First, I will admit that I am not a digital scrapbooker.  I dabble a bit here and there but I love my traditional scrapbooking and will never give it up.  That being said, I am still extremely excited about Close To My Heart’s new design studio be released in early 2010!  I believe this free (you read it right – free) to use online design studio is going to benefit scrapbookers of all kinds.  This is definately something to check out.  Watch here for more information as it becomes available.  You can find more detailed information HERE at Studio J! It is definately something to get excited about!
