Take My Breath Away with Magnifique

Of all the Studio J layouts I have done recently this is my hands down favorite. These pictures of my family could have sat on my computer for months (or longer) even though I absolutely LOVE them. Finding the time to sit down and focus on creating a traditional layout is a challenge with Blake constantly making my life "colorful" (for instance, finding a rogue red dry erase marker and painting his entire room during nap time). With Studio J, I get to enjoy having these beautiful photos and sweet memories scrapbooked in mere minutes and I can even have extra copies printed to share with the Grandparents with just a click of my mouse.

Studio J Versatility & Photo Fun

click on image to see it larger

Originally, I created this layout with the Let's Get Together paper packet. It is a darling packet full of spring goodness in Cranberry, Sweet Leaf, Sunny Yellow. While I really liked the paper packet, I wasn't super happy with the final results paired with these photos and theme. Rather than starting over, I simply decided to go full cardstock in the colors that matched the rest of my "building the house" layouts. I love that I didn't have to waste even a scrap of paper.

Studio J: Did you know?
  • Photos are always the right size. No need to worry that your printed photos are the wrong size for the layout. Simply drag your photo into the photo well and voila it is the right size.
  • No need for expensive photo editing software. Studio J provides excellent photo enhancing tools such as brightness/contrast, convert to black and white, adjust hue/saturation, sharpen. Other snazzy tools include the airbrush, blemish/glare/redeye remover, toothbrush to whiten teeth and the wrinkle softener to take off years. 
  • Easily convert a photo-well to a journaling box or a journaling box to a photo-well.

Catching Up Studio J Style

Traditional (good 'ol paper and scissors) scrapbook layouts take me on average 2 hours or more. Studio J layouts take me a whopping 20 minutes - some even faster! That means in the same time I would create about 1 traditional layout, I can accomplish 6 with Studio J.

I don't know about you, but it seems that I am always limited on time. Yet, I still want to be able to scrapbook our important family memories, such as the one shown above (the day the foundation was poured for our dream home). Studio J is allowing me to catch up, leaving me more time to enjoy creating special traditional layouts.

Studio J: Did you know?
  • Studio J is as simple as ...
    • Upload the photos you want to scrapbook. If you don't have your photos but want to play, you can skip this step and upload them later.
    • Choose your desired paper packet. You'll even find some of our favorite retired paper packets such as Simple Pleasures and Giggles and Grins. Plus, you'll find special paper packets not available in the Idea Book. There are currently 61 available paper packets.
    • Select a layout. Right now there 57 layout patterns available to members and 32 to non-members. Then select a "kit mix" which a suggested placement of cardstock and paper using the pattern that can easily be changed while creating your layout. Expand on your options by rotating and flipping pages
    • Add your photos, titles, journaling and embellishments. It's as easy as drag and drop!
    • Purchase your custom processed layouts. Close To My Heart uses a silver-halide process, considered the highest standard in the photo developing industry, to provide a 100+ year quality.
