Default I am hybridly challenged

Anybody else?

I'm trying to make my little hybrid album for the hybrid challenge, and I cannot cut in straight line, not even using a ruler and a razor blade. I'm glad you girls and my kids are the only ones going to see it!

I big puffy heart love digital!

Stick with it Kellie - hybrid rocks! You'll get the hang of it. I love doing hybrid projects. I find a metal ruler is better than a plastic one, if that helps.

I love hybrid too and some days my stuff goes in the bin because the lines are wonky! that's the best part of hybrid though beacause I just print off another one

Just think of the Mommy points you'll get from kiddo when it's done

I haven't done much (read: any) hybrid because I have a sneaking suspicion that I will totally suck at it. But I LOVE looking at other people's hybrid projects (and wising I could do it). You aren't alone, Kellie!

My secret to hybrid is a Fiskars Paper Trimmer (cuts a straight line every time) and double stick tape. I don't let a little bit of crooked cutting bother me! The kids love the little projects I make for them, their friends and their teachers. No one is going to care if it's perfect. They will just be impressed that you made it...by hand no less.

You know what else? I feel sick every time I have to print something on my printer. I'll never make it as a hybrid kinda gal. I'm sticking to digital!

I'm challenged too. I *HEART* hybrid, don't get me wrong. It's just everything I try to do looks so 'wonked', you know? The best part of it is the amount of papers, glues, rulers, blades, tools... I'm collecting. Crazy!

This is me, for sure! I love looking at everyone's hybrid creations, but I don't think I'll be much of a hybrid gal anytime soon!

See I think I'm weird because I love the perfectly imperfectness of hybrid and paper. With digital I spend so much time changing my mind and moving random bits around simply because I can. But with paper/hybrid I know by the very nature of the medium it's never going to be as perfect as digital so it's a lot less pressure for me.

This is funny because as a hybrid girl who struggles so much with my digi layouts and probably couldn't even do one without a template, I'm completely and totally in awe of all your digital amazingness!! I am digi-challenged! Hybrid comes so much easier to me, but I have no desire to go back to traditional albums and layouts (I want my albums to be digi), so I still have to struggle through making a digi layout to get my albums done for memory-keeping purposes. But I'm way more comfortable whipping up a card or altered project or fun little mini album - I just feel like I have so much more control when I'm working with my hands and physical STUFF! But I'd love to have one tenth of your digi abilities - would make my scrapping so much less stressful (and probably a lot faster!!).

I *heart* hybrid too - the minute I introduce a photo & journalling, I loose all creativity, and I totally suck at creating my own LO's

I use a metal ruler & craft knife, like Jacinda - but Lynette's right: embrace the imperfection & learn to love the wonky lines, stitching, & remember torn edges are always popular - I bet you use digi ones all the time!
