I've been having some hybrid fun! The Mouse, Paper Scissors class from Jessica Sprague and Heidi Swapp is in full swing, and I am loving it!!! If it opens again, I would HIGHLY recommend it if you want to learn hybrid!! Here is what I have made so far.

This is a notepad with a cover made from House of 3 and Pink Paislee's soon to be released line - Daily Junque. The paper is divine, and I will definitely want more!! For the stickers on the label, I used some Pink Paislee Sweetness glitter alpha stickers. I realized too late that I did the monogram wrong (my last name initial should have been in the middle), but oh, well! We got to use some new Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Chalkboard in Sprout to spray a white ribbon and make it this lovely green color! I love it!!

Next up I made this card. Essentially they had the card ready made, and I just had to print it out and cut it. We were supposed to have a 2" circle punch for the class, but I bought a circle cutter that could cut many sizes, thinking that would work just as well. Not so - not for me at least. I ended up just cutting out this circle with my scissors... it's far from a perfect circle!! I added the butterfly as an extra embellishment - I got a Martha Stewart butterfly punch recently, so I was happy to add one here!!

These next cards I am REALLY proud of! This first one, they gave us the card and envelope templates and walked us through making this. They are lovely templates!!

I especially love this Thank You banner! I'm so excited to know how to make these!!

Then this second card I did on my own (with the templates.) The monogram alpha is one Heidi made for it - gorgeous, right??? I inked the edges, and as you can tell, didn't do that perfectly, but I'm still pretty darn proud of it!! I love the jewels on it!

And doesn't the inside of the envelope just pop with color??

So, yeah... seriously - loving what I'm doing!!

I'm also taking two other classes right now, and hope to show you goodies from them soon - I don't have my camera most of the time right now as my hubby's broke - he needs one on pretty much a daily basis, so he's using mine. But, I am taking Karen Grunberg's class as Big Picture Classes - Finding Your Way - I won a spot in it from Paperclipping Roundtable!! And the other class I'm taking right now I'm enjoying VERY much, but I haven't actually taken the time to make anything yet. It's the She Art Workshop from Christy Tomlinson of The Scarlet Lime. I am learning so much there too, and hope to find some time this week to make some canvases of my own!
