Digital Two Ways & Flutter Bug Stamp Winner

Hello! Hope your week is going well and that you have some fun plans coming up for the Fourth of July weekend! :)

I have a couple of digital projects to show you. Two very different scrapbook pages. In this first page I use digital papers to create a traditional paper layout. Printing and using digital papers and/or elements on a paper page is called hybrid scrapbooking.


I've really gotten into hybrd scrapbooking, even though I love traditional paper pages and adore buying scrapbook supplies, because it gives me more options. I can store tons of papers and embellishments in files on my computer that take up zero physical space in my scrapbook room! Plus, I only print the things I need.

This 'July 4th' page is made with patterned papers from a brand new digital kit at Two Peas in a Bucket called 'Stars & Stripes'by Tricia Chapman. I love the bright colors, polka dots, stars and stripes!

This next scrapbook page is all digital!


If time is in limited supply, you might want to try digital scrapbooking because it's so much faster than traditional scrapbooking. I created this page with another new Two Peas in a Bucket kit called 'Bazinga Mini Kit' by Shimelle Laine.

So which is your favorite? The hybrid page or digital page? Do you prefer one over the other? I like the first page. I just love the dimension you get with paper pages!

Before I close, I would like to announce the winner of the 'Flutter Bug' Digital Doodles stamp. Congratulations to pattyo who said,

I just love butterflies, and this one is so cute! I would use it for just about any sentiment but most likely--thinking of you.

Patty, please send me your e-mail address so I can get your digital stamp to you.

Thank you for taking a bit of time out of your day to drop by! I hope you know just how much your visits and comments me to me! :) Kathy

Super cute pages, Kathy! Good for you for getting more pages done. I need to do that myself, badly.
Love the patriotic look on the hybrid page. I love the little additions you've added, too, especially the firecracker. The pure digital page is wonderful, too. Really love the look of the title lettering.

It's too hard to choose which layout is my favorite, both of them are fantastic! I love the patriotic stars and colors on the first one and the lettering and digital elements on the second.

These are so cool!...I especially love that 4th of July one....so many amazing elements and they all work beautifully together!

As usual, your work is gorgeous! Both pages are beautiful but I must say that I prefer "real" scrapping over digital. I do some hybrid too- creating and printing my own elements- but at the end of the day I love getting my hands dirty with real paint, glue and glitter.

Julia said...

Gorgeous layouts and great job showing both kinds of digital scrapbooking. I especially love the hybrid layout!

Carolyn King said...
