Part of our registration included FIVE FREE STUDIO J layouts! Corporate sent us step by step instructions to complete these 5 layouts, each one featured a different technique. Being the last minute procrastinator that I am, as these needed to be submitted by April 18th....I started them on April 17th! I spent a day just focusing on these layouts--and generally Studio J layouts do NOT take me that long to do. But as I was following instructions and trying new techniques, it did take me a little longer.
I'm going to go through each layout to tell you what the techniques were:
1-Florentine Kit: using text boxes to add card stock, using a single photo in multiple photo wells, layering My Stickease to form a single image, and using multiple text boxes to mix fonts
2-Superhero Kit: creating your own argyle B&T paper (I skipped this in the interests of time), customizing kit by adding different colors (also skipped since I didn't do the argyle), and rotating a page.
3-Cruisin' Kit: using quick-title tool to create a border, clustering My Stickease behind page elements, adding photo mats
4-Stella Kit: frame photo with stitching, cluster embellishments and My Stickease
5-Pemberley Kit: distressing photos with text boxes ( I skipped this), splitting My Stickease across both pages, using an embellishment to create a border.
