    Welcome to the April 2018 Hybrid Challenge!

    To complete this challenge you will need to follow the instructions for -- and complete -- one of the two Hybrid How-To" tutorials that will be posted on the The Digital Press blog in April 2018. You will use the Hybrid How-To blog post of your choice (either the 4/7 post or the 4/21 post) as inspiration for your project... and then you'll complete the project and make sure to post the image of your completed project -- both here and in the Challenge Gallery. Now, when I say "inspiration," that doesn't mean a loose interpretation of the project. In order to get credit for the challenge, you still have to create a hybrid project like the one in the how-to tutorial. For example, you can't convert your project into something digital, like a digital card, tag, postcard, etc. Got it? Can you print items from a kit, like papers, wordart, stickers? Sure. However, the rest of your supplies would be tactile, "real" objects - that's right folks ... I know you have a secret stash somewhere of buttons, flowers, brads, tags ... come on, say it with me, "Yes, I'm a supply hoarder!" (says the 100% digital scrapper who still has corner rounders and chipboard alphas!)

    To get you started, here's the first hybrid tutorial for this month:

    Hybrid How-To | Memory Flip Calendars (April 7)

    *****EDITED 4/21 to add our 2nd option for April 2018*****

    Hybrid How-To | Creating Interactive Features (April 21)

    Here are the rules for this challenge:
    • Your creation must be a hybrid project that is based on one of the two "Hybrid How-To" blog posts of your choosing from April 2018 (a second hybrid project will be posted on 4/21).
    • Your creation must be made using 100% TDP products (other than any physical supplies you need), and must be loaded into the gallery no later than 11:59 pm ET on April 30, 2018.
    • Once you've loaded your project image in the CHALLENGE GALLERY, please leave a comment in this thread and link us back to your project in the gallery.
    • Once you've posted your project here in this thread ... copy the URL to that post and add it to the APRIL 2018 TRACKING THREAD.
    • Have fun!

          I used the "Creating Interactive Features Hybrid How-to" to create a tiered page technique on my scrapbook page. Here is the pictures of the layout with the tier open and closed.

            Dragonhome - those are some seriously-cute photos ... and I love how you incorporated the hearts - are they vellum?

              Yes, they are vellum. They are from the "Words to Live By" kit - but I can't see it on the shopping site anymore. I applied the Vellum shadow to it as well.

            Well, this challenge prompted me to pull out the cameo (which I haven't touched in over a year)... it was fun. Very disappointed that I can't get a good image of the pages.... the file was just too large to reduce down without loosing the details But, believe me, it is adorable IRL and my grand niece is gonna LOVE filling it up this summer. I also forgot to attach the bakers twine to the tags before I took the photos (so imagine twine on the tags, okay?)

              Here is mine. I think I want to paint the shadow box black but I will have to do that at a later date. Thanks for the fun idea. I love having a way of using all those cute journal cards.

                Love all these projects! Here is a page in my Travler's Notebook I am making for my son's friend as she is moving away & will be going to a different school. I loved the idea of all the interactive pieces - I started with the easiest -a tag& the pocket, but hope to try the others as well!
