Digital scrapbooking can be quick and easy—if you choose the right software. Studio J® online design software from Close To My Heart is very simple, intuitive, easy to learn, and super fun to play with! With Studio J, there are only five steps to scrapbooking success. Watch the video for a step-by-step tour, or read below for a quick intro to each step.
Step 1: Photos
The first step is Photos. Simply upload your pictures into Studio J. While it is the first step within Studio J, you can upload your photos at any time during the design process.
Step 2: Kits
In the next step, choose a themed kit of Background and Texture paper, cardstock, and My Stickease® to use for your layout.
Step 3: Patterns
In the third step, Patterns, select a design template for your layout. Studio J has patterns that include from two to 16 photos. Each pattern has a diagram of the layout, including measurements and placement, spaces for photos, and suggested areas for titles and journaling.
Step 4: Personalize
The Personalize step includes everything you need to make your Studio J layout uniquely yours. Here you create your title and journaling and customize the look of your page. In the “Embellish” section you can choose from buttons, metal accents, ribbons, and more. Studio J also includes default toggle accents, which are embellishments that we put in the design for you, but which you can toggle on or off as you wish. The “My Stickease®” section includes titles, quotes, tags, and letters that coordinate with the themed kit you chose. The “Paper” section includes Background and Texture paper and cardstock that you can use to swap the papers in your design. The last section, “Distress,” lets you distress with the ink color and tool of your choice.
Step 5: Buy
Buying on Studio J is simple! First, you do a final proof where you approve your layouts for purchase. After that, you simply create a profile with your address and credit card information, and you’re set! Your custom printed layouts will be delivered right to your door!
