Naturally one of the times that you'll need a congratulations card (and this time of year too) is Graduation cards. A nice simple card is all you need, and the colors black and white are a great choice for any graduation card!

Obviously the choices for the beginner hybrid scrapbooker are probably going to be limited so I thought what better than a side by side comparison! The papers that almost every scrapbooker has in their supplies are: cardstock (smooth or textured) and photo paper (glossy or matte). Each one of these can be used for hybrid scrapbooking, and each gives the project a different look and finish.
- Cardstock: I use plain white cardstock a lot for hybrid. First it’s inexpensive and second I have a lot of it. Textured or smooth depends on my project.
- Photo Paper: I print my photo’s at home so I always have photo paper on hand. Photo paper comes in lots of finishes, matt and glossy being the two most popular.
Have fun with Hybrid!

Email me Anita and I'll mail the mag out to you this week!
Final week of the May Manufacturer Monday with Daisy Bucket. I have had lots of fun this month using up the last few supplies I had. That does seem to be key for me doing projects for this theme. I learned that I don't use die cuts that much. I had a few of the Daisy Bucket die cuts but rarely used them. I did force myself this week though, and managed to use a couple.

To cover the take out box, I used that old staple adhesive - the glue stick! I'm a firm believer that the humble glue stick is severely overlooked when it comes to scrapbooking and paper crafts.
More stamping every Saturday
Have a great weekend!

Now you will notice all three cards are based on a sketch from April. I didn't plan on them all being the same, but it just came out that way. I figure if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it.
