A Template Deal and a Hybrid Layout

I've been wanting to scrap this photo for the longest time and I finally got it done with a Studio Hillary template. Here's my hybrid layout:

The template I used to make it is a BONUS TEMPLATE available EXCLUSIVELY to Studio Hillary newsletter subscribers when they purchase her upcoming December Grab Bag. The Grab Bag will be up for sale starting this Friday December 11th, but only newsletter subscribers who purchase the bag through the newsletter link will get this extra goodie!!!!!! So go subscribe to Hillary's newsletter now!!! Here's the link: .

Hillary has given me links for my blog readers to be able to purchase the Grab Bags with the bonus template:

Here's the Jumbo sized Grab Bag:

and here's the regular sized version Grab Bag: 

Hillary's templates are great and this Grab Bag is full of great stuff! Check it out!


More about my layout:

I have a wide format printer, but it does not print edge to edge. Soooo, here's what I do if I don't want to lose any edges of the image.  The digi part of this layout are the 2 papers in the middle, the photo and photo mat, and the 3 butterflies on the top.  I didn't want to lose any of this, so before printing, I resized my layout to 11x11 inches. I then printed the layout on 12x12 paper and didn't lose a thing. I wanted a little bit of some paint splatters, so I took the 11x11 layout into the garage and splattered away with grey paint. Then, to make my layout 12x12, I mounted it on a piece of 12x12 background paper (Basic Grey).

I then added the American Craft flower embellies and added the 3D butterflies and sewed a bit around the edge.

I printed off the Rosey Posey Urban Garden butterflies twice. Once on the layout and once on a plain sheet of cardstock. I cut out the second set and layered them on top of the first to get this:

Supplies used for this layout:
digi papers and digi butterflies:  Rosey Posey at  Urban Garden
3-D stuff: American Crafts plastic flower embellies and brads
Background patterned paper: Basic Grey
paint splattered on after printing the template

Isn't hybrid great? Somehow, I 've been using so much more of my 3-D stash since going hybrid!
