Monday Magic Creation #5 – Power Layouts using Studio J

Welcome to the Monday Magic Creation challenge, hosted by me, Pamela O’Connor, your Close To My Heart Independent Consultant.

Let me share how it will work. Each Monday at 10 am CST, I will post a new scrapbook layout pattern featured in CTMH's all-new scrapbook how-to program, Magic. I will share with you my completed scrapbook layout using the featured pattern and challenge you to play along with me.

So, lets get started!

(Don’t have Magic yet? Order your copy HERE.)

This week’s (10/18-10/24) Monday Magic Creation challenge feature’s the Magic pattern on page 28 called Backstage.

Here is my Monday Magic Creation for week 5 (MMC5)…

While working on my creation for this week, I got to playing around on Studio J again and I wanted to show you one of the cool things I love so much about Studio J. Remember, it’s absolutely FREE to try out. Pay nothing until you are satisfied with your creations and are ready to have your layouts professionally printed.

There have been quite a few times that I have gone into Studio J and created a project and chosen the same paper packet that I am currently working with in my ‘Classic’ Scrapbooking. If I’m having a difficult time deciding what B&T Duos & Cardstock to use for the pattern, I can ‘play around’ in Studio J before I actually cut my ‘Classic’ B&T Duos & Cardstock. No wasting paper or creating scraps I don’t need. I can actually use up a lot of my scraps this way!

Below is the Magic pattern that is featured this week and you can see how I played around with different colors of cardstock bases.

Using Colonial White Bases


Using Heavenly Blue Bases  


Using Desert Sand Bases


Using Moonstruck Bases


I have tentatively decided on the Moonstruck bases.

I will be taking in some negatives (do we all remember what those are?) to get enlargements from pictures I took at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta in 1993.


(Just noticed my spelling error…will have to go back into Studio J and correct it next time I get a chance.)

I would love to hear your thoughts on the different bases I have shown. I’m still not 100% sure I want to use the Moonstruck. I will share my finished layouts with you once I get my enlargements done.


To play along with me, create your own scrapbook layout using the above featured pattern from Magic or Studio J and upload your creation to your blog or online gallery. Then leave a link to your creation using the linky widget at the bottom of this post.

There is no time limit - you can always play any week at any time, but I will close the linky form each Sunday night at 11:59 pm (CST). That way there's no confusion which linky is the current one.

If you upload to online galleries, please use keyword/tag MMC5 for this week (10/18-10/24).


Have fun playing along with me!
