I’m still finishing up some Weeds and Wildflowers goodies I have been working on, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share some of the hybrid scrapbook pages I made using the Loving You Quick Album (note: this is a regular quick album, which can be used for 100% digital pages as well). If you’re interested in hybrid scrapbooking but you’re worried it will be too time consuming – these ideas could help speed things up!
Hybrid Quick Album Idea #1: Start Simple
If you’re just getting started with hybrid, you don’t have to try a super complicated project at first! Here’s my process for the following page:
Digital Steps: Added my photos and journaling to the premade quick page, flattened, resized the layout to 8″x8″ and printed it out.
Hybrid Steps: After allowing the page a bit of drying time, I added the chipboard stickers to spell “love”, then added a few heart crystals (both from primahybrid.com).

Hybrid Quick Album Idea #2: Embellishments Can Bring Unity To Your Page
The last thing you want to do is randomly slap some decorations on your page just for the sake of making it hybrid. If you choose your physical supplies wisely, they will unify the look of your page and help blend the digital and physical together. On the page above, I used some heart shaped jewels to accentuate the pretty little hearts from the digital portion of the page. I also tied the digital and physical aspects of the page together by finishing my digitally created journaling off with a chipboard word.
Hybrid Quick Album Idea #3: Plan Ahead For Physical Embellishment
For me, it really helps to have a pretty good idea what I want my final hybrid page to look like BEFORE I design the digital part. Here’s my process for the page below:
Digital Steps: Added my photos to the quick page. Knowing I intended to add the crystal swirl, I placed my journaling along the outer edge of the page (I had measured the swirl in advance to make sure it would fit). Finally, I flattened and resized the layout to 8″x8″, then printed it out.
Hybrid Steps: After allowing the page to dry, I added the crystal swirl and flower (both from primahybrid.com).

I have a bunch more hybrid quick page ideas to share, so I think I will have to save the rest for another post. If you’d like to “read ahead” you can check out the slide show found here, to see some more of the pages :).
