More Sugarplum Paperie...

Three more hybrid layouts today!  And they're three very different layouts...but all using digital elements from Sugarplum Paperie.

City Love: I wanted to create something that captured the messy chaos and claustrophobic feeling of NYC.  I also mixed grungy elements with glitter, which feels so NYC to me!

Here's the layout:


Here's the digital portion:


Every Day Me: This one is pretty straightforward.  Though, I have noticed that I've been using my sewing machine a lot more ever since I put it on top of my desk (rather than stored under it).  I threw the circles onto the layout and then (without any adhesive) carefully fed the layout through the sewing machine to adhere all the circles.  I love the way it looks!

Here's the layout...

You can see that I added a lot of pen work after I printed it.

Eileen: I love the look of journaling lines.  I don't know why, but it makes a layout feel so much more ordered and neat to me.  And even though I've been playing around with hybrid for more than a year, I'm still discovering new ways to mix pixels and paper.  My impulse is always to print a mostly finished layout and then add some embellishments, but I really love how this last layout turned out.  As you can see, I printed a sheet of leaves and flowers on a transparency and then randomly adhered them to my layout.  And recognize that green strip?  It's the leftover scrap from layout #1's torn edge!

I wanted to share a quick tutorial on how to create the cool multi-colored leaves you see here.

Thanks for stopping by!
