Webster’s Hybrid Pages

Standard

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Webster’s Pages. How could I not be?! They’re super nice over there and they design amazing, beautiful stuff.

Want in on a secret? In my Big Picture class that starts on the 25th (in one week!!) there is a bonus handout showing how I use their digital products (available at www.websterspages.com) + their paper goodies one of the weeks. I really like how beautiful the products are – and they are very easy to work with.

Yes, everything can be used in Word. Just insert the images (photos, papers, embellishments – they’re all “pictures” in Word) 

When you do that, you can go pull up files that you want to play with…

Then just arrange as you like. For this page I used images (sized small) and my handy underscore key _ _ _ to create journaling papers. I also printed a patterned paper sized to 6×6. This whole deal? 7 minutes tops!! I’m a big believer in doing things the easy way – and that hybrid does not = hard. To get your ___lines___ so close to the images just make sure you change the orientation from “in line with text” to “tight”. Then you can add in lines at will. I skipped a line in between to give myself more space.

Time to print onto cardstock and PLAY!

Just cut out & go.

If you’ve got extra that’s ok. Just save for future use!

Webster’s Pages designs such beautiful stuff – most of the things I used in this layout are from their Postcards from Paris line. *so* pretty.

I also used (American Crafts) embossed cardstock brushed with bundled sage distress ink.

I love that they do vellum and unique embellishments too. 

 I like how quick & easy I can print & use their digital offerings.

www.scrapbook.com carries a lot of their stuff – and I see that www.twopeasinabucket has their new 2010 papers in already!

I’m debating what I want to buy first – while waiting for the trims, sparklers, and other dreamy bits & pieces to release! In the meantime, I’ll keep making quick & easy digital pages.

Happy Crafting!

  1. Love your page but where did those buttins come from? I soooo love those! Thanks for all the tips! I am slowly getting into some hybrid! Shhh don’t tell anyone. I swore I would NEVER go there! LOL!

  2. So beautiful May. I never thought about the doing my journaling blocks like this. So much fun! Can’t wait for next week to come. Enjoy your weekend 🙂 ME

  3. love, love this! So sweet and so beautiful! I also love your approach to digi stuff. I have pse, only use about a tenth of it’s abilities (if that!), like your straightforward approach and that you aren’t encouraging anyone to buy pse or the big $ money version! So nice to see someone encouraging people to use what they have!

    • It’s all about using what you’ve got – for sure! PSE has some good things that you just can’t do with a word document, it’s true. But until you feel like you will use it, no need to run out & buy. 🙂

      I hope you’re joining me in class!!

      may

  4. I was debating taking this class (I have a VERY OLD version of PS but considering getting PSE), and now you convinced me. I would love to learn and experience your ideas (play around in Word and my old PS) and then decided if I want to buy PSE. Looking forward!

  5. Love what you’re doing with Webster’s Pages, although it’s a bit too girly for me. I adore those vintage sparkler buttons, too!
    Looking forward to class starting next week.
