As promised here is the hybrid version of 'Memory Keeper' ;)

Here is a close up...

Gotta love it when a page comes together so easily here are some quick shots of the process, maybe you might give hybrid a go too when you see how easy it is. So here's how I did it...

Step 1:
I isolated all the digital elements from my digital version of the page and dropped them into a word doc so I could print it off. 
Tip: Before printing I enhanced the brightness and set the printer to CMYK colour mode to ensure the colours were as close as possible to the original image.

 Step 2:
After printing off the elements I prepared them so they were ready to use on the hybrid page version. 

 Step 3:
Using a stencil I found at a Vinnie's Store and Versa Color ink 183 Cement I was able to replicate the grey stripes onto the base cardstock.

 Step 4:
I overlayed the cardstock ontop of a 12X12 'Circle Grid' Crafters workshop template.
Tip: Make sure each layer is taped into position to prevent any movement.

 Step 5:
I debossed the cardstock by carefully rubbing the surface using a paper creaser to create this fabulous debossed circle grid pattern.
Tip: When using this technique on plain coloured cardstock make sure your tools are clean to prevent any unnecessary dirty scuffs and marks.

 Step 6:
After printing off the word art onto a sheet of Grafix Rub-Onz I carefully positioned it onto the base cardstock making sure to align it. (NB: You can now purchase Grafix Rub-Onz at Paper Stories here.)
Tip: Use a chizler or the longer side of your paper creaser to remove any
bubbles and achieve a clean fixing.

Step 7:
When the top plastic layer of the grafix rub-onz turnes a whiter opaque colour you can lift an edge and peel back the layer to expose the underside which is infact your customised rub-on design.

So there you have it...the hybrid version of the digital page I did for CSI Casefile #37 on my previous post which you can see below or here.
