Scrappin' away with Studio J!

I just have to say that the current special for Studio J has got me scrapping like a madwoman!  So far this month I've already created and ordered 21 layouts and I have more waiting in the wings.  How can you resist when a two page layout is only $5?!?  Obviously, I can't.  Here are just a few that I've done. If you'd like to give it a try, just go to and give it a shot.  It's totally free to play.  And the special lasts through March 15th.  If you need some guidance, give me a call!

You can find a paper pack to match any photos!  This layout had extra embellishments that I didn't want so I just clicked a button and they disappeared.  Awesome!

This is one of the Express Collection layouts.  It was fully designed and all I had to do was drop in my photos and add some journaling.

I love being able to add embellishments the way I want - every Disney layout I do has a Mickey head somewhere on it.  This one's easy to find!

I never thought a layout with mostly black paper would pop as well as this one did.  Just a bit of experimenting and I had a winner!

Paper Quilting

I saw this technique on Pinterest and had to give it a try.  Once I had all my quilt squares glued down to the base cardstock, I ran the entire piece through my Cuttlebug.  You can see the detail a bit better if you click on the picture.  This is the Christmas paper from the last idea book but you'd never know it the way it's used here!  A couple of Cricut hearts with matching stamps and a simple piece of ribbon and your card is done.  So simple and an excellent way of using up scraps.

Lazy Days

It's been awhile since my last post and I have no excuse.  I've been lazy about keeping up.  But I'm here today to show you a couple of things I've been creating.

This is a slight variation of a card in the latest idea book.  I like to use that and things I find on Pinterest to give me a jumping off point whenever I'm feeling creatively challenged.  I don't always have the same stamps or papers but it's the general idea or color combo that sparks my interest and I take it from there.  This darling bird was done with colored pencils for a nice soft look.

And here's a color combo that I really like - chocolate and blue.  The random stamping was done with some extra accents that came with an alphabet stamp set.  You never know where you're going to find just the right image.  That wonderful scrolly frame tag is from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  It was designed to be a card but changing the size made it perfect for this sentiment!  It just goes to show that you don't need to have tons of supplies to create a stunning card.

Smiles, Caron
