September 2014 Studio J blog Hop "Anything Goes"

Welcome to the "Anything Goes" Blog Hop....if you came from Julie Sinnott's - 12x12travels.blogspot.ca WELCOME and you are in the RIGHT PLACE!
I love how easy in Studio J that I can get 15, let me repeat that FIFTEEN photos onto a layout easily and still allowing for design and embellishment.

 I choose not to add a lot of My Stickease to this layout because the pictures were already so bright and decorated as the kids were all playing dress up and it was so colorful.  That's also why I choose to use White Daisy as the back drop neutral to leave some quiet space.

One last thing I HIGHLY recommend you do when doing layouts of the kiddos and their friends, especially at this young of ages....label the little darlings individually every so many layouts like I did on this spread.  My kiddos ALL look alike at each age and so does my girlfriend's kids...two, five, ten years from now I don't want to be guessing which kid is this (trust me it happens...just ask my MOM which one of my siblings and I wore what during Halloween any given year in the 1970's).  I also some where on EVERY layout I Studio J add the date  This time its pretty noticeable right in the journalling area, other times, its more hidden in a corner or tucked onto a picture or piece of ribbon, but all the same just a small date somewhere on there years from now will mean a lot to your loved ones.

I hope you enjoyed my layout and tips....if you do be sure to stop by again....until then now its time for you to HOP on over to Rebecca Brown - www.showmescrapping.com

I Love YOU page - Studio J

Studio J made putting this layout together a breeze. One of best tricks in Studio J is that you can not only reuse the same My Stickease over and over again, but you can RESIZE them!!!!!!! Like I've done in this layout. 

Total game changer for me.  It makes layering and manipulating of the Stickase so much more valuable.  I just love to use them with the program, it gives you such a freedom to play and create AND the best part its all FREE with the Studio J program.  You don't have to pay extra, its all included!!!!  I only pay once print at the end no matter how much foofy-la-la I add to my page or how little...gotta LOVE THAT!
