I'm working on catching up with all of the layouts I have failed to create. Studio J makes this so easy. I can make 3 to 4 double layouts in just about 2 hours and have them totally complete, with titles, journaling, photos, and impressive embellishments.
Studio J also allows me to resize my Stickease. See the Stickease that comes with a "My Reflections" pack is better than stickers because they are heavier card weight. But the Stickease that comes with Studio J is even better because I can reuse each sticker again and again on the layout and even change the sizes of the images.
I love that I can place brads and ribbons whereever I please and I can resize them, too. I can also place my titles and journaling anywhere, even across photos. OR in this case, place my title in a light colored font over a dark cardstock base. That's possible in normal paper scrap-booking, but rather difficult unless I want to stick with plain cream colors or white.
Another thing that was important with this layout is the fact that I could use all of my pictures. Many of them wouldn't process well because the images were too small, but on this digital layout, I could focus on the small images and easily bring them into focus.
Also, I have become a member of Studio J. For a yearly fee, I can get all of my layouts for half-price, and I can get 1 order per month for no shipping. I also get large and small jpegs of my layouts so I can post them here or print them out again. It makes the membership SO worthwhile!
Contact me if you have any questions about any of the things above.

My favorite things in the world are a showery day, a warm cup of cider, a great idea and an empty notepad, or two or three - heck, just get me a whole case of the suckers, the pink ones! :) When my mom challenged me to do what I loved, I reclaimed my desire to write and can't stand to go a day, now, without spending some time with a pen in my hand. I'm not sure where God is leading me on this journey, but I asked Him to give me the desires of my heart and trust that He has for a purpose.
