PRINT & CUT TRAVEL ATC'S | HYBRID TUTORIAL

Our fabulous Nifty Gal, Sanna Lippert is our hybrid star. She also has her latest and greatest tutorial which for the ATC lovers out there you'll soon be swooning over these brightly embellished little pocket fillers created using digital kits and bits and pieces from your own scrap stash!
'TRAVEL ATCS'

Digital Credits:
WANDERLUST | Collection by The Nifty Pixel
I chose to use the white and yellow paper as the background and collated quite a few scrap pieces I had printed for a previous hybrid project I had done using the Wanderlust digital kit. I fussy cut the destination luggage tags and added some yarn to create a realistic look to the tag and also stapled some additional twine on top for added interest. I then doodled some fine outlines using a black pen, this really helps define theATC.

I used some left over die cut flower pieces and adhered that to a piece of glitter paper. I then drew petals with a black pen onto some of the Wanderlust papers and fussy cut those and attached a wood veneer piece in the middle of he flower again adding some black pen outlining for a more defined look.
On some of the other ATC's I added corrugated paper, cork sentiment and more wood veneer but these have been dressed with some glitter glue. I finished off with some black inky splats and some glossy accents for added dimension. This collection of ATC's are making their way to their new owner on the U.S.A, ATC swaps are a tonne of fun and well worth getting involved if you love to own a little piece of art from another artist buddy.
So there you have it, an easy step-by-step tutorial showcasing the Wanderlust Collection. Creating hybrid projects is really easy and gives you more bang for your buck. Buy digital and create endless pages/projects from the one Collection, kit or pack. With just a little know how around photoshop or any other photo editing program you are well on your way to creating some awesome hybrid projects.

Do you think you might like to give hybrid scrapping a go? If so, we are offering a great deal in our shop on the WANDERLUST | Collection which Sanna used in this tutorial click below to check it out!

NEW MAJOR RELEASE COLLECTION | ADRIFT

Okay so it's June already gasp...it's half way through the year and time to reveal my latest Collection | Adrift which is a part of this quarters colourful Hatchery selection over at The Digichick. The Hatchery will be filled with lots of colour coordinating packs selling at $1-2 Dollars for a limited time so you can build your own collaboration for a steal.

Living on the East coast of Australia I am spoilt with the beautiful Pacific ocean right at my doorstep. Being lucky to live in a temperate climate all year round in a coastal town I was inspired to create Adrift. This nautical themed collection is filled with a fun selection of flotsum and jetsam perfect for any summer or beach themed digital projects. With a mix of moody colours and soft hues, plenty of textures, a number of inspirational and motivational wordart and a fun weathered alpha you will be well on your way to creating some eye catching projects about life and weathering the stormy waters only to discover new clearer and calmer ones ahead.

Hope you like this nautical collection and enjoy using the freebie.
Have fun and happy scrapping everyone!
