Studio J Fun!

Here is another Studio J layout I recently created.  As many of you know, the CTMH Convention is held every summer.  This year the event is taking place in Dallas, Texas.  The Corporate gave all consultants attending the assignment to create 5 Studio J layouts.  It was really cool because they provided the lesson plans for us.  We had the option of following the lesson plan OR creating our own designs.
Above is the 3rd layout of the assignment (I shared the other 2 last week) I created.  The neat thing about this layout is I used the "Lucky" kit!  Studio J allows you to change the colors of the B&T and Cardstock papers!  It also allows you to enlarge stickease images, add journaling boxes and or photo wells.  The options are AMAZING!

Below is a great video that will teach you another fabulous technique.  After viewing the video hop on over to my website (amy.myctmh.com) and play!  The cost is free!  If you would like to attend a Studio J hands on class just let me know.  I would love to get together and guide you in creating you own Studio J layouts!

MIA!

Greetings and Happy Official First Day of Summer!

So sorry I have been Missing In Action this past week.  I have been hard at work creating projects with fun and exciting NEW products that will be released in the Autumn/Winter Idea Book in August.  I was one of the lucky consultants chosen to teach a class at our annual convention in July.  CTMH sent me a box full of fabulous products that I, unfortunately,can not share with you until the new Idea Book goes live on August 1st.  And then last Thursday I had oral surgery so I have been recovering from that, as well.

Today I woke up and am starting to feel much,much better.  I am hoping the worse is behind me now!  Anyway, I did want to remind you about the wonderful "Stampaganza" campaign that is happening all month long.  There is still over a week left to take advantage of this fantastic, money-saving deal!  Order two stamp sets and get a third absolutely FREE!  NOw that is a DEAL!



Below are two Studio J layouts I recently created.  I hear many individuals say they don't have time to scrapbook or my die-hard scrappers say they really don't make the time to scrap during the summer months because they are so busy enjoying being outside and vacationing, sports, swim meets, etc.  Studio J is the PERFECT solution.  You can create layouts in as little as 5 minutes Or spend more time and experiment with more advance techniques.  There is no cleaning up when you are done and you can share your jpegs on your facebook page, twitter, blog or just email them to family and friends.  Why not gather a group of friends and have everyone bring their laptop and you can meet at someone's house or even at Panerea Bread or Coldstone Creamery and create all while enjoying friends and a cool drink or snack.  Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.  Hop on over to my website and try Studio J for FREE (if you have not done so already).  You can play for as long as you want and it won't cost a thing until you want to purchase you creations!

Female Relationships
They Teach It at Stanford
In an evening class at Stanford the last lecture was on the mind-body connection - the relationship between stress and disease. The speaker (head of psychiatry at Stanford) said, among other things, that one of the best things that a man could do for his health is to be married to a woman whereas for a woman, one of the best things she could do for her health was to nurture her relationships with her girlfriends. At first everyone laughed, but he was serious.
Women connect with each other differently and provide support systems that help each other to deal with stress and difficult life experiences.
Physically this quality “girlfriend time" helps us to create more serotonin - a neurotransmitter that helps combat depression and can create a general feeling of well being. Women share feelings whereas men often form relationships around activities. They rarely sit down with a buddy and talk about how they feel about certain things or how their personal lives are going. Jobs? Yes. Sports? Yes. Cars? Yes. Fishing, hunting, golf?  Yes. But their feelings? Rarely.
Women do it all of the time. We share from our souls with our sisters/mothers, and evidently that is very good for our health.   He said that spending time with a friend is just as important to our general health as jogging or working out at a gym.
There's a tendency to think that when we are "exercising" we are doing something good for our bodies, but when we are hanging out with friends, we are wasting our time and should be more productively engaged—not true.
In fact, he said that failure to create and maintain quality personal relationships with other humans is as dangerous to our physical health as smoking!
So every time you hang out to schmooze with a gal pal, just pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for doing something good for your health! We are indeed very, very lucky. Sooooo… let's toast to our friendship with our girlfriends. Evidently it’s very good for our health.
