Cabin wood decor using Jacksonville

So I made a fun wood home decor piece for a friend's 50+ 10 birthday (Yup that's really what he's calling it lol!).  Jim's favorite place in the world is his CABIN so I wanted to capture that here in my gift for him.  I used CTMH's Jacksonville papers (now retired sorry everyone I grabbed them as they were going, going, gone in August!) which fit perfect with my vision.  I distressed the papers with Cocoa ink before gluing them down.  All the embellishments are from my site heatherplotzke.ctmh.com  and the wood pieces came from woodcreationscrafts.com

Journalling through photos in Studio J

Remember that in Studio J you can change journal and title wells into photo wells too!  Journalling is important!!!!  But sometimes the photos say it all, like in this example, the photo of one of the light displays of our yearly event shows it off better than I could describe it.  I still made sure to include the date, and extra names elsewhere on the pages though.  heatherplotzke.ctmh.com

Studio J Outling Title Effect Tip

Check out the title on the right side--I made that effect by copying and pasting the title right over top itself and then changing the color of the top copy to colonial white from cranberry; and just offsetting slightly.  Super easy to do and it makes a great outlining look!
