Hello, hello creative people! I’m thrilled to be posting today under the Print & Pray Shop umbrella! I’ll be posting a couple times a week for the digital shop because we want you all to be SUPER inspired in unique ways to use some of those gorgeous printables available to you since the launch!
Did you know that printing digital products & using them in physical projects actually has a special term? It’s called ‘hybrid scrapbooking!’ The word ‘hybrid’ makes it sound difficult & technological &…fuel efficient, right? But all it means is that you use a combination of physical manufactured products & printed digital designs in your bible. That’s it! If you’ve already printed out some of the printables, you’ve been doing the hybrid thing without even knowing it! ;)
Today I have a SUPER bright & fun page I created while taking a little time to frolic in the book of Psalms (because who doesn’t love a good frolic in Psalms!? Such a pretty place to play!) Psalm 55:22 was just begging to be noticed & reading the words, I knew this would be the perfect time to jump on those incredible “Anchored” printables by Kristen Wolbach. The passage reads: “Cast your cares on the Lord & He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken,” (NIV). WOW! He will sustain you! He will provide for you. He will hold you up when you’re about to fall. Cast your cares to Him & He will never let you be shaken. *chills*
One of our talented digital artists, Kristen Wolbach, created a beautiful tag in her “Anchored” set with the words “cast your cares away” & I snatched it up to illustrate this verse. This tag comes white in the printable set, & I printed it on 110# white card stock with a laser printer. You can send your files to your nearest office supply print shop to be printed on a laser printer. The designs won’t bleed nearly as much (if at all) when faced with watercolor or mist as they will on an ink jet printer. I used watercolors on my bible page & on my printed tag to create nice, rich, colors. (This page took maybe 3 layers of paint.)
I even combined Kristen’s beautiful design with the “She Blooms” scrapbook collection from Bella Blvd to give it a completely different look than it might have had otherwise. I was inspired by the words on some of the die cut pieces– to keep blooming while He takes care of you. Keep doing you, cast your cares to Him, & you’re set.
Creating this hybrid page opened up a completely new look for these products. Let your supplies speak to you, & let them work together to create something extra beautiful! The Print & Pray Shop has so many beautiful products just waiting for you to go hybrid!
