April 2014 Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars Blog Hop for April 2014. If you found your way here from Elizabeth's blog, you are on the right track.  Our theme for this month is Easter, so I thought that I would share a Studio J digitally scrapbooked layout that I just created last month.  I just found a disc with photos from all the way back in 2003, and wanted to get them scrapbooked.  Can you believe these babies are now 13 and almost 17?  Where did the years go?
I love Studio J for its ability to help me create layouts in a jiffy, allowing me to get caught up on my scrapping.  I also love that I can select "paper packs" that are retired.  I had selected the Chantilly kit for its Springtime feel.  I picked a layout template that worked best for the photos that I had, and I was able to customize the background "papers" and digital embellishments.  I was also able to journal and create titles as I desired.  I opted to print this two page layout for only $7.95, and it was delivered to my door. The pdf files were also included in that price, and I was able to download the layout to share with you, or to have reprints made.  If you would like to try Studio J for your own layouts, it is absolutely free to try, and you only pay if you would like to order your creations.  I hope that you enjoyed my little journey back in time!  Thank you for joining me.
