It’s the DYI Hybrid time. Pencil wraps from digi papers!

How fun is that? I have these pencils that I made for my daughter’s back to school fun. I like to decorate her glue sticks with washi tape and now her pencils I made a wrap. Of course the schools  have you buy a ton of them right off the bat and I have to have a ton at home too. So I made this for her pencil jar…


Here is a close up of the wraps using jute and twine to finish them off!  How cute!


Something special for you if you want to give it a try you can download the free printable SAMPLES OF WRAPS to make your own with Juliana and Traci’s kit they made together, as their Future is So Bright.  All you have to do is cut them apart, I used regular copy paper to print them on as cardstock was to think to stick.  ATG away and wrap it up!  Lots of fun goodies in there!

Have tons of fun… until next time…


Hello again, I am back for some more inspiration with Juliana Kneipp’s digital products.  I searched for some word art that she had done, I took these word art elements from a kit and traced them on my Silhouette designer edition software.  Cut them out with a kiss cut on vinyl and added them to some tile I bought at the hardware store for about .19 cents a piece.


I took a roll of cork board (you can get them at craft stores) cut them to the 4×4 size of the tile,  glued it under so it doesn’t hurt the furniture.


Perfect for my family!

I love the word art it always gives me new ideas!  You will see more on the blog next Friday with SnapDragon Snippets. Silhouette store design on my next two coasters!  I may mod podge them to see how well that works too.

Hope this has inspired you!


Hi this is Lissa Marie I am here to show you today a hybrid project that I made with Juliana Kneipp’s, “Camp your Adventure” Digital kit it comes in a bundle or you can buy them separately.  But first of all I want to show you what I have made with this kit!  I found this candy jar at a yard sale thinking I am going to etch something on this but then I was helping out another gal on the blogging team with a project she had planned and got carried away.  I made the shape with the pen tool in Photoshop, then opened up the template (shown below), resized it and clipped it to the shape and started adding in papers and elements! Didn’t it just turn out fabulous?  A little accent of ribbon gave it a pretty look, and printed out some journaling cards so I can have them available as I go, ready to put into the pocket pages!  I do traditional and digital pocket pages, so this is a win win for me!  Have those cards preprinted and write down those moments you don’t want to forget while you are still in the moment and store them for when you are ready to put them with your photos!


This was printed this on photo sticker paper so I can just stick it to the side, but I didn’t realize it wasn’t a flat surface until I had it printed so I used glue dots behind it which worked out just fine!

This is a preview of the whole bundle, it is cram packed full of goodies, printables, pocket cards or a kit with all the papers and goodies.  You can buy them separately or together.


I also used her “alot of photos” template that she had up for iNSD.  I am very pleased the way it turned out.I used the 3rd template shown here


Juliana would love for you to enjoy a printable download provided, I have changed the shape for you since this is not the usual shape you put on a jar or can, to accommodate other types of shaped holders.  You can even use a coffee can if you like.  I have made many pencil holders and such for things like this.   Use your imagination it goes far! You can get even more freebie kits and templates on Julianna’s Blog, she has tons of giveaways if you didn’t already grab them from iNSD!

Happy Hybrid Crafting!

Hybrid Project – Creating Coasters

Hi this is Lissa here for your Hybrid inspiration!


I am soo excited to share this post with you because they turned out sooo beautiful! Using Julianna’s

 A friend like you

  Digital Designed kit I made some coasters, with the digital papers and elements.  Here I just put them together in Photoshop, visioned them like I wanted, then took the layers to another canvas to print and cut.

Once I did that, I had already started before deciding to take the photo of the process to show you how the layers are out and I glued them on with mod podge.

IMG_7804  I got the tiles at Home Depot or something like that, and some round felt for the bottoms.

As I started, I modpodged the background paper the night before and then the next day did the layer, adding a coat of sealant to protect them.  I just love them.  They look just as I wanted them to in the end!

Here is the final product!


Yes, these are the real deal!  I intended to make 5, but I realized quickly that I didn’t have that many tiles, so I ended up with 4 favorites!  You don’t have to have a print and cut machine to do this.  You can also hand cut them as well if your designs are not so intricate.  I think I want to do it all over again with another kit, on my Photo Sticker Paper!  That would be awesome!

Thanks for taking a peek. I hope it has inspired you to make some for yourself!

Which kit is your favorite to try this with?

Hello friend, Hybrid Card

IMG_3577Hi this is Lissa here, showing you a little hybrid work on what you can do with Julianna’s wonderful digital elements, from the Sweet Shoppe Designs.  Today I have made a friendship card, I loved the idea of using her butterfly and making it 3D.  There were so many elements in her kit “A friend like you” it was hard to choose what to put on the card!

I used the standard 4.5×5 card, and just started adding the elements that I wanted into the Silhouette DE software.  Yes, you do not have to have additional software to make these beautiful elements to print and cut.  I arranged them just so, then printed with the registration marks showing, then put the paper into the Cameo Silhouette.  I just LOVE my machine!  When the cut was all done I took an Xacto knife and cut into the rose to add a layered look.  Now I love my machine even more doing hybrid things… oh I have a really good project for you next month to excited not to bust it out!  Not just a card or a layout.  It is something fun fun fun!  So stay tuned to Julianna’s blog for details.

DYI Hybrid Project for Julianna Kneipp Designs. Card making idea

Hi this is Lissa here and I am here to show you a quick way to make a card featuring

 Julianna’s “Lights, Camera, Action” Kit



First I just added elements onto a blank 4×6 canvas into Photoshop, It took about 4 photo papers because I wanted to print extra elements,  if I needed.  Once I made the canvas in PS, I added the background to one page, then elements onto the canvas &  filled it with the other pages. I started with making the movie cards then elements, resizing them very small to fit many on a 4×6.  Planning to cut them with my cameo but decided it was faster to do by hand.   Using some double sided foam tape I randomly put on some of the images for dimension.  Pretty easy to do, then just randomly started adding the elements.  Love the card, hubby will enjoy it since we really need a “Date” night right now!  All in all once the idea was set it took me about an hour to make this little card that is just fun to look at!  It’s much different then I am use to, this could get to be a new addiction! Why don’t you give it a try?  Love Love Love it!

Thanks for tuning in for this tutorial, when I do one for Julianna I have to share  here too and show it off!  I would love to see yours, or help anyone out if you need it!
