Morning all (only just still morning)

This is something I have been playing with inspired by a video of someone inking up cuttlebug embossing folders, I have a big shot and when I got it it has some plain plastic folders in (never quite new what they where for) so using that with a metal embossing stencil an piece of flat rubber (actually for opening jars with but I am told you can buy the proper stuff in sheets for the wizard) and the big shot I did these, I inked it with stazon just dabbing the ink pad onto the stencil till it was evenly covered then add the paper then the rubber on top close the top of the plastic folder and run through the big shot, it was a bit fiddly getting it all together I could have done with another pair of hands. These need trimming but I couldn't wait to share. Some stencils are thicker than others so I had to add and remove card as spacers for some, I think the bird one will look great on a card

I managed to get the old photos of DH so now I have more photos to scrap some where scrapped in my fist book which was a photo album that I stuck A4 Lo into, it was my sort of learning book so I am looking forward to scrapping them properly.

This LO is the hybrid LO I was going on about the other day the title was normal font but I had to cut and paste and resize it which I was worried would pixelate but it turned out OK, the printed elements where just a selection from different free kits I have down loaded over time, it was fun doing this although it took over the whole kitchen as I had all my stash out looking for bits to go with the LO but it was worth it as I found stash I had forgotten about. The photo on this Lo is of DS and that is not a smile its a half scowl and moments after this photo was taken he hid in a cupboard to get away. I know I'm such a bad parent!
Take care and thanks for looking

Some top tips there Dawn. I too wondered what those folders were for and now i know. Love your ink advice.

Well done on the hybrid LO. It was worth spending all that time on it.

First thanks for commenting on my Blog. It's great to hear from other scrappers. I really love this LO. I've recently heard about hybrids, but have not tried it. But I've done both digi and paper, so it only makes sense to try to merge the two. Great work!

I am not sure what hybrid is but the lo is stunning. Is hybrid half digi half handmade?? Or am I just being daft. Loving it! Jay xx

Jay you are right hybrid scrapping is a combination of the two.
