Fresh Baked: May 01, 2013

Good Morning! It’s May! Can you believe it? We’ve already finished a quarter of 2013! May is a great month! School is finishing, spring is (supposed to be) in full swing!

Speaking of spring, this month’s buffet is called Spring Fling. It’s full of fun bright colors that just say “I’m ready for a change of scenery”!

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

Fresh Baked: March 01, 2013

Bye February! You never stay around long enough for us to even adjust to the fact that it’s a new month, and then you’re gone. Can you believe that we’re at March already? Sixteen days until green beer, gold coins, and when everyone becomes Irish. At least that’s how it feels. As the mom of a St. Patrick’s Day child, it’s a fun holiday for us to celebrate.

The colors surrounding March seems to always be rainbows, and this month’s buffet is no exception. It’s such a fun and happy buffet, as well. You’ll be saying “Lucky Me” when you scrap with it!

The designers really showed their playful sides with this buffet!

We went with a video, to help save on loading times. Let us know what you think! To disable the sound on this video just click the speaker symbol on the player.

The CT had a lot of fun finding pictures that fit the theme, and I think that they did a great job, as well!

I just love how wonderful all of their layouts turned out! To disable the sound on this video just click the speaker symbol on the player.

Since it’s a new month, it’s time for a BAKE SALE! I don’t know about you, but I just LOVE the bake sale! You never know what you’re going to find in there, but it’s always something that you just can’t live without!

Remember, that when you spend $10 in the store, you get an amazing grab bag created by one of our amazing designers. This month, Terra, of Sugar Kissed Designs created a wonderful one for y’all!

Today, I’m so excited to tell you that we have a new designer joining the team.

Tracy of Trixie Scraps Designs!

Tracy, aka Trixie of Trixie Scraps Designs, happily opens her shop with us today! She has over 10 years of experience as a scrapbooker, beginning first with paper and switching to digi in 2007. In October 2008, she opened her first store as a digital designer and has never looked back! Tracy just recently relocated to the Kansas City area with her husband Erick and their two dogs, Diamond and Lucy. She’s a devoted aunt to three nieces, one nephew (and one on the way) and she spends a lot of time with her cousin’s three little boys, as well. She loves popcorn-flavored Jelly Bellys, Mexican food, country music and reality TV. Trixie’s catalog is chuck full of stunning collections, complete with gorgeous paper patterns, versatile "paper scrap" style elements, and plenty of add-ons to help you complete beautiful pages quickly and easily. We are sure you will find lots to love in her new store here at Ginger Scraps!

Here are just a few of her designs that she has here at Gingerscraps:

One of February’s guest designers has decided to stay with us another month! We’re happy to keep her! Aga of Jimbo Jambo Designs. Make sure you check out her store! She has some wonderful templates!

Wow! It’s time to reveal February’s Daily Download!

Last month, Monica, of ViolaMoni had provided a SERIOUSLY cute kit!

I love the non-traditional love colors! I don’t know about you, but I crave chocolate every time I saw the preview. Excuse me while I run out and grab some chocolate real quick.

Okay, I’m back! Did you miss me? Okay, sorry, I’ll stop now.

This month, Pixelily Designs has lovingly created an adorable kit for y’all!

I see an ellie-phant! otherwise known as an “elephant”!

Remember, the links are only up for about 5 days. After that, they’re removed, so if you miss a download, you’ll have to wait until the next month to buy the kit!

Oh, don’t think we’re done yet! It’s FRIDAY! That means even more fresh baked goodness!

So many great and amazing designs! I’m having troubles deciding what I’m going to get first! I’m sure you’re having the same problem!

It’s always a sad moment when a designer decides that it’s time for her to retire. Char, of Wyld Web Designs has made that decision. Before she leaves, she wanted to have one last hoorah, so take advantage of this great sale while you still can!

Char, we’ll miss you, and we wish you all of the best in your future endeavors!

Connie Prince wanted to make sure that I let y’all know about her sale!!

With that, I bid you adieu. Enjoy your weekend!

Fresh Baked: HAPPY NEW YEAR!

5… 4… 3… 2… 1… HAPPY NEW YEAR! Can you believe it? It’s 2013!! 2012 was filled with ups and downs, a few bumps and bruises, but plenty of good friends and love. At least it was here at Gingerscraps. Gingerscraps saw a new look, lots of new designers joining the team, and the sadness of a few leaving us.

New Year’s is the time for celebration, and for reflecting. It’s the time to set new resolutions and review the ones we made the year prior. This month’s buffet, Hopes and Dreams is perfect for that!

Fresh Baked: Happy December

Can you believe it’s already December? Thirty-one more days, and we’ll be looking at 2013!

The winds are blowing in from the north, and the breath is visible in the air. There are white flakes falling from the sky. The winter season is upon us, and it’s time to prep for the snow.

