Hybrid Scrapbooking Challenge for Get It Scrapped

Hi everyone,

My kids go back to school tomorrow and I feel a mixture of excitement (at not having to referee arguments) and sadness (they can be pretty cute and funny sometimes).  I have enjoyed more lazy summer mornings but am ready to get back into a bit more of a routine.  But enough about that for now, onto todays post.  A few of the ‘paper’ scrapbookers from the Get It Scrapped Creative Team participated in a challenge to have a go at hybrid scrapbooking.  Peppermint Granberg from One Little Bird Designs kindly donated the Crazy for You digital papers and elements for the challenge.

I had fun with this challenge and used the word brush ‘Once in a Lifetime’ over my photograph as the title of my layout.  My husband jokingly complains that I don’t scrapbook about him enough and the word brush prompted the idea for this layout about how much he means to me.  I used the colour burn mode in Photoshop Elements to make sure the title was bold against the photo background and lowered the opacity of my journalling so it didn’t compete with the title.  I also used one of the digital frames around the photo before printing.

I created a background using Gelatos and then printed the papers and assorted digital elements onto paper to use on my layout.  If you want to see more ideas for hybrid scrapbooking, head over to the article on the Get It Scrapped Blog.

Thanks for stopping by.  I look forward to posting more regularly now the summer holidays are done.


Supplies: Digital Papers and Elements from One Little Bird – Crazy For You kit, Gelatos, Card, Studio Calico- Wooden arrow, Twine – Maya Road, Pens – Atyou Spica, Pilot.
