My first real Hybrid project!

I started off with this 8 x 8 scrap book page made on My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up! I used the designer pre-made page from the Rock-a-bye boy kit. I removed the bow that was on the page. I then printed it at home. That took a little bit of trial and error. You need to adjust the print settings. Make sure you put it on custom and move the borders so it will print the true size ( unless you want it to print smaller). Of course if you send it to the printing service through Stampin' Up! it will print true to size! Also I found that the color was more true ( with my printer any way, Stampin' Up! only guaranties true color on your projects when you use their printing services) when I printed on semi glossy photo paper. It looked pretty good on Whisper white, but I preferred the look on the photo paper.

After I printed the page I trimmed it. Then I layered it onto a piece of Chocolate chip cs ( 8 1/2 x 8 1/2) then I tied a piece of Choc. Chip ribbon around the page right on top of the printed piece of ribbon! I then layered again onto a piece of textured Very vanilla 12 x 12 cs.

I really love how this turned out! The whole process (even the printing errors) only took me 15 minutes! That's from start to finish! When was the last time you made a page that fast?
Please tell me what you think about this layout!
thanks for stopping by,

  1. I saw this page close-up. Jennifer added her own ribbon to it. I love it. Amazing!!! I wasn't even interested in digital scrapbooking. Now I am sold on the digital scrapbooking.
