I’ve been playing around a bit lately with hybrid layouts. And I’m having fun learning new things to try in Photoshop Elements. But I’m always excited to learn more! Do you wish you had a better understanding of Photoshop Elements? I recently discovered that my friend Melissa Shanhun from Digital Scrapbook HQ has a huge stock of PSE training videos! Just check out her YouTube channel!
Here are a few of my current favorites (or favourites for my Aussie friends):
There are so many more over there! And of course Melissa has classes too. Thanks Melissa for sharing so much PSE inspiration!

I’ve been trying my hand at the Cathy Zielske style of hybrid layouts. It’s so fun to try something new and find ways to put my own twist on it!
- Design Inspiration: I created this layout following the process and design from Week 2 of Clean & Simple the workshop.
- Color Inspiration: I just love turquoise, pink, and green. Seemed like I should use some favorite colors on a layout about our blessings!
When I am using a sheet of pattern paper to create a border around the page I hate wasting all that paper behind the top layer. So I often will cut out the center of the background paper. In this case I left a 1 inch border around the edges but cut out the center. Then I use some washi tape to attach the top layer to the background frame. Now I have the center piece of pattern paper to use again on another layout!
I love Cathy Z’s clean and simple design but I just can’t keep from adding a few embellishments, and of course washi tape! You know how I love washi!
I’m not usually one to mix color and black and white photos. But I loved the way it looked on Cathy Z’s example layout so I gave it a try. And it really turned out great! And now, here is the full layout again so you can read the journaling.
Having so much fun in this class! I’m a little behind on the assignments though. Hoping to have some time next week to get caught back up!
