Hybrid Tips and Tricks and Digi-Templates, Oh My!

This past month, I shared a tutorial at the Mouse Paper Lovely blog on the hybrid uses of UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel) and how it can make those digital papers/elements pop and shine.  It’s worth a look-see.  Here’s a link to the tutorial:  Tips and Tricks 3-22.  Head on over to the Mouse Paper Lovely blog every Tuesday to find hybrid tips and tricks shared by the CT.   Then stop by the Digilovely blog for a free template!   On Fridays, Digilovely offers a freebie kit—Yes!  Inspiration and goodies galore. 

Below are some hybrid projects I’ve been working on this month, some using UTEE, along with my Cuttlebug and Cricut, and, as always, digital loveliness from, of course!
