This layout using Florentine paper was from Easter, the neat part about this layout was on the left side my picture was supposed to be vertical and not all my family would fit, so I flipped it and made the photo mat horizontal. On the right side, in the bottom 6 squares, I inserted the same picture and just scaled the pictures up to 300% and made it look like one big photo.  Fun

This is a great way to do scrapbooking without getting out all papers and accessories, only to put it away again.  If you have a computer with pictures downloaded, you can do this.  I will be glad to help you get started.

This layout is my grandson Kolby, who just had his 10th birthday. The paper is Superhero and it was perfect for a boys layout. The stars and ribbon and brads were easy to do.  I love the fact that any of the My Stickease can be enlarged or reduced.  The challenge on this page was creating your own argyle across the bottom of the page.

This is a layout featuring my beautiful oldest grand daughter Abrielle, this was the easiest one to do as far as pictures, the stitching was a learning curve. This layout features Stella paper from our new Idea Catalog.

This layout was the hardest one to come up  with pictures, it was supposed to say "Sweet Baby of mine"  but I didn't have any fresh baby pictures.  So I changed it to Friendships and I changed the background paper to floral because of the all the pink, the other paper had more of an orange to it and it didn't want it to clash.  This paper is our new Pemberly and it was fun the enlarge the flowers and put them behind and in front of each other.

Studio J layouts

I want to share with you the Studio J layouts I made.  CTMH gave us 5 layouts to make with instructions as a learning tool, so we would know how to get the most out of this program.  I learned a lot and I hope you will enjoy the layouts I came up with.
Go to my website under products, Studio J and play for free, see how easy it is.
This is the first of 5, so watch for a new one each day.
