Like many of you, I started out as a paper crafter. When I couldn't find the papers and embellishments that I had imagined would go perfectly with my photos, I went to my graphics program and tried to make what I wanted. I would print out what I had made and use it in my scrapbook. I didn't know it back then (it was August 2000) but this was Hybrid scrapbooking, part traditional paper crafting and part digital design, also called Tra-digital.
A few days ago I decided to try a new project and it brings me back to my traditional paper crafting roots. I have started an old-school type scrapbook, with 'smash' type pages (more info on this in my next blog post HERE). The theme is our Halloweens thru the years. I just started, so this is one of the first few pages. I will share more pages as I complete them. For those of you familiar with my digital Halloween kits, you will see that I have printed out several of my papers and embellishments to use throughout this book.
