I finally did it, and I have to say I LOVED it!
The past two weeks, amidst computer issues, I have been working on a
hybrid project at my local scrap book store Scrap a Memory.
Well, actually a couple of them. I have made some pages using anywhere
from a small bit of digital to paper to a full digital page to paper style!
This week, I will start you off slow with my “a little bit hybrid, a lot paper”
These photos are purposely “un-touched” by PSE or any photo edit.
I wanted you to see what my kits look like when you print them, and why I
personally am a fan of saturated papers. I love the look digital and know that for
my scrap fiends that purchase for printing (digital or hybrid) they need that extra edge.
I started with a few pieces from these digital kits:
The menu mason jar, tab, and F(family) element.
The black flower.
The cream flower, re-colored.
I grabbed these traditional paper scrap items from the store
“Country Boutique” corrugated black paper and
“Off to School – Numbers” paper by FancyPants
(not shown) Piece of black Bazzill cardstock
Grabbed a “Prima” circa 09′ fabric flower and an alpha from my own stash.
Then, I printed off the pieces on a regular 8.5 x 11 white cardstock.
Cut out the flowers, and sanded the edges a bit with one of go to favorite
products of all time and a must have if you hybrid:
Precision File Set by Basic Grey
I did also snag a paper bag from the store to use on behind my photo mat.
I just loved those zigzag edges of the bag, LOL!
Once I cut, crinkled, and had the pieces where I wanted them on the page
I just glued them down like any other paper page.
Here are a couple of close up photos so you can see the details of the flowers
and the menu mason jar as they print at 300 dpi.
I have not done any photo edit or added any color to these. Once I filed
the edges of the flowers, I did ink up the edge of them a little so that the white of the
cardstock did not show. I used Cat’s Eyes “Bronze” by Color Box.
It is a chalk like effect and is super easy to use for it’s size.
I have set the prices of these kits down for a limited time since I used them on this page.
You can grab them for 30% OFF until Wed. Sept. 26th at midnight EST.
I hope you try hybrid and I would love if you shared with me if you do.
See you next week for another page created 75% with hybrid!
