Welcome to the initial post of the new hybrid scrapbooking section of the blog. Here we will cover hybrid scrapbooking, but also cards, home decor, educational projects and much more. So now’s the time to dust those printers off and blend digital with traditional.
Today’s focus will be on calendars. Calendars and January go hand in hand and there is such a variety of calendars and calendar related products at Designer Digitals. Paula, Janet and I have created three different styles of calendars to showcase just some of that variety.
First up is Paula Gilarde. She created this wonderful 2010 calendar and personalized it with photos. For each photo, she used a variety of photo masks/fotoblendz. Wouldn’t this make a wonderful gift? After printing her pages she bound them together using a bind-it-all tool.

Easy Living Kit For my project, I wanted something simple to add to my family’s organizational spot (aka the side of the refrigerator). I printed off the CD calendar, inserted it in the cases and then added magnets to the back. Something I found helpful when printing a page like this with was to use the stroke function to create cutting lines.

Along with the new blog posts, there is also a new hybrid scrapbooking section in the challenge gallery. We’ll be featuring projects from members in the future. So if you create a calendar or other hybrid project, please post them there. I look forward to seeing your creations!
