August Featured Designers – Blue Heart Scraps and Wimpychompers Creations

Welcome to August. Is everyone ready for school to begin? I have one headed back to college for her last year and one sitting this college year out and getting a job instead. I’m sure everyone is ready for a routine again.

With a new month comes new Featured Designers. This month we are featuring Blue Heart Scraps and Wimpychompers Creations. I sent them our fun (and somewhat wacky) questions to answer. Let’s see what they gave us.

First up is JoyLynn of Blue Heart Scraps.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

That’s tough, because there are so many places that I’ve never had the opportunity to see. And, then there are some places (like Germany and France) that I’ve been that I’d love to take my children to see. But, today? I’d probably choose Australia. I’ve had a very, very dear friend there (that I met online!) for more than 10 years. I’d love to finally get the opportunity to meet her, and let her meet my boys!

If you had a warning label, what would yours say?

Caution: Extreme Awesomeness In Use!

What is one thing you will never do again?

Have a child. I love the two I have, and though part of me would love a little girl…my two boys are more than enough!

What’s your favorite movie?

That changes almost as often as my underwear! We are HUGE movie fans in this house! So, can I be cheesy and choose the Minion Movie?

Do you love or hate rollercoasters?

LOVE!!!

Do you believe there is intelligent life in outer space?

I think it’s a bit crazy to think we’re the only living things in the universe.

What was the last thing you ate?

Pizza – nom nom nom

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

Neon Green

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Oh, I have so many, lol (thank you OCD!) The worst, though, may be when people spell my name with a lower case l. JoyLynn – my first and middle name squished together, so 2 capital letters! And even numbers! *shudder*

Pirates or Ninjas?

Argh!

Country or City?

I live in the city – but I’d love to be in the country with a huge garden and a few animals and no internet! 😉

Morning or Night?

Night

Indoors or Outdoors?

Outdoors

Chocolate or Vanilla?

Vanilla

Cats or Dogs?

Where’s the neither option? 😉 Cats are boring, and dogs scare me silly, lol!

Who did you look up to as a kid?

My dad. Hands down.

What is the one thing that makes you happy despite any mood?

My boys! One hug, one giggly laugh, one “Mommy, I sure do love you!” and I’m smiling. No matter what life’s throwing at me.

Do you have any tattoos? If yes what and where are they- If no do you want any and what would you get?

None, but I’ve always wanted one. I’d get an infinity symbol of the word enough on my wrist. A reminder than I am always enough.

Name one television character that you simply adore?

Dr. Sheldon Cooper. Bazinga!

Thanks JoyLynn. Make sure to check out her GingerScraps Store, Facebook page and Blog.

Next up, let’s see how Christina of Wimpychompers Creations answered the same questions.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Somewhere tropical and with clear blue water. Living in California I like the beach but the water is so polluted and dirty it’s kind of gross. Definitely wish it wasn’t that way.

If you had a warning label, what would yours say?

Love this question! Um… mine would probably say “Mama Bear… don’t mess with the kids!”

What is one thing you will never do again?

Leave a pot of water boiling and forget about it. I’ve done this a couple of times and it never ended well (especially when sanitizing bottle nipples… that one was a mess!)

What’s your favorite movie?

I love the Night at the Museum series because I can watch it with the family.

Do you love or hate rollercoasters?

I like them but hate sharp drops or flipping upside down so it’s an in between answer.

Do you believe there is intelligent life in outer space?

I think sometimes we are missing intelligent life on earth! lol. Honestly I haven’t thought too much about it, definitely none in our galaxy.

What was the last thing you ate?

Air popped popcorn… which I burned half of and had to throw out.

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

Golden Yellow

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

People who let disabilities hold them back, or worse enable their disabled child to think they can’t do anything!

Pirates or Ninjas?

Pirates

Country or City?

Suburbs. lol. I have lived country style forever but think city sounds nice.

Morning or Night?

Night

Indoors or Outdoors?

Both!? Depends on the weather right?

