He is all Boy

Tyler Tony is the subject of this Studio J layout.  I absolutely fell in love with these pictures of him sleeping on the tractor swing we had given the boys.  It is so sweet, I just knew I had to scrap it :)
In this layout we learned how to:
* Make pleated ribbon out of ribbon tabs
* Rotate a page
* Crop My Stickease images
* Camouflage with a text box
* Change the color intensity of a B&T design

* Creating a layered ribbon bow
* Creating striped ribbon using a text box

A Fun Day

A fun day almost a year ago now, but scrapbooking it brought all those memories flooding back.  It really was a fun day...
In this Studio J layout, we learned how to:

* Add a photo mat behind a photo using a journaling box
* Use letters as embellishments
* Add "tabs" of cardstock with journaling boxes
* Create a title using several journaling boxes
* Use a My Stickease image to make a border

Doesn't it sound like we've been learning a lot?  Well, we have.  Some of it is new to me and some of it is just a reminder that I can do so much more with the layouts in Studio J if I so desire.  It is so fast and easy to "fill in the blanks" with Studio J with what they have 'pre-designed' for us, BUT...the sky is the limit if we choose to do so much more!  I love that!

You are Darling

Today's Studio J layout brings you more pictures of my darling Goddaughter, Iris.
In this layout, we learned how to:
* Delete unneeded photo wells
* Use text boxes to cover up portions of the pattern
* Crop My Stickease borders to make ribbon streamers

So fun and easy :)

My nieces are so sweet...

Today's post brings you the first of my Studio J layouts for Convention.  Our annual Close To My Heart Convention is only a few short weeks away and as one of the perks of registering this year, corporate gave us each 5 free layouts to create.  We will receive them when we get to Dallas, Texas.
In this layout, we learned how to:
*Alter the look by changing the colors of B&T papers
* Rotate a page
* Use a vellum text box to lighten a color
* Convert a photo well to a text box
* Create our own embellishments

Want to learn how to do all of this for yourself?  I would be happy to teach you how!

Layouts are so fun and easy to create when you have such fun subjects as my nieces and when you have such an easy program to use as Studio J :)

A Baptism and a card

What a beautiful day for a baptism.  After church, we all went back to Dean and Rachel's house for a cookout.  How fun!
Here is the card I made for Iris.

Adorable Mini Album

Speaking of my friend Rachel (see yesterday's post), just look at the adorable mini album I got from her.  We were all at our Crop for a Cure last month and she brought these little albums for us girls.  She found the tins at Walmart (I think anyway).  They are actually gift card holders.  Of course, she is always thinking and decided to make them into mini albums.

 I can't wait to put some photos inside-isn't it great?
Then, imagine my surprise when I got to the last brought me to tears!  Of course, I said YES! 
 Iris is the most adorable baby!  This is us on Iris' first ever scrapping day at Beaver Lake Landing (a great retreat house we go to a few times a year).  I had to take some time out from scrapping to hold this precious little one (and teach her a thing or two about the movies we watch while we are there - Matthew McConaughey is a MUST!)  LOL!
Stay tuned for tomorrow's post for a couple pictures from baptism day.

Rhubarb Muffins

Today brings you another recipe card I made.  Not only did the card turn out cute, but the muffins were great!  Just look at the adorable muffin cup liners I found at Ikea a few weeks back on a fun day with my friend Lynn :)
Remember, you can always click on the photo to see it larger (so you can read the recipe!)
