Hybrid 8x8 scrapbook pages.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Day. I am still in Thanksgiving mode. I am so blessed. God has been so good to us. :)

Awhile back I shared how I fell head over heels in love with digital scrapbooking. Because I love all the 3D embellishments, and layering, inking and distressing in the traditional scrapbooking, hybrid is a natural thing to me. Are you asking what is hybrid? ok, real quick. Hybrid is a mix of digital and traditional scrapbooking. You might use a digital image or graphics and then use it in traditional scrapbooking (gluing, cutting, inking, distressing with your hands scrapbooking).

anyway... the layouts above were created using graphics from I thought it would be fun to offer some of my customer 8x8 hybrid pages. I have build them to be a 3D scrapbook page using kay miller graphics. Take a look and see how easy scrapbooking can be.

These can be easily customized too. Email me if I got you thinking of all the possibilities!! LOL

I am working on 2 custom made albums and will be posting pictures this coming week. In the meantime, you can find some of my newly listed items in my Etsy shop.

Enjoy your family! :)

OPEN for business!!!

Ok, so my sacrum is really giving me a hard time. I am not even 30 weeks yet and I just can't sit still for more than an hour. The joys of pregnancy!!!

Since I am not taking any major custom orders I decided to clean up my studio. I have a lot of unfinished projects that I will be listing on my Etsy store. Everything will be ready to ship, so here is your chance to grab a vintage looking handmade one of a kind gift for yourself or a loved one. :)

There will be a couple of small BABY guest books, a little girls' vintage scrapbook, a DAD album, maybe a Christmas chipboard album, a paperbag one, cards, premade layouts and other little things. These are all projects that I began and were put on hold due to custom orders that came in. So I will be digging them up from my drawers and finishing them and giving you the opportunity to purchase one of MyTreasuredCreations.

Check out the link to my store to see the items already listed. :) Enjoy!

In the meantime, more photos of the DAD album!!

Altered DAD album using Webster's Pages Scrapbook papers

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to share with you more photos of the DAD album I finished recently. This is not an album made of chipboard. It's actually made of MDF and it is a massive and impressive album. It stands at 8" tall and is almost 13" long.

It's the perfect album for memorabilia, keepsakes, letters and lots of pictures. It will look gorgeous decorating a mantle or a dresser. It will certainly impress anyone who sees it.

I will share the first 3 pages which make the word DAD. And the next few days I will share the rest of the album. There are a total of 7 boards which makes a total of 14 pages altogether.

The butterfly is my own. Hop over my OTHER BLOG to find out what she is made of. :)

Board #2, the letter A. Below you will see the front and the back of it. This was a custom order and with all my custom orders I like to provide some photo mats, but also allow for freedom for my customer to place more than one photo in each page if they so wish. The mats are really not confinements to your photos, but sometimes you can find yourself restrict by them. So if the page does NOT necessarily have a mat then we can think freely of how to use our photos.

Sometimes when I am already taking pictures I realize that I need to add more things to the album, that's how the BABY DOLL tag showed up. :)

Below the front of the third board, the letter D. Each page involves a lot of work done. I paint each board, layer my patterned papers then I add my embellishments. Make sure to check my OTHER BLOG to find out some of my techniques.

This is the back of the same board.

I would love to hear your comments and if you are looking for a memorable gift for someone special please email me. I would love to work with you! I am at the moment working on 2 albums for 2 little precious boys. I will share them when they are finished.

Have a great Sunday! :)
