Hybrid Fun

Before we get to Hybrid Fun--just a quick update on the Website. I'll be launching a new and improved version of on September 15th. Sneak peaks will be available in the coming weeks.

Here's one of my latest hybrid scrapbook creations. I put the 12" print paper (Rouge Le Grange) right into my printer to make that title with a free download online. I used the Wizard to make a circle booklet that opens at the pull of a ribbon for journaling. The same technique is featured in a totally different layout for Spellbinder's October Education Newsletter. I love the versatility of my Wizard which was also used for the vellum letters (Indulgence font) and the white shaped accents (Paisley). The white stars are from an EK Success punch.

The journaling inside tells about this photo of my favorite musician, Bruce Springsteen. He played 5 nights in Washington DC on his "Born in the USA" tour. I was there the night before this picture was taken by a friend of mine.

The "sound advice" within the circle is that if you see no other live rock concert in this lifetime, see Bruce. He is astounding.

I just love combining digital and traditional scrapping. As I mentioned in July, the whole process is easier now with my Epson R1800 printer. (no affiliation, but I love this printer) I also have a new giant scanner for 12" pages, but alas, the surplus sale scanner needs a few repairs that we are gradually getting the parts to do....

This layout came together in under 20 minutes. I'd been meaning to do something with this photo for years--ever since I took it out of my living room in a frame when I got married in 1986.... My first husband didn't like Bruce, that should have been a sign. What was I thinking?
