My Favorite Hybrid Projects

I love hybrid projects.  I don’t really do hybrid layouts, but I LOVE creating hybrid albums and projects!!  I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorites that I have done over the years and maybe even give you some ideas! (note: many of the digital products used in these projects are no longer available, but you can use these ideas with any of your favorite digital products.  Also, many of these are from my times on creative teams.):

I think my favorite altered project ever is this game board.  Every other square on the game board had a question for a family member to answer:

As seen in Simple Scrapbooks Magazine, Digital Scrapbooking special edition.  Digital supplies by Digital Design Essentials, gameboard from BareBooks



Supplies: Shabby Shack digital kit by Digital Design Essentials, box from Oriental Trading


In this mini album, I adhered the layouts to the front of some envelopes and stuck keepsakes inside:


Digital supplies: Pregnancy album by Digital Design Essentials (the colors were for a boy, so adjusted the hue/saturation for my baby girl).



I made this fun shirt to wear for Halloween using iron-on transfers for dark colored shirts,  I used my Wiggle Worm font, printed (be sure to follow instructions for your transfer paper), cut around the outside of the letters (leaving a white border) and ironed them on my shirt (be sure to follow the ironing instructions for your transfer paper).


This one is one of my favorites…I think I need to make them again this year for my family!

I made these fun Halloween treats a couple of years ago:

I made this hybrid advent calendar a couple of years ago (I’m pretty sure you can find the advent part:

This is one of the very few hybrid layouts I have done.  I created the 12×12 layout digitally, keeping in mind where I might put some “paper schtuff” and added those items after printing.

Then, I took a 12×12 shadow box, added a calendar grid to the back side of the glass and added the dates on the front of the glass using a deli menu marker.  Now, I can clean off the dates, but leave the grid in tact.


In the last episode (17) of the Paperclipping Digi Show, Zoe and I talked about these cute, shaped, quick albums that I used below.  I made these bookmarks a couple of years ago and my oldest daughter still can be seen using them to mark her spot:

Here are some basic instructions for the journal:  I bought the journal at Target for under $3 (gotta love that). I then did the cover in PS, printed it, and ran it through my Xyron (adhesive on one side and laminate on the other). The handles are made by 7Gypsies and I added them by punching holes with my new crop-a-dile (loving this tool).


Well, I’m ready to get some printing done and and go back to my roots a bit.  I love these kinds of projects and plan to create some fun things over the next few months.  What about you?  Do you have any hybrid/printable projects up your sleave?
