Fall Hooligans Studio J Layout

This layout just cracks me up. My boys get pretty creative with their free time. Sometimes you want to know and..sometimes you don't. This was one of those times where pictures just showed up on the camera as I was going through and downloading them to archive and set up for scrapbooking. (With children who love to play photographer, this happens quite a bit to me.)

Apparently the youngest had made quite a mess out of his breakfast cereal as he is want to do on occasion. Rather than get upset at the mess, Dad decided to get even! He brought out the Dust Buster to zip it in a snippet! This was in the middle of the summer, but this paper with it's cute monsters and mayhem seemed appropriate to document these Hooligans!

All digital, this layout whipped up in a jiffy with Studio J. To learn more, contact me today!

Warm wishes,

New Studio J Layouts

I just got back several Studio J orders and wanted to share what I've been up to. I really love this online software! With being pregnant our budget has been a little tighter as we prepare for our new baby boy this fall. As a member I get 50% off my printed projects, free sheet protectors and free shipping. It's cheaper than bying a paper pack! I haven't had a lot of time to spend in the craft room and Studio J is fast and fun! I've really been able to catch up on my scrapbooking by using the website, especially since I switched to a digital camera several years ago. No wondering if you've got the right size enlargement for your page, just drag and drop as you can see in the Grandma's Garden layout.
Enlargments are no worries with no extra expenses at the print shop, or preplanning your order to get the right photo in the right size. Plus, if I change my mind, I can just drag it to another sized photo well and drop it in! Grandma's Garden took me about 20 minutes to complete. I wanted a fun title for it, so I spent some time adjusting the size of the My Stickease and the layering to get the look I wanted, but the embelishments I used are just the ones suggested (every layout has this option for super quick scrappin'!)
When my sister became pregnant with her first child, I wanted to preserve the memories for her with our family as they live far away and we aren't able to visit often. She knew she was having a baby boy and wanted a rodeo theme for the nursery. I was in luck for the scrapbook with Sarsaparilla. This paper pack retired a few years ago and I've run out of it, but with Studio J, I can use it again and again! Didn't buy the My Stickease? No problem! Studio J has both sheets available to use as many as you want. And if you love one of the images and want to use it over and over again.. you can! No need to purchase a full package to repeat an image, just drag and drop!

If you're interested in learning more about Studio J, contact me today to set up a free consultation. We'll play with the software and even build a layout or two and there's no obligation to buy. It's okay - have fun with it!

Warm wishes,
