Hybrid Tutorial

Pin It

Hello Everyone! Christina here. How is everyone enjoying their summer break?
I know today's post is late. I thought I didn't post till the 29th.

So today or this evening rather I thought I would go over on how to get those lines
to disappear. If you been doing Hybrid then you probably already know
how to. And if you have some better ways why not
share them in the comments :)  I know I will diffently enjoying
I have never did a hybrid tut before so bare with me.
I used Krisi's Creations Boxed Favor Vol 1
and the kit I used is from Inspirations from Day Best Day Ever Collection.
Krisi  has several file types for everyone. So once you  open your file in
your editing program and picked the papers you are ready to start.
Clip your papers on to the shape templates  and once you do that
you are ready to adjust your guide lines.
I went to the very top layer to start.

So here is my finish project

And here is a picture of the bottom
Not sure what you can all see but if you do see the dotted lines
notice how they are blending in  along the fold?
Also distressing it will help get rid of any lines and those white
spaces that I know I can't seem to help from having.
I hope this tutorial was helpful to you:)

Hybrid Favorites

Pin It

Hi, this is Jennifer from Krisi's creative team. Welcome to Hybrid Favorites! This is where we talk about a favorite tool or embellishment that can be used in the creation of hybrid projects.

One of my all-time favorite embellishments is Stickles. It's basically glitter glue, which comes in an easy to apply little bottle with a narrow tip. You can get many different colors, but my favorites are the neutral sparkly ones and the metallic colors like gold, silver, copper, etc.

I just did a project, this tabby ornament from Krisi's Kreations. I did the round ornament in a birthday theme, since I thought it would make a cute birthday decoration. The kit is His Day by Victoria Feemster.

This photo shows the ornament before the stickles:

It's a little hard to see in the photo unless you click on it for the enlarged version, but this shows the ornament with the stickles added. I just highlighted the balloon strings and the ribbon of the presents.

It's a great way to add a little sparkle and definition to your project!

Gallery Spotlight and Reader Challenge Reminder

Pin It

Do you know this feeling that you have been running and driving around all day and at the end of the day you realize just how many things you did not get done anyways? One of the nicer still on my to-do list was a little 'walk' through Krisi's Gallery at ScrapMatters to pick a project to show to you today.

But first I want to remind you of Krisi's Reader Challenge.
All you have to do for a chance to win a Gift Certificate to her store at ScrapMatters is to upload a hybrid project or layout using Krisi's products to her ScrapMatters Gallery before the end of the month. The winner will be announced here on the blog at the beginning of August.

But now on to the eye candy. Isn't this backpack by tinkay2 pretty? I love the big rosette that she used for the closure.

using Krisi's Jumbo Backpack template

What I love about this Jumbo Backpack template is that it is not only suitable for very small gifts or treats, but that you can fit quite a bit in there as it is printed on two pages of printer paper.

Tutorial: Little Gift in a Hybrid Card

Pin It

I'm Caroline, a new member of Krisi's Hybrid-CT during this summer.
I'm here today to show you how to include a little present into a gift card.

I use this cute, yellow flower-hairclip:

Assemble and print your card like you always do. Make sure that you leave enough space for your clip or pin or whatever you'd like to add.

I used a Kit from Alissa Jones and Krisi's Write it Out: Sunshine

Next you have to choose a ribbon. I used a colorful one with colors to fit my card. Use whatever style, color or width you like. Even lace works.

Now you have to glue your ribbon to your card. Make sure that you just glue it at the ends and don't add glue in the middle. Like this:


Now you have to wait until the glue is dry. This is important!! Otherwise your ribbon will move if you try to add your flower clip.

When it's dry you can add your little gift. I just had to flip my hairclip onto the ribbon. If you have a pin you just pin it into the ribbon...

And that's all! It's really easy right? You now have a wonderful embellished card and included a little gift for the receiver of the card.

Have fun trying! :)

Hybrid Challenge: Banners, Flags & Bunting! Oh my!

Pin It

Hi, Rebecca (ReboScraps) here to tell you about this month's Getting Hybrid challenge over at Scrapmatters. These challenges are a great way to get some tips about using your digi goodies to make real life pretties!

I picked Krisi's Banner Templates for my hybrid project. This pack includes 5 different shapes, and each shape comes in 3 sizes.

For my project, I used the rectangle, and also the one with the curvy shape on the bottom (in the preview, it's just peeking out there under the photo of the Happy Birthday banner) and created this little DREAM banner:

I often make hybrid projects to giveaway, whether it's a card or a little box for gift wrap, and this time I wanted to make something creative I can enjoy. I picked a scrap kit that matches my bedroom colors (Timeless Elegance by KimB.) On the panel for the letter "A" I added the quote by Henry David Thoreau that is also shown on the layout above:

"Let go of the past and go for the future.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Live the life you imagined."

Come play along in the challenge and make something beautiful for you!
