As always your vote counts so head over the the forum to vote for the next LOTW winner. You can be a LOTW winner too, all you have to do is scrap! Happy Scrapping.

Weekly Wrap-up: Cheese!

One week left!

Until what?, you ask, well, September! That’s right, another month coming very quickly to a close. I feel like I’m losing my mind with how time is just falling through my fingertips!

With a week left and 10 challenges down, 3 to go (I always strive for 13!) I know I’ve got just enough time to finish. One of the challenges I need to work on is the Inspiration challenge, hosted by Amy P (Unforgettable Moments) this month.

My challenge for you is this… take a look at the ad below, find some inspiration from some aspect of the design of the ad, and make a scrap book page. I chose this particular ad because 1) it looked really cool, and 2) I thought it offered a lot of versatility for a lot of different kinds of pages!

Some ideas are… the larger picture, the series of smaller photos, the “tags;” (it could be the diagonal one or the one on the left), the title work with a subtitle, the entire layout, the travel theme, or something else I haven’t mentioned at all. Just scrap a page using the ad as inspiration.

I’ve definitely got some ideas, now just to see which evolves into my page. 🙂

I’m also working on my page from the Speed Scrap hosted by our lovely guest designer, Meg of Ocean Wide Designs. She gave us a super template to work with, and a great prompt! What makes YOU happy? Even if you didn’t make it to the Scrap&Chat with Meg, her prompt is still fantastic if you’ve got scrapper’s block.  So… what does make you happy?


That’s what makes me happy, well, one of several things of course. You know else makes me happy? Cheesy FREEBIES! (nice transition there, eh?) GingerScraps has a new Fan Freebie on Facebook and it is AWESOME.

Seriously. Being a Wisconsin girl, I totally CHEESED out when I saw this alpha by Wyld Web Designs.   All you’ve got to do is “Like” our Facebook page and it’s all yours!

Now I’m running away to do more things that make me happy, like family time! I know it’s a super short post today but I’m sure you don’t mind. Gives you more time to scrap! 😉

Have a happy Sunday!

Fresh Baked for September 21, 2012

It has truly been an eventful week! Things have been a little crazy, but in a good way, most of the time. Thursday, my brother-in-law married the love of his life, and I felt so blessed to be a part of it. It was amazing.

It reminds me of how life is so beautiful in the moments we get to share with those we love. Each moment is precious, and life can be fleeting. Getting to see two separate people become one in a union like that is pretty powerful.

I chose some layouts that remind me of the preciousness of life, using the Life is Beautiful buffet by the amazing designers here at Gingerscraps. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Created by scrapjrlgcp. I love seeing love shared between siblings, especially a newborn.

Created by jenevang. I love that quote!

Created by MamaCake. SO many pictures! I can never make a layout with that many pictures look good!

Remember, if you want your layout spotlighted in the newsletter, you have a chance! Make sure you create it using the current buffet, and upload to the buffet gallery.

When you spend $10, you get this for FREE! This month, Pixels by Jen has created September’s new Grab-bag and it is gorgeous!

I hope you’ll be there! I’m planning on it.

We’re almost finished with the month, but there are still plenty of challenges to partake in. Come and join us.

Sneak Peeks! What’s coming 9.21!

Happy Thursday!

It’s sneak peek time! There are some great templates and kits coming out tomorrow! Here are just a few of them…

First up is something by Blue Heart Scraps, something bold and fun and dare I say …lyrical?

I am totally loving those music notes!

Next we have what looks like a sweet batch of templates by Pretty in Green.

(using previously released A Match Made in Heaven Buffet)

(using a NEW kit by Z Pink Boudoir Designs)

And because I just love the look of that new kit by Z Pink Boudoir Designs, here is another peak at it!

I am lusting for all these Fall pages. While I write this up, I’ve got my windows open and it’s 54 degrees out, with a cool breeze. Fall is in the air and it gets me so giddy! I positively adore that little owl and foliage. Yes, foliage- I totally love leaves and branches!!

Lastly I’ve got a fun flowery sneak peek from Twin Mom Scraps.

The patterned papers look amazing!

Don’t forget Twin Mom Scraps is our Daily Download Designer this month too! Grab the download link each day and at the end of the month you’ll have a FULL FREE kit by the end of the month! (go back a post to grab today’s!)

That’s what I’ve got for you this morning, a little bit to leave you wanting a whole lot more!

Have a happy scrappy Thursday my friends!
