$1 Bake Sale, New Monthly Buffet and Guest Designer 3/1

It is finally Tuesday!  You have no idea how many times I wanted to send out a special newsletter to just spill the news early.  I don’t think Ginger would have liked that…although I’m sure you would have!  So now it is time to tell you all the news I’ve been bursting at the seam to tell you.  I’m not sure where to start though.  Do you want to hear about the guest designer?  What about our sales?  Maybe the daily download?  We even have a special offer if you spend $10 or more in the store.  Do you see my dilemma?  What do you think?  Where do I start?

Let’s start with our guest designer.  This is just TOO big not to tell you first.  I mean REAL big.  So….our guest designer….is the one….the only….the amazing….



Oh yes, I said it…THE Connie Prince is guesting with us this month.  I told you this was big!!


I can’t tell you how very excited we are to have Connie with us for the month.  Let me share with you the few places you can follow her this way you never have to worry about losing her!!

We wanted you to learn more about her and asked for a bio from her.  This is what she had to say:

Hi everyone, I’m Connie Prince and happy to be a March GingerScraps guest designer!  I’m married to William (almost 15 years) and we have one son, Hayden, who is 13 years old.  I am a native Georgian and I live just west of Atlanta in what I affectionately refer to as the sticks!  We love country living and enjoy hiking the miles of trails behind our home where we spot occasional wild life like deer and wild turkey.  I’m a full-time work from home designer and I love to scrapbook as well.  Most of my other hobbies have been “consumed” by my love of all things scrap, but I do occasionally still find time to curl up with a good book and I love to watch tv in the evenings as I wind down from my day.  Thanks so much for having me at Ginger Scraps this month, I really enjoy getting to know you and the entire community even better!

Isn’t she just the best?  Would you like to see some of her kits that she has here at GingerScraps?  Here they are!

Aren’t they great?  She has a bunch more in her store to make sure you get them too!!

Now time to talk about other things going on here.   Did you know that if you spend $10 in the store you will get a free grab bag by Wyld Web Designs?  Just add $10 worth of items to your cart and this $11 grab bag will be added in your cart for free!!!

Isn’t that great!!  Let’s see, what else!  OH!  Today is the 1st!  You know what that means, right?  It means it is time once again for the $1 Bake Sale!  We have so many goodies for just $1 today only.  Before I show you the $1 kits, let’s talk about our Monthly Buffet.  In case you missed last month’s buffet and have no idea what I’m talking about – it is an all you can eat (or scrap) buffet.  Each month the GingerBread Ladies will be given a color palette and theme.  They will create delicious goodies just for you!!  You can then  mix and match all you want!   Think about it as a way to customize your own Mega Collab – “eat” as little or as much as you want!

This month’s theme is GingerScraps Pet Shop!  Here is what the designers came up with.


Oh yes, we have that many!!!!  Each piece will be $2 normally, but today they are only $1 so grab them today!  Want to see what else is only $1 today?   Here are just a few!


This is definitely turning out to be a packed newsletter, huh?  I just have 1 more thing to tell you and then you can go back to your day.  Today is the 1st day for March’s Daily Download – Did I mention that Ellie Lash made it?  I didn’t?  Well she did!!  Here is a sneak peek for you – and you can find it on the blog
