Limited Edition Studio J®

Screenshot (29)

If you follow my Facebook page you know that CTMH is offering a limited edition Express Collection, Yuletide Carol, on Studio J®. The Yuletide Carol collection is only available through February 28, but there is still plenty of time to get your layouts designed. I created 11 double page layouts-THAT’S (22) 12X12 SCRAPBOOK PAGES– in roughly 2 hours! LOVE THAT!!! There is no way I could have traditionally scrapbooked that amount of pages in that length of time!

If you’re unfamiliar with how Studio J® works you can click here for FAQ’s. It is really simple to use and I love the pre-designed layouts that the art department at CTMH has created. I wanted to show you a few of my favorite layouts that I created.

As I mentioned above, this Yuletide Carol collection is an Express Collection. Basically that means the layouts are predesigned. The photo wells {where you drag and drop your photos}, the text boxes, the title boxes, and the embellishments are already laid out for you. But you can make some minor adjustments to help fit your style. For example, I changed up the above layout slightly, I added the “on Christmas morning” title, added the journaling to the lower right hand corner, added stitching & brads to the top of the layout on the right, and added the buttons to the bottom corner on the left side of the layout. You can also delete the “stickers”, add extra photo wells, and other minor adjustments including matting your photos.

I really do hope you will try out Studio J®. There is absolutely no fee to give it a try and no software to download either! You really have nothing to lose!



I’m CRUSHing

So I finally dove into one of My Crush™ Books earlier this year {click here for the original post} and I’ve been creating  CRUSHing ever since!!!

One of my goals for 2015 is to make one new recipe each week. I’m currently working on a mini album using the Year>>Noted Kit to jot down my goals for year and also to include photos as I turn those goals into achievements. BUT  that mini album is too small to include all the recipes I make.

CTMH: Modville Crush Book

I’m dedicating two pages in the My Crush™ Modville Book, but I don’t quite have the second page designed yet! My kiddo’s birthday party is today at school and his birthday party with his grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins is tomorrow in our home. Needless to say there are multiple cupcakes to be baked and a house to clean! I do have some fun ideas including Flip Flaps™ for the second page of this layout….but I’ll have to show you more on that later!!
