Digital and Hybrid Scrapbooking « CSF Blog

What is Digital Scrapbooking? Quite simply it is taking your digital photos and creating scrapbook layouts using your computer graphics programme. There are loads of digital papers, embellishments, frames and so forth that you can find – many for free – and you use these to create your pages. Once you have finished your layouts you can print them out and put them in an album – as you would with regular scrapbooking – or write them to CD and create a completely digital album that can be copied and sent to friends and family. One of the huge benefits of DS is the ability to change every element of your design. *TIP* Only use elements that are created at 300 d.p.i (dots per inch) – that way they will look perfect on your layouts – other graphic elements might not have the same quality and thus stand out from your designs rather than working with them. What is Hybrid Scrapbooking? What do I need? Like this: Double Page Layout « Scrapbook Ideas. The Prima design team members were challenged to create two-page layouts recently, here’s what I came up with – a couple of pages for my wedding scrapbook (yes, I’m still slooooowly working on it 5 years later LOL)!

I guess these also qualify as faithbook pages because of the Bible verse I have included, which was incorporated into our wedding ceremony. Details Here’s a close-up of a hybrid scrapbooking technique I used on page one. I had printed out an 8.5″x11″ page with a Loft 18 Silhouette, merged with one of the Beautiful Day papers, and my Bible verse typed out along the side.

Then, I used chalks and colored pencils to color it in, and added the Loft 18 flower to the coordinating spot on the Silhouette. I used another hybrid technique on page 2: after printing out one of the So Flirty quick pages, I cut out one of the designs with a silhouette for a chipboard heart and added a bit of glitter glue to it.

Nice! I showed Sabrina the embossing technique and she is now a fan! We almost overheated the heatgun trying different things! Fun! But somehow I didn't do much on my pages... well well. Finished work earlier today so I'll scrap some more. No other news from Montpellier other than rain, rain and rain again. Who's coming? Have a nice evening! Ca c'est ce que j'ai fait hier aprèm, on a commencé à 14h et fini à 20h30, pas mal! J'ai fini boulot plus tôt aujourd'hui donc je vais continuer un peu. Sinon, pas de nouvelles de Montpellier sauf la pluie, la pluie et encore la pluie.
