There's still time for those of you wanting to catch up and do this challenge, sign up to get your coupon for the templates, here (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7833).

For Day Five of this hybrid minibook project, finish up all pages you are doing for it. And...

Print out your pages! Yay! If you want your book to be more glossy, use picture paper, but if you want it to be more vintage, use cardstock.

I used cardstock for mine. I love the vintage look it gives the pages. Carefully cut out all the pages and put them in order for your book.

I'll try to take a picture and post it, but we've had sick kids here including a sick Mommy:( so it may have to wait until tomorrow.

I am LOVING all your pages! I want to go leave some love before I head to bed. They are all just so awesome! Aren't you just loving them? :)

Got my 10 pages printed out & cut out.That's 20 sides! Inked the edges as Angel taught us in her hybrid class & this makes the edges look really nice. Ready for the next lesson.

I am looking at my family tree book sitting on my desk ready for ShellyMarie's next instruction & I can tell you I really really like it.It feels good to handle. I used cardstock.I have something in my hand to show for my work.
I just got in the mail a photo album I made of my LO's from an online printing site. The edges were all cut off!!!Thank goodness i don't put anything important close to an edge
I'm getting another albbum from a different site in a few days & will see how that turns out. I know I spent more time uploading, arrainging pages, figuring out the sites how to's, etc than I did making my hyrid projects.And had more fun too!! And no cut off edges!

Oh let us know which printing places were better Joanne. I cannot get the printing thing down. I really had a problem printing my pages for some reason. But I definitely prefer cardstock to any other paper for this minibook project.

I am so glad you all are having such a good experience with this! My husband saw mine all cut out but not assembled yet, and he loved it! And he is not easily impressed. haha It is nice to have something to show for all your time and efforts on the computer, huh? :)

I printed mine out on 61# Presentation paper from Staples. Nothing beats that paper. It's the weight of cardstock, but it's actually double-sided photo paper (matte) so it prints exceptionally clear and bright. I found out about it in a free card class and wasn't sorry I bought a couple boxes.
