Last set of Xmas cards – The Nifty Pixel

Hi there and happy last day of 2015 :-). Well, at least at his side of the world.. I´ve still got a set of Christmas cards to share with you – this time in hybrid. I used the lovely Berry & Fawn digi kit designed by The Nifty Pixel to create these cards.

After printing and cutting into size I added little bits and pieces for additional detail. Very easy and FAST to do and still lots to look at on every single card. I will make sure to share some insights on how I created these, but that will have to be some time next year. Sorry, just could not resist using that phrase. There are no more Christmas themed projects to share anymore – only the two tutorials will be coming up in a few weeks time. For now all I want to do is to

WISH YOU ALL A LOVELY, HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE and all the best for 2016. May the new year be good to you all <3 ! Thanks for stopping by,

Xmas – The Nifty Pixel Berry & Fawn collection

Hello there everyone! Today I´d like to share one more Christmas themed post with you. What can I say, it is THAT time of the year, so the posts tend to be Christmas related…

This time I´ll share a hybrid layout with you – based on a digi kit by The Nifty Pixel called “Berry & Fawn”. This is one gorgeous digital kit!! Lots of beautiful patterned papers (even glitter papers!!), pocket fillers, frames, tags, you name it – all in this fab collection!!!

Here is a peek into the gorgeousness:

Sanna LippertI have used the Vignette Impressions on the background with the patterned paper in pink (from this set). There are also a few bits and pieces added to the background from the Elements pack. A step-by-step tutorial will be coming up soon too, so if you are interested on how I created this layout, make sure to come back for that :).

I loved creating my hybrid layout with this kit! So, so, so much fun! And the “real” bits and pieces in there are from my stash & a present from my lovely scrappy friend Lizzy. Thank you ever so much – I ADORE those b&w words!!! <3

That´s it for today, lovelies. I still have some serious Christmas preparations to do, so I´ll keep it short today :-). Have a wonderful day, whatever you are doing <3

Happy hybrid scrapping!

Spooky! – The Nifty Pixel

Happy Friday!!! I am so much looking forward to this weekend and hoping that I can squeeze in lots of creative free time in my studio. My hands are itching for some creative time!!!

I have not been creating that much the past months – I mean, I never quit creating, but daily life just got in between and I didn´t have the energy to create as much as I used to. Slowly, but surely I again feel the need to create more. And it feels good!

So without further ado, here is an overload of spooky,  hybrid cards!! Created with the lovely Halloween digi kit by The Nifty Pixel called Cadaverous Charm.

Be warned, some of the cards are, well, kinda different… Here goes:

I´ve used only one A3 sized piece of background paper (the star paper from the kit) on the background of almost every single card. Everything else is pretty much from the Elements Pack. I´ve just again printed those images onto a piece of A3 sized paper with my Epson color printer and fussy cut them. Some Glimmer Glaze, glitter glue, stencils & paste and white pen to go with it and these cards were ready in just no time!

And something I came up with while working on these cards – now this might not be anything that special for you, but I just never thought of the possibilities before… I printed the patterned papers from the kit into A3 size (that means FULL A3 paper size of patterned paper!!!). Now that opens up totally new possibilities. Why print only the regular scrapbooking paper size on the A3 sized sheet when it´s much more clever to use the whole sheet surface for printing. That way I can create a layout from the sheet and have enough “leftovers” for cards and other stuff too!!! See here:

…and after realizing the obvious, I was like: “Why on earth didn´t I think of this in the first place!!!” 🙂 🙂 🙂

Happy hybrid times, lovelies!!!

All rolled into one – The Nifty Pixel

Have you already tried a mixed media styled hybrid layout? There is a fabulous mixed media digi kit available at the Digichick store, designed by The Nifty Pixel. Check out the “In Silhouette Vol. I Kit here. This might just be my all time favorite kit EVER! It is so very versatile. You can use the designs for so many kinds of artworks: ATC´s, art journal pages, layouts, pocket pages, cards and so many more.

For additional details and some of my thoughts on creating this page – pls. also see this post at the Nifty Pixel website!! 🙂

This is how I created my layout:

I first assebmlied the Silhouette images onto the background and then added a layer of details/elements from the “Making Marks V.2 Brush Set” over them. After that I printed the paper and cut it into a right size and matted it onto a piece of deep red cardstock. Approximately the same color as the red Silhouettes.

Next I added some metallic texture paste onto the background thru a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil and let it air dry. When that layer was dry, I applied some black Glimmer Glaze droplets here and there and let those dry properly. After that I added some outlining/doodling around the edges by using a black pen.

When I started creating this page, I knew I wanted to create a page for my “me book”. I also wanted it to be “different”. While creating, the lyrics of Alanis Morrisette´s song “I´m a bitch” came to my mind and I knew I wanted to use parts of the lyrics as my journaling. So I printed the lyrics with my black and white printer, fussy cut them and glued them on their places.

I have kept to only a few colors on this layout, so I also wanted to use alphas in similar color. However I had ran out of “l´s” already, so I had to improvise. Number 7 turned upside down gives a great “l”, don´t you think? And creating an “e” out of an “F” and a “dot/square” is also a way to work your way around missing alpha pieces :-). Finally I just outlined the journaling pieces with a black pen to make them stand out from the bold background better and added a few yellow resin embellishments as additional detail here and there.

So all in all this layout is a really easy one to do, yet it is very bold and I love the effect the repeated black and white photos create. I had a blast creating this layout and I really am in love with this kit. If you have been thinking of giving hybrid/digi a try, why not start with this kit. It sure is very versatile and gives you lot´s of creative freedom, whatever you choose to create!

Hope you have enjoyed this little insight.
Happy hybrid times,
xxx, Sanna
