Hi everyone and welcome back! Today I am sharing a hybrid scrapbook layout with you and I am so excited for you to see how digital scrapbook templates can turn into physical layouts quick and easy! If you’d like to see tutorials for using Photoshop to create hybrid pages, check out this link: Photoshop Tutorials. You can also see more hybrid layouts here: Hybrid Scrapbook Layouts. For today’s layout I am working with Quick Pages from Sahlin Studio, and this one is called Melon Sorbet. Have a look at my process video!
Quick Pages are digital templates that already include digital elements and a place for your photo and journaling. They are layered templates, and so what I do is go ahead and add my photos and words, and then I separate out the layers for printing. Once they are printed, you can cut them out and adhere them together as your finished page!
For this page, I had a photo from a trip we took into the city of Winston Salem back in 2018. The kids found this adorable little truck, and so we had them pose for a few fun photos with it! This template has the cutest patterned papers and really cool elements that go perfect for a city theme. My favorite part about printing templates is that there is no waste – you print only what you need.
Hybrid scrapbooking gives you the best of both worlds: digital elements that can be printed over and over again, PLUS physical products that add layers and dimension to the page. This template called for some elements that made fun replacements. Instead of the digital floral, I used physical flowers from Prima. I also used physical flair buttons, which added a bit of shine to the page. In place of the digital sequins, I used acrylic pieces, a tiny felt bow, and other dimensional embellishments I had in my stash. It was so much fun going through my stash and looking for these little additions!
Another wonderful benefit of using digital is being able to add your journaling before printing. This template gave plenty of space for your story, and the white space is beautiful below it. This was so much fun to create, I hope you are inspired to give hybrid scrapbooking a try! See you again soon!
