Using a Designer with Paper and Digital Lines
by Julie Kelley, Creative Team Member
For this project, I wanted to use some of the fabulous Bo Bunny papers that I had. I realized that the papers were created by Shabby Princess, so I took a peek through my digital kits, and found that Shabby Princess' "Olivia" collection coordinated with the Bo Bunny papers she designed. I chose a photo, and some papers, then looked through the digital kit to see if there were some elements that I wanted to use.
I like to create a full page when I'm printing. I generally use Epson Heavyweight Matte paper, and hate to waste any! I created a new 8.5x11 canvas in my PSE4, and started filling it with elements that I thought I might use on the layout. I can always use any extra elements for cards or an additional layout. Here's what I decided to print:

Next, I chose the photo I wanted to use, and started cutting out the elements. I decided on paper and cardstock and added some ink around the edges of the paper, elements, photo and cardstock. The last thing I did was stamp the title tags, and attach them with brads. Here's my final hybrid layout:
Here's a closeup of the stamped tag title:
