This gotta be the most asked question to a digital scrapper. I started my "scrapbooking life" doing digital layouts. But only after few months, I started buying scrapbooking papers and was never he same again.
But back to the question. The reply is "whatever you want". I used to print mine. I designed A4 pages and printed them.
I haven't done a pure digital for ages now, but most of my layouts have a digital component, sometimes only the title or journaling, but often I design the whole layout in PSE. That is, I sketch in the computer instead of using paper and pencil.
Like this one:
My idea was to use a rubbon on the top of the blue paper, but the dingbat worked so well that I decided to reproduce the whole layout in paper as it was, so I:
- printed the photo.
- printed the journaling and dingbat in a cardstock with a similar shade of blue
- got a dark brown cardstock and put all the elements together.
What you're seeing is the digital version. It is a digital layout, a very simple one. The paper one it what you'd call hybrid, but only just.
By the way, the layout is about my mini techno-geek of a son. :-)
