Webster’s Hybrid Pages

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. cool ideas there thanks May, and wow those sparklers are so nice, aren’t they

  2. 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!

  3. 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

  4. 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!

    1. 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

  5. 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!

  6. 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.
