Congratulations to ordazd for winning LOTW!  This is such a striking LO. I love the black and white photo with the pop of bright pink paper. The simple cluster looks awesome with the dramatic photo too!  Click the image to leave her some love or click here to view her entire Gingerscraps Gallery.

Fresh Baked: November 16, 2012

Oh my. Do I have so much to be thankful and grateful for right now. My son needed glasses. Have you ever priced those? I’m thankful that we have insurance that covered all but $5 of his exam. I wish it would have covered more for his glasses, but I am so thankful that I was able to get them for him. I am also so thankful for the friends that I have surrounded around me. Without them, I do not know where exactly I would be in life.

Speaking of friends, this week, a new monthly mix is being released. Inspired Designs, Kathy Winters, Pixelily Designs, Roseytoes, and Z Pink Boudoir Designs worked together on this amazing new collab! It is just perfect for all friendships.

The CT really loved playing with the kit. They were raving over it. You don’t have to take my word for it. Just look at some of the layouts they’ve created!

Fresh Baked: Another New Designer

I love writing these newsletters! I love sharing that we have a new designer joining us. It makes me feel all giddy inside.

Today, we have ViolaMoni joining the squad here at Gingerscraps!

As we always do, we asked her tell us a little about herself, and this is what she had to share with us:

I’m Monica, aka ViolaMoni, 24yo, from Milan, a beautiful city in the north of Italy. I just finished my art studies at the university and now I’m looking for a job: my dream is to open my own studio, where I can teach painting and drawing to children and adults. I live with my parents and my old (17yo) dog, Chicco.
I love theatre, cinema and art in generally. I’m a creative person, I like painting, drawing, photography ….but I don’t like cooking! 😉
I hope you like my designs!

Oh, I have always wanted to go to Milan! I bet it is just absolutely GORGEOUS there!

Monica has a great sale for everyone. I love sales. I just adore them. I always buy way too much during them.

Here are just a few of the great designs that Monica has in her store:

Oh, these designs are great! I am so excited! Make sure you welcome Monica in the forum, and I will see you again on Friday!

Challenge Spotlight – Color Challenge

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday! Sorry I missed you last week, I was sick something wicked: 101 fever, body aches, chills–the whole nine yards. It’s going around, so I guess that means fall and winter are finally coming to the south, right? Yay, I’m tired of 90 degree days! I’m ready to load up the fireplace, cuddle up in my warm winter pajamas and scrap the nights away! To get you in the fall state of mind, this week I am spotlighting the color challenge hosted by JoyLynn of Blue Heart Scraps and she’s chosen a color palette perfect for the new season! Take a look:

I love the warm, earth tones with the pretty blues for a bit of a cool touch. This is definitely an excellent palette to get you started scrapping some of your new (or old!) fall photos. With a lovely color challenge like this, the ladies in the forum have already gone to town creating some really lovely layouts. If you want some inspiration, you’ve got it!
