Hybrid Goodies

Thought I'd share a couple of hybrid goodies I've created recently but haven't had a chance to post on the blog.

First up is this SUPER cute Cookie Wrap Template by Kelleigh Ratzlaff that releases today at the Digichick. I made 2 versions of this wrap and they were SOOO easy! Kelleigh's templates come in both a lines-only pdf version (so you can print it out on your cardstock and use your paper supplies) or as a layered psd file so you can use your digi papers in photoshop to design your project. The cookie wraps are designed to fit around a handful of cookies standing upright. You can wrap the cookies in cellophane, put them in a pretty frosted bag like I did or even in a paper sack! I chose to use the lines-only version for both of my Cookie Wraps and they turned out so so cute:
Supplies:
Cookie Wrap Template by Kelleigh Ratzlaff (the Digichick)
Paper: Kraft CS; Metropolis DT (Scenic Route)
Accessories: frosted bag (PTI); chipboard star (Scenic Route); buttons (Basic Grey); hemp twine

And don't limit yourself to cookies with this template - it's perfect for other goodies as well - I wrapped up some Hershey's nuggets here and put them in the frosted bag and it's just as cute as the cookies!!
Supplies:

Paper: Kraft CS; printed digi papers from You Don't Know Me by Shawna Clingerman (Sweet Shoppe)
Accessories: frosted bag (PTI); Chocolate Chip ribbon


Next is this altered desk accessories set I created using a new Verve Stamp, some super cheap bare wood desk accessories I picked up at my local craft store, and printed digi papers from the C'est La Vie kit by Zoe Pearn (Sweet Shoppe) (sorry, the Sweet Shoppe store is down right now so I can't post links, but I'll try to come back later and add them if I remember).

I painted the wooden items with white acrylic paint, then covered with my printed digi papers using Mod Podge. For the letter holder (which I'm using to hold card bases on my craft work area) I added some physical embellishments including silk flowers dyed to match the digi papers using Copic markers. I stamped the new To Risk Plain Jane in Versafine Vintage Sepia directly on the printed digi bracketed journal box, cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. Here's a closer look:

So that's it for my Hybrid Goodness today! It's going to be a busy weekend here on the blog, so be sure to stop back by to see more fun projects from Verve, Clear and Simple Stamps and a few challenge submissions!
