Studio J layouts

I recently played around with the new Studio J digital layouts, soon to be available to the public. Man, were they fun! You don't need any special software, just internet access. I sat on my couch and watched TV and just scrapped away. I could have done it at Starbucks! LOL!

Each layout is $12.95 plus shipping. I know that sounds like a lot but there are several things that help the cost.
  • You don't have to print your own pictures. You just drag and drop them into the layout. I don't know about you, but I do like to use larger than 4x6 photos and printing an 8x10 can be several dollars.
  • You can put as many embellishment on your layout as you'd like. You all know I'm a button-a-holic. I can't do a layout without buttons and those little things add up. With Studio J, I can cover my entire page with buttons and the price doesn't change.
  • You NEVER run out of alphabet stickease! NEVER! That right there is a huge bonus. Not only do you never run out of alphabets, you can resize all of the stickease and use them over and over again.

Here are a few of the layouts I made up.

See how the title and journalling look like they are attached to vellum and then adhered to the page? Yet another fun feature of Studio J!

I chose this layout because not only does it call for an 8x10 but those angles the side pictures are a pain in the tush to cut out. I did this layout once (click here) and swore I wouldn't do it again, no matter how cute I think it is. Not anymore! I can do this layout til the cows come home now.

The letter stickease didn't fit into the title box but you can adjust them just so. Same with the Wild West stickease. It wasn't the right size to go in that spot but I just shrank it a bit for a perfect fit!
These layouts were so much fun and hardly took any time at all.
