Fresh Baked: April 01, 2014

Good morning! Can you believe that it’s already April? I promise, it’s not a trick! There’s no April Foolin’ in this newsletter!

This month, there’s no official theme to the buffet. There’s a unifying color palette, and the kits play together beautifully. Enjoy the April 2014 {Designer’s Choice} buffet series this month!

We have NEW Buffet options!! You asked for it, and we listened! The GS Buffet will now included FULL size kits!! In addition to the mix and match packs, you can now also find full size kits in the buffet section. The price point has been adjusted accordingly. Everything in the Buffet will always be $4.00 and under. Every month the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month). That means Full kits for $2 and a ton of mix and match packs all for $1!! You will not want to miss this!

The designers all had their own take on what the colors and theme said to them! I love the variety!

The designers knocked it out of the park. The designs are just amazing and so well done!

The CT did such a great job showing how well all of the kits blend. They all did wonderful work!

This is just a few of the layouts. Keep an eye out in future newsletters to see more. Maybe even one of yours, if you make sure you put it into the Buffet section of the gallery!

It’s time for the monthly Bake Sale!!

Here are just a few of the items you’ll find in the Bake Sale:

This month, we have a new designer guesting with us this month: MHK Scraps!

We asked her to give us a little insight into herself, and this is what she had to share with us:

My name is Amanda and I design under the name MHK Scraps. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for just about 15 years and we have 3 children, Michaella (14), Hunter (10) and Kailee (5). We also have a Shih Tzu named Tinkerbell and raise Dwarf Hotot rabbits. I have lived in the southwest corner of Minnesota my entire life. When I’m not designing or scrapping, I’m teaching preschoolers at a local Head Start program. I started paper scrapping when I was in high school and switched over completely to digital in 2009 after I had my youngest. When I started digi-scrapping I found I was always changing kits to better suit my pictures, so I decided to start designing. In 2011, I entered a contest and won second place and that’s when I really got my start. Besides scrapbooking, some of the other things I enjoy spending time doing are camping with my family and traveling, photography, baking and trying my hand at just about any other crafty things.

And here are just a few of the items she has to offer here at Gingerscraps:

This month’s Monthly Mix is called “Our Planet”. Perfect for all of those “going green” layouts! It was collabed between Created by Jill, Aprilisa, and Inspired Designs.

Isn’t it just wonderful?

It’s time for a new Daily Download! I’m going to show you March’s first, the full reveal!

Isn’t it wonderful? Thank you CathyK Designs and Created by Jill Scraps for sharing this wonderful kit with us!

April’s kit follows the theme of April Showers. It’s full of fun rain and water references. It’s a beautiful collab between Cherekaye Designs and LissyKay Designs!

Remember, when you spend $10 in the store, you get a great grab bag!

Starting January 2014 we will have a new and very exciting challenge reward program!! Complete any 10 challenges within the month, and you will receive a brand new designer collab! Each month we will offer a brand new GingerBread Ladies collab as a reward for completing the GS challenges.

I hope that you enjoy your March! May it be filled with rainbows, spring-like weather, and maybe a couple of leprechauns! See you on Friday!
