Spotlight: Escape to Africa

Hello CT Member Henriƫtte aka Angel Jet here :)
Today I want to put Wendy’s kit Escape to Africa in the spotlight. I’m in love with this kit because of his warm colors and the great African elements in it.
The scrapbooking kit includes 71 beautiful and unique elements, 18 patterned papers and 11 solids. It is also available as a bundled collection which includes also 12 pocket cards in both directions and 4 ready to go pocket templates. So it can be used for pocket pages as well as more traditional kind of layouts.


"I was inprired by the friendship my little girl had with a few African girls. They were dancing and playing together and my daughter and I were both amazed at the beautiful colors they were wearing. They preformed a beautiful and typical African dance. This was the moment I told myself I wanted to make an African inspired collection. With Africa we also think about all the beautiful animals who live that made it even more fun, to add a little bit of zoo inside as well as a little escape. It all turned out into a beautiful, colorful, warm African collection that can be used for any zoo pictures as well."

This is what Wendy said about her collection. It attracts my attention even more because my daughter spend one month in South Africa last February doing volunteering work at a wildlife project for monkeys. She made gorgeous photos on a tour in Kruger Park which I can use for my layouts. This kit fits perfect with the photo of my daughter between monkeys at a volunteer project in South Africa.

And now let us see a few layouts which I have found in the gallerie of DST.

I like the circled cutouts tucked under the pictures.

It´s a perfect example of a pocket page using Escape to Africa.

By Stellamarie:
A layout which caught my eye. I love the positioning of the African elements on the left border.

By ArisaMinamoto:
A wonderful way to use the kit to make a pocket page layout. Because of the black and white pictures the colors of the kit stand out even more.

The Escape to Africa Digital Scrapkit and Bundled Collection are both available in the stores @


I hope these kit have inspired you to record a few more memories, and also to think about how to use the bits and pieces of these kits in different ways. Have a great week and happy scrapping!
