Nathalie with you today to show you how easy is to work hybrid projects for your Life Crafted album using this month's AROUND HERE Digital PL Cards.
Personally, my daily documenting approach is filled with many hybrid layouts, as i love how easy it is to print your papers, embellishments and others to fit your ideas, but my favorite thing about hybrid scrapbooking is that i get to add my lines of journal in the page without wondering if it is all going to fit.
For this first entry, I used the new page protector # 3. Using photoshop, i opened the PL card and embedded the picture in the provided picture spot. I enlarged the card so that it fills more of the 4x6 space, and then backed it with papers from the Around Here kit.
The cut apart elements are a great way to create clusters and add your journaling, all i did was size them up, added my lines of journal to one of the label spots and then print them all in one sheet. A bit of fussy cutting, and then some glue was all i needed to complete this page.
For this next layout, i chose to once again enlarge three of the PL cards, so that i can use them as layers in the page, and, if you look closely, i shrunk one of the cards so that i could cut the sentiment and use it as an embellishment.
I chose to enlarge the Home Sweet Home card to fit almost the 4x6 pocket, at the same time, i enlarged one of the subscriber bonus PL cards, and cut the number strips and the sentiment, those form the layers behind the picture.
For this page, i enlarged both 4x6 PL cards. I fussy cut the tags from one of the cards, and use it as part of the cluster on this page. The small cluster of embellishments next to the picture are also made up of PL cards; The This is Not A Dream sentiment was created by shrinking the card to, and then trimming the title, the layers behind are just pieces of the other cards. A few pieces from the Around here kit complete the page.
This last entry was created using the beautiful PL card with the striped rainbow circles. First I enlarged the card to fit the width of the Life Crafted page, and then moved it so that the circles were in the middle of the page.
To create the title, i embedded the Here & Now Sentiment from the This is Life -Routine Digital Stamp before printing. The stickers and date were added after.
For the other side of this page, i used the enlarged PL card, and rotated it so that it formed the two rows of circles at the top and bottom of the page. Then added the lines of journal in the empty space in the middle of the page.
The layers behind the pictures are also PL cards, I enlarged the 4x6 card with all the tags, and fussy cut them. The sentiment at the edge of each card was perfect to frame the pictures. A few physical stickers and ephemera pieces complete the page.
I hope these have inspire you to use your editing programs to make the most of the Digital PL cards from this month's Around Here kit. If you have questions on how these came together don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to see what you create with this month's kit and digitals.
