PRINT & CUT HYRBID TUTORIAL | ENJOY LIFE

Our fabulous Nifty Gal, Sanna Lippert is our hybrid star. She also has her latest and greatest tutorial which is full of texture, painterly qualities and lots of inky goodness. Get ready for some inky fingers and lots of fun layering your background using digital products paired with goodies from your stash!
'ENJOY LIFE'
by Sanna Lippert
Digital Credits:
GESSO GOODNESS v.2 by The Nifty Pixel
MAKIN' MARKS V.3 by The Nifty Pixel
WHO LIVES HERE | Collection by The Nifty Pixel
I first created the background using a patterned paper from the Who Lives Here | Collection then added some textures from Gesso Goodness V.2 and digital stamps from Makin' Marks V.3 layering the textures and stamps to create a grungy inked look using the digital products. I then printed the paper. I trimmed and mounted the printed paper on some black cardstock to add a contrasting edge as a border. I then stamped some geo shapes in an offset way to create some movement down the page.
I dressed the  page with some contrasting black, white and gold ink splats before adding the digital fussy cut elements I had previously printed off. When the ink was dry I added some coordinating puffy stickers, hand coloured lace using pink ink, a ribbon, chipboard stars and a 'Scan 'n' Cut' Word all from my stash. I layered and adhered the two photos of me, one in B&W the other in a contrasting colour to the top quadrant of the page to add some visual flair and finally I added some hand journaling, doodled a few hearts and stamped the date in black to add a personal touch.
The fun part about creating hybrid pages is layering the digital bits and pieces onto the background and then printing the paper. It is so easy to then just add the photos and a few coordinating embellishments, painterly details and journaling to really make the page your own.
So there you have it, an easy step-by-step tutorial showcasing several Nifty Pixel packs. 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 WHO LIVES HERE| Collection which Sanna used in this tutorial click below to check it out!

I had so much fun creating my lil' vignette impressions for the DSParade, that I kept on creating! I know right cray cray! I really do love the theme and palette so I had to keep going and make a full collection!

'Commencement' marks the end of an exciting era. A time of personal growth and discovery. It's when you or your kids find a place in the grand scheme of things. It's when we/they have gained knowledge and learn't to stand on your/their own two feet. It's also a massive step forward signifying the beginning of a really big adventure embarking on a new and exciting career path. I loved University and even to this day cherish both the challenges and achievements equally! I really hope this fun quirky lil' collection will help you capture some of those fun memories.
Let's have a look at what you get in the collection...
