introducing maridette cachola …. & hybrid washi tape tutorial!

“Hybrid” scrapbooking is such a thrill… it’s kinda the best of both worlds >>> the instant gratification and infinite use of the digi files with the tangible, touchy feely, real-life scissors and glue-ness of paper crafting!  You may have seen that my NEW ‘digi’ store is finally OPEN! This is just a small start! I am so excited to start growing this shop!

Well,  today I would like to introduce my OFFICAL “hybrid specialist”: Maridette Cachola. Dette is a hybrid DYNAMO, and she will be sharing her brilliance here on my blog!   Today she brings a SUPER fun unique tip: hybrid washi tape!

maridette’s no limits hybrid washi tape layout

Have you ever thought about making ‘washi tape’ out of Heidi Swapp digi paper? I gave it a try & love the results! If you look carefully at my layout, you’ll see the little bits of the No Limits ‘Washi Tape’ I made …

How did I do it? Here was my process.

I adhered tissue paper to cardstock using washi tape to hold it, then ran it through the printer using NO LIMITS digi map paper.

I then cut a strip of the printed tissue paper and ran it through my sticker machine. Voila! No Limits Washi Tape!

For the rest of my project, I printed the NO LIMITS digi paper on 8 1/2 x 11 paper and created a layout.  (Love digi!) In photoshop I printed a Colorful instaframe with my pix in it and added a ‘summer ‘ word on it too. To create the second instaframe,  I transferred over to silhouette and cut it out from there!  I adhered the instaframes with my diy washi tape!! So cute! I can see it in every design!

I also cut out the word ‘getaway’ using my Cameo from white cardstock and misted it.  (Can’t wait to get my hands on Color shine!)

i used the Explore banner, ‘this makes me smile’, ‘liked’, the pink shades and the Explore openable all from the Heidi Swapp digi shop.  With the openable I put together a bunch of photos and placed it behind the summer instaframe to add more photos.

As you can see I used (actual) neon photo corners and trimmings as well.  I have so much fun creating hybrid projects! and I love the option of mixing actual elements with printed ones!

THANKS Dette!! You can visit her blog HERE… I love her creativity…it just oozes! and Stay tuned for more hybrid inspiration!
