Motivational Monday – A Sketch from Studio J

School Template from Studio JStudio J is the digital scrapbook program from Close to my Heart. What’s that you say? You don’t like digital scrapbooking so who cares about Studio J?  Let me share with you how Studio J can help the traditional scrapbooker… LOTS of Sketches! Take this example for instance.  What I wanted was a layout that showcased my two grandsons, James & Kyler Seely at the 2014 Science Fair at their school in San Antonio Texas. What is nice (and worked perfectly) is I can start with this idea, and build it however I want to.  Take a look at the finished layout below the Studio J layout. I moved the two journaling strips to the left to balance the pages and journal the details.

Both boys received the first place Using Studio J as a Sketchaward in their respective grades.  I am so glad there is a grade between them or this could have gotten really ugly 🙂

I removed all the small photos that were under the main photo on the right, added the boys names, ( I should have paid more attention to the size of Kyler’s name. but you get the idea.

Studio J is very versitile for the inexperienced digital scrapbooker that wants to learn, and a great source of inspiration for the traditional scrapbooker.

An extra bonus with Studio J is that it has all the paper packs going back to it’s inception so if you have an old paper pack, you can get some ideas on how to use it.

Do you do digital or traditional scrapbooking. Leave a comment below and let me know!