Some areas have already had snow come to their areas, and I will be honest. I am completely jealous. I was born during a snowfall. Being a December baby, you tend to end up with that. Lately, we haven’t seen any snow. It makes me sad. Hopefully, we get some this year.

Why, you ask, am I going on about snow? It’s time for a new buffet!  This month’s theme is snow, snow, and more snow! Snowball Fight!

Snowball Fight is full of fun elements and papers, just perfect for all of those snow pictures. If you don’t have any snow pictures, pictures of the beach would work just fine, I think. Even something Christmas related would be perfect!

Fresh Baked: November 02, 2012

I have so much to be grateful for right now that I can’t even begin to explain it! So much good stuff is going on. iDSD has officially begun, and the sales are amazing. Today, I get to show you the grab bags the designers have put together for it! We also have a new designer joining our team! Sandy Pie Creations!

Before I do, though, I have to show off a few of the layouts that have been created using the newest buffet, Attitude of Gratitude. It was so hard to limit myself to just three this week! There are so many great ones to choose from!

Created by brenian4ever. I love the use of just two colors. The treatment of the photos makes it even better!

Created by beckyroy. I love the big use of the stamped title. And the adding of the same title in the tab really makes the layout work so beautifully.

Created by beckyroy. I swear, I didn’t know I chose the same person twice. I was only looking at the layouts. I just loved the “Brudder” part. It really made the layout speak to me, in a fashion.

Don’t forget about iDSD!! There’s a LOT going on!

The sale has been extended to the 9th, so that those affected by Sandy are able to get their power back. Our thoughts and prayers are with the NE of the United States at this time, hoping for a fast recovery to a normalcy.

The bake sale is still going on, as well. Oh goodness.

Now I get to share with your our newest designer!!

Hi, my name is Sandy. I grew up an Air Force brat mostly in the midwest, but went to 7 different elementary schools. I married an Air Force guy and a few years ago we finally left military life and beautiful Las Vegas to settle down as close to family as we could get, and ended up in Northern Minnesota, only a 8 hour drive from “home”. When I’m not scrapbooking (!) I am a SAHM to two boys, 13 & 9, and blushing bride to my dear Hubs of 7 years. And a Pinterest and addict. We’re a house full of animal lovers with 3 cats and 1 really large dog, who oddly enough thinks he’s a cat, a 128 pound cat!
I have been scrapbooking for what seems like forever, most collecting memorabilia and paper scrap supplies, but I have paper commitment issues so I didn’t get many pages done. (I have the same problem with fabric and planning the quilts I will “make” with them.) I found digi scrap a few years ago and found I could use the graphics manipulation skills I’d learned working as an engraver in an awards, trophy and framing shop to create fun 3-d projects and cards with digital designs I could reuse again and again. (My favorite part!) After some encouragement from a couple of designers I CT for, I started selling my hybrid designs a few months ago. And now I’m at Ginger Scraps, and in fantastic company.

If you couldn’t tell, she’s a hybrid designer. With Julie on a leave of absence, we’ve been short a hybrid designer! I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us! For now, she has one new item for us to play with.

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!

Fresh Baked: New Buffet and iDSD!

Oh, hello November. Wow. October has come, she has gone. The festivals have all ended, and now we’re looking forward to, at least in the States, for Thanksgiving. Those not are starting their countdown to their winter holidays.

Or… you could be going iDSD!! DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY!! There are lots of things planned at Gingerscraps, and it’s going to be SO much fun!

The sale has been extended to the 9th, so that those affected by Sandy are able to get their power back. Our thoughts and prayers are with the NE of the United States at this time, hoping for a fast recovery to a normalcy.

The theme this month is “Attitude of Gratitude”. The colors are amazing, but honestly, I have to say the theme is my favorite. This past week has reminded me, personally, of how much we have to be grateful for. We have a roof over our head, a working computer, and pictures upon pictures to scrap. Right now, I’m set for everything. I can take anything, as long as I have the love of family and friends. Do you agree?

It’s the first of the month, so that means the Gingerbread Man is running through, sticking things in the Bake Sale! You never know what you’ll find in there!

The goodies that the designers have put together are just AMAZING, and I’m so excited to show them to you!

Fresh Baked for October 05, 2012

Oh, brr. Fall has really set in here. It’s chilly, and the wind has a definite bite to it. It’s going to make that trip to the RenFest something to remember.

I love RenFests. I love the time period they’re set in, and I just love all the costumes. I also love that it’s set in the woods. That means lots of trees. At ours, they hang mirrors from the trees, and the capture the light in such cool ways. I could spend a few hours just watching the reflections on the ground.

Speaking of fests and fall, have you seen October’s buffet created by the Gingerscraps designers? It’s called Fall Festival, and it would completely work for any sort of festival. I picked out a few layouts that I just adored in the gallery using the buffet items.

