I don’t know how you feel about it, but I don’t think there are enough hours in the day. For about ten years after college, I could live on 4 hours of sleep a night, but things change once you hit your mid-thirties. I still don’t get enough sleep, so I can’t be bothered with a lot of pre-planning when it comes to my scrapbooking time. When I have a minute, I want to get right down to crafting. I certainly don’t want to spend time figuring out what size or color my photos need to be, place an order, and then go pick them up or wait for them to be mailed to me. Life is too short, people! With Studio J, I have the perfectly sized photo every time!

I was so inspired by Jeanette Lynton

Why I’m Thankful for Studio J #1—Text Boxes
I’ve talked about text boxes a lot in my tutorials, but this simple tip bears repeating, because it makes Studio J such a versatile program. I can use text boxes to create journaling strips, ribbon clusters, change the shape of my layout, and mat photos. I can rotate text boxes, send them behind photos and other text boxes, and layer as many as I want. I can fill text boxes with vellum, cardstock, and patterned paper. I can even leave my text boxes transparent so that I can place text or distressing on top of photos. Text boxes are our friends, so watch this quick tip and then log in to Studio J to try it yourself!
