Studio J Online Scrapbooking - Adding Jounaling Text right onto your Photo

Good Morning!!

Today's post is all about Studio J online scrapbooking. I've been having a lot of fun getting my 2011 layouts completed using Studio J, and thought this video tutorial might inspire a few of you who are not yet playing with the software. I wanted to make sure you guys remembered a few things:

  1. Studio J is 100% Free to use. You only pay if you decide to order layouts. You can create a FREE account in about 60 seconds, and then play around to see what its all about. 
  2. If you fall in love with Studio J, a membership is a must. You will save so much money by having a membership. I wouldn't lead you astray on this fact. 
  3. If you do decide to get a membership, email me first so I can help you get your membership for half price. 
Enjoy the tutorial, and as always, feel free to email me with any questions. Witha s mile, Tina

October Scrapbooking Club Layout #1: Featuring the DREAMIN' Kit

Good Morning,

For those of you in my monthly scrapbooking clubs, or my 6 page Scrapbooking Workshop kit club, here is one of the layouts featuring the DREAMIN' kit by CTMH. This layot also uses the Opaques Mocha Adhesive Gems. I love the way these look on my creations, and the ease of use.... simply adhere to your layout.

 I also utilized the piercing tool a LOT to add a unique look to the edges and photo matte on this layouts. This process was easy using the Versamat as my guide. It will be even easier once I receive my new CTMH ruler. The reason this ruler is so great is that:

  1. It is clear
  2. It is 14 inches long (perfect for those 12x12 pages)
  3. Comes with guide holes for evenly spaced stitching
  4. Comes with a metal straight edge for craft knife cutting
  5. Has 1" grid marks on it
This has definitely become a "Must-Have" tool for me. As you can see on the layout, without the ruler, I was not able to get the holes pierced precisely even. What a difference that ruler will make... now I am stalking the Fed Ex truck, waiting for it's arrival. Hee hee hee! Enjoy- Tina
