2 funny – The Nifty Pixel

Hello lovelies! Time for some hybrid & digi fun again! This time, you will not believe it, I went TOTALLY digital!! Yes, my very first ever fully digital scrapbooking layout. And no, I am not as good as the other digi girls in my team, but for my first ever layout I think I did quite allright 😉

Here is this months GORGEOUS digi collection called „It´s the little things“ – feast your eyes on these beauties:

Fabulous kit, isn´t it? I always, always adore Em´s designs! They are so much fun. Just look at those badges and the brush & stamp set!!! A-D-O-R-E!

Time for some drum roll (lol!)… here is my digi page:

Sanna LippertI´ve played around with the brush & stamp set, some alphas, solid paper & the chicken wire. Quite clean & simple, my page, actually, isn´t it? I´ve done some resizing, layering and fading here. This is all pretty much basics, but if I can do this, you can do it too :).

I used a black and white photo three times on this page. It´s my silly, crazy bunch who I love to bits :-). They make me laugh and happy – a perfect page for the upcoming Valentine´s Day…

Now make sure you hop over to The Nifty Pixel and The Digichick website – there are some goodies up for grabs there and a ton of inspiration from my DT colleagues. Enjoy!!!

Happy digi scrapping,

Xmas hybrid layout tutorial – The Nifty Pixel

A while back I promised to share a tutorial for the hybrid layout called „Xmas“ – created with The Nifty Pixel digi collection called Berry & Fawn. It is almost Valentine´s already, so about time to finally share this..

Sanna LippertSo this is the finished hybrid layout, created with this Berry & Fawn kit:

The Nifty Pixeland this is how I created the layout:

Sanna LippertI first chose the pink toned patterned paper as my starting point and added some Vignette Impressions and bits and pieces from the Elements pack onto that paper. I do all this „prework“ with InDesign and when I am done with the digital layers, I print the paper with my Epson A3 format color printer.

Sanna LippertNext I took a regular light blue cardstock to adhere the hybrid paper on and since the paper is very bold and lively, I printed the photos in black and white. I use a Canon Selphy for printing my photos.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertAfter that I took a golden doily and some hand written words (both a present by my lovely scrappy friend Lizzy – I adore the words!!) and assemblied those next to the the photos.

Sanna LippertSince there is a lot of pattern and detail in the background already, I found that I didn´t need that many elements to accompany, so I pretty much kept with the words and the doily.

Sanna LippertJust added a few wood veneer trees here and there for additional detail.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertNext I punched a few white snowflakes out of the residue piece of the pink patterned paper. They really go with the digi snowflakes so well that almost cannot tell the difference. I hope you can also see the pink glitter details on the background? Well, that is one additional element from the digi collection, not real glitter!! Does sure look like real one, doesn´t it?!!

Sanna LippertNext I added a few white texture spray splatters here and there for additional interest. The spray is by Imagine Crafts.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertFinally I just glued the wood veneer title down on it´s place, added some Stickles onto the wooden elements. It is a Christmas themed page, so some additional glitter is just fine :).

sannalippertSo with just a few bits and pieces and small touches the layout is finished. Fast, fun and easy!!! Hope you enjoyed this little step-by-step!

Happy hybrid scrapping!!

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:

berryandfawnTNPand here is my layout created with this collection:

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!!!
