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!

OMG, I don’t know how I am ever going to live the iNSD!

So many freebies and give-aways for digitals everywhere!

Digi Kit, Printables, Papers, Elements, Pocket Cards all on Facebook blog trains, Digital Scrappin’ Freebie Facebook group doesn’t help me stay away from it all, I am finding, games, speed scraps, you name it, it’s everywhere!  Where in the world have I been??

My favorites are the Sweet Shoppe Designs,  Lily Pad, Pixels and Company, The Digi Chick and so many more!

They have something for everyone, and Pinterest is always a killer for free fonts and Pocket Journaling cards any kind of printable you want for anyone who knows how to print an image even without an image editor!

I can say that the mourning over my last failed hard-drive is starting to soothe over!  Kids are gone and I have gone wild on the net!  Digital Pocket Page Protector, Printables, Full Kits, even a little scrappin’ in but I didn’t even use a kit!  Plus I taught myself  how to make digital pocket page protectors on my own so now I have every layout at my finger tips!

There has been some great kits out there, some I almost bought Just Jamie’s May Story Book Collection it’s such a killer deal!  But I held back and collected my favorite newly discovered sites that I downloaded from, subscribed and I can pace myself.  That’s tough to do when you know what great sales there are right now.  My favorite designer of all is having the biggest freebie I have seen on the net, (yes I am partial to her because I blog for her too… I feel like one amazingly lucky girl!)  So I have to share with you her amazing work and her give-away too.  Not just because I blog for her either!  LoL

This opportunity to see her work and fall in love.  If you like vintage, unique, fun, neat things this is the place to go!

Welcome to the LOVE STRUCK Blog hop brought you by The Krazy Crafting Crew

So Many Crafts, So Little time“.


If you have never hopped before it is fun and inspiring, so grab your favorite drink and stay awhile for these inspirational valentine projects that are linked one after another.  I have provided a layout sketch and a card sketch for the team to go with, and have them show you their take on how they will interpret  this piece of art.  They only have to one or the other, I chose to do both, stick around for the blog candy that I am giving away for those who have stopped by.  Here are the sketches..

                                 layoutsketch       cardSketch


Now for my inspirational take on these.


I was so excited to find this sketch.  it would give me a chance to doodle away.  So I made the doodles on each side, added some ribbon from My Life In Arts n Crafts Facebook group and a pic  of my daughter’s valentine card I made that year, a loooong time ago!

Then I was soooo excited that I had to make the card too!


I had some left over digital products from a project I did and couldn’t resist using them, and not wasting them.  I gave it to my kids, they loved it so much they smashed it!  Arggh!  (not on purpose)

We all appreciate you stopping by and checking out all the projects, we all love that comment lovin’ so please feel free if you like even if it was just to let us know you were here!  We love visitors too!
