My First CTMH Studio J Layout

In three more weeks I will be in Dallas, super excited awaiting the first day of Close to My Heart Convention’s Leadership session.  Can’t wait!  I absolutely love everything that is Close to My Heart.  Well almost everything.  I must admit that I have been slow to work with Studio J, our version of digital scrapbooking.   I have played around it, but never completed and purchased a layout. Shame on me, huh?

So imagine my surprise when I receive an email from Corporate with a create and take assignment making five 2 page layouts using Studio J.  Not one, but five.  Well I was game to try and I found out that Studio J is F-U-N to use and E-A-S-Y and so, so C-R-E-A-T-I-V-E!  I am sold on Studio J and cannot wait to get caught up on my years of pictures that I have not scrapbooked.

Here is my first Studio J layout.  Ta da!


This layout is my sweet granddaughter, Kaitlyn, on her first birthday.  I love the colors and learned so much while making this layout.  The techniques I learned were:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Deleting unneeded photo wells
• Using text boxes to cover up portions of the pattern
• Cropping My Stickease® borders to make ribbon streamers

I will be sharing my second layout tomorrow.
