE}}} with this paper packet and even more so on Studio J because I can do things like this...the subtle black and white background with the pops of color!

I'll be doing a picture tutorial on it in the next day or so...be sure to check back to find out how to do this layout...step by step!
-------------------------------------------------
And...here's my other project also featuring Studio J and Flirty but in a different way...

I decided to try my hand at making cards using Studio J...the idea has been floating around in  my head for months and some things still need to be figured out but I will cross that when I actually get one printed.

Here's what 2 cards on a 12x12 layout look like...once printed you will simply cut them in half thus having two 6x6 cards.
(click on the photo to see all the detail...especially the "handmade 2012" {{pictured at the top of the page upside down}} that will print on the back center)

Here's the inside of the card...which I would probably make using "real" products so that it will be easy to write a little note and sign. Our pages print with a glossy finish so you wouldn't want your pen to smear.  If you're lucky to have a printer at home that will handle 12x12 sheets of paper, you could run a Bamboo piece of cardstock in the printer and print the front and inside with no problem at all. 



Thanks for stopping by...don't forget to stop back by mid-week to see my tutorial on the layout and the the cards!
Keep the hop going by visiting Kristine's Blog next.

Isn't it great how Studio J lets us craft at our computers? I love your idea of using it to make cards; I can't wait to see how you make it work.
