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 have one final layout to show you that I created using Studio J®. CTMH is well known for being a source of great inspiration! The artwork department is amazingly talented and the same rings true when it comes to Studio J®!! When I went to the Studio J® log in page I saw a layout I knew I wanted to recreate!!

I couldn’t find the layout design in the gallery, but no worries! Studio J® offers No Limits. You can either print a 12″ x 12″ photo or you can create a layout from scratch which is what I did here!!!
