If you are a regular Studio J user, you may have noticed some recent improvements.  The most exciting changes give you the ability to:

  • Move, crop, resize, and rotate the pre-placed toggle accents
  • Send backward and bring forward using new buttons on the toolbar
  • Select multiple items and send backward or bring forward as a group
  • Add distressing directly to photos

These new improvements make the Studio J creative process even easier and quicker than it was before.  Log in to Studio J to try out the new functionality!


I think this is my final quick layout and I’m going to have to do a bit more work on future projects.  The picture is of my daughters with their American Girl dolls after they put on a fashion show.  The paper is from the same stack I’ve been using lately with a Michael’s rhinestone flourish, stash ribbon, a bigger brad (Basic Grey?), Studio 18 rhinestones, and Technique Tuesday Technique Tiles Scalloped Baseboards added for embellishing.  Notice that I used a cutting knife to cut the details surrounding the photo mat and tucked my photo underneath.


Here’s another layout I pulled out that just needed photos added.  Who knows why it has taken so long because I love the paper.  It’s from an old CTMH Workshop Kit.  Instead of a circle photo on the first page in the flower, I rounded the corner of all my photos and added the date in the space of the flower.


I pulled this out of my almost-finished layouts pile and added the Kaiser rhinestone title and the Best Occasions rhinestones in the corner.
