Fickle Design Friday!

Friday, September 7, 2012


Happy weekend everyone!
 
I've got some fun new projects to show ya today. The talented Karla Dudley contacted me recently and asked if I would make some hybrid projects using her products. I was sooo honored to have her notice my work and ask me! The answer was a quick...YES!!!
 
Have you seen her lovely designs? They are just my style. Keep reading this post and let me show ya what I'm talking about.

I also looove playing along in The Moxie Fab World, so I'm also linking this up to their "Focal Point" Challenge. The beautiful oversized butterfly on my card & gift bag are the main focal point of each design.
 
By the way, all of my projects were made using the Fickle Collection.
 

 

Did ya see the Hybrid Kraft Gift Bag above? This was so easy to make. After printing out the elements that I wanted, I just adhered them to the bag. I used a large pop dot on the butterfly to make it stand out more. So fun and easy to make for gift giving.
 
 
Next up is a Hybrid Card...


I looove the graphic elements of the butterfly. Again, I adhered the elements that I wanted and popped up the butterfly. I even placed a small pink pearl gem on it too.


Next up is a simple Note Tag. And yep, it's all made with digital paper. I love the lined paper and the yellow "note" words. I used my die-cutter to make the circle, added some baker's twine, and a small button as well.



Don't be afraid of hybrid. Using digital papers in a traditional way is so much fun.
 
Here's how I make my hybrid projects:
1.)  I downloaded & unzipped the digital file. I saved it in "My Pictures".
2.)  I selected each digital paper that I wanted & printed it out with my trusty printer.
3.)  I then went through each digital embellishment & printed out each one that I wanted to use.
4.)  Once everything is printed then start crafting as usual. You can add buttons, twine, ribbon, or even mix the printed digital elements with traditional paper.
Here are some Handy Dandy Tips:
Tip #1 - You don't need Photoshop to use these. I have PS, but did not open the files there. I simply opened the files I wanted and printed it right out.
 
Tip #2 - When you select print, your computer should allow you to pick the size of each image. I used a variety of sizes for this project. Experiment and print the size that will work with your project.
 
I hope you find these tips and tricks to be useful. And I hope you enjoyed my projects today. My motto when trying something new is - Just have fun with it!
