No Limits, Part 1

There are seriously a million things I should be doing right now…like eating breakfast…but I can’t tear myself away from Studio J!  Here is the first 1/2 of a No Limits layout I created this morning.  I used a free layered Photoshop file I downloaded from the Internet ages ago and clipped my photos to it.  I then turned off all the layers except for the photos and journaling strips.  I saved it as a PNG file (12×12 @ 300dpi) and uploaded it to Studio J.  I dropped it into the No Limits layout which defaulted to a white background.  Text boxes to the rescue!  I recreated the original Photoshop file by drawing boxes and sending them behind my photos.  I even came up with a tricky way to mimic a drop shadow behind the two paper pieces behind the photos.  I’ll make a quick tip video about it later.  Just thought I would share how awesome this No Limits “pattern” is…it really makes me happy that I can use all of CTMH’s licensed images but place my photos wherever I  want them!  Woo hoo!

My adventures as a CTMH consultant began in April of 2007. My goal was simply to meet my minimums so that I could enjoy the consultant discount. Little did I know that my passion for the products and teaching scrapbooking and stamping techniques would lead me to so many new friendships. I've had the good fortune to travel to a variety of CTMH events and was even asked to teach at the Studio J Boot Camp in 2011, Convention Extravaganza in 2012, and on the main stage at Convention 2015.
