Just the name of this style of scrapbooking has us raising our eyebrows. “What is
hybrid scrapbooking”, we ask shaking our heads. The truth is, a lot of seasoned
scrapbookers are already using hybrid scrapbooking techniques every day.
If you have ever printed items out like your journaling, song lyrics or poems and used them on a layout, this is hybrid scrapbooking. If you have added a title or journaling to your photo before printing it out, this is also hybrid scrapbooking. Anything that you have printed out and added to a traditional layout is classed as
hybrid scrapbooking, so most of us have probably been doing this all along.
There is so much to love about Hybrid Scrapbooking. We can add awesome shaped journaling to our layouts that would be difficult, messy or impossible with traditional scrapbooking. You can see samples of this in Bridgette’s layout where she has printed out lines of text onto cardstock, and also in Louise’s layout where she has the text following a curved line and has printed it onto transparency. Heather's layout has the text following the round shape of the swing. So rather than just having a handwritten journal card tucked somewhere on the page, the journaling has now become a feature of these hybrid layouts.

To make the strip journaling, text into a blank document and print it out
onto your cardstock. Cut into trips and ink the edges. To give
your page a little definition cut out circles that match the
circle paper and mount them up over the top of the other, place
them randomly on your page. Use the same picture and print in
different sizes for more detailed look. Gather ribbon into a
circle and place a brad in the middle to make flowers.

Nap Envy by Louise Williams

Specialty Ink: Maya Road, Fonts: Trixie, Other:
transparency, vellum, thread. Tools: Other: sewing
machine. Digital Supplies:
Software: Photoshop 5, Other: clouds brush.
Design Notes: I placed the photos together in a photoshop file and used a cloud brush to add some dream wisps at the bottom. I created a vintage frame around each and then printed them out, trimmed them to size and overlaid them, tearing one corner off to add to the aged effect and to soften the edge between the two photos.
When creating the swirly text, I drew the lines first so I could get the shapes right before adding the text.

I highlighted the flowers and used the bevel mode to make them look 3-D,
then printed onto cardstock. Then I added the photo and
patterned paper and little bird sticker.

high as possible on this bucket swing. Caution - no way - no
