Hello and Good Friday to you! Have you recovered from Digital Scrapbooking Day? We are still cleaning up around here. There was tons of confetti left all over the chat room floor from the wild speed scraps. We are getting everything back in order so we can do it again Black Friday Weekend. Oh….wait a minute. I don’t think you are supposed to know that yet. Ok, just pretend you didn’t see that. If anyone asks, just deny everything. You don’t know anything about our HUGE sale – oh man, see, I did it again.

While we are talking about new ventures, please allow me to introduce the Editor of GingerScrapsStreet Magazine and a new GingerBread Lady, Dora Phillips.
Hi all! I am Dora Phillips and I am so excited to have the opportunity to put together an amazing digital and hybrid magazine here at GingerScraps. ScrapStreet.com Magazine begins our sixth year with the December issue. A walk back through old issues would showcase a long history with GingerScraps from her days as a designer with us. I have been amazed and inspired by Ginger’s talent and vision for years and am loving the chance to work with her full time.
I design under the name LemonLove Creations. I have long been a fan of the saying “turn lemons into lemonade” and believe that scrappbooking allows us all to do that. We can look at our darling daughter covered in our brand new super expensive lipstick, grab the camera, and giggle. Or we can dig deep into feelings we might otherwise leave hidden if we did not have an artistic way to express them. Scrapping gives me a way to look at the world through lemonade glasses. To see more of my life, come visit my blog anytime!
I am so excited to be joining the GingerScraps Family. You have all made me feel so welcome already and I am looking forward to a great future here!
How much is that doggie in the window? I could not help humming that old song while I was designing. We spent lots of time this spring looking at darling little pups before we found our darling dog Wolfie. For all of you out there loving your furbabies, this is the kit for you. $5.
Autumn Daydreams is a collaboration between Caged Bird Designs, Girlboheme Studios, and Dora’s LemonLove Creations. Before autumn comes I always find myself daydreaming about the season! Colorful leaves, autumn flowers, fall elegance, and beautiful gold tinted dreams are all found in this kit! $6
