Welcome to The Cherry's Hybrid Saturday!
Boy, oh boy! I'm so happy you're here. We've got loads of scrappy inspiration in the form of digital pages as well as half a dozen hybrid ideas and freebies so you can have a total scrap-a-licious weekend. I've got pages with our newest templates, some older, some free ones. There are new releases from JoCee Designs and Clever Monkey Graphics, too.
Grab a cup of something delicious and a snack and sink your teeth in today's awesomeness!
I released these templates, yesterday at our GingerScraps Shop. They are only $2.79!! I had to hold off on my pages with the goodies from Sweet Shoppe because they release a little later, but it's a great excuse to break up the blogs and offer some fun hybrid ideas.
My little guy and the new templates paired up with Clever Monkey Graphics fun, fun Charmed Love. I played quite a bit until I got just the look I wanted. Tip: For the little x's, I finally settled on a fine outline to give them just a little more pop.
Here's another page of mine with Tracey's new collection, Slothing Through Winter. I'll confess, I'm a Florida girl at heart still. I've been living in Belgium for over 15 years and all of this grey is not great for one's soul. Tips: However, a positive out look and surrounding yourself with items that brighten your day are a great help. It gets dark early and takes what seems forever for that sun to rise. I love to use candles or maybe light a fire. Heat up some mulled wine or cider and maybe even roast some marshmallows on the gas stove. Pop up a huge bowl of pop corn and put on a great movie. Maybe one with a summer vibe? Get an awesome jacket and accessories to help keep out the cold when you go outside and it'll make the winter much more tolerable. Music! Don't forget music! It can really turn our down feelings into something much better.
Only You Templates and Slothing Through Winter
This page started off with my Only You templates and as what often occurs, I ended up using only the paper layers, photo spots and cluster suggestions. Hehehe...I really did like that mask background, but I didn't dig anything I did with it. I was thrilled with the result, though.
I loved this paper and I really love that Tracey gives us soo many paint and anchor pieces like scatter, in her collections. It helps give our pages a more finished, polished look. You can just see the way I used her paint stamps in the corners and I added my own little splatter border from one of my other template packs. Some serious layers and dark, impactful shadows gives my white space page a little punch.
Tanya's fun hybrid project with the new collection. Try it yourself? Tip: If you need help, go to this blog for several different ways/tutorials.
It's my intension to start printing out more of my pages. Tracey's collection, Polar Vortex even came with these fun pockets. Tip: Scrapping pages like this is a great way to save time. Especially, when most of these journal cards or pocket cards were already designed. I did the one with the moose and the penguin. This would be a super cute card, right?! It's in a format I can print, too. So ya could get a lot of birds with one stone.
Speaking of pockets, did you get Wendy P's free pocket letter template from the Birthday Bash? Total awesomeness! I used the Farmhouse Valentine collection with it.
This is the free template I used from Wendy P. Following along with the celebration has its advantages!
Also new to the Sweet Shoppe, from Clever Monkey Graphics is Boy, Oh Boy and boy, oh boy do I love this collection. I went absolutely nuts! Check out all of my pages and even another hybrid mini project.
Observe the under titles to see what templates I've used. They are linked up for easy access.
Play Hard Templates and Boy, Oh Boy from Clever Monkey Graphics
It dawned on me that I could use my Scrapbooks templates and go hybrid! Keep scrolling to see how this page turned into a mini album.
JoCee Designs also has new items in the Sweet Shoppe. I thought the colors went perfectly with my new templates. That's me and my besties.
Baby On Board came to the shop for the oldies but goodies sale that happens weekly at Sweet Shoppe. It's a great opportunity to save! I used my Fashionista templates for this one. It was the perfect combination, don'cha think?
If you're here for the hybrids, I have a few more to show off. Clicking on the images will get ya to the blog for more information, free templates and or tutorials which will most probably lead you to even more freebies and hybrids!
