Well! I am a scrapbooker, a crafter, an artist and all these dreamy things. With Inkscape I create most of my digital scrapbooking, but it's also my best tool for creating wedding-cristening and party invitations which is my real job. With it I have made a lot of freebies for my blog and once I participated in a challenge that I changed a plain photo to a prospective one using Inkscape and I had such a fun time!
Years ago, to the previous type of Inkscape that I had, I had managed to add an extension and I had it connentet with my cut machine. A lot of SVG's had been created then...

Oh, that's awesome!  I've been thinking of trying some scrapbooking, but I never thought of using Inkscape for it.

Do you print directly onto card stock?  Or do you print on paper and glue it onto the heavier pages?

Oh no, I might have to get a printer now....haha!  Not sure if I would want to get a cutter....but it's tempting to think about!

For the invitations it's different every time, cause of the choises on fonts, colours etc, the clients will make. So, I make an individual work on every invitation. The original file I place it on a A4 or A3 paper file (resing it to feet as many times as it can), according to the model of the invitation. If it's a self fold invitation it takes one on A4 or two on A3. If it's for a complicated / art invitation, then it takes more (cause these I cut and glue on another part of the invitation). I prefer to export this on png or jpg so that any extra printing will not have any changes on colours or dimensions. It also this way it gives me a good porfolio that potential clients can see...
For scrapbooking... well on this version I haven't the extension of cutting... mostly because my cut machine isn't working any more... so, till I buy a new one.... I make a lot of transfer prints though. Quotes I like on jpg, they are perfectly mirrored with inkscape, and printed so that I put them on any of my art work with transfer's technique!  :wink1:

Can you explain more what you mean by "transfer print" or "transfer technique"?  Do you just mean that you print it out?  Or print onto some sticky paper or something?
