Yet, then I fell in love with Studio J and started making training videos. This prompted CTMH to invite me to teach at the Studio J Boot Camp! It was such an amazing experience and finally gave me the confidence to apply for Extravaganza this year. Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll share my projects along with some video tutorials. I love my projects so much that it was really hard to say good-bye to them. I have to wait until July to get them back if I’m not selected to teach…I think the waiting will be more of a disappointment than not being selected. LOL!
I’m really sorry this isn’t a better photo, because this layout looks fantastic in person. I had been thinking about this layout ever since I took these photos of my husband and his friend playing Combat Commander. It is a hybrid layout that I designed in Studio J.
I had always planned to add the word Combat later, so I designed the rest in Studio J. This is what the original file looked like. I then removed the brads and changed the stitching to match the background paper since my plan was to add my own stitching and embellishments.
I did order both copies of the layout, because I knew that I was cutting out an image and adding stitching. I wanted a backup, just in case! Once I received this plain copy, I set to work!
I also had fun discovering a new 3D title technique that I share in the video tutorial above.
