As a Design Team Member of Ivytree Studio, my latest brief was to test run the new "e-zee Scrap Printable kit" called "Wild & Free Precious Moments" - a digital, double scrapbook layout kit - now available in the Ivytree Studio store. I was asked to create the layout exactly as in the provided sketch - no fancy alterations - to enable YOU to see how easy it is to use this kit.
As I work extensively with digital products from my own Digistamps4Joy shop, I was excited to try out this digital scrapbooking kit, having never created a scrapbook page with anything other than bought papers! Bit of a long post, but worth the read if you are using this kit.
Wow, what fun I had! This is my completed double page layout.
Instructions for using the downloadable kit
Once purchased and downloaded to your computer, the kit is in a PDF file format, with 9 pages of guidelines, a good sketch photo of the completed layout, and the exact sized elements needed to complet…
Ivytree Studio is celebrating its 1st BIRTHDAYwith a Paper Party! When: 22nd April 2017 Where: Online at Ivytree Studio Facebook page Time: 16h00 South African time What to bring: Yourself, and the Party Pack if you were able to purchase it. If not, definitely yourself!
Obviously as a Design Team member I cannot participate in the challenge - it would not be fair if a DT member won the prize would it! BUT, I was able to make some creations with digital Ivytree Studio Layout Sketch Kits.
The first Ivytree Studio layout I used is this one ....

I was able to print, scan, and cut with my Brother machine, and it worked fine.
My first layout - using ISDLS0018 January 2017 was a special HAPPY day for me, as my 3 eldest grandchildren were all baptised as followers…
Woohooooo! My favourite craft is playing with paper to create 3D items, and this specific project has been the biggest challenge to date - BUT I achieved it!
I absolutely LOVE the 3D cutting files available at SVG Cuts, and when this one was made available I knew I had to try it. Funny thing is that when I started cutting all the various pieces out, I suddenly realised that the end product is going to be much much bigger in size than I envisioned! It is 41cm (front width) x 27 cm (side width) x 27 cm (height to top of chimney). There were so many pieces of shaped papers that I had to sort them out into different sleeve packets so I would not lose them. This is what my desk looked like - a HUGE mess!
After spending 20 hours putting this all together, my daughters and I created a scene with: a draped white tableclotha snowman made out of polystyrene balls (granddaughter helped with that one)a pathway made by spraying glue onto a strip of paper and sprinkling pool filter sand on ittwo tr…
