It's time to share our April CU goodies and I am lovin' these two nifty packs. 
If you like to walk back in time then this fun collection of 35mm Slide Frames V.1 will be right up your alley. They are just a little reminder of bygone days and would be perfect for framing mini photos or why not try playing around with your opacity and invert the photos to create old slide film.

I am a sucker for all things woodgrain so when Istumbled across these cool end of the line samples at my local recycle centre  'Reverse Garbage' I knew I had to grab them to create a pack of Woodgrain Textures V.1. Each wood veneer has its own unique grain and colour so you'll find the perfect tone to use in your digital projects.
You can grab these CU goodies on sale at The Digichick for a whopping 30% the entire weekend.

In this layout I wanted to capture a fun Summer feeling and  what better papers to use for this purpose than the Passion Play collection, with their bold warm colour tones they are a perfect fit.

I first printed the elements and papers from the Passion Play packs with my Epson A3 format colour printer I then adhered the Passion Play painted paper pack onto a piece of regular mint green card stock and started my project from there using the JUST A LIL' DIFFERENT V.1 | Page Drafts templates also by The Nifty Pixel. Next I cut a 6" wide piece of from the pattern paper pack  and layered it over the top , following the sketch.  I then grabbed my blcj artline pen and added faux stitching to outline the edges with a contrasting border to make teh papers stand out more.

I chose the photos I wanted to use showing my boys playing in the garden and began fussy cutting the elements from the printed A3 sized paper I prepared earlier. I also cut some paper ribbon strips from the papers to help add more dimensions and layering.
Now its time to add some texture and extra dimension. I used a The Crafter's Workshop stencil and applied some light texture paste through it onto the background areas where my photos and fussy cut elements will be adhered. Thsi technique adds a nice subtle texture as a point of interest. Once that dried I added some ink splats here and there for a touch of grunge and lastly added my title work in a contrasting colour for added impact.

So there you have it, an easy step-by-step tutorial showcasing our PASSION PLAY | Collection and JUST A LIL' DIFFERENT | Page Drafts. 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 PASSION PLAY | Collection which Sanna used in this tutorial click below to check it out!

Check out our latest Nifty Packs inspired by Spring.... PAPER FLOWERS V.1 and COLLAGE TEXTURES V.3. I love to make flowers and decided why not make some stacked paper yoyo's with a set of leaves so that you could mix and match. This handmade set include 5 flowers each created from junk mail because around here I'm all about up-cycling and loved the bright colours on the pamphlet so had to grab the scissors and make these happy faced lil' pretties.

I also got busy making some pretty textures of foliage and birds. These would be so beautiful to use in your backgrounds try blending, clipping and layering to create really striking gorgeous collages.
