In love with hybrid!

I've been a hybrid scrapper forever. In fact, my I recently discovered that the first scrapbook page I used a computer generated title for was created in 1997. Of course today's hybrid scrapbooking is so much more fun!

Last night, I decided to finally print the little Winter Dreams pages I did for the girls and one thing led to another...next thing you know, the three of us were digging through the craft room to find matching embellishments. I was amazed at what we had on hand and how much fun we all had deciding what to put where. I started the project by painting the edges of (3) 4" x 6" pieces with Making Memories Pearl Glaze. Then I Mod-Podged the pages on and covered the top - Gloss-Lustre - my favorite. Then I sealed the front and back with a clear acrylic spray. Then the fun began! We used a variety of things - Prima swirly jewels, Making Memories jewels, random trimmings from Hancock, snow flake metal pieces from Hot Off the Press, a pink glitter flower from Doodlebug and a pink corduroy brad from Imaginisce. I love it! I think it's so fun. We put it all together while watching the 80's flick "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" which Ella just calls "The Dancing Movie".

In other hybrid news, I'm teaching my first Hybrid Class at Gotta Scrap and I have pictures to show you! We'll be making a wonderful 12 x 12 canvas featuring Canvas Concepts. You get to pick which quote you want to make in class but you get to have both of the prints. The project requires some drying time so I'll be showing you some digital demos during that time so you can see exactly how I created the quote in Photoshop Elements. The prints feature paper from Summer Simmons. Her papers really lend themselves for these quote canvases. The girls at Gotta Scrap decorated the canvases all up with products from their shelves. How you decorate the canvas is up to you. You can go crazy with rub-ons and bling or leave it as is. So, if you want to check out what digital scrapbooking is all about, this is the perfect class!

You can sign up for the class right here or call the store to reserve your spot - 972-772-5197.

Too bad Rockwall, TX, is a bit too far from me. I'd come and create my first hybrid canvas. Maybe you will share with us some of the results here on your blog!?

This has nothing to do with the main topic of your post, but remember when you and I had a dance-off a la Dance TV? I think I permanently injured my knees from all the times we jumped off the couch doing our air acrobatics.

Love you!
