WHOOSH!! OH WOW! June just flew away. Got it’s passport, hopped a plane, and headed to a cooler, calmer scene. June has been jam-packed with all kinds of events, and July isn’t looking like it’s going to slow down. So, buckle your seatbelt, grab your favorite pillow and blanket, and get ready for the ride of your life.
Before you can start any vacation, you have to have some yummy snacks. The best time to get those snacks? When they’re on sale, of course!
It’s the first, which means that there’s a bake sale going on! Whether you’re just wanting that quick snack to tide you over until you can stop at McDonald’s for that “real” breakfast, or you’re needing something delicious and yummy, you have to check out the bake sale! While you’re there, make sure you get a pretty picture for your passport! You just might need it for this ride!
Nope, not time to leave yet! You’ve got your snacks though, right? Good! Time to get those bags completely packed. Stuff them to the gills.
In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a little theme going on with this. I’m talking all about traveling. It’s for a very good reason! It’s time for a NEW BUFFET! So many of you have been requesting travel-related kits, and Gingerscraps has listened! I’m SO THRILLED to introduce you to Away We Go! The designers have gone all out. Instead of taking a vacation, they’re going to help you scrap your vacations. Whether you go by boat, plane, or car, there’s going to be something for you! There’s roads, and passports, stamps and flairs out the wazoo. The designers did an AMAZING job!
The CT isn’t taking a vacation either. Not this month. Nope, they’re doing some stay-cations and giving you plenty of scrapping inspiration. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to hop in my car and just drive, see where the road takes me, just so I have an excuse to use all of this buffet!
So, the bags are packed? Plenty of inspiration? Do you have your camera?
While you look for that, remember that when you spend $10 in the store, you get an amazing grab bag. This month’s was created by Ryan, of Roseytoes, and it’s JAM-PACKED full of stuff.
When you’re on a trip, sometimes you buy souvenirs for friends and family who didn’t come along, right? Those gift bags in those shops can be pretty cheesy, or they’re just plain and boring and really say nothing about the person you’re giving the gift to!
As we say goodbye to Siamese Studio and thank her for her time, we welcome Wendy, of WendyBird Designs, who is guest designing at Gingerscraps for the month of July!
As we always do, we asked Wendy to tell us a little about herself, and this is what she had to share with us:
Hi, I’m Wendy of WendyBird Designs! I live in sunny (and very hot right now) AZ with my 13 year old son, my boyfriend, his 2 teenagers and our cat. I’ve been digital scrapping since 2008, but I’ve always been crafty, so I when I discovered hybrid scrapping, I knew it was meant to be! I’ve been designing hybrid templates since 2010 and I love being able to do all of my project designs on the computer and still get messy with scissors and glue!
She sounds like SO much fun! I’m excited to get my fingers all sticky! It’ll be some nice things to play with when we’re on the road!
Here are a couple projects she’s shared with you to get you started!!
Okay, time to put the luggage in the trunk of the car (or the boot, as some dialects know it). Oh, did you see that calendar sitting on the floor of the trunk? I wonder why it’s there?
DAILY DOWNLOAD! Of course! It’s like a little advent calendar, but you get to enjoy a new one each month!!
First, we need to give out a huge thank you to Jennifer, of Luv Ewe Designs, for her amazing kit that she had for download every single day of June? She created Sky’s the Limit, and it was seriously so cute! I could tell by the comments that you all really enjoyed the kit!!
Now, I’m super thrilled to share this month’s Daily Download designer! You’ve probably caught at least one of her Friday Late Night Scraps (if you haven’t, you need to ;)). If you guessed Terra, of Sugar Kissed Designs, you couldn’t be more right! The kit she designed for July is ADORABLE in all the right ways!
I hope you enjoy the pieces as much as I think Terra enjoyed creating them! It’s a HUGE kit! I hear there’s around 5-7 pieces per download
Well, you’re all packed, and ready to go!
There is ONE small bit of information I should impart on you! Remember the rules of the road. In the case of Gingerscraps, they’ve changed a little. I’m talking about the Challenge Requirements. Instead of getting percent-off discounts, you now have a chance to get FREE BUFFET pieces. It doesn’t have to be the current buffet, but ANY buffet that the Gingerscraps team has created! Pretty cool right?! There’s even a new challenge or two floating around, so make sure you check out the challenge area! There’s a nice relaxing booth there with your name all over it!
I hate to see you leave, so don’t. Just unpack those bags, put everything away, and just hang with us! If you do go on vacation, share with us some of your experiences and pictures! We’d love to see them!!
Bon voyage, until next time!!
