That's right...learning how to do hybrid scrapping is not only fun, but it opens up a whole new world to traditional scrappers.
Designer Jessica Gordon made this fabulously beautiful layout by combining the two mediums!
Jessica's Instructions: To make the custom photo sticker, I simply printed the Flirty Album sticker onto the Retail Friendly Hybrid sticker paper; adhered my mini photo onto the sticker, and added an epoxy sticker on top. I also re-colored the Melody Flourish design to match the Life Colors paper, using the "Color Overlay" option in PhotoShop. Then I printed it onto another piece of the Life Colors paper and trimmed around the design before adding a Say it in Crystals swirl. I also printed and cut out part of one of the 6x6 Flirty Album quick pages, to layer my flowers and leaves over at the bottom of the page.

Designer Di Hickman is going to show us how to use a touch of hybrid in altering a journal! She lists COMPLETE step-by-step instructions for anyone who has never tried this before!
Printing on the
chipmates stickers – Di Hickman
The Prima Hybrid store has coordinating digital chip-mates stickers for some of the paper lines, so I thought I’d do a little tutorial to show paper peeps how to use the stickers to print just one sticker at a time There are a few ways of doing this, but I am focusing on using digital editing tools. For this tutorial I am using Photoshop CS3, but the principle should be the same in all photo-editing programs.
1. First open up PhotoShop and the chip-mates sticker sheet you want to use, in this case I opened the “Signs of spring” chip-mates. (SS1.JPG)
2. Add a new layer and fill with white (second layer in screen shot). Duplicate the background layer and move ABOVE the solid white layer. Using the marquee tool draw a box around the chip-mate sticker you want to print. (SS2.JPG)
3. Next click, select, inverse (or right click, select inverse) and the selection should be inverted so all the sheet EXCEPT the area you wish to print is selected. Simply press delete to remove the excess printing area, leaving just the green sticker and text in this example.
4. Print onto a chip-mate sticker sheet, and use in your project.
Isn't this a fun, and fast, CUSTOM project?
