I have gone Hybrid - temporarily

I have been taking a break from my digital scrapbooking to take on some hybrid crafts.  Definition of hybrid for me is design on computer, print out and assemble.  I am sure that other so inclined would do way more with their hybrid efforts but I am very please with what I have created and how well the scissors and I co-operated.  No glue was required which is a bonus as far as I am concerned so all is well.

There they are those trusty scissors.
So what have I been making you might as. Christmas Cards to start with. Two one for family and friends and the other for the children to take to school for their teacher. They really are the same card with a few alterations.

The Chirstmas card for the family.

Note to self (must find out how to photography cards better like the clever hybrid ladies do)

I used pop dots to elevate the Santa on the card.

Then I saw this advent calendar I simply fell in love with.  Pop over to My Digital Art Studio and take a look.  Here is my version.  I didn't have the tools to do the rosettes so I have improvised.  Infact now that I sit here I have a couple more ideas on how to dress up my advent calendar.

For this i used a gold and glitter covered bamboo Christmas tree, glue dots, bull dog clips, scissors my computer and printer

 I will try and take another photo when I put my other couple of ideas into action.

Inside each little card is an advent activity for the the children with or without me to do. I will try and pop back tomorrow and post those idea.
