I’m really excited about the Studio J tutorials I’ve made over the past couple of weeks. Studio J is so quick and easy, so it is perfect for beginners. Yet, it is also ideal for those of us with some digital scrapbooking experience and Photoshop skills. I’m going to start making tutorials to help advanced users get the most out of their Studio J membership, as well. Until then, here are the last three videos I created. Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel, createwithamy, and leave me a comment!

I had a great New Year’s Eve with my husband and friends last night. We always share our goals for the new year, but this time we are finding inspiration from the one little word post by Ali Edwards. My guiding words for the year are balance and write. I want to find balance in my life so that I have more time to write!
I created this layout using the new Wings kit that was uploaded to Studio J today. This paper is so beautiful. I have the classic paper kit, too, but haven’t cut into it yet. Here is a video showing how I created the journaling strips and embellished them using staples and thread from buttons.

I’m so excited about sharing this video with you today. The photo editing tools in Studio J are awesome…especially if you don’t have Photoshop or another editing program on your computer. I demonstrate how I can remove an unsightly wrinkle with one of the editing tools built into Studio J…cheapest face lift ever!!!! I’m also happy to report that this video didn’t take me very long to produce and I’m far more relaxed. That makes a big difference in my ability to find my words. 🙂
Comments and suggestions for future topics are appreciated!

I finished the second half of the tutorial tonight! I think I did a much better job with avoiding the “um”s, but there is one really long pause as my mind was searching for a word. I really wanted to say “rotation thingy!” I eventually settled on “rotation symbol”–still not the right word, but at least I didn’t say thingy. 🙂

My login video is a little long winded with an annoying clicking sound. I think I figured out what that was and fixed it, but now I’m “um”ing all over the place! I will get better at this with more practice! This tutorial walks you through uploading photos, choosing a paper kit & pattern, coloring embellishments, and converting a photo well into a journaling box. Now I’m going to record finishing up the layout!
Again, please let me know when you start playing around with Studio J. I currently have one friend who is a member, but I would like to hear from more of you. Send me your questions/needs and I’ll work them in to future video tutorials.

Here is my first Studio J tutorial using Camtasia Studio. There is an annoying clicking sound periodically; I promise to figure out what I was doing and will make it stop. This tutorial simply shows you how to log in. I’ll start posting the good stuff tomorrow! Please let me know when you create an account. These tutorials will be so much easier to create if I feel like I’m talking to real people. 🙂

Close To My Heart is running a contest on Facebook asking us to blog about our favorite product. Are they kidding me? How can I choose a favorite?! I love the My Acrylix stamps and have several favorites, but I couldn’t choose only one. I love the How-To books, but would have a tough time choosing the one that I like best. CTMH has so many paper packs, embellishments, and My Creations products that make me giddy…they can’t ask me to choose only one! Don’t even get me started on the 60 Exclusive Colors…oh, okay, Twilight is my favorite, but there are about 20 other colors that run a close second!
Okay, if I have to choose, I’m going to select the Workshops on the Go kits…talk about a perfect product! Each kit includes a level 2 paper kit, an exclusive stamp set, embellishments, and a how-to guide. It’s everything I love in one coordinating packet…how awesome is that?!

The 2nd page to the layout I posted a couple days ago. Pressed for time, so I’m glad I had this one started.
These photos were taken in Charlottesville, VA in July. I was in DC for a CTMH event and had a week to kill back East before the Folger Shakespeare Library reunion the following weekend. I decided that this was the perfect opportunity to visit the American Shakespeare Center in Staunton, VA. Well, it just so happened that Jan and Eric were at a conference in Charlottesville that same week! Seriously, what are the odds! They let me stay with them for a couple days, and we had a great time exploring the University and town. I love spending time with them and am so glad we shared this experience.

Thank goodness for Studio J! I would never be able to finish a layout a day without it. Well, I guess I can’t say never since I did complete LOAD 2008. My point is that I wouldn’t be able to finish it THIS month without Studio J. The most time consuming part of this 1/2 of the layout was choosing the photos. I’ll add my journaling and the rest of the photos tomorrow.
Now I need to get to bed since I need to get up early to figure out a plan B for my Web Design class until we can get our web server set up. We were eating up too much space on the school hard drive!
