Save your Race Day Memories

Studio J is an AWESOME quick and easy way to create online digital pages that preserve your race day memories in photos and journaling. Here are some events I did last year: 
Taco Ride...Margaritaville!

Running & Triathlon: Medals get lost, my memories will not be. 

My first Trail Run...saved to show my grandkids someday!

Digital Scrapbooking of my races...yes please! 
Tips for creating race or event layouts:
  • Take a photo or screen shot of your time and splits, save as jpeg then upload jpeg to Studio J and drop in a photo well. 
  • Save your race bibs, write your stats on them and insert them behind your finished pages for the event in your top loading album.
  • You can also store your medals behind the pages but its gets bulky so I take a photo of my medal and any other awards or trophies and upload the photos of them instead.
  • Journal your emotions and feelings of the day, not just the people and things. 
  • Pick a kit that appeals to you and captures the colors of your photos- but remember you can always change the colors of a kit to meet your needs. 
  • Look through all the Stickease embellishments in the dropdown- there can be some GREAT quotes and phrases you can drag onto your page.
  • Create a text box on your photo to make comments or label your photos. I make sure the vellum default is turned off so the background of the text box is invisible and I pick a font color that contrasts with the area of the photo I place it on.

I am in LOVE with Studio J because I can finally get the photos off my flash drive or PC and preserved for generations to view. I have had PCs crash and flash drives deteriorate as well as those old floppy discs (yes I have photos on those antiques!) but unless there is a flood or fire, my scrapbooks will be safe.
