Prima Marketing Printery Hybrid Cards

Hello friends!  I’m Julie Walker from the design team here to show you a quick hybrid card project using Prima Marketing Printery.
Prima Marketing Printery Hybrid Cards by designer Julie Walker for Snap Click Supply #digitalscrapbooking #snapclicksupply
I started the card making process by creating a new 8.5×11″ document in Photoshop.  I happened to have a few plain cards on hand so I measured the front of the cards to determine the size for the base of my cards.  My cards are size 5.5″ x 4.25″.  I set up two clipping masks both sized 5.5″ x 4.25″.

I chose two different papers as the base of each card and clipped those in place.  I then added a few embellishments and and photo and placed them on the card so I could get the correct sizing.
Sept Julie Walker page3
After I was happy with the placement, I moved the top elements over so that they would print as separate pieces.  I wanted to be able to layer them manually when creating the physical card.

After printing the document, I used ribbon, rub-on letters, and rhinestones to embellish the cards.
Supplies:
Paper Trimmer
Glue Dots
Cotton Twine
Rhinestones
Rub-on Letters

Tips for Using a Digital Scrapbook Template

Scrapbook Template Candice Meyer 1

Hello fellow crafters! Candice Meyer here with a tutorial on using a digital scrapbook template. I had the pleasure of working with LivEdesigns ‘s EZPZ Template 05 to document the latest and greatest in toddler life this summer.

Liv EDesigns EZ-PZ Template No 5 available at www.snapclicksupply.com #digitalscrapbooking

I love using beautiful templates. For me, they combine the best of 2 worlds- they provide structure while being completely flexible! Since they contain a framework of where to place your photos and papers, they are also a huge timesaver.

I fell in love with the bright, modern designs of the Spice Market collection and couldn’t wait to add them to this template. Based on these beautiful designs, I knew I wanted my color palette to be aqua, coral, and orange.

Since I knew I would be working with a different color palette, the first thing I did when I opened the template in Photoshop Elements was to delete the red background paper labeled LIVE5-Paper-Sangria, as well as the LIVE5-BIG5-Floral.

Now, here’s the fun part: adding in your new papers, photos, and embellishments! Since the layers are already in your template, it’s extremely easy to identify where to delete, add, or replace.

My process:

  • Clipped new papers to the background and #5 layers.
  • Clipped new papers to the photo mat layers.
  • Positioned a few fun embellishments.
  • Added my photos.
  • Recorded my thoughts and memories with journaling text.
  • Finalized the design! Saved and printed!

Tip #1: You can manipulate the color of the papers included within the pack to fit your design concept. I added a Saturation Layer to the orange paper in the kit. Check the “Colorize” box and then change the sliders to achieve your desired hue! Here’s a snapshot of my orange color turning pink:

Tip #2: I also decided to lighten the aqua background paper I selected as my template base. To do this, simply add a Brightness/Contrast layer and clip it to the aqua paper. Adjust the brightness slider slightly to give everything a little extra pop!

Tip #3: Don’t forget that you can hide layers! Click on the small eye icon to hide a layer’s visibility. This trick is extremely helpful when you deciding on whether you like a certain embellishment.

Textured Wall Art

Textured Wall Art featuring Nancie Rowe Janitz digital products available at www.snapclicksupply.com #hybridproject #snapclicksupply

Hello Snap Click Supply Co fans!  This is Betsy here and I had the great honor of working with a couple of Nancie Rowe Janitz’ kits.  Nancie is such an incredible artist and I loved using her digital artwork to make art for my home.  I wanted to add some texture to the digital print I created and this is how I did it:

  1. I used two of Nancie’s kits to create this wall art. The background is from: Scrap Art Starts 17   and the quote is from: Happy Thoughts.

Happy Thoughts digital word art by Nancie Rowe Janitz available at www.snapclicksupply.com #digitalscrapbooking #snapclicksupply Scrap Starts digital scrapbooking kit by Nancie Rowe Janitz available at www.snapclicksupply.com #digitalscrapbooking #snapclicksupply

I changed the color of the quote and placed it on the background I used.  After resizing my Photoshop canvas to fit the frame I had, I printed the digital work out on a piece of canvas paper.

  1. I pinned the printed canvas paper onto a piece of cardboard to keep it steady. The pins stay in place if you insert and lay the pins flat.

  1. I brushed a Light Molding Paste over the entire canvas. Next time, I would try a heavier bodied paste for even more texture.

  1. On areas that I wanted more texture, I went heavy on the paste.

  1. I painted over the quote to add even more texture and make the quote pop.

  1. I shadowed the quote using a Tim Holtz Distress Marker in pumice stone.

  1. I added a piece of vintage doily with Zip Dry glue.
