I first discovered Mel when she was first selling hybrid goodies on her blog. My heart about skipped a beat when I saw all of the fun hybrid projects she had! I am so excited to have her and all of her hybrid goodness with us this month!! Here’s a look at the cute project she has in The Digi Files 10 this month:
The cool thing is you can get this and 8 kits from other designers/store for only $5.00!!! Where else can you get so many high quality digital goodies for only 55CENTS per collection!? Over $30.00 worth of product for only $5.00!!
Here is what we did with this versatile project:
Katie and her daughter turned the Mommy’s Little Helper in to a school planner.
Not only does Mel include the finished printable project, but all of the pieces that were used in its’ creation. I couldn’t resist the cute doodled scallop edge and made some gift tags.
I’m an Army wife to my best friend and momma to two neat kids, aged 8 and 6 in Houston Texas. I’m also a ‘retired’ elementary school teacher and a member of Team Jacob.
I have always done my creating on the computer. Back when I taught school, I would jazz up my papers and notes with clip art and goodies. Then when I had kiddos, I started using their photos to make invites and notes to our friends and family. When I couldn’t find what I was looking for in the shops, I would try to make it myself.
By the time hybrid scrapping came along, it was a natural fit. I just continued to make my goodies!
I’ve been designing for about two years.
Both. I am really trying to balance my time between the two. I don’t want my own scrapbooks to be put aside because I’m making goodies.
It really depends. Some weeks when I really have my mojo working, I can work 30+ hours. But we are a busy family with Scouts, sports, etc, so I usually get to work about 10-20 hours a week.
