CTMH Later Sk8r Scrapbook Studio J Layouts

I've definitely enjoyed playing with the CMTH Later Sk8r collection...both in paper and digital formats!  Below are a few of the Studio J layouts I've completed using Studio J and Later Sk8r.  The colors work beautifully with all the pool-time layouts I've completed, as well as a little arcade, Vegas and several other pages.

  This layout is one of the NEW Studio J patterns added last month:  Gallery Collection (8-9 photos).

This is another of our NEW Studio J patterns: Beauty in Repetition (10-12 photos).  Mandy and I discovered the Fruit Ninja game at Dave N Busters, so we spent quite a bit of time demolishing fruit and winning tickets...we took the game quite seriously...maybe a little too seriously, but it was so much fun!

Yet another of our NEW Studio J patterns...can you tell I was excited to see the new patterns arrive?!!  Supporting Cast can accommodate 14-16 photos!

One of my favorite benefits of Studio J (aside from the super-fast and easy way to create) is that I can duplicate a layout, then swap the pictures out so each of my boys gets their layouts with their photos featured!!  As you can see, these two layouts are essentially the same, I just rotated the right page to coordinate with the different photos, then swapped the boys pictures out, and wallah, they each have their own layouts!

And another quick layout using Later Sk8r and Studio J, this pattern is Snappy, an exclusive Studio J pattern that accommodates 14-16 photos!

CTMH Later Sk8r Cricut Treats

More with...

The My Creations Clear Treat Tubes (Z1823) are super easy to decorate, especially using Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut out the gears.  I cut a bunch of the gears in different shapes/sizes (1" -  2.5") to use on the projects below since I wasn't sure what I wanted to do until I started assembling.

The circles on top were actually the inner circles cut from <9><Shift><Accent 2>.  I used some of my remaining Stickease (X7167C), backed with Pear cardstock, to create the tags.  Then added the Green and Blue Epoxy Bubbles (Z1806) for a little pizzazz!

This cute little box is a simple 1-cut piece from the Close to My Heart exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (page 22, #2 box) cut at 11.5".  I used our Shimmer Trim (Z1799) silver adhesive-backed tape to seal the box.  A few of our Artiste gears and a little bling finish off a quick and simple gift item.

These green boxes were cut using the CTMH exclusive Artiste Cricut Cartridge (p38) <8><3dObject> cut at 5".  

This card has our Black Shimmer Trim (Z1809) for the bling, and one of our Later Sk8r Assortment (Z1810) rubber embellishments.

This Artiste Gear card is super cute with the Later Sk8r collection, great as a gift card holder, party invitation or any other sentiment for your guys!
