1) Cut cardstock into 1/4"x12" strips.
2) Ran an 8.5"x12" piece of cardstock through the Xyron to create a large sticker.
3) Removed a little bit of the backing at a time to lay down my strips of paper in a random pattern.
4) Cut off the excess cardstock by turning the piece over and cutting along the edge of both sides of the base.
I now have a fun piece of striped paper that will give my next project a pop of color!
Studio J layouts! The technique is very similar in Studio J...you simply use text boxes to create your strips and then fill them with a solid color or patterned paper.
When creating small strips using text boxes in Studio J, you may see a warning symbol. A couple ways to minimize the warning symbols is to reduce the font size in the text box and hit the space bar so the text is replaced with a blank space. If you still see the warning symbol, never fear...it won't print on your final layout.
Studio J allows us to be as flexible with our layouts as our classic supplies do.
Below you will find a video tutorial that shows you how I created this layout in Studio J. It also gives a couple more examples of how I used strips of paper to mask or add colors using my classic supplies.
