Life is Unforgettable - Studio J Express

This Studio J layout is created with the new Studio J Express Layouts. It's so easy and so fun to create with Studio J and now it's even quicker! (click on the picture above to see this layout full screen.)

Places we've been can hold as many memories as the people we were with. The photos I've used in this layout are not anything special but they remind me of a place and of people I will always remember.  

So get started now! Take a look through the 6 new Studio J Express Collections - find a layout with colors that go with your photos - download the photos - you can leave the default title or you can edit the text in the title & on the tags if you want to. Next add your journaling - then decide if you want to add embellishments. I decided  to embellish with the photo hanger and ribbon and the photo clips. I also applied the Sepia filter to the 3 small photos in the layout on the right and I was finished! 

There is also a Black & White filter option. 
And remember, photo wells can be converted to text if you want to do more journaling.

You can purchase a Studio J jpg for only $2.95 & it's perfect to email to family & friends or post on social media. You can also print the jpgs on your own printer or at your local photo printing place.
There is no software to download and no cost to set up an account to try it out! And Studio J is also a great design tool! Visit my website now and see just how much fun it is!

La Belle Vie - The Good Life!

To make this layout I followed the Throwing a Curve pattern in the new Make It From Your Heart pattern book. The pink shape and the word Sisters were cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge. I used the La Belle Vie paper pack and also the Jardin Flair stamp set. The pocket on the right will hold a journaling tag. There is a stripe paper in the pack that is perfect for journaling on. The pocket for the tag is tied with waxy flax. The printed strip across the lower part of the layout is one of the La Belle Vie zip strips. These papers work great with black & white photos.
