Studio J Convention Layout #1

I am excited to be able to attend the Close to My Heart Convention in Dallas, TX this summer!  Close to My Heart sent out instructions to all Convention attendees to make 5 Studio J layouts that would be delivered to us while at Convention.  The instructions included some techniques that I had not done before.  Step by step instructions were provided, but we were free to change the layouts as needed to suit our photos.  I was happy to learn a lot and completed 5 layouts!

Here is layout #1-

Kit: Lucy
Pattern: Stars Above
Techniques: 
  • Deleting unneeded photo wells
  • Using text boxes to cover up portions of the pattern
  • Cropping My Stickease borders to make ribbon streamers.

My Acrylix Stamps: Did You Know?

My Acrylix® stamps are clearly the best in the stamping industry, giving you incredible creative freedom loaded with possibilities. Now is a great time for a refresher on our stamps with the beginning of June’s Stampaganza campaign—it’s buy two stamps, get one free.

Did you know?

  • My Acrylix stamps are ready to use right out of the package—no cutting out, mounting, or applying stickers required. Just place the stamp on your block, apply ink, and you’re set!
  • My Acrylix stamps and blocks are clear, making it easy to stamp in exactly the right spot.
  • My Acrylix stamps can be used to create a variety of popular looks, including:
    • base and shade stamping

    • creating your own patterned paper
    • sponging on multiple inks for single-impression, multi-color images
  • Many My Acrylix stamps coordinate with Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge shapes, giving you lots of creative possibilities. Cut the shape on your Cricut® machine, stamp the image on the shape, and attach to your project! In the Idea Book, the images outlined in red coordinate with Cricut® shapes.

  • My Acrylix stamps are super easy to maintain, store, and transport.
