My project is on the Glitz Design blog today. It's my first post as a member of the Glitz Creative Team. Yeah! I've been on the Glitz Digital DT for almost a year, but Lea asked me to start sharing hybrid projects as a member of the Traditional Team. [Insert big smile here.]
Here's the project I'm sharing on the blog (sorry for the number of photos!). I think it might be my favorite project I've ever made. :)
I made a hybrid mini album--about 75% digital and 25% physical products. I used two Glitz collections: Brightside and 77. They mixed very well together!
For the "Oh Happy Day" on the cover, I turned a digital element into a die-cut using my Silhouette. The sentiment is a digital version of a giant rhinestone (enlarged) from the 77 collection, which I traced in my Silhouette program and die-cut on an enlarged digital 77 journaling card.
The blue and white stripe and the little flowers under the doily are both from the Brightside digital collection--I did lighten them before I printed them.
You'll notice that I don't have binding on the book. Here's why:
I didn't mean for the album to get so large, but it's well over 2" thick. I need to track down some 3" O-rings.
I wanted to share the pages in order. We went to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Homestead in DeSmet, SD last year:
I made a confetti pocket. The fact that it's half-sized means you can see the "HAPPY" page with my son, too (three photos down).
I love these pictures of my son and husband. We were riding on a covered wagon to the old schoolhouse:
Both of my kids got to ride on a pony. It was my son's first time on a horse. The "HAPPY" letters are the positive die-cuts from the cover:
We made jump ropes. My son really liked the pulling part. :) For the borders, I used the Glitz Chevron Roller Doodle--so much fun!
You can really see the prairie in this shot. I enlarged a digital journaling card for the background:
Like the cover, I made another digital element-turned-die-cut using the Glitz digital Wild and Free Element Pack 2. I filled it with Neat & Tangled sequins:
I think this page with my daughter is my favorite. I love the mix of the Glitz 77 heart stickers and giant rhinestone with the digital flower and wood veneers:
I adore that my kids are holding hands in this picture. It makes me so happy. :) I did a lot of layering on this page, including the Floral washi and another awesome gold sticker:
This page was originally going to be the cover, but I'm glad I moved it to the last page. I die-cut the digital sentiment from the collection. The lyric is from my all-time favorite song. :)
Thanks for making it to the end. :) I would love it if you would pop over to the Glitz Design blog and leave a comment.
Have a great day!!
