Scrap in a Flash-Personalize with Studio J

I am loving this video series put out by Close to My Heart that essentially gives you a detailed tutorial of Studio J. This video shows you how to take a preformatted layout in Studio J and make it your own. Even I have picked up on a few capabilities that I was unaware Studio J can do. If you have the Fanfare paper and like to scrapbook traditionally scrapbook you might still want to check out the video to give some great ideas.

Simply Spring

I love spring. The new blooms on the flowers, green grass, and birds chirpping seem to make life a little more vibrant after months of dull hues and cold air. It seems that all of my friends are pregnant many of them delivering in a matter of weeks. Instead of doing the typical baby items on the card I wanted to use "Peter" Rabbit from Sensational Season (D1454). I was really drawn to keep the lines crisp and the card simple. The blues and greens just make me want to breathe in the fresh air. Thanks for looking.

Heart 2 Heart-Bunny Hop
I decided to add this card to the Bunny Hop that Heart 2 Heart is doing. This is my first hop. I am always so inspired by all of the ladies that participate in this blog. I encourage you to go to the blog and click through all the links they have available so you can be inspired too. Happy Spring!!

Studio J step-by-step

I promised a wonderful step-by-step video to help you get started with Studio J and here it is. If you decide to start scrapbooking digitally don't forget to go over to my website to create your account.

While you are there don't forget April's Studio J special which allows you to receive Free embellishments when purchasing 10 Studio J layouts.

Here is one of my recent Studio J creations. One of my favorite things to do with Studio J is to use the layouts with enlarged photos that way I get the most bang for the buck. If I was creating a traditional layout I would have to pay $8 to enlarge to an 8 x 10, additional photo cost, paper, and embellishments; but with a Studio J membership I am paying $6.50 for a 2-page layout, Free JEPG, and Free shipping.
