Face lift courtesy of Studio J’s wrinkle tool!

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!


LOAD #6

The challenge was to create a filmstrip on the page.  I ran with prompt and created a layout that explains why I love photography.


LOAD #3

Posted on in CTMH, Scrapbooking 1 Comment

I went classic style for today’s Layout a Day!  The challenge was to focus on photography and create a layout with a photo that tells the story…no journaling!  As I’m in a bit of a journaling mood, this was actually a real challenge.  Yet, once I remembered this photo…I’ve been wanting to scrapbook it since 2008…it was easy.  The photo and the title say it all!  I’m a little bummed that the weather is so crappy today, because this layout (including the photo) are much more vibrant in real life.  My picture doesn’t do it justice.  This layout was inspired by a layout in the Summer 2009 Idea Book.  I used Daydream Level 2, Blush ink, Fresh Shapes DE, Booksmart DE, Clear & Bitty Sparkles.

This is a little note to myself to remind me that I don’t have to complete all of Lain’s daily challenges for LOAD 2010.  I had a great time doing it this weekend, but my time is at a premium during the week, so that’s when I’ll go back to completing some of my partially created layouts.  I have so many that I want to finish, so that is my personal challenge this month.  Anything extra is simply a bonus.


Family Photos

Posted on in CTMH, Scrapbooking, Studio J Leave a comment

We had a fantastic family photo shoot in Moscow at the end of July, and the CD with all the photos arrived today! I’ve been having fun playing with Photoshop and then importing the photos into Studio J. My 12-month Studio J membership starts next month, and you can be sure that I’m going to take full advantage of all the member benefits…such as FREE shipping once a month! I can’t wait! My goal is scrapbook at least one Studio J layout a week since they are so quick and easy…assuming I don’t spend a ton of time in Photoshop first. These quick layouts will (1) allow me to capture memories I don’t ever want to forget, (2) help me to scrapbook more frequently, and (3) motivate me to use my classic supplies since I’ll be in a scrapbooking groove.

In case you don’t know, Studio J is FREE! That’s right…FREE! Log in through my website and try it for yourself. You can test your photos against different paper packets and sketches before scrapbooking with your classic supplies. You don’t pay a thing unless you want to purchase the layouts you created. If you love it as much as I do, let me know and I’ll share the membership options with you.


Live Out Loud!

We had such an incredible time doing this photo shoot in Seattle in July of 2006! I made poor Katie jump in front of the Space Needle over and over again until I got the perfect shot. I would have preferred if she had been slightly to the right in the photo, but I wasn’t going to make her do it again. Fun times!

Again, this is a sketch from Design Your Life at BPS and I’m using You Rock papers.

I’ve been having a great time taking a free Photoshop course over at JessicaSprague.com. I’m learning so much and really enjoying the delivery method. Here are the photos I have modified thus far. Click on the thumbnail to see a larger photo.