Chocolate or Vanilla?

Chocolate

Cats or Dogs?

Dogs

Who did you look up to as a kid?

My grandma I think.

What is the one thing that makes you happy despite any mood?

My son Alex (11), he always knows what to do to make me feel better and gives great hugs.

Do you have any tattoos? If yes what and where are they- If no do you want any and what would you get?

Nope, too scared of needles! If I did I would have flowers or some gorgeous script font and a bird flying.

Name one television character that you simply adore?

Jessica Day (Zooey Deschanel) on New Girl. She’s awesome!

Thanks Christina!! Check out her GingerScraps Store, Facebook page as well.

And remember, they have teamed up to bring you this month’s Daily Download and let me tell you, it’s HUGE!! Check out the sneak peek.

Happy August! It’s time to start prepping for back to school, and the, hopefully, cooling down from summer!

It is the First of the month, and that means the revel of our new Buffet!! Don’t forget the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month)!

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

The designers definitely each made the palette their own and came up with some gorgeous designs.

Scrapping Survivor *Lost at Sea* – Week 2

It’s Week 2 in Scrapping Survivor *Lost at Sea* and things are getting fun. Make sure to check out the Gallery to see some of the great and creative layouts from last week. So many ways to make yourself a pirate.

Week 1 Gallery

Let’s see what our Survivor contestants are up to this week:

Wow, you are pretty impressed with yourself and your friends! You pulled it off! You were able to act like one of the pirates and wander around the cruise ship undetected!

You secretly tell other women to spread the word, and soon you begin to see ladies you know from GingerScraps, walking around and acting like pirates! Hopefully the real pirates won’t catch on!!
You decide that it is time to come up with a plan to get rescued from this situation.

Of course there is no way for you to call or text for help, you’re in the middle of the sea! How about the call for help, from the old days…. A message in a bottle!! You tell all your fellow GS friends the plan and you all begin to craft your messages, to be thrown in the sea and hopefully end up in the hands of someone willing and able to help.

Week 2- {Message in a Bottle} *The Challenge*
This layout is all about your “message in a bottle”. You need to write a letter to the person you think (or you wish) would come to your rescue. This person can be living or passed on, they can be a person you know, or someone that you wish would save you (like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson).

The Layout Rules-

  • This layout is all about your “message in a bottle”
  • The LO must have your message to who you would like to “save” you, use journaling to write your message.
  • The LO MUST have at least one photo of the person you are writing to.
  • There is no maximum numbers of photos allowed.
  • In the Tribal Council forum post, type out your journaling, so all players can read your journaling.
  • Templates ARE ALLOWED in this challenge.
  • You must use ALL 100% GingerScraps products when creating your Layout.
  • **IMPORTANT** During the week 1 challenge I was lenient about the 100% GS products rule. I did state that I would allow 1 unique element. HOWEVER, this did cause some confusion, so moving forward- we must stick to the rules of 100% GS Products! Fonts do not count, you are allowed to use any fonts you prefer. But ALL other products on your layout must be from GS designers. Thank you for understanding, keeping the rules clear is important and helps everything run smooth.
  • *Remember* Always credit the products you are using, when posting in the gallery. List the credits in the description box when uploading. When checking layouts, I need to be sure all products are from GS designers- so credits are crucial!!

Here are a few tips/ ideas for your layout composition-

  • Use this opportunity to write a love letter to someone you love, tell them why you love them and admire them.
  • Be silly and create a total fantasy layout or your dream rescue aka… My earlier example of being rescued by The Rock 😉 yea, I kinda love him lol
  • Write an actual letter then scan it in and use that on your layout.
  • Have fun finding fonts that look like your handwriting (or what you wish your handwriting looked like).
  • Take a look at the Official Scrapping Survivor Season 6 *Lost At Sea* collab! It is an awesome collab and packed full of goodies perfect for your Survivor challenges.

Check out the Gallery for the Week 2 Challenges and leave some love.
