Gloria (Designs by Gloria Val Verde) is a much-loved member and administrator at Ivy Scraps.  To show Gloria that she is truly appreciated, the Ivy designers have put together a blog-train of gifts using a colour palette that we know Gloria will like.  If you want to grab these beautiful designs, start by visiting   IVY’S BLOG  and follow the train from there.


Welcome to Ivy’s world.  We may not be the largest digital scrapbooking site on the web but we’re certainly the friendliest.  I know that because???

  • the tone of forum posts is one of caring and support
  • the gallery layouts are acknowledged and rewarded through our Layout of the Month program
  • our challenges are fun and participants are rewarded with freebies
  • we sympathize and empathize with each other in our weekly general discussion and prayer threads
  • scrapping help is only a question away
  • our Bingo game thread is always full of fun and laughter (LOL’s) and it, too, offers a participation reward
  • admin has a real concern for the members

Now, add to that a great creative team and designers that fill the store with beautiful, reasonably-priced scrapbooking supplies and you may well consider Ivy Scraps a “happy place” for those who love to make scrapbooks.  Come in and see for yourself. 

This gorgeous kit collection, Picture Perfect, is FREE when you join our forum.  Just click on FORUM in the menu on the right to register.  I should mention, however, that if you don’t want to be a member of our community, the minikits that are included in this collection can be purchased individually in our store.  Just click STORE in the menu on the right.

Let’s play BINGO!!!  I know this is not actually a challenge, but it’s tons of FUN and everyone who plays in the April game receives this lovely mini by Waite for the Moment Designs; that’s Jan, who also hosts the monthly event.  Keep reading … that’s not all because, of course, in every Bingo game there must be a winner and the April winner will receive a set of beautiful quickpages from Joanne of Joanne K’s Scrap Stuffs.  If you want to play, you’ll need to tell Jan that you’re playing and this must be done by the 10th of April so hop on over to the forum (see menu on the right) and get set to play BINGO!
