Hybrid All Year Round
Hybrid scrapbooking pairs printed digital products such embellishments, brushes + layered templates from your computer with traditional scrapbooking products. During the course of this workshop, Creative Team member Jennie Rey will be sharing fun ways to play with your Stories by the Month™ Digital Kits and bring them to life in paper + printed projects.
Jennie will be using the 2017 Stories by the Month™ Digital Kits to show you a variety of fun and creative options spread over 4 main topics:
- Go Big!
- Change it up!
- Backgrounds & Templates
- So Much More
Each lesson will cover one month and will include a story of that specific month and a story told with the monthly products but not specifically related to that month. All of Jennie's lessons will be rooted in story and the examples will demonstrate how these digital products can best support the stories you want to tell. This workshop will provide you with inspiration and show you that you can do a lot with digital products (sometimes you do not need much more!).
Note: This workshop is not meant as an in depth Photoshop tutorial, but will show the steps Jennie takes in Photoshop to make physical (6x8) pages using digital products.
