Just a few more of my Studio J endeavors this month...

Good Morning~

Are you ready to see a few more Studio J online scrapbooking layouts? I know my card makers might be getting antsy so I promise to post some photos of cards made from NEW product in the NEW Spring & Summer Idea book very very soon. Stay tuned to see what I came up with for the "Pemberly" papers.

In the meantime, enjoy these layouts. I will share a few unique thing about each...
This layout features a 7" x 12" photo.... not one many people have printed off.
I also added my journaling right over the B&TP at the bottom of page one.

I like this layout because I incorporated Smoothie cardstock even though it is not part of the Fanfare kit (which is retired in real life, but not in the cyber world- wink wink!).
With Studio J, you can customize the colors of any paper or cardstock you use. 

This layout simply shows a lot of photos on one layout. This is page 4 of a series of layouts so extra journaling wasn't really needed. I love the pictures of the kids looking at the whale through the glass. 

Enjoy everyone ~ Tina

Online Scrapbooking ... I created 20 pages in no time at all!

Good Morning,

More layouts I created in my online scrapbooking endeavors last week.  In these layouts I rotated the orientation on each page to create my own unique layout that fit with the photos. 
This is so simple to do in the Studio J program. CTMH has done a great job of creating a step by step process that even the beginner scrapbooker or computer challenged person can have success using. This includes several layouts that you simply click to use, and then modify, rotate etc, with another click. Easy peasy!!  Enjoy!

Online Scrapbooking - Another layout to share

Good Morning everyone,
As I promised, I am going to continue sharing some of my online scrapbooking projects created in my Studio J account. To see more detail, simply click on the photo to enlarge. These two layouts are dear to my heart and took me three years to finally scrapbook... but once I did, I felt so good.

One unique thing about these two layouts is that they will be mixed- and matched in my album. You see, I used the cover page layout in studio J to create two pages that are simply one large photo. When I add the pages to my album, I will add one with each of the first layout here. I would never print an 11x11 photo, but this layout needed that kind of emphasis. 

I also used the TEXT module to add words right on top of the photo.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me

Studio J Online Scrapbooking

Good Morning~

Here is another layout I just ordered in my Studio J online scrapbooking account. I love this layout for several reasons:

  1. I generally would not print off such a large photo to scrapbook but, with Studio J I simply dragged my photo to the photo well and the software made it fit.
  2. I love how I was able to add my journaling to the top and sides of the photos simply by changing the orientation in my Text Editing tool.
  3. I love how I was able to customize the text and place my title at the bottom of the page, using the QUICK TITLE tool in the Alphabets My Stickease. I then sized them to fit the space simply by clicking the slider bar up and down... so simple and yet such great results.

A perfect 10 - Buy 9 layouts in Studio J, get one free!

Come and play in Studio J, for free!

My current Studio J layouts....

Hey everyone~

We are enjoying a nice bit of winter sunshine here in Oregon in the form of snow... and since we do not get it very often, we LOVE it.  With that said, I've been inside scrapbooking a fair amount too as I personally don't last that long playing in it, like my boys do. 

Today I ordered 20 two-page 12x12 layouts in Studio J to take advantage of the current buy 10, but only pay for 9 special. I thought I would share a couple of these layouts since CTMH has already emailed me the jpeg's to them. I will share a few more all week so check back from more Studio J inspiration.
With a smile~ Tina
