"Any day now" (hybrid double LO)




Hello my blogging friends!  I'm taking a few days off from making cards and will be playing with my digital scrapbooking software.  I am still using the CM Storybook Creator software although I do have the PhotoShop Elements 9 which came with my wide format printer (someday I will sit down and really learn PSE).  As I have mentioned in the past I love digital scrapbooking but I also love the traditional scrapbooking - and I love that I can combine both with the help of my die-cutting machines. 

BTW the pictures were from our family friend's first baby shower from 2008 - she now has 3 children and another one on the way so she got a kick out of seeing these LOs (what can I say, I'm still catching up with very old pictures!) 

After I designed my pages in the StoryBook Creator, I saved them as jpg images and then imported them onto the Silhouette Studio so I can plan the die cuts I want to use. 


Below is a shot of page 2 printed from my wide format printer before I added the die cuts.


And below are some closeups after I cut the images and adhered them to the pages.


I used Cooper Black font for this title, then used the offset
 feature to create the shadow in black.

Credits: 
digital papers and elements from the Baby Girl kit by Scrapper's Delights;  free digital frames, paper and elements from computerscrapbook.com; all die cuts from the Silhouette Store, cut with Silhouette Cameo.

Thanks for stopping by!
