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!
I’m so excited about my Studio J Membership! I just ordered four layouts (8 pages total) for 1/2 off with FREE shipping, FREE page protectors, and FREE JPG files for the web and for printing. Studio J membership seriously rocks!
Although one of the main goals of Studio J is to do layouts quickly, I actually spent a lot of time on these two layouts about Kit. After losing her a week ago, I needed to scrapbook her stories to process my grief. I wanted to take the time to make sure these layouts honored her and expressed my love for her. I think they are pretty amazing…just like my sweet Kit!
I also took a bit of time with this layout earlier in the summer, because I was trying to figure out how to make my own B&T paper with text. This is a direct scraplift from the Studio J website! I posted a screen shot of it earlier, but now you can see the details.
Now, this layout is what Studio J is all about! I modified my old, out of focus photos in Studio J. I used the embellishments that came preloaded on the page and simply added a few My Stickease as a title and to cover up a Diet Pepsi can…LOL! This layout took me less than 1/2 hour and most of that time was spent editing my photos.
If you want some of this scrappy goodness for yourself, let me know and I’ll hook you up with a Studio J membership! I’m going to demonstrate it at the THS FBLA Scrapbooking Crop on October 23rd; I can’t wait to share Studio J with everyone I know!
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.
Close To My Heart’s Studio J will launch in a few months, and I can’t wait to share it with everyone I know! Since I attended Leadership, I was given early access to Studio J but have only now had a chance to play with it. I placed my first order a few minutes ago and thought I would share my LOs here.
So, what the heck is Studio J?! It is a FREE online scrapbooking studio. It’s like digital scrapbooking, but not nearly as time consuming, expensive, or difficult to use. You’ll be able to try the full, web-based program through my CTMH website when Studio J launches in March. Until then, enjoy this little sneak peek!
Good news–if you are a digi-scrapper, you can import PNG files to drop in the photo wells like I did here with Katie Pertiet’s Postage Frame Clusters!
If you know nothing about digital scrapbooking, never fear…Studio J was designed just for you! The following LOs were designed in a flash; choosing my photos and writing my journaling was the longest part of the process.
