Journal Digital Kit | Ivytree Studio


"To be creative is to let little pieces of your heart go & place them into each project you make." - Pat Bravo | #patbravo #inspiration #creative:

hello there,

Ivytree Studio  has just released another digital kit specifically for journalling (happy dance).  I created a June spread in my journal with the kit. You can download it here.
It is amazing how we take two hands for granted, I recently fractured my left wrist and am very hampered and not up to intricate scrapbooking but I easily did this little bit of creating.










ADDITIONAL MATERIALS USED  
  • various adhesives
  • spiral bound journal

Vintage Mother's day double layout - Ivytree Studio "Precious Moments" Digital Kit


Hello there

Ivytree Studio gave me the wonderful opportunity to play with their very first digital print kit. Buy Digital kit here.

The idea is that you buy and download the kit,  then print onto card stock, and use the elements to create a layout.  They have made it so very easy to scrap. I used a combination of the downloadable kit and  my stash. The joy of a downloadable kit is you can use is over and over again, especially your favorite elements!



Scrapping about my mum is very bitter sweet.  This month is Mother's Day and also the month of her losing her battle to breast cancer.  She was my best friend as well as a very supportive and interactive mother and grandmother.  These photographs were taken and developed by my dad in the early sixties.  These photos are so very precious.











My mum loved flowers and specifically yellow roses.  These photos are of her as a young married woman before she became my mum.

A Journal by Ivytree Studio

Hello there

Journalling has finally hit South Africa in a big way and I am happy to say you can buy journals just about everywhere.  Ivytree Studio is launching Honey Planners very soon and I am sure this is going to be a winner.  Their paper range has already been designed for use in Project Life and Pocket Pals so this is a welcome addition to the range. I have used a combination of all the ranges to date and I had so much fun putting this together.  These images are from my April pages.
This particular journal is just a cheapy from PNA.



I am a bullet journalizer and this journal encompasses everything in my life, notes, diary, lists etc.












 To add the cardstock inserts, mark the holes with a pencil, then punch them and cut a slit into the            hole, this can then be slotted into the 'spring'. They do not come out but can easily be transferred.


    I have to admit I am much happier making notes in the sections that I have decorated.

Ivytree Studio: Seize The Day card

Hello

A very special friend of mine recently opened her second salon, in our brand new mall and I wanted to make a very special card for her.
The #171 Seize the Day range was the perfect paper for this card, as my friend has truly Seized the Day. Her wisdom and deep faith are an inspiration to me.



This card was very personal and each number, quote and word meant something to my friend.

Card making is not always my thing, but I really enjoyed making this one, it was some downtime in an otherwise crazy week.
