Fresh Baked: November 23, 2012

Good Morning, Gingerscraps fans! In the States, yesterday was Thanksgiving, the day of remembering all that we are thankful for.

We are so lucky to be a part of this world, one that allows us to connect with someone so easily via the internet. I’m so thankful that I have friends that I have “met”, and I love each and every single one of them. I’m quite sure you have friends you feel the same way about.

The Monthly Mix for November is “Friendship” and the Attitude of Gratitude buffet really just meshes so well. I decided to choose two buffet layouts and a third being from the Monthly Mix.

A beautiful timeline created by dodgeladee. I love the use of just the blues and the sunflowers!

Created by jbdolfin. I love the cluster work. It’s just gorgeous!

Created by chigirl. I just love the way the little banner word arts are used, and the amazing clusters!

In the States, the day after Thanksgiving is full of lots of frantic shopping and great deals! Everyone is exhausted, and in dire need of some coffee and sweet treats. Gingerscraps knows all about that, so we’re having a nice little sale to help give you that boost you might need!

I cannot wait to see what’s going to be for sale. I don’t know. I really don’t! I know some kits I’m dying to have, and I hope to see them in there!

There are a lot of sales going on! Not just the Coffee Shop. Lots of designers are having sales for this weekend, as well. Make sure you check them out!

There’s more to be grateful about! There’s a new FWP grab bag. This month, it was created by Terra, of Sugar Kissed Designs. It’s just beautiful!

Sneak Peek!

Hi everybody and Happy Thanksgiving!  Today is a special day to show thanks for what we are grateful for. I am so blessed for a wonderful, loving family here at home and at Gingerscraps.  I can’t believe we are at the end of the month already!!!  I have no idea where the time has gone, but I know it has gone by way to quickly.  So, before I take up too much of your day I want to share a few layouts with you that are from some great new kits that will be released on Friday.  Don’t forget that they will be on sale and while your there don’t forget to check out all the other sales that are going on for Black Friday.

Here is a great kit that will help you catch up with some October layouts in case you have fallen behind.  It looks great!  I really like that haunted house.

Adorable Pixels did a great job with this kit.  I love the green in this kit!  What a fun way to celebrate winter traditions.  That green garland is superb. I have the perfect pictures for this.

The layered look of this layout is perfect and would you look at that glitter wordart….looks lovely!

Well that’s it for this week. Make sure you remember to check out the store for wonderful sales for this weekend.   All the designers did a terrific job once again.  I  hope you all have a Happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Challenge Spotlight – Desktop Challenge

Hey howdy hey and happy turkey day! How is it already Thanksgiving? Where did the year go?! The weather is FINALLY cooling off here in Texas and the winter holidays are quickly approaching! As I like to say, it’s the super bowl of crafting and scrapping! 😀 This week I am spotlighting a challenge with a freebie, the desktop challenge hosted by Ivonne of Craft-tastrophic Designs! I really, really like her template for this month’s desktop challenge!

 Isn’t it just the cutest template?! It’s reminiscent of ornaments and I love the overlapped circles. With a fun freebie template like this, you know the creations are just rolling in! Here a few I like from the forum:

By mamaape

By dodgeladee

By Lisa

Lovely, all of them! I love Suzanne’s patterned wall that reminds me of a chimney, Lisa’s pine needles and I especially love the crafty realism April accomplished with the buttons and ornament stickers. Awesome job, ladies–you rock! 🙂

Now that you’ve got some inspiration going, it’s your turn to join in the fun! All of our monthly challenges are worth points towards a superfun prize! Check out the rewards system and see what you can win just for playing along! Keep track of what you’ve completed in the November Challenge Points Tracking thread so we can get you a reward once the month is over. As always, any questions about this or any of the other monthly challenges can be sent over to the Cookie Jar. 🙂

Alright, I’ve got to get back to school work and holiday crafting. And I guess I should do my desktop for next month, as well! 😉 Y’all have a great week and a happy Thanksgiving to my US friends! See everyone next week for the last November challenge spotlight! Adios! 🙂
