Hybrid Ideas for Digital Quick Pages: Part 2

Are you ready for some more hybrid scrapbooking ideas? A little while ago I shared some simple ideas to get things rolling, to see Part 1 *Click Here*. Today we are going to kick it up a notch and try some techniques to add a little extra dimension! I apologize in advance for the bad photos, they totally don’t do justice to the gorgeous colors and details of Gina’s designs as seen in the Loving You Quick Album pages.

Hybrid Quick Album Idea #4: Pop Up Parts of Your Page

This technique is super easy to do and really makes a difference!

Tip For Printing Digital Quick Page For Hybrid Scrapbooking Digital Steps: I added my photo and journaling to the premade Loving You Quick Album page, flattened, resized the layout to 8″x8″ inches (so it will fit into my son’s album). Then I opened an 8.5″x11″ size blank document, and placed the flattened digital page toward the top. THEN, this is key, using the rectangular marquee tool in Photoshop (or any other selection tool), I selected just the section of the page containing the journaling strips, copied the selection to a new layer, and placed it at the bottom of the page. Lastly, I printed this out on matte photo paper.

Hybrid Steps: After allowing the page to dry, I cropped out the base page. I also cut out each journaling strip from the duplicated portion of my page. Using foam adhesive (for a 3D effect), I adhered the Journaling strips above their corresponding locations on the page.

Hybrid Quick Album Idea #5: Pop Up Elements on Your Page

After adding a piece of ribbon to the bottom of my page, I also added extra height to the chipboard “g” sticker, using the same foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a few crystal swirls and hearts (all embellishments are from primahybrid.com).

Hybrid Quick Album Idea #6: Pop Up – With a Twist

This last idea is a variation of number 4 above, and is a great way to instantly multiply elements on your page.

Digital Steps: I added my photo and journaling to the premade Loving You Quick Album page, flattened, resized the layout to 8″x8″ inches. Then, like before, I opened an 8.5″x11″ size blank document, and placed the flattened digital page at the top. Then, using the lasso tool in Photoshop (or any other selection tool), I selected just the section of the page containing the two flowers at the top of the page, copied the selection to a new layer, and placed it at the bottom of the page. Lastly, I printed this out on matte photo paper.

Hybrid Steps: When the page was dry, I cropped it to size. I also carefully cut out the flower elements from the duplicated portion of my page. Here’s the trick: before re-attaching the flowers, I rotated them a bit. Then I used regular (not 3D) adhesive to attach just the centers of the flowers to the page. Lastly, I used my fingers to curl the edges of the flowers upward and inward to help them pop even more :). See how quickly you can multiply two flowers into four? For even more variation, you might want to try resizing the elements slightly before printing, too.

They have tons of new products in the store, one of which is a new 4×6 brag book designed by me with Heidi’s cute little In Bloom kit :)!

In Bloom Brag Book

Can you tell that I’m in love with 4×6 quick pages lately? There are just so many possibilities with these! Here is a little hybrid book I made out of it – just for fun and I’m actually keeping this one for myself :)!

I used cardstock from one of those Mat Stacks by DCWV for the pages and adhered wide strips of regular scrapbook paper to the insides of the pages to hold the whole thing together. Hopefully you can see what I mean from the photos – if not, let me know, I can give more detailed instuctions :).

And I am also sooooo excited about all of the other new products too! Here’s the first page I’ve made from the new Grandma’s Pressed Flowers 1. I haven’t even started playing with all of the other goodies, but if you want to see what they are, check out this post at the W&W blog – and pick up two free quick pages while you’re at it ;)!
