Fresh Baked! 2/25

Happy last Friday of February!!  I’m probably too excited about that, but I’m just glad winter is almost over.  Well, I hope it is.  Anyway, you didn’t subscribe to the newsletter to talk about the weather.   You subscribed to hear what is going on in GingerScraps land.  Right now, as in today and this weekend, we have new releases.  However, that isn’t all.  Tuesday is March 1st.  This is important because we have a guest designer that will be joining us!!  I can’t tell you who it is.  I mean I could….but what fun is that!  Just make sure you watch out for the newsletter on Tuesday.  This is one designer you won’t want to miss.  Speaking of new designers, don’t forget Ellie’s Lash’s store is 30% off until the end of the month!  You don’t want to miss it!!

Here is something else you don’t want to miss.  A CT call for Daphadilly Art!  Not only is she wicked talented , but she is also wicked nice (sorry, my New England slang is coming through again).  This would be a fun team to be on!


Now for our new releases!!!

Photocowgirl has some new templates called Layers of Happiness!  I just love how unique these are.  These are the multi-photo ones.


These are the Single Photo Templates


You can even get them Bundled.



Here is a new kit by Ellie Lash.  This new kit is called Amused and is just beautiful isn’t it?



Beauty isn’t always polished and perfect; sometimes it is worn and weathered and involves things that stand the test of time. This new kit by Unforgettable Moments will highlight your memories with a touch of rustic charm! The men in your life will appreciate this kit also since the content of this kit is more on the masculine side. With 30 elements, 17 papers, and two full alphas this kit is PACKED with rustic goodness! Regularly priced at $5.00, but through this weekend you can get Rustic Charm for $4.00.

Rustic Charm The Full Kit

“Clock” Plate on Let’s Get Crafty.

First off, before I start my Crafty Thursday post I want to say Happy Birthday to my best friend, my sister Ginger! She is the strongest, prettiest, smartest, best-est sister ever! Oh and make sure you scroll down to the post below to see a little Birthday Secret!

As I was browsing around some of my favorite crafty blogs the other day I came across this oh so pretty plate. I was like, Oh so cute. I could Hybridize that idea! So today for Let’s Get Crafty we are making a “Clock Plate”. It’s not a “Real” clock :). But, it is so pretty hanging on my wall. The original idea came from this lovely Blog HERE, Vintage Sky.

For my version the first step..well the second, the first was to go to the Thrift Store and find the perfect plate. Measure the plate and design a clock in Photoshop, or do what I did and find one in your digi stash! There are tons of kits that have clocks in them! The clock I used was a freebie I downloaded forever ago, by Digital Anemona. Re size to the size you need for your plate and print!

(Don’t mind those little squares at the bottom, those are for some scrabble tile necklaces I’m making)

Then cut it out and use some ModPodge to attach to your plate. Cover it with another layer of ModPodge to seal it.

It will dry clear.

When it’s dray make a little “hanger” on the back like this. I used my glue gun, but it came off a few days then I used super glue. That is holding so far!

Add a long piece of ribbon of lace to “hang” the plate. It’s really being held by the little tab we made. But it looks like it’s hung with the long pretty ribbon. Just tie the long piece to the short piece.

Ta DA! Here is the finished product.

Close up…

That’s it! Easy and cute!

Have a Crafty Thursday!
