You already know how much I LOVE Studio J, I've just learned a few new techniques that I want to try. Here is one idea - such a GREAT idea - that I discovered from Tonya Sheridan.
One of the layout patterns in Studio J is called No Limits. It's just a 12x12 photo well for both pages. I've always considered this pattern exclusively for advanced Photoshop peeps who want to build their own page or collage in Photoshop, save it as an image and load it into the blank page layout. However, after seeing what Tonya did with it, I have all kinds of ideas now!
Tonya used the page to feature a darling close up of her little "brown-eyed girl" and put it along side a classic layout. She even added embellishments to the 12x12 photo page to coordinate with the left page!
OR how about using these pages within Studio J for your front and back cover pages - simply add some text, stickease and other embellishments in Studio J and you are done! (I would use a photo that would introduce the album and another that will close or wrap up the album - perfect for theme albums!) I can't wait to try this!
OR how about using these to create shadowbox gift sets or beautifully frames photos for a family wall? Simply drop the photo in the page and a title, name, date, embellishments - make it as simple or elaborate as you desire! I can't wait to try this!!
