Today Mary Rogers is here to share two amazing digital + hybrid projects AND introduce the August desktop calendar that she designed! Enjoy!
Mary: I have two items to share with you today using the Clippings Full Digital Collection and the Serendipity and Shine On Full Digital Collections available at jessicasprague.com. I also used the Capture album system to create a hybrid photo album, adding in items from the Carte Postale line and digital elements as well.
I love all the elements and papers available in the Clippings and Serendipity and Shine On Digital Collections. It makes layering so much fun. I wanted to use this photo from my daughters 16th birthday, and even though it was a little blurry, it really represented our day and how much she has accomplished (being autistic, parties are not her favorite thing). Combining collections, using elements from both lines, and moving them around on my project until they were just right, is one of my favorite things about digital scrapbooking.
I completely fell in love with the idea of the Capture album system. I haven’t used paper supplies in about 5 years, but knew when I saw this I had to give it a try. I won’t say I am giving up digital, but it was nice to play with paper and glue again! Digital + Paper = Hybrid fun!
I created the cover of the album starting with a blank canvas in Photoshop Elements. I used this as my base to create the layout, using elements and papers from the Clippings Full Digital Collection. I printed it on photo paper, before adhering it to the album. I also added the camera metal flair from the Carte Postale line and a simple piece of ribbon.
I created templates in PSE to make the Polaroid photos for each month, in addition to the 9 photo collage and film strips.
I began layering each month’s photos, journaling card and memorabilia, using the Capture Calendar pockets. I will add more as I go, and also some personal journaling about the photos. I keep a daily journal so going back and adding notes shouldn’t be hard at all.
If you are strictly a paper scrapper, try incorporating some digital elements into your photos and/or layouts. You can find the complete digital line at jessicasprague.com.
