Catch Up on Your Memories
Scrapbook your favorite photos with Express Collections!
Do you remember when all anyone used for their pictures was a film camera? Remember how you were limited to 24 or 36 pictures per roll of film, and you had to make sure you brought plenty of rolls with you everywhere you went, and then had to pay to develop each roll? Nowadays, most digital cameras can easily hold ten times as many pictures on a single memory card.

The rise of digital photography has its pros and cons, of course. It means you can — and probably do — take way more pictures for preserving your memories than you did fifteen years ago. However, it also makes it much easier to get behind in scrapbooking those pictures. A digital problem requires a digital solution, which is where Studio J®’s new Express Collections come in.

Imagine that you’ve hired a professional scrapbooking artist who has designed stacks of layouts, and will let you have the final say on how they look. You get to add your photos to the layouts, write some journaling, perhaps tweak the title or design here and there, and you end up with a beautiful finished layout without doing any of the work! If this sounds like your personal scrapbooking dream, then consider the Express Collections your dream come true!

With Express Collections, you get six themed collections containing ten layouts as well as a front and back cover, designed to give you plenty of easy-to-use options for scrapbooking some of your favorite memories. There are collections for that special little miss or little man in your life, there is a collection to for scrapbooking your travels, a collection for capturing school days, a collection named “All About Me,” and a collection for reviewing the best of the year.

This is the perfect time to catch up on some of those projects you’ve been hoping to catch up on for a long time now. Take advantage of October’s special to get free layouts while you breeze through the collections, preserving memories with just a few clicks of your mouse. Get started today!
