When me and a bridal party I’m a part of were discussing our wedding crafting get together, it made me think “craft parties need to happen more often!”. So I grabbed my sprout and several crafting items and whipped up a little invitation for you. Friends, start crafting up a party.

Last month I took a bunch of veggies and used the sprout to create a collage, that I then made into an iron on transfer to create a tote bag. As mentioned before, photographing items and manipulating them is insanely easy on the sprout, so I wanted to do that again with this craft party invitation. It was pretty well the same set up. What I love about the mat though is that you can get it wet – essential for cleaning up spilled glitter. I had a lot of fun scanning all the items, and learned something new.
Sprout Tip: To reduce the amount of shadow, place your items on the top of the mat. This is as close to directly below the camera as you’ll get.

Since I already went the collage route last time, I wanted to play around with the Sprout a bit more, so I opened up the Martha Stewart Craft Studio. The program has a ton of cute graphics you can use to create cards, invitations, scrapbook pages, and other fun paper crafts.
The Martha Stewart app has 5 themes, each complete with virtual paper selections, stamps, stickers, borders and cut outs. I couldn’t resist the adorable pictures (or ‘stickers’) of macarons and other delightful little treats, so I decided to play and make a birthday party invitation.

Sadly I couldn’t get it to convert to a file large enough to give you all a printable, but I still wanted to make one and show what is possible with the program. I imagine this being a nice alternative to scrapbooking – and much greener too. And the cute little images are really great for creating paper goods such as invitations.

I mean really, don’t those ‘stickers’ just make you want to head straight down to your nearest patisserie? Who wouldn’t want to go to that birthday party.

So depending on the look and feel you’re going for, there’s two ways to create invitations on the Sprout. Personally I like the full control by using the computers own “Create” program, but you just can’t beat the cute options through the Martha Stewart app.
Now, download your invitations and start crafting!

As summer draws nearer, I get more and more excited for farmer’s market season. I always make sure to have my own bag on hand, but I wanted to create one specifically for the occasion. So off I went to pick up some farmer’s veggies to create a printable collage on my sprout.

Sprout is an incredible computer program especially useful for creatives. In the computer is a scanner, projector, and 3D camera. The computer automatically cuts out the background around the image, making it really easy to overlap them into a collage. Scanning is dead easy, and while the software takes some getting used to, it’s super handy once you get the hang of it. Keep reading to learn how I made the tote and get the download below.

I liked the latter more as I could manipulate each piece in the program to the size and rotation I wanted. The image quality and colour is pretty incredible, and the fact that it negates all the background space and makes it transparent makes it SO much easier to use each image.

By touching an image and dragging in a downward motion, an image is transferred onto the mat where it can be manipulated. I’m not going to lie, I felt like I was in the future.

Coming home with my fresh produce and bread in my new tote bag! (You can’t tell with this skirt, but I promise I do have a baby bump going on).
To make your own, download the pdf below, print onto iron on sheets and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to iron it onto a canvas tote bag.
