Weekly Wrap-up: March 25, 2012

Um, okay, HI! Sarah here. I’m a little discombobulated. When the HECK did it become Sunday? Where did the week go? It fly by for anyone else? I think it flew by for us, here, because it was SPRING BREAK!!

Oh, and taking advantage of this AMAZING sale!!

Seriously! Go check it out! LOTS of awesome items. I almost cried when I saw a few things that were being cleaned out soon :’(

Whatcha getting?

Yes, I’m going to talk about this again! Remember, there’s a chat on Saturday!! 😀 I’m going to be participating for a bit, and then I’m gonna have to run for Girl Scouts. Our last official meeting until we have our Banquet. Minus camping and a troop trip.

Anyways, speaking of the chat, which brings up the forum, let’s go be nosy and see what big discussions are going on!

Do you know anything about online backup? HarmonyStar would really like your input on the best. She wants to be able to back-up her .zip & .exe files. Any suggestions?

As you know, book club is about the Hunger Games for March. So, the movie’s been officially released. Did you see it? Have plans? Share with us!

Okay, enough of that. Honestly, the gals really like to pull up the old threads, so there wasn’t a whole bunch of new, unless you count ones I did, and well, I feel weird pimping out my own threads, 😀 Anyone else feel like that?

Holy crap! I’m full of questions!! I’m going to just move on to Facebook! You did know Gingerscraps has a Facebook, right? You should check it out!! Why? Here! I’ll tell you why!!

Twin Mom Scraps has a freebie linked up. Pretty sweet right!

You can take a guess on the Mystery Designer! Who do you think created the template.

There I go asking those questions again! :O Man, what is up with that? Okay, shutting up now, before Shannon pulls the plug on my blogging gig!!

I hope you enjoyed the post, and found out something you hadn’t know that had happened the past week! See ya again next week!!

Team Spotlight: Sugar Cookie Michelle

Good morning everyone!  Happy Hunger Games! (I couldn’t resist! It’s finally here! We went and saw it first thing yesterday, and I LOVED IT!)

Lot’s of exclamations today, despite not getting much sleep (little one is sick) and being so gloomy weather wise.

So lets get to the fun! 🙂

This weeks Team Spotlight is on Michelle, but you may know her as MSPeeler in the forum.  She is CT for so many of our great designers here at GingerScraps.

I’m Michelle (29). I’m married to Dave and we will be celebrating 10 years in April 2012, if you do the math, we got married when I was 19 & still going strong.  We have 2 beautiful children, Priscilla (5) and Luke (3). We also have 1 dog, Zoe, a Siberian Husky (1 yr), and 1 cat, Yoko, a grumpy ol cat (8 yr). Our other dog, my first furbaby, Chino passed away in March 2011 of this year at the age of 8, he would have turned 9 last May  I am a stay at home mom now, but before I decided to stay home, I worked at a Veterinary Hospital for nearly 8 years.

Aww, my pup’s birthday is in May. He’ll be 5. We’ll have to have a doggy toast to Chino. 🙂

She shared some lovely pictures of her beautiful family.


How long have you been scrapping?

I have been playing with Photoshop since 2002, but not digital scrapbooking till 2010. I started out making “siggies” for my mommy board, and decided to branch out for some challenges on this forum and got engulfed in fun!

What is your favorite element to scrap with?

Oh gosh! I don’t normally reuse elements, as I dont normally mix/match kits for layouts with the exception of the awesome Buffet items! I’d have to say Marie H’s shadow styles.

I’d ask you your favorite designer, but you’re on so many CT teams, that I’m sure it’d be hard for you to choose! So how about your favorite NON CT designer? Or even what other designer would you LOVE to work with?

LOL! Well, I would absolutely love to work with Jen Yurko. 

Which do you think is your very best (favorite) LO (can be old or new)?

I think my very favorite layout would be this one. I just love it’s simplicity in colors and the small framed/unframed clustered photos.

I absolutely love it! The muted colors, and the clusters too. Of course baby pictures make everything perfect. 🙂

How about the one you wish you could makeover?

I’m just REALLY not happy with this one. It’s not the kit or pictures… it’s just over clustered I think! I will probably re-do it soon!

What’s your favorite challenge during each month, the one you always tend to finish first?
I always finish the Template challenges first. I love having a template to go with, releives the “stress” factor 

You’re not alone there! I love doing the templates too (now that I had some help figuring out just HOW to do a template! 🙂 ).

What’s your favorite subject to scrap?

MY KIDS! Hands down.

If you could create a slogan for DigiScrapping, what would it be?

Oh gosh! Way to put me on the spot, haha! Probably “Visual Memories to Share”

Tell us something we don’t know, either about yourself or any one thing in particular that is a fun random factoid you know.

I met my husband on AOL back in 1997, when I was only 14 ½. He was 19, and we were just friends… for the next 5 years. When I turned 19, I came to visit him 500 miles away, and instantly felt the connection… it really was love at first sight. We married 4 months later and the rest is history!!

I love little stories like that!

What are you obsessed with?(besides digiscrap 😛 ) Can be a book, author, movie, TV show, hobby, anything. Something you just LOVE and totally geek out over all the time any time!
The Beatles! I just really, really love them. Grew up listening to them with my Daddy, and I just have fabulous memories  Their music is an instant calm for me.

So there you have it, Michelle in a nutshell! (I’m such a poet, LOL!)  Here is a link to her gallery. Go check out her BEAUTIFUL layouts and leave some love.

Before I leave you all today, I’ve got to share with you this AMAZING sale going on in the GS shop

I checked out the goods last night, and am definitely filling up my cart. It’s crazy awesomeness! Stock up on great kits before they are gone forever!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! May your coffee cups be bottomless and your children’s naps last all afternoon. 😉

Have a great day!


This Week’s Sneak Peeks!

Well, it’s been a rough night here at my house with the little one. He’s almost 2. Seems like he is dreaming and crying in his sleeep and won’t wake up when we go in to comfort him.

So, here I am, well before dawn, dreaming of the Sneak Peeks at Gingerscraps! No crying from me! I am so excited to show you glimpses of what is coming to the store this Friday! And dance dance dance! Friday will be here soon!!!! Yee haw!!!!

Let’s get started! Check out all these fabulous colors, tasty templates, and the great LOs the CT has been busy making for us! Yummm!!!! These are totally terrific!! I love each and every scrumptious one of them!

And here we go!

A truly colorful collab from craft-tastrophic designs and joyful heart designs…

Here’s a fun LO using a terrific and tempting template from our guest designer, Secret Stash!

Totally awesome Awesomeness by Wyld Web Designs & Kathy Winters Designs….

And a boisterous beauty from Keep In Touch Designs…

Pretty kit by Craft-tastrophic combined with Secret Stash’s template :


Please pull up a mouse, and a coffee, and join me as I dream of what the full kits will look like and how I can use them in my scrapping projects! I think I have a use for each one of these in mind.

Now, if only it were Friday and I could get my mouse on them!!!


Have a great week! See you at the friendliest Digi Place in the World!!!  (I think the little guy is finally drifting off to sleep!)

Sweet Dreams,
