Studio J Layout #5 of 5

This is the final layout I created with my free Studio J layouts from CTMH. This one features my favorite little guy in the whole entire world!!! Liam is such a happy baby, and every minute we spend with him is pure joy!

I added a few extra flourishes on this page because I thought it needed something to set off the journaling. I just love the way the stickease complement the rest of the page. Stay tuned for more projects to be posted in the next few days.

Also...I promise that I will be posting from CTMH Convention in Dallas on a minimum of a daily basis from July 10th to July 15th. Don't be surprised if there are several posts in a day! I do this as a way to help my customers and fellow consultants hear about all of the wonderful news and new products we hear about while we are there. I hope you join me and follow my posts while I'm away! I expect to have a few more posts between now and then too, so stay tuned!

Studio J Layout #4 of 5

Here is another Studio J layout that I recently created. These pictures are from one of our trips to Animal Kingdom a few years ago. I just love going to that park and seeing all of the animals living in natural habitats.

I really enjoyed learning how to make the green ribbon effect on the top of this page. It was a bit frustrating at first, but once we got it figured it out, it wasn't so bad. The ribbon is created using cardstock and typing a series of slashes (/////) into a journaling box on top of the paper. Just another neat way to do things in Studio J! The yellow scallops on both pages are actually a series of circle stickers hidden behind the photo and cardstock. This layout was a lot of fun to put together.

Studio J Layout #3 of 5

This is the third of five layouts that I was able to create using Studio J online scrapbooking from CTMH. These pictures are old, but they are some of my favorites of Steve and I. They are from our first trip to Disney together back in 2005. The pictures are specifically from our first day in Epcot that week. It was a great day and I still remember it like it was yesterday.

I love all of the extra little additions you can put on these pages! The flourishes, the upper and lower border around the pictures, and the stars are all digital stickers. I think they add so much to the pages and they make them look so real. I hope you agree!

Studio J Layout #2 of 5

As promised, here is my second Studio J Layout that I completed with my five free layouts from CTMH. For this layout, we used an interesting technique. This paper actually features the Mischief paper packet, which is a Halloween pack. The unique thing about using Studio J as opposed to traditional paper, is that you can change the colors to meet your needs. If I hadn't told you, I'm sure you would have never known that this is Halloween paper! We also changed stickease that was a piece of wrapped candy, and with a bit of cropping and rotating, created the cupcake papers. The cherry on top of each cupcake is a brad, with a staple for the stem. So cute!!!

I originally struggled to find pictures to match this layout. I really don't have birthday pictures or pictures of little girls, and I wasn't sure what photos to use. After spending some time looking through pictures from events at school, I came across these photos from our Annual Pie in the Face contest. The students raise money for the American Cancer Society to see a teacher get a Pie in the Face. It's a great way to end our Olympic Day festivities, and the students get so excited to see this happen every year.

Once I get the printed copies of this layout, I plan to frame it and give it to this teacher as a memento from that day. The four girls in the photos with her are her nieces. They had the honor of 'delivering' the pies. What fun!

Studio J Layout #1 of 5

Two weeks from tomorrow, I have the honor of attending CTMH Convention in Dallas, Texas. I am so excited that I can hardly wait to go and spend a few days with some amazing people.

As a benefit of going to Convention, CTMH rewarded us with five free Studio J layouts! I just love being part of a company that takes such good care of it's consultants.

This is the first of five layouts I will be sharing over the next few days. These pictures were taken at Convention 2011 in Anaheim, California. This was the first layout I completed from that event, so I guess I need to get to work on that. I'm a bit behind on my scrapping...luckily, Studio J is a great way to get caught up quickly!

I just love the way the pennants add a fun element to the pages. Please click on the layout to see all of the details and journaling on the page. It's amazing what you can do with digital scrapping these days. I hope you enjoy this layout and come back to see another one tomorrow.