Created by Inspired Designs. Yeah, even the designers can’t resist this buffet. I love the pictures. I love babies with just a few little teeth!

Created by JillW. I love the filter/effect on the photo. The clusters are gorgeously done.

Created by MamaCake. I love the clusters and the scatters. Such beautiful work.

Before I get to that, though, we can’t forget the Bake Sale! You still have today to catch some items on sale!

I’d like to remind you about the Monthly Mix, created by Unforgettable Moments, Twin Mom Scraps, Joyful Heart, Find Your Bliss, and Colie’s Corner. It’s a beautiful kit, and so well done!

It’s so perfect for this time of year, with everyone back in school. The colors also work for field trips, and so much more.

Don’t forget that when you spend $10 in the store, you get it this beauty, for free.

So, while you go and check out all the awesome yummy goodies in the store, I’m going to go find myself a nice warm cup of coffee or cocoa, my comfy warm slippers, and opening up Photoshop. I don’t know about you, but I’m totally in the mood to scrap now!

Fresh Baked: New Guest Designer, New Buffet, and More

I just cannot believe that September is over. It flew by! I’m excited for October though. Pumpkin patch visits will be happening. Leaves will be piling on the ground, begging to be jumped into!

This month, it’s going to be all about the festivals that happen in the fall. For my family, we look forward to Ren Fest, which we usually go to in September, but this year, we’re going in October.

Do you have a favorite festival that you look forward to going to each year? If you do, then you’ll love the new buffet created by the Gingerscraps designers! It’s called Fall Festival.

Before I get to that, though, we can’t forget the Bake Sale!

Oh, I just can’t take all the goodness, and I haven’t even started.

The colors are perfect for most any layout involving any aspect of fall. The designers went all out and did an amazing job! This month, to show off better what each designer designed, we’re breaking up the big image into several ones. [Read more…]

New Buffet, Guest Designer, So Much More!

Well hi! Didn’t I just see you? Well, write to you, I guess is more accurate!

It’s almost officially fall. Monday, in the States, is Labor Day, the official end of summer. The leaves will be changing from green to browns, and reds, and golds. Or, if you’re on the other side of the globe, from reds, browns, and golds to green again.

Life is beautiful and wonderful like that! There’s something about the changing of the seasons that makes you reflect on the good and happy things in life.

This month, the buffet designed by the Gingerscraps team is perfect for scrapping those moments of reflection. Those moments when you just can’t help but take a picture!

Before I share with you the amazing buffet, it’s September first, which means of course a bake sale!

Now, don’t leave just yet! I know you’re itching to see the sale goodies but I have to show you the buffet, and a few more things first!!

As you can see, the colors are soft but bold, light and dark, perfectly blended into simple elegance. Find the beauty in the every day and enhance it with this gorgeous buffet.

The CT worked so hard putting together some truly beautiful layouts. I know, I keep saying beautiful, but it really does fit, but it really is!

When we switch months, we switch out the Free With Purchase! This month, Pixels by Jen has created September’s new Grab-bag and it is gorgeous! Remember: when you spend $10, you get this for FREE!!

As we say goodbye to our August Guest Designer, Sugary Fancy, we say hello to September’s Guest Designer, Ocean Wide Designs!

Isn’t she a cutie? We asked her to tell us about herself, and she told us she’d try not to be boring!

I live in Central California with my husband, Jeff, and our furry-babies… Riley, a small terror… I mean, terrier! and our two guinea pigs – Sparkles and Bubbles. Jeff and I love to travel the west coast, we like doing outdoorsy things like hiking, geocaching, kayaking, fishing, camping, etc. I work from home running our small businesses, including the Real Life Scrapped social network! When I have the time I LOVE to read cozy mysteries, bake goodies that go straight to my hips, work off those goodies with Zumba & my treadmill, and do crafty things like crocheting & embroidery.

An animal lover, traveler, adventurer, business owner, and crafter?! That sounds anything but boring! I think she’ll fit right in with the GingerScraps family!

Here are just a few of the designs she’s prepared for her opening. You’ll definitely find something in there that you’ll enjoy!

Oh, I think I see a few that I’m going to definitely enjoy playing with! What about you?

I think I know what you’re looking for right now. You’re expecting the full-preview of that daily download, aren’t you? Well, okay, since you waited patiently.

As you know, Kathy Winters created August’s daily download, which was ABSOLUTELY gorgeous, and SO fun!!

Now, this month’s was created by Twin Mom Scraps! It follows the happy theme that both August’s Daily Download and the buffet has. It’s so sweet! I completely love it!!

Tell me, doesn’t that just look just perfect for scrapbooking?

Before I say adios and go enjoy some Saturday morning cuddles with my family, I want to let you know that the challenges for August might be over, but September starts them all over again! So, make sure you check out the forum and put those new kits to work!!

See ya again on Friday!!
